O’Reilly almost wins with a handspring crossbody off the ropes. Raven delivers a knee lift in the corner and finishes O’Reilly off with the Raven Effect for the win. (*1/2. O’Reilly showed off some fun offense or even attempted high spots in the loss. It was a little sloppy, which wasn’t a surprise by any means.)
3.) Mark Jindrak won his squash match with a spinning sit out powerbomb. That’s a much better finisher than his debut.
4.) Richards taunts Stamboli after faking a lockup. Stamboli shoves Richards out of a lockup and returns the taunting. Richards chops Stamboli followed by right hands in the corner.

Richards elbows Stamboli and runs into a press slam turned into a powerslam. Stamboli misses a top rope elbow drop. Richards nails Stamboli with a superkick to win the match. (*1/2. A decent match between these two and I’m really liking the momentum that Richards has been getting with clean wins on Heat in recent weeks. Stamboli has great agility, and just needs to put it all together to really breakout.)
5.) Molly gets wrist control on Jacqueline to start the match, but Jacqueline counters with a cradle for a two count. Molly keeps a headlock on Jacqueline, but is shoved into the ropes and shoulder blocks Jacqueline. Jacqueline arm drags Molly a few times. Molly bails to the floor to regroup.

Jacqueline elbows Molly to the mat for a near fall. Jacqueline kicks Molly several times. Jacqueline tries for a tornado DDT, but Molly blocks it. Molly pulls Jacqueline down off the middle rope in the corner and uses the ropes for leverage to win the match. (*1/4. They sure do love that rollup finish using the ropes for leverage by heels, don’t they? There were a couple of decent spots, but this didn’t hold my interest this time around.)
A subpar episode of Heat this week with nothing standing out and lacking entertainment for the most part.
