Red gets on a crucifix style side submission hold. Skipper breaks it up and then gets tagged in. Skipper hits a short arm clothesline as well as a stiff kick to the back. Daniels comes back in, and Skipper bodyslams him on top of Red for a nice double team move. Red attempts to fight back but to no avail. Skipper comes back in. Red gets in a kick to the face out of the corner and tags in Dutt. Dutt fights off Skipper and Daniels for a while, and he then executes a moonsault off the middle rope on to both. Dutt nails a tiltawhirl DDT on Skipper but Daniels breaks up the pin. Daniels back in now. Red makes a blind tag when Dutt hits the ropes and Daniels didn’t notice. Red comes flying in off the top rope on to an unexpecting Daniels. The finish came when Skipper interfered behind the referee’s back and nailed Red with a spin kick just as Red was setting up a move. After the kick, Daniels rolled Red up. Good opening match.

Hall says “chico” for the first time in years. Hall says AJ needs to get Hardy, and they need to follow Savage to the bus stop because the Kings are taking them to school. Does that mean the Kings of Wrestling are bus drivers? Nash says December 5th, the Kings of Wrestling take over wrestling in a stranglehold. A noticeable “boring” chant starts in the crowd. Nash says if the fans don’t want to hear him talk, maybe they want to him sing. Oh God. Nash says he wrote Monty Brown a little song. He pulls a couple lines out of his head and ends it saying the fans were quiet when he sang. Nash says he controls all of them. Nash says “bow to the Kings of Wrestling.” By this time he had me cracking up laughing. I didn’t know whether it was because Nash was funny or because I kept thinking about how lame the Kings of Wrestling name is.

Awesome match these two put on. Great heat from the crowd, and the match had a great build to it. I wasn’t expecting much in a long match from Brown since his matches usually last under 2 minutes, but he came through strong and looked good.
