Final Thoughts:

What Worked: Kelly Sixx and Ashley Dunn. For a team that was introduced as a throwaway “jobber team”, they took their chance with both hands and delivered. Of course, the problem now is that if this was intended as a “one and done” booking, then it was pretty dumb to deliver the fans something that isn’t going to be followed up on. 

Elsewhere, the surprise debut of Matt Riddle was a nice one, but with that finish, it probably shouldn’t have been in the main event. With Drew Galloway off the show, it’s hard to pick a match that should have main evented.

What Didn’t Work: I wasn’t a big fan of the Viper/Kay Lee Ray match, particularly with all the interference that just made the referee look incompetent. They can do better, but if the story is “Bea Priestley’s got a bodyguard”, why is she interfering for her bodyguard? 

I’ll also add in “Alex Shane” again. His commentary is as atrocious as ever, and whilst I’m not a fan of the revolving door of commentators, they deserve to have someone more qualified.
