Neville & Zack Ryder vs Stardust & Tyler Breeze
(referee: Darrick Moore)
Result: Neville pins Stardust after Red Arrow
Time: 6:27 (1 break)
Good match. Both teams had moments where they worked well as teams. The outcome was pretty up in the air with these guys, and that helped make the match even more fun to watch.
Paige vs Summer Rae
(referee: Ryan Tran)
Result: Paige wins via submission with the PTO
Pretty good match. It was mostly Paige beating up Summer (as it should be). I did like that they let the ladies talk before the match which gave it a bit more interest.
The Social Outcasts head to the ring. Heath Slater blames New Day for the Social Outcasts not being on Fastlane. Adam Rose says they’re not defensing against a bunch of teams, including Rad Wolf and the Mad Happy Connection. Curtis Axel gets angry about the nicknames, but as Bo Dallas tries to make things more positive, New Day interrupts.
Big E says no one cares about combinations of the Social Outcasts, because they’re booty. Bo Dallas calls Big E a booty. Big E gets frustrated with the lack of understanding from the Social Outcasts. Kofi then compares them to a bunch of stuff, but it just makes Slater angry.
Social Outcasts (Heath Slater & Curtis Axel &Adam Rose w/ Bo Dallas) vs New Day (Tag Champs)
(referee: Rod Zapata; guest commentary: Bo Dallas)
Result: Xavier Woods pins Curtis Axel with a rollup (holding the tights)
Time: 10:12 (1 break)
Very good match. Both teams were really on their game. Woods took a beating early on, but it helped make him mad and aggressive which you don’t always see. Bo Dallas’ commentary was also fantastic and really added to the match. He should do that more often.
This was a good show with some really fun and good matches. I especially liked the main event and the talking segment leading up to it. It was a great little story.
