Match 1
Rich Swann vs Lince Dorado
(referee: Jason Ayers)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Rich Swann wins via pinfall with a spin kick followed by a sunset flip into a jackknife cover
Time: 7:58 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
Good match. It wasn’t quite the caliber of most of the matches from the Cruiserweight Classic, but this was a lot of fun. I think a big difference was that this match didn’t feel like it had so much riding on it, so Swann and Dorado seemed to have more fun with this while the CWC matches were all very competitive. Both guys had a god showing and it was a very even matchup.

** It’s interesting to see that they branded the ring with purple ropes for the match. I’m not sure how I feel about them further separating the cruiserweights from the rest of the roster, but I do like that they kept the pre-match handshake. **


From RAW, Sasha and Bayley team up to take on Charlotte and Dana Brooke.


Match 2
Breezango vs Heath Slater & Rhyno (SmackDown Tag Champs)
(referee: Mike Chioda)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Rhyno pins Tyler Breeze after a gore
Time: 7:54 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
Good match. Breezango, once again, showed some great teamwork. I don’t think they get enough credit for the clever ways they work together in the ring. On the other side of the ring, Slater and Rhyno worked well for how they wrestle: Slater gets beat up and Rhyno saves the day. Very enjoyable.


From RAW, Owens faces Reigns in a steel cage.


Show Impressions
This was a good Main Event. Both matches are worth watching and were given a decent amount of time. The matches had a good mixture of fun and wrestling at the same time. Breezango needs a title push for sure.

Match of the Night
Rich Swann vs Lince Dorado
Both matches were good, but this one was more unique.
