Mickie James vs Dana Brooke w/ Titus O’Neil, Apollo Crews
(referee: Ryan Tran)
Result: Dana Brooke wins via pinfall with a jackknife cover
This was okay. It felt a little slow until Mickie started to pick things up late in the match. The finish was kind of a surprise, but it wasn’t super well done. It was very simple and seemed odd. It felt like the camera angle chosen was hiding something, like a shoulder being up. Maybe not, but it still felt somewhat off.

Akira Tozawa vs Tony Nese
(referee: Drake Wuertz)
Result: Akira Tozawa wins via pinfall after a diving senton
Time: 5:42 (1 break)
Good match. Both guys looked good and I liked the finish. This was neither man’s best match, but it’s worth watching.

Match of the Night
Tozawa vs Nese
Good, but not great. Easily the better of tonight’s two matches though.
