Show/Hide Results

Result: Drew Gulak wins via submission with the Gu-Lock
Time: 8:12

Match Thoughts
Good match. Gulak tried to ground Metalik, but a lot of this match featured Metalik flying around the ring. Metalik even broke out some new variations on his dives and rope-walking. I liked it.


Nobody trains harder than Buddy Murphy.

Match Thoughts


Ring Area
In the ring, Dasha Fuentes asks TJP about his comments on social media about wanting to move to SmackDown. TJP says he carried the cruiserweight division on his back, but he is not getting the type of competition he deserves.

Earlier today, Vic Joseph sat down with Cedric Alexander. Cedric says that the pressure of being champ isn’t getting to him. He feels no pressure heading into his title defense against Buddy Murphy last week. He also reminds Vic that he had to cut weight like Buddy just to make it into the cruiserweight division, so he isn’t as different from his challenger as people are claiming.

Dasha Fuentes asks Tozawa how he feels about the next match. Tozawa says Itami doesn’t respect him. If Itami didn’t like Tozawa as a partner, he really won’t like him as an opponent.


Match 3
Hideo Itami vs Akira Tozawa
(referee: Jason Ayers)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Hideo Itami wins via pinfall after a single knee facebreaker
Time: 15:18

Match Thoughts
Very good match. I think this was a very satisfying payoff to this feud.


Show Impressions
I liked this show. Two good matches and the start of a story that could become more interesting.

Match of the Night
Hideo Itami vs Akira Tozawa
A solid, hard-fought match.
