This past Sunday, Tony Nese defeated Ariya Daivari and successfully defended the Cruiserweight Title.
“Hail to the Crown” by CFO$ featuring From Ashes to New
Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick shake hands prior to their match against each other in tonight’s main event.
The Singh Brothers head to the ring for a match. They say it’s Bollywood time, and it’s definitely not lucha time. Why? Because Lars Sullivan destroyed the “three amigos” at Money in the Bank and on RAW. Since the Lucha House Party won’t make it to this match, the Singhs tell the referee to declare them the winners by forfeit.
Drake Maverick comes out to the stage. Maverick says the Singhs are correct that Lucha House Party will not compete tonight. However, the Singhs still have a match.
The Singh Brothers vs Gentleman Jack Gallagher & Humberto Carrillo
(referee: DA Brewer)
Result: Humberto Carrillo pins Samir Singh after the Aztec Press
Good match. I’d like to see the Singh brothers get some good wins here and there, but I do like the team of Carrillo and Gallagher. This match was a good introduction for Carrillo and Gallagher being completely on the same page. It was fun.
Mike Kanellis is frustrated that Drake Maverick still can’t see his greatness. Maria says that after tonight, Maverick will not be able to deny the greatness of her husband.
Oney Lorcan says he is going to prove that he deserves a title shot after tonight’s main event.
Sarah Schreiber welcomes Ariya Daivari and asks him how he is going to rebound after his loss to Tony Nese. Daivari says Sunday was a fluke, and he is not done with Tony Nese.
Fatal Five Way Match
Akira Tozawa vs Mike Kanellis w/ Maria Kanellis vs The Brian Kendrick vs Oney Lorcan vs Ariya Daivari
(referee: Danilo Anfibio)
Result: Akira Tozawa pins Ariya Daivari with an Oklahoma roll
Very good match. Everyone definitely had their own personality and style in this match, and that showed through in each of their game plans. Kanellis tried to avoid fighting and picks his spots, Lorcan tried hitting people very hard, Daivari was smart and took advantage of the work of others, and Tozawa and Kendrick worked together for as long as they could. All of this combined for a very entertaining match. There were multiple moments where everyone got involved, and those were some of the most fun to watch moments in the match. I also really liked how Tozawa and Kendrick handled fighting each other while still remaining friends.
This was a fun show. It felt like a show about building towards something. Kind of a restart after some of the big matches over the past few weeks. I like the direction it seems they’re heading in.
Match of the Night
Fatal Five Way
The tag match was fun, but the five way was very good. I’d definitely watch it again soon.
