Great match. I liked this as a very fun change of pace. The match was allowed to happen uninterrupted for the entirety of the show. There were two segments where they had a picture-in-picture situation going on (one was to show Kendrick challenging Gallagher to a match, and the other was Lucha House Party complaining about Daivari), but neither of those moments distracted from the match. Various guys were highlighted throughout the match, though ultimately is felt like they were focused on Carrillo, Garza, and Locan the most. Scott had some good moments as well. This was a fun and memorable match, though who knows what developments will come out of it.
This was fun. They can’t do stuff like this every week, but it’s great when it does happen.
Match of the Night
There was only one match, so that was the best.
