City: Brooklyn, New York, NY

Match 1
Kassius Ohno vs Aiden English
(referee: DA Brewer)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Kassius Ohno wins via pinfall after a ripcord rolling elbow
Time: 5:57

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. English hasn’t wrestled much lately, so I think the biggest intrigue in this match was just waiting for Ohno to hit him really, really hard and end the match. That did happen, though I did enjoy the brief match leading up to that result.


Match 2
Dominik Dijakovic vs Harper
(referee: Drake Wuertz)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Harper wins via pinfall after a lariat
Time: 11:50

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Harper tweeted about making the most of this match in the days leading up to it, and it seemed clear that he felt he had a lot to prove. Harper was fighting to prove he can still compete at a top level, and Dijakovic was fighting to continue to build his name in WWE. What resulted was a very hard fought battle with two men who pushed themselves to make this match memorable. I think it worked. This was a lot of fun to watch.


Match 3
Killian Dain & Alexander Wolfe w/ Eric Young vs Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish
(referee: DA Brewer)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Kyle O’Reilly pins Killian Dain after Total Elimination
Time: 9:09

Match Thoughts
Good match. These two teams know each other well, so it’s no surprise this was an entertaining match.


Ring Area
After the match, Fish and O’Reilly continue to attack Dain. Eric Young enters the ring and takes down both Fish and O’Reilly. Fish and O’Reilly leave, and SAnitY stands together in the middle of the ring.


Match 4
Roderick Strong vs Tyler Breeze
(referee: Tom Castor)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Tyler Breeze wins via pinfall after the Unprettier
Time: 13:11

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Strong didn’t take Breeze seriously at first, but Breeze really seemed to want to win this match. Breeze brought a good fight to Strong, but Strong still managed to dominate a good portion of the match. Breeze showed resiliency though, and the last few minutes of this match got very interesting.


Show Impressions
I like shows like this. It was just wrestling with no story lines. Plus, having some wrestlers who haven’t been doing much compete tonight made the matches actually feel like they meant something.

Match of the Night
Dominik Dijakovic vs Harper
The main event was good, but I’m most likely to go back and watch Harper vs Dijakovic again. This was the most fun for me tonight.
