Show/Hide Match Previews


Match 1
Lee Johnson vs QT Marshall
(referee: Paul Turner)

Show/Hide Results

Result: QT Marshall wins via pinfall after a swanton bomb
Time: 4:05

Match Thoughts
Good match. Cody was saying on commentary that Lee is a student of Marshall, and that made sense watching the match. Lee got in some good offense, but Marshall ended up looking better in the end.


Match 2
Ryan Pyles vs Wardlow w/ MJF
(referee: Aubrey Edwards)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Wardlow wins via pinfall after the F-10
Time: 0:29

Match Thoughts
A one-move quash. Wardlow’s finisher has a dumb name.


Match 3
Tony Donati vs “Superbad” Kip Sabian w/ Penelope Ford
(referee: Aubrey Edwards)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Kip Sabian wins via submission with a ground octopus hold
Time: 6:03

Match Thoughts
Good match. Sabian handled things pretty easily tonight, so this was a fine showcase for him.


Show Impressions
This was an okay show. All squashes, pretty much. Nothing you’d need to go out of your way to see, but it was fine. It was also quite short at under 20 minutes total for all three matches.

Match of the Night
Kip Sabian vs Tony Donati
This and the opener were both about equal for me. I thought the Wardlow/MJF thing was dumb. It was just a way to bring Wardlow’s won/loss record up to 50%.
