Serpentico w/ Luther vs “The Bad Boy” Joey Janela w/ Sonny Kiss
(referee: Rick Knox)
Result: Joey Janela wins via pinfall after a diving elbow drop
Pretty good match. Janela came out with a lot of aggression after his completely one-sided loss to Chris Jericho on Dynamite. I liked Janela’s fight, but there were moments early in the match where the action seemed awkward. It felt like Serpentico was stalling for time early in the match. He would just walk around the ring when he would usually attack, and there was one point where he set up a top-rope move, changed his mind, but went back and tried it again just a minute or two later. It was odd, and it hurt the first part of the match. The final few minutes were good though, and I liked how Janela looked when the match was finished.
Alex “3” Reynolds & John “4” Silver w/ Preston “10” Vance, Alan “5” Angels vs Private Party
(referee: Bryce Remsburg)
Result: Isaiah Kassidy pins John Silver after Gin & Juice
Great match. Silver and Reynolds continue to impress with their tandem moves and tag team continuity. Dark Order’s aggression and forced Private Party to get serious really quickly, and that made this a very fun and very competitive match. Even though the winners of the match weren’t too difficult to predict, there were still some great near falls from both teams that had me buying the fact that either tam could win.
After Tony Schiavone and Excalibur go over tonight’s matches one more time, Jim Ross joins the commentary table which signals the end of the Buy In and the start of All Out.
This was a pretty good buy in. The interviews were fine, and I was happy to see a lot of people get a chance to speak. As for the matches, the tag match got me excited for the main show, but Janela and Serpentico could have been better even if I did like Janela’s attitude.
Match of the Buy In
Dark Order vs Private Party
I think this was a perfect pre-show match.
