Hager looked good here and like a credible threat against Danielson which is good and bad. Hager doesn’t wrestle much so he isn’t a threat to the roster but his submission / MMA style worked well here. A lot of counters and neither guy could hold a submission for too long.
3.5 / 5
A pretty solid match. Storm is likely taking the belt so makes sense her team won, weird though to see Britt take the pin.
2.5 / 5
A short squash. Vic Capri and Silas Young are both more known midwest indy guys. Silas didn’t even tag in.
.5 / 5
A fun spot fest that just never fully hit for me. Mainly just a prelude for the ladder match at All Out. Yuta winning with a quick roll up almost was a difference finish. As always Fenix shines most in matches like this.
2.75 / 5
A nonstop action spot fest as expected. Rules weren’t followed which you don’t expect in an AEW tag match like this but it was great. Even looking past a lot of no selling here all 6 guys should be commended for this. You know Omega was winning and Will wasn’t taking the pin. This was just a great match though with the old guard from NJPW against the new one.
4.5 / 5
