Once this match got going it was really good. Big Bill isn’t booked great in AEW so I didn’t expect him to win this. He did get some moves in and come off looking like a big monster though. Orange getting the comeback worked well for him and he did it in some crafty ways.
3.5 / 5
Komander came off here looking like a lucha star hitting those spots. Should be noted that AR Fox came off looking great too hitting some of the moves with him. Takeshita should have won personally as he’s the main guy here that just screams star power. Hobbs winning is fine but just odd given he just came back from half a year or not even being on tv. It was a fun match though with nonstop action. Had stories going like the JAS / Action and Eddie / Ortiz.
4.25 / 5
A 3 minute match where Avalon got all the offense until the final move where Jericho ended it. It is what it is.
1 / 5
Another quick match here. Hardy got a lot of offense and made it seem like he might win before Hook for the Redrum in for the win.
2.5 / 5
Riho winning here was odd. Storm is still a bigger name here and Riho isn’t used like she was in AEWs first year. The finish here was awful too.
2 / 5
It was an AEW Tag Battle Royal. Some spots were fun and it had its moments but its just not insanely exciting. Orange and Danhausen winning was a bit of a shock though.
2.5 / 5
