Good to see Cole and Masha do a non deathmatch match to remind everyone they can go in ring. This was quick and action packed which is exactly what both do best as slow isn’t their style.
3.5 / 5
This was a really fun fast match here. Leon looked great here even looking hurt during it. Wayne continues to impress in matches like this. Would love to see Leon against other fast spot type guys.
4 / 5
A decent scramble with a better second half. Some good spots here but I just hate the formula of a GCW scramble mostly.
2.5 / 5
Maki Itoh here was a complete joy here. The match itself was okay, nothing particularly great.
2.5 / 5
Tremont bled a ton here. Some really good and insane looking spots here. Pondo hits his usual marks even if he isn’t exactly agile in the slightest. Tremont made sure to make up for it though. Bit of a lackluster finish based on everything that happened though.
3.5 / 5
Kerry Morton playing super heel only to finally get in the ring to quickly get thrown out worked great. Blake being the mega heel at the end though was great. The final 5 minutes or so of the rumble were fantastic. Overall its hard to rate hour + long rumbles as there’s so much dead time throughout. The other major issue is seeing almost half the rumble consist of people who wrestled already.
2.75 / 5
