Multiverse United 2 – For Whom The Bell Tolls

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

Aug. 20th, 2023


Scramble Match
Chris Sabin vs. Frankie Kazarian vs. BUSHI vs. Rich Swann vs. El Desperado vs. YOH vs. MAO vs. Kevin Knight

This was a large quick 8 man scramble. A lot of spots and non stop action but nothing too deep. 

3.5 / 5

Tag Team Match
Eddie Edwards & Moose vs. TMDK (Shane Haste & Zack Sabre Jr.)

Another fun match with a random team against an established one. Nothing too over the top but just some good action. 

3.5 / 5

NJPW STRONG Women’s Title Four Way Match
Giulia (c) vs. Deonna Purrazzo vs. Gisele Shaw vs. Momo Kohgo

A good title match that showcased everyone and might lead to more good matches down the line. Giulia is great and Shaw looked just as good here while Deonna is always great in ring. 

3.5 / 5

South Philly Street Fight
Sami Callihan vs. DOUKI

A hardcore match which is right up Callihans alley. This just wasn’t good though and Douki here didn’t stand out. It was the same hardcore brawl we’ve seen a million times. 

1.5 / 5

Tag Team Match
Catch 22 (Francesco Akira & TJP) vs. TMDK (Kosei Fujita & Robbie Eagles)

A standard fast paced match that was more of a showcase for the NJPW team. Perfectly fine but nothing more. 

2.5 / 5

12 Man Tag Team Match
BULLET CLUB (Ace Austin, Alex Coughlin, Chris Bey, Clark Connors, David Finlay & KENTA) vs. Guerrillas Of Destiny (El Phantasmo, Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa), Josh Alexander, PCO & The DKC

Another massive man match. More structured but just spot after spot. 

3 / 5

Tag Team Match
Hiromu Takahashi & Mike Bailey vs. Lio Rush & Trey Miguel

Another match that was all action. This could set up another match too down the line. 

3.5 / 5

Impact World Title Match
Alex Shelley (c) vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi

A title match that felt important. Neither man is in their prime but this was still a solid match overall. 

3 / 5
