Match #1: Christian Cage def. Angelico

The following is courtesy of allelitewrestling.com:

Christian Cage took Angelico to the mat with a headlock takedown. Angelico, so silky smooth with his catch-as-catch-can techniques, grappled with Christian and then stomped on Christian’s left arm. He whipped Christian shoulder and arm first into the turnbuckle. Angelico used a hybrid wrestling/MMA arm breaker but Christian finally made it to the ropes to cause ref Aubrey Edwards to break the hold. Christian Cage countered Angelico with an inverted DDT off the top turnbuckle. The momentum began to swing as Christian connected with a missile dropkick for a near fall on Angelico. Christian Cage was right on the money with a diving headbutt to his opponent! Angelico surprised Christian Cage with a kick and then a jackknife cover for a two-count. There was a collision in the middle of the ring, dazing both wrestlers. Angelico charged in but Christian rocked him with a pendulum kick. Christian Cage hit the Kill Switch and pinned Angelico! Jack Evans jumped into the ring and tried to blindside Christian Cage, but Christian dispatched of Evans. Matt Hardy, like a snake in the grass, slithered into the ring and attacked Christian Cage with the Twist of Fate! Jungle Boy ran down to the aid of Christian Cage!

The Verdict: 7 out of 10 – Another excellent match from Christian and one that had a great performance from Angelico as wellico. Boom! That was dynamite…made of s–t. Everything here was smooth and easy. I had no issues following what they were doing or believing in what they were showing. This felt like a competitive contest between two people who wanted to win. Angelico sure does work as a submission wrestler. I’m so used to his aerial offense that this shift to submission moves is throwing me off a bit. That being said, I am enjoying that shift very much. Christian is a breath of fresh air here. There are so many stunts done on Dynamite that a good old-fashioned wrestling match just has an appeal here that it might not normally have. I hope this isn’t the last match these guys have together. Also, I can’t believe it’s not butter!

Match #2: PAC/Penta El Zero Miedo/Eddie Kingston def. The Young Bucks/Brandon Cutler

The following is courtesy of allelitewrestling.com:

PAC walloped Matt Jackson with a forearm at the start of the match. Matt forced Brandon to tag in. PAC rammed Brandon with a massive back elbow! Kingston wanted to tag in, but PAC bypassed him and tagged in Penta El Zero Miedo. Penta El Zero Miedo chopped Cutler’s chest and then tagged in Eddie Kingston. “The Mad King” bludgeoned and battered the midsection of Brandon Cutler. Kingston used a delayed vertical suplex for a near fall on The Bucks’ stooge, Brandon Cutler. PAC tagged in and manhandled Brandon Cutler, throwing him into The Buck’s corner. PAC fired off on both Bucks until Nick Jackson used a dirty hold, tripping up PAC. PAC leveled Cutler with a spin kick and tagged in Kingston. Eddie caught Nick Jackson and took him down with an exploder suplex! Kingston tagged in Penta El Zero Miedo and spiked Matt Jackson with a Canadian Destroyer! Penta El Zero Miedo used a backstabber on Nick Jackson on the ring apron! PAC crashed down on Matt Jackson with the 450 splash and then locked on the Brutalizer! Nick Jackson finally forced PAC to relinquish the hold. PAC seemed reluctant to trust Kingston and this hesitation almost cost him. Kingston came in and wiped-out Cutler with a spinning backfist for the pin! The Bucks, with the help of The Good Brothers, assaulted PAC and Kingston after the match! “The Elite Hunter” Frankie Kazarian ran down and helped clear the ring of The Elite!

The Verdict: 6 out of 10 – There’s nothing bad in here at all, but there’s nothing great either. Bumps were taken and dives were bombed, but nothing of note really happened when all was said and done. PAC had a fine showing here. That’s really all there is to this match.

Match #3: Miro def. Evil Uno – TNT Title Match

The following is courtesy of allelitewrestling.com:

Miro shoved Evil Uno into the corner. Miro grappled Evil Uno to the mat. Miro landed serious body shots on Uno. Miro lunged at Evil Uno, but Evil Uno pulled down the rope, forcing Miro to tumble to the outside. Evil Uno took Miro off his feet with a senton off the apron! Miro pulled Evil Uno off the turnbuckle and suplexed him with brute force! Miro continued the onslaught with suplexes and stiff kicks to Evil Uno. Stu Grayson and Alan Angels joined Evil Uno down by the ringside area to motivate and support Uno. Miro clotheslined Grayson over the barricade. Miro tore off the top turnbuckle pad, but Evil Uno used the opportunity to connect with a jawbreaker on Miro! Uno charged into the corner with two clotheslines and then a big Brodie Lee-esque boot to Miro! Evil Uno connected with a senton atomico, but Miro kicked out at the one-count. The Dark Order, including -1, cheered on Evil Uno from the ramp! Evil Uno, with a tribute to Mr. Brodie Lee, smashed Miro with a discus lariat! Miro barely budged and then forced Evil Uno to tap out after applying the Game Over submission!

The Verdict: 7 out of 10 – Uno did well here with Miro. These guys worked well together. Miro has been rebooted into the killer he should have been from the start. Uno had the baby-face fire you’d hope for from a challenger. This was certainly a brawl in many respects, but the wrestling never got too far away from something believable. What a titty-blast this was. I hope Uno gets another shot at the gold soon enough.

Match #4: Lance Archer def. Chandler Hopkins

The following is courtesy of allelitewrestling.com:

Archer charged at Chandler and smashed him with a chokeslam! Archer quickly won the match with the Blackhole Slam!

The Verdict: 1 out of 10 – Squash matches…AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Match #5: Nyla Rose def. Leyla Hirsch

The following is courtesy of allelitewrestling.com:

Nyla Rose blindsided Leyla Hirsch. Leyla went for a crossarm breaker, but Nyla saved herself in the ropes. Nyla was knocked to the outside after a big shotgun dropkick from Leyla. Nyla intercepted a tope suicida from Leyla! “The Native Beast” rammed Leyla into the edge of the ring. Back in the ring, Leyla tossed Nyla across the ring with a release German suplex! Leyla got a near fall after a moonsault press! Leyla locked in an armbar, but Nyla picked her off the mat and slammed her back down. Nyla muscled up Leyla and hung her up to dry on the top rope. Leyla climbed up to the top turnbuckle, but Nyla smashed her with an avalanche Beast Bomb, scoring the victory!

The Verdict: 6 out of 10 – There’s some great stuff from Leyla here. Hi. I’m Robert Rodriguez and welcome to the DVD commentary for El Mariachi. Stone Cold! Stone Cold! Nyla makes for a great beast. Leyla and Nyla have a certain chemistry together that is worth returning to soon. Maybe, next time, Leyla will win.

Match #6: (Main Event) Adam Page & 10 def. Brian Cage & Powerhouse Hobbs

The following is courtesy of allelitewrestling.com:

“Hangman” Page got a two-count after a standing moonsault press on “The Machine” Brian Cage. “The Machine” answered back with forearms. 10 got the blind tag and nailed Cage with heavy shots and then a running pump kick! Hobbs tagged in and with the help of Cage, they powerbombed Pres10 Vance. Hobbs got blasted with a pump kick from Pres10 and then “Hangman” tagged in. Page tried for a clothesline, but Hobbs didn’t blink. Page took down Hobbs after a moonsault press from the top rope! Hobbs wiped out Page after a massive crossbody! The heavy-handed “Hangman” walloped Hobbs with a forearm and then tagged in Pres10! Pres10 smashed Hobbs into the mat with a spinebuster! Cage tagged in and got a near fall after a German suplex! Hook distracted the referee and Ricky Starks tossed the FTW Belt at Cage, but Brian Cage didn’t want it. Starks questioned Cage, and Cage stormed after Starks to the backstage area! Pres10 went from the rip cord into the stunner! “Hangman” followed up with the Buckshot Lariat, and this allowed Pres10 Vance to pin Hobbs and grab the victory for the Dark Order!

The Verdict: 6 out of 10 – Meat and potatoes. I can eat a heapin’ helpin’ of meat and potatoes, but when I see a slab of steak on the grill, I’d rather have that any damn day of the week. Page and Cage would’ve been a hell of a main event, but we instead got a lesser match in the tag bout. Hobbs is getting better, but he is still a little green around the gills for a fish out of water. 10 Bo Dereked its way around the ring like a twirly slut…that damn fly. I got you now you bastard. Ow! My nuts! I cracked my nuts! Damn it! Anyway, Page and Cage carried this son of a gun through the lulls and landed on their feet at the end of the jump.

Final Verdict: 6/10

There’s some solid wrestling here, the matches felt like they were taking a back seat to the promos, of which there seemed to be a million of them. MJF talked and Chris Jericho talked (and destroyed The Pinnacle’s limo) and Jade Cargill talked and Cody Rhodes talked (and introduced Brock Anderson ahead of his debut match next week) and QT Marshall talked and Kenny Omega talked and Jungle Boy…hit Omega. At least that happened. More wrestling…less talking. Okay. I’ll see you next time.
