The card really does nothing for me. I'm sure it'll be a good show, the main event will likely be great, but the rest of it is just every meh to me.
I don't care for Joey Janela. This is an unsanctioned match between a lunatic and an idiot. Will be interesting to see how far AEW let's them go, but considering his past and who he's wrestling you have to assume this will be Moxley's return to garbage wrestling (or hardcore, deathmatch nonsense).
Daniels/CIMA will be good.
It's just hard to care about any of these matches considering there's no platform to build matches.
Hopefully the joshi's don't lose to the dude, but they probably will.
The pre-show was crap, just like last time. I dig Leva Bates though, so that's a plus.
Enjoyed the show though; happy Riho won and put a sad wrestling face on Yuka. Six-man tag was fantastic to watch, but as usual had too many contrived highspots. Is it so hard to tell stories in wrestling by having the wrestlers do things that don't seem choreographed or require blatant help to pull off? Or for moves to seemingly have some impact?
Didn't care for the show closer. Never been a fan of garbage wrestling, especially when there's no build to it.
Riho and Yuka Sakazaki, the Japanese women. The dude is Nyla Rose, the trans wrestler.
Didn't realize that was the trans wrestler. Knew they signed one, I just assumed that was Sonny Kiss. Though now it makes even more sense that Nyla is so much better than Nia Jax.
Also enjoyed the event. Only things I hated were the Nakazawa/Jebailey "match" and the fact that the Best Friends won because Chuck Taylor sucks, but at least everyone else in that match was decent...even the boot leg Street Profits.
Also Riot, if you keep this up, my go to comment during moments like the 6-man or Janela/Moxley will go from "Somewhere in Louisville, Kentucky, Jim Cornette's hed is exploding" to "Somewhere in Auburn, Alabama, Mr. Riot's head is exploding."
