  • Mike Smith

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for joining us.

    What match is everybody most excited for?

  • Mike Smith

    Production value looks pretty high.

  • Mike Smith

    Very excited for Bennett and ACH. Love ACH.

  • Mike Smith

    Awesome when Maria randomly jumps on commentary when Bennett is in control of his match.

  • Mike Smith

    Bennett badly needed this win heading into his match next week

  • Mike Smith

    Would really love to see Elgin have a good match here.

  • Mike Smith

    Good enough. Shorter than you usually get from Elgin, but that’s okay for the second match of a loaded show

  • Mike Smith

    I’m a huge Briscoes fan, so that’s who I’m rooting for in this match, but all these teams are good

  • Mike Smith

    Really fun 3-Way Tag Team Match.

  • Mike Smith

    Roderick Strong and Cedric Alexander are next. Build to this has been wonderful.

  • Mike Smith

    Good match, and post-match beatdown. The Decade don’t appear to be done with Cedric Alexander

  • Mike Smith

    Forever Hooligans, Time Splitters and Young Bucks are next. This should be all kinds of awesome

  • Mike Smith

    That RD Evans segment was pretty excellent

  • Mike Smith

    Highly anticipating this one, especially Jushin Liger

  • Mike Smith

    This is another match I expect to be excellent. I think Lethal will retain, but Silas and Taven will put on a show

    • Mike Smith

      That match was really good. Lethal retaining was good, and the finish was cool.

  • Mike Smith

    Expecting the crowd to be into Okada, Gedo and Karl Anderson, but Styles should be super over

    • Mike Smith

      That was another really good match, this show has been expectedly awesome.

  • Mike Smith

    The crowd’s really into the beginning of this match. Cole-Steen should be the best on a card of great matches.

  • Mike Smith

    Cole-Steen is excellent so far, and the crowd is just as good
