Piper Niven VS Zelina Vega!

The Scottish Viper represents NXT UK while La Muneca represents both SmackDown and the WWE main roster! But who will represent with a victory?

The bell rings and Piper stands face to face with Zelina. And it’s clear who has the height advantage. But Zelina has a bigger attitude as she pushes Piper. Piper shoves back and knocks Zelina off her feet! Zelina seems to grin as she starts throwing forearms. Zelina runs, but Piper catches her and scoops. But Zelina slips out to kick away.

Piper bumps Zelina against buckles then throws her off.

Zelina runs away but Piper rallies with double ax handles. Piper scoops Zelina to slam her down! Then she drops the big senton! And the basement crossbody!

Piper scoops for the Michinoku Driver! Cover, Piper wins!

Winner: Piper Niven, by pinfall

The Scottish Viper strikes and is victorious! Will this help Piper climb the NXT UK ranks to challenge the champion? But with that title on the line later on, who will that NXT UK Women’s Champion even be?

 

Io Shirai VS Sonya Deville!

The Genius of the Sky represents NXT while Fire & Desire’s Gladiator Gal represents SmackDown and the WWE main roster! Shirai wants after Shayna and the NXT Women’s Championship while Sonya wants after the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Who will use this win to take a step closer to gold?

The bell rings and fans rally up already. The two tie up and Sonya powers Shirai to ropes. Sonya grinds her forearm on Shirai’s face then pushes her around. Shirai comes back and fans are strongly on her side. Sonya rushes in to waistlock but Shirai drop toeholds Sonya down. Shirai gets up and shrugs at Sonya. Sonya gets up with a scowl and gives Shirai a swift kick on the leg. Shirai throws forearms but Sonya throws fast hands! Sonya whips but Shirai ducks and handsprings! Sonya gets clear of that but not the dropkick! Fans fire up with Shirai as she blocks Sonya’s punch to double CHOP! Shirai CHOPS Sonya to a corner then whips her corner to corner. Sonya reverses but Shirai hops up fast. Shirai boots but Sonya blocks to yank Shirai down! Cover, TWO!

Shirai scrambles to a corner but Sonya puts her hair up, time to square up! Sonya kicks away on Shirai then clubs her down. Cover, TWO! Sonya grows frustrated while fans rally up. Sonya reels Shirai into a body scissors and pulls Shirai’s hair. The ref counts and Sonya lets the hair go but goes for a chinlock. Sonya slaps and clubs away on Shirai then turns to lean more weight on her. Shirai sits up but Sonya grabs the arm for a keylock. Shirai pries her arm free but Sonya puts another chinlock on. Fans rally and Shirai manages to make it a cover. ONE and Sonya lets Shirai go, to then roundhouse Shirai down! Sonya stands on Shirai for a cocky cover, TWO! Sonya puts Shirai on the ropes to grind the ribs but she throws Shirai back down at the ref’s count.

Fans sing for Shirai but Sonya mocks them before putting Shirai in the body scissors again. Shirai endures but Sonya pulls her hair again. Sonya lets go to then SLAP Shirai on the back. Sonya squeezes tighter but Shirari gets a ropebreak. The ref counts and Sonya lets go at 4, but then drags her over to drop an elbow, and then another. Cover, TWO! Shirai crawls but Sonya brings her up. Shirai throws hands but Sonya throws kicks and knees. Sonya drags Shirai up and snapmares her hard, to then hit the sliding wizard! Cover, TWO! Shirai survives and Sonya grows frustrated. Fans rally and duel as Shirai kicks Sonya away. Sonya hammers away then drags Shirai up. Sonya wraps Shirai in a chinlock but Shirai endures.

Fans rally up and Shirai fights. Sonya becomes a backpack with that sleeper, but Shirai powers up to back Sonya into buckles. Shirai breaks free after a few more, then ducks the running enziguri! Shirai roars and rallies and Sonya flounders. Sonya ends up on the ropes, Tiger Feint! Shirai climbs and leaps, missile dropkick! Cover, TWO! Sonya survives and Shirai grows frustrated. Shirai CHOPS Sonya on the leg then drags her up in a waistlock. Sonya resists and elbows out. Sonya kicks but Shirai dodges, only to get an enziguri! Cover, TWO! Sonya drags Shirai up and fires off more kicks and knees. Shirai goes Matrix to school girl, TWO, but she hits Sonya with a SHOTEI!

Shirai uses a spinebuster into the drop zone, and then climbs up top. ASAI MOONSAULT, but Sonya gets clear! Shirai rolls through but Sonya SPEARS!! Sonya high stacks, Sonya wins!!

Winner: Sonya Deville, by pinfall

The Jersey Devil defeats the Genius of the Sky! Maybe it’s an upset, maybe it’s the different between main roster and NXT or maybe it’s the difference of MMA and pro-wrestling. But whatever it was, Sonya still won. Will this lead Sonya to a title match on SmackDown? Can Shirai rebound and prove she’s worthy of a title match in her own right?

 

NXT UK Women’s Championship Triple Threat: Toni Storm VS Bianca Belair VS Nikki Cross!

The Lightning from Down Under obviously represents NXT UK as she holds the gold. But she’s going up against both NXT’s EST and WWE SmackDown’s Loony Lass. Will it still be #ToniTime after Worlds Collide? Or will someone else take the title with them to their brand?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we begin this crazy crossover main event!

Nikki chooses to go after Bianca and Toni by herself! She dropkicks Bianca then headbutts Toni. Nikki whips Toni but Toni reverses and sends Nikki at Bianca. Bianca catches Nikki and throws her with a Fall Away Slam! Bianca and Toni are now alone and the fans really like this match-up. Toni offers a handshake and Bianca says “kiss this.” Toni laughs it off and they tie up. Bianca gets the wristlock but Toni spins and bends and handsprings to slap and kick Bianca. Toni runs and sees Bianca drop down, so she redirects herself to dropkick Bianca down! Cover, but Nikki runs in so Toni bails to get clear. Nikki shoves Toni while Bianca rolls out of the ring.

Nikki double chops Toni then runs back in. Toni puts Nikki on the apron. Nikki shoulders and kicks her way back in, but Bianca yanks her down hard. Nikki goes after Bianca for that and trips HER up! Then she traps Bianca in the apron to club away! Finlay would be proud. Toni runs in but Nikki intercepts with a haymaker. Now Nikki has two for one as she puts Toni in the apron! Nikki clubs away then fires up. Toni and Bianca flop out of the skirt and Nikki puts them both back in! Nikki climbs and leaps! Bianca gets clear but the crossbody cover on Toni! BIanca breaks it just in time! She chicken wings Nikki to slam her onto Toni! But wait that’s a cover! Bianca shoves Nikki off Toni in time to then cover Toni herself. TWO, but Bianca keeps her cool.

Nikki rolls out while fans rally for Toni. Bianca clubs Toni and puts her in a corner for a mudhole stomp. Bianca reels Toni out for a snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Toni survives but Bianca keeps cool. Bianca sits Toni up and slaps her around. She dares Toni to fight so Toni fights. Bianca clubs Toni but Nikki returns to hop on! Nikki has a sleeper but Bianca drops back for a backpack senton! All three women are down but the fans rally up. Bianca and Nikki get to opposite corners, so Toni starts a hip attack train! Toni goes back and forth again and again for four! Toni underhooks Nikki but Nikki reverses. Bianca runs and double SPEARS! The three women are down again and fans rally back up.

Bianca covers Nikki, TWO! Bianca covers Toni, TWO! She goes back to Nikki and drags her up. She torture racks, KoD! Cover, but Toni breaks it! Toni and Bianca go after each other as fans duel. They throw forearms back and forth but Toni gets the edge. Bianca comes back for more then shoves to ROCK Toni! Toni staggers to a corner and Bianca runs in, but Toni sends her into the post! Toni rolls Bianca, TWO! HEADBUTT! Nikki cradles Toni, TWO!! Nikki almost caught Toni! Toni scoops but Nikki slips out for an inverted DDT, TWO!! Nikki grows frustrated as she’s so close yet so far from the title. She fires up and climbs up top, but Bianca goes up. Nikki kicks Bianca all the way down, then leaps at Toni! Toni gets clear and Nikki flops! Toni drags Nikki up, double underhooks, Storm Zero! Cover, Toni wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall; still NXT UK Women’s Champion

That match was as quick as lightning, but it is the Lightning from Down Under that strikes! Toni Time continues, but who will be next to challenge her for that title?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A good third part to the Worlds Collide event, but boy, it sure ended up being more like NXT, NXT UK & SmackDown collides. The Shake-Up would have put Zelina on Raw but things changed and she’s back on SmackDown. Of course, she was on SmackDown before so it was going to be that way anyway. Zelina did well against Piper, and while I didn’t want to make it about size, it came down to size. But at the same time, Piper wins to keep herself strong in the NXT UK Division, since Zelina isn’t really doing much on the main roster. Candice VS KLR was great, especially as an opener. Both women are potential contenders on their brands, so it was good for Candice to get this win here just so the fans can see she’s still good enough.

Shirai VS Sonya was great, but I was very surprised to see Sonya won! I can’t be sure why, though Worlds Collide doesn’t really impact much. I suppose Sonya can’t keep losing or else she won’t seem strong enough for SmackDown. Mia Yim establishes on commentary that she strongly dislikes MMA-turned-wrestler types like Sonya, which of course includes Shayna, Jessamyn and Marina of the MMA Horsewomen, so that’s good character development for her. And then the Triple Threat main event was short but fast and really good. But given it was short and this is Worlds Collide where Toni was against two superstars from other brands, naturally Toni would retain the NXT UK Women’s Championship to bring it back to NXT UK.

My Score: 8/10

Andrew’s Impact Wrestling Hard to Kill Results & Match Ratings: 1.16.21

Three title matches, the return of Decay, Barbed Wire Massacre and a main event with Kenny Omega. Impact Wrestling’s Hard to Kill definitely sounds like it’s got a little bit of everything. Check out how it went!

Published

on

So the news that made many people cry a few days ago, was that Alex Shelley would be out of the main event. He went out of his way to film a response/promo/apology so fans knew it was something non-pandemic related, so that was an effort that wasn’t necessary, though appreciated.

Aside from losing it’s “Dream Match” luster, we get Moose as a replacement, which could really work for the cold calculated persona he’s taken on after his EC3 encounter. We also get to crown Knockouts Tag Team champions for the first time in seven and a half years. Let’s also not forget, this could end up being Taya’s swan song from Impact, so we should expect a good match but no Wera Loca victory.

Let’s see if we get any surprises!

Ratings:

  • Decay (Rosemary & Crazzy Steve) vs Tenille Dashwood & Kaleb: Steve wins via King Kill 33 @8:55 – * ½
  • Old School Rules Match: Violent by Design (Joe Doering, Eric Young & Deaner) vs Tommy Dreamer, Rhino & Cousin Jake: EY wins via Piledriver @9:55 – ** ½
  • Knockouts Tag Team Title Finals: Fire & Flava (Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz) vs Nevaeh & Havok: Kiera wins via Face the Music @8:40 – ***TITLE CHANGE!!
  • Ace Austin w/Madman Fulton vs Matt Cardona: Cardona wins via DQ @2:30 – N/A
  • X Division Championship: Manik (c) vs Rohit Raju vs Chris Bey: Manik retains via Ole Cradle @13:50 – *** ½
  • Knockouts Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) w/Kimber Lee & Susan vs Taya Valkyrie w/ Decay: Deonna retains via Venus de Milo @11:40 – *** ¼
  • Ethan Page vs The Karate Man: Karate Man WINS…Fatality – 200 Stars
  • Barbed Wire Massacre: Sami Callihan vs Eddie Edwards: Eddie wins via Diehard Flowsion @18:50 – *** ¾
  • Moose, Rich Swann &Chris Sabin vs Kenny Omega, Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows: Kenny Omega wins via One Winged Angel @20:30 – ****

 

Results:

During the last few moments of the Countdown, Madison Rayne officially retired from wrestling and from Impact Wrestling. Not sure how long she’ll stay a house wife, but good for her. She did great to actually prove to people she was a decent wrestler since her run during the WOH tournament, she was a fun commentator, so good for her.

Decay (Rosemary & Crazzy Steve) vs Tenille Dashwood & Kaleb

The weird thing about this match was the dynamic between who was involved and what went on.  Crazzy Steve showed a very high work rate in this match, with his strikes and moves looking fantastic. But Rosemary got exposed a bit on still being less than 100% with the knee and generally sloppy on a lot of spots.

Kaleb and Tenille definitely tried to add comedy and their quirky personalities, but the fact that we saw a lot of sloppiness, Steve working his ass off and just comedy spots or gimmick spots too often; this was a giant mess of a match. It also didn’t help that D’lo and Striker are still getting used to each other, so the announcing was distractingly bad.

It can only get better from here!

Old School Rules Match: Violent by Design (Joe Doering, Eric Young & Deaner) vs Tommy Dreamer, Rhino & Cousin Jake

This starts the same way every Tommy Dreamer match starts, with a brawl and weapon use.  This wasn’t a terrible match, but it’s really not anything worth going deeply in to. EY did the flair corner to top rope spot, which ended with Dreamer hitting him with a cookie sheet. We had a Tower spot in the corner, with Joe Powerbombing a Suplex, and it landed right into Dreamer’s face.

Doering got to look like a beast when the entire team took the chairs to him, and he still fought back, ending up in control. Dreamer introduced tacks, then we saw the Signature/Finisher spam which ends with EY breaking up the pinfall and hitting Cousin Jake with the Piledriver.

Again, decent enough, but nothing really special.

Knockouts Tag Team Title Finals: Fire & Flava (Kiera Hogan & Tasha Steelz) vs Nevaeh & Havok

Oh, Brian Hebner is back for this match. Slightly surprising.

Kiera and Tasha try to start fast, but the bigger women over power the smaller team and throw them around a little bit. Havok beats up on both of them, Neavaeh comes in to keep up the momentum, but eventually Tasha and Kiera start making a comeback. We see Fire and Flava go for a lot of quick spots, fast tags and trying to spin around the larger women, but they just get taken for a ride more often than not.

It’s not until Kiera hits a High Round Kick, followed by Tasha with the Springboard Neckbreaker actually takes Havok off her feet. Nevaeh tries to make a save and get things back on track, but Tasha picks her leg, Havok gets wiped out after a great Super Kick from Kiera, Tasha and Kiera use some tandem attacks on Nevaeh, then Tasha slows down Havok as Kiera hits Face the Music and we have new Knockouts Tag Team Champions!

Ace Austin comes out to declare himself into the X Division Triple Threat to make it a 4 way! D’Amore comes out, says he can have a match, just not the title match. Matt Cardona comes out.

Ace Austin w/Madman Fulton vs Matt Cardona

Ace tries to go at Cardona before the ring jacket is off, but Cardona absorbs some offense and then fires back a bit. Fulton gets in the way quite often during this match, so the finish is a little telegraphed. But right as Cardona starts building momentum; Fulton slides in to cause the DQ.

Decent enough way to protect Ace and give Cardona quick win.

X Division Championship: Manik (c) vs Rohit Raju vs Chris Bey

Rohit went after Manik to try and prove his point that it’s TJP. Bey seemed dead set on finding a way to win, and as we expected in an X Division match; there were a lot of spots, but they all made sense. Rohit does manage to take off the mask, but TJP painted his face under the mask, so it still throws off Rohit. TJP strings together a few moves, goes for the Mamba Splash, but gets caught by Bey with a Cutter. Bey then hits a Double Art of Finesse, but his brief moment of not knowing who to pin, caused the pinfall breakup.

Rohit almost won the title back after his call back to hitting his Tiger Knee after a Mamba Splash but Bey kicked out. Haymakers get thrown, Rohit hits the Dragon Stomp on Bey, and looks to finish things, but TJP slides in for the style of Cradle he’s used a bit lately, and retains his title after a fun, hard fought match.

Knockouts Championship: Deonna Purrazzo (c) w/Kimber Lee & Susan vs Taya Valkyrie w/ Decay

Early on all of the seconds get kicked out, with the beauty of the situation being that Susan pulls out her phone and says she’s filming the whole thing. So Susan, really may be a middle aged transformation of Su Yung. Susan might as well be named Karen.

As we focus on the actual match, Deonna starts slowly picking apart Taya. Going after her left arm, then her left knee and just trying to apply submission and weaken different limbs. Taya was able to push back and have her own submission attempt moment. Taya went for an STF, but the submission game isn’t her wheelhouse.

Deonna was able to pick her apart, counter a pinfall attempt and keep Taya grounded long enough to work in some holds. The normal Fujiwara didn’t get her submit, so Venus de Milo followed up and Taya verbally submitted.

Ethan Page vs The Karate Man

Since this is cinematic or at least green screen, I won’t rate this as a real match. But it was amazingly entertaining. Dragon Ball Z references, Karate Kid, and Mortal Kombat references, it was just amazing.

Barbed Wire Massacre: Sami Callihan vs Eddie Edwards

Interesting pacing to get across the familiarity, twisted respect and love for punishment between these two. We saw Barbed Wire Tables, Chairs, Baseball Bats, Kendo Sticks and even an…N64 Controller!

Sami took a ton of punishment, but the story was basically playing with Eddie’s emotions to bait him into bad dives, and openings for Sami to move out of the way, or sneak in a barbed wire shot. Eddie hit a Blue Thunder Bomb on a barbed wire chair, Sami hit an Avalanche Piledriver through a barbed wire table, but none of this was enough. If anything, the Piledriver just pissed Eddie off.

Going for the callback that started it all, Sami tries to hit a Barbed Wire Chair into Eddie’s face with a Barbed Wire Bat, but Eddie hits a low blow to get a moment. Sami tries to bring himself up with a chair, Eddie hits the Boston Knee Party, then the Diehard Flowsion for the win!

Eddie hasn’t hit that Flowsion in a long time. I did appreciate Sami paying homage to Cactus Jack and Striker acknowledging Jun Akiyama and Mitsuharu Misawa on commentary though.

Moose, Rich Swann &Chris Sabin vs Kenny Omega, Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows

The early onset is interesting. Karl Anderson and Chris Sabin start off and there’s some solid technical counter wrestling, and it’s fast paced action. Moose and Gallows come in to do a big boy showdown which worked fairly well, where Swann and Omega had a brief lockup before the Brothers come in to start heeling it up.

We get a lot of Japanese tag stylings, from the triple team that Team Impact pulls off, to the way the Club breaks up any type of momentum with their own train attacks into the corner. Moose looked amazing in this match. He went toe to toe with everyone, pulled off great moves like a Standing Moonsault, leaped to the top rope for a Spanish Fly and was a really good teammate, regardless of his issues with Rich Swann. Hell Swann and Moose even hit a Doomsday Device variant together. Small aside, I did like seeing Chris Sabin pull off Cradle Shock, which just doesn’t happen often enough anymore.

Omega almost has the match one on Rich, but the only one able to break it up was Moose, and he did so. Omega went into V-Trigger spamming mode to wipe out Moose, rock Rich and then a One Winged Angel won the match for the Bullet Club former members.

 

Overall Score: 6.75/10

Well this started off pretty bad, but at least it built upwards. The main even had a lot of fun wrinkles which increased the storytelling, psychology and overall enjoyment of the show. Hell even when Callis nearly jumped into the ring to break up a pin on Kenny was a good little nugget.

As I said in the weekly coverage, this is probably Taya’s final match, or at least one of the last, especially since they logically moved Rosemary back to Decay with Crazzy Steve. Eddie and Sami had a hell of blood feud and it was nearly cathartic. Let’s also not overlook the fact that Tasha and Kiera actually won the Knockouts Tag titles. I almost thought they wouldn’t win just because they are so charismatic and attractive without the titles, where Havok and Nevaeh don’t exactly have electric personalities. But I’m ecstatic that Kiera finally has a title in Impact!

With the pretty awful start for the wrestling and the commentary, which put the show behind the eight ball; but it did recover fairly well. Not nearly as good as Genesis, but it managed to keep the stories rolling and end on an interesting note. A pretty good show after all was said and done.

The Lonestar and #RetroAG did great as a team in their first outing last week, but now it’s the real deal! Will Stallion and Grey ride into the second round with high spirits? Or will they be brought down by Rockstar Spud and the Belfast Beast?

The new music hits, and it’s to Dain’s liking, but then it morphs into a remix of that whistling theme Maverick had in the first place. Well, it’s fitting for their brand of dysfunction. The teams sort out and Stallion starts against Maverick. They circle and tie up, Stallion headlocks but Maverick powers out, only for Stallion to run him over. Stallion stares Maverick down as they reset and start again. They tie up, Stallion headlocks again but Maverick works on an escape. Fans rally, Maverick powers out but Stallion runs him over again. Things speed up, Maverick hurdles then throws Stallion out, to do some skipping.

Stallion runs back in but is sent back out! Maverick does more skip step, but Stallion comes back to tie up. Stallion whips Maverick to a corner, Maverick goes up and over and does his trot. Stallion rushes in, only for Maverick to hip toss and calf kick him down to an armlock! Maverick wrenches the arm, but Stallion pushes free to tag in Grey. Grey is fired up because it’s the Dusty Classic! He dares “big man” Maverick to bring it, and Maverick says one moment. He tags to Dain! Dain is a bit bigger than 205 but Grey still ties up with him. Dain pushes Grey away to a corner! Grey comes back, ties up with Dain again and gets a headlock, but Dain powers out to run Grey over!

Dain runs, Grey ducks and hurdles, but he decides to avoid the punch. Grey leaps but the crossbody bounces off of Dain! Dain tags in Grey, they double whip Grey and Dain uses Maverick to trip Grey up for the back senton! Human weapon, scoop slam senton! Maverick covers, ONE! Maverick clamps onto an arm, wrenches, and Dain tags in. Dain BOOTS Grey down, then fireman’s carries Maverick for the SWINGING BOOTS! Dain even RAMS Stallion with Maverick! Dain lets Maverick go back to the corner so he can CLUB Grey! Dain then fireman’s carries Grey but Grey slips out to tag in Stallion!

The Cruiserweights go after the heavyweight together! Mule kick, front kick, forearm and ROLLING ELBOW! They bring Dain in but Dain DOUBLE SUPLEXES them! Grey and Stallion bail out, Maverick tags in and he says Dain is the one to dive?! Fans want to see it and Dain gives it a try, only to pick up Maverick and TOSS him! Maverick topples Stallion and Grey over and fans fire up! Dain goes out to fetch Stallion into the ring and then puts Maverick in. Dain clubs Grey down and Maverick covers, TWO! Maverick hikes up his pants and brings Stallion up, but Stallion hits a REVERSE NECKBREAKER!

Tag to Grey and Grey whips Maverick. Leap frog into HEADBUTT, then the BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Grey clamps on tight with a chinlock and Maverick endures. Fans rally up, Maverick fights up, but Grey keeps him from Dain. Maverick keeps trying but Grey wrangles him away. Fans duel now as Maverick fights up. Maverick throws body shots, backs Grey down, but Grey CLUBS Maverick first! Grey back suplexes, Maverick lands on his feet, and boots Grey away! Maverick hits Stallion for good measure, slides under Grey and hot tags Dain! Dain rallies with big clotheslines, then he TOSSES Stallion in! They both get LARIATS!

Dain brings Grey around for an OVERHEAD suplex! Dain runs in to corner splash Stallion, then does the same to Grey! He whips Grey into Stallion and SHOTGUN DROPKICKS them both down! Stallion staggers, but into an URENAGE! SLINGSHOT SENTON! Dain has the fans fired up as he aims at Grey, but Grey dodges, only to get the DIVIDE! Cover, but Stallion breaks it! Dain grabs Stallion and whips him to a corner, but misses to get buckles! Stallion runs at Maverick but gets double boots! Maverick rolls Stallion to his feet for a JUMPING NECKBREAKER! Grey staggers, blocks a kick and KNEES Maverick! Dragon sleeper to a SPINNING POWERSLAM! But Dain drops a senton on Grey!

Fans fire up as Grey runs but Stallion gets around him to waistlock. Stallion tries to lift, Grey SUPERKICKS Dain into the GERMAN! Bridging cover, ONE! Stallion tries a lateral press, but Maverick breaks it! Grey and Maverick brawl, Maverick hits him and Stallion back and forth! Fast hands and feet, but he gets mugged 2v1! Stallion and Grey stomp Maverick in the corner, CHOP him, then whip him corner to corner. Dain puts Maverick on the outside to BOOT Grey and buckle bump Stallion! Tag to Maverick, BOOTS at the corner! Dain drags Stallion up, Maverick LEAPS to take out Grey!

Dain POWERBOMBS Stallion! Maverick wants a high-five, but he gets used as a human weapon again, POWERBOMB SENTON! Cover, Maverick and Dain win!

Winners: Drake Maverick & Killian Dain, by pinfall (advance to the second round)

One of the more unique combinations in this year’s Dusty Cup gets through to the next round! But they’re going up against a couple of rascals in MSK, will the dysfunction fall apart?


My Thoughts:

A pretty good 205 Live that at least got over half an hour this time. Legado VS Bollywood Boyz was a good opener, and it makes sense for Legado to advance. There is always a good story behind a faction wanting to have title belts for each member, but there’s a good chance they’re facing Imperium next round. Imperium wants to do the same thing between both NXT and NXT UK, and Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner will definitely want to get back to the titles. In the end, I don’t see Legado or Imperium being Dusty Cup winners, though.

Maverick & Dain VS Stallion & Grey was a good match, but with Stallion having the Cruiserweight title shot in his back pocket, and with Maverick & Dain being a fan favorite combo, it makes sense Maverick & Dain won. I just knew that Maverick’s new choice for a theme was really just a swerve. Dain & Maverick are probably losing to MSK, though, as MSK are new and it’d mean a lot more if they got into the semifinals. Though again, I wouldn’t see Dain & Maverick winning the cup, even if there is some story there between them and Lorcan-Burch. Though that would be a great shocker.

My Score: 8.3/10
