WWE’s Madison Square Garden Homecoming is winding up. How will the high flyers fare in the World’s Most Famous Arena?
Akira Tozawa and Brian Kendrick vs Jack Gallagher and KUSHIDA
So, while the Singh Brothers go on their enlightenment quest, Kendrick and Tozawa dealt with the feud Kendrick picked with former friend, Jack Gallagher, and the Gentleman came well prepared for the tag team challenge by bringing in KUSHIDA to aid him against Kendrick and Tozawa.
I haven’t been terribly impressed by KUSHIDA’s run in NXT, but I’ve seen his stuff outside WWE, to know he’s an amazing wrestler. This match was REALLY good and got out of control pretty quickly. However, KUSHIDA and Gallagher would pick up the win. Welcome to 205 Live, KUSHIDA!
The Singh Brothers legit make me laugh. I loved them channeling the Rock. I do wish that WWE would treat them like the stars they really instead of just a comedy act. I still believe in the Brothers.
I love Kanellis being back. I love that he gives no fucks about Tony Nese. I did not know that Oney Lorcan was injured after last week. I still love that he’s determined to be champion, I’m not loving that they’re STILL going with this fucking awful storyline! C’mon, people. You can have a strong woman without making her an abusive bitch.
Humberto Carrillo, Lince Dorado, and Gran Metalik vs Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, and Ariya Daivari
I’m going to assume Carrillo and Dorado were supposed to go up against Nese and Gulak, but a sneak attack ended that idea, including bringing in Ariya Daivari, for some reason, so another multi-man match it is. Great.
The match was okay, but the fact that WWE is clearly trying to protect Carrillo and not having him do a promo on his own bothers me a little. Even when Gulak and Carrillo locked up, I can’t say my concerns were relieved, especially with Lince Dorado getting a pinfall win on Gulak, which should get him a title shot. I hope I’m wrong, but I’m not feeling confident about Sunday for the Cruiserweights.
