The Clash of Champions is behind us and Drew Gulak is still the Cruiserweight Champion. How will the Cruiserweights deal with this?
I have to say that if the match at Clash of Champions was supposed to be a coming out for Humberto Carrillo, it made clear that he needs more work. There were some very sloppy spots. I think he’ll get there, but he definitely needs to work on it some more.
I’m not sure what was up with the mouthpiece on Lince Dorado’s mask but it wasn’t a great look. I’m glad the LHP feud with Ariya Daivari is still going. This was a really good match for Dorado to rebound from after Sunday. Scrap that, this was an amazing match and makes a real case for keeping Dorado in the title picture and/or adding Daivari to it. I’m glad Dorado won, hopefully, it’ll lead to big things for him again.
Okay, now I’ve seen what happened to Oney Lorcan because of Tony Nese, I’m glad there’s going to be a feud between them because that beat down was nasty.
I don’t know why, but when Jack Gallagher came out in that short robe, I half expected him to be naked underneath it. The match was good, but Kendrick turning on Tozawa was the real shock of the match since they seemed to have been bros. I’m not really sure what’s going on with this, but it could be interesting.
Carrillo can really be something in the Cruiserweight division, but I don’t think he’s quite there yet. He’s got the look to either be a stereotypical old-school babyface or a surprising heel. I just wish I felt any connection to him.
Lorcan vs Nese seemed like it would’ve been more at home in the parking lot of a bar. It was a really good match and the feud seems intriguing, especially with Gulak helping Nese get the win, thus trying to neutralize Lorcan’s chances at getting another title shot, but Gulak should know better, cuz Nese is a former champ and will probably be wanting that belt back soon.
