Bad Influence/Magnus/Aces- This was pretty underwhelming and left much to be desired, it felt random. Magnus just walks into the ring out of nowhere and suddenly Magnus becomes like super man and is taking out guys left and right.But still Bad Influences mic work was spot on as usual and Magnus was ok as a face, its still something to work on though.
Robbie E vs Joseph Park- This was a really fun match. When you have Joseph Parks in a ring, the skills and the action do not as matter as much as the entertainment and enjoyment. I also liked the tension building between Robbie E and Rob Terry.
Chavo Guerrero vs Austin Arries- What a dream match, two of the best high flyers in the world going at it, tons of spots, lots of story progression and a sick brain buster to close a very exciting matchup, I really reccomend to watch this match, for anybody who missed impact.
Bully & Brooke/ Sting/ Hogan- This was pretty strange, out of nowhere Hulk is getting all of this development and becoming so trustworthy of Bully after disliking him like a week or two ago was pretty much out of the blue. For what it was it was a nice feel good moment and set up a pretty cool match for next week.
Velvet Sky/James Storm vs Tara and Jesse- This match was a hell of a lot better than I thought it was gonna be, I thought Jesse was gonna be sub par in the ring but he held his own James Storm (sorta) and showed some nice in ring ability, the knockouts were also good as usual. It was energetic, it was entertaining and it was short and sweet.
Mr Anderson vs Kurt Angle- Definately could have been better, I was expecting this one to be up there with some of their great encounters like at Lockdown. For what it was it gave us a pretty cool match and some cool "suprises" with Garrett and Wes Brisco joining Aces. Even though alot of saw this coming, the whole moment just felt a little intense, the crowd and Kurt's reaction, the beatdown after Kurt was such a good mentor was just fantastic to watch and im a little more interested in Aces and Eight again
Rating: 6.9/10, thought it was inbetween 6 and 7 but higher than a 6.5
Overall: 6/10, this was a very stacked show but it was more about moments, entertainment and all of this fun stuff and a little less serious wrestling. The crowd did help the feel, it just felt so alive.
