Thoughts

Sorry this is late guys, had a family emergency so I didn’t have the time to do it yesterday. Anyway this show was average, just like the past 2 months. I like the look of Mason Ryan, he seemed solid in the ring.

The tag match was ok. Nothing flashy but nothing that bad. Same story with the divas match. The main event was a good solid wrestling bout. Oh and I decided to not talk about Brodus Clay until he competes against someone who has entrance music. Every match he has had since coming back have all constructually been the same. Which gets old very quickly in wrestling. Hopefully this isn’t all Clay can do because I think he has the goods.

Overall I’d give this show a C+. If you want to ask me a question, give me some feedback or anything else at all, you can email me; amdy985@hotmail.com or you can find me on twitter by finding @amdy985. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you next week!
