Blade gets a sneaky rollup for two. Claudio right back to it with a Sharpshooter. Butcher assaults Claudio to break it up. Butcher and Blade hit a double team move for two, as Wheeler returns to break up the pin. Claudio with almost an Attitude Adjustment for two.

The champion manages Beach Break however for two. Orange Punch hits, but with the bad arm. As Orange crawls for the pin, Moriarty counters with a submission but gets cradled for the pin.
Winner: Orange Cassidy
Rating: ***. Solid wrestling in this one and Orange is always a fun guy to watch.
Satnam Singh walks out, as Lethal and Jarrett sneak attack Orange Cassidy with their well earned Golden Globe award. The Best Friends look to save but get beaten down as well. Jarrett looks for the guitar shot, but the Acclaimed run out to make the save. That was a whole lot of unexpected run-ins.
Final Thoughts: Well, while I don’t think there was anything actively bad on the show, nothing much major of note occurred. Most of the storyline advancement was done in backstage promos, and two of the matches were essentially squashes. That said, the opener and main event were fun, but there isn’t much to go out of your way to see on this episode. 5.5/10.
