1. The Fightin' Taylor Boys (Brian Cage-Taylor & Ryan Taylor) vs. Famous B & Chris Kadillak
This was a shockingly good opener. Everyone looked good here, even Kadillak.
2. BxB Hulk vs. Jimmy Susumu
Solid Dragon Gate showcase. They didn't go balls-to-walls, it was a simple and relatively short work where Hulk shined. The match would've been better if Susumu bothered to sell his final comeback little more compelling. The finishing move was brutal.
3. The Young Bucks vs. Davey Richards & Harry Smith
This was awesome. The Bucks turn shit into gold, they're absolutely tremendous. I had low expectations for this one, but the Bucks not only saved the match, they also elevated it. Their antics kept things fresh all the time. Nick Jackson rules the damn world. Harry was really good here, it's so good to see him doing his own thing outside of WWE.
4. Naruki Doi vs. Willie Mack
Solid. Doi was playing a prick very well, some funny interactions with the crowd. The finish rocked, it was Mack shifting into his beast mode.
5. Joey Ryan, Peter Avalon, Ray Rosas & Demus 3:16 vs. Candice LeRae, B-Boy, Cedric Alexander & Mascarita Dorada
Awesome! Colorful characters, nice action, and a lot of fun. Mascarita Dorada and Demus highlighted this one, and this is the best Cedric Alexander match I’ve seen. The crod was hot here.
6. The Spiked Mohicans vs. The RockNES Monsters
Very good. Ricochet and especially CIMA were having a good time, they really made everything work and it was an entertaining watch. Goodtime was great too, but boy, does Johnny Yuma sucks or what?! Every time he enters the ring, the match almost dies. He takes things few steps back. He’s so painfully meh. But overall, this was really good, however, just imagine the Bucks in this match, instead of the RNM. Now, that would fucking rule.
7. Roderick Strong vs. Masaaki Mochizuki
Strike-heavy match, the best singles contest on the show. They were kicking each other silly on few occasions. Both guys are very intelligent wrestlers, and I’m glad Dragon booked this. Mochi is the man.
8. Kevin Steen, Super Dragon & Akira Tozawa vs. El Generico, Masato Yoshino & PAC
The MOTN. To be honest, I was expecting a much crazier match, a much bigger chaos. Instead, this was relatively steady and normal. But that’s not a knock, the match was really good. Everyone did their stuff, and they brought animosity, especially in the form of Steen vs. Generico and Tozawa vs. PAC.. There was a long FIP segment on Generico, that was very good, and Tozawa was the clear MVP of the match. That guy oozes charisma. Good match. Not great, but really good, strong main event.
Awesome show. Sure, it lacked the red hot Reseda crowd that would make some better atmosphere, but the show was very consistent, there was a ton of solid/good wrestling in the undercard, and the main event was strong. The whole event just flew by, so big thumbs up for this one.
