I was expecting someone would ask that.
Joe/Daniels - nothing wrong with it, I just wasnt into it. I thought it was really serious, and not very fun to watch. The leg work was good, but it seemed like Joe was just letting Daniels do it, rather than trying to fight back.
8 man - It was fun, but had some really stupid stuff. For example, at the end Aries was pinned with the Air Raid Crash. He's taken no other big moves or anything before that. Fresh Aries gets pinned with one finisher here. Very tired Aries has kicked out of 2 finishers in his title reign. Aries shouldnt have been pinned. AJ Germaned Abyss through the table, 15 minutes in to a 20 minute match. Abyss didnt recover after this, but neither did AJ. Why not? Lots of legal man issues were thrown out of the window. It felt like a big sloppy brawl in the end.
Dragon/Strong - The crowd seemed really dead for this. The camera angles were bad, as they showed both men atalking to each other about what to do next. It was annoying that Dragon dominated pretty much the whle match, leaving Strong too tired making his comebacks worse. Things felt really misplaced, Strong hit a nasty backdrop driver, then both men rested and went back to restholds. That move should have been used later, not then. That same situation happened with other moves, eg. Strong's big powerbomb. Some botches as I like to call them - Dragon hitting a baseball slide dropkick sending Strong to the outside, but you can see that Strong goes to the outside before Dragon hits him, thus it doesn't connect at all. Also the belly to belly to the outside was dumb, as Strong clearly ran into the gaurdrail. And the crowd seemed really dead.
I thought the show didnt really have any excellent matches, and didn't feel fun at all.
