Fuck yeah, I love those matches announced. Especially Sami/Hulk, it'll be brutal.
Btw, Finlay will wrestle Jon Davis. Davis challenged him in a post match promo at EVOLVE 10. I'm fine with that, since Davis is awesome.
Ah yeah, forgot about that. Perfectly acceptable match, but I still want Finlay/Ki. That equals iPPV buys.
Wasn't thinking about the heel vs. heel dynamic for Hulk/Sami. It'll be interesting to see who the crowd cheers, although my guess is Hulk since he'll kick the shit out of him. As far as BxB goes as a wrestler, literally everything I've seen from the guy has been great. Matches vs. YAMATO, Gargano, & Tozawa are all recent good shit but I haven't seen enough to have a true opinion on him to argue against.
Don't know how good the Sami/Hulk match will be considering Sami's finisher is the Stretch Muffler and if there's one thing that even God can't make Hulk do is selling a leg for more then five seconds. Really hope this is the last series of shows Sabu is doing because he's terrible, the feud with D.U.F. is terrible and all it's doing is wasting time and everyone involved.

Good show to open up the season they were able to establish alot of the feuds we will be getting this year.Really enjoyed Ophidians new heel character.
Callahan vs Severn was better then i thought it would be. but the show as a whole was a downer, it was not filmed by smart mark video, which i guess is the new deal goin forward,and the way the show was taped sucked. there was only like 50 fans there killing the atmosphere and just alot of lousy matches. iwa east coast has been a shell of its former self since its return.
