Episode 4(10/15) in the books. Overall I gotta say it was the most underwhelming episode thus far. Right off the bat you could tell there were some people who had the left the show. Crowd wasn't as lively and they took the lights off of them.
Briscoes/ANX was there. Briscoes video package beforehand was the real highlight. Hilarious stuff. The match was ok but I wanted more of an old school formula. Control segment wasn't long enough and the finish was meh. At the time of the tapings, having Jimmy revoke the win and saying no one are the number one contenders makes sense to set up Ladder War, but when the episode airs well after that match it's get you scratchin your head. Not their best encounter. **3/4
None of the other video segments really did anything for me. Although I will say I think Lethal has the most charisma of everyone on the roster.
Edwards/Elgin kinda disappointed me as well. Wasn't bad at all, just felt like they were rushing through things. Runnin through spots, not selling them enough, and again I wanted a long control segment that wasn't there. Edwards suicide dive to the outside was pretty awesome but besides that I think their Defy or Deny match was much better. And please, do not tease me with Nigel if he's not gonna wrestle. ***1/4
