This week’s episode started with Io Shirai coming to the ring. She said she doesn’t need any friends and doesn’t need any of us. Then walked off. It may have taken her longer walking to the ring than how long she actually talked.
After this, Velveteen Dream held a backstage press conference. When he was asked who his next opponent would be for his title, he declined to answer. He was then asked how he felt about Roderick Strong wanting a title shot but Dream said he isn’t ready. Velveteen was then done after those two questions and walked off.
We then go to our first match of the show with Damian Priest vs Blanco Loco. This was all Priest. The only offence Loco got in was a punch, two at the most. Priest would eventually finish the match with a whirlwind kick followed by a spinning inverted neck breaker he calls The Reckoning.
Following this was a segment with Killian Dane as he keeps the tradition of talking while riot films are being projected on the wall. This time around he brings up some pretty horrible things that have happened to him. He says he hasn’t forgotten and carries his stories with a badge of honour. He then reminds us that everything was taken from him and he will now take everything he wants.
Next up was another first-round match of the Breakout Tournament with Jordan Myles vs Boa. Once again, we get another entertaining match in the tournament. Myles though would get the win with a 450 splash that he calls the Midnight Star.
Some more promos followed after that. First, Baszler doesn’t care about Mia Yim’s backstory. She said she’s heard it too many times already from other athletes. Baszler would close out by saying the story is always the same when someone faces her with either a tap, nap, or snap. Next, Keith Lee said he never gets looked at as a top person but there’s going to be a change and he will be the main event. And last, Regal announces that next week Kushida will take on Apollo Crews.
The main event followed with The Street Profits defending their tag titles against Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. This was a great back and forth match. The Profits seem confident and comfortable as champions which makes them even more entertaining than they already were. In the end, the Profits would win with spine buster from Dawkins followed by a frog splash from Ford. After the match, the Undisputed Era would come out to applaud the Street Profits as the show came to a close.
And that wraps it up for this week’s episode. Next week we have the last match in the first round of the Breakout Tournament with Dexter Lumis vs Bronson Reed and also Adam Cole will defend his title. Thanks for reading and long live wrestling!
