Thunder Rosa Defeated Dr. Britt Baker In A Lights Out Non Sanctioned Match

Overall Review: This was an okay show but I think compared to last week, it didn’t too much for me throughout the majority of the show except for the main event. The opening match was good but the finish of it was kind of a let down. Cody just rolling up Penta for the win after Penta snapped his arm was disappointing. Penta snapped his arm, Cody should be really selling it to the point that he can’t do much. Jade Cargill had a pretty impressive showing but she’ll continue to get better for sure. The best parts of the show was MJF’s promo with Tully’s group and introducing The Pinnacle as the new dominant stable. MJF continues to kill it on the mic. I also think this should’ve been the opening to the show. Mix it up and have a promo segment like this especially since they could’ve immediately followed up by that ending to last weeks show. The tag match with Eddie and Moxley defeating The Good Brothers was what it was and the whole thing with The Young Bucks getting involved in the end is going to be interesting to see where it goes. The Christian Cage promo was pretty good too and since it looks like he’ll be there full time. We’ll see where he fits in to the main event scene since it looks like that is where he will be in. The whole thing with Lance Archer interrupting Sting again and Darby as he was cutting his promo still just doesn’t make any sense why he suddenly turned heel when he was getting a lot of steam as a babyface. What was even more eye rolling was Team Taz coming out and then Cage saying he respects Sting and teasing a whole split with Team Taz. I have no idea where it is going but I’m not big on it. Also it’s another segment where Sting is not talking and not doing much which is another waste of a Sting appearance. They don’t need to keep having Sting appear to do these interviews with Tony every week. It’s starting to get old. The match with Rey Fenix and Angelico was cool since it gave me Lucha Underground flashbacks. It’s just a different animal here and I don’t think it should’ve taken up as much time with a picture in picture break. The whole thing with Miro at first looked like it was going great as Miro was about to derail the whole rivalry with Best Friends but thanks to Kip that’s going to happen (just kidding). I really hope that their match with each other is the last. The main event with Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa though was worth the wait despite all of what happened in the show. These two women absolutely destroyed each other like I never would’ve imagined they would. Some of the spots seemed to have been executed a little awkward but for the most part both of them really showed the intensity of their rivalry and the amount of punishment they were willing to take really made me more of a fan of theirs. Thunder Rosa getting the win it looks like this might put her line against Shida which no doubt will be as good as the last time they faced.

Grade: 6/10
