Overall Review: It was a fun show but it did have it’s moments that I expected to be great but to me kind of fell flat. The AEW tag title match was pretty good and it turned the way it turned out except I expected Sammy Guevara to cost Jericho and MJF the match which didn’t happen. I honestly thought the reverse should’ve happened and the casino battle royal should’ve opened the show and the tag title match should’ve been right after that. The casino battle royal was a lot of fun although I think Luchasaurus should’ve been in there a lot longer than he should’ve. I love that Rey Fenix and Pac won this. They were my pick to win. The Women’s title match was another one that I expected to play out the way it did. The in ring action was really good but there was just not enough to really get me into this match. Even the run in afterwards was kind of whatever. Why did Nyla Rose, Britt Baker, Itoh and Reba get out of dodge when it was only Thunder Rosa that made the save? They could’ve easily ganged up on her too. The tag match with Miro started out really good but to have a 50/50 match after Miro and Kip beat them down before the match was stupid. This just made the beat down before the match seem pointless especially when Chuck Taylor was bleeding from it. This should’ve been just a quick squash for Miro and Kip to win instead of what they did. Hangman and Hardy’s match was really solid, was what it was. The ladder match I enjoyed although it wasn’t the most fluid at times. Some of the spots didn’t look like they were executed right. Sky winning the match was kind of questionable. I believe Lance should’ve got the win. With Sky winning, it’s okay but I don’t know it wasn’t the best decision. Christian Cage being revealed as AEW’s signee shocked the hell out of me! I thought he was going to continue his in ring career in WWE but never did I expect him to go to AEW especially after he had the whole reunion with Edge at the Rumble in January. I’m not mad at it though. It was definitely a pleasant surprise. I loved the Street Fight in the way it was done cinematic style. it made Sting look great and Darby did his great daredevil spots. I think it was probably the best match of the night. The Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch was what I expected it to be in terms of how bloody it was going to be. I really enjoyed it especially with the fact that this was my first experience seeing a whole deathmatch. Yeah it might not be better than deathmatches in the past but it is refreshing to see a match like this. The ending with Eddie Kingston saving Moxley was interesting. With how the pyro went off, I don’t see how Eddie Kingston would be knocked out from it. I mean I see what they were trying to go for but I don’t know it didn’t visually look like what they were trying to accomplish.

Grade: 6/10
