Recap from TJ Hawke:
ACH is the best. That sentence sums up everything that happened before the bell rang. Before there was any action, they cut to a horrendous hard camera angle that must have been fifty yards away from anyone in the crowd or the ring. They did a lot of “one man out, two men in the ring” stuff early on. ACH hit a snap Falcon Arrow on Beverly for an early nearfall. Gory spat something in ACH’s face and then locked in a Cobra Clutch variation. ACH had to tap out. Bullshit. Gory worked over Beverly. Gory eventually went for a Superfly Splash, but Beverly avoided it. They traded Tombstone attempts. Beverly then hit a superkick and Emerald Frosion: 1…2…3!
Beverly is really over in his hometown, so I think it makes sense that he is booked to be strong in this promotion. However, I definitely disagree with ACH being eliminated by Jason Gory. Gory is fine and all, but ACH is someone who should be getting a big push no matter where he is booked. This match also probably would have been better if it was a four-way with two heels or something similar. The two babyface/one heel dynamic was awkward.
Match Rating: **1/2
