X-Pac opens today’s show by speaking about the NJPW show that took place at the Cow Palace last weekend.
X-Pac comments on the lack of employees at the Cow Palace, resulting in long lines and people being late arriving to their seats. He doesn’t think there’s a lot of shows at the Cow Palace anymore, and that could be a reason that they seemed unprepared to handle that amount of people.
He speaks about the scary spot that resulted in Takahashi seriously injuring his neck. He points out that people take chances every night and the wrestling business is dangerous, but he didn’t like that spot at all. Part of the wrestling code is that you always protect your opponent and he didn’t think Takahashi was protected well in that spot at all.
Speaking about the spot in the Jay White/Juice Robinson match that knocked over Jim Ross, X-Pac says this was incredibly reckless and careless and there was no excuse for that whatsoever. He understands where Josh Barnett was coming from when he jumped up from the announce table and jumped in the ring to the defence of his commentary partner.
He also points out that this match ended with a big feel good moment with Robinson winning the US Title, and that made it difficult for Omega & Cody to get the crowd back in the main event. Fortunately, by the end of the match they managed to do so.
