FTR vs Private Party

This match started as soon as the show started with no entrances.

Aubrey Edwards had to take control of the match early on. Tully Blanchard was in FTR’s corner.

FTR took some quick offense from Private Party and they rolled out of the ring. Cash and Dax used some tag team distraction so Aubrey would be distracted and allow them to get an advantage.

Private Party took control over Dax and they were tagging out quickly to apply a series of quick moves. Dynamite will be on Thursday next week they reminded us of that during this match.

FTR were taking offense and then begging off as their tactic. Marq Quen fought off both members of FTR when they tried to blindside him with a tag, but Dax eventually took control and laid in some thunderous chops and then he choked him on the middle rope.

Then Dax racked Quen’s face across the top rope as he continued his punishment. FTR nearly got a pinfall after a double team clothesline into a rull-up, but Isiah jumped in and broke up the pin.

Harwood tagged in and Cash went for a dive, but he missed Quen and landed on the guardrail. Isiah took a hot tag and landed some forearms and then hit a springboard stunner on Cash before kicking Dax. He then hit a flipping stunner on Dax for a two count.

Quen hit a springboard off the top for a two count on Dax next. Quen then got an inventive pin for another near fall. They traded some more near falls as Dax bridged out of a pinfall. Then Cash took the tag and he hit a spinebuster after a series of leapfrogs for a two count.

Dax was removed from the room and Isiah missed a dive as Tully pulled Dax away from him. Quen was left alone and Cash posted him before tagging Dax. They hit the Goodnight Express and that was the end of it.

Winners: FTR

Jon Moxley cut a sick promo on MJF.

MJF cut a promo from his headquarters. He was in a neckbrace. He wasn’t happy about Moxley. They want to get the Paradigm Shift banned. MJF had his “attorney” Mark Sterling said they got 5 million signatures on their petition. In reality, they got 4,390 signatures (I just checked).

The Lucha Bros & Butcher & Blade vs Jurassic Express & Natural Nightmares

They got off to a big start with the Lucha Bros hitting dives. This face fast-moving. Butcher and Blade then took the pain to QT, but he got out of a double team move and he hit a springboard handstand kick and Butcher stopped him. Then Penta kicked QT as he hung over the middle rope.

Dustin Rhodes took the tag and he started hitting everyone with punches and then he took down Blade with an armdrag and a legdrop on that arm.

Dustin ended up out of the ring and the Lucha Bros took some cheap shots. Rhodes took more abuse from the heels. Then Fenix took a tag and he hit a move off the ropes on Dustin before they went to commercial.

When we came back from commercial, it was total chaos as Luchasaurus as finally getting in the match. Jungle Boy hit a dive on Fenix and then he hit another dive on the opposite side of the ring.

Luchasaurus and Penta continued in the ring and Penta kicked out after a standing moonsault. Butcher took the tag and then Blade nailed a stunner and Butcher hit a shining wizard.

QT took a kick from Fenix and a slingblade from Penta. Then Dustin Rhodes nailed a Canadian destroyer on Fenix. Fenix and Blade started buckering and Penta pushed Blade into a roll-up pin for Jungle Boy. That’s the match.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
