  • Tajiri def Damian Slater
  • TJ Perkins def Da Mack
  • Lince Dorado def Mustafa Ali
  • Akira Tozawa def Kenneth Johnson

Once I saw Damian Slater, I thought I was screwed with my Tajiri pick. Glad to be proven otherwise! Nice to see the Japanese Buzzsaw do his thing – it’s been a while. Hope his knee is all right…

TJ Perkins vs Da Mack had a very PWG feel going into it. Expectations were high, and they were met. Really fun match. Let’s go TJP! Lumpia for all!

Lince Dorado and Mustafa Ali got a “This is awesome” chant and I didn’t even hate it. Solid performance by those guys. Glad to see more Lince in round two.

Kenneth Johnson was clearly outmatched by Akira Tozawa, but managed to hold his own enough to have a pretty fun match as Akira put on a clinic.

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
