Winners: The Young Bucks
I’ve never been a big fan of a face who suddenly loses all of their face moves when they turn heel, especially when they gain the knowledge of mean moves like a back rake. It’s not the biggest gripe, just something kinda small. But this small thing was highlighted, especially with Matt tagging on the “face” side, the entirety of that “hot tag/fake cry” segment, and just the all around over the topness of it. It all would have worked better had The Bucks not been incredibly inconsistent over the past year. That’s literally the only complaint I had, though, because this was greeaaattt! Love Rey, Love Pac, love when they are given time.

Hangman is backstage with The Dark Order. Marvez asks Page about The Good Brothers and The Young Bucks. Page takes a sip and updates everyone on Silver’s shoulder. 4 – 6 weeks. Page ignores the question, claiming he’s going to get egg rolls.

ONCE WE RETURN, Marvez is with Mike Tyson and The Inner Circle. They are friends now. Jericho says yes, and this is why: they decided to change their ways, have a new attitude, and right some of the wrongs they committed. Jericho called some people to apologize, and Tyson was one of those men. They have been at each other’s throats for ten years, but Jericho respects him because he has been relevant and stayed on top. Tyson told him if he ever needed anything, he’d be there. So he asked Mike to be there, and thankfully Mike had their back. Tonight, he’s the special enforcer. Jericho doesn’t want special treatment; call it down the middle. Tyson says he is firm but fair, so best man wins. He won’t take any sides. If Jericho messes up, he can get knocked out again. Jericho says he still remembers that punch.

Match 2: Red Velvet vs Jade Cargill

RED ATTACKS!!!! Jade doesn’t even finish her entrance before she hits the rights and lefts. Unfortunately, Jade comes out of the corner with a huge pump kick.

WE are back, and Red hits an enziguri to the back of the head. She misses a splash, but Jade misses a spear, and hits the post! Red falls to the mat as the ref checks on Jade. Red stands, Jade is up, they rush each other into the corner, and Jade no sells. A clothesline and Jade is still standing. Red with a t hird, this time hooking and Jade is dropped! Red hits the ropes again, wheelbarrow into a bulldog! Red with a standing moonsault! Pin for 1……NO!!! Red drags Jade into the corner. Kick from Jade. Red drags her over to the corner.

Red to the corner. She gets to the top, flies, and tries for a moonsault, but Jade rolls away, then hits the Glam Slam! Cover for 1..2…..3!!!

Winner: Jade Cargill
This was, by far, the best match Jade has had. This is coming from someone who was most definitely wasn’t a fan. OF course, a bulk of this was Red Velvet looking great, but Jade played her part well. Pleasantly surprised.

In the ring, Dax looks to powerbomb Dax, but Sammy on the apron. Jericho with a back body drop. Judas Effect. Pin for 1..2…3!!!

Winner: Chris Jericho
That start was rough, but in a good way. They did not let up. The over-booked mess was also fun, simply because it makes sense. These guys are not friends, both singularly and as a group. Tyson was somewhat unnecessary, but damn did he give Cash a hell of a punch. Like holy shit. Also got to love them selling it with Wardlow carrying Cash out.

Jericho and The Inner Circle want to make it official that Mike Tyson is officially a member of The Inner Circle.

Marvez is outside with Omega, The Bucks, and The Good Brothers. Callis kicks him away and goes to hard cam. He says if the wrestling world has learned one thing about them, it’s this: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t seen nything. When the Bucks came back into the fold, it wasn’t the end of the story, it’s just the beginning.

Omega grabs the mic, says he listens to the web, the podcast, and everyone is wondering why they changed. They didn’t, they just got sick of all of us non-sport numbnut fans wanting them to be just like us. They aren’t, though, and where they go, the gold will follow.

Matt says this is not all just fun and games. They are the best, and they are back. Matt puts the tag team division on notice. If they want a shot, they got a BTE Trigger with their damned name on it.

Callis now, if you wanted the old Bucks and Omega, you got it. Be prepared to be surprised again.

The Bucks pretend to Superkick the cam, stop, then let Callis do the honors.

Match 5: Kris Statlander vs Amber Nova

Kris sends Nova away hard, then hits an arm drag off the ropes. Another one. She boops Nova. Nova doesn’t take kindly to it. She swings for a kick, but Kris catches her, spins her into a hard right hand. Whip to the ropes, and Statlander with a powerslam. Kris lifts up Nova. Right from Nova. Again. Kick. She shoves Kris, then grabs a towel of some sort. She mushes Kris. Kris grabs her, presses her, then just drops Nova hard. Kris with an interesting leg drop then a senton. She gives a thumbs up to Orange Cassidy, then stands in the corner. She rushes the opposite, hits a running uppercut, hits the ropes, and hits a running knee strike, then follows up with a roundhouse kick to the back of the head.

Kris grabs Nova, hooks the legs, head in crotch, Super Nova by Kris. Pin for 1..2…3!!!

Winner: Kris Statlander
Statlander looked good on her return. Solid outing, even if it was the second squash match on a 2 hour show, it was mostly to remind is of who Kris is.
