Keep Refreshing For The Latest Results

Hey guys, Jeremy here. Tony’s running a little late so I’m covering the pre-show! We all know the hype stuff, we’ve seen it all before but we do have a match coming so looking forward to that.

Excalibur and Tony Schiavone welcome us to Daily’s Place and break down the card tonight, then go back to the hype videos, looking at Young Bucks vs. MJF and Jericho first.

Britt Baker comes out and says that Reba cannot compete after being attacked by Nyla Rose, and while her own doctor’s note wasn’t enough to make her ineligible, but she got the Jacguar’s doctor to agree with her. Reba comes out on a crutch. Baker says she found the perfect replacement and partner for herself — Maki Itoh! Okay then, let’s go.

Britt Baker & Maki Itoh vs. Thunder Rosa & Riho

Baker and Riho start off with some counter wrestling, with Riho getting the better of Baker. Baker gets into the ropes for the break and then kicks Riho in the gut. Irish whip into the ropes, cartwheel into a dropkick and another. Riho off the ropes into a hurricanrana. Front facelock to Baker, Rosa tags in but Baker gets free and tags in Itoh! Rosa and Itoh lock up, waistlock by Rosa turned into a headlock by Rosa and then an armbar attempt — and a middle finger to Baker. Itoh back up though with a headlock, shot into the ropes and they collide with no one going down. They trade shots and Itoh gets the worst of it, Rosa takes Itoh down and she starts to cry. Rosa says “Really?” and gets her foot stomped on. Itoh comes off the ropes but gets knocked down, she sends Rosa into the corner and splashes her, back across the ring and then a bulldog off the ropes. Itoh with mounted punches, Rosa gets out of it and drops Itoh face-first on the turnbuckle. Rosa tags in Riho, suplex, and then drops Riho onto Itoh for a two-count. Drop-toe hold into the ropes and a 619 for another two-count. Maki in the hostile corner and Rose tags in, snapmare and cover for two. Riho runs in, dropkick to Britt and then one to a held Itoh! Baker tags in Riho and she starts to trade punches with Itoh. Riho takes over with a kick to the gut, she comes off the ropes but gets tripped by Britt! Baker beats on Riho and rolls her into the ring, Itoh is excited, she goes for her diving headbutt and Riho moves!

Baker tagged in, she catches Riho and a cravat and lays in knees to Riho’s head. Baker mocks Rosa and then hits a suplex for two. Baker steps on Riho to choke her on the bottom rope, tags Itoh in and Itoh with a snapmare into a camel clutch-style sleeper. Riho gets free and gets to the ropes to force the break. Itoh slams Riho into the corner, whip across the ring and charges in, Riho moves! Up top and a diving crossbody for two. Riho tagged in and Britt as well, Rosa comes in on fire and takes Baker down! Charging five onto Baker, she backs up and hits a running basement dropkick. Butterfly suplex and she comes off the ropes for a senton, cover for two. Rose picks Baker up but she escapes out the back and pushes her into the hostile corner, Itoh tags in. Slingblade to Rosa from Riho, Itoh with the diving headbutt to the gut and gets two. Rosa though with a Stunner out of nowhere and tags in RIho! She takes out Baker and Itoh, Baker comes in and attacks Riho. Rosa is in, Itoh hits her with a swinging DDT of the ropes! She pulls Rosa to the center ofd the ring and goes up for the top rope diving headbutt — Rosa moves! Riho charges for a diving knee and ITOH REVERES into a single-leg crab! Riho struggles but gets to the ropes. Riho up now and they’re trading pushes, Riho takes over with punches but Riho blocks it…with her head? I don’t get that. But Baker is in and hits a sidewalk slam for a nearfall. Riho tags in Rosa, rollup for two. Britt with a backslide for two, they counter with a series of nearfalls. Reba on the apron arguing, Baker tries to take Rosa out but Rosa moves! Pin attempt is broken up by Itoh, in the chaos that follows Reba manages to hit Baker Rosa with the crutch! Baker with the pinfall win.

Winner: Britt Baker & Maki Itoh (15:31)
Rating: ** 1/2
Thoughts: Solid pre-show match to start it off. Itoh’s US debut was a pleasant surprise, and while there were some awkward transitions and a bit of telegraphing it was enjoyable all in all. As a pre-show match I have no complaints.

They do the final hard sell stuff, and we’re going into the PPV. I’m switching over to Tony now, have fun and enjoy the show!

Winners: The Young Bucks
The first few minutes of this was a mess. Typically, the chaos is welcomed, but it was odd when the rules were basically just ignored completely until about two minutes in. I wouldn’t mind if Jericho and MJF didn’t follow the rules, but the fact that at times, The Bucks kind of just stood on the apron while rules were being broken was somewhat annoying. Aside from that, they picked up steam once the match got into a solid flow. Jericho played his role well and MJF is just an asshole in all the best ways.

Holy hell, there are a lot of teams on this damned roster.

They almost got us at the end there, but with a distinct lack of emotional investment, it took a while to fully get into the match. I love that Shida kept trying the knee, and that the win wasn’t flashy, but was more desperate than anything else.

I could do without Cody the Try Hard, but everything else about this was tons of fun. Page being the surprise was cool, even if it didn’t come off as a big deal when he came out. I predict he’ll be a long time player. Archer continues to just be a star, but Sky’s win was something I was clamoring for. A fun ladder match.

This match is not live, but is more of a cinematic approach.

We get a low angle of Starks walking in a parking structure, then getting into a sick ass sports car with cage. Over the top view of the car driving away, and we pan to the car pulling up to some spot. They get the hero’s walk as they enter a warehouse with a ring in it, and a fan. They hop on the apron and enter the ring, shoing confusion. A ref awaits them, and the screen goes black.

Sting is in a car with a tapedeck, and turns the volume up. It’s a truck that drives by a person with a blowtorch and a black and white mask. Sting drives around while we see Darby skateboarding in the street. Hooded figures with face paint enter the place where the ring and Cage sits. Darby continues his skateboarding as Sting drives through, what I assume is Florida, and continues en route. Darby meets the truck as it turns, and latches onto the back. They make their way to the warehouse and Darby and Sting walk in together.

Sting, Darby, and the hooded fools follow. Sting and Darby enter the ring as the hooded figures circle the ring. Bell rings and…

Match 7: Street Fight

Back in the ring, Sting hits another splash. A running clothesline sends Ricky outside. Sting leaves the ring, chasing Ricky. Sting has a baseball, and smacks the wall. Sting tries to corner Ricky, then tosses the bat at him. Sting gets close to Ricky, picks up the bat he just threw. Ricky tricks him, saying Sting is nothing without the bat. Sting kicks Ricky and sends him into the wall, again. Again, into the wall. Sting with an elevated right hand. Over and over.

We head to a stairwell, and Cage looks to suplex Darby. But first, he lifts and walks up the steps with a a delayed vertical, then suplexes Darby onto a trash can.

Winners: Sting and Darby Allin
Ya know, when you watch the WWE for as long as I have, you kind of get conditioned to expect quick cuts at such a high number that to play a drinking game with them would leave you in a hospital, so it feels very taboo of me to say I didn’t like the amount of them that was in this little cinematic experience. The good news is, that went away once the real action started. This was a great way to hid Sting’s shortcoming (assuming he has any, because do we REALLY know that he does), and let Darby shine both in front of, and behind the camera. I had fun.
