Report by Dot Net staffer Zack Zimmerman
1. Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Jimmy Havoc. Very fun start to the show. Zack won with a bridging backslide. He got cut hard-way and still has a bunch of matches left today and this weekend.
2. James Drake defeated Rockstar Spud. They told a really good story with Spud as the underdog taking the heat for 80 percent of the match. Drake won with a sit-out lifting DDT.
3. Jinny defeated Tony Storm. Jinny stole the win with her feet on the ropes. They worked very hard and the match was pretty solid.
4. Travis Banks and TK Cooper (w/Dahlia Black) defeated Sami Callahan and Shane Strickland. The South Pacific Power Trip won with an assisted brainbuster. This is the only match thus far to top the Ricochet vs. Keith Lee Evolve 80 match from yesterday.
5. Matt Riddle defeated Trent Seven to retain the Atlas Championship. Riddle retained with the Bromission. They worked hard, but it didn’t really work for me.
6. Tyler Bate defeated Mark Andrews to retain the WWE UK Championship. Bate retained after a very good back and forth match. Bate busted out some very unexpected stuff, including a standing shooting star press, in this one. He performed the Tyler Driver ’97 for the win.
7. Pete Dunne defeated Mark Haskins to retain the Progress Championship. Haskins kicked out of two tombstones, a pedigree, and pumphandle flatliner, but he couldn’t escape the Regal Stretch. Dunne retains. Solid match.
