Powell’s POV: A strong lineup. The previous show had the great main event, but the undercard was filled with too many tag matches. There are more singles matches and title matches this time around and even some of the undercard tag matches look intriguing. The show will be broadcast live on AXS TV and I will be doing live coverage that night. AXS is also holding a contest with two pairs of tickets to the event as prizes. For more details, visit Axs.tv.
