Powell’s POV: Jim Ross and Josh Barnett were the broadcast team. This was a terrific show despite the Takahashi neck injury, and the rib injury suffered by Ross. I covered the event live as it aired on Saturday night and recorded an audio review that is still available exclusively to Dot Net Members.
