Road Rager kicked off with Jericho vs Ortiz: Hair vs Hair
Regal was on commentary and that’s always a plus. This was a great match. They did a lot more than I anticipated and the crowd was into it. There’s a lot of story behind this match and the fans who didn’t already know saw how good Ortiz is. This was an all time Dynamite opener for me. That ending made me laugh so hard. Then the reveal of it being Sammy made me like him again. It’s a Miracle!!
Next was Wardlow vs the 20 black shirts. I love all of this build. Wardlow looks *dope* as hell with the fire pyro. Ok so it’s a battle royal? Wait what? Ohhh so the first ones was knocked out, ok. This was fine enough. It was fine enough…but I love UFC and Top Team. Woodley is one of my favorite fighters so enjoy seeing them if they take it seriously. Wardlow isn’t a great promo but he’s underrated on the mic.
Dan Lambert is a great guy to feud with Wardlow.
Next was Will Ospreay vs Dax Harwood. Who had this as a dream match? No disrespect to Dax but I’ve never heard that in my life. This was a good match with enough reason for being. I would’ve liked him to wrestle Trent in his singles debut though. There was a brawl after the match and Orange Cassidy made his return and I popped hard. Ospreay vs Cassidy is actually a dream match for me for whatever reason.
Mox and Tanahashi face to face was next. Im a big fan of both these guys and I’m excited for the match. I don’t know why Jericho came out here. He was flanked by Tay and Sammy. Now that the are heal on purpose I like them. Suzuki Gun and JAS jumped Mox and Tana to end the segment. Ok… let’s go le sex gods! I Already have that hoodie! Weird segment but I’m down with the sickness.
Miro vs Ethan Page was next and I wish Ethan didn’t get Miro round one. Both men are great but Miro is probably the favorite to win. I’d like it to be Malakai Black personally.
Next was Toni Storm vs Britt Baker 2: Electric Boogaloo. Good match the right woman won this time. It was about as good as the first match.
Winner: Toni Storm
Next was a backstage promo with Stokely Hathaway. He’s the best. Will Nightingale interrupted and cut a dry promo.
Hangman Page was out next and he cut a promo. He was interrupted by Adam Cole and Jay White hit Page with a blade runner then cut the same promo he always does that always works. I love Jay White.
Your main event was the tag team title ladder match. Young Bucks vs © Jungle friends. This match was great not as great as it should’ve been but circumstances out of there control prevented this match from reaching its advertised potential. I love tag team wrestling and this was a great match with the right winners. CHRISTIAN FINALLY DID IT!
Winner: Young Bucks
