The wrestling itself had a consistently good quality from the first match to the last, we had an excellent showcase for Trinity and Under Siege is really taking shape as a very tidy looking card indeed. Very impressed with this week’s show and only a couple of minor blemishes to crow about, but a really strong show on the whole. 👍 Trinity vs KiLynn King - Excellent in-ring debut and showcase for the former. Her entire aesthetic in terms of entrance and offence really stand out in this company in a way that perhaps it couldn’t in WWE. 10 minutes may not seem like a long duration in the grand scheme of things, but I can’t remember the last time she had this much TV time in a singles match to really showcase her attributes, and she certainly looked the part. Really good contest here with King playing her part as well. Fun post-match interaction between Trinity and Jai Vidal afterwards too. Excellent. 👍 Edwards/Moose/Kazarian vs Gresham/Shelley/Uemura - They got 20 minutes to strut their stuff in a solid TV main event and didn’t disappoint. Everyone looked the part and this should be an interesting 6-way at Under Siege. Fun show closer. 👍 Dango turns on Hendry 🥲 - A shocking reveal as it turns out Dango was the culprit who took out Santino! I haven’t been so devastated by a heel turn since Austin shook hands with Vince at Wrestlemania X7. Shame, bloody loved Dango and Hendry as an odd couple partnership. Well executed although I’m absolutely gutted the investigation is over! 👍 Trey Miguel/Laredo Kid - A fine start to the show and exactly the kind of opening contest you want to get the juices flowing, also showcasing a division which still holds value on the Impact brand. Trey’s a proper shithouse and a good heel to effectively lead the division. Nice action from bell to bell and a good finish. 👍 Following on from the above, Chris Sabin’s promo rattling off the X-Division title’s history and how Try has defaced the title was all good shit and that’s a match I’m now really looking forward to at Under Siege. His ‘nine-time’ schtick came off a bit ‘nine days’ if you catch my drift, but otherwise this was a great way to build to their encounter. 👍 Ace Austin/Jason Hotch - Rock solid and a good way to continue from the action we saw in the opener - Impact has been really good recently at keeping the momentum going throughout its cards and this show was another good example of that. 👍 Jody Threat squash - I like this lass. They’ve done a nice job building her up so far and I don’t think it will be too long before she’s inserted into the Knockouts title picture. This was only a quick showcase, but she showed her usual high energy to keep it interesting. 👎 Maclin attacks PCO - One of the very few items on the show that perhaps didn’t quite have the desired effect for me. The initial skirmish with the punches looked a bit weak, and then placing PCO on top of some conveniently placed cardboard seemed a bit naff. The easily broken concrete slabs also looked a bit tinpot. PCO sold that part convincingly, though in a way it probably unnecessarily dehumanised him. It worked as an idea in terms of further establishing Maclin as a despicable bastard, particularly following his actions on the previous show against Rhino, but the execution lacked polish in this instance. 👎 Undead realm business - Bit too much silly bollocks going on here for me. But each to their own. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
