JTG vs. Tyler Reks
JTG goes on the offense early, showing his "mean streak." The last time they met Tyler walked out victorious, JTG obviously hoping to stop that from happening again. Reks escapes the ring but JTG takes him out with a baseball slide. JTG sends Reks back into the ring, he sends him to the ring but Reks responds with a knee into the gut of JTG. Reks begin stomping JTG down in the corner. Reks slams JTGs ribcage into the corner post, before getting the 2 count. Reks locks JTG in a body-scissors, simultaneous punching him in the face, trying to work on the bruised ribcage of the Street Smart Brawler. Reks releases the hold and attempts a pin, but only reaches two. JTG is up and begins throwing punches left & right at Reks. JTG attemps pinfal after pinfal, but Reks is able to escape at the last minute. JTG takes out Reks with a drop-kick to the face, gaining another 2-count.
Reks slides out of the ring to catch his breath. This distracts JTG and allows Reks to sneak in and hit a quick "Burning Hammer" drop and picks up the victory.
WINNER: Tyler Reks in 6:00. Good showcase for Tyler Reks. He has a good look and rarely botches in the ring. Once he throws in a more memorable fighting style and character he can go far in the E.
They hype the main event of Daniel Bryan/Mark Henry vs. Ted Dibiase/Tyson Kidd
Masters starts with early offense, but Curt is quick to turn things aorund. We are reminded of Masters injured shoulder. Curt Hawkins gains the advantage by attacking the injured shoulder. Hawkins is making short work of Christ Masters, stopping him at every turn. After a two count, Hawkins applied a headlock, Masters uses his strength to break free and hit a Samoan drop. Masters takes out Curt with a huge power bomb, though only gaining the 2-count. Masters locks in "Master-Lock" forcing Curt to submit.
WINNER: Chris Masters in 4:00. Very average match. Hawkins does nothing for me, Chris Masters deserves to wrestle people he can put on a lengthy, creative match with.
