Four corner tag match was long at points, with a ton of restholds, but what a good match here. Little strange all the teams changed up their music, but was cool to see KOW get their live rapping entrance back. ANX really looked like they belonged here. Some of my favorite spots included a flip dive over the top by Hero that looked like a high dive in track and field, Shelton's top rope jump that suplexed in King and Jay Briscoe, and Claudio's UFO on Haas. I thought ANX might get the belts here, really improved a lot, but was happy to see Haas and Benjamin retain. I'd love to see them go into single's action, maybe later on down the road though.
Last match was def a MOTY leader. Edwards vs Richards was outstanding from all aspects. Hard hitting, great ring psychology from each, lot of painful looking moves. Shame Eddie lost the belt so soon, but it made sense for him to lose to Richards than someone like Daniels or Strong. Richards deserves this belt for what he has done, and it will be interesting to see how well he defends it this summer. I think we could see him defend vs Strong at Glory by Honor X in a Final Battle rematch, or take on some new combatants like Elgin, Ciampa, etc. Personally I'd love to see Steen reinstated and lead to a Richards-Steen match later this year, as in one night Steen became the #1 heel in the company quite fast.
