Josh’s Reaction: I thought this was a really good opener. I thought that Angelico had his best performance so far, but can’t forget about the matches he had with Ivelisse and Son of Havoc. Mundo had a good outing even though he was being challenged throughout the match. Fun opener.

Josh’s Reaction: Series is tied two for two in this best out of five series. I wonder if the unique opportunity is going to be mid-card championship since they’re debuting new titles. There hasn’t been one bad match in this series and can’t wait to see the finale of this series and I don’t think either guys will be negatively effected by losing this series.
