And managed to fit as many botches into their two minutes as they could. Great-O-Khan looks very rough around the edges.

O-Khan is awful, the type of gaijin heel who would've been used in NJPW in the '70s, but with so many options now you wonder why he's there.  I'm a big fan of Cobb's though.  His work in Lucha Underground as Matanza Cueto was just fantastic.  He's always been good in the ring, but his real life persona is boring without the gimmick.
O-khan comes off better in njpw matches, but not my cup of tea. The whole segment was pretty bad in my opinion. My wife asked if it was supposed to look like it did, and I said no, they just f’d a lot of stuff up. A roppigni/FTR rematch could work though. 


That flub with the completely mis-timed double-team neckbreaker was awful. Completely exposing the business. Made Cobb look bad too, and it wasn't his fault at all. Given that this is the first cluster fuck no contest in AEW history, it made everyone look bad.
