Guys like Suzuki and Shibata got superstar reactions that dwarfed any I’ve heard in any company over the last few years. And by the time you got to Okada and Tabahashi they might as well have been Austin and Rock. Some matches were more epic than others. Ospreay vs. Cassidy was shockingly great. Moxley vs. Tanahashi was OK but didn’t do that much for me considering it was the main event. There seemed to be a botch and premature ending in the 4-way with White pinning Cole, or if it was booked that way it was just awful and a flat ending to a great match. The long-awaited arrival of Caatagnoli was the best possible way to make fans not feel disappointed by Danielson’s injury. The show was just a home run, and the commentary team of Kelly, Excalibur, and Taz was the perfect combination of entertainment while treating the product like a legit sporting event and giving the background on these guys that was needed. JR should’ve sat this whole one out because it got noticeably worse when he joined.  But just a tremendous show that some are calling the best PPV since WM 17. 

I really enjoyed Kellys work, he is a wonderful announcer
