The Great Muta vs. Sting
Muta wiped out Sting with a pescado early on. Sting came back by military pressing Muta to the floor and then hit his plancha. Muta went after the eyes, but Sting came right back with his facebuster. Muta avoided the Stinger Splash. Sting blocked the moonsault. Sting avoided another moonsault. Muta avoided the diving elbow. They traded pinning combos. Sting applied the Scorpion Deathlock, but Muta got to the ropes. Sting went for the Stinger Splash again, but Muta sprayed him with mist and hit a crossbody: 1…2…3

This match was fairly underwhelming overall after a hot start. The match felt clunky and never came together in a satisfying way. These guys have been involved in better matches for sure.
Match Rating: **1/2
