Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly

This match was tonally all over the place. Cole started the match by playing an incredibly over-the-top heel that could not possibly be taken seriously. That does not strike me as a bad idea given that this match took place in Chikara. However, he ended up getting away from his Chuck Taylor impression and tried to match Kyle’s un-ironic, faux-MMA tone for the second half of the match before winning the match with a Fruit Roll-Up. Kyle was solid in this match. Cole was all over the place, and I did not particularly enjoy watching him here. (**1/2)
