The Spectral Envoy (UltraMantis Black, Hallowicked, Frightmare, & Blind Rage) vs. The Wrecking Crew [Jaka & The Devastation Corporation (Blaster McMassive, Max Smashmaster, & Flex Rumblecrunch w/ Sidney Bakabella)]
Story of the Match: Each tecnico took a turn getting worked over. The tecnicos eventually made a big comeback, and the match broke down. Oleg the Usurper ran in towards the end. After his first interference failed to give the Wrecking Crew the win, he tried to use his helmet. Frightmare grabbed the helmet and hit Blaster in the head with it. Blaster then tapped out to the Chikara Special.
Analysis: The match was nothing special to begin with, but the last five minutes were unnecessarily convoluted and threw shade on the proceedings. The match felt real clunky in the last few minutes and killed whatever momentum they could have built off the great “Off With Their Head” nearfall.
Match Rating: **1/2
