The last two matches and the Walter match were all very good. Ciampa and
Bones broke the brand new ring temporarily when the middle rope got
unhooked on one side on a hard whip-in. The tag match was insane with
off the charts heat and fan interaction and really should have been the
main event as nothing could top it.

Great show with all matches delivering. The tag title switch was a big surprise, I guess they'll lose them again tonight, either to Hot & Spicy or Reign of Terror and those teams wil feud over the belts the next few months.
 
The main event was a perfect match from start to finish that had everything. There was not a single wasted or unnecessary move and for me, it's an early MOTY candidate, an opinion shared by all the wrestling journalists I talked to afterwards. People really should go out of their way to see that one.
 
Final four in the tounament are Big van Walter, Adam Cole, Chris Hero and Axel Tischer. Any combination of the four should be good, but I guess we'll get Walter and Hero in the finals and one of them will go home a two-time winner.
 
Alan4L has taped interviews with lots of the guys in attendance and will either collect the thoughts of the various empire memebers tonight or we'll join him for a wrap-up on one of the upcoming DKP shows.
 
I'll be live tweetng results @DarkMatEU, if anybody wants to follow us. I gotta get ready to get killed in the fans vs. wrestlers soccer match now. I'll send in quick results of Day 3 tonight, if I'm still alive... :)
