Lash Legend defeated Fallon Henley

This was not good.

This match opened with Henley gaining standing wrist control. Legend eventually escaped by using her other hand to break free, and from here on, the pair went back and forth trading moves. Legend established control with a chinlock. After a short attempt at a rally from Henley, Legend caught Henley in a hold (think torture rack meets abdominal stretch), leading to the submission victory.

Draco Anthony defeated Javier Bernal

This wasn’t poorly executed, but it bored me to tears.

Bernal started his WWE debut by securing a headlock. Bernal worked the headlock from corner to corner before taking the match down to the mat. Anthony escaped by converting the headlock into a backdrop.

Anthony began landing with heavy strikes before locking in a half nelson chin lock. Bernal fought out of the hold, but his rally was cut short after Anthony connected with a leg lariat, scoring the win.

James Drake defeated Bodhi Hayward

Before the match, Andre Chase cut a promo. He bragged about his new student Bodhi before the Grizzled Young Veterans interrupted him. Zack Gibson cut a counter promo, making clear his confidence heading into the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

This match wasn’t great by any means, but compared to the first two matches on the card, it felt like a shot of adrenaline.

Drake started the match with a headlock. Things picked up, however, after Bodhi escaped and launched an offensive sequence. Bodhi tried for a German suplex, but Drake blocked it, opening up Bodhi to some targeted strikes. Drake took the match to the mat once more with another headlock.

Bodhi fought free from the hold before connecting with multiple low tackles. He sent Drake to the outside, which led to a scuffle with Gibson. Once Bodhi was back in the ring, Gibson grabbed his foot. The distraction allowed Drake to land a nice dropkick into the corner, leading to the pinfall.
