1. Jason Kincaid vs. Lio Rush.
Final 1st round match in the top prospect tournment. Air Traffic Control is on full alert with these cruiserweights. Kevin Kelly was marking out for both men. Like, who can blame him? Both men debuted some sweet, unique moves that prompted the predictable "This is Awesome" chants, but, then, Kincaid also played subtle heel and gave Rush an eye gouge. Unfortunately, that only served to signal the end was near. Rush came back and hit a swank, sick looking bulldog-powerslam combination that I'd never seen before. Holy cow!
Winner: Lio Rush.
2. Caprice Coleman & Will Ferrara vs. Silas Young and Beer City Bruiser.
Bruiser lost to Ferrara in last year's top prospect tournament, so there's some history here. Ferrara & Coleman still aren't exactly on the same page, though Prince Nana would like you to think otherwise. His "Age of Enlightenment" only means a revival of the Embassy, IMPO. Just when it looked like the Wisconsin contingent would win, along come the Boys to get Young's attention, leaving Bruiser all alone to eat a Sky Splitter from Coleman.
Winners: Caprice Coleman & Will Ferrara.
The winners "shake hands", although Ferrara's not completely with the program yet.
B. J. Whitmer and Adam Page are out. More yammering from Whitmer, whose act has gone past stale and close to X-Pac-level heat. Steve Corino returns, but only goes as far as the stage. In a quick jump cut after comments from Corino, Page turns on Whitmer, setting off a pull-apart brawl. Pencil these two (Page vs. Whitmer) for Vegas on the 26th.
Also in Las Vegas, newly crowned IWGP Intercontinental champion Kenny Omega will team with the Young Bucks to face Matt Sydal, ACH, & Kushida.
3. Mark Briscoe vs. Tim Hughes.
Squashola. Hughes has been teaming & training with Bob Evans lately, and it seems Brutal Bob told him not to shake hands. Hughes' 1st TV match, and he gets the dreaded jobber entrance. Almost no offense at all. Mark finishes him with a fisherman buster and Froggy-Bow.
Winner: Mark Briscoe.
4. The Young Bucks vs. ACH & Matt Sydal.
Kevin points out that Sydal & ACH already have beaten the Bucks once, and the storyline of this match suggested a receipt was in order, as every time ACH and/or Sydal was on offense, the Bucks would cut him off. Too much posturing from the Bucks, playing the heel roles they work so well in Japan. Hard to believe it'll be 20 years come June since the NWO introduced the "Too Sweet"/Wolfpac hand gesture into the mainstream. The kids eat it up, though, just the same. More Bang For Your Buck was blocked, and that led to ACH hitting Coup de Grace on Matt, who then was pinned after the Shooting Star Press.
Winners: ACH & Matt Sydal.
