The Unstable (Vin Gerard, STIGMA, and Colin Delaney) defeated The Cold Front (Al Snow, Glacier, and D’Lo Brown [took Iceberg’s place])

My thoughts:

I went 2 for 8 on my predictions. Not my best work, but it was entertaining none the less. The event was incredible to say the least. I feel like I almost have to break it down.

The F1rst Family vs Team Epic War

I liked the turmoil on Epic War between Drago and Aries. This was a great opening match not much else needs to be said.

The Osirian Portal vs Team PWG

Four words. I LOVE EL GENERICO. He stole the show, but the other wrestlers were able to keep up.

Team Uppercut vs The Roughnecks

This was one of the best matches of the night. Bryan Danielson’s antics in messing with Grizzly Redwood was sheer genius. Redwood was the whipping boy in the end as Claudio Castagnoli swung him in a circle a full 100 times , which the led to Danielson using the Cattle Mutilation for the victory.

Da Soul Touchaz vs Team CZW

The funniest match of the night. I only wish Team CZW advanced because their antics are absolutely priceless. Between that and big Willie flying over the top rope, I was in heaven.

F.I.S.T. vs The Death Match Kings

Necro Butcher is the definition of a man’s man. The Kings just beat up anyone they saw. The show down between Necro and Akuma was epic to say the least.

The Future is Now vs Team DDT

This was a good match. I didn’t care for how it ended but that was the worst part.

The Masters of a Thousand Holds vs Incoherence

This was one of my least favorite matches. The match was severely one sided and there wasn’t a point where Incoherence had anything close to control. In a more pressing note, Mike Quackenbush had a hard landing on concrete and did not look good from that point on. Hopefully, he is ok.

The Unstable vs The Cold Front

I was shocked when they said Iceberg couldn’t make it to the event. They announced replacements ranging from Leif Cassidy to The Amazing Red. Then D’Lo Brown came out and my heart sank into my stomach. I watched as two of my childhood heroes, D’Lo Brown and Al Snow, wrestled valiantly. The word “glorious” doesn’t even begin to explain it.

For those who are curious, The matches for tonight are as follows:

The F1rst Family vs F.I.S.T.

The Osirian Portal vs The Future is Now

Team Uppercut vs The Masters of a Thousand Holds

Da Soul Touchaz vs The Unstable
