The Elit VS Bryan Danielson, Christian Cage, Jungle Boy, and Luchasaurus
Jungle BOy and Nick Jackson start us off, very good transitions to start us off, followed by jump over arm drag and dropkick by Jungle boy taking brief control before Nick can tag in Adam Cole, jungle boy switches the momentum on Cole and tags in Christian Cage, who quickly hits some offense and tags Jungle Boy back in who in turn tags Christian Cage in as we get Luchasaurus chants emanating throughout the arena, Matt Jackson gets tagged in, while he is not able to take control, Jackson tags in Cole who takes control for the Super Elite and tags in Kenny Omega. Works the arm of Jungle boy and tags in Matt Jackson, Jungle boy showing spirit takes control counters to nick Jackson on the rope superkick while on the ropes to NIck and springboard arm drag to Matt Jackson.
Finally bringing in Bryan Danielson and pummels Matt Jackson with those roundhouse kicks to the chest, Danielson tags in Luchasaurus. He levels Matt with a vicious chop, backs him into to corner, and lays into him with his right hands. The faces have been in complete control of this match. Michael Nakazawa attacks Christian Cage and Luchasaurus goes toe to toe with Kenny Omega, as Christian is sprayed in the face and takes the indytaker on the floor. Jungle boy eats a superkick while checking on Christian and just like that the Super Elite seems to be in control as Christian is checked on by the doctors.
Focusing on Jungle boy Kenny gets the tag after shenanigans from cole and the bucks, ducks an enziguri attempt by jUngle Boy who fights off the snapdragon and responds with a hellacious lariat, but can’t tag out due to another distraction from Nakazawa.
Double DDT gives Jungle Boy the respite he needs as he tags in The American Dragon, and we are left with Danielson and Omega. Trading forearms in the middle of the ring these two were made to fight each other forever, backs Danielson into the corner counters bounces off the ropes, and delivers a stiff flying forearm flipping Kenny over, delivering the roundhouse to Kenny in the corner in short order.
Flying headbutt for Danielson gaining a near fall due to the Young Bucks breaking up the pinfall. Complete chaos snapdragon to Jungle Boy and double arm german transitioned into the submission but is broken up by Matt Jackson.
Luchasaurus makes his way in the ring for an extended period of time decimating the Elite in the process, Cole attempts the Panama sunrise and delivers that double chokeslam bomb onto cole and omega, then moonsaults onto the Bucks on the outside, mind you they are in control in a 3 on 4 situations, as Kenny flies over the top rope onto everyone, Cole taunting but Luchasaurus there to meet him in the ring followed by a chokeslam and the mesazoic moonsault. Low blow by Cole onto Luchasaurus, little slip up on the powerbomb spot on Luchasaurus, Jungle boy eats a snapdragon and a Panama Sunrise, as Bryan Danielson comes in breaks up the pin and starts tearing the Elite apart. Jungle boy eats a 4 man BTE trigger and gets pinned for the 3 count and the victory for the super-elite.
The grade is reflective of the 1 botch in the match and the fact that once again the Elite win, great match though but this is starting to get out of hand as far as no one is able to conquer the elite even in tag matches, booking them into a corner.

Starts off with Darby flying over and attacking the factory and getting a good shot on Camaroto before Camaroto takes control by h=sheer power and will and we go to picture in picture, Camaroto continues the brutal assault on Darby Allin throwing him around the ring with reckless abandon. However when he thinks he’s in control Darby dashes out of the way causing Camaroto to crash chest first into the turnbuckle. W return with Allin nailing a flipping stunner and the coffin drop and scoring the pinfall victory. Marshall comes in gives the diamond cutter to Sting who no-sells it and drops QT with the scorpion death drop
everything we’ve come to expect from a Darby match incredible toughness, but I would like to see one of these ends in a loss for Darby.

Puts Shida in the serenity lock forcing the tap and earning the victory keeping Shida at 49 wins, cracks a trophy over the head of Shida, and she is now a heel.
Grade A+ Fantastic wrestling match with many near falls and a lot of momentum shifts, character change feud started and so much more I can’t wait to see them go at it again.
