Report by Justin James, PWTorch contributor
1. TED DIBIASE vs. JTG
DiBiase comes out to a pretty decent welcome from the crowd for someone who has been off TV for a long time. He has a new look for his ring gear, lots of rifle scope reticles on it.
They stare each other down before DiBiase grabs JTG's ankle to take him down. JTG responds, but when he showboats to the crowd, DiBiase recovers and surprises him. DiBiase with a suicide dive, that's new to him. JTG goes on an offensive stretch. DiBiase's turnaround clotheslines gives him an edge. He's added a running high knee to his arsenal too. DiBiase with Dream Streets for the win.
WINNER: Ted DiBiase in 5:12. Serviceable match to help DiBiase get back on track. He needs new music desperately. He looked pretty good in the ring, and added a couple of new moves, though the suicide dive looks out of place on someone his size, and it's already heavily used by the current crop of former ROH recruits (C.M. Punk, Daniel Bryan, and Seth Rollins) already.
2 - DREW MCINTYRE vs. JINDER MAHAL
McIntyre is still fighting with a broken wrist. McIntyre immediately puts Mahal into the corner, then smugly invites him back into the center of the ring. The announcers are playing up McIntyre re-evaluating his career. McIntyre somehow leapfrogs Mahal, then unloads on him in the corner. Every time McIntyre tries to get traction, Mahal cuts him off. Big clothesline allows McIntyre to go on the attack. Future Shock DDT puts Mahal away. There are actually people in the crowd cheering for McIntyre, or they spliced in shots from a John Cena match.
WINNER: Drew McIntrye in 5:14. McIntyre is being repackaged as a face character. I am not sure how well that will work out, but I'm a fan of McIntyre's in-ring work.
3 - TYSON KIDD vs. DAVID OTUNGA
Otunga immediately overpowers Kidd, and poses for the crowd. Kidd takes a good measure of him and tries mat wrestling, but Otunga's muscles give him the upper hand. Kidd has to outsmart Otunga, which angers him. Otunga has some offense, but Kidd makes a comeback. Kidd walks into Otunga's uranage finisher for the loss.
WINNER: David Otunga in 3:24. I think the last time I saw David Otunga win a match, he was still in Nexus. But, in all half-seriousness, he was on a 12-match losing streak. Overall, the match never really got going.
4 - THE USOS vs. PRIME TIME PLAYERS - Tag Team match
Jey and Young start the match, after Young's pre-match grooming. Young immediately tries the gutbuster, but Jey slips out and The Usos double team him. The PTP's struggle against the Usos. The Prime Time Players get cleared from the ring, and there's a false commercial break.
Young is getting thrown around by Jimmy out of the break. A distraction from O'Neil lets Young break free and tag out. O'Neil demolishes Jimmy on the outside. They work him over in their corner. Jimmy uses a backdrop to get a double tag out. Jey with his hot tag sequence. O'Neil is forced to break up a tag. Jimmy and O'Neil brawl ringside as Jey lands a Samoan Drop on Young, then heads up top, but O'Neil yanks the ropes. Young springs back to life and knocks Jey to the turnbuckle. The Players hit their "Devastation Incorporated" team finisher for the win.
WINNERS: Players in 7:48. Good match, but I've become really bored with The Usos. Every single one of their matches is nearly identical, and the only difference is in the last thirty seconds. They have a lot of talent, but they need to work on changing up their match formula.
