Brown is still one of the sloppiest workers in the business and his match here with Shannon Moore, was about what you would expect. Brown fumbled a Sky-High powerbomb and Moore did a rather non-chalant attempt at a corkscrew moonsault in a rather forgettable and anti-climactic match. Dutt and Hyson worked too slow of a pace for my liking and nothing really memorable stood out in the workrate department. Killings and Siaki had another mid-card encounter which featured interference from Moore for some unknown reason. The hardcore match between Abyss and Sabu wasn’t as great as their previous encounters on pay-per-view. Having Al Snow as the referee made for an interesting dynamic but it neither added more or subtracted anything from the match. Following the bout, Snow cut an incoherent promo on Sabu that left Brian and I scratching our heads and wondering what the hell he said.

The second half kicked off with a decent tag match between the James Gang and the Diamonds in the Rough. Once again, like many of the previous matches, there was nothing memorable were workrate was involved. Jarrett and Styles had their standard match but the finish was nothing but a total clusterfuck to make any sense of. The main event of Team 3-D and America’s Most Wanted was perhaps the longest match of the night, clocking in at just about twenty minutes or so. They did a Dusty finish to where Team 3-D looked like they won the belts, but the decision was reversed to give the belts back to the champions in a convoluted finish to a rather unmemorable DVD. The title menu of this DVD had D-Von holding a sign that said “WWE Sux” and after watching this, I realize that Vinnie Mac’s wrestling may not be so bad after all.
