Report by Justin James, PWTorch contributor
Alex Riley is back in the color commentary slot this week.
1 - ZACK RYDER vs. WADE BARRETT
They wrangle a bit and Barrett forces some respect from Ryder. They trade control early on. Barrett uses a rope-break to take a cheap shot to get a definitive advantage. Riley compares Ryder to Elvis and Eminem just as Ryder gains some momentum. Ryder in control headed to break.
[ Commercial Break ]
Barrett with some nasty offense, then Ryder with a sudden faceplant to get some separation. Ryder wants the Broski Boot, but Barrett counters with a quick back drop in the corner to the outside, but Ryder lands on the apron and drops Barrett's face into the ropes. Ryder comes back with a cover for two. Barrett ducks under the Rough Ryder and lands a big knee to the face. Bullhammer ends it.
WINNER: Wade Barrett in 9:00. Good match, but what does it mean for Wade Barrett to go nine minutes against Zack Ryder? Is Ryder getting another shot to climb to the top, is Barrett on someone's list, or did they just need to fill nine minutes with a decent match that they assume no one saw?
2 - NATALYA (w/Eva Marie) vs. NAOMI (w/Cameron)
Pre-match, Alex Riley mentions Natalya's recent marriage to Tyson Kidd.
Natalya with a quick headlock takedown, but Naomi easily slips out and delivers one of her own. Natalya runs the ropes until Naomi uses the Rear View to knock her down. Natalya wants a Sharpshooter, but Naomi slips out. Natalya with a delayed vertical suplex, then she gets sent to the ringside and she takes a breather.
Natalya offers a handshake upon return, but Naomi uses it to sucker her with a schoolgirl for a nearfall. The trade suplex attempts and both slip out. Natalya locks in the Sharpshooter and Naomi almost gets to the ropes before Natalya drags her back to the center for a submission win.
WINNER: Natalya in 5:00. Some good moments for Natalya and Naomi here. Naomi is so athletic and Natalya is a skilled veteran.
