Final Thoughts

Forget the rankings I guess? It doesn’t matter that literally none of these guys are in the Top 5, because people love tournaments! Omega vs. Hangman is the finals that people are expecting, myself included, but there are a lot of fun matchups along the way and plenty of opportunities to give some of these guys a credibility boost. My predicted winners are Omega, Page, Pentagon Jr., and Jungle Boy, and Pentagon Jr. vs. Rey Fenix is the match I am most looking forward to.

We also have a four-way tag match to determine who will face FTR for the championships at Full Gear. This match also ignores the rankings but is somewhat better as half of the participating teams are in the Top 5. Hopefully the Young Bucks come out on top tonight and we get to the pay off to their long-simmering, cross-promotion rivalry with FTR.

And last but not least, Le Dinner Debonair should provide some much-needed comedic relief from the minor gripes and annoyances I have with the rest of the card. I’ve been a huge Jericho fan since I was 10 years old and it excites me to see him elevating new stars for kids to look up to and to hate. I think his feud with Orange Cassidy did a lot to elevate him, long-term, and I hope he’s able to give MJF a boost that sends him rocketing to the top.
