  • Finn Balor watches a highlight package for Ilja Dragunov ahead of their match at World’s Collide. If you come at Finn, you best not miss is the wisdom that he wishes to impart cause he’s obviously been watching his The Wire boxsets.

ILJA DRAGUNOV VS JOSH MORELL

Dragunov makes short work of Morell with some crisp as fuck looking strikes and the Torpedo Moscow.

*****1/4
  • Dragunov tries to address Finn Balor, but is interrupted by Joe Coffey. Once Dragunov is down with Finn Balor, then Joe Coffey wants himself a piece at a later doubt. Dragunov seems down with the idea.

THE BRIAN KENDRICK VS TRAVIS BANKS

Kendrick works over the fingers like the dastardly veteran that he is. He suplexes Banks on the outside and then drags him further away from the ring so he’ll struggle to make the 10 count. He makes it. Kendrick hits Sliced Bread #2 and Banks kicks out. Banks makes the comeback, hits a kiwi crusher for win and books himself a place in the 4 way Cruiserweight title match at World’s Collide.
