Van Andel Arena – Grand Rapids, MI – Thursday, February 14, 2019
Byron Saxton, Percy Watson, and Renee Young are on commentary.
Heavy Machinery (Otis & Tucker) defeat The Ascension (Konnor & Viktor). These are two big bruiser teams, and Heavy Machinery is already up 1-0 in their series, having scored a victory over The Ascension on Monday Night RAW just before the Royal Rumble. They do the tag team formula thing – good guys control to start, bad guys cut them off and isolate one member of the opposing team, in this case, Tucker. Of course, Otis gets the hot tag and he cleans house. Steaks and weights rule the day, as Heavy Machinery traps Viktor in the Compactor to get the pin. Solid little tag match here, and Heavy Machinery is a delight.
The B-Team (Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas) & Tyler Breeze defeat Jinder Mahal & The Singh Brothers (Samir Singh & Sunil Singh) in a six-man tag team match. The good guys control the early going, and we take a commercial break. When we come back it looks like the bad guys have been in control and Dallas is the face-in-peril. Axel gets the hot tag and cleans house. Mahal cuts Axel off and his trio is quickly back in control. The match breaks down and the referee loses control. In the end, Breeze hits Samir with the Beauty Shot to get the pin. I enjoy Tyler Breeze and the B-Team. Fine little match here.
Some fun tag team fluff on this episode. Give me Heavy Machinery and Tyler Breeze on the show and no complaints.
