Remember the days when Shawn Michaels’ Sweet Chin Music
superkick ended matches?
While we’ve seen a proliferation of superkicks in WWE in the
years since Michaels retired (the Usos probably being the most prolific), when
you’re using a half-dozen superkicks in a match, it’s not a good sign. Anthony
Greene went to the superkick well a bunch in the opening match against Josh
Briggs, with his opponent popping back up seconds later and continuing like it
While the match itself was fine, seeing wrestlers shrug off moves
that were finishers as little more than a punch is still a bit jarring and what
some call “indy-riffic.”
At the same time, hey, this was an all-action match, so you
can’t complain there. But we’ll note a small “down” here nonetheless.
