4. Superkick Party
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 was nothing.
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.
