I guess it has been a long time since we had a FGA show, so maybe it's a breath of fresh air. I really enjoyed the show. I don't like breaking down whole shows anymore. I'll point out some of the high points that made me excited.
As always, the championship bouts really stuck out. They were fantastic, and they had the high stakes that they always deserve. In particular, the Cordy vs. ADL match had me on the edge of my seat.
Savannah vs. Page was probably the highlight. I'm a fan of just grisly ass matches like that. The brutality was on point, and I deeply enjoy the way that the commentary wavered and waned towards each party. It really sold just how gruesome of a match it was. Page also carries this great story that revolves around itself. Him being pushed to use the steps again was a great touch. Savannah cannot be outshined in this match either. I legit smirked when she hit the DNA Driver.
The way that the semi-finals and the finals of the Wildcard Lottery were the most dramatic events of the night to me. Seth Iser proved to be as crafty as they come, and it was nice to see him finally get his moment. Though, it'll be interesting to see which champion he'll charge against. They're both in top shape.
S&C are going to die at some point if they keep pushing buttons the way they're so good at. Without the singles action to focus on, I wonder how Pendragone will respond, along with the Hellcats.
Gods, Nina Stokes is going to lead a massacre at this point.
Ace Voltage getting the win over Chaz has gotten me more invested in the character as it really helped enrich his title reign.
The commentary has been on point for a long time, but the way that the two literally bicker throughout makes me laugh every time.
I'm glad there's another show, and I can't wait for more.

MAIN EVENT FGA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (c) Fujiko Mine vs. James Edwards
good match but not the best on the show, for the main event it was okay, Edwards has always been an underdog to me, I was rooting for him in this match, but it wasn't his night, the champ retains 3.5/5
