AJ Styles is asked about the secret Kaz and Daniels have on him. He says he is going to focus on his match with Angle.
Crimson makes his way out to the ring, but Bully Ray attacks Morgan on the ramp. Ray uses a chain and a chair to bust open Morgan. Matt Morgan is taken out on a stretcher, as Ray threatens Aries. Crimson says to make a ten count on Morgan, who was supposed to be his opponent. Morgan technically loses, and Crimson says it is another sad note in Morgan's career. This is a good way to write off Matt Morgan from TV while making Ray look intense. It also gives quick heat to someone like Crimson. With Morgan's contract expiring, this seems to be the last days of Morgan.
Austin Aries def. Zema Ion:
What I Liked:
Ion connects with a gorgeous somersault dive onto Aries. This picks up the pace in the match, one that will be fast and athletic. I liked how Ion was in control for the beginning stages of the match, including a jawbreaker to get a near pinfall. Aries comes back like he usually does, hitting a suicide dive which was a great transition into a backbreaker. The finish was a missle dropkick, followed by a Brainbuster for the win. Great all around work in the ring by these two X Division stars.
What I Disliked:
I felt we needed to see a little more aggression from Aries, especially because of what Bully Ray did prior to this match. Other than that, well done to give Aries some steam heading into his match with Ray at Sacrifice.
