This should’ve been Rey & Juvi vs Kronik, but it was mis-labelled and I decided to watch it anyway. Jeremy Borash is making his debut on commentary, replacing Scott Hudson who had flown home to be with his pregnant wife. The ICP jump ‘the Animals’ just as Konan is wrapping up his catchphrases and they whip Rey and Juvi into each other. They try something similar again, but this time Rey backdrops Juvi over the top rope and he lands on the apron. Springboard dropkick to Shaggy 2 Dope and Rey with an Arabian moonsault on Violent J. Stereo pescados to the floors by ‘the Animals’. Juvi comes off the top turnbuckle with a plancha, but S2D catches him with a dropkick to the chest as he’s mid-air. A miscommunication sees J accidentally clobber his partner and ‘the Animals’ with their wheelbarrow bulldog/springboard leg drop to the back of the neck combination. ‘Air Juvi’ followed by the bronco buster. A lethargic looking clothesline by J to Rey, and a second clothesline sends Juvi over the top and to the outside. As he presses Rey overhead, Juvi takes down S2D and a springboard dropkick sees Rey then fall on top. ‘Nutcracker’ as Konan calls it (aka Rey’s top rope leg drop to the groin) and the Filthy Animals retain their tag belts.

 

Ideal way to open Nitro as Rey and Juvi continue to get strong reactions week in week out. The ICP aren’t good, but at least Shaggy 2 Dope looks to have some sort of idea, unlike Violent J who, gorilla press aside, is really bad. Match is kept short and the ICP’s offense to a minimum as Rey and Juvi pretty much run through them, busting out their double team and high flying moves along the way to please the crowd.
