This is a violent, satisfying culmination to the nine-month feud between Manning and Skyler. The pre-match video does a fine job summarizing their issues. I felt like I jumped right in and immediately had a good grasp of their rivalry despite no prior context. Both Manning and Skyler are among the best of an excellent crop of wrestlers in the Carolinas in the last 15 or so years. Manning is especially underrated. When I watch an I Quit match I expect violence and I got it, as both guys bleed like crazy and bring the pain to one another.

The biggest negative is the commentary. These two have never worked together, don't work well together, and their commentary is so jarring it honestly distracts from what’s happening in and around the ring. I would have preferred a live feed with no commentary track.

A good match that honestly would have ranked even more highly with me if the commentary had been better.

Here's a link to my full review, part of the 365 Wrestling project.
