Winners: The Natural Nightmares
Very solid stuff in that match there, relatively easy win for QT and Dustin. There is something to be said for the pure focus on the ring work that people have right now, with no crowd to play to. And I dare say they seem way less likely to get rattled or over-excited in general. So these shows at the very least have that going for them. Just some good meat and potatoes work, really.
