T-Bar def. Drew Gulak
T-Bar and Mace were split up in the Draft two weeks ago, yet they teamed together last week on Main Event and beat The Viking Raiders. If the new rosters don't go into effect until after Crown Jewel, why wouldn't they continue to team until then or at least come out to the ring together? It's not a major complaint, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Thus, T-Bar flew solo here, though I really wish he'll go back to being Dominik Dijackovic (or some variation of that name) and ditch the dumb face paint. This was a fairly basic bout with T-Bar on offense throughout.
#AskGSM is a weekly Q&A video where I, Graham "GSM" Matthews, answer fan questions from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in regards to the world of wrestling. Nothing is off limits, and this week's edition touches upon a variety of topics including:
NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa def. Joe Gacy (Non-Title)
Had Gacy won this match, he would have been added to the NXT Championship match between Ciampa and Bron Breakker at Halloween Havoc. Thankfully, that didn't happen. They had a fairly competitive match and Gacy looked good in defeat. His gimmick is incredibly cringeworthy, but the guy can hold his own in the ring. The creepy bald dude that attacked Ciampa afterward was Parker Bordeaux, who I've heard plenty of praise for dating back to when WWE signed him earlier this year.
Shawn Dean def. Andrew Lockhart
There was a Lockhart on last week's edition of Dark, but that was Erik Lockhart. This was his brother Andrew, so I got the two confused. In fact, Andrew was in action against The Creed Brothers on last week's episode of WWE 205 Live. I've been impressed with Dean in the past and I'm honestly surprised AEW hasn't done more with him as a wrestler, but I guess he's more of a backstage guy. This was a nice little outing and I wouldn't have minded it going a little longer.
