AEW Dynamite Review - May 31, 2023
Blackpool Combat Club (Wheeler Yuta, Jon Moxley and ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli) def. Bandido and ROH World Tag Team Champions The Lucha Brothers
Bandido and Lucha Brothers interacted in the 21-man Blackjack Battle Royale at Double or Nothing and that was how their alliance came to win. Blackpool Combat Club winning coming off their Anarchy in the Arena victory at Double or Nothing was a given, but the babyfaces gave them quite the fight and it was an enjoyable opener. Yuta scoring the win for his team yet again after pinning Kenny Omega at Double or Nothing was a nice touch.

NWA Powerrr Review - May 30, 2023
NWA United States Tag Team Champions The Country Gentlemen vs. Knox and Murdoch Ended in a No Contest (Non-Title)
This was supposed to serve as a preview of what to expect in the Crockett Cup, though I wouldn't mind it being a feud over the tag titles coming out of the event. This didn't last long at all, but what we got was good. Chaos quickly ensued when other teams set to take part in the Crockett Cup came out and began brawling. It was a lively way to open the episode while that also hyped the tag team tournament.
WWE NXT Review - May 30, 2023
Gigi Dolin def. Jacy Jane in a Weaponized Steel Cage Match
This was easily the best bout these two have had and it's not even close because of how their previous encounters had to be cut short. The stipulation made sense with how long they've been feuding, and hopefully this marks the end because I'm beyond ready for both of them to move onto other opponents. This was good stuff, though. I still think these two would be better together than apart at this point, but we'll see where they go from here.
