03:35AM – How awesome is Trey Miguel!?

02:50AM – The North are very underrated. Shamrock and Callihan are fantastic. This tag team title match has been brilliant. Shamrock looked like he was going to fly over the top rope onto The North just a moment ago but stopped just in time but went crashing over the top rope!
