Jason Gorey told Michael Facade to stop chasing the TV Title. He said that Facade should channel his anger to accomplish more. Gorey said that the title is meaningless. They only need one more. Analysis: They were trying to give him a different vibe than Krimson by doing horizontal bars that were stretching the picture like an old 80’s TV. I wasn’t a big fan. I like the effort though. Gorey’s content needed something else. Maybe more of a reason to keep the belt away from Facade. More anger because Facade is being such a persistent do gooder. Score: 0.

Krimson came to ringside when they went to commercial. Jason Bane came out with Krimson standing in the ring with a chair.

Analysis: The decision of Matthew Justice took priority in the end. I hope they turn him heel. I’m fine and enjoy the middle ground for now. Well wrestled brawl. The power bomb gaffe was corrected quickly with the low blow. The chair remained as the only other bad thing in the match. Another baby face versus baby face title match doesn’t sound appetizing to me so I’m glad of the outcome. Score: +1.
Final Score: 5/7. Final Analysis: They keep on rolling out good episodes. Gregory Iron doesn’t get hurt much losing to Jacobs. He was also involved in a good match. Gorey was trying something to be different so I’ll give him the A for effort but the execution was poor. Facade delivered and that wasn’t something I was expecting. Even if the match between Mr. RBI & Dan Arkham didn’t do much for me, Aaron Maguire kept it interesting. Cross & Gargano kept their story lines going. The main event was a nice pairing of angles. I’m glad that Mason got physically involved because it does expose even more the multitude of baby faces. Aaron Draven is still floating out there on the same rung. A fantastic reason to turn Matthew Justice heel. -Kevin
