Without any further ado, let’s go to Alan with the live coverage under the cut!

There MIGHT be an extra Playoff bout tonight. Jimmy Jacobs, Chuck Taylor, & Johnny Gargano are all tied at 4-2. If any combination of Taylor, Jacobs and Gargano are tied after their matches, an impromptu bout will be added to tonight’s card with all the “Wins Leaders” in Evolve. It could be either a singles or three-way match but either way, it’ll be sudden death (first pinfall wins).

-Alan here now! Show hasn’t started yet. It’s officially Wednesday here, but no fear, I’ve had my nap and I’m ready to go!

-We’re off! LARRY LEGEND!

Shiima vs. Jimmy is the opener. Fun match so far.

-Shiima gets the rollup win out of nowhere. Jimmy Jacobs SPOILED! Promo time with Larry Legend – Shiima offers Jimmy napkins to wipe away his tears. Nobody will top Xion’s gear tonight by the way.

Tony Nese vs. Silas Young about to get under way.

-Good match so far. Very fast pace. Naylor and Aries are awesome on commentary.

-Silas wins with his handstand moonsault. Another short match. Nese impressed. Silas promo about his recovery from addiction while Larry Dallas trolls him from the crowd.

Johnny Gargano vs. Jon Davis

Power vs. Speed battle so far. Solid stuff.

– Davis with the mother of all spinebusters!!! This match rules. Great finishing stretch. Gargano held on to the GargaNo Escape as Davis tried to slam him, and wins via submission.

-Promo time: Dissension in Team Dallas. (The Larry Dallas Cowboys?)

-Facade & Gory vs. Jigsaw & Frightmare

-Exactly the kind of fast paced action you’d expect so far.

-INSANITY down the stretch.  Could barely keep up. Jig gets the pin after a harsh Jigatonic.

-Sami vs. Zack!!!!!

-THIS IS NUTS! The match is taking place all over the building. Minoru Special vs. Stretch Muffler battle ON THE STAGE. Naylor losing his mind. Sami DESTROYS Zack with an exploder on the floor.

-these two are killing each other

-Sami wins with the Muffler and kicks to the head. Incredible match. Must see!

-Intermission time: Sweeney vs. Sal Rinauro match being shown on the stream. Lovely touch.

We’re back. Total babyface promo from Jon Davis. It got over.

-A.R. Fox vs. Rich Swann up now! I predict high flying.

Swann is on fiiiiiire!!!!

and now Fox is on fiiiiiire!!! This match is really coming together well.

-Fox wins the the single coolest new move I’ve seen in years. An Arabian Press One Man Spanish Fly?

Tozawa vs. Chucky T!!! I’m ready.

-That match kicked my ass! Awesome stuff. Back and forth throughout. Loads of big moves. Chuck wins with one of the sickest Awful Waffles ever.

-Larry Dallas doesn’t want the Cowboys to fight.

Gargano vs. Chuck

-Chuck doesn’t wanna wait. This thing is off and running!

-Match lasts about 2 minutes. Reby throws in the towel while Gargano has Chuck in his hold. Gargano is our wins leader.

Moxley vs. Aries is our main event

Suplex to the outside and both guys are selling being dead.

Moxley wants to use a wrench but thinks better of it. Trading Last Chancerys.

Aries wins. Bulldog/Bret Summerslam 92 finish. Good match, told a nice story. Mox survived tons before losing to a simple counter.

-Moxley gets a nice goodbye speech. Sabre, Fox, Swann, Jig and Sami come out for it.

And we are done! Very fun show. Definitely worth a gander.

Thanks for joining us, I’m off to mo leaba as we say in Ireland! Night lads and lasses!!!
