The first three matches on the main show saw new champions being crowned in a surprising turn of events. This was followed by two not so good matches before the emotional main event.
After that, Ronda Rousey squashed Ruby Riott in disappointing fashion. All in all, this was a decently satisfying show, to say the least.
Here, an attempt is made to analyze every match by rating them on a scale of five-stars.
#1 Buddy Murphy (Champion) vs Akira Tozawa- Singles Match for the Cruiserweight Championship (Kickoff Show)
This match was excellent right from the very beginning. Commencing with a well-executed wristlock sequence, it developed into a fascinating fast pace contest.
The story of the match was Tozawa fearlessly throwing every high-risk move he can at Murphy, but, Murphy being the juggernaut is just strong enough to overcome it all.
It also made good use of the size difference of the two competitors with Murphy once catching Tozawa in mid-air while attempting a suicide dive and hitting a suplex.
He then hit him with a shoulder drop on his knee, pump up knee and a powerbomb in quick succession, but, Tozawa was able to survive.
Murphy barely survived a senton to the back before successfully putting Tozawa away with Murphy's Law. To summarize, this match was a perfect endorsement for the cruiserweight division.
