Calling this game a low sounded harsh, but that didn’t mean it was bad. It was a perfectly perfect match.
Even the biggest hiccup – Santos Escobar’s dull shoulder breaker – was offset by a big hurricane from Isaiah “Swerve” Scott.
But the reason this is a low point is that it hasn’t really served a purpose. Escobar held Scott before and just did it again here.
Outside of establishing Ashante “Thee” Adonis as a definitive babyface to move forward, rather than having him come and go like a tweener, nothing has changed with this situation.
If Scott had won the title, it would have justified returning to this pit. Since he didn’t, it was just a repeat of what we’ve seen before.
What it boiled down to was just another rerun – something WWE has gotten far too comfortable doing this year – where two people fought again over time to eat up and not do something different. .
Hopefully Escobar has a new challenger coming and Scott will move on, as both are very talented and deserve not to keep spinning the wheels stuck in this feud that won’t go anywhere else.
If that’s the worst part of the map, you know it was a good show.
