There were only two singles matches on this whole card and while they were both very good it was the ridiculous amount of tag matches that made this near impossible to watch. Okay the last match was okay because it had a different stipulation to it but that was not enough for me to honestly say I enjoyed this show. At least it was not as long as some of their shows have been in the past.
