Excalibur is really a wonder - good voice, clever phrasing, amplifies the in ring narratives.Now there's some good announcing. He didn't kick out because the finisher was weak, he just did some bullshit that meant he didn't take the full brunt.
Around the second barb-wire-board spot, was when I realised I was rooting for Janella. Not a fan of him or his work, (before that match, nor, would I see myself becoming one. Just not my deal or my style, which isn't a knock on him at all) - but when the much larger Moxley brutally tossed him onto that board, I found myself sympathising with this kid, I wanted him to win, I wanted him to get that moment. I could even justify it as good booking because it makes a star, though I know that's just adding logic to an emotion.not sure, but that got unpleasant to watch around about the time the second barb-wire-board came out.
I mean, I've enjoyed hardcore matches before but that went... a bit beyond my comfort zone.
