It was a classic Heel vs. Face bout and the Face came out on top. Even with interferences and smack talking, 18 persevered and reclaimed the Super Nova title. Both wrestlers put on a good match and I think it told a pretty good story. I’m interested on how the Super Nova Division will change now.

Saitama hits a Superman Punch and goes for the pin, but Planet is there to break it up at two. Moon Knight wins it with a leaping elbow to Saitama’s forehead.
Great match with a somewhat anti-climatic ending. After all the finishers and signatures these four hit, a jumping elbow wins it. The Solar Society regains the titles. Maybe it was just a freak loss that gave the Five Knuckle Shufflers the belt. Again, it was a great match. How was Skeeter to know that a random elbow would win it? I can’t blame him for not running interference, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

I feel like Rock Me Sexy Jesus would have put up a better fight than Stigmata Jesus. This was a solid match overall. Yusuke and Zamasu looked incredibly strong, while Jesus was just a shadow of his former self. Maybe Jesus will have a heel turn after taking out Raditz.

I was going to give this a 5-star rating, but that botched flying stunner really pushed me away from it. Overall, it was a phenomenal match. Both wrestlers gave it their all. I honestly couldn’t tell who would win. At least Green will have a fighting champion, now.
