Tien’s Backflip Doublekick thing earned this match a .25. That was one of the coolest maneuvers I’ve seen since I joined the M4gNation Universe. Tien is picking up momentum while Stigmata Jesus keeps sliding down the card. Jesus needs to eat his Wheaties or Matzah and regain some of those muscles and athleticism he had last year.
Symbiosis won the gauntlet and will again compete for the TMN Green Tag Team Title.
Good luck to them in their upcoming title shot!

Space Ghost fought for this win. It was truly a come-from-behind victory. I thought Captain Planet had it locked in, but Space Ghost nabbed this away from him. Both wrestlers put on a pretty good show – there were some really good spots in this match. Look no further than the final couple of minutes to see the grit and determination of these two wrestlers.

There were some really good spots, but the ending was somewhat anti-climactic. Maybe Nina has shoulders of steel and I’m underestimating her, or maybe Harley just ran out of gas. Either way, Harley put up a good fight but, in the end, it wasn’t good enough to beat the former Supernova Champion. There also is some controversy surrounding this match because Harley grabbed the rope on the final cover of the match. Let’s see how this saga continues in the upcoming weeks.
Zamasu (C) vs. Goku (Non-title Match)
No Contest (0/5)
Zamasu immediately says that he will not wrestle in a non-title match and will simply walk up the ramp and give Goku the W. True to his word, Zamasu leaves the match and makes his way backstage without any incidents.
This is strange, so hear me out. I’m giving the actual match a zero since no wrestling took place, but the promo gets a 5/5. Zamasu is playing a perfect heel. I can’t wait to see how his upcoming title defense will go. Who knows if he’ll have ring rust after taking multiple weeks off.

I guess Source Code and Raven are moving onto the finals. I wonder if Source Code will team up to take out Raven early on. Who knows how the team will survive the upcoming number one contender match. Misty, D. Va, and Jinx put up a decent fight, but it just wasn’t enough. I think the best spot was towards the end when Sombra kept hitting those Electric Chair Backbreakers onto Misty. Other than that, it was a formulaic 6-Man tag team match.
