Some major pops for the evening came courtesy of Hammerstone who was major over with the crowd, Davey Richards got a great welcome back to wrestling from the Philly crowd, the surprise appearances of Dice and Meanie were also big. The Alex Kane and Budd Heavy bout really roped in the crowd as the debuting Kane looked strong against Heavy, who got a great reaction. The Willow Nightingale & Ashley Vox match, Calvin Tankman vs. Lee Moriarty and Davey Richards vs. TJP also were highly praised for the efforts put forth in the squared circle. Fatu and Cross put on a great back and forth World Championship match as well and Arais vs. Arez also received some big-time reactions.
As previously promoted, Cesar Duran was also on hand for the event, revealing further plans behind Azteca Underground and the 2300 crowd reacted to him greatly as he showed seamless ability in firing up the crowd. This was all the more further when Injustice expressed their interest in challenging for The World Tag Team Titles. Tom Lawlor and Kit Osborne got some good when when they took a 76ers/Ben Simmons dig at the Philly faithful.
