Yes! Hell of a brutal match. However, Nigel McGuiness is a terrible commentator. His awful screaming everything he says style of commentary almost took me out of the great match taking place.

Not to go down that road but Nigel is good. It's him learning and leaning on the WWE way of commentating that is hurting him now. He used to be great in ROH and early NXT. He still isn't bad, just stripped down.

Andy Shepherd on the other hand....if he says "OH MY WORD!" after a big move one more time i swear....use it here or there but mix it up man. There are so many things you can say to react to something and put it over.

Lol I don’t believe you. He screamed: “OH MY GOD!!!!! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE!!!!!” after a lariat. Nigel McGuinness said that. After a lariat. The dude who threw so many strong style lariats that he nearly ripped his own arm off. He was so bad it nearly ruined the match for me. He needs to tone it down big time.

To be fair...how many times have we heard a wwe commentator, or really any of them say "i've never seen a ____ like this before!" when we know very much so they have. It is a way too common thing up there with FIRST TIME EVER!!!!11!!!1

But I agree in that instance he seems dumb to us and needs to scale back. I just dont see it happening. If there was one thing about Nigel on commentary I don't like, he is always saying "THIS IS IT!" right before a pinfall. So the wwe has changed him into their mold of a commentator, and it sucks.

I’ll chime in with this - I remember at one point in the match hearing Nigel say he’s never seen a match this hard hitting and I thought to myself Nigel has BEEN IN matches this hard hitting. Wtf?!

That stood out to me too. He had several matches much more hard hitting with Takeshi Morishima alone. He and American Dragon Bryan Danielson (man I miss calling Daniel Bryan that) brutalized one another much worse than that so many times. It’s like wwe thinks we as fans are stupid and for me it’s just too hard to support someone/something with such obvious disdain for the people who pay them.

That's a big YES for me as well. They beat the fuck out of each other and it was great!

Also, gonna nominate The Young Bucks vs FTR and Kenny Omega vs Hangman Adam Page from AEW Full Gear 2020. The former may be one of the best tag-team matches I've seen in years.
