Read Kevin Ford’s take here.
Buy this match here.
Recap from TJ Hawke:
So, Shane Storm. What’s the deal? What’s the appeal? Why was he so prominent in the company for so long? Explain it to me. I wish to understand. He moves at what could charitably be described as a “sluggish” pace. He does not do anything in the ring that is particularly exciting or interesting. He seems kind of over but not at a level where you could forgive in-ring deficiencies. I just have never gotten him and likely never will.
Anyway, Hero was fun here, and the match was watchable because he worked on top. Storm was fine here by his standards, but that is an incredibly low bar to get over. This was not impressive, and I left it mostly just being grateful that Hero won (and that the match was over). Hero won after an elbow and pinning combo. (**1/4)
