(Aired 3/31/16)

Last Exit To WrestleMania

– The AJ Styles-Heath Slater match was started with a pre-match Social Outcasts promo that expressed their desire to win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royale and picked on Styles. The match itself was squash material as Styles overcame the extra-man advantage and pele kicked Adam Rose off the apron and then hit the Phenomenal Forearm for a pretty victory.

– The Jey Uso-D-Von Dudley match provided loose go-home hype for their WrestleMania tag team encounter. The action was back-and-forth but the RDS (Ron Damn Simmons) Spinebuster was the finish as D-Von won despite Jimmy laying out Bubba on the outside. We assumed that meant the Usos probably win at Mania.

– The Dean Ambrose-Erick Rowan match was last-minute hype to push Ambrose’s desire to go hardcore with the beast incarnate, Brock Lesnar at Mania. He showed resiliency through his selling (a lot to ask for here) but the story was clear. It was entertaining, but immensely predictable. As you’d expect, Ambrose won with Dirty Deeds.
