Match Thoughts: A good match, not great by any means but entertaining. When the match was announced I knew that Muta would be doing minimal, it was a mid-card tag team match with him teamed with a much younger wrestler, but he didn't appear to be phoning it in and aside from no moonsault (which was expected) he hit all his spots for the live crowd. I have only seen Ryan and Lost a few times, they seem fine although Lost certainly did the bulk of the work in this match. It was good experience for KAI, I always feel it is good for wrestlers to face a wide variety of styles as it can only improve their skills, and there weren't any signs of miscommunications during the match. Pretty simple, but a solid match with Muta invading PWG to pick up the win. Score: 6.0
