Muta goes off the ropes, Emory goes for a monkey flip but Muta cartwheels to the side and delivers a dropkick.

Irish whip by Muta, leapfrog by Emory, Muta rolls under it but Emory clotheslines Muta out of the ring. Muta flips his way back in the ring however and hits a spinning back kick. Rib breaker by Muta, he goes up top and delivers the moonsault! Cover, and he picks up the three count. Your winner: Great Muta

Match Thoughts: Oddly I can't find a record of this match date-wise, but they mention Muta's match at Sting at the GAB on commentary as if it recently happened so I am assuming the match took place in early August. I hate to judge Emory based off of one match but he appears to be a muscle head with no actual wrestling ability - I don't think the botch was his fault with the roll-under per se but it was a noticeable awkward moment in such a short match. Not the best squash match, although it is always nice to see the moonsault. Score: 4.0
