Jacobs tried to make the save, but was beat down. Steen returned through the crowd to make the save.

Corino received medical attention in the ring, and we go to intermission

    Hopefully Davey gets a good reign.

    Out of everything on the card, my focus was on the Corino/Jacobs/ Steen angle. IMO it didn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to see how they build the Corino storyline up more.
