[honorable mention]It was an extra nostalgic & festive holiday season as fanbase returned to hammerSTEEN ballroom after 21/2 yrs!(extra pricey ga tickets & security removing gum-markers-etc gave temporary trump-style environment) Mandy Leon reflected new york standard in ravishing black dress while Larry Legend brought the party in shiny red jacket! Curious post-intro Steve Corino chant:IS he about to leave for WWE?? "Will-Burger" is becoming fine team while Tempura did respectable work. Coleman was very unstable in mostly effective fashion while Dijak was versatile standout.(sad he closed strong year by making team lose) Young scored historic upset in career best level! Expected better from cabana-castle "feud" as it was surprisingly underwhelming. Lethal-Rhodes ALMOST was sleeper standout if not for last minute dirty play. New Trio Title had rough start between absent belt presentation & mostly rookie heel team.(why was Kushida holding jr world belt again?) Sadly absent Fish didn't subtract from very strong television bout. Scurll was classy leadership,Ospreay was spirited spontaniety & Lee very impressive in northeast debut. Bucks/Briscoe's 5th clash virtually stole the show!! "YOU DESERVE IT!" pop added icing to O'Reilly's victory cake after very emotional main event with multi-brand arch rival Cole. Let the reign of the "HYBRID HEART" begin! The 2107 question facing brand now:IS the bullet club feud over or will certain members put a target on all the champion's backs...? Grade B
