Best: YAH! YAH! YAH! Is The New YES! YES! YES!

This week’s opening match is another one of those throwaway “Ascension mauls local talent” matches, complete with the announce team throwing the American Pitbulls under the bus. It also featured another pairing of NXT jobbers with ridiculously-specific commonplace names. According to dirt sheets, they’re “Mike Quiary and John Ikarino.” That’s what it sounds like, but f*ck me trying to find the correct spelling. Jobbers need onscreen introduction graphics too!
