After the match, Lenny Leonard asks Quackenbush how he’s holding up after his first match back after his back surgery. Quackenbush says he’s only going to get better, and that tag matches are his science. He says they’ll up to ante on March 13th at EVOLVE 2 with a four corner elimination tag match.
