Jigsaw hits a superkick, Hallowicked hits a yakuza kick, and that’s enough for them to pin Lyndon at 6:39. The ending was a really cool sequence, but up until that point this wasn’t much. To me Aeroform are a hit or miss and team and tonight was a miss. Hallowicked and Jigsaw have done better before too. **

Cloudy hits Ophidian with an enzugiri, and Up In Smoke give Ophidian the Death By Knee for the pin at 11:43. This was better than the previous tag match, but it does help that these teams have met twice before in CHIKARA. I like what both teams have to offer, but EVOLVE needs a more solid tag division all together. I hope both these team get consistent spots on the roster. **3/4
