Did he gave one good match or cut one good promo. MATCH #1: Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. The Super Smash Brothers. Steen and Player Dos start the match. Generico and Player Uno get tagged and it’s a battle of masked men. Steen is all over Dos, and along with Generico they double-team him in their half of the ring. Generico fights back with a chinbreaker and then tags Steen. Steen comes back using his power, catching Dos and using him to kick Uno down, and then hitting Dos with a backbreaker. Dos ducks a double clothesline and hits a simultaneous Pele Kick. He makes the tag and Uno is all over Generico.

Generico comes in with a running Yakuza kick on Uno and then a release German Suplex, and Dos is able to land on Generico at exactly the right time with a splash.

On its previous design, he says: "It looked like an old folks' home because my mother needed grab bars and ramps to help her get around. For the $150,000 overhaul - the price tag includes furniture - Mr Tang worked with Mr Ivan Ong, 40, from Ideal Design Interior to get the look.
