Opinion: I thought this was a very fun match but the ending was clunky. The announce team seemed to miss Santana putting Ortiz’s hand on the ropes to break up the cover and sounded like they didn’t know what was going on. It was still a good match though and Chuck Taylor’s spot on top of the chairs was great.
