You’ve got a mistake in your write-up, Grant. Match #4 says Cowboy Bob Orton d. Mr. Perfect with a SUPERPLEX, but then you’ve got the description written up as a match between the Dream Team and the Midnight Express. Was there supposed to have been an extra match on the card, bringing it to 10 matches total?
Thanks David! Yes, just a formatting error. Appreciate the heads up.
