I can't really do ratings based on the matches as I didn't see them, but I will rate based on the match results.
Rating: 8/10 Overall, I like the sound of this match. I'm kinda glad that Dolph won cleanly, but at the same time I would've loved to see him get DQ'ed. Also, doesn't this sound like how their match the other night ended?
