After the match is called off we see multiple EMTs, Vince, Jerry, and Pat tending to him and trying to give him oxygen to close the show.
Due to the way the show ended I don’t feel right in grading it. I will say though that the show was great and flew by as RAW has been picking up steam the past few weeks. This is also the first time that I find myself have any interest in Diesel whatsoever.
