Hangman and EVIL have been doing yeoman's work in the A Block midcard.
Hangman/Switchblade was leaps and bounds better than their SSE match just a few months ago. It was still probably too nutty for it's own good (Hangman takes no less than THREE apron bumps), but it all held together more coherently, and White is more established in his heel role and Page's babyface work is coming on strong and...yeah, this all worked. Except for another predictable screwjob finish. Why they think White needs to cheat to beat Page is beyond me. At the very least they could've mixed it up and had White brain Page with his own boot, as opposed to the beyond-stale low blow.
I still maintain that EVIL is significantly better than SANADA, just not as flashy or handsome and significantly more weird, and thus not as obvious a candidate for a main event push. He is one of the best sellers on the roster, both in obvious ways (for a tough guy character, he has no problem absolutely howling in anguish) and those more subtle, like here against Suzuki, where he pulls his forearm shots during the big strike exchange to sell that he doesn't have the same power due to his arm injury. He still gives the crowd the chance to chant along without betraying the story of the match. I thought these two had a fun, short brawl in last year's tournament, and this match expanded on that nicely. They probably have a really good 20-minute NEVER title match in their future.
