What caught our eye?

A better look at Estrella, who looks to be getting a push that will likely continue seeing as reviews of her appearances have been positive:

In the aftermath of Florida’s main event, the heels went for the beatdown, so Lun ran back in to even the odds and give us this final image...

Pretty cool... even if it makes me feel old:

I bet Sasha and Bayley were bummed they couldn’t be there. Darn PPVs getting in the way of fangirling for their favorite referee...

Otherwise, the pentultimate stop for the Cali tour seemed fun, but uneventful - especially after San Jose and Dusty Classic stuff which went down there.

Roderick Strong was reportedly really over and his win in the opener got match of the night mentions. Joe tried to attack the champ after the main, but Dillinger ran out to even the odds and let the faces stand tall.

But there wasn’t a ton of photos or videos of any of that, lending credence to reports it wasn’t a packed house. Also no word on why the card changed from the poster to the results you see above.

Paul Ellering and TM61 were both Tweeting before the show hyping their appearances, so...

What's next?

Going head-to-head with Hell in a Cell (well, the end of it, anyway) from Hollywood.
