    Not the first time it’s played out like this (especially with Davey & Devitt), at the very least it either builds up intrigue or sets up Davey for an epic fail the rest of the way (like what happened with Hero & Claudio in the NOAH Tag League recently-they beat the champs in the first match then plummeted).
