Revisiting the match as part of his preparations for an upcoming Ultimate X event during a Twitch stream last year, Bailey couldn't help but marvel at the sheer ridiculousness of Elevation X. "It's completely absurd. A terrible idea," he chuckled, reflecting on the outlandish concept of the match.

Although Bailey had previously witnessed the spectacle, his rewatch only reaffirmed the ludicrous nature of the event.
