Four Way Freestyle
Chuck Taylor vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Emil Sitoci vs. Brandon Gatson - **
Nothing special, just a bunch of moves. I'd like to see more from Gatson though.
Bad Bones vs. Sami Callihan - **1/2
Total slugfest from start to finish. Kinda reminded me of a Roddy/Davey match but nowhere near as good. Sami's hugely over with the crowd.
Brodie Lee & Big van Walter vs. Johnny Moss & Michael Elgin - ***1/2
Holy shit balls. If there's any Elgin doubters out there, you ned to watch this match. Guy looked like a total stud in this one. From putting both Lee & Walter on his shoulders and Samoan dropping them both to hitting a corkscrew plancha on the outside, he just did it all. Pretty awesome display from 4 powerhouses.
Karsten Beck vs. Necro Butcher - *1/2
Idk who the fuck Karsten Beck is but everyoine wanted him to die.
Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly vs. LDRS of the New School (Zack Sabre Jr. & Marty Scurll) - ****1/4
It was really weird to see Cole & O'Reilly be the heels for once and not the underdog team, but god damn did they still impress. This was an excellent tag match and my first time seeing the LDRS. They're equally as impressive and quite the formidable team. Lots of nice tag moves and crazy stiffness throughout. The flash pin to end was totally out of nowhere and with a more livelier crowd, this would be even better.
wXw Unified World Wrestling Championship
Daisuke Sekimoto(c) vs. Chris Hero - ****
A well wrestled and ridiculously stiff match, but it's not for everyone. It went for nearly 30 minutes I'd say and it was a very slow, methodical pace. Sekimoto is an absolute beast and Hero's fighting spirit moments were really awesome as well. Check it out if you don't mind a slower pace.
No Ropes Barbed Wire Deathmatch
Jun Kasai vs. Drake Younger - NR
If you like deathmatches, then I guess you'll like this. I don't really rate deathmatches because idk how that's really possible. Your usual hardcore stuff highlighted by two superplexes off the top of a ladder through a barbed wire board and a crazy dive off the ladder by Jun Kasai.
Really everything that I thought would deliver, did. Two ****+ matches makes my $15 well worth it. Oh and at intermission, they showed a match from wXw Ambition. Bryan Danielson vs. Johnny Moss. That was pretty cool as well.
