KaijuFan’s Stoned Review
PWG – Kurt RussellMania
I decided to watch KR before continuing my way through the 09 year of PWG because I just watched Mania and figured it’d be a good continuation. Let’s spark up and get into it.
Awesome introduction to start the show. Excalibur with his unrelenting wit and an awesome stoned segway by London.
The Cutler Bros, Ryan Taylor and Christina Von Eerie (<3) vs Malachi Jackson, Johnny Goodtime, Gary Fuckin’ Coleman and Candice LaRae:
*** ½ ( you can add a star for Christina if you want)
Von Eerie with Dat Ass. Honestly, the heels raping LaRae for a good majority was epic. Props to Candice letting herself get beat for the heels to get legit heat. Everyone did great, and Malachi was kept to a minimum of three or four moves the entire time. Two stars just for CVE, and another star for everyone involved.
Brandon Bonham vs Brandon Gatson:
I fucking love Excalibur, who else would make a Gymkata reference? First time seeing Bonham and wow that was a big hit I took. Anyway, Bonham was good and Gatson provided his share of the goods.
Excalibur has once again become the most amazing man to ever grace the professional wrestling industry.
Human Tornado vs Super Crazy:
Really cool to see Super Crazy wrestle again, and allowed to be more than a comedy shtick. Tornado was able to gel well with a lucha themed match and they have a nice little thing out of it.
‘Ol DR vs Kevin Steen:
This match was designed to show the common affirmation of all that is good in the state of professional wrestling. This was going to be a spectacle that encompassed the entire industry. One match, representing all those that have been broken and beat by the business. One match, representing all those that have flourished and rich from the business. This was everything we ever imagined our sport to be. Entertaining, engaging, serious, comical, and degrading. For the fact there was comedy did not take away the serious selling Steen gave us for his arm, which did in fact lead to the finish. For ever Great Khali vs Koslov match there’s a Davey Richards vs Kevin Steen. For every time we have to see Hornswoggle tarnish Chavo Guerrero, we can see Davey Richards play a drum set.
This my friends, is what wrestling is.
The Great Muta and KAI vs Scott Lost and Joey Ryan:
Joey Ryan looked petrified of working against either of Muta or KAI, it honestly disappointed me. I was expecting some Joey shenanigans only to get fucked up by Muta. Oh well. Another hit should pick me back up.
El Generico vs Jushin “Thunder” Liger:
Really great match and Excalibur once again to be a devious mother fucker. The first half was a bit slow though.
Paul London and Brian Kendrick vs The Young Bucks:
Great stuff, there were botches but they really didn’t take anything away from it.
Chris Hero vs Rob Van Dam vs Roderick Strong:
RVD shown he can still perform, though it was noticeable when Roddy and Hero were fighting for RVD to catch a breather.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
I don't know what you're talking about. The ending of Wolves vs. Danielson/Black was perfect. Black, who had never applied Cattle Mutilation before, couldn't keep the hold cinched in well enough for the lesser of the Wolves to tap, realized it, said "fuck it", got him up into God's Last Gift as fast as he could, but was just a couple seconds too late.
The match showed that the united Wolves were able to just barely keep their tag belts against a makeshift team of two guys who were probably better singles wrestlers than both. When Black went through the table, Danielson didn't freak out or show any concern for his partner, he just kept going like it was a singles match, which led to his knee getting decimated (which he did a beautiful job of selling by the way). And then you had Richards getting increasingly frustrated with the faces kicking out, which of course they would do because they're the better singles wrestlers. Richards wasn't happy with a draw, he wanted to win and prove how dominant the Wolves were. Everybody did a fantastic job in their role, the storytelling and selling were brilliant, and literally everything clicked.
Matches like that one are why I love wrestling.
