IWA:MS When Hero Met Punk


Simons Sezz vs. Shark Boy
**
So the ref was easily the best character in this match. For whatever reason he just seemed to hate Shark Boy and went out of his way to screw over Shark Boy. It was pretty funny to see actually. Stopping a count because Shark Boy's shoe was untied was pretty fantastic. The action itself was pretty decent but they should have picked someone that could be more of heel than Simon Sezz. Everything was executed really well so it made up for the fact that they didn't do anything all that crazy or original. Just a solid match.


Mean Mitch Page vs. "Mr. Fucking Charisma" Jimmy Jacobs

*1/2
Jimmy Jacobs cut an awesome promo and it was great to see him with such an absurd character. And CM Punk was the one that refereed to him as "Mr. Fucking Charisma" Jacobs was announced as the Bulging Behemoth from the Power House Gym and had such incredible offense as the Tornado Back Rake. The match itself wasn't very good wrestling wise but it was hilarious. Jimmy Jacobs was just pure entertainment and I found myself enjoying everything he did here.


Steve Stone vs. Alex Shelley

**1/4
Steve Stone did a really good job of coming across as this white trash asshole. I don't know exactly how much of it was acting but he did a good job of getting his heel character across to the fans and it just seemed really believable. There was some good offense and they kept a pretty quick pace for a little less than 6 minutes. Nothing spectacular but with a 90+ minute match on the card keeping things short makes sense. Good undercard match.


Adam Gooch vs. JC Bailey

*3/4
This really dragged. Gooch was somewhat amusing as a heel but it was a pretty generic gimmick that he had going and nothing that he did really stood out. I thought Bailey was just a death match worker but he did at least show that he can wrestle a decent wrestling match. Average is really the best word that comes to mind after watching this.


Danny Daniels vs. Drake Younger

**1/4
Kind of weird seeing Drake Younger without tons of scars and bad knees. The man appears to have aged about 15 years since this took place, and this match occurred in 2003. The match was pretty solid. I kind of liked how they had Younger trying to make a big impression in one of his first IWA:MS matches against more of a veteran in Danny Daniels. The action was solid and it went a good length, just around 12 minutes. Nothing mind blowing but it was still a pretty solid match.


Michael Todd Straton vs. Mark Wolf

**1/4
I actually liked this one a lot more than I expected. It was a brawl for the most part but they made me care which is a lot more then can be said for some of the other matches. They said Wolf had only been wrestling for 2 and a half years but I don't know if I can believe that. This really felt like it was two veterans in the ring together. Best match so far for what it's worth. It reminded me a lot of the small indy company that runs in my town, not the highest compliment that can be paid but an honest observation. They just went out and had a fundamentally sound match.


Michael Todd Straton vs. K.O.

*
Now this reminds of what's bad about the local company by me. The offense was overly basic and nothing really looked all that good. It dragged quite a bit too. They said numerous times that this was KO's third match and it really showed. There was a pretty dumb ending too.


IWA:MS Light Heavyweight Championship Match:

Simon Sezz vs. Nate Webb (c)
**1/2
I really don't know what the hell Nate Webb is but I liked him mostly because he was called "The Teenage Dirt Bag" and was overall just a funny guy to watch. The match was pretty entertaining too, just an easy watch after the last match dragged so much.


Ian Rotten and Corporal Robinson vs. 2 Tuff Tony and Bull Pain

*1/2
They punched each other a lot and broke a chair (which was pretty cool looking actually). And 2 of the guys in the match bled. Everyone seemed really angry too. I really don't have anything else to add about this match.


2 Out of 3 Falls for the IWA:MS Championship (90 Minute Time Limit)

CM Punk (c) vs. Chris Hero
****1/2
Damn, where do I start with this? I guess I should just go ahead and warn you guys that this match isn't for everyone. I loved it but that doesn't mean that everyone should go out and see it. The match picked up around the 50 minute mark, just saying that sounds insane. The beginning is what can only be described as a wrestling clinic. They did so much in there and it was great to see them go with a 5 to 10 minute sequence of holds off something as simple as a head scissors. For obvious reasons I can't really go through everything they did but I will say that it was really interesting to watch them just go hold for hold for almost an hour.

Punk got the first fall in what was just a brutal kick to the face after Hero ducked a Shining Wizard. The next 15 minutes were just fantastic as Hero got desperate to get a pin. You see he hadn't had much success against Punk and now he suddenly had to pin Punk twice in less than 40 minutes. Punk took everything that Hero had and it wasn't until Hero hit the Pepsi Plunge that he was able to score a fall on Punk.

Once things were tied at one this match got even more intense. Both guys just went all out and you could just feel all the raw emotion in the ring. It's simple amazing that they were able to kick it up a notch after they had been wrestling for over an hour. It looked like the match was going to end with a screwy double pin but the match was restarted and went to sudden death. After 3 more minutes of just some really emotional and hard hitting stuff Hero managed to get Punk to tap out.

I'll say it again that this won't be for everyone but I found the mat stuff early on fascinating and the last half was just pure awesomeness. I've never seen anything like this and I don't think I'll ever get the chance to see two guys that are this good wrestle for this long. As far as I'm concerned this is a classic.




So this is pretty much the definition of a one match card but what a match it was. I paid $15 for this DVD and despite a lackluster undercard I can honestly say that I got my money's worth. I mean I got Disc 1 which should make a perfect Frisbee and I got a fantastic 92 minute epic on disc 2.

So, does anybody know how to order from wXw? I see they are offering the shoot-style tourney they did "Ambition" on BluRay and was wanting to pick it up, but the whole site is in German (as expected).

Anybody got any tips on picking something up from them? Or a stateside place to order their shows from that would carry the BluRay?

Pretty much I had to open a translator and just wade through it. But they do use paypal and ship to the US and I got most of my orders in about a week. Smart Mark is the only place I know reliably sells shows but I think they're only selling the dvd version of Ambition. I'll probably get it from wXw since they're also selling Danielson's other show in a bundle.

I know Highspots have the DVD version of ambition on pre-order so it might be worth emailing them see if they're getting the BR in.

Oh damn, more companies need to start releasing their shows on Blu-Ray. I'd be all over those.
