Kyle O'Reilly vs Marty Scurll vs Axeman vs Karsten Beck ***1/2
Man Marty's muisc is awful but it's soooo fucking brilliant as an entrance for a wrestling match.
Yoshihito Sasaki vs Carnage **
Colt Cabana vs Zack Sabre Jr. ***3/4
It was a comedy match of sorts but it had some amazing mat wrestling to go along with the comedy spots and it was probably one of the most fun matches on the Indies in a good few years.
Adam Cole vs Mark Haskins **1/2
Heel Cole looked even better than I thought. He needs to work heel in promotions that aren't shit. The similarities are Ziggy Sabodka are insane as a bayface in ROH but when he's a douchebag heel it's just uncanny.
Go Shiozaki vs Johnny Moss **3/4
Big Van Walter vs Rico Bushido Squash
Davey Richards vs Jon Ryan ***1/4
"HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOW BABY"
Sami Callihan vs Tommy End ***1/2
Sami's ridiculously over with the wXw crowd.
El Generico vs Kotaro Suzuki ***3/4
Daisuke Sekimoto vs Bad Bones - wXw Unified World Championship ***1/2
Sekimoto telling Moss "Tommorow night, I WILL BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF YOU" was the best thing ever. Closely followed by "Johnny Moss, I cannot understand english"
Overall: Really strong start to the tournament. 1st day is always gonna be seemingly weak but there's still loads of really good stuff on this show. Without spoiling it for anyone who's avoiding the results of it, they built to the final incredibly well on this first show. Also the wXw commentator is the best fucking commentator ever. Just loses his shit over so much stuff and the random bits of insanity in english that you pick make up great. "HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOW BABY!"
