- The first 4 matches all felt like some kind of gauntlet, as the opponents would come out instantly after the last match. PAC/Brodie was a really fun big man vs. little man match. I didn't really care for Tozawa/Swann, too many unnecessary nearfalls. Hulk/Gargano was really really good. Heel Hulk is awesome and Gargano is the ace of the company as far as I'm concerned. Oh and Brodie on commentary, that was a lot of fun.
- Sabu/Pinkie was pretty bad. Amazes me they put him in a singles match. Post match stuff was really good though. ECW Flashbacks!
- YAMATO/Chucky T wasn't all that great imo. Chucky seriously dominated the entire match and it wasn't all that exciting. Finish will lead to Ronin tension I'm sure. YAMATO is a bald headed badass with awesome theme music.
- Really surprised they put the Tag Title on last, but the match was really damn good. Tons of cool spots and great action.
- Overall it was a solid show with two great matches but nothing really to go out of your way to see.
Me Meteora and KaijuaFan had an amazing time at the show and CZW was even better. We went to Dragon Gate really drunk so most of that was really blurry but I think I liked all of it. I marked out like crazy when Tozawa sang.
Also I've seen a few CZW shows and tonight's was hands down the best. For some reason we marked the fuck out for Uhaa Nation so we loved his squash match. Mia and Greg Excellent had a crazy match, Mia stiffed the shit out of Excellent and I really thought she was going to pull off the win. Callihan/Cole is a MOTYC for me. So much emotion in the match and it was pulled off perfectly. Also Mia continued to steal the show when she took a pile driver from the apron through a table.
It was an awesome night, can't wait for High Noon. We're getting in line at noon in hopes of getting good seats. Now we're going to have some pasta and continue watching $5 Wrestling half drunk.
So who else is pumped for some damn good wrestling today? We got High Noon and Freedom Fight back to back. Gonna be a pretty awesome day. (although Turning Point is gonna be trash but who's even counting that?)
