- And in other merchandise news, check back with ROHWrestling.com next Tuesday for our latest DVD release, a special 2-Disc compilation called “Kevin Steen: Ascension To The Top”.
He goes from the guy that everyone in the company hates to the guy who they're promoting everywhere with t-shirts and dvds and putting him on the posters for your iPPVs.

Makes sense. This is on the roster now and they can make money off of him.

Something that annoyed him with the Best of HDNet sets.

NWA Force 1: This City Burns

Got this in the Highspots sampler so I figured I woujld give it a watch.


RV1 and Rich Swann vs. The Run Aways


Wasn't a fan of the beginning really as we saw a slow control segments from the high flying face team. After that though we got what I expected as the Run Aways slowed the match down and got a really long control segment on Swann with all the classic heel tactics to prevent the hot tag. Once the hot tag was made they really picked the pace up and they broke out the big spots. Fairly basic match other than a few big dives but it was pretty entertaining.
**1/4


Diego Demarco vs. Hybrid

So the commentators explain that these two have a history together and that Demarco trained Hybrid. The match was pretty unspectacular as neither guy showed much personality and they just did a bunch of average looking moves. The match finally got interesting towards the end when Demarco injures his leg and Hybrid attacks it anyway. At that point I was intrigued in the match but it ended literally one minute later when Demarco got a roll up and won. They were on to something with this one but they should have had the injury spot take place in the first few minutes instead of the last two minutes of the watch.
*1/2


Monster Squad vs. Team Lancelot


So Team Lancelot is two small guys in gear that reminds me of what Chikara guys would wear and the Monster Squad consists of two big guys and their big manager. The story pretty much writes itself with these teams and for whatever reason the crowd fucking loved Team Lancelot which added to all of this. I think they could have had a really good match with a hit crowd but for no reason that I can think of the Monster Manger gets into the ring and starts hitting the Team Lancelot members and gets a DQ. They all beat the shit out of Lancelot and cut a stupid promo. This really pissed me off a lot because I really thought I was going to enjoy this one but we just got some weak booking instead.
1/2*


Adam Cole vs. Sabian vs. Cory Kastle vs. Greg Excellent vs. Tyler Veritas vs. Core

My biggest problem with this match is that Cory Kastle and Core look exactly the same. But the fact that it had a heel Adam Cole makes up for that small inconvenience. I did love that the commentators spent all this time talking about how Kastle was unheard but still really great and he proceeded to come into the ring and botch the simplest looking moves and seriously piss of Sabian. The fact that nobody told Sabian this was supposed to be a family show and that he couldn't go around telling people the shut the fuck up. Also he destroyed the raffle prize and just walked away in a fit of rage after he had to wrestle with a terrible Cory Kastle. He was even more hilarious on the apron when he just starts insulting Kastle and telling him, "Make sure you git your shit in!" and would just berate him when he had some offense going on. When a fan told him, "Hey Sabian get your shit in!" He responded with, "I got my shit in your mama!" The match itself wasn't very good but Sabian made this a blast to watch with either being totally unprofessional or having an awesome character. Good indy fun I guess. And by "good indy fun" I mean there is no chance in hell you will something like this in bigger promotions.
**1/2


NWA Force 1 Heritage Championship Match:

Nicky Benz(c) vs. Ryu Lee

At least they weren't both generic indy guys with no character. Benz is the classic indy heel as he dressed like Elvis and before the match told that after he won he would make sure all children were banned from wrestling shows. Ryu Lee could have passed for either Kastle or Core from the last match. Nothing special at all but it's the kind of match that is fun to see live so I understand why it had a spot on the card. Over the top heels are usually pretty funny and Benz was no exception, I loved his wig that feel off a few times during the match. Some serious sloppiness at the end of the match really hurt the overall experience.
*3/4


DJ Hyde vs. Johnny Calzone

He might not be very good in the ring but Hyde is over as a heel wherever he goes. Calzone is some local guy that is really over as well so the atmosphere is as good as you can get for a show like this. Not a very good match but fairly short and entertaining enough I guess.
**


NWA Force 1 Championship Match:

Sami Callihan(c) vs. Rhett Titus

I like the rare occasion when I get to see two indy guys wrestle a more traditional type of a match. Sami is a heel hear and Titus plays the classic babyface that wants to take the title off the champion that has no respect for his title. I just have to say that Titus can really sell. Sami controls a lot of this match and between strong offense and good selling they kept it interesting the entire time. Titus made a really awesome comeback too. When you see fans jumping in excitement you are clearly doing something right. This is just one of those matches where you just find yourself sucked into the match and cheering on the face. The finish was a little overbooked but it at least made for a suspenseful ending stretch. Really good match.
***1/4


Mask vs. Hair "I Quit" Match:

The Phoenix vs. Kevin Cunningham

Lots of spots and they were really hit or miss. Some of them looked amazing but there were also some that just looked terrible. There are ways to wrestle a hardcore match without being dangerous and still showing a lot of hatred and this wasn't one of those examples. They also didn't seem to understand the idea of an "I Quit" match. The guy isn't going to quit AFTER you do a big spot I mean that spot is what they have to fear. Once it's done they've already endured the worst. At no point did either guy pause before hitting a big move to ask the guy to quit BEFORE they did the move. After 20 minutes of spots they finally started to use some submissions. The ending was pretty lame as well. This ended up being 30 minutes long and not very interesting either.
*1/2


Overall this was a rough show to watch. It would be kind of fun to see live I think but as a DVD company they really had nothing to offer. The productionw as terrible with the super low lighting and annoying commentary. The camera work was cool because they had a guy recording on the apron but it was just so dark. I was expecting much and this only cost $3 so I can't complain too much.



Also last night I had a few too many beers and tried to watch PWG Fear at 1am. I had the bright idea of writing a review while watching it as well. Not too surprisingly I passed out before the second match ended but here's what I wrote....


Kenny King vs. TJ Perkins


It has an opening sequence than those dastardly Fighting Taylor Boys (who look like totally different people then they did 6 months ago) and ruin the match.
NO RATING


Kenny King and TJ Perkins vs. The Fightin Taylor Boys


Those dastardly and despitcable Fighting Taylor Boys just beat the shit out of Perkins and King and they even hit the ref or something like that. But it's cool they just throw him back into the ring and the ref just no sells him getting thrown out of the ring. The match was fun and everything but my thoughts were all about who Kevin Steen invited to his wedding. He was only allowed 2 wrestle guests and one of them was Kenny King and he said he wasn't allowed to say who the other one was. I'm feeling like it would be El Generico but why couldn't Steen say it was him!? We all know that they used to be friends so it would totally make sense to have him there. This appears to be a mystery that I will never know the answer to unless Steen decides to reveal his secret.

Also the fans chanted, "This match sucks!" during a control segment which I didn't think was very fair because control segments are never all that exciting to see. The control segment worked because Kenny King got a really good hot tag, which is a role that he is perfect for. After the hot tag there was all this awesome shit that could best be described by Kevin Steen as, "Holly Balls!" I really liked it. Fuck the star ratings and all that stuff...
REALLY GOOD


Roderick Strong vs. The Amazing Red or Amazing Red I'm not sure how he prefers his name to be pronounced


If I had a .gif of someone going, "Whoaa" I would just post that as my review. However as I am typing this the DVD is playing right now and I would have to pause the DVD in the middle of a match to find the appropriate .gif or quickly look and miss some of the match. Neither of those strike as good situations so I just want you to imagine that instead of all these words I posted a .gif of someone going, "Whoaa" This clearly means that I liked the match because I would juste waste all this time or talk about wasting all this time to find a funny .gif if I thought the match sucked. Lots of cool stuff and I really like Red when just gets his ass kicked but continues to fight.



That was as far as I got before I passed out which after reading this was probably for the best.

Well I feel like a jerk for talking bad about Highspots. They sent me an email and said they were sorry for taking so long but the whole office was out of town for a convention (which is obviously Wrestle Reunion). They sent out my missing DVDs today.

Ok, just watched the Guerilla Warfare match between Super Dragon and Kevin Steen from Astonishing X-Mas. That was a fucking brutal match. The 3 curb stomps were sick, and so was the finish. Absolutely a great match, only negative point would be the fans chanting "Super Dragon .. Mr. Wrestling... Super Dragon" etc.. way too long lol.

Nah the negative point of the match was Super Dragon was in it. That is probably my favorite match of his though.

If you're not a ringside member, I don't believe any of them are on sale.

EDIT: BUT, if you are a member, all of those except the Roddy set are included in the sale. It's everything under the NEW!!! icon.
