PWS - WrestleReunion VI

Adam Page vs Arik Royal
Interrupted by a legend who made me mark the hell out.
N/A

Special Referee is Mick Foley
BG James & Kip James vs Rick Steiner & Scott Steiner
A dud but in the fun sense of the word. This match went on way too long, but all wrestlers involved seemed to be having a fun time.
DUD

World Of Sport Rules Match
Colt Cabana vs Fit Finlay
Decent, but Cabana was going for a comedy match while Finlay was trying to keep it serious and this really hurt the match.
**

Caleb Konley & Cedric Alexander vs Mikey Whipwreck & Yoshihiro Tajiri
Whipwreck's still got it. Typical PWG styled tag match.
**

Demus 316 vs Mascarita Dorada
I'll admit it, most of the score comes from those two sick Dorada's spots.
***

LA Street Fight
Kevin Steen vs Tommy Dreamer
Started out as a fun brawl, but really dragged after the ten minute mark.
*

Jake Manning vs Roderick Strong
Manning has a cool 'manscout' character, but unfortunately much like Roderick, he has a thing about showing personality in a match. Boring uncharacteristic matwork with a few big spots.
*

Davey Richards vs Harry Smith
Suffers from your usual Richards errors which really does stop this from being great, but I thought this was a very good match.
***

El Generico & The Great Sasuke vs The Young Bucks
I was expecting a MOTY, so it's no secret that I'm a tad disappointed. It was cool however to see Sasuke and all his signature spots.
***

WrestleRoyale Match
A Royal Rumble-styled match filled with a number of familiar faces. Where else can you see Carlos Colon attack Gangrel with a stick? It was fucking terrible, but what were you expecting?
DUD

Overall:
It feels like a PWG show, but less spot-heavy and packed with 'legends'. Check it out if you are bored.

Preston City Wrestling (PCW) - Road to Glory

Preston City Wrestling held their second show just a month on from their first show A New Beginning, which i thought was a solid debut show and rather enjoyable, lets see how PCW faired with their second outing including the semi finals and finals in their quest to crown the first ever PCW Champion .

Match 1 PCW Championship Semi Final - Noam Doar vs Joey Hayes [***]
Joey Hayes opens the show yet again in another enjoyable solid opener, Noam Doars working of the leg was a joy to watch in a really competitive semi final match up, this match also allowed the PCW vs PBW storyline to continue with Lionheart assisting Noam Dar picking up the win over Joey Hayes.

Match 2 -Shaun 'The Hammer' Davis vs Luke Future, Aiden Powel and Corry E [No Rating]
Like from the first show, this was another enjoyable squash, Preston's own The Hammer is massively over with the crowd and with time is going to be one of the main players with PCW, the guys is massive.


Match 3 - The Blackpool Blondes vs Disco Madness (Sam Bailey and Mad Man Manson) [**1/4]
A fun comedy match between these teams, Mad Man Manson is hilarious the guy is a class act and the wrestling in this match between the two teams was decent.

Match 4 - PCW Championship Semi Final - T Bone vs Kris Travis [***1/2]
Great match between T Bone and Travis, the match started with some brawling in the crowd and on route to them both making their way back into the ring where they both went at it at full tilt, with some great wrestling and some stiff action. T Bone came out of this match looking like a superstar. Shame this match couldn't have gone on a bit long as both men would have torn the building down, but with the finals of this tourney happening later on in the night its understandable that the match time had to be kept down. I'd love to see these two have a bit longer and go at it again in the near future.

Match 5 - Lionheart vs Jack Gallagher [***]
PBW's Lionheart contested with Jack Gallagher (who had a corker of a match with ROH Champ Davey Richards in July '11 in FSW,i had that match at around about ****1/4/****1/2 level) in a fairly good match up. After the match the angle between PCW vs PBW was further enhanced with Lionheart calling out Kris Travis and both agreeing to a Last Man Standing Match at the next show of PCW vs PBW.

Match 6 - Dave Rayne's Open Challenge[*]
this match was all storyline advancment, Rayne ended up accepting a challenge from a guy out of the crowd called Dave who turned out to be a PBW roster member and what ensured was a 3-1 beat down on Dave Rayne by the PBW guy, Noam Dar and Lionheart and them declaring war on PCW. leading on to ......

Match 7 - Noam Dar vs T Bone [***1/2}

Another really good match , Lionheart and 'Dave' were at ringside doing their all to distract T Bone and assist Noam Dar, until the PCW locker room lead by Kris Travis pilled out to run them off. With it down to Noam Dar by himself both him and T Bone went at it at a high pace and hardly no rest spots which is surprising considering they had already wrestled in the night. Again Noam Dar's leg work was top notch and T Bone's selling of it was top notch, accumulating in his leg lock submission really had me thinking he was gonna make T Bone tap. Both guys then went on to kick the shit out of each other and have a really good title match with T Bone in the end picking up the win.


Overall thoughts this show was a real improvement over PCW's debut (which itself was really solid and good), and the story line advancement between PCW vs PBW,which incidentally is the name of the next PCW event is great i carn't wait to get that show watched. Match of the night for me was T Bone vs Kris Travis, and really only the Dave Rayne match not being up to much but that was all just for storyline development. Putting the title on T Bone was the right move for me he has the look and the right man to be at the top of the company and is a really good worker for a big man,i wouldnt be surprised in a year or two if the 'E or TNA gave him try out, i think he can be that good. Head over to PCW's facebook page and pick this DVD up, you guys won't be disappointed !

New Generation Wrestling (NGW) - Eternal Glory 3, Dec 4th 2011

NGW are a British promotions based in the North of England in Hull, i myself have never seen anything of them before but have heard great reviews about them, so i started my venture into NGW watching what many including the promoter himself on the UKFF forums have said has being there best ever show, so here we go ......

First off i have to say what a stage set up NGW have, they have a great looking stage with a TV built into it to play promos for the crowd, and also an entrance ramp, this has to be one of the best set ups in all of independent wrestling if not the best !!!

Match 1 - Rampage Brown vs Zack 'Diamond' Gibson vs Dean Allmark vs Avian [***]

The opening contest of the night was given a good amount of time 17mins plus from what i can remember (i don't write the times down), and they got alot of action into this match Avian and Dean Allmark exhibited some great high speed wrestling, and Gibson and Allmark engaged in some classy mat wrestling and then you had the athletic powerhouse of former FCW trainee Rampage Brown a star in the making for NGW who will probably become a major player in the company. Rampage took the win pinning Allmark, after Gibson and Avian were DQ'ed for brawling on the outside and being counted out. This was a good match but i just felt the guys good have turned it up a gear or two,but i suspect this wasn't done as not to burn the crowd out to early and this match was used to warm the crowd up for the rest of the nights action

Match 2 - Danny V vs Sam Bailey [**1/2]

Due to the great video package, i was brought right up to speed for this match, basically Danny V had been put out of action for 9 months by a mystery assailant and there was a big who done it, which turned out to be the then fan favourite Sam Bailey. This was Danny V's return match in a real grudge match up. This match was fairly decent but for a grudge match it was lacking that intensity and just came across as just another match on the card, what both guys did was fairly decent. Bailey picked up the win after an assist from Zack Gibson. After the match Zack Gibson and Bailey beat up on Danny V until his brother Avian ran in to make the save, setting up a tag match for in the future.

Match 3 - The Predators (Joseph Conners & Paul Malen) vs Los Amigos (El Ligero & Dara Diablo) for the NGW Tag Team Titles [***3/4]
this was the final of a tag team tournament NGW had set up to crown their first ever tag champs,before the match a highlight package is played showing action from previous rounds of the tourney at past events. This was a great match and the crowd was shit hot through out it. Los Amigos are over massive as fan favourites and The Predators played the heels against the massively over face's to perfection, using great tag tactics and underhand antics with some great tag team double teaming moves. The match started all out with some brawling outside with Ligero taking a nasty looking bump on the run way setup, what followed was some crazy action and some great dives out the ring by Diablo and El Ligero onto their foes. The in ring action saw El Ligero isolated for long period of time by the predators, trying to get that desperate tag to his partner which the crowd were lapping up. When said tag came the action picked up again with some great near falls. The finish came when one of the predators used the belts to clock Diablo over the head and pick up the win, however another ref came down to tell the ref what had gone on and the match restarted, resulting with Malen being knocked out the ring and Ligero and Diablo hitting their finishers on Conners and picking up the win and becoming the first ever NGW tag champs. The crowd went crazy for the finish.

Match 4 - Stixx vs Colossus Kennedy [***1/4]

Agian a super promo package brought me right up to speed with this feud. This was a really good big man match up one of the better ones i have ever seen, both guys beat the shit out of each other, i especially liked the nod to Wrestlemania 3 with stixx scoop slamming the huge Colossus Kennedy and then hitting the leg drop. The finish came when Stixx caught Kennedy going up top and hitting a scoop slamming type manevour, which i thought was a weak finish to a really good match.

Match 5 - Nigel McGuinness vs Jack Gallagher [***3/4]
wow what a match this was as part of McGuiness's retirement tour, one for the purists out there, and was an absolute joy to watch. Both guys put on a wrestling clinic wearing and beating one an others arms,the transitions and reversals were mesmerizing at times and Gallagher kept up with Nigel every step of the way. The wearing of the arms played a part in the finish with McGuinness locking Gallagher in a cross face and then Gallagher hitting the arm bar on Nig and both transitioning into each others submission. The finish came with Gallagher kicking out of a tour of London by McGuinness, and has McGuinness went to hit another assault on Gallagher, Gallagher jumped guard and took McGuinness down and hooked in an armbar, a last gasp pin attempt by McGuinness still in the armbar was not enough as he had to tap with crowd chanting 'Please don't Tap'. Great match such a shame it only went about 13 mins as this would have been a classic if they went any longer, however i suspect limitations regarding McGuinness might have played in the match being short, Nevertheless this was a great pure wrestling match,

Match 6 - the 'Showstealer' Nathan Cruz (c) vs Matt Myers for the NGW Championship title [****1/2]

another phenomenal highlights package brought me right upto speed with this feud that had been two year ongoing, Cruz and Myers were best friends since childhood, but Cruz turned on Myers to advance his career adding the showstealer moniker he took from Alex Shane and eventually winning the NGW Championship title. The crowd was shit hot for this match the noise on the DVD was deafening i can only imagine what it was like in the actual arena itself, Cruz's entrance was great for an indy promotion accompanied to the ring by his entourage. The match had every emotion, brawling in the crowd, some great wrestling in ring, intensity and that sense of hatred between the two wrestlers and false finishes along with some stiff action and some great story telling , what i also liked was the blocking of each others finishes at times teasing the crowd at times. One thing that i loved about the match was Myers had the chance to hit his finisher the shinning wizard on his one time best friend,but showed him what appeared compassion,but Cruz took advantage of the situation,i loved that bit of story telling between the two. Cruz hit Myers with everything he had and Myers the same to Cruz and the crowd loved every bit of it. The finish came when Cruz laid out the ref and his entourage got involved which back fired with them all getting laid out Myers had the pin on Cruz after hitting him with a brief case one of Cruz's entourage brought in the ring to help assit Cruz. Melanie Price then got flattened by Cruz himself by accident and Myers hit him with the shinning Wizard kick for the 3 and to win the NGW Championship. The crowd went crazy they had seen two local grown hull lads tear the building down in an epic battle, the locker room emptied out to celebrate with Myers and then the crowd got in the ring and hoisted him up on their shoulders and then proceeded to chant 'he's our champion' was really a great scene to close the show.


Overall thoughts - My god what a show from top to bottom it was class, i was blown away with how good this event was, it really was fantastic, it appears that Eternal Glory is NGW's Wrestlemaina type event and man didn't it deliver. The crowd played their part in a great night of action they were phenomenal. The main event was an epic match up with two former best friends and now enemies going at it. This card had everything pure technical wrestling, highflying action and great tag team wrestling. Go out and buy this DVD, two really great matches and a classic in the main event with solid supporting match ups, what are you guys waiting for ? buy it now !!!! head over to NGW website for all your NGW DVD needs. NGW look as though their going places their storylines are great they have an excellent set up and the promo videos are first class !

^ Keep up with the UK Indies reviews. They may not be the best scene in the world but it's cool to see it being discussed because it's so close to home. I posted a 4FW show review a few pages back too.
