Highspots are having a memorial day sale, especially on old school ECW stuff. If I had the money to buy all the Hardcore TV's & the TNN episodes in this sale I would.
There's a few PWG DVD's on sale for $9.99 too, including Kurt RussellReunion 3 & Fear, which is cool. I don't like Highspots and haven't ordered anything from them in years, but I think it's too good of an opportunity to pass up and not grab KRR3 & Fear for $10 and also pick up DDT4.
I just watched Kurt RussellReunion 2 days ago. I thought it was pretty dissapointing. The undercard was a complete snoozefest for me with the exception of Young Bucks vs Richards/Smith, and only Mascarita Dorada and the main event were really worth watching imo..
"If one thinks of history as those past events transcribed for posterity, wrestling, to a significant degree, has no history. Not only are the achievements of past wrestlers ignored by current fans, but those in control of the business willfully distort wrestling's past in order to market the current product."
W.O.W. (Warriors Of Wrestling) Preshow
Nero vs. Abdul Nasir - *
Antonio Rivera vs. Rude Boy Riley - *
Chris Banks vs. Logan Black - *1/2
Glitz & Glamour (Jarrett Foster & Aaron Stride) vs. The Midnight Sensations (Chris Rockwell & Sam Shields) - ** Somebody from the Jersey Shore was with G&G and no one cared.
Mia Yim vs. Kimber Lee - **1/2
Best Of The Light Heavyweights 14
Azrieal vs. Bandido, Jr. vs. Archadia vs. Ricky Reyes vs. Devon Moore vs. Pinkie Sanchez vs. Danny Demanto - **1/4 Should have been better but Demanto dragged it down.
W.O.W. Heavyweight Title
Jasin Karloff vs. Jason Kross - DUD This was terrible on all levels. Kids were chanting boring, fans were yelling to go home, Karloff got blown up halfway through and Kross was so pissed about this match and the fans he cut a youtube work/shoot promo a week later.
South Side Playaz Club (Mo Sexton & Joe Hardway) vs. Dirty Rotten Scoundrelz (E.C. Negro & K.C. Blade) - **
Monsta Mac vs. Gregory Iron - *
JAPW Tag Team Titles - Ghetto Street Fight
Strong-Style Thug Outlaws (Homicide & Eddie Kingston) vs. Phillyís Most Wanted (Joker & Sabian) - **3/4 Easily the match with the most heat up to this point. Joker & Kingston have chemistry whether working as opponents or as a team.
JAPW Heavyweight Title
Low Ki vs. Dan Maff - **1/4 Match was just there until the screwball ending because you-know-who canít lose clean.
This was built as maybe the last JAPW and it easily shows why. The undercard was terrible and a chore to sit through and it didnít help that the fans didnít care about anything except Mia Yim, SSPCís strippers and the last two matches. Also didnít help that Warriors Of Wrestling got matches on the card and all did worse then the regulars from JAPW.
