Is New Jersey really that bad of a pro wrestling state? During 99-06 it seemed to be somewhat of a hotspot with lots promotions running there or stationed there, even through the rest of that decade promotions were still running there although it doesn't seem like many places run in NJ anymore.
I don't know about the state as a whole but it's the areas around NYC and Philadelphia that cause problems. Promoters assume that all the people in the big cities will cross the river to see a show in New Jersey. Some people will but there aren't nearly as many as if the show was just held in Philly or New York. For example Union City, NJ (where Evolve has held a few shows at the Ace Arena) is literally right across the river from New Jersey. With no traffic I can go from BB Kings in NYC to the Ace Arena in like 15-20 minutes. Evolve gets a nice crowd for BB Kings and they draw 70 people for the Ace Arena.

-Dont know when Rivira went heel and started teaming with Shane but its interesting

Sigmon vs Moe Stegall
**1/2-***
I was impressed with Moe up until he fell off the top rope. I dug Sigmon. The anouncers really played it up that Moe had a small chance of winning then he pulls out a suprise BACKSLIDE. VINTAGE. Which I was a fan of. Decent fun match.

Bradford Family segment
We go to the Bradford Familys lockerrom where we see Boyd Bradford, Killer Nikels, and Doink the Clown standing around a sitting John Michael as he talks like Howard Finkel. I apreciate the anouncers givving a bit of a back story so I could kinda of peice togeather what was happening.

John Michael Worthington vs Angel
***
This was nothing more than a extended squash but it really advanced the John Michael storyline and for God sakes the man Hulked up, did a big boot & leg drop (brother), did the Macho Man finger taunt, and locked in a figure 4. Michael gets the win as he trys to leave the ring do to coming out of him "mind control" as Boyd destracts the ref and Nikels hits a chokeslam from hell and Doink comes off the top with a whoopie cushion. They put Michael on top of Angel for the 3.

Shane Williams & Matt Riviera segment
Now when I went to a show back on Dec 3 these two were feuding and had a decent match (Matt tried to throw his bandana to a girl in the front row and it landed on the floor, Shane got out of the ring to a chorus of boos as he picked up the bandana, he helled it out to the girl which made everyone go from boos to awws, she reached for that bandana...and SHANE THREW THAT THING AND STOMPED IT. (Hail Shane)
The segment got a little awkward as they were laying next to each other on seperate masage tables with their shirts off and under sheets. Then they went to get mannys.

This promo was entertaining overall. It delt with Matt being frustraited and Shane being a smartass.

Cheerleader Mellisa vs Mickie James
***
Before the match Cheerleader cuts a promo saying her and Mickie have wrestled before but it will be the first time in the United States. She says this however wasnt her first time in Arkansas as she came to visit the man she loved....BOBBY PATRINO. (I died) The match was very good. I give TCW alot of credit for briging in top femal talents to compete. Women like Cheerleader, Athina, Mellina Hosaka (Before she retired), and Claudia Del Sol. It was a good back and forth match. At one point it looked like they were going to do a top rope suplex but ended with Mickie getting pushed off and Cheerleader hitting a nice dropkick. The finish seemd a little screwd up but overall a good match. Mickie won via her spike ddt.

Overall thoughts
This was a very fun and enjoyable show. I want to see more of both Moe and Sigmon, The John Michael thing is an instant classic for me. The top face of the company hanging out with one of the top heels is very interesting, and the last two matches are both enjoyable.

Matt went heel when he start talking bad about his former partner.

I like TCW and watch the shows but the storylines is definitely lacking and this type of promotion needs at least one storyline for the champion. Tim Storm have nothing going. I know he has a beef with Killer and the Bradford family but that's it.

John Michaels is just awesome.

Genetic Perfection is my second favorite tag team in the business behind Silver King/Wagner Jr. Surprise ROH hasn't snatch them up.

Speaking of that, the good thing about this promotion is 1. They in an area with no competition and a place that wants wrestling. 2. They have guys WWE and TNA will never sign. I like Tim Storm and King Shane but they look old and probably at least 35 in age. That's good news for TCW fans. LOL

What did you think of the concussion bit and flying headbutt comments in the beginning? I actually like the guts of this promotion saying we understand concussions sucks but we can't prevent it and using the flying headbutt is a part of wrestling.

Genetic Perfection are also one of my favorite teams. The guys know how to flat out work and Rich Rude is epic.

When I heard Sigmon uses the flying heabutt I though "Oh God no" but then I thought he probably uses it properly with landing on his hands insted of like Beniot with his forhead. It makes me feel like TCW is very old school with a new school flavor.

One problem with the tv show is that they follow about a month behind the live shows, so the storylines are normaly behind. I dont mean this in a bad way because he comes off as a nice guy but Matt kinda seems like a self promoter. Not in that he always goes over or wins all the titles but that hes always in the top feud or the second top feud. They deff have very little competition. Theres a promotion that runs in Tuckerman called ASWF but and run every Friday but damn they're small.

TCW has said they have a big anouncment planned and I hope that they can pull a AAPW move and bring in some bigger name indy guys to face TCW regulars. They do it every once in a while and The Tokyo Monster Khangas is actually on the show ill for sure be going to but id like to see the champs go over on some biger names in a way that it builds the champs up even more.

Just finished London & Kendrick's Bogus Journey. What a ride. This was Excellent Adventures with filosophy. In a way I feel like I'm reborn as a human being.

I want to get high with these guys so bad.

I can only vouch for Rumble in the Rec Center, but I was thoroughly entertained. It wasn't even the Rumble so much as the undercard stuff.

Ah well that makes sense, I would assume that's its probably difficult to find a really good venue in Philly (since the Arena closed) and more so New York. I guess they use the Ace Arena because of it's convenient location (though the place doesn't look very big), and like you said hoping that either the locals or people from NY and Philly will drive out to the show.

EVOLVE 9: Gargano vs. Taylor
New York City, NY- July 26, 2011

Quick Thoughts: After being so bitter about EVOLVE 8 I had my reservations going into this show. However, much the opposite of Style Battle I love this show and for good reason; going back to the mechanics and concepts that bought EVOLVE into the game. A consistent undercard matched with a strong second half and fantastic main events. Voted by fans the 2011 EVOLVE/DGUSA show of the year.


Eric Ryan vs. Bobby Beverly- N/A due to Steen
Super Smash Bros. vs. Facade & Jason Gory- Really good tag sprint for the time it got.
Silas Young vs. Sugar Dunkerton- Good match with a simple, yet effective dynamic to play off of.
Lince Dorado vs. Pinkie Sanchez- Solid match
Up in Smoke vs. The Scene- Good tag match that established the foundation for the Scene.
Bobby Fish vs. Jon Davis- N/A due to Steen
Bobby Fish vs. Jon Davis vs. Kevin Steen (Street Fight)- Great 3 Way showcase with each guy getting in their signature offense and everyone came out looking strong.
Tony Nese vs. John Silver- Towards great match, they had really good chemistry (Both NYWC Grads). Much better than what I remembered. Fuck I didn't remember Nese being so good during his original EVOLVE run.
Dave Finlay vs. Sami Callihan- A great mix of brawling, storytelling and playing off of character dynamics that went back to showcasing a different style of match not seen in EVOLVE since roughly Danielson vs. Sawa. One of EVOLVE's top matches, easily on par with Richards/Ibushi and if not better, Danielson/Fish.
Johnny Gargano vs. Chuck Taylor (Win leaders)- Great main event where both guys worked hard and the exchanges and familiarity between both guys really made the match shine and took it up to that next level.
______________________

EVOLVE 10: Tribute to the Arena
Philadelphia, PA- January 14, 2012

Quick Thoughts: This was a decent show, a vast step down from EVOLVE 9 but better than EVOLVE 8. The crowd destroyed this show for the most part and EVOLVE 10 didn't flow as well as previous shows. Regardless, some good matches and again an alright show when you zone out the clusterfuck booking.


Low Ki vs. Ahtu- Not really much to say, Ahtu got knocked the fuck out.
Cheech Hernandez vs. KC Day- Really good match; lots of counters mixed with high flying.
John Silver & Alex Reynolds vs. The Scene- Decent tag match but dragged at times.
Jigsaw vs. AR Fox- Really good crash style match with a great finish.
Uhaa Nation vs. Pinkie Sanchez- Very entertaining squash
Chucky T & Rich Swann vs. Super Smash Bros.- Damn good tag match, took a while to get going but once it did they went balls.
Kyle Matthews vs. Jon Davis- Poorly done squash
Bobby Fish vs. Sami Callihan- Very good storytelling here, but the fans didn't react to anything and made the submissions drag when they weren't supposed to.
Johnny Gargano vs. Ricochet (Open the Freedom Gate Title)- N/A out of respect to Gargano
Sabu vs. Justin Credible- Alright for what it was, in their physical condition can't knock them too much.
___________________________

EVOLVE 11: Finlay vs. Callihan
Toronto, ON- April 13, 2012

Quick Thoughts: This was a pretty crappy EVOLVE show on the level EVOLVE 8, but not their fault in the slightest. The original lineup would've made this show better but Gabe had to work with what he had. Really a two match show at its core.


Super Smash Bros. vs. The Gentlemen's Club- Fun opener
MK McKinnan vs. Josh Alexander- Squash
Mike Rollins vs. Ashley Sixx- Nothing match
John Silver vs. Alex Reynolds- Good match, both guys worked hard but the crowd wasn't having it.
Samuray Del Sol vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Chucky T- Decent Triple threat, they had to hold back though.
Adam Page vs. Caleb Konley- Decent Match, but nothing to write home about.
Low Ki vs. El Generico- A good, smart worked match sticking to the basics with a really good finish.
Dave Finlay vs. Sami Callihan- A strong main event match playing off the dynamic of their previous two encounters, making sure they don't mimic those matches but keep the same qualities that made those work. Not nearly as good as their EVOLVE 9 match but great nonetheless.
