I can get behind that.

With Chikara touring more and more around the country its a really good idea for there to be promotions like WiF and WiA in markets like Allentown and the New England area so those areas don't have to go without the Chikara style for too long. These areas have proved they love them some wrestling and they won't draw big crowds but there will be a decent turnout for these promotions. At least it looked like the WiF Free-per-view had a decent turn out. Kinda ticked though that both promotions run at like the farthest I really want to drive for a show haha. But WiA is suppose to run up near Albany where my brother goes to school so I might need to take a run up there during the spring if they run a show up there.

I'm interested if Wrestling is Respect will go the same way as it looks like WiF and WiA are going or if it will be more like Chikara and Ring of Honor had a baby with it having the looks of its mom(Chikara) but the personality of its dad(ROH).From its Facebook page it looks more like the latter.

Which is logical considering the relationship they've had all year. Forming a sister promotion for both companies is smart. Can add in some fresh match ups without having to keep the whole inter-promotional feud alive when it eventually dies down. Which I imagine would be at Cibernetico next weekend.

Now if only Chikara could make it's way out more to the west. That's my one request. I'll keep dreaming.

All you can do is hope on that one. They went to Alabama this year so I don't know if there is any place that they have completely off their list of possibilities.

Wrestling is Respect is suppose to be the direct successor of Pro Wrestling Respect I guess according to their website. Oddly enough WiF reminded me a lot of that idea with having the young guys wrestle there before they would move up. I expect more Chikara influence here though. Having the young guys from Chikara and the young guys from ROH mixed with some veterans could be really cool. Their goal is to distribute through SMV, also mentioned on their website. The website for Wrestling is Respect is formatted exactly like Wrestling is Awesome's website though with different color schemes and banner styles.

Fingers crossed. They're moving more and more. Maybe if they can hit up Arizona or Nevada I could travel to there. On my budget, any of the mid-west or east coast states is just too far.

I already like that. That's the best way to get the younger wrestlers a chance to get used to working shows. Almost like house shows in the WWE. Ok, not almost it is exactly like that. That's where I feel the sister promotion, or two, is good. Fully behind it this. Bonus that the shows are gonna be on SMV too. I was tempted to purchase the debut WiF! show due to card being a Chikara-lite show.

AIW - Absolution VII


No Rope Barbed Wire

John Thorne vs. Rickey Shane Page - **

Drake Younger vs. Ethan Page vs. Davey Vega vs. Arik Cannon vs. Facade vs. Eddie Kingston - ***1/4

Bare Knuckle Brawl - Special Guest Referee: Archibald Peck
Colin Delaney vs. Marion Fontaine - N/R

AIW Tag Team Titles
Matt Cross & Josh Prohibition vs. Aeroform (Flip Kendrick & Louis Lyndon) vs. The Batiri (Obariyon & Kodama) - ***1/4

Texas Bullrope Match
Jock Samson vs. The Duke - **

Adam Cole vs. ACH - ***1/4

Intense Division Title
Bobby Beverly vs. BJ Whitmer - **1/2

Irish Airborne (Jake & Dave Crist) vs. The Briscoes (Jay & Mark) - **1/4

Absolute Title - Elimination Rules
Eric Ryan vs. Tim Donst vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Zema Ion - ***1/2


For their biggest show of the year Absolution VII was a bit of a disappointment until the main event. Cole & ACH have a much better match in them, most of the other matches were just there at best besides the six-man & tag title match and IA/Briscoes called back to their earlier encounters and not in a good way. Main event delivered and at least for the end of this show the aftermatch big angle was interesting.

Too bad it didn't pan out better. Reading over that card and on paper I would have expected much different. (Maybe i'm partial since I like a lot of the talent.) Not from Briscoes vs Irish Airborne though. Callbacks to their past matches sounds about right for my assumption anyways.

CIMA and Ricochet/Yoshino and Doi ****
Danielson/YAMATO ****1/4

Danielson/YAMATO was such a good match, in a totally different way than Danielson/Shingo was. IMO this is one of the best DG USA shows since the first two PPV's. I gave every actual match higher than 3 stars. Course you can't really rate the 2 minute handicap squash.
The greatest DGUSA show ever. The main event was immense.

EDIT:

A proper re-watch:





1. Open the Freedom Gate Championship: Johnny Gargano © vs. Jon Davis

An impromptu title match. Solid stuff all around, with Davis being methodical and controlling the match, and with Gargano working from behind. The finish made a lot of sense, it pulled the trigger on Davis, and started the first chapter of the feud.

**1/2


2. Lince Dorado (1-2) vs. Jigsaw (1-1)

Good match, this was your simple and effective Lucha showcase. Both guys worked hard, and the finishing stretch was really good.

***


3. SHINE Challenge: Marti Belle vs. Christina von Eerie

A nothing match. Christina was botching a lot of moves. But that ass, yumi…

1/2*


4. The Scene (4-0) vs. The D.U.F. (Sami Callihan & Pinkie Sanchez) (0-0)

**1/2


5. Sami Callihan (3-6) vs. MASADA (0-0)

Watching this live, it seemed like Sami was legit hurt, and watching it now, I’m damn sure he was. Because, no way this would be that short, especially considering Sami’s “focus on wrestling” story, which was meant to showcase his change in approach. Shame, he looked weak here, it ended just like that. Hopefully we get a proper rematch down the road.

**1/4


6. The Gentlemen’s Club (Chuck Taylor, Drew Gulak & Orange Cassidy) vs. Rich Swann & The Super Smash Bros

The Gent’s Club is probably the most awkward stable ever. #variety~ That being said, this was a cool trios affair, there was some stalling, but once they got going, this turned out into something good.

***


7. Ricochet (4-2) vs. AR Fox (6-3)

Damn good stuff. Awesome, fast paced sprint. Ricochet’s character work was great, few nice psychological touches.

***1/2


8. El Generico (2-3) vs. Samuray Del Sol (2-3)

The match of the night. Del Sol was his usual self, performing many breathtaking spots, but it doesn’t make a good match. Thank God there’s Generico, the true BOSS of wrestling. Anyway, this was the rubber match, nice and exciting, they showcased their Lucha influences, and the finishing stretch was good, they didin’t go overboard.

***1/2


Good show overall. Four good, three solid, and one really bad match. The show just flew by, like it’s always case with DGUSA and EVOLVE, which is a big draw for me, it’s really easy to watch when nothing drags. The last hour was strong, and the midcard was solid, but I was disappointed with the Sami/MASADA match, where Sami got fucked up. Shame, it was really solid for what it was.

PWG BOLA 2012 Night 1


Joey Ryan vs TJ Perkins - **3/4
~ What you'd expect, this was fine but nothing special

Drake Younger vs Roderick Strong - ***1/2
~ Got a bit spotty at times but it was a lot easier to stomach than Younger/B-Boy from Threemendous III. Didn't go into overkill too much.

Eddie Edwards vs Kyle O Reilly - ***3/4
~ They started off with a great bit of technical wrestling, lots of counters and chain wrestling, and then it broke down into some hard-hitting strikes. Hot finish too.

B-Boy vs Brian Cage - ***
~ Not as bad as I was expecting actually. B-Boy's never really gonna make me a fan of his, but he did fine here.

Ricochet vs Kevin Steen - ****
~ Well this was just great. Steen in PWG's kinda got that Claudio-vibe; pair him up with a small high-flyer he can just beat up and you've got gold.

Willie Mack vs Sami Calihan - ***1/2
~ I felt that Willie Mack's 'plateaued' recently and hasn't been overly impressive since his matches with Hero. But this was a good outing from him here, and while I'm no fan of Calihan, they had a very solid, exciting contest. Wish Mack had sold the leg work a bit more but that's probably being a bit too picky.

Adam Cole vs El Generico - ***1/4
~ Cole's heel shtick is one of the most enjoyable things in wrestling right now.

Michael Elgin vs Davey Richards - ****1/4
~ Their ROH encounter from Showdown in the Sun Night 2 is my current MOTY so I had high hopes for this one. While it doesn't quite compare to that particular contest, largely due to the pacing being a tad off in this one (they went all-out too early in my opinion which didn't help the sense of overkill at the end), this is still a great main event and another fantastic chapter in the Elgin/Richards saga.


A very watchable show that doesn't outstay its welcome at around the 2 hour 20min mark. Nothing outright bad, 2 exceptional matches and the rest is pretty good-great. Roll on Night 2!
