Young Bucks vs Inner City Machine Guns - ***3/4
~ Swann and Ricochet should be tag partners for life. Such a great team.
Super Smash Bros. vs Unbreakable Fucking Machines - ***1/2
~ Respect to Player Uno for continuing with a separated shoulder.
Future Shock vs Dojo Bros. - ***1/2
~ Very entertaining match, Cole unsurprisingly is as fantastic as always. Loved him selling the cock chop for AAAAGES. O'Reilly is a LOT more tolerable in PWG for some reason. Dojo Bros. need a tag title run at some point down the line, Roddy and Eddie gel so well together, I love their full-out double team assault they do down the line in their matches. Finish worked well for Cole's character; it made sense for him to take shortcuts knowing he'd have to wrestle again later on.
The Briscoes vs El Generico & Kevin Steen - **3/4
~ Back in 2007 I would have thought it impossible for these four to have a less than *** match, but here it is anyway. Really not a fan of 'redneck kung fu', it doesn't add anything to a match and stalls any sort of flow. Liked the Steen/Generico interactions but that was about it.
Unbreakable Fucking Machines vs the Young Bucks - ***1/2
~ Good stuff here, I'm enjoying the UFMs as a team.
Kevin Steen & El Generico vs Future Shock - ***
~ This was fine, I enjoyed the callbacks to the Steen/Cole Mystery Vortex match, like Cole being crotched on the ringpost. Btw I hate O'Reilly's 'floppy' selling, it's so annoying.
B-Boy vs Willie Mack - **1/2
~ Found it a bit uninspiring to be honest.
Drake Younger vs Sami Callihan - ***1/4
~ You know what...I didn't hate this as much as the Mystery Vortex match. In fact, I didn't hate it at al, it was pretty good. It didn't feel like random spots this time; for example, they actually built to the 'upended chair' spot, that was nice. And anyone who drops Sami balls-first on a traffic cone is OK by me. Although I will say, Drake Younger FUCKING STOP taking unprotected chair shots. I won't be able to rant about your shitty matches if you're confined to a wheelchair.
The Young Bucks vs Kevin Steen & El Generico - ****
~ I actually really liked SuperGenerico taking all those superkicks, purely in the context of this being Generico's final PWG match. And I loved Knox's reaction after the final pinfall, that was tremendous. A fitting end to the tournament.
As for Generico's retirement speech...man, emotional. The Steen/Generico hug brought the waterworks! Such a feel-good moment.
