London Riots vs Velocity Vipers - Progress Chapter 2

Yeah this was just an incredible spectacle and a total blast to sit through. Both Vipers make Pete Doherty look like a bodybuiler and they're just bumping machines for everything the Riots throw at them. Riots themselves are really entertaining bruisers with some nice trash talk and just being suitably stiff in every bit of offence they dish out. More commentators need to reference their distain that the Justin Bieber wannabee getting slaughtered isn't actually the real Beiber. HOLY SHIT at the attempted Ziggler monkey flip bump the scrawny looking Viper attempted when taking an exploder suplex, landed disgustingly on his knees and got taken to the back almost immediately. The Viper who took most of the beating actually looked pretty damn good as a mini Evan Bourne bump freak with some admittedly spotty offence, although the extent to which the Riots had continually dominated at least made the chaotic and unique offence feel necessary instead of just mindless spots. Spot where one of the Riots dislodged the mouthguard, spat on it and then pushed it back into the Viper's mouth was a nifty character moment and the sort of thing someone like Steen should replicate.


Sami Callihan vs John Morrison, (2CW 8/3/12)

Ehh a bit of a divisive match tbh, opening stages were pretty uneventful and didn't feel too well structured and seemed disjointed and haphazard. Just a bunch of basic countering broken up into stop-start momentum with some brawling on the outside but with no theme being developed. Sami took a couple of strong looking bumps in all of this though, and Morrison's moonsault spot where he balanced with both feet on the guardrail and apron to hit a moonsault was fucking spectacular as far as nutty spots go. Callihan transition spot was well timed with Sami failing to hit a floatover powerbomb off the top rope, only to superkick Morrison's knee as he's still clinging to the ropes. Next few minutes are honestly the peak of the match, with Sami having a bunch of nifty looking submissions to exploit the knee injury as well as utilising some creative spots such as wrenching the injured leg during a cover and breaking out the Finlay powerslam into the ropes spot. Morrison sells really well during all of this, noticeably limping when he's on both feet and bringing it into key moments of the match, such as when he counters the odd Callihan move only for his knee to buckle as well as a sweet spot near the end where Morrison's knee takes too long in pulling Sami to the corner for Starship pain and allows Sami to hit a surprise backdrop suplex.

Last few minutes weren't as strong imo, and I disliked Sami ignoring the leg for a few minutes and basically losing out to Morrison in strike battles, rather than Morrison making a comeback by countering some of Callihan's attempts at further injuring the knee. Its watchable and I'll still take this sort of match over a strike battle orientated Kyle O'Reilly match, but truth be told the biggest thing I took out of this is that Callihan vs Masters could seriously OWN.

People need to watch Kingston/Tadasuke and Sugar/Tatanka matches. Fantastic stuff.

This, minus Sami/CIMA. The last night's main event was absolutely fantastic, and it gave PWG's classics from this year a run for their money.

Amen. Morrison sold well, but truth be told watching it I could just imagine how well Masters would sell the workover, whilst having the advantage of timing and working his comeback in a better fashion than Morrison. The final few minutes weren't exactly bad, but rather underwhelming. Seeing how well Masters used to make his finishing stretches on top of the workover was a strong staple of his matches, plus I could see Callihan thriving in an environment where he's outmatched in terms of power and has to find a new gameplan.

Morrison/Callihan is here btw: http://vimeo.com/52308729

I generally enjoy Kingston matches, so I'll definitely give his match a watch if a link surfaces.

King is a strong candidate for the Indy WOTY moniker. He knows how to play the game. #BOSS

Btw, if you catch Sugar/Tatanka, you'll be blown away and think you're watching WWF '91.

Yeah Kingston is the sort of guy I wished we saw more of in the indies. Has really strong offence, but the key to his matches is his selling and ability to make it a story which dominates the wrestling. It makes his stiff striking offence feel more desperate and necessary rather than a poor imitation of Japan, because he's taken the time to sell and make himself look vulnerable and in danger. I still really want to watch the Quackenbush match from the season finale last year. Quack is sometimes too cute and spotty for my tastes, but I've read a bit about the match and Quack being the base from which Kingston has to fight under and overcome is definitely a role where his submission and man of a 1000 holds style will shine. Kingston/Danielson in 2010 is still one of Danielson's best matches in the timeframe he debuted on NXT up until now. Great story and selling from Kingston, just a shame about the fuck finish but it tells you how good the match was when you don't even get a proper finish and its still easily a capable MOTYC based on what we got before it.

I'll give Sugar/Tatanka a watch then, just to see what its like. There's a lot I admire about Chikara in terms of the characters and presentation of the product, and in the right setting the light hearted comedy is something I can appreciate. I do find some of the actual ringwork to be far spottier than classic Lucha however a lot of the time though.

Amen.

I need to re-watch King/Quack, only seen it once. I have it at ****1/4, IIRC. I might download the whole show and re-watch it, I remember it being awesome all around. And, never seen that King/DBD match, I need to find the link.

Btw, did you watch King/Hero "Loser Leaves Twon" from CZ-DUB? Immense stuff.

God damn did Megaupload crashing really fuck up links. Pretty sure you should be able to find one in the media section, but its legit great for the time it gets. Kingston tries to go hold for hold out of pride with Danielson, pays for it and gets his leg torn to shreads and has to try and find a way back into the match. Simply yet effective story and with really strong selling from Kingston.

Nah I've seen a lot of recaps and promos from their on/off again feud, think I recall someone who I generally listen to more than most really give their LLT match strong praise so I'll have a search and see if I can track it down.
