Do you know Seabs? Correct me if I'm wrong but he is a HUGE ACH fan. A very athletic guy. There are many ways to tell a story but doing spots just because you can doesn't make it a story which happens with athletic guys on the indies. They'll probably get over with the style but that doesn't mean everyone enjoys it when its just spots.

Well, that's you and I'm scratch my head wondering what it is exactly that you want in a pro wrestler. But, hey, different strokes for different folks.

That's all there is to it.

I'm not much of a non-advocate of high flyers. In fact, I often enjoy a good bunch. Simply don't care for ACH. Now a top level high flyer like a Frightmare, Kota Ibushi, or Ricochet. Yeah, I love those guys.

So, The Rainmaker, what was your rating for Ibushi/Omega, then?

Don't want to put words into Seabs' mouth but I think a huge part of his problem with Fox is he can be sometimes to high-flying what Drake Younger is - a guy who sometimes takes the stupidest bumps possible in the wrong place at the wrong time for no reason or payoff. Plus sometimes his matches can go into spotfest war mode, which some people enjoy and some don't.

PWG Mystery Vortex

Eddie Edwards & Roderick Strong vs. Young Bucks ****1/2-****1/4

GREAT way to open the show. Fast paced action from start to finish with some unique double team moves from both teams. The last 5 minutes or so was great and the finish was awesome.

Eddie Edwards & Roderick Strong vs. Super Smash Bros ****1/2-****1/4

Another great match from Eddie & Roderick on this show. The match flew by and it had the same fast paced action that the first match did. Eddie & Roderick should team up a lot more in PWG & ROH if Roddy turns face.

This is what I've written about Fox few months ago, and I still feel the same:
Quote:
AR Fox is good. He's not my favorite wrestler, and he's not great, but the guy is busting his ass out there. His mindset is to go out there and win a match by hitting as many big moves as possible. Now, I know that sounds bad, but in reality it looks pretty decent actually, and not over the top. Nothing different from a powerhouse tossing his opponent around, or a striker throwing vicious kicks all the time. Some dudes pull legs, some throw chops, some throw strikes, and AR Fox flys, it's simple as that. He gets crowds to cheer him, and that's always positive. He even improved his game in slower, methodical parts this year. He can wrestle even limbwork matches. And his hardcore stuff has been top notch this year. So yeah, Fox is a new all-round wrestler to watch, IMO. But, I'd really like him to slow down sometimes, and to adjust or modificate his offense, for his sake, because his high-impact moves can look devastating even to his own body sometimes.

Finally got around to Ibushi/Omega (8/18), and absolutely loved it. Much more epic, big-match feel than I ever expected from DDT, and for a match with so many huge MOVEZ spots, hardly anything felt contrived or over-the-top. I say "hardly" anything because the big balcony dive was way too huge a moment for how insignificant it ended up being in the long run, and I'm not sure I like the Phoenix splash being the one finisher of either guy's that doesn't get kicked out of; I don't follow DDT regularly, but I feel like the Phoenix-Plex and the One-Winged Angel are too recently-introduced as ultimate match enders to be just nearfalls already, even in a huge match where their not ending the match is properly framed as a big friggin' deal. I will say, though, that the way in which Omega got his shoulder up after the Phoenix-Plex actually helped sell the devastating nature of the move in the context of how important it was for him to win. All things considered, ★★★★½
