Default PWG Failure to Communicate - October 27th 2012

(It kinda goes without saying, but BOLA spoilers are abundant here!)

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's Failure to Communicate Takes Place October 27, 2012!
By Silverback, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Staff Writer

Pope Valley, CA - Coming out of the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles there was a totally new hierarchy of power in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (http://www.prowrestlingguerrilla.com). After all, World Champion "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen was defeated in the opening round of the tournament by Ricochet in a non-title match, who in turn lost in the semi-final round to "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin. Unfortunately for Elgin, he was ultimately bested by the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles winner, the "Panama City Playboy," Adam Cole. Immediately after winning this year's tournament, Cole made his intentions of winning the Pro Wresting Guerrilla World Championship title abundantly clear. However, Cole also made it clear that he would be winning the World Championship on his own terms, on his own timeline.

Rather than writing any more about it, we will let the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles winner Adam Cole speak for himself:





Along with Adam Cole's refusal to accept his title shot or even appear at Failure to Communicate, World Tag Team Champions Player Uno and Stupefied, the Super Smash Brothers, have a previous engagement and will be unable to appear on October 27. The champs will be back in action at Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's final event of the year in December.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's Failure to Communicate takes place Saturday, October 27, 2012, at 8:00PM at American Legion Post #308. American Legion Post #308 is located at 7338 Canby Ave., Reseda, CA 91335. Front Row tickets are $35, and General Admission tickets are $25. Tickets for Failure to Communicate will go on sale Thursday, September 20, at 8:00PM PDT.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship Title Three-Way Match
"Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen (Champion) vs. "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs. Ricochet

-- With Adam Cole taking himself out of the picture at Failure to Communicate, the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Board of Directors were forced to look elsewhere for Kevin Steen's next challenger. After the first round of the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles, it was very easy to peg Ricochet as the number one contender for the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship. But with Ricochet's elimination from the tournament, that also puts Michael Elgin's name into the number one contender conversation. Does the man who directly beat the World Champion receive the title shot, or does the man who beat the man who beat the man get named top contender? Rather than attempt to unravel this convoluted web, the Board decided to give both Michael Elgin and Ricochet a chance to dethrone "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen on October 27.
As if having to worry about facing two other world-class competitors, whichever man leaves Failure to Communicate as Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Champion will also be forced to confront (and endure the mind games of) the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles winner, the "Panama City Playboy" Adam Cole. Will the challenge waiting on the horizon unnerve the competitors, or will they be able to remain focused on the task at hand and devote all of their concentration to winning the World Championship?

Tag Team Match
Eddie Edwards & Roderick Strong vs. The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)

-- After the Super Smash Brothers were crowned the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Tag Team Champions at Death to All But Metal, Player Uno and Stupefied put the titles on the line against Future Shock (Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly) and the former champions, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson), in one of the most talked-about matches of the year, a three-way ladder match for the titles at Threemendous III. Since Pro Wrestling Guerrilla's ninth anniversary event in July, the majority of the focus within the company has been on singles matches, due entirely to the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles. That is not the say that the World Tag Team Championship is any less important; on the contrary, the tag titles have been the source of much discussion, mainly due to the lack of a clear set of number one contenders.

The Young Bucks, two men who are defined by their enormous success as tag team wrestlers, immediately began angling for a shot at the world titles. The Jacksons claimed that because their match with Super Smash Brothers at Threemendous III was a three-way match, it was not a true rematch, and therefore they deserved another chance to dethrone the new champions. The Pro Wrestling Guerrilla Board of Directors were unconvinced, and agreed that while impressive, the Bucks' previous tag team achievements do not necessarily warrant unlimited title shots. Therefore, like all other tag teams in this post-Death to All But Metal world, the Bucks will have to prove their worth.

Two men familiar with putting in work and proving themselves are Roderick Strong and Eddie Edwards. After both were eliminated in the quarter-final round of the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles, the pair, having previously teamed together in Pro Wrestling NOAH, decided to reunite and try their luck at the World Tag Team Championship titles. Roderick is a multiple-time Tag Team Champion in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, and while Eddie Edwards has not reached the top of the mountain in PWG, his success elsewhere makes him a very serious threat for anyone unlucky enough to be standing across the ring from him.

Edwards and Strong know that they're starting off near the bottom of the tag team food chain, but a win over the former champions would certainly propel them up the ladder. However, The Young Bucks are not known as the most dominant tag team Pro Wrestling Guerrilla has ever seen because they're push overs. Sure, they can talk the talk, but they can walk the walk, as well. Have the Bucks lost a step, along with losing the titles, or was their defeats at the hands of the Super Smash Brothers just momentary set backs?

Singles Grudge Match
Brian Cage vs. Willie Mack

-- When Brian Cage challenged "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen for the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship, he had no one to blame but himself (well, ostensibly Kevin Steen, too) for coming up short. When Willie Mack challenged Steen for the title at Threemendous III, Willie Mack could not only blame himself (and ostensibly Kevin Steen), but Brian Cage, as well. After Senior Official Rick Knox was incapacitated during Willie and Steen's match, Cage hit the ring and decked both champion and challenger alike. While it is unknown how much of an effect this had on the outcome of the match, Cage's interference undoubtedly put an Asterix next to Willie Mack's first-ever Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship title shot.

Fast forward to the 2012 Battle of Los Angeles, where Brian Cage once again interjected himself into Kevin Steen's match, though this time the interference backfired, with Cage finding himself on the receiving end of a package piledriver. To most rational men, this would be the end of things. You tried to jump a guy, but he got the better things and dropped you on your head. However, Cage was unsatisfied and continued to run his mouth by not only calling Steen a coward for refusing to accept Cage's challenge, but Willie Mack as well, naming him an unworthy challenger to the Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship.

Having seen and heard enough, Willie Mack approached the Board of Directors and asked that he be granted a match with Brian Cage. Not a number one contender match, not even a number two contender match, but a match where Willie Mack can get his hands on Brian Cage, and kick his cheating ass. The Board, always happy to see a grudge match take place (typically because it results in a lot of spilled, and subsequently purchased, beer), obliged, and therefore on October 27 at Failure to Communicate, Brian Cage will take on Willie Mack, one-on-one!

Singles Match
Sami Callihan vs. Davey Richards

El Generico vs. Rich Swann

Looks like it'll be a fun card, kinda bummed there's no Super Smash Brothers or Adam Cole on the card. Bright side is Rich Swann is debuting.

Generico vs. Swann will be great and I'm sure the triple threat will be fun as well, but I'd much rather just see Steen/Ricochet in a one on one and let it go for longer than it did at BOLA. I wouldn't be surprised to see Elgin take the pin so that they can still have Ricochet/Steen somewhere else down the line. The title chase is fucking cramped though; You've got Ricochet and Elgin, Adam Cole, Willie Mack who will want his rematch as well as Brian Cage. I'm not complaining because it makes for an entertaining product, it just seems all over the place.

I expect Cage to be the one to actually take the title off of Steen, but who knows. Seems like a fun show.

Sami/Davey could be really awesome, or really terrible. Nothing else really jumps out to me to be honest, but I'm not into PWG as much as any of you probably are. I only really started paying attention since Steen Wolf last year, and I don't watch ROH, so I don't really have a good idea of what a lot of these guys bring to the table. It doesn't look like a bad show, but it doesn't seem like a really memorable show

Looks like a fun show. I might be in the minority but I love the main event and the fact of Elgin and Steen beating the crap out of Ricochet. Bucks vs. Roddy & Eddie while random should be good at the very least. I love the Cage vs Mack match as well and it should have some great heat from the Reseda crowd. Swann vs Generico could be awesome as well and it will be interesting to see how he is received in Reseda. Have heard a ton of different opinions on the Callihan vs Richards match from earlier this year but from what I've heard I'm not that pumped for it but maybe they could suprise me. Overall this show has a Death To All But Metal feel to it seems more like a B show but could shock fans with how good it is

Even PWG's "B shows" best most other companies' "A shows," so I have no doubt this will deliver. Those fans get way more out of their $25/35 than do anybody else.

Card looks really good, the match that i am looking foward the most is Edwards & Roddy vs Young Bucks, they have a good run in the NOAH jr Tag League and i am curious to see what they can do in the US.
