Re: British Wrestling Thread
I went to PCW's Road to Glory tournament Night 1 last night. It was a very solid, fun show, albeit with some questionable booking:
Martin Kirby pinned Dean Allmark in a really crisp & exciting opener.
Bubblegum beat April Davids after T-Bone interfered. Loads of heat for Bubbs & Bone's antics.
CJ Banks beat Kris Travis via count out. The finish was a mess - Bubblegum & T-Bone jumped Trav in full view of the ref. So the champ screwed the former holder by getting him eliminated from the title shot tournament.... but then T-Bone announced he would defend the belt against Travis on Night 2.
Brian Kendrick beat Kid Fight in a good match.
Joey Hayes defeated Paul London in another decent bout. London's ring entrance had to be the longest in wrestling history - he did several laps of the club, performing a building-wide meet & greet. London wound up with a nasty cut above his eye. The result was no surprise, as London is working in Kent tonight.
Noam Dar made Andy Wild tap out. This was dull in places, but ended strong. Dar has embraced his increasing popularity & given up trying to play heel. Afterwards, Dar's quarter final opponent, CJ Banks attacked him, leaving Noam wide open for the one & only Dave Rayne to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase & win the PCW Cruiserweight title. Rayne is officially the most over man in PCW - the pop for his win was huge.
Carmel Jacobs beat Kay Lee Ray. These two could be seen practising their match on the tv screens while folks were queuing up. Kay Lee Ray wrestles with reckless abandon & pulled off a bunch of risky looking spots before injuring her ankle right before the finish.
Dave Mastiff & Mad Man Manson went to a no-contest after both men attacked the ref in very funny comedy match.
Super Crazy pinned El Ligero in an excellent main event. Crazy is a ring general with a superb sense of pacing & timing, and amazing agility for a man his size & age.
