Re: British Wrestling Thread
I went to the PCW show last night, it was a decent show but felt like they we're stuck in 2nd gear. Hopefully they'll crank it up a notch tonight and really put on an awesome end to the tournament. From what I remember, the card went like this...
*Kris Travis bt Martin Kirby
Pretty meh start to the night, obligatory, going through the motions kinda match to start the tournament.
*Joey Hayes bt. Robbie X
This was my first time seeing Robbie X, I thought the guy was decent but didn't really do anything outstanding. He has one of those stretchers in his ear that made me cringe, thinking it was going to be torn at some point.
*Dave Mastiff bt. Jonathan Gresham
Gresham was the performer of the night for me, he came out to such a poor reaction but then absolutely smashed it in-ring. I'm sure he made fans of quite a few of the audience. I try not to be that guy who goes up and harasses the wrestlers when they're around but I thought I'd make exception for him because he deserved more crowd recognition...that being said, I think he was a little more interested in hearing what one of the local blondes had to say.
*Dave Rayne bt. Grado
This was my first time seeing Grado, I think he was a bit of a Colt Cabana UK guy but was still entertaining. Dave Rayne is so good at playing off his opponent and between these 2, they put on an entertaining show.
*Bubblegum bt. The Godfather
The Godfather turned up with his gear missing and with some strippers from a local club. They seemed really excited to be there which kinda hit home how some of the UK guys kinda have this blasé attitude towards performing in-front of crowds who pay to see them, where as these strippers where absolutely loving it...even though nobody actually wanted to see them.
*Chris Masters bt. Cyanide
This was what you expect, nothing too fantastic but still decent watch.
*Chris Hero bt. Noam Dar
The crowd started off mega hot for this match but then kinda fizzled out mid-way through and I felt the match kinda did the same.
*Mike Bennett w/Maria bt. Danny Hope w/ Mad Man Manson
As you'd expect, the pre-match segment between these lasted about as long as the match itself did.
*Team Single bt. AJ Styles & Lionheart
I think everyone saw this one coming a mile off, Lionheart turns on AJ and leads into tonight's match, was still good to see AJ doing his thing and Team Single heeling it up as they do very well.
