How cool is it to see Ricky Morton going for the belt again? I think he could take it this time, I really do.
the episode of NWA Smokey Mountain was only so so though. I hate tournaments. here's the big one so far this week:
Portland wreslting uncut
Just a great episode all around.
Loved the Exile interview. It's great to see the cream rising to the top in this promotion. Mr. Ooh La La and the Grappler do a good job playing their parts. The bigger promotions don't have enough cool managers.
I'm kind of a freak for fashion when it comes to wrestling so it's good to see exile breaking up the green with the white boots and samoa joe tights. He might be a future champ and now he looks the part, I think.
Azul Angel vs Ricky Gibson was fun but that is the worst mask i've seen since aldo montoya. the modified hurricanranna was fun. I like it when the moves don't go exactly as planned.
Loved Colt Toombs and Patrick Large. Very entertaining team. They made a bet based around the time it took to beat their opponents. Large would have to buy drinks or Colt would have to introduce large to his sister. This is wrestling. Kind of.
How did Patrick not break a hip on that top rope leg drop?
Speaking about moves not going right, Large missed his "Tight Fit" twice in that match. Again, I don't mind it. There's something to be said about the unpredictability factor.
I don't know what to call that crucifix powerbomb type manuever though that made for it. Sick.
Fun fact: Buddy Rose trained Patrick Large. Did not know that.
Hope to see more of Dylan Divine. Thank God there isn't a pysch eval in this business.
Colt Toombs kipped up to catch DeMarcus James in a spine buster. Thoguht that was cool. DeMarcus walking the ropes also.
Fun fact, the ref in that match was Wade Hess's son. Youngest in the business if I'm not mistaking.
REspect to Josh Wilcox for stopping James from ramming Colt's head into the crows nest. Didn't expect that.
Tag Team Title match featured a new team, Jonas Robinson, trained by Lance Storm and Jarel Nelson. Loved the fact that Jonas acknowledged the jackson five reference.
Match was fantastic. The new team should be regulars in my opinion. despite their fashion sense. Bubba Blanchard's bubbaplex's are awesome, especially that sick sleeper/suplex combo. I think that guy's gonna be a heavyweight champ one day. he's just too cool!
Jarel's spinning dropkick came out of nowhere, liked that.
Gotta mention Jeremy's back elbow. Whatever you call that, looked great.
And Exile destroyed the scab with a powerslam, spear combo very cool, in the main event.
Commentary was awesome through out. I think Piper should do color but Josh is okay and Joe V is money on play by play and in interviews.
Can't say enough good things about this promotion. MIght have to buy the Blanchard brother t-shirts.
Anyway, updating my Youtube channel list:
1. Metro Pro Wrestling
2. Insane Championship Wrestling
3. Portland Wrestling Uncut
4. Traditional Championship Wrestling
5. NWA Smokey Mountain
No perticular order there.
