Re: CZW Discussion Thread
For what it's worth, they only did a roof jump spot once in their 14 year existence. Twice if you include the Ryder Truck spot at TOD 1. While I do agree that a lot of their earlier stuff was quite horrid, I think they really got better when they brought in the younger guys who could wrestle a straight match. Guys like Nick Mondo, JC Bailey, SeXXXy Eddy, Arsenal, etc. I think CZW just started at a really shitty time for deathmatch wrestling in general. Back then, most guys did deathmatches because they sucked at straight matches, but if you look at the current CZW roster, or the deathmatch scene in general there are a lot more guys who can wrestle straight matches. (Masada, Drake, Danny, etc.)
On Nick Gage: I really want to see him back when he's released. I love him and so does the crowd. I can only hope that he's cleaned himself up because from all accounts, I've heard that he's a great person outside the ring and loves the business. I personally think he could come back and work on a much lower scale and still be loved. Be the guy giving the punishment, and not take a whole lot. With that being said, I do see and understand the argument that he should stay away, but if he were to clean up and work in a way that does less damage to his body I think he could have a successful return.
Plus, he's the only CZW original left. Lobo retired, Ric Blade retired, Wifebeater retired, Mondo retired, Nate Hatred retired, Pondo isn't with the company anymore, Zandig shows up once every couple of years, says Fuck a lot, wrestles a match and retires again, and Justice Pain...Well, Justice Pain is Justice Pain and he fucking sucks.
