Alright, so, Metro Pro has been a huge disappointment for the last two episodes. I've always said that cheating should be a spice and not the meat and potatoes of a wrestling show. Three people in two episodes have now grabbed up a W via irreputable means. And what's worse, the Metro Pro Mid Card Titles (They have two which is ridiculous and is another story.) have changed hands twice during this period.
Just awful. Takes me right out of it.
For some reason I was under the assumption that ACH was leaving Metro Pro. I assume that's still the deal and this was a horrible send off.
Super bummed. The precedent here is a shadow over this promotion as it plants a seed for more of these shenanigans in the future. You don't wanna be like the WWE where all the bad guys have to cheat to win.
Felt like trying our Booker T's "Reality of Wrestling".Details will be a little rough but I haven't seen anyone else talk about them so I doubt I'll be offending anyone.
-All the matches were pretty basic. Mystic Q had a good look where you don't tend to see many Americans with masks and NOT be a junior heavyweight. Decent I suppose but then again I wasn't totally focused on the episode.
-Jared Steel vs. Alex Reigns went not the way I would have hoped. Within a couple minutes I was so much more interested in Reigns. I guess Steel has some squashes under his belt so I probably should see those before this. Maybe it made Reigns look better than I thought. Reigns doesn't have a special look but his body language was incredibly impressive. He constantly looked like he was ready to pick Steel apart. Steel eventually hit his finisher called the Steel Trap I think. Want to see more of Reigns.
-Main Event tag was billed as a "Dream Tag Team Match" and it disappointed for me. None of the guys seemed very impressive.
Overall I'd say that I need to watch next week's episode probably to make sure that I have an accurate grasp of things. This episode was not impressive. Where TCW is a product where the matches feel like they mean something this show felt mostly like they were give students and local talent a platform attached to Booker T.
Yeah, ROW is very hit or miss isn't it?
I like the rigging at the entrance but at the same time I don't think they pulled out all the stops to make their venue work.
They do some cool stuff though, right now they got this guy who paints his face up freaking out and attacking his best friend after losing to him. And his love interest is trying to calm him down. That's what I'm liking about ROW right now but that's about it.
