Thoughts on some of the recent Kevin Steen Shows:
- Eddie Edwards one was probably the weakest. Edwards isn't terribly charismatic; Steen does a good job of trying to get him to come out of his shell, but it's a bit like trying to get blood out of a stone. Steen's still awesome; he has a particularly hilarious story about Ricky Marvin in a restaurant in England that almost makes it worth going through the whole show.
- Excalibur, on the other hand, was quite possibly one of the best, right up there with the Elgin edition. Steen and Excalibur show great camaraderie, much like in their PWG commentary, so this is a blast from start to finish. Some excellent CZW stories and of course a good chunk about PWG, this gets a big recommendation from me.
- The Paul London edition is rather shorter and they hardly go into biographical details (partly because it's been covered in the shoots with Kendrick, but also because London and Steen talk about random shit for the first 40 miutes) but there's still lots of fun to be had. I loved Steen talking about the time he bullied AR Fox into doing flips backstage. Steen seemed to revere London which was quite 'cute'; I wouldn't say he was star-struck but he was treating him with a respect and admiration we haven't seen with his other pals he's done the shows with. Of course, there's a ton of random, crazy stuff that we've come to expect from Paul London, so London fans are gonna love this, no doubt.
