Poor start but overall the show was very good. Still, in my opinion some matches are just way too long. Young Bucks tag was amazing and made me feel even worse that Cole/Candice isn't happening.
I have to mention something that has come up recently and that's Davey Richards. I'm not going to go into our history, but as many of you know it is not a positive one. The bottom line is that none of you really care much about that. What you want is to get the most value for your money, see the best matches possible and witness memorable shows. I will never say a bad word about Davey's in ring ability. He is a special talent. That is why we were initially going to build EVOLVE around him. We have a fresh roster for him to step in the ring against. However, I have a major trust issue. I am still criticized to this day for never booking a second Samoa Joe vs. Low Ki match years ago. The reason I didn't is because I didn't trust the match to actually happen. The anticipation would have been so high for that match that it would have been impossible to recover from a cancellation. It is my greatest fear. There are times when injuries or travel mishaps get in the way, but we strive to deliver what we promise you and there needs to be trust that it will be deliver. So there is a lot to weigh here.

They do that because they want to giver everyone the chance to go out and have the best match of the night. That's what they want to do with their shows, have each guy try to have the best match that they possibly can. There is only so much you can do with limited time and PWG doesn't want to hold anyone back at all.
Actually, the recent trend with PWG is that the length really hurts many matches, all over the card. There's no reason for B-Boy & Mack vs. Avalon & Rosas to go 16-17 minutes when almost everyone got sick of them after half of it. The match was fun for 8-9 minutes, but then they lost the track and focus, which really hurt the flow and the story of the match. Same with every other match but the Bucks tag.
He did a dive off a balcony and BJW booked him off it I think. Danny Havoc mentions in his shoot that he believes BJW don't actually do any research before booking guys. After he nearly ruined the relationship he went back to train as a Young Boy afterwards.
I'm watching Matt Rushmore, only have the Main Event left but I really don't understand why almost every match has to go over 15 minutes... I mean, the opener was around 17 minutes for absolutely no reason, Strong/Gargano 25 fucking minutes, Best Friends/Fox and Swann 21 minutes, ACH/Steen was 16 minutes and the Main Event is 31 minutes long. In my opinion it's just too much for one show.
Everyone's gotta get their shit in dude, it's PWG!
