PWG ALL STAR WEEKEND XI

NIGHT 1

Chuck Taylor vs. Mark Andrews - *3/4
A fine opener. I wouldn't call it good, but it wasn't necessarily bad either. Mandrews did his flippy stuff, and Chuckie T actually kinda worked the match as a big man, as he did some power moves.

Ricochet vs. Marty Scurll - ***1/2
The pre-match banter was great, and the match itself was awesome, as well. Lots of cool counters & sequences; and they didn't go into the overkill territory. Awesome stuff!

The American Wolves vs. Unbreakable F'N Machines - ***1/2
Well, this was much better than expected! I was afraid that this match would be all about all 4 men getting their shit in, with ridiculous amount of big moves & nearfalls, but that wasn't the case. Eddie & Davey actually worked the match as underdogs against The Machines. Big Mike & The Cage did their usual power moves, and The Wolves tried their best to fight against them. Really good match.

Drew Gulak vs. Sami Callihan - ***
Very intense, fast paced & action packed battle between the 2. Sami was on fire, and I am very happy to see him back in PWG. Good match.

Trevor Lee vs. Will Ospreay - ***
Trevor worked the match as a total heel, talking shit to the crowd, flipping them off & just throwing Ospreay around. And it was awesome. Ospreay got some of his shit in, during his comebacks, but the match was mostly dominated by Trevor, and I thought he did really well on that role. Another good match!

Mike Bailey vs. Kenny Omega - **1/2
This match was kind of a mixed bag. It had solid wrestling throughout it, some cool comedy stuff (CHAINSAW~!), but there was one thing that annoyed me greatly. Omega worked the hell out of Speedball's leg, and Speedball just pretty much refused to sell it. That kinda ruined what could've been a ***+ match for me.

The Young Bucks vs. Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa - *1/4
Didn't really like this at all. Bucks doing their thing was pretty fun, but Gargano & Ciampa do nothing for me. I think they are just awful.

PWG World Championship
Roderick Strong (c) vs. Matt Sydal - *1/4
This was so, so, so, SO disappointing. I wasn't feeling it at all. It was pretty slow paced, with no real story being told. Easily the worst Roddy title defense so far. Really dull stuff. The most disappointing PWG match of 2015, for sure. Oh well, at least the post-match stuff was awesome.

NIGHT 2

Chuck Taylor vs. Kikutaro - FUN FUN FUN
This was AWESOME. Excellent comedy match!

Marty Scurll vs. Timothy Thatcher - **

Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa vs. Unbreakable F'N Machines - 1/4*

Mark Andrews vs. Ricochet - *

Trevor Lee vs. Matt Sydal - *

Kenny Omega vs. Will Ospreay - *

Adam Cole, Roderick Strong & The Young Bucks vs. Chris Hero, Mike Bailey & The World's Cutest Tag Team - ****1/2
HOLY SHIT what a WILD match. Fantastic way to end PWG's 2015!


Your ratings are always a joke.

Joey Janela is the white AR Fox. I haven't seen a ton of his work, but one of the first matches of his I saw was at a Beyond Wrestling Secret Show. The venue they run those shows in is a Training School and have a ring similar to the one Chikara used to have (The one what was only like, a foot off the ground). He did a Swanton from the top rope to the apron. I've seen a lot of shit in wrestling, and it made me cringe seeing that spot.

The match with Rush was the first one I've ever seen from him and I can already see that being true. Guy was literally LOOKING to take bumps it seemed like. I swear he never made it the top rope and came off on his own power.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

The first time I saw Janela was at last year's CZW anniversary event.

The AR Fox comparisons are startling because that's not the worker I saw just one year ago. I think the match I think @sXeMope is talking about is Janela vs Gary Jay. I did take note of the stupid bump but didn't make much of it. But if that's the case, it seems as if he's doing it to make a name for himself and put himself out there. He recently did a no-rope barbed wire match in OPW so he definitely wants it. I think he has a lot of potential and I hope he gets the big break he's looking for. Otherwise, he's not going to have a career by 25. Then again, the same was said about AR Fox so who knows. I just think Janela is way too talented to be relying on big bumps to get over.

I don't remember the specific match, just that one spot. I agree that he's doing stuff he doesn't need to in order to make a name for himself, but the same can be said for most of the guys on the indies. A while ago he wrestled a match against an invisible man, and he's a rare breed of Junior Heavyweight that actually has a character/persona that goes beyond being a guy who can do flippy stuff. He could probably do pretty good for himself on that character alone.

I could be wrong but I feel like he's already over 25. I remember one of his matches, the commentators mentioned that he's been around for 10 years but only just now making a name for himself.
