Just saw on Highspots that PWG did another ASW. I've yet to pick up ASW 11, so that's $120 I have to spend in PWG. Needless to say, I won't be picking up anything until there's a sale. I was originally gonna get ASW 11 on DVD but seeing as they did 12, and seeing as I'm OCD, I don't want my collection to have anymore DVDs once I go Blu Ray with PWG. Unless, PWG Blu Ray isn't worth the extra $5 as most companies don't even put out Blu Ray quality shows. It often looks more like Youtube 720p quality.

Watched the Many Adventures of EL GENERICO DVD over the last couple of days.

:banderas :banderas :banderas

Disc Two esp has to be one of the fucking GOAT wrestling discs out there. :mark: Watching Generico/Ricochet, Generico/Shingo esp for the first time was bloody marvellous. I've left the Seven triple threat match until last as I adore that match so I'll watch it later.

PWG Blu Rays are worth it IMO. Quality looks phenomenal compared to DVD.

Is it just me or are PWG relying on this All Star Weekend gimmick a lot lately? I've heard that they want to run more double shot weekends but it would be cool to see them change it up a little. Dedicate one to DDT4 and bring in more great tag teams. Maybe I'm wrong but it feels like there are more shows these days that are ASW than not.

Only reason I never got that Generico set is because I already have all three volumes of Sells Out which basically has 95% of the matches on the Generico set. And that says A LOT about Generico.

And I'll take the gamble with the PWG Blu Rays when the time comes. And I'm not a fan of the weekend approach if they're gonna do it like an ASW type thing. Would much prefer something along the lines of Beyond's approach where they do an A-team/B-team weekend.

I know it's only $5, but I can't justify blu-ray for my movies/wrestling shows. It's just not that much better to me.

I like the DDT4 double shot idea.

If nothing else Wrestlecon match cards are very interesting and always one of a kind. And inevitably I always find them enjoyable. Hoping the Team Joey Ryan vs Team Jeff Jarrett match is as fun as last year's Team Hero vs Team Cabana. They ended up with some really odd, interesting teams that made for a fun watch.

With that being said I see them killing Mike Bailey in that match. RIP Speedball. And of course Fox will kill himself....oh god, the crazy shit he will do!

Review of the recent UWA Hardcore show. While writing this I realized that my reviews kind of suck, but it's something haha.

UWA Hardcore: Reincarnation

Joe Gacy vs. Cloudy
- Really good opener. It's crazy how good Joe Gacy has gotten and Cloudy is still really good in the ring despite being away from wrestling for so long.

Joey Janela vs. Sam Shields
- Decent match. I was somewhat distracted so I don't remember a whole lot from it.

Pinkie Sanchez vs. Cheech
- A really good match between two guys who are really under-rated. Nothing else to say about it honestly.

Epitaph vs. Corey Mason
- Epitaph wrestles as Mike Rollins on the Canadian indies. This was a good match, but again nothing really memorable. My first time seeing Mason wrestle here and he's a decent talent. Would love to see more of him in other places.

Facade vs. Jason Kincaid
- Probably one of the better matches on the card. Facade is another guy who's gotten really good over the years and he and Kincaid mixed well. Kincaid has really grown on me recently. Hope to see him show up in more places as well. I've heard the name for years but never watched him until he showed up in ROH recently.

Facade vs. Blk Jeez
- Blk Jeez came out after Facade/Kincaid and cut a promo about how all the younger guys care more about their flippy shit than telling a story. It lead to Jeez/Facade. It was surprisingly good.

Lionel Knight vs. Rip Impact
- Rip Impact on the main event of a show is something I never thought I'd see. I like Lionel Knight but I feel like he's a tag team guy and I don't really care for him as much as a singles wrestler. This was good for what it was. A little off to put this as the main event, but I guess it was something to send the old school UWA fans home happy. Personally looking at the people booked, I would have liked to have seen Checkmate vs. Up In Smoke. I'm not sure what Bishop is doing these days but from what I can find he's wrestled as recently as October.

---

Overall, a decent show. I hate star ratings, but if I had to put a star rating on this show, I'd say it's overall a *** show. Nothing was really -bad-, but there was nothing on this show that will leave people talking for years. My only real complaint is the lack of homegrown UWA talent. There was no Osiris, no Checkmate, no Blue Jabroni, no Nick Watts, etc. I'm not sure where some of those guys are these days, but they would have helped make it a "UWA" show. Aside from the main event, this show felt like just another indy show. An indy show with amazing production value, but just another indy show. I don't know if this was a one-off or if the plan is to have it back as a regular thing, but overall I enjoyed this show and I would watch future shows.
