PWG Fear DVD Review

Jerome Cusson

Jerome Cusson has been a professional wrestling fan since late 1994. Having started out as a fan of WWF, he eventually expanded his horizons into WCW and ECW. After the unfortunate deaths of these two companies, Jerome's interest in wrestling nearly came to an end before he discovered independent wrestling. Let the love/hate relationship with wrestling continue.

    That GTS like thing TJP does is called the Detonation Kick. I’d say that the PWG tag titles have been more important than their world title for years. PWG has to be the only company that would have a match between SSB and the Wolves, and not have it be a squash. Good for them. Hope both teams are in DDT4 this year. The only thing I don’t like about PWG is that Candace LaRae’s shtick is very, very played out.

    Oh, and before I forget-Super Dragon has an AURA. Not ora.

    Hehehehe. Oh man, as soon as I saw “ora” I knew wrsisyphus2 would pounce on that. Haha. Good read here though, and man, what a dvd this was. The last three matches all felt like main events. It seems like right now, the only other promotion besides PWG that looks to be giving the SSB any sort of push (or even just decent match lenth) is Evolve. But they don’t have anywhere near the focus on tagging that PWG has. They have maybe one tag match per show, and just broke up one of their top teams in Up In Smoke. Hopefully the SSB become regulars in PWG, they are pretty over right now.

  4. @wrsisyphus2 I bow to your superior spelling skills and have edited my error. Also, I have never heard Excalibur refer to the Detonation Kick. Guess it’s possible I miss some commentary.

    Look in the mirror sometime? I’m 130lbs? Hero is in a profession where physique is certainly part of the prerequisite (at least post-’80’s). That’d be like a film critic giving an opinion on a director then being told to finance and shoot his own film once and awhile.

  6. wrsisyphus2 says:

    Sorry about the spelling nazi-ing. Anyway, I just mentioned the Detonation Kick name because that’s what ROH’s commentator Kevin Kelly has called it when he’s worked there. Maybe it’s called something different in PWG, or hasn’t been named there yet. It just helps to have a name to put to the move, really.

  7. Jerome Cusson says:

    @Brian My point with the Hero comment had to do with some people who were talking about him being out of shape. Of course certain wrestling companies emphasize physique over skill, but Hero’s performance was in no way adversely affected by how he looked, yet people were still open to criticize what he looked like. I also don’t think your film analogy works at all. If I was criticizing individuals for their performance in the ring and saying others couldn’t do so, then your point would be valid. I appreciate your comment though and the opportunity to explain myself.

    @wrsisyphus2 Never hesitate to correct mistakes in our reviews. I appreciate being told when I’m wrong so I can correct the mistake in expedient fashion. Also, it should say a lot about ROH that I never realized what Kelly was calling the movie. I really must be zoning out the announcers.

    I wish some of the silly move names that happens during PWG commentary would carry over to other promotions. When Steen hit a Finlay roll on Pac and Excalibur and Chris Hero dubbed it the “Steen-Roller” (accompanied by an audible high five!) I cracked up.

    And I mean really, who wouldn’t want to hear Kevin Kelly call a TJ Perkins match with, “ooooh, he hits the 1970s style abortionator!!!”
