Beyond Wrestling “Uncomfortable” Review

beyondwrestling062214

Although Ring of Honor’s “Best in the World” PPV prevented some of Beyond Wrestling’s usual players to be apart of this month’s Fete Music show, Beyond took the opportunity to highlight their homegrown talent, give some new talent opportunities, and bring back some past names. This show would see the debuts of Brian Cage and Brian Myers, the returns of ... Read More »

Beyond Wrestling/XWA “Secret Show: 6.22.2014″ Review

gmsi

Another FREE Secret Show! My typical format for reviewing these shows changes, reverting to my “play by play” mode, which honestly seems to better for the Secret Shows anyhow since it’s less about story development and more about the action. This month, Colin Delaney and Brian Cage make their Beyond debuts! That is neat. Latin Dragon vs. Ricky Reyes Reyes ... Read More »

#Rawlternative I Review

RAWlternative

With the second #Rawlternative coming up, I thought this would be a good time to finally share my thoughts on the matches that aired during the first version of this independent wrestling showcase.   After an introduction from Colt Cabana, the special starts with a Kevin Steen vs. Mike Bailey match from C4 Wrestling. They worked the big man/little man match to near-perfection. Steen excels when ... Read More »

AIW “I Choo-Choo-Choose You!” Review

AIW Choo Choo Grado

The end of 2014 was somewhat rough for AIW, but they looked to recover with a strong 2015 debut. With every title on the line, the debuts of some fresh talent, and some interesting match ups, it was imperative for AIW to kick off the year on the right foot.

wrestlecon1

This show can be purchased through our Highspots link. -Taped from San Jose, California Commentators: Excalibur and Marty DeRosa John Morrison vs. ACH PBP: ACH’s entrance is quite wacky as he takes forever to come out. ACH puts his jacket on the referee. Morrison and ACH take turns holding the official’s sleeve up. Bell finally rings and ACH wants sportsmanship. ... Read More »

Beyond Wrestling “UnBreakable” Review

beyondwrestling051814

The Young Bucks debuted on this show. If you haven’t already purchased it based on this very fact alone, I suppose I can continue on with my thoughts on the actual show itself. Most of Beyond’s Fete Music shows (all but one to this point) have opened with four way matches. This one was special though, as it featured the ... Read More »

Beyond Wrestling “Secret Show: 5.18.2014″ Review

5-18-SecretShow-SMALL

It is beginning to occur to me that Beyond used to do a lot of Secret Shows and now does not. After this show and last month’s, I am beginning to understand why. The opening contest saw Leon St. Giovanni, after losing to Kimber Lee last month, make an open challenge for any “man” to accept. The returning Black Baron ... Read More »

-Taped from Gibsonville, North Carolina Commentators: Jeff Todd and Amber Gertner The Great Sisaki vs. Solo Darling PBP: I love this venue every time I see it because it harkens back to the old NWA television and comes across really well on camera. This is a fantastic choice for QoC to run. I know some people dig Darling. Her gimmick ... Read More »
