AAW: United We Stand Review

July 23, 2016 Opening Match:  Candice LeRae vs. Buck Nasty vs. Dezmond Xavier vs. Davey Vega vs. Colt Cabana LeRae spends the opening minutes fighting off Vega and Nasty.  She takes out Nasty with a rolling senton from the apron.  Xavier uses Cabana’s back to land a dive to the floor.  Everyone proceeds to do some unnecessary comedy.  Cabana tries a ballsplex but gets grossed out.  LeRae hits the ballsplex on Nasty and Vega.  Cabana peppers them with bionic elbows.  Xavier lands a space flying tiger drop to the floor. …

Next, these are two guys who can have an excellent match without relying on the super indie style. This is very…

ROH 8/6/16 TV Review

ROH 8/6/16 TV Review This week’s show is the second to last before the Death Before Dishonor PPV emanating from Las Vegas. The show started with a video recap of last week’s episode, highlighting the rivalry between Adam Cole and Jay Lethal. After Lethal rolled up Matt Jackson earning the win for himself and the Briscoes, the Bullet Club used a chair to incapacitate Jay Briscoe before unapologetically attacking Lethal, shaving his head. Clips of Lethal justly reacting in anger to the disrespect fade as the opening sequence commenced. First…

Tier 1 Wrestling “Meteoric” Review

Last time I did a review of Tier 1 Wrestling, “March to Victory” was another ascension up the ladder for Tier 1 Wrestling as it was a pretty damn solid event and easily the best Tier 1 show up to this point. Tonight promises to be just as good and with a thankfully less extraneous run time. However, with big names like Big Damo (joke intended) and Homicide on the card, though there is less run time, I expect just as much great wrestling action.   Milk Chocolate originally comes…

Revolution Pro Wrestling Summer Sizzler 2016 Review

Taped from London, England RPW British Tag Team Championship: Charlie Garrett & Joel Redman (Champions) vs. Jody Fleisch & Jonny Storm vs. The British Young Bloods (Bruce & Jake McCluskey) vs. The Legion Of Lords (Gideon Grey & Rishi Ghosh) Garrett and Redman just won the titles over Samuels and Castle, so this is likely a title defense to help get their title reign over. I for sure can’t stand two of these teams (Legion of Lords and Fleisch/Storm) and am indifferent to the other two teams. Gideon Grey cuts…

ROH 7/23/16 TV Review

ROH 7/23/16 TV Review This week’s show was from the television tapings after the Best in the World PPV. The show started with kevin Kelly telling us that the full hour of the show would be dedicated to a title match between ROH World Heavyweight champion Jay Lethal and Kyle O’Reilly. The foresight is a little lacking though. If the match does not go the hour, what will they do with the rest of the time? Kyle made his way out to ringside, but before Lethal’s music hits, Adam Cole…
