Akira Tozawa vs. The Brian Kendrick (WWE 205 Live 05/23/17)

24 May 2017 - 07:21 AM

Tozawa as the fired up charismatic babyface seeking for revenge & Kendrick as the ruthless veteran using dirty tactics to try and shut up the kid. Awesome stuff. ***3/4


Matt Riddle vs. Tyler Bate (PROGRESS Chapter 48: Bang The Drum 05/14/17)

23 May 2017 - 04:40 AM

The finish was absolute dogshit, but it didn't take anything away from this incredible match. They went for an indy epic w/ lots of big moves, counters + nearfalls & they sure delivered one - all the while not going overkill. Fantastic stuff. ****1/2


Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Lio Rush (EVOLVE 85 05/21/17)

22 May 2017 - 02:21 PM

I almost feel bad for having so many ****1/2+ matches this year, but fuck me, this year has been incredible. Might be the best year ever match quality wise already. Yep. This was yet another match to add to that list of classic matches in 2017; it might have just topped Thatcher/ZSJ as my EVOLVE MOTY. I love me some one sided matches & this was exactly that - just one of my favorite offensive wrestlers in ZSJ torturing the shit out of Lio Rush, who happens to be one of the best babyfaces in peril in the world today. That is a recipe for success. ****3/4


Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal (WWE Backlash 05/21/17)

22 May 2017 - 05:43 AM

Holy shit! Randy Orton & Jinder Mahal having a WWE Championship PPV main event match in 2017 is already crazy to think about - and then you combine that w/ the match actually being AWESOME, and the whole thing gets even crazier. Loved the beginning w/ Orton showing great fire when brawling w/ Jinder all over the place. Great house of fire from him, most motivated he has looked in the ring in ages. Jinder's control segment came about very organically, with him eventually getting the advantage as they were brawling outside the ring. Him working the heat on Orton was goddamn great. He targeted Orton's shoulder every chance he got & it ruled. Orton sold it very well too & his big comebacks were tremendous. Just when it looked like Orton was going to put Jinder away, the Singh Brothers get involved. That was done real well. All in all, a terrific match. Really shocked by how good it was - Orton gave his best performance since, off the top of my head, 2014 & Jinder was awesome in his first real big time PPV match. Holy shit I sure was not expecting this. ****


Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles (WWE Backlash 05/21/17)

22 May 2017 - 04:52 AM

The 2nd half was absolutely wonderful w/ the focus being on AJ's injured leg; AJ played a wonderful face in peril while KO did some quality work over him. What prevents me from going ****+ on this is that the first half was an absolute bore w/ them doing your usual 50/50 boring movez action. ***3/4
