Topics I've Started

Bullet Club vs. Golden Lovers (ROH/NJPW Honor Rising 02/24/18)

Yesterday, 01:08 PM

THE LOVERS ARE BACK, BABY. This was just pure fireworks from START to FINISH; one of those matches where when it ended I went "man, pro wrestling's the goddamn best". Korakuen was ROCKING, Omega & Ibushi are absolutely wonderful together, the character work by all involved was great (especially by Cody who was on FIRE) & the all around storytelling combined with the atmosphere was just amazing. Lovely, lovely, lovely stuff. ****1/2

Mark Davis vs. WALTER (PROGRESS Chapter 63: Take Me Underground 02/11/18)

22 February 2018 - 07:07 AM

WALTER has his new t-shirt on that says "WALTER KILLS". Very fitting, because that was the story of the match. WALTER chops the soul out of Davis who tries his hardest to survive & throws some really good hope spots. A fantastic underdog tale with a hellacious monster performance by WALTER & a really good underdog fighting from underneath performance by Davis. ****1/4

Tyler Bate vs. Zack Sabre Jr. (PROGRESS Chapter 63: Take Me Underground 02/11/18)

22 February 2018 - 06:25 AM

Bate tried to match ZSJ's ground game & for a while he did get some good stuff going there, but eventually it became clear that he was getting outclassed by the best technical wrestler in the world; Zack had a counter for EVERYTHING Bate tried to do. After that it's "the usual" ZSJ torture show & as always, it's a joy to watch. Bate did a great job being the FIP; his facial expressions & selling were very good. Bate starts to wrestle with more urgency as he abandons the initial ground plan he had going, he starts to go with his high impact power moves & those sure are a lot more successful against Zack than the ground game he tried to get going. Very good storytelling. Great match. ****

The Chosen Bros vs. Ringkampf (PWG Mystery Vortex V 01/12/18)

21 February 2018 - 02:11 PM

A very good FIP segment w/ Thatcher to start things off; Thatcher sells it tremendously (no surprise there) & the work by Bros was good - especially by Riddle who's offense came off as super violent. Loved it. WALTER's hot tag was great, he came in & chopped the crap out of Cobb & Riddle. Now that lead to a FIP segment w/ Cobb & that was outstanding! Cobb sold his ass off & Ringkampf's work over him was terrific - they brutalized Cobb in such compelling fashion. Once Cobb finally got to make the hot tag to Riddle, Riddle came in with a house of fire~! & beat the crap out of Thatcher & WALTER for a while - that was until Ringkampf cut off his hot tag in amazing, strategic fashion. The finishing stretch sees them dominate Riddle for a while until Cobb sneaks back in after he had been resting for a while - The Chosen Bros deliver a couple of amazingly brutal looking double team moves to finish off an outstanding tag match. The selling of Cobb, the brutal offense of WALTER, Thatcher & Riddle, the fire of Riddle & the teamwork of Ringkampf make for an amazing package of tag team wrestling. ****1/4

David Starr vs. Matt Riddle (Beyond Spirit of 76 01/27/18)

20 February 2018 - 04:08 PM

This was a fantastic, intense battle between these two. They beat the crap out of each other w/ some truly great looking offense by both (especially Riddle) while telling a really good story of Riddle having the advantage for most of it & Starr getting more & more back into things as it went on. Between this & their CZW match from last year, I think it's safe to say that David Starr & Matt Riddle have quite great chemistry with each other. ****
