Kazarian is the fan favourite here, while ‘the Golden One’ Josh Galaxy is someone new to me. They work the opening around a hammerlock, Galaxy with a side headlock, and even though Kazarian shoves him off, Galaxy gets the better of the shoulder tackle. Kazarian barely manages a nip up so Golden has to delay and wait slightly before the next spot. A rough looking arm drag from ‘the Future’, followed by a big running splash in the corner. Golden reverses an Irish whip and Kazarian takes a bump over the top turnbuckle to the outside (although he clearly jumps and launches himself over). The action continues on the arena floor, but as this is being filmed by one static hard camera focusing on the ring, we don’t see any of it. Kazarian almost loses his balance on a springboard back in, having to grab the top rope, only for Galaxy to level him with a spear as he’s mid-air for a two. Frankie ducks a clothesline, jumps to the second rope and springs backwards with a flying elbow. Big splash off the top, but Galaxy is able to reach the ropes to stop the count. Slingshot legdrop for two. Galaxy backdrops Kazarian over the top, however he lands on the apron and a slingshot DDT (which he doesn’t quite get all of) back into the ring for another two. The ‘Golden One’ reverses an Irish whip, keeps hold of the arm and hits a ‘Downward Spiral’ as the two counts continue. Elbow off the middle and he still can’t put Frankie away. Boot to the mid-section by Kazarian, and as Galaxy is hunched over, a somersault legdrop to the back of his head. A couple of guys then show up at ringside, and as the one distracts the official, the other enters the ring and lays out ‘the Future’ with a modified sit-out powerbomb. He puts Galaxy on top, but Frankie kicks out at the last split second, getting a good reaction from the crowd in the process. Another random dude is now at ringside, he goes to hit Kazarian, but he moves and clocks Galaxy instead. Frankie slugs the random, covers Galaxy, and the ref (who was being distracted again) turns around to count the three. The heels jump Kazarian after the match (including a nice Russian legsweep off the middle as he’s celebrating to the crowd) and I think they set up a match for the following week, although the audio quality on the mic is pretty bad that it’s difficult to fully make out what they’re saying.
Another federation that I haven’t heard of before, and the venue is possibly a converted garage with only a small crowd in attendance. Galaxy and Kazarian are both real green here. There’s not much in the way of transitions, while there’s a lot of roughness in their execution with moves not executed crisply or smoothly. Bar that one near fall which the crowd brought, they also do that annoying thing of always kicking out of pins at two. It’s an interesting first look at Kazarian, and while you can clearly see he’s athletic, I wouldn’t go as far as to say you can see the potential of him being a good worker there at this point.
