So far, I've finished Cruisin' and watched half of Teen Outreach(Baseball, sleep and school have prevented me from enjoying them earlier) and have some thoughts.
Cruisin' For A Bruisin'
-Hero and Claudio is probably the best PWG opening match in the history of PWG opening matches. Their lucha work was worlds better than most lucha stuff I've seen in my life. A lot of the stuff they did was mind blowing, as it must be hard for guys smaller than they are to pull off some of the stuff they do. Claudio and Hero in PWG is rad! This was a great showcase of the stuff they could do.
-The six man tag was also really fun. I enjoy Topgun's comedy, a lot. Some people have been saying that it's been getting stale, but it's still fresh in my mind mostly because of the way he delivers his stuff. Ronin is also pretty underrated in my mind. People hate his look, but I don't watch wrestling to look at dude bodies, I watch it for play fighting. Ronin's offense is pretty rad.
-Joey Ryan's match with Tornado might of been the most fun match he's had since winning the title. The 4 Way was great for the wrestling, but this match a really fun atmosphere. The promo by Joey was pretty cool too, and the segway with his match to the Bosh/Lost match was well done aswell. Speaking of which, that match was pretty good! I remeber watching it live and enjoying it a lot, but the crowd was so dead during it. The Superman Spear Rana move that Scott Lost did on Chris Bosh was jaw dropping.
-Cape Fear vs. Dragon and Richards was an awesome match. Everyone went balls out, and is my second favorite Dragon/Richards title defense behind the GenNext one by a close margin. Dragon is an effect dickhead type heel that the fans loves and Generico and Quick played great underdogs. Everything flowed really well and everyone in the match did great. The Yakuza/Sunset Flip to the outside off the apron was an amazing spot. I don't like star ratings that much, but I'd give this a ****+ rating as everything was great. Must see match.
-The only problem I had was with the hardcam. The work was pretty bad on it. It was zoomed in too tight and it didn't follow the action really well. The floor cam was fine, the hardcam was gay. Still a really good DVD. Two must see matches and an awesome undercard. Plus TARO is on commentary, which makes things better.
Teen Outreach Summit
-Scott Lost vs. Jimmy Yang was a really fun match. Although Scott was injured going into the match, he did a great job and worked really well. It would of been awesome to see him work this match at 100%, but it's still good.
-The Lucha Six Man Tag was amazing. One of the best six man tags in PWG history in my mind. Everything clicked really well and everyone brought their A-Game. Ronin looked impressive in this, and Generico continued to kick major ass. There was so much fun stuff in this match, that I don't know where to begin. This match is worth getting the DVD for. Probably the most enjoyable six man tag I've seen in any indy promotion.
-The crowd making fun of Chris Sabin's hair was hilarious. Kevin Steen was hilarious in his match with Sabin aswell. The finish was ok as it helped things build up and it helped Joey look like a chicken shit heel.
-Daniels/Romero was pretty good. This was the most enjoyable Daniels match I've seen in awhile(along with his match with Low Ki at ROH) and was a fine match. The finish was pretty cool as it put away Romero right when things where starting to pick up.
-The Dragon/Richards-Luchas match was really good at first. Dragon acting like an asshole was amazing. He should of broken that dude's glasses. Zokre getting Dragon frustrated was pretty good, and it could of gone many different ways had the match progressed. Zokre held up really well and was able to hang with Dragon in the ring. Dragon fixing the bottom rope was hilarious. The spot with Zokre doing his Tope Fake into Phoenix jumping and rolling over him while he rolled backwards and doing a Springboard Tope Con Hilo was awesome.
The fun gets even better when Dragon's mini-riot starts up.
At first, I didn't think Phoenix looked that fucked up, as he was able to do some stuff after the curb stomp, which was what I thought injured him in the first place. The powerbomb through the table was awesome, as it looked good because you didn't expect. Aaron Hassan fucked up big time, as you could clearly see Dragon and Davey both roll into the ring and Dragon roll out. Dragon looking like he was going to kill Travis and Aaron and both of them running for their lives was hilarious. Dragon dragging out Zokre and beating him down with Davey was one of the most insane things I've seen in my life. Poor Zokre took some of the most insane powerbombs through tables I've seen in my life. And him kicking out of them showed that he was willing to take one for the team. Great stuff stemming from a shitty sititutation. The brawl at the end with Quicksilver and Tornado helped make things look better when they got involved after Dragon attacked Dino.
-I haven't watched the main event yet, but this show was really good. The chaos between Dragon and everyone was great. No bad matches, and everyone looked good except for that Dmitri Maskarsky.
