Yep. No wrestler ever improved by wrestling the same guys at his same level over and over again.

Agreed, it was something Matt Sydal said he wanted to keep getting better at wrestling to face better opponents but especially for the guys mentioned, those opportunities haven't struck by them yet to allow them to get better. I mean hell, I wouldn't mind PWG just added the 6man local guys to open the show for Only Kings Understand Each Other on top of the other matches announced.

Well, it would be an eighth match on the card, if nothing else. I'm not opposed to that.

Yeah, not like 8 matches on a card is complete overkill anyways especially if it just opens with local guys. Also I brought this up but regarding bringing new local guys, I would also say a nice time to also bring back PWG veterans in Scorpio Sky and B-Boy, who have been teaming lately anyways, as the veteran PWG guys teaming up and also work the newer local guys in opening tag matches as well.

I'd be okay with that, but I've heard Sky has a terrible attitude, and that's why he's not booked in PWG anymore. B-Boy I'm all for. He's always been great. I'd like to see Kevin Martenson and Yuma back, too, although I'm likely in the minority on this. PPRAY as well, although I'm likely in the minority on that as well. I just feel that, at least on the lower end of the cards, an injection of a little bit of local flavor wouldn't hurt all that much, and if some of those guys get over, maybe they could do something with them.

Besides Drake's debut match (which was incredible), the rest of B-Boy's last PWG run was soooo boring. From what I've heard Sky isn't around because he hates how PWG emphasizes fly ins over locals.

I heard it was more an issue of Sky being pissed he wasn't being paid as much as the fly-ins, which is laughable.

I believe Sky has talked about his issues but he's eased more lately and is willing to return anyways, then again who wouldn't want to return. But as for B-Boy, I would agree that aside for his match with Drake, he didn't do much or didn't have much higher profile match though I liked his 6man at BOLA 2012 but that was due to the antics of Joey, Richards, and Kyle. Personally, that is maybe why I would like see Sky and B-Boy back in PWG as a veteran team together because they can play off as the bitter veterans of PWG joining forces together.

B-Boy in a tag team would be fine with me. Scorpio Sky would make the most sense,too. But I was thinking about something a little bit different, a bit outside the box. What about Joey Ryan? Yes, Joey's probably too busy elsewhere these days, but they would actually be a pretty good odd couple tag team, I think. They have their prior history, and B-Boy's a serious guy whereas Joey's a weirdo. It could be interesting. Not very likely though. Or maybe a CWF Hollywood guy, like Tyler Bateman or something-a mentor and new guy type thing.

Joey hasn't been around since 2015... I think we should keep it that way...

Oh my God. Have they ever teamed up before? This sounds amazing.

Not as far as I'm aware; I can't imagine they travel in the same circles that often. I'd love to see it though.
