This year's BOTW looks really, really, really, weak and predictable. You have the one very obvious pick(Sky), then you have the two likely canidates who could be considered upsets(Koslov and Perkins), and the rest. I remember seeing BOTW 1 on DVD and it was really good, and it had great star power behind it that brought credibility to the name Best Of The West. This lineup obviously looks scrapped together, what with the top west coast talents being booked in ROH or IWA-MS that weekend. Ryan Drago was decent when I saw him, I'm not sure if Hook is still able to go, Bino Gambino is pretty annoying inside the ring with his weird gimmick and hasn't done much to impress me, and Instant Replay is pretty green and has a lot of room for improvments. Perkins doesn't interest me much. Sky and Koslov are the only two selling points on the show, and I haven't seen Infernal wrestle since 2003.
The rest of the card is pretty unapealing to me, and $15 price tag seems too high for my liking. This seems like a terrible weekend to book this show, with all the unavailable talent that could of been booked. This doesn't even seem like it should be called "Best Of The West" in my mind.
