Eddie Edwards seems to be getting the build up with the singles wins the two nights, over Generico the second night. I'm not a fan of Edwards, and loath the concept of him actually winning the title to the point that I'd stop going until he dropped it. But I also don't think Claudio should or will drop it quite yet, hoping he holds it through the year to set the new record for length of holding the belt. But even if he does drop it this year, it seems more likely to come after BOLA. So I'd just as soon see Eddie, like Joey, get the title shot and loss sooner rather than later.
Steen is over like hell, but challenge for the title doesn't make a damn bit of sense:
Cyanide: Steen over Tozawa
Russellreunion: Hero over Steen
ASW: Mack over Steen
A two match losing streak in singles matches. You'd think the Board of Directors would "want" him to win at one singles match leading into being given a title shot, or go the Generico route of taking a tag fall off the Champ.
BTW... did anyone else notice how Joey was able to avoid giving back some of that mega singles push he got by, after losing the title shot, doing a couple of singles jobs to people being built up toward Claudio? Instead he slid over into the pushed tag combo, the team getting wins both nights? Wait, he also ducked the DDT tourney where he would have had to be in the losing end of a tag match, instead getting the cheap heat match with Candice. Okay...
Back to the Big Belt...
I'd like to see Generico built up later in the year for a shot after Claudio has run the table with everyone. The match was Russellreunion was very good, just coming at the end of a extremely long show that started extremely late and wasn't exactly infront of PWG's core crowd. Despite all that, they had good heat all things considered. I'd love to see them do it in Legion Hall, but after we see Claudio with everyone else. He's been a helluva champ, and after having the title bounce around all over the place since Hero dropped it with a pair of vacatings and the third being a one-and-out reign, it is time for a nice long run.
