Awesome to see these guys get a shot... and rock the joint
I've been going to shows for quite a while now, every time I've seen a debut that person has a ton of buzz. Everett and Cedric definatly have that, trevor is virtually an unknown, so it was really random to see the guy debuting. Me and one other guy tried to chant his name at the begining, but everyone else chanted "who are you?"... by the end all three guys had their names chanted. Unbelievable crowd reaction.
Unfortunatly the crowd was spent after the opener, and they never really got as loud the rest of the night (they were close for the title matches).
PPA/RockNESS vs b boy/Mack/Joey was exactly what you expect, nothing to say really.
Roderick vs Nese was okay, I am not sold on Nese at all. He is a good worker, but I just can't get very invested into his matches, decient match.
The three team match was really fun, a ton of crazy stuff as you expect. Its amazing to see the flyers fly, but when Cage and Elgin do it its nuts. Again, really good, but probally won't blow your mind or anything.
Ciampa vs Hero was a really good match. Possibly Ciampa's best PWG outing. Good story about Hero hitting everything and Ciampa just being a bad mother fucker and dishing it right back.
O'reilly vs Gargano is where the show starts picking up. This is a dream match for me personally. Really slow to start (in a good way), and slow build through the match. Intresting to note that Kyle was the clear fan favorite in this match. When they extanged strikes Kyle got cheered and Gargano got booed. Kyle got "Next world champ " chants after.
Young Bucks vs Best Friends was awesome, tons of drama. What you would expect but in a good way. Cole's interferance pissed off the fans.
Cole vs Candice had even more drama. As the match was going on I thought she was gonna walk out as champ. There was that kind of atmosphere in the building.
Overall really good show some random thoughts:
The three North Carolina guys need to all be brought back, they had match of the night by far.
The two title matches were the second and third best matches, in no particular order.
It was great to see Candice get a main event, she has been working so fucking hard, expecially in the last year.
JT Dunn was with Shelly Martinez, but as a fan... I really hope he makes his in ring debut next time.
