Any ****+ matches on these recent shows?

Postby TasotheGreek » Sun Jan 15, 2006 11:41 am

Hi, new to the boards, and have a quick question. These shows below, any matches that might be considered **** sars and up? I remember hearing Style vs Hero was exceptional from 12/3, and that Samoa Joe had a phat match with Richards. Any info on these shows and the top matches from them that would be MOTYC would be much appreciated from your boy on the east coast... BOOYA! :

Perkins, B-Boy b Chris Sabin (good bout), El Generico & Los Luchas b Alex Koslov & Ronin & Nemesis, Joey Ryan b Kevin Steen to win the PWG title, A.J.

At the very least, the Guerrilla Warfare match between Kevin Steen and Super Dragon.

12/16 has three matches (Joe vs. Davey, 2SBG vs. Strong/Evans, SD vs. Steen) that should really be seen. Dunno about four stars, but I think they'd all compare favorably with some of the stuff you have listed at DVDVR. Didn't go to 12/3 or 1/7. From the post-show reactions, I didn't really get the sense that either show had any MOTYCs, but other people could answer that better than me.

I'm not one for star ratings... but aside from the 12/16 matches onlxn mentioned above. I'd say Hero-AJ, Sky-Lost and Hero-Claudio will be well regarded once they hit DVD.

Of the three shows listed, I've only seen the 12/16/05 show, and in my review, I gave Generico/Tornado vs Strong/Evans a 4-star rating.

Lots of people liked the Super Drago vs Kevin Steen Guerrilla Warfare match more than I did, but I gave it *** 1/2. So others rating it at 4, wouldn't be ridiculous.

Joe's match with Richards was good, but not amazing.

I thought Steen/Dragon was on the **** level, probably in the **** 1/2 range. Other than what has been mentioned, I thought Dragon/Davey vs. Cape Fear was an outstanding match. Some might not rank it up in the four star range, but seeing it live I thought it was ***3/4 and it might go up when I watch the DVD because I missed some stuff. I don't think Joe/Davey was that great. It felt really quick but people told me it went around 20 minutes.
