Moving Forward, Looking Back

– If you’ve been following Pro Wrestling Syndicate, then you’ll know the intertwined history of PWS Champion Mario Bokara, Fallah Bahh and Dan Maff quite well. These three squared off sometime ago in a hardcore rules match for the Championship that stole the show and should be considered a Match Of The Year contender. The match embraced the hardcore in many ways – featuring staple guns, thumbtacks and chairs. Even without the action, the three characters all mesh well together in terms of who they are. You have Bokara, who is tough and technically proficient in the ring. You have Bahh, an utter beast in every sense of the word who could just smash you into pieces with his own body if he felt like it. Then, last but not least, you’ve got Maff, who has more than voiced his passion to become PWS Champion, coming so close many times, but falling short. When these three collide, magic happens. With it set to happen again, you could probably view it as  a “throwaway clip show” to feature all three men in their “breakthrough” matches, but it also did an excellent job to hype this big encore.

Quoth The Monsters, Nevermore

– Given last week’s shocking ending that saw Devon Moore turn on his longtime partner Kevin Matthews, joining the “Shining” Edward Jackson Family in the process, after Jackson revealed himself to be Helmet, it was good to see that covered in the opening video a la “fan footage” that sold the crowd’s reaction. Also liked the little flashbacks with all of Matthews’ interactions with Helmet in the past, building up to the turning point. What was disappointing here was that there were no follow-up promos or segments on this show. Something like Moore with The Jackson Family or Matthews vowing for revenge would’ve been perfect for this show. We’d imagine they’ll pick right back up on this angle, but they should’ve struck while the iron was hot.

Swerve City 

– The Tri-Force match between Eddie Kingston, The Lifeguard Mike Del and The Abominable CPA was an interesting dynamic to say the least, as it featured two big heel egos taking on the awkward accountant. It was also nice to see Nikos Rikos back on the show, as he’d been absent, making himself known as quite the hustler in a short time. Made sense for him to come out, cut a heel promo and sell his match spot to Lifeguard, but at the same time, we have to wonder just when we’ll see him in true action. His character has already been built as a hustler. It’d be nice to see more of his in-ring skills. Also, looking at a guy like Eddie Kingston, he has so much more potential to be tapped into in PWS, we just hope he’s at the top of the card sooner or later. The match was mainly all about CPA, with nice nods to video games with his moveset, which eventually had a helping hand in his victory. For what it was, Kingston’s facial expression holding the clip-on tie after getting pinned with a small package was priceless. As for where it stood with the rest of the show, the match felt insignificant. This was more of a way to remind us of CPA, which worked in that regard.

Foley Turns 50

– David Adams and Big Deal Craig Steele did a solid job setting up the night’s matches, especially going in-depth in the longest PWS rivalry between Habib From The Car Wash and Matt Macintosh, which spanned two continents and a deportation angle.

Double Trouble 

– It only made sense for The Aesthetic Enterprise to get put into the match against Monster’s Island as Bonesaw’s partners, only eager to wrestle once finding out Balls Mahoney would also be in the match. Bring on the many testicle puns. Where exactly do Phillip Simon II and The Scranton Strangler fit into things though? That was never quite explained to us. Doesn’t Bonesaw have no friends?

Helmet Hacks, Handicapped Heroes Have Heart 

– It would’ve been nice to follow up on last week’s highlights of Bobby Wayward regaining the Suicidal Six-Way Championship thanks to Matt Macintosh costing Habib From The Car Wash the match with a few aftermath promos or some kind of hype. At least it got a mention.

Stepladder To Success

– The show began replaying Chris Payne’s promo towards The Lifeguard Mike Del that provided a visual aide of a pool in the background with no lifeguard present as Payne spewed his usual catchphrase with confidence. Lifeguard’s promo segment was new and featured him dumping Ashley Massaro over the phone. Interesting turn of events as his new gimmick is that of looking for a new “beach babe” by using a magnifying glass, which sounds about right.

Cliffhanger 

– Sam Roberts’ backstage interview with Kevin Matthews touched up on his attacker, now branded as simply “Helmet.” Matthews brought the aggression and said he’d eventually get his hands on his stalker. Jake “The Snake” Roberts walking in telling Matthews to keep his eyes on the prize was a solid set-up to their upcoming one-on-one match.

O Katafertzis (The Hustler) 

– The pairing of Larry Zybyszko and The Abominable CPA was an odd, yet interesting one to say the least. Their match against The Aesthetic Enterprise revolved around the spectacle of everyone’s favorite socially awkward tax accountant teaming with the pro wrestling legend. Even the young up-and-coming heels got to display a wide array of offensive maneuvers, but nothing too saucy, as they came out with the win – Damian Gibbs pinning Zybyszko to be exact.
