Medically Released 

– Caleb Konley continues to light it up as the WCWC Northwest Pacific Champion, resorting to lowly tactics to keep his belt. His show-opening backstage promo put over his concern for “Gentleman Brawler” Eric Right’s sleeper hold as a dangerous move and pushed for it to be illegal in the upcoming Championship match. They got over that this was a heel clearly scared of a legitimate wrestling move that wasn’t actually illegal. The match itself stayed to the tame formula of their past encounter. Liked the little things like Right coming out without his “Mustache Brigade,” showing he was serious this time around. The twist here was even though Konley pushed for the sleeper to be illegal on Right’s end, he did the move himself and almost won, if it wasn’t for Right’s magic tonic, but when that backfired, Konley hit a back leg low-blow out of the Referee’s view to retain his Title. We’d say it ended there, but Right applied the sleeper after the bell and laid Konley out. Guess the feud will continue?

The New Generation

– After last week’s stellar introduction to sports agent Kate Carney and her establishment of clientele like The Bonus Boyz (BB) and Ethan HD, they continued to build off that with a backstage promo from Carney/BB where she again reemphasized her point that in this business, it was easier to make money than friends and BB wanted to make a name for themselves. The way Carney carries herself with confidence is impressive and her well-spoken nature definitely has our attention.

Once And For All

– We kicked things off with a decent opener between Marcus Malone and The Bonus Boyz’s Clutch Kucera, seemingly designed on paper to be a way to keep Malone’s winning momentum going by giving him an opponent that outsized him turned out a bit different. Sure, Kucera was put over by commentary for his old linebacker days and it helped Malone in terms of selling all the big moves, but we would’ve booked this a bit differently. The finish of Brown blatantly stopping Malone’s impressive Blockbuster finisher was okay, but that should’ve been a DQ win for Malone. Instead, the Referee throws the match out amidst the “controversy,” but what’s so controversial? Malone’s opponent’s partner stopped the pinfall getting physically involved. Albeit, Malone got the last word by cleaning house of The Bonus Boyz after the bell, but “moral victories” don’t get ’em over. You could’ve had the exact same thing play out and gave Malone another win.

The Vampire Obsession

– Cheap tricks and shenanigans were the name of the game, stemming from last week’s shocking ending where Mr. Tubbs played a physical factor in costing The Whirlwind Gentlemen the WCWC Tag Team Titles, allowing his boys, “The Rock God” Ricky Gibson and Greg Romero to be the new Champions.

Bottoms Up

– Unlike some wrestling programs that broadcast live on Monday nights, we applaud other companies like the West Coast Wrestling Connection for actually containing storyline consistencies. How simple is that for convincing television? Let’s get to the fun.

Eight-Ballin’

– It has been no secret that one of West Coast Wrestling Connection’s 2016 agenda plans call for a Jessy Sorenson push, as he has already racked up decisive wins against Darin Corbin and Ethan HD, flashing his forearm strike finisher as the difference maker. For some reason, we got another rematch between Sorenson and Corbin, the latter looking to break out his “ginger snap.” We liked the in-ring storytelling, with the scrappy Corbin taking advantage of Sorenson crashing his knee into the steel steps, utilizing his prone limb to keep him grounded and unable to pull off his signature power moves. The script appeared to pencil in another Sorenson victory once he hit his forearm strike, but Corbin fell out of the ring. Little did we know what’d actually happen with Hammerstone attacking Sorenson and leaving him out cold, as Corbin went back in the ring. Obviously, we welcome this since it gives Sorenson an instant rival and also gives Corbin a cheap victory, something he could always brag about.

Fresh Out Of The Academy 

– Despite his loss last week to Jessy Sorenson, who has been on a two-match winning streak this year, Ethan HD shined in the opening match with him and Cameron Cole, hyped as someone you don’t mess with. Cole on the other hand, was portrayed on the same level as Ethan having beat talent like Joey Ryan in the past and this set the stage for a back-and-forth contest that could’ve gone either way. Ethan worked a methodical pace, while Cole picked it up when he had the advantage. Commentary did a good job of putting over the fact that Ethan’s Blackout (aka Curb Stomp) finisher was a trick he could pull out of his arsenal at any time and low and behold, we had our finish. Don’t call it a comeback, kids.

Gangrel And Konley Meet Again

– We commend the solid job of Todd Keneley (of past TNA fame) and Jeff Akin as commentators, making new viewers welcome to the growing phenomenon that is the West Coast Wrestling Connection. They opened up the show by hyping the big main event for the WCWC Pacific Northwest Championship – Champion Gangrel taking on “The Obsession” Caleb Konley. Damn, autocorrect’s relentless on not letting us spell Konley’s name with a “K.”
