Living The Dream

– The opening in-ring segment involving The Grappler, Marcus Malone, WCWC Legacy Champion Grappler III and Jeremy Blanchard was a nice change from the usual episode format, giving the chance for the young afro’d upstart rookie Malone to be put over by The Grappler as one of the academy’s brightest stars getting to “live the dream” with Malone showing that mutual respect back before the heartfelt moment became tarnished by The Wrecking Crew doing well, Wrecking Crew things. Malone/Grappler clearing the ring obviously created a bonding moment that actually things up for later in the show too.

Who Do You Love?

– This was our first glimpse at “Gentleman Brawler” Eric Right, who came out with his Brawler Brigade (a cavalry of mustachioed youth, if you will) and basked in the spotlight after being gone for a few weeks. He definitely has his own cult following from the West Coast Wrestling Connection faithful and that came through in spades. Think of NXT’s Vaudevillains gimmick, but with its own modern spin. On the other side, we had WCWC Legacy Champion Grappler III defending his gold, with the tall and mighty Kassius Koonz at his side. The Wrecking Crew regarded G3 as a “fighting Champion,” though in actuality, he was a cheating Champion. The in-ring work was decent to a point, with G3 working Right’s head, neck and arms at various points, while Right coined a late comeback that was all for naught thanks to Koonz being a slight physical distraction on the outside, which bided G3 time to take advantage and get the win. Smart way to keep G3 on the winning track and you have to wonder just who’ll take down The Wrecking Crew.

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.
