Bokara Meets The Boricua Beast 

– Nikos Rikos showed some good heel fire towards a rambunctious Rahway crowd, as he made it clear he was making moolah despite not wrestling because he sold his spot in the Suicidal Six-Way Championship match to The Big Deal Craig Steele, who came out with his Club Taboo entourage, including Sandy Mann. The crowd chanted along with his “My gear…” routine, so at least he was over. Interesting considering that Pat Buck mentioned on commentary that three-fourths of the crowd were “newbies” to Pro Wrestling Syndicate based on a survey done by General Manager Mick Foley earlier that night. The match’s other competitors included Champion Bobby Wayward (who has the best theme song ever), Starman, Brian XL, Johnny Howl and Ruthless Ray Smith. We had our six-way regulars like XL, Wayward, Starman and Howl, so we expected entertaining action and that’s how it played out mostly. Starman was over crazy with the crowd, while Wayward established himself early on with some stiff strikes and Steele took out his own entourage members when he tossed another opponent out of the ring, putting over his need for the belt. XL’s facial expressions sold a Starman “glitch” moment to be funnier than it should’ve been, but we would’ve never guessed that Starman was going to make a comeback and actually win the match. The pinfall on XL didn’t seem like a match-ending one as several guys looked to break it up, but failed. We’re happy Starman’s getting recognized as a Champion, but we were content with what Wayward was doing as Champ. The Title was the catalyst of his on-and-off conflicts with Untouchables stablemate Anthony Bowens and it’ll be interesting to see how things develop between them when the belt isn’t in play. The post-match angle that saw XL accept the New Jack/DelRoy offer to join them felt anticlimactic, but it’ll be interesting to see how XL develops as a character from it. So far, he has only been the guy who slaps fans’ hands and has a fondness for his ring attire.

The Dirtiest Martini In The Bar 

– The opening video chronicled the much-hyped three-way hardcore PWS Championship rematch where Dan Maff finally completed his personal comeback and emerged the new Champion, in a match chock-full of chairs, blood, barbed wire, staple guns, a 2×4, thumbtacks, tables and a defining Burning Hammer through a door. It’s the era of Maff indeed. Would’ve been nice to have some follow-up promos on this since it was the only time mentioned in the show, but perhaps it’s for the future.

Breaking Down The Door 

– Big Deal Craig Steele came out with his entourage Club Taboo, introducing Sandy Mann – who came down to the ring with style and class from the bleacher seats. Love the alliance of the two characters, as they’re a good “party” fit. Mann’s opponent was Johnny Howl. Okay, so the match wasn’t all that. Some rough spots with timing and styles, particularly the botched moonsault, but it served as a way to get Mann over with Steele’s help with the shot glass blast to get the win. Jake “The Snake” Roberts came out to deliver Steele some proper DDT-esque revenge. Is this going to lead to a tag match of some kind?
