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?

Wrecking Tradition

–  The WCWC Tag Team Championship opener between Champions Greg Romero/”Rock God” Ricky Gibson and Mikey O’Shea/Crash Test Cody provided fun action and furthered their little feud as of late, with the punk juggernauts vying valiantly for the gold, which sat comfortably on the waists of Romero/Gibson. Liked how commentary established early on how Romero uses the t-shirt wrapped 8-ball to do his dirty work and pointed out the shirt’s location throughout the match. Both teams were evenly matched, with some shiny amateur-esque ring work, particularly between Romero and CTC, which was nice to see. The build to the hot tag to O’Shea was well-done and we questioned why O’Shea would tag back out so quickly, but it didn’t take long before CTC had his crossface applied and this was the first time it looked like the heels were in true jeopardy before Mr. Tubbs provided enough distraction on the outside where Romero walloped CTC with the 8-ball to again make the difference, retaining the belts. There’s no stopping G n’ R at this rate.

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.

Don’t Make Friends, Make Money 

– 2016 has been friendly to Ethan HD’s singles resurgence, flashing a winning record, but perhaps missing that one factor that could push him to the top of the card. The Bonus Boyz definitely have a tag team presence, almost as “athletic jocks” of sorts. While Sugar Brown and Clutch Kucera each excelled in singles competition, they were glorified jobbers as a team and nobody took them seriously. This episode took care of all that, as we saw the debut of Kate Carney, their new valet with a character of a well-known sports agent. Close to ROH’s Veda Scott character yet rocking a swagger like Zooey Deschanel, Carney makes it work. We were introduced to pieces of the new stable with an opening backstage promo from Ethan/Carney and we couldn’t had been happier.

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.

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.

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.

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.”
