Arm Strong 

– The Tag Team Qualifier opener between “The Rock God” Ricky Gibson/JJ Garrett and Azul Angel/Ian Sutton was an obvious move to get Mr. Tubbs’ latest tag scramble of clients into the fatal four-way that will also feature Marcus Malone/Mikey O’Shea and The Bonus Boyz. Did find it interesting there was more talk about Greg Romero’s disappearance, since it makes us think perhaps a return/babyface run in his future? Anyways, the Angel/Sutton team was about as mismatched as you could get (a hillbilly and a luchador? Make your own joke here)and the in-ring action was mediocre to average as the most interesting aspect of it was seeing how Garrett/Gibson interacted and it worked for the most part, as “opposites attract.” Doubt anybody was shocked to see Gibson get the pinfall with the Power Ballad.

A Brisco Bombshell

– Even though he seems to be who West Coast Wrestling Connection lugs out for anybody’s debut matchup, it says a lot about how great Ethan HD continues to look in the process. This episode’s marquee factor was in Wes Brisco’s WCWC debut (who already had a lot of work to do to shake off the “Aces And Eights” TNA stink) and that was handled nicely. These two meshed well in the ring and like you’d expect Kate Carney to, she was a factor early on. Ethan had new, slower theme music, which took us by surprise. Brisco’s covered in tattoos from the torso down, which could be distracting given his ring attire, but it also made him stand out in a good way. We never doubted the result, even if Ethan had one good near-fall. The clear story was Brisco’s big comeback to overcome Carney and beat Ethan on his first night. The Brisco Bomb also came off well as a go-to finisher.
