Vampire In Pain 

– The JJ Garrett-Owen Travers match was a great opener, all things considered. After Travers lost in his West Coast Wrestling Connection debut, this seemed to be an “all or nothing” scenario. Luckily, he had the right opponent in Garrett who could always bounce back from a loss. Garrett pranced around like the pretty boy he is while he donned a hilarious “King Of Swag Style” shirt. Travers killed it on the mic again with his pre-taped promo. This guy exudes energy and WCWC has a big star on their hands potentially. Commentator Morty Lipschitz made it known he didn’t care about the match, as he was still upset at last week’s events when he was humiliated when he couldn’t handle Eric Right’s magic tonic. There was a cool cliffhanger early on where Garrett practically German Suplexed Travers out of his soul. Understatement to say he sold that well. The “story” only got better from there as Travers fought back hard with some excitable aerial kicks and got the crowd incredibly into it, as they were amped for the Big Splash finish as Travers pinned Garrett. Haven’t seen the crowd amped like that in a while. To be fair, this was a bigger crowd than usual for a taping, but the energy carries to the television viewer too. Also liked the added “replay” feature so we could get a second look at Travers’ journey to the “W” side of things.

Doing A Solid 

– The opener between Darin Corbin and “Adrenaline” Adrian Matthews was good for what it was, as the relative newcomer took on the feisty redhead. As always, Corbin was gold with the way he played off the crowd and sold the perfect heel facial expressions. On the other hand, Matthews was dry on the mic, but has thankfully improved in the ring. The two kept things interesting throughout, as we saw a pompous Corbin have Matthews beaten with a facebuster, but purposefully lifted his head off the mat to continue the punishment. This was Matthews’ opening to score the upset and that happened a minute later on a small package pin. Corbin got nice heat with the Ginger Snap for retaliation, which then drew out the team of Marcus Malone/Mikey O’Shea to make the save. We liked how it turned out since Matthews got the win and the rub from the company’s ultimate “good guy” team.
