Five More Minutes 

– America’s Most Liked Wrestling was back again with two more episodes (#64 and #65) with matches taped back from March’s “Never Enough” event in Yadkinville, North Carolina. The first was The Regulator (The Tommy Thomas’ new insect-esque client) against I.E.D., another masked individual apparently brought out by Thomas in some kind of confused scheme. This was just an impromptu squash with little substance. Regulator seems a bit limited in the ring, but shows good presence.

Kings Of The Ring 

– Continuing with matches taped at WrestleCade FanFest in Winston-Salem, North Carolina from Thanksgiving weekend 2015, we saw some good and bad this week. The opener between Shawn Schultz and Chance Prophet fell flat of any expectations. Emphasis was placed on it being Schultz’s AML Wrestling debut and he didn’t look bad, but there was nothing tangible there. On the other side, we had Prophet who rocked some sick face paint (Insane Clown Posse should take pointers) and a unique, methodical style, but too much of the bout was slow and plodding. No crowd reactions as Prophet applied submissions and Schultz sold them. Also wasn’t sure where Prophet fell on the heel-face scale coming from a first impression. Schultz sold well, but all that build up was for a simple DDT finish? Meh. Commentary sold the lack of reaction as a “stunned crowd” but we just don’t think anybody cared.
