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?

Once And For All

– We kicked things off with a decent opener between Marcus Malone and The Bonus Boyz’s Clutch Kucera, seemingly designed on paper to be a way to keep Malone’s winning momentum going by giving him an opponent that outsized him turned out a bit different. Sure, Kucera was put over by commentary for his old linebacker days and it helped Malone in terms of selling all the big moves, but we would’ve booked this a bit differently. The finish of Brown blatantly stopping Malone’s impressive Blockbuster finisher was okay, but that should’ve been a DQ win for Malone. Instead, the Referee throws the match out amidst the “controversy,” but what’s so controversial? Malone’s opponent’s partner stopped the pinfall getting physically involved. Albeit, Malone got the last word by cleaning house of The Bonus Boyz after the bell, but “moral victories” don’t get ’em over. You could’ve had the exact same thing play out and gave Malone another win.

Living The Dream

– The opening in-ring segment involving The Grappler, Marcus Malone, WCWC Legacy Champion Grappler III and Jeremy Blanchard was a nice change from the usual episode format, giving the chance for the young afro’d upstart rookie Malone to be put over by The Grappler as one of the academy’s brightest stars getting to “live the dream” with Malone showing that mutual respect back before the heartfelt moment became tarnished by The Wrecking Crew doing well, Wrecking Crew things. Malone/Grappler clearing the ring obviously created a bonding moment that actually things up for later in the show too.
