Beyond Regulation 

– This round of reviews will chronicle AML Wrestling LIVE’s Episodes #68-72 and an “online exclusive” bout. It has been some time since AML had been around, so we were eager to dive into the pool. The Online Exclusive match between The Regulator and JR Reynolds was the result of Regulator’s (a masked, agile Braun Strowman-esque monster) backstage assault on his former opponents in a tag team called LaBron James. Yes, that’s their names. A constant with these episodes was that the mic audio was hard to pick up with the crowd out there. Luckily, Regulator had a great manager in “THE” Tommy Thomas and we didn’t even need to hear him to get what he said. Reynolds came out as “the next victim” and had a fair, though generic build with a beard, tattooed body and muscles. It was noted to be his debut, as he expected a Regulator squash at the least. Commentator Blake Chadwick noted the improved entranceway, though it looked unspectacular. The match’s story was decent as we saw Regulator dominate early on with a body scissors submission before Reynolds battled back. In fact, this was the most vulnerable Regulator has looked, especially when he almost lost after Reynolds hit a modified frog splash. However, as quickly as that came, the momentum switched again and Regulator hit his double underhook sit-down powerbomb finisher to end it. Might we suggest they name it “Pure Regulation”? Anyways, Thomas’ post-match promo christened his protege a “future Champion” as he bullied around Interviewer Tim Blaze.

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. The real show was Thomas on the outside, who spews charisma from left to right. Liked the emphasis placed on Regulator’s shoulder-breaker driver as that was how it ended the first match.
