Crowbars And Second Chances 

– In continuity’s interest, we were fans of the opener being the rematch for the WCWC Tag Team Championships between Champions Gangrel/Sinn Bodhi and The Bonus Boyz. You had the instant story of the angry former Champion jock heels on the prowl to get back their old gold from the fairly-new-yet-successful pairing of Gangrel/Bodhi. A big comedy sell for us was Morty Lipschitz on commentary as he sought out “legal help” (restraining order and advice from Judge Judy) against Bodhi. What we couldn’t forgive however, was the odd “sibling switch” they did with the heels. The Referee looked like an idiot in that he couldn’t tell the difference between Sugar Brown and Clutch Kucera when one of them had on a shirt and the other didn’t. That’s a little lazy now. Anyways, some nice back-and-forth action as expected with some good momentum twists towards the end to make it look like it was up for grabs. Since Gangrel/Bodhi just won the belts, we figured they’d hold on to them. That was until Kate Carney came out and laid down a crowbar which ended up being used by BB to regain the belts. Fun turn of events since we’ve seen BB/Carney aligned once before, as maybe it’ll finally become official. Not sure we would’ve had the belts change hands like a hot potato over the course of two weeks though.

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.

Time To Get Weird 

– The opening tag team match between The Shadows and The Midnight Marvels had the feel of a Marvels squash victory, but unraveled into something else entirely. The idea of the match came off like a wildly melodramatic off-Broadway rendition of “Spider-Man: The Musical,” as two masked superheroes battled three figures dressed in all black. We’ve never thought of The Shadow was more than a jobber, so the idea of a group with that pushed gimmick can be risky. We had thought the match had gone on far too long for a face squash victory, as the heels dominated throughout. There was a hot tag to Spyder Warrior, but the momentum didn’t last long and thanks to the outside factor of Miss Shadows, the heels actually won this. As far as their mission to “expand the sun,” well, we’re not so sure about that, but it could keep the Marvels busy for a while. At the same time, it probably hurts their image when they can’t even beat the lowly Shadows squad. That’s a somber show start if there was ever any. It could get cool if say, The Shadows “possess” Lemon Drop or something like that. Time will tell.
