PWO – Season 3 – Episode 3

Corey Winters & Eric Ryan came to the ring first to take on Hobo Joe & Jason Bane. Aaron Maguire did a good job of pumping up the Winters & Ryan.  Bane started the match against Ryan. The much larger Bane took control but Ryan bailed to ring side for a breather then tagged in Winters. Bane continued to use his size and power advantage to dominate. Bane tagged in Hobo Joe who got in some offense including a rolling senton. Winters took over then started to tag in and out with Ryan working over Hobo Joe. Hobo Joe finally got the hot tag to Bane.  Bane hit a nice t-bone suplex and then belly to belly overhead suplex. Maguire left the announce booth to take a closer look at the action in the ring. He grabbed the ring mic and started bertaing Bane. Maguire said he was putting a $10,000 bounty on Bane’s head. Bane chased after Maguire to the backstage area. Corey Winters rolled up Hobo Joe while he was distracted and got the three count.

Analysis: Maguire had questioned the veracity of the tag to Bane at the end but it looked fine to me and the referee. That means Hobo Joe shouldn’t have taken the pin fall. The match was a good basic tag match with the smaller guy on the face team getting the beat down while his larger partner took charge when he was involved. Bane did look slimmer and more toned which Joe Dombrowski noted. If Maguire stays in the booth, I’m not a big fan of the bounty on Bane. I’ll let it play out for now though.
