PWO – Season 5 – Episode 5

The battle of Michigan is the main event. Wolverines fighting is so much cooler than seeing two dumb mascots fight.

As Joe Dombrowski & Aaron Maguire, I can’t stop staring at the woman in the background not paying attention and tugging on her beer bottle label. The main event is going to be for the PWO Tag Team Title Match between the Sons of Michigan (“Amazing” N8 Mattson & Benjamin Boone) and Aeroform (Louis Lynden & Flip Kendrick). Jason Gory defends the PWO Televison Championship against Brian Bender to start the program. Maguire is acting dejected because Marion Fontaine did not win back the PWO Title. Bender knocked down Gory and clamped on a headlock. Bender slammed him then he rolled outside. Gory suckered in Bender and pulled him onto the second rope. They fought back and forth with Gory getting in more offense. Gory hit a Miz like corner clothesline. Gory sling shotted back in and drop kicked Bender. Gory put Bender in a reverse chin lock. Bender clubbed his way out of an attempted back breaker. A running jaw jacker by Gory got the momentum back for him. Bender caught Gory coming off the second rope with a urinogi. Bender back dropped Gory. Bender got a two count after an implant DDT. Gory slapped on a key lock submission attempt. (It kind of looked like an Anaconda Vice around Bender’s head.) Gory double stomped Bender off the top rope. Krimson came to ringside and threw a chair into the ring. Matthew Justice made the save.

Analysis: Maguire ended up selling the submission after the fact but they needed to get to mentioning it earlier since it was new. I had no idea it was a finisher and expected Bender to easily get out. Bender got in much more offense than I expected. Gory used too many big man moves in my book. He’s gone from high flyer to punch and kick offense. It’s less sloopy but doesn’t suit his slight frame. He needs to use his speed more still. The corner clothesline was a perfect example of using his speed because he almost made it look like a combination with a 619 he came in so hot. Score: +1.

Gregory Iron said that in one week he has a match up against Johnny Gargano. He vowed to bring everything he’s got. Iron said that this will be good for practice for taking on the Dead Wrestling Society, Kirst, Gory & Krimson. He said he’ll fight back even if he has to do it alone. Analysis: It was a nice little promo that got tied in his history with Gargano and his present with the DWS. Score: +1.

“Mr. RBI” Isaiah Bonds made his debut. (Oh boy. I just don’t like these types of gimmicks when it’s pegged to a profession. Even worse when it’s geared to one person. They billed him as being from McCovey Cove to boot. Yikes.) His opponent is Daniel Arkham. Maguire knocks it out of the park when asked what the wrestlers strategies would be in this match. He said “RBI is going to try and win the match.” Dombrowski quipped back “I couldn’t do without you, Aaron.” RBI knocked down Arkham with a pair of shoulder blocks. Arkham back elbowed Bonds then clotheslined him. An atomic drop put Arkham on a roll. RBI reversed an Irish whip and sent Arkham into a corner. Bonds clubbed down Arkham. RBI got reversed then tried to leap over Arkham with the aid of the ropes.Arkham gave Bonds a Side Effect for the win.
