#PrimeWrestling – Season 6 – Episode 7

I don’t normally do this but there are times to make exceptions. If nothing else, go to the main event and listen to the commentary. Aaron Maguire kills it while Joe Dombrowski plays his part well. On with the review.

Gory came out to start the show. Louis Lyndon was his opponent. Gory attacked Lynden from behind as he tried to pump up the crowd. Action went back and forth. Lyden took Gory over with head scissors. Gory rolled out of the ring after a spinning heel kick. Lynden got pulled to the outside. Gory dropped him over the guardrail. Gory locked in a reverse chin lock. Joe Dombrowski was describing Gory as sadistic while this move was going on. Bad timing on his part. Lynden reverse thrust kicked Gory. A jaw jacker by Gory got him back on track. A neck breaker only got Gory a two count. Gory climbed the ropes to jump on Lyndon’s back and bite his head. Gory gave him the thru the ropes clothesline. Sling shot knees by Gory only kept Lyndon down for two. Lynden punched and kicked away. Bicycle kick followed by a Sick Kick got Lynden a two count. Lynden caught Gory with a boot as he charged into the corner. Lynden got pushed off the top ropes. Gory followed with a double stomp for the win.

Analysis: Good match. Both guys did their part. Despite Dombrowski’s bad timing, he and Aaron Maguire did a good job of noting Gory’s real sadistic acts and pumping up Lyndon so that it looked like a hard fought win. Score: +1.

Prime Wrestling shows an add for an iPPV Saturday February 16th called Pressure Rising. I’ll have to check my schedule. Dombrowski & Maguire send us to some secret footage. Jason Bane was laid out in a parking lot. A car sped off just as Justin LaBar found him. Analysis: There are times that make me think anyone could act. This time wasn’t one of them. Score: -1.

Marion Fontaine, Vic Travagliante, Jeremy Madrox and Ricky Shane Page were at a bar. Vic takes the lead. He brags about being an undefeated and that he’ll outsmart Justin LaBar no matter what idea he comes up with. Page was next. He was not sorry about knocking out Jason Bane in the parking lot. BOMB – Brotherhood of Mustached Brawlers will be a tag team comprised of Marion Fontaine & Jeremy Madrox. Vic accepts the match on the condition that Justin LaBar steps down if they win. If LaBar’s team wins, Vic will leave Prime Wrestling. Analysis: Vic nailed it with his asshole mode. Ricky Shane Page doesn’t strike me as off his rocker scary. More like, I have sympathy for a scary mentally handicapped person. We know those people like shiny objects, but holding a large nail doesn’t make you seem crazy. I love the idea of moving Fontaine away from the Prime Title picture and having him in a tag team. Makes that division reappear for this company. Score: +1.

PWO – Season 5 – Episode 13

This makes your review pointless.

Joe Dombrowski and Aaron Maguire introduce the show. Matt Cross defends the PWO Title against Bobby Beverly. “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine takes on Corey Winters. Bobby Shields with Nicki Valentino kicks the show off against Bryan Castle who didn’t have Brian Bender. The ref did the old school pat down. Shields starts with punches. Castle hip tossed Shields three times. Castle slammed him. Castle waved at Valentino. Shields attacked him from behind on the floor. Shields missed a chop and hit the post. Castle started to attack the hand. Valentino held Castle’s leg so that Shields could attack again. Shields kneed Castle in the gut. Shields choked him. Shields missed a splash. Castle put on the head band and clotheslined Shields. Castle drop kicked him. Shields got splashed. Castle low clotheslined him. Valentino distracted the ref. Shields kicked Castle in the face. He only got a two count. Shields got tossed over the rope and noggin knocked with Valentino. Castle tried to suplex Shields back into the ring but Valentino grabbed his leg. Shields countered into a splash and Valentino held the legs for the three count.

Analysis: Really good match up. Well wrestled and well executed. It protects Castle but Shields gets the win. Well done sirs. Score: +1.

Krimson tells Jason Bane that Wrestlelution was not going to be their last meeting. He says he’s been in a no DQ match with Bane and he knows what’s coming. Krimson said he learned from his mistakes and will not repeat them. Krimson tells Matt Mason to walk away before he drowns in a sea of misery and despair. Analysis: I’m just digging this dude right now. Really thoughtful evil promos. Score: +1.

Jason Bane states the stipulations in the match. He says that if he needs to become a monster to beat Krimson and will do it. Bane promises to become the most brutal of them all. Analysis: It’s a tough spot. I thought it got the point across but he followed Krimson so it feels worse than it should. He’s just not that great at mic work but Bane has improved. Score: +1.

Matt Mason said that he can’t get a response from him. Mason said that he’s going to get a hold of Krimson. Mason is calling him out on his sickness. Mason said he’s tired of Krimson trying to crush other people’s dream. Mason said that if Krimson can’t stop his own sickness, he will. Analysis: He could have used a little more pep to really nail this thing but he needs to pivot to more than an observer at this point. This promo seemed pointed that way. Score: +1.

Marion Fontaine came out first. Corey Winters tried to hype up the crowd. (They need the last venue back.) Fontaine primps to the crowd. They tied up in the corner. Fontaine broke clean. Winters backed Fontaine into the corner. He broke clean too. Winters arm dragged Fontaine and held him down with an arm bar. Dombrowski zinged Maguire. Fontaine kneed Winters. Corey yanked on Fontaine’s arm. Fontaine flipped out of the arm bar but bragged so Winters yanked on his arm multiple times. Winters flipped him onto his back. Fontaine didn’t get enough air for a leap frog. Fontaine drop kicked Winters. They redid the spot. Fontaine went for a monkey flip but Winters pulled his legs backwards and Irish whipped him. Winters super arm dragged him out of the ring. Winters nailed a cross body to the floor. Fontaine rammed Winters into the guard rail. Fontaine tossed him back into the ring. Fontaine yapped to the crowd from the apron. Winters grabbed the injured left arm but Fontaine jumped backwards. Fontaine started to work over Winters left arm. Fontaine punched him.

Fontaine missed a spring board. Winters hit a stomach buster. He went for Sliced Bread #2 but Fontaine ducked under and held the tights for the three count. Justin LaBar orders the match restarted because of said held tights. Winters rolls up Fontaine while holding the tights which he should have seen but Dombrowski said he had turned around. Fontaine assaulted Winters after the match. Fontaine yelled at LaBar. Fontaine says he wants the tapes.

The PWO Conversation 12-03-2011

Jeremy: Ok so you watched PWO from two weeks ago not this current show?

Kevin: Correct.

Jeremy: So what you think of the main event and all the shennanigans?

Kevin: What a clusterfuck.

Jeremy: No shit.

Kevin: Very little build except by Maguire for the commissioner spot. Then reveal it and have anarchy? What a terrible choice.

Jeremy: I was totally shocked when Fontaine won and I thought, what a great idea. No one expected it. What a genuine surprise. Then they totally killed it all. Why was there a need for a commissioner in the first place? Who the hell makes the matches anyway? Was anyone, I mean anyone clamoring for an authority figure? Let alone some internet writer?

Kevin: “The Board” or some such entity.

Jeremy: Oh you mean like TNA’s “Network.” Ugh. If you are going to reuse ideas don’t reuse TNA’s. If an authority figure is going to be used shouldn’t it be “someone” not just anyone.

Kevin: Are you saying LaBar isn’t a someone?

Jeremy: Who?

Kevin: Thanks for adding to my final analysis

Jeremy: If I am a new fan of PWO watching that mess I really have to be scratching my head.  Maybe it is just me but they routinely have a simple, solid show and presentation. There is no need to get cute. Keep it streamlined and avoid this type of garbage. If that match had ended and then Labar came out and did a “tisk tisk” face with no announcement that would have been ideal. This way you would have had three different elements there. Why is that guy on? What happens with Matt Cross? Fontaine is the new champ. All three are hooks for the next week. Instead they wasted it all

Kevin: Good call on that couldn’t have summed it up better.

Jeremy: I will give them a pass on some of it since I do not know their schedule for tapings and what not.  But for episodic TV they blew it. I would think they tape all at the same time. All of the participants are still in the building so there would be no scheduling conflict.  Instead the following week we are treated to RBI whoever vs Daniel Arkham for this week. And holy shit was that painful.

Jeremy: Anyway, is there a wrestler you have seen that you wish did some sort of performance enhancing drugs so that WWE would notice them and skyrocket them? As bad as that theory may be. That’s how I feel with Fontaine.

Kevin: I had forgotten they were getting a new commish.

Jeremy: So did I.

Kevin: That was their first episode after the break.

Jeremy: There were some aspects I liked. Even though he has terrible hands Dombrowski sold both victories very well. Maguire was great in his cheerleading during the victory as well.

Kevin: He had me cracking up most of the episode. Maguire truly throws out stuff that is close to the topic but enough that Dombrowski has to question his line of thinking.

Jeremy: It took me a while to figure out Maguire’s style. At first I thought this dude was lazy but then realize he is pretty decent smartass but it comes off so low key it nearly gets lost.

Kevin: It helped when they stopped moving him in & out of the booth.

Jeremy: There seems to be a lot of potential with PWO. As an indy league goes the wrestlers are not embarrassing.

Jeremy: I think the production could be better though to capitalize on them.

Kevin: For all the gadgets they got for production, they need money for a set. They like to tape in different venues, but I’m talking backgrounds for the taped promos that they could ship from place to place. Speaking of production, it wasn’t just me that heard the announcers sounding like they were broadcast in the whole venue, was I?

Jeremy: No you were not. I swear at some points you heard them through the PA system. That is a huge no no.

Kevin: Those types of mistakes should start being eliminated. They’ve been around long enough and had the toys for long enough.

Jeremy: That just seemed like a gaffe though not a constant problem.

Kevin: It happened too many times for my liking.

Jeremy: I don’t want to come off negative about this promotion or product though. It needs to be said there are positives but this just stood out as a major mess up in booking. They lost out on a lot of future potential. Then I saw the ads for the Brawl in the Hall promotion and wondered why this wasn’t all build up to that.

Kevin: Is that the Dec. 17th taping? I was buzzing thru the commercials.

Jeremy: I think so. They tout it as the first annual event so it should be special and this is where the build should have started. Not started and ended in the same ten minute segment.

Stunt Granny Big 11 Week Ending 5/14/11

1. Cheese – Some people just can’t get enough of it. Some of those people should try to get less of it. – Eric

2. MVP –  He’s been all over the wrestling media in the past week, promoting New Japan’s first big visit to the U.S. In the process, he’s been very well spoken about what he liked and grew to dislike about WWE’s evolving style to more kid-friendly, PG “entertainment.” Search it all out, it’s all totally worth the read. – Eric

3. Maryse –  Hotsy totsy, did you see that picture Jeremy and Kevin posted for Stunt Granny Audio #142? If that doesn’t make you harder than a left turn in front of the mall, you have no soul. – Eric

4. Chris Harris, Mick Foley & Chyna – These three were supposed to be surprises this week on iMPACT! Since I don’t read spoilers, I was surprised by Harris’ appearance especially since it was his bloated brother that got the gig. I was surprised by Mick Foley because I assumed it would be Dixie Carter. Finally, I knew it was Chyna but was surprised that she looked somewhat with it. What doesn’t surprise me is the fact that I am completely underwhelmed with this treasure trove of surprises. – Kevin

5. Jason Bane – I know my viewing habits are a little behind for Pro Wrestling Ohio so this item could have been posted a couple of weeks ago. After going long spans for PWO Title reigns, Agent Aaron Maguire’s latest client “The Megastar” Marion Fontaine dropped the strap to “The Most Dominant Man in PWO.” It is the second time within the past couple of months that the title changed. I’ll hope that it stays around his waist until Wrestlelution. Congratulations to Jason Bane though. – Kevin

6. TNA Sacrifice – Samoa Joe is feuding with Crimson but isn’t on the PPV. AJ Styles is feuding with Bully Ray but isn’t on the PPV. Mr. Kennedy is feuding with, well, everyone, but isn’t on the PPV. Chris Harris is sad looking and out of shape and he has no feud but he is on the PPV. A guy named Max Buck is on the PPV but not having anal sex with another man. Chyna is on the PPV although she has been out of wrestling and forgotten for a long while. Order estimation- 14,000 or so. – Jeremy

7. Smackdown – Christian and Randy Orton proved to be ratings flops. As the flag carriers for the Friday night broadcast this should be troubling but then it isn’t Monday Night Raw so who cares. – Jeremy

8. Bill DeMott – Since I’m trying to push our Twitter account, I’ll pimp the Tough Enough trainer @BillDeMott since @StuntGranny follows him. My favorite tweet for this week “I have decided how I will answer all those with #Negative comments………theres your answer.enjoy the day-BD”. – Kevin

9. Living in the past – 2011 – 1997 = 14:

Hulk Hogan vs. Sting is the current plan for the Bound for Glory main event, although not etched in stone. When asked, Hogan said right now he’s 50% about doing another match, according to an interview on the “Monday Night Mayhem” radio show. “If you would have asked me two months ago, I would have said no way. If I could get six and a half months (since the most recent fusion surgery) under my belt, I’d pretty much know the answer to that. If I did land wrong or something, just don’t know if all this hardware and stuff would hold together.” Watching Hogan walking on Impact this past week, the idea of doing a match, unless it’s a tag and he’s in for one spot and never does anything that requires movement or falling, looks like a very bad idea. The guy can barely walk. Considering how badly hurt he gets every time he wrestles, this seems really sad to even consider it. Maybe for a million dollar payday you can justify the risk, but him wrestling at this stage won’t move the needle at all unless he says it’s his retirement match (wouldn’t work in storyline since he’s the heel) and goes on all the talk shows to promote it, and even then, with wrestlers and retirements, that may end up meaning nothing for business at this stage.
14 goddamn years ago. – Dusty

10. Elijah Burke – Blew this popstand:

According to TheElijahExpress.com, D’Angelo Dinero, also known as Elijah Burke, has graduated with a degree of high honors in Criminal Justice. This could have been what he was alluding to on May 13th with various tweets, including one Thursday night that read: “My time has come, It’s time to move on. I’ve served well. Hope none has been disappointed; hope my hard work has been Applauded&Appreciated
It has from here. – Dusty

11. Brother Love’s floating head – I just, there are no words:

PWO – Season 4 – Episode 5

Guess who got pushed even more this week? The key is the picture above. I'm so tricky.

Shima Xion returned to PWO for the first time since July. Xion ran down the crowd then went over his blinding by Michael Facade, who was just returning the favor (Go back and check the PWO archives from last year for the whole history). Xion challenged Facade to a match at Pressure Rising, which is scheduled for February 20th now. Jason Gory was Xion’s opponent.  Dombrowski notes that these two have tagged together and feuded against one another in other leagues around the area. Gory took control with some arm drags early. Gory head scissored Xion onto the ramp.  Gory hit a flip dive over the top rope onto the outside. Xion kicked Gory in the face from his back. Dombrowski pimped Wrestlezone while Maguire pimped Stunt Granny. Nice. Xion slapped on a reverse chin lock. Dombrowski was harping on Gory wanting to go to the top in PWO quickly.  Gory gave Xion a springboard Code Breaker. He followed it up with a sunset flip for a two count. Xion flipped Gory and gave him a face buster. Xion super kicked Gory then gave him a snapmare driver. They abruptly cut to commercials.

Analysis: Evidently Facade was one of the gentlemen who couldn’t make it because of the snow storm that made this taping a little funky. It’s fine for them to pus the match up until later because it seemed like it was happening too soon anyway since they have a long history against each other. I’m not sure why Dombrowski was pushing Gory as much as he was. He better be sticking around for the rest of the season or else it’s wasted effort. The match was well wrestled. Score: +1.

Nicki (I’ve been spelling it wrong for 2 years now) Valentino came to the ring wearing a Superman shirt, a fanny pack and zebra striped trunks. That’s a really strange combination. Matthew Justice was his opponent. Valentino was going over his move list. Justice clamped on a headlock. Valentino tossed Justice out of the ring. Valentino got thrown into the outside railing. Justice hit a suicide dive. Justice clotheslined Valentino hard. Valentino gave Justice a Russian Leg Sweep and flipped into a two count. Valentino high kneed Justice then gave him a rear chin lock.  Justice assaulted Valentino power offense ending with a power slam. Valentino gave Justice a double underhook suplex. Justice got both his boots into Valentino’s face when he came off the top rope. Justice shoulder blocked Valentino into the corner. Valentino pulled Justice down by the hair after he had been lifted up on Justice’s shoulders. Justice got a three count from a Jack Hammer.
