Can I ask some PWG fans opinions on here about Ryan Taylor?
I've seen quite a few shows with this guy, and I must say, he is dreadful. Has a great look, but from what I've seen in his matches, be they tag matches or singles, he looks out of place, insists on slapping the hell of out his leg for his umpteenth roundhouse kick to the head and just makes me cringe as a wrestling fan.
Willie Mack on the other hand, is superb, IMO. Has great timing, actually sells moves/strikes and connects with the crowd.
Just wondering on some thoughts from you guys, thanks.
Holy Death to all but Metal was fantastic. Loved every match. The no DQ was crazy. Brian Cage-Steen was good..but too much talking and comedy bits for a World Title match but still made Brian look great. We had front row tickets. I took more pictures but here are just a few:
Singles Match B-Boy vs. Famous B Felt like this was a hard hitting match with some good spots. The Crowd was into it from the beginning. Good opener for the show. B-Boy winning the match but shaking the hand of Famous B after. I'd say ***
Singles Match TJ Perkins vs. Ryan Taylor I don't know what was up with the Ryan Taylor hate discussion earlier. He was really impressive in this bout. TJ Perkins gets the win. I'd say another solid ***
Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship Title Match "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen (Champion) vs. Brian Cage (Challenger) This was a really entertaining match, but as I said in the other Thread, lots of talking from Steen giving a lot of laughs but too much for a World Title match though. Brian Cage looked Great. Lots of crazy holy crap moments. And a near fall from Cage getting me to think he would have Won the Title. Then a lame roll up pin from Steen. It gave Steen the victory and made Cage look almost unbeatable which is good. I see a World Title for this man in the future. He is main event material. Winner: Steen. I'd give this a *** ½
No Disqualification Tag Team Match For Tag Team Championship Super Smash Bros. (Player Uno & Stupefied) vs. The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) The second these two teams got in the ring, it was complete madness. I didn't know where to look to be honest. The whole room was standing for this one. Hard chair shots, and the table breaking right next to me. The last few minutes with many near falls and the place was going absolutely crazy. This match, I felt should, and would have Main Evented but due to SSB/and Steen having to travel, their matches were in first Half. But Winner and New Tag Champions...SSB! I'd give this brawl a ****
Six-Person Tag Team Match Candice LeRae & RockNES Monsters (Johnny Goodtime & Johnny Yuma) vs. "Pretty" Peter Avalon, Ray Rosas, & Joey Ryan Joey Ryan is now "Trending" Joey Ryan since he was trending world wide on twitter. This was a fun match, little slow or awkward at bits. Some funny bits. Nothing really special honestly, good match to get people into it after the intermission. Candice LeRae & RockNES Monsters pick up the win. I'd say ** or **½
Singles Match "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs. Willie Mack I think his has been my favorite Willie Mack match thus far. This match was battle of the titans. Everyone was into this match. This match did not disappoint. I wish it would have actually gone a bit longer though. Willie Mack beats Elgin. I'd give this a ***½, could have easily passed that if it had gone a bit longer.
Grudge Match El Generico vs. Ricochet Even though I thought the Tag Match should have Main Evented the show, This match still delivered as a strong main event and a great closing for the show. Compared past Ricochet vs. Generico, including their recent one in Evolve, I'd say this one has to be my favorite one. From beginning to end, great action, fast paced and some crazy spots. Ricochet pointed out my Dragon Gate shirt during the match, so look out for that on the DVD. I almost thought it was over after Ricochet hit the Top Rope reverse hurricarana I think, to Generico. But Generico picked up the win after a top rope Brain Buster. This match easily gets a ****
I actually prefer this show over DDT4 even though DDT4 this year was great. Can't wait for next show. I won't be missing it.
