Four of the best independent wrestling pic feds join forces to pay tribute to one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, Latino Heat, Eddie Guerrero. First held in 2007, the Eddie Guerrero Memorial Cup brings together the best junior heavyweight wrestlers in the world and pits them against each other in a single-elimination tournament. First won by Rey Mysterio, this year's edition features 16 of the finest junior heavyweights in the world representing UCW, PEW, GWV and CHIMU Pro.
On the first edition:
UCW - 'The Villain' Marty Scurll vs. Andrew Everett GWV - Frightmare vs. 'The Cleaner' Kenny Omega CHIMU Pro - Rich Swann vs. Sami Zayn
-Nice use of a Scurll promo -Great match to open the show - very back and forth and either man could have won -Never come across Omega before but he looks to have some cool moves and sweeping Frightmare out at the end was funny -Thought Zayn was done for at the end but cool reversal for the win
Nice show, guys. Really cool concept and to hold it across four different companies is a cool idea. Spreads the workload too.

I'm glad Scurll won, I hate Andrew Everett so much. The match was good, but I liked the second much better. On that note, I am sad that Frightmare lost. A great contest it was, though. I enjoyed the Swann Zayn match quite a bit. It had a neat finish and was fun to watch.
This is a neat little show and is the first time I've seen UCW. I'll watch more of what they've got now.

Really enjoyed this! I don't think criticism I warranted since it's a memorial event but even do you guys great at what you do. All three matches flowed well and it was a well executed joint collab. There a several youtube Feds I have finally discovered that I don't think have ever been mentioned here. Hope there is another show soon! Thanks to all three of you for this!
Great custom work from all involved and you all put together a really enjoyable show.
Opening match was great. Really good posing and some awesome sequences throughout. I don't think I've seen any of UCW's previous work, but this showcase makes me want to check out more.
Second match, GWV, always in for a treat with your matches and this was no different. Again, as with the opening match not familiar with the competitors but you put together an excellent showing in this one. As always the posing through out was superb!
Finally, CHIMU pro. Rich Swann vs Sami Zayn, well I know who these two are, haha! Great match again, Swann's standing 450 is incredible and crazy that Zayn got the counter to win!
Great show, action packed from start to finish. Good job to all involved!

Great effort from all involved! I've never seen UCW before - but it was a real treat! It might help if I knew a bit more about the Indies (I'm working on it!) so I knew who to get behind. Always cool to see GWV, and once again - delivered on every point. Finally, CHIMU - EPIC match. Thought Swann would get the win, so Zayn winning was a nice surprise!
Very enjoyable to watch. Lots of new and interesting characters to watch in be introduced to. Really liked the video packages of the wrestlers move sets before the figure match. Helped with the realism. Realy unique way to spread the tourney out amongst 3 feds. All 3 matches were high quality to the point that it was almost as if one person was doing it. Favorite match was Cleaner vs nightmare cause I really like omega. Great customs, always awesome pose for pose work:). Zayn vs Swann was entertaining and love the custom,great aerial poses throughout. saw ur reflection a couple of times..aren't you a handsome devil,lol . UCW...Scrull is such a cool character, loved the promo, very good match with great posing. Nice work with this guys! Can't wait for more!
