  1. Possibly the best match I've ever seen Henry in and that's mostly due to WALTER's great performance. WALTER is easily the best big man on the indys and possibly the best big man in wrestling at the moment. This year he's been on a tear with constant great performances where he's been bullying his much smaller opponents around and this was no different. He beat the tar out of Henry and Henry did a great job at eating the beating. WALTER also does a great job at getting over Henry's comebacks. From what we've gotten this year, WALTER can have a good match against almost anyone.
  2. EVOLVE has been building towards this match since Strickland returned to the company. Strickland is such a great heel in EVOLVE and Riddle is of course the fired up babyface the fans love and they play their roles perfectly. Leading to the match, Strickland had targeted Riddle's arm and he had broken Riddle mentally with his mind games and Riddle lets anger take over and that backfires throughout the match and Strickland uses this to exploit Riddle's weaknesses throughout the match. Some of the cool stuff from this match include Strickland hitting a running Swerve Stomp from the ramp on Riddle sitting in a chair in front of Riddle's family. Riddle's chops are great as always. Also, to the benefit of the match, Riddle cuts his hand which adds to the backstory of the match and Strickland exploits it. Riddle's selling is also pretty great throughout the majority of the match. There's some pretty big table bumps here like Riddle hitting a senton off the ring apron through a table and of course a big Swerve Stomp off a ladder through a table on Riddle. The finishing stretch was also good with Riddle getting one last boost of adrenaline before Strickland puts him down with a JML Driver. Loved Riddle just barely bridging out of the last nearfall before the finish as he was already worn out instead of just popping straight up with a power kickout. Some things of course didn't work, such as them going into overkill with one too many Swerve Stomps throughout the match and the downtime while Swever setup for some weapon assisted spots, but to their credit, Riddle's selling was good in between the setups. Again, not a MOTYC or a ****+ classic or any of that, but definitely another solid/entertaining match from these two and well worth watching if you dig any of their previous matches. From the matches of theirs I've seen, I'd rank them in this order: MLW world title tournament final This match The first EVOLVE match Their second EVOLVE match I would rank the MLW match ahead of this one because I was there live, so of course I have a different perspective on that one as it was great to experience that live.
  3. Somewhat of an indytastic big man match. I'm not familiar with Drake, but he's a big, fat dude who can throw dish can take punishment and also dish it out, plus he can do all the cute indy stuff the fans dig. Before the match, Riddle challenges Drake to a no rope break match and Drake accepts, so this works in favor of the match as they need to figure out ways to counter each others submissions and endless strikes without being saved via rope break. The match develops nicely with both guys brutalizing each other with big man stiff shots and some pretty decent grappling before it gets very indytastic with the annoying endless head drop sequence. The finish was brutal as Riddle unleashes a brutal beatdown. Post match Drake gets a well deserved standing ovation and a please come back chant. Good stuff. ***1/2
  4. Far from the classic the commentator makes it out to be, but it's definitely good fun. WALTER goes all out and doesn't hold anything back and ZSJ looks a lot better here than the norm. His grappling doesn't look as exhibition-y as it usually does and his strikes look a lot better than they usually do. However, this is pretty indy-tastic, so it's definitely not for everyone. ***
  5. Another really good match from the weekend. I'm really starting to dig Hot Sauce's cheap shot face punts. He's not Kawada with them, but they're great. He hit some great looking ones on Kingston at the Bloodspot event and he hit one here on WALTER that got WALTER going before WALTER chopped him down. As we know, WALTER is great at being a bully and it's no different here. Hot Sauce however more than held his own and wasn't afraid to bring his own. Lovely finish with the arm trapped rear naked choke. Nifty match between these two.
  6. Another really good WWNLive match from EVOLVE. I'm a big fan of both Sawa and Jaka and both guys brought it here, namely Sawa. He packed some heat behind his strikes and his fast hand strikes are great. There was a series where these were on the ground and they exchange some gruesome headbutts and Sawa just packed some heat on some right hands he was landing on Jaka.
  7. Riddle's first defense and it's a quality match against Sekimoto. Sekimoto sees Riddle bootless and he joins in on the fun. This a no rope break match and they do a great job using the stip. as there's some subs that involve taking advantage of the stip. This match also proved Riddle's adaptability as he works an entirely different match against an entirely different opponent from this weekend. Some of the highlights include Sekimoto challenging Riddle to a sumo face off that leads to a double underhook and throw from Sekimoto, Sekimoto trying to hit Riddle with a deadlift German suplex which Riddle holds onto Sekimoto ankle and Sekimoto just clubs him in the back before hitting the deadlift, Sekimoto getting Riddle into a torture rack and Riddle countering with a kimura in the ropes and Sekimoto hitting some brutal knees to Riddle's face through the ropes to break it and Riddle deadlifting Sekimoto into a throw. Great stuff.
  8. This was pretty good. It was basically ZSJ trying to be too cute and Dickinson using his brute strength and power to counter ZSJ's cute sub attempts by either throwing kicks or strikes from wherever he could or by trying deadlift throws. I really dug the finish with the ref. calling for the bell instead of Dickinson tapping out. Good stuff. ***
  9. Yehi is the smaller competitor, so he spends a good portion of the early going trying to establish his ground, but WALTER isn't having any of it. He toys with Yehi, tossing him around the ring with ease, employing suplexes and bodyslams to assert his dominance. Yehi is a master of unconventional offense, so he manages to sneak in a few nasty stomps to WALTER's knees, wearing the larger man down. Yehi's offensive creativity never ceases to amaze me. When WALTER tries to take the fight to the outside, Yehi out-wits him by baiting him up to the steps and going right back to those vicious stomps. Back in the ring, WALTER is equally great as an imposing force, showing no signs of fear whenever he's downed by the craftier, more agile opponent. A defenseless Yehi finds himself dangling from the second rope, anticipating WALTER's next move...or so it seems. Yehi, still in a precarious position, unloads with a series of kicks to WALTER's chest, allowing him to summon enough strength to land a superplex for a near-fall. Unfortunately for Yehi, the damage has been done at this point, and WALTER rallies with a big boot and a sleeper hold to pick up the win. It's a shame that the match ended just as the crowd was starting to warm up to it, but Yehi and WALTER managed to tell a compelling story while leaving room for a rematch, and they did it all in slightly north of 15 minutes. I can't complain.
  10. This was whatever. Opening was pretty boring with them doing uninteresting takes on basic holds, I've seen enough arm wingers for a lifetime, nothing Chris Hero does with them makes me want to see more. Commentary compared Tommy End to a K1 kickboxer, I don't remember ever seeing Peter Aerts do sound effect kicks. The sequence with End and Sabre Jr. avoiding each other's kicks was more eye-rolling than any of the recently debated flip GIFs and the one man Magic Killer was the type of embarrassing indy nonsense I'd expect out of Davey Richards. The Sabre in peril portion wasn't particularly interesting and all the striking quickly got repetitive. They kicked it up a notch for the finish with their puro cosplay strike exchanges but then the match just went on and on and on. I'm not really familiar with how Evolve matches are structured so it is not a good sign they couldn't get me to bite on any of the nearfalls. The idea of Tommy End, this great faux kickboxer doing Moonsaults could be explained as an Otsuka-tribute but it was much closer to a very bad Koji Kanemoto tribute. I don't really have anything nice to say about this match. It wasn't very interesting to me sorry (I did pop for the D'Lo Brown namedrop on commentary). Chris Hero has a nice Piledriver I guess. **
  11. Tracy Williams sucks. I can't remember seeing a praised wrestler that has as poor slap throwing technique as he does. And while I have nothing against guys doing dives against Riddle the way they it was set up here was shit-not to mention doing it early on minimized its effect and shock value (well, indy guys doing dives isn't really shocking and so far I'm of the impression anyone who's compared Evolve to Battlarts has no idea what they're talking about). He's also incredibly dull when in control of the match-he can execute MOVES right but not good enough that I'm going to actually be impressed by his Dropkicks and Knee Drops and good grief is he bad at tying them together in an interesting fashion. A really good performance by Riddle however, lots of nifty slams and takedown by him, his counter knee looked absolutely disgusting and got a bigger reaction than any of the thigh slapping in the previous bouts. He rocked Williams with some nice strikes and put on a strong selling performance. They did some nice Piledrivers in the stretch and while I like the idea of the finish it was much closer to, IDK, Shawm Michaels vs Kurt Angle than Ikeda-Ono, if this leglock is so dangerous you shouldn't hesitate before kicking someone in the face. He should study how Takada, a much better worker, kicked Fujiwara in the face in their 10/25 match. No weird Triple H pauses there. **1/2
  12. Better than their first match, mostly due to a superior match structure that played to both of their strengths well. A better crowd here too. Less stupid spots were done-there was a rope running no-sell sequence with Hero doing Big Boots and Riddle hitting knes I could've done without, and a stupid exchange where it wasn't clear whether Riddle was Headbutting Hero's arm or Hero was elbowing Riddle in the head (it looked like the former but was sold as the latter). But beyond that, this was a quality match. Hero's cheeky insults (often followed by a strike sold as a big moment) will only ever go so far in generating actual heat, but carrying control segments is definitely one of his strengths as a worker. Riddle's character of an eternally content stoned caveman makes his absurdist use of bro when he's firing up inexplicaply endearing. There are less transitions here than in their first match, they're done similarly better even in a vacuum-and the structure only makes the gap in quality between the first match and this one bigger. The difference in striking ability between Hero and Riddle is also played up better and more clearly-while Riddle can cause some damage to Hero if he sticks to for too long it opens up chances for Hero to get back in control. While Riddle Gutwrench Suplexing Hero is something that would've been lost in the noise in the previous match it was a big momentum shift here. Him Fisherman Suplexing Hero would've been just a spot after a previous match-here it was a big hope spot because it was after a big Hero punch that you'd expect would bring Hero back into control and make him continue to display his dominance. I liked Riddle's final rush because I have quite the affinity for "cut off no sell attempts" spots and the finish smartly played up the way their previous match ended. I appreciated the intent behind his head stomping in the corner but it only reminded me he isn't as good as Kazunari Murakami. Not a match I'd call great but one where I can definitely see the reasoning for the hype behind it. ***1/4
  13. Pretty great performance by Sabre and a not so great one by Ospreay. I've tried to but I just can't like to guy. He'll drop selling in order to move on to the next MOVE all the time, the selling he actually does doesn't look convincing and doesn't last long enough and his shit just isn't impressive. It doesn't look good. He's good at jumping around but not good at incorporating his leaping ability into creating good pro wrestling sequences and moves. Chad compared him to a young AJ Styles in his article-I couldn't disagree more. I think young AJ Styles actually had a really good basic sense of pro wrestlng, certainly a million times better one than Ospreay. I'm sure Ospreay would be better if he watched a bunch of Ohtani tapes and went to work southern indies for three years. Half of his offence just looks ridiculously bad and the other half I've seen done better by any number of CMLL guys. I imagine people would be losing their shit for Triton if he was british, signed by New Japan and looked good in a suit. Anyway. Onto Sabre and how he made this match good. He totally carried Ospreay on the mat (hardly surprising). Sabre is so much better than the catch point guys it's ridiculous, a Gulak or Tracy Williams may use a forearm during a hold to remain in control but they do it without any purpose and it doesn't add to the match like it does in a Finlay or Regal one. Sabre will also do something similar like step on Ospreay's hand for a transition, and will both give the move meaning by doing so and milk it out more. Furthermore he has so many escapes that he can basically have Ospreay slap on a wirstlock and work a whole segment AROUND Ospreay. He may not be at that Billy Robinson level where he's reversing all his own submissions and making it seem like Jumbo knows how to work but he did do the next best thing in making the narrative of the match fit him releasing Ospreay from holds. He busted out some really neat suplex counters to Ospreay's flips as well. ***1/2
  14. Timothy Thatcher may not exactly be my favourite wrestler but he's far from being the dirt worst like Tracy Williams or Gulak. He's been in some good matches before. He looked REALLY good against Chris Masters and actually carried himself like a real pro wrestler there. He's trained with Yuki Ishikawa. So I think he isn't a great wrestler more due to the same reason he can't cut a promo to save his life than due to a lack of grappling abity or something like that. Thatcher's facial expression just before he came back into the ring after the injury angle was embarrassingly bad as was his selling of the angle itself but at least I like the idea of booking fuckfinishes in 2016 so props to Gabe. Thatcher made a solid sparring partner for Riddle, this is nothing mindblowing if you've seen some Battlarts but it's the closest I've seen an Evolve match come to looking similar to one and that comparison has been made plenty so far. Some solid grappling that would've been much better if Thatcher was a more charismatic performer and there was more peril attached to the holds, the contrast between Riddle's awesome Fujiwara armbar where it looked like he was hyperextending Thatcher's arm and Thatcher's was staggering. I'll also give them props for striking their opponent on the ground to remain in control or obtain control, we got some nice slaps out of it even if in general a lot of it ended up looking pretty mediocre, and a lack of striking/kicking ability is definitely something that is probably lacking amongst Evolve guys today to come close to the heights of the faux-shootiness (if they even wish to prosper in that style). ***1/4
  15. Worst Evolve match I've seen so far. It actually started off pretty good, doing junior chain wrestling with Johnny Gargano was the best Tracy Williams ever looked, and Galloway was a solid hot tag, still the majority of this was so dull and uninteresting, Gulak and Williams had one nice combo move and Gulak will do one thing per match that I like like steal a Finlay spot or something that looks like a Finlay spot at least, here it was dragging Gargano by the feet into his corner, but outside of that it's clear he and Williams have no idea how to work, they're just so boring, so many stomps and armbreakers leading to nowhere. The double submission spots are also getting ridiculous but I did like Gargano and Galloway switching who they were doing them on for it made a ridiculous visual. It felt like it was much longer than it was, Gargano and Galloway were fine in fighting back and I kind of feel bad for them for being in a match this bad. *1/2
  16. I was hoping we would see some matwork that was interesting for a change when Yehi started going for single legs and Hero would shrug them off-play up the size difference! It's easy! Efficient! Interesting! Do it! But. No. Arm wringers. I respect Chris Hero for his attitude of just doing what he wants and not caring much but I can get pretty tired of his formulas. He knows how to build a match and it was apparent here-they didn't just exchange control segments. Hero dominated the match and they build heat through his control segments. I really liked the Big Boot cutoff to Yehi's corner flip. Having my first impression of him be a match vs. Tracy "please quit wrestling and go pick apples" Williams certainly did Yehi no favours but it's going to take more for me to be sold on the idea of him as a world class talent. Here he didn't really look strong enough to throw Hero around, the Belly to Belly Suplex in particular looked pretty sloppy. Hero gets exposed as the match goes a little longer for relying too much on elbow>kick-out>repeat in the finishing stretch but I don't think that they went overboard in this particular instance. A solid showing but nothing particuarly memorable. ***
  17. I'd like to see Riddle's strenghts used in the manner a Battlarts-esque style would use them, or see him work as a shootish base in matches that would be worked like New Japan vs UWFi, but since that just isn't going to happen since most Evolve guys aren't good or creative enough for that I'll gladly take him vs. a charismatic showman like Zack Sabre Jr. This was more Sabre's match than Riddle's, Sabre did a great job of selling the threat of Riddle's submissions and I like the way Riddle countered Sabre's flashy submissions with simple and logical counters many wrestlers don't even see are there for the taking due to bubble they're used of thinking in. This may sound like a weird comparison but the way Riddle executes Suplexes reminds me of Buzz Sawyer, he'd also jump and hit moves with the same intensity Riddle does. This was worked in a similar vein to a lucha title match and I enjoyed it a lot. ***1/2
  18. I have to say I was was surprised by how much I disliked the first Sabre Jr./Callihan tag, I was more expecting Evolve matches to be good but a bit dry and not kind of shit like that one was. This was a much better and more interesting match, I liked that they utilized the format of tag matches to do cool stuff like Sabre pushing TJP back into the ring after his fake dive and Gulak pushing Callihan off the top rope when had TJP in the "ten punches" position. The most interesting thing in the match by far were Zack Sabre Jr.'s flashy matwork sequences. Callihan and TJP didn't do much memorable and Gulak seems like someone whose ideas about pro wrestling are much closer to great wrestling than the wrestling he actually does, it's cool he does Finlay spots but becoming a great wrestler isn't that easy. I wish Sabre would drop his elaborate Kimura set-up. The double submission spots seem to always get a pop but much like in puro from where they ripped it don't seem to ever finish matches. ***
  19. Another good showing for Riddle, I liked his takedowns, the palm strikes he busted out on the ground and he hit a nice fisherman's suplex. Kaasa took too much of this short match for it to be especially good, he looked like a generic indy guy I'd rather not watch ever again, I think Riddle vs. a guy who does Corkscrew Shooting Star Presses could work in theory but this convinced me Kaasa is a shitty wrestler who does Corkscrew Shooting Star Presses. **1/2
  20. There's a pretty big amount of people on the EVOLVE roster I don't care for (hence me not keeping up with the company) but there are also some guys that have been getting praise that I've never seen. So I figured I'd give them a chance. And. Maybe I shouldn't have. This wasn't any good. Probably the most useless skill a wrestler can have is executing a move correctly. I'm sure Lance Storm is a solid trainer but he wasn't even nominated for the GWE which is very telling with the long career he had. That's what this match was essentially. They grab a wristlock, a bodyscissors, something. Then move on. Some wrestlers can execute moves so beautifully that's enough on its own, but that wasn't really the case here. Just. Wristlock. I've seen wristlocks. You can make wristlocks work. You can actually work the hold itself. You can use it to build heat and suspense and then get a big transition out of it. You can add peril to it. They did none of that here. Just. Wristlocks. And moves. Lots of them. I imagine this is what Marufuji matches look like these days. Yehi's short outburts of suplexes was nice but even that wasn't anything memorable. I'm not sure exactly what emotion Yehi's weird facial expressions and the weird tongue thing were supposed to convey. At least Triple H-Dolph Ziggler made for an interesting insight in crowd control. *1/2
  21. This is my first time seeing Matt Riddle and I have to say he looked very impressive here. The opening amateur-style battle for the waistlock was a million times more interesting than the mundane pro-style holds in the previous Evolve bouts and he seems to have an actual character which is-you know, the kind of thing that was crucial in the original Battlarts stuff being as good as it was. He didn't do any stupid thigh slapping, him being barefoot provided an easy target for Yehi and his kick from the bottom looked really good. Yehi also looked much bettter here, his slams looked great. Flash submission finish ruled. This looks like a match-up that could provide a MOTYC with more time. ***1/4

  24. I didn't go to New Orleans, but there were a few indie shows that appealed to me this weekend. The most interesting to me is the "Indy Supershow" tonight at WrestleCon (Masato Tanaka vs. Kevin Steen, Jeff Jarrett vs. Colt Cabana, & more), but that's not on IPPV, presumably because of the ROH and TNA talent on the show. So that leaves me with Shimmer coming up in a few hours and the first Dragon Gate USA show last night. I had no interest in the DGUSA show until earlier this week. The Japanese Dragon Gate talent was cancelled because of visa issues, so Gabe had to try to put together a new card. The way it fell into place, the top three matches were the returning Low-Ki vs. Trent Barretta, Masato Tanaka (in town for WrestleCon/Indy Supershow) vs. Chris Hero, and DGUSA champ Johnny Gargano vs. Ricochet. The undercard was, surprise Teddy Hart run-in aside, completely, irredeemably terrible. It was like any random low level indie wrestling undercard, just with very athletic guys who can fly around well. Nobody had any idea what they were doing. Ki-Trent was really good. None of Ki's bad habits were visible and Trent is a very good, polished worker. The type of guy that's probably better for having been in WWE but most indie fans wouldn't admit it. Trent got real heat by doing little heel spots like boot scrapes after teasing big moves, and he even pinned Ki clean. Tanaka-Hero was excellent, more or less the match you'd expect. Finish fell a little flat because the announcers and most of the fans didn't know Tanaka's "Sliding D" finisher. Show was well worth my $10 just for this match, as I had hoped. I had no idea if I'd like Gargano-Ricochet but I really did; it was about as good as this type of flippy indie match can get. It built great and both guys were about a zillion times more polished than everyone on the undercard. Loved that Ricochet kicking out of a belt shot after a ref bump got the biggest pop of the night. This made me somewhat more likely to want to get another DGUSA show but made it I will never, ever watch EVOLVE.
