  1. Im not familiar with Jay Lover, but he seems like someone should be invited into a IWA-MS KOTDM tournament. The match is a falls count anywhere barbed wire Singapore cain match and theres also a mouse trap board match at ringside that was brought out for the match. The match itself was pretty bad imo. They went for the props from the get go and didnt build to them. They brawled around the crowd with Homicide taking a crazy tumble from a stage to a stage beneath it. Jay Lover took a break from the brawling to get a ladder which wasnt used until the end. Jay Lover also took a while setting up props to use such as the mouse trap board. The ladder came into play as he climbed the ladder for no reason and just ended up taking a bump off of it onto the mouse trap board trapped in between two chairs. I did dig Homicides tope con hilo table bump which Ive seen him previously do in ROH. Aside from that, there wasnt much else I dug. Skippable.
  2. I didnt like their previous match from the club with the horrible lighting and this was worked pretty similarly with Da Hit Squad working underneath as faces and Homicide and Montoya as heels, so I didnt like this match either. I personally prefer Da Hit Squad working as heels on top and potatoing people and bruising chests or as we saw in the KC Thunder and Metal Maniac match, as invading 1980s territorial heels. The first half is Homicide and Montoya with an extensive beatdown getting heat on Mafia and then he tags out and the match falls apart with them just brawling all over the ringside. A table is brought out to ringside and some glass is broken and they have to get some cleaning crew to clear up the ringside. Near the finishing stretch there seems to be a botched ref count as Montoya hit a tornado DDT on Monsta Mack and the ref makes the count, but Macks foot was on the ropes. He notices this later and restarts the match and then Homicide gets backdropped over the top rope onto the table this tells me the botched count was actually a work. Overall I thought this was rather skippable as was their previous match.
  3. Bryan Danielson defends the ROH World Title Right now, this is in my all time Top 50. One of the most overlooked matches in US indie wrestling history. Heel masterclass by Bryan and a focused Homicide performance, which makes his character moment at the end more rewarding. Excellent dueling arm work and consistent selling from both. Great continuity with the past when it comes to previous Bryan title defenses and the finish has 1/20/97 vibes to it. ****1/2
  4. This is quite the spectacle. Teddy Hart is one of the most compelling figures in the indy scene and his feud with Homicide is legendary. Teddy is legit crazy and is a guy who will no show events or refuse to the job, but the dude always puts on a show. He will pull out some of the most ridiculous and contrived things you will ever see and he is also willing to bleed buckets and brawl all over the area if need be. He also packs some heat behind a lot of his right hands. He is also known for doing endless moonsaults in matches and I have even seen him poorly calculate a dive and just land on a sea of fans. Him and Homicide have had an ongoing feud in the Northeast for almost 15 years now, but the matches have mostly all taken place in Jersey All Pro and these guys legit hate each other and will shoot on each other mid match. It is by far one of my favorite feuds in wrestling history. They will go from throwing worked punches, to fish hooking, shoot punching each other in the mouth, to hitting some brutal chair shots on each other, to throwing each other down flights of stairs. BLK Jeez is formerly Sabien from the BLK OUT CZW faction from years ago and Dezmond Xavier has been working for iMPACT!. Both guys are interchangeable here to me and I would've preferred if we got Azrieal, Insane Dragon, Jay Lethal or any of the other JAPW regular Jr.'s instead of these two. This starts out as a three way between Homicide and BLK Jeez and Dezmond as they don't even know if Teddy will make it to the match. 2 minutes in and Teddy's music hits and he walks out and this entire thing breaks down with Homicide and Teddy confronting each other, but getting attacked from behind by BLK Jeez and Dezmond. Teddy here hits some of the most ridiculous spots you'll ever see before this gets really entertaining with Teddy finally getting to brawl with Homicide in the stands. Some of the highlights here are Homicide and Teddy punching each other in the mouths, fish hooking each other, biting each other, Homicide trying to break Teddy's ankles by hitting Teddy with some wild chair shoots to his ankles, Homicide and Teddy flipping each other off while Homicide tries to put Teddy in a sharpshooter and Homicide telling Teddy this is for Shawn before trying to hit him with a Cop Killa. There's also the addition of Julius Smokes being here a hype man. He's all over the place and he takes off his belt and his butt is being exposed to everyone for the entirety of the match while he whips Teddy with it. Teddy opts that he doesn't want to get whop with it and he chases J-Train down around. BLK Jeez and Dezmond drag this down a bit with some somewhat sloppy exchanges in the ring, but luckily Homicide and Teddy are ringside pushing and throwing guardrails and tearing the ringside apart. Really bizarre entertaining spectacle.
  5. Just by looking at the line up of guys in this match, you should know what to expect... Surprising enough, Teddy is the babyface and Da Strong Style Thugz are the heels and for the first bit of the match it's basically a handicap match with them beating up Teddy until Teddy gets his hope spot in which is a... Moonsault! And the lights go out like the usually do and Necro comes out like the toothless, barefoot hillbilly hero to save Teddy from the mugging and turn this into a proper four corners match... Then the match develops with Ki v. Necro and Teddy v. Homicide pairings and it's chaos. Necro takes some nasty double stomps here including one in/off the bleachers and one off the top rope into a bridged wooden panel between the guard rail and the ring from Low Ki. Homicide forks Teddy like he's Abdullah the Butcher and but Teddy doesn't bleed like he's Carlos Colón in Bayamón, Puerto Rico like he did in the cage match against Homicide and B-Boy. There's also a betrayals near the end and confetti flying to celebrate the victory. Pretty great stuff.
  6. Some more utter chaos from Jersey All Pro. Not as great as some of the other matches in the Homicide vs. Teddy feud, but you still get the crazy Teddy Asai moonsaults off the top, mouth punching, Ki stiff kicking people, some bumps through wooden panels and chair shots. Hernandez manhandling Ki is quite the visual, as is Homicide locking a sharpshooter on Teddy. Well worth a watch.
  7. This is built as Fat Frank's Suicidal Games and it's basically a WarGames-style 4 vs. 4 match with weapons in trash cans placed all over the ring. The teams are Dickinson, Jaka, Ortiz and Draztic vs. Homicide, Low Ki, Monsta Mack and Mafia. There's a ton of hate, chaos and violence in this from the get go. Draztic bleeds buckets and blood is splattered across all over the floor. Low Ki's entrance was amazing as he carries this local hero aura around him as he walks out with his Hitman gear to a massive pop. Ki accidentally dropkicks Ki in the corner and later on Mack shoves Ki off the top and turns on him which of course is all part of the build to the crazy year end steel cage match. Joker comes out near the end of the match and he runs over Mack with a brutal knee in the corner which seems like it legit KO's Mack. Truly chaotic and there's a million things going on a time. One of the most underrated matches of the year.
  8. Not as good as the cage match that followed this, but still a brutal wild brawl. Low Ki is out in his Hitman gear managing Homicide and Joker. They start brawling and wrecking the ringside and knocking guardrails and throwing chairs at other while stiffing each other up with strikes. When it gets in the ring, it turns into a traditional tag match for a while with Da Hit Squad working from underneath which is an oddity and with Maff working as the FIP. During the beatdown on Maff, Joker busts Maff's eyebrow with face kicks. Once Mack gets the hot tag, this breaks down again and brutally beat each other up as you'd expect -- even the pin saves are brutal as they just run through each others with stiff tackles. The ref. throws out the match after Ki interferes and brutally elbows the ref. Kyle the Beast then runs out and makes the save. A perfect way to build up to the upcoming steel cage match. The post match antics with Homicide tearing up the ringside is fantastic.
  9. The JAPW Homicide and Teddy Hart continues... Not as great as the previous cage match between Homicide and B-Boy vs. Teddy and Jack Evans as it lacks the blood and intensity from that match, but this is still really fun. It's basically a handicap match for the early part of this before the lights go out and Samoa Joe comes out and cleans house. Joe and Hernandez brawl around ringside while Teddy and Homicide go at it in the ring. Joe returns to the ring and he sets Homicide up for the Hart Attack before he turns on Teddy and powerslams him. Homicide then buries Teddy with a brutal Cop Killa. Fun match.
  10. This is a 4 way TLC match for the JAPW tag titles. Teddy Hart's tag partner is Homicide who refuses to come in into a couple of minutes in the match when Teddy's getting beat up by everyone else in the match. Homicide cleans house before turning on Teddy and them punching each other in the mouth. This isn't the flippy spot fest that I expected, but more of a wild brawl with unprotected chair shots flying everything, unbreakable tables, Homicide forking Kashmere and nasty ladder spots. Some of the highlights include Teddy punching people in the mouth, Teddy unprofessionally suplexing Acid through a chair, Teddy powerbombing Jay through the remains of a table, Homicide missing a tope con hilo and going through a table, the SAT hitting an air raid cash on Mark off the ring apron through a table, Jay hitting a Jay Driller on Kashmere through a table and endless bumps off ladders. The Homicide vs. Teddy Hart feud was built through out the match too as they verbally attacked each other when given the chance to. The post match mess was fantastic -- Teddy sucker punches Homicide in the mouth and then goes nuts doing flips on him. Homicide then flips out and destroys the tag title with the ladder and ring post. Definitely not for everyone, but I definitely enjoyed this fiasco.
  11. Another chapter in the wild, hate filed Homicide and Teddy Hart feud. This is crazy as you'd think. I like Jack Evans and B-Boy, but what we want to see from this is the Homicide and Teddy Hart exchanges and luckily there's a lot of focus on these two. Teddy does a nutty moonsault off the top of the cage to the outside onto Homicide. Homicide also wrecks Teddy with an LP record and then forks him and he bleeds buckets. There's some other cool stuff, such as Jack getting hung upside down on the cage and then getting face lifted by B-Boy and a super cool visual of Teddy pouring blood while Homicide rams his faced against the cage with a close up from the ringside camera. Also, no one takes a Cop Killa like Jack. He takes it on his neck/head/face and it looks brutal every time. In the finishing stretch, the lights go out and Jim Neidhart comes out to a massive pop. Neidhart and Teddy hit the Hart Attack before Teddy hits his flippy finisher off the top. Fantastic match.
  12. These guys have had better matches with other before, but they have great chemistry together. A hot Philly ECW Arena crowd, Lethal as an upcoming baby face getting a shot against the vet who loves putting brutal beatings on his opponents makes this a really fun match.
  13. The Homicide vs. Teddy Hart feud continues to deliver entertainment. Teddy comes out with a wrapped up arm and Homicide viciously goes after it throwing him to the corner and Teddy has to leave due to it. so it turns into a handicap match. According to a Steen, he was talking with Homicide before the show and they were told Teddy couldn't do the match because he had suffered an arm injury and they saw him doing pull ups on a hoop. Classic Teddy. The match is a bit one sided, but it's a handicap match for the majority of it, so it makes sense. Steen gets a brutal beating at the hands of Da Strong Style Thugz as they isolate him, namely getting the skin of his face peeled off by B-Boy from a face kick. Steen finally makes the hot tag after an extensive beatdown and Generico makes a fire-y comeback, before he gets destroyed too and Ki unmasks him which gets him massive heat. However, Ki ups the heat by putting Generico's mask on. Near the end, Teddy makes a return and hits a DDT, before he gets dumped off the top rope and Steen gets wrecked again, namely getting dropped with a brutal backdrop and a nasty double stomp from Ki off the top. Great stuff.
  14. These two have the never ending ongoing indy feud equivalent to that of Jim Cornette and Vince Russo's feud. This is the their first ever singles match and I've never seen it before despite being intrigued by it since they built their feud all over the indies namely being involved in a wild brawl at a CZW show some 14-15 years ago. It starts out a bit slow and the commentators mention Teddy injured his knee during a TNA TV taping, however that doesn't stop him from pulling out a top rope Asai moonsault on which he re-injures his knee and then it gets crazy. Homicide begins exploiting Teddy's bummed knee by constantly bashing it with wild chair shots and by doing a modified Bret Hart-esque corner figure 4. Homicide also puts a crazy beating on Teddy suplexing him into the guard rail and they brawl all over the arena and Homicide hits Teddy with a piledriver on the bleachers and he also tosses him from the bleachers. And of course, Teddy being Teddy, despite the bum knee he still hits some of his contrived offense before getting blasted by a huge lariat. Homicide continues with a post match beatdown that sees Jack Evans run out to save Teddy and he only ends up getting crushed with a running Cop Killa. Fantastic match.
  15. https://vimeo.com/19142823 British Uprising was designed to be the FWA’s signature show each year. Coming off the success of Uprising I and a good year for the company, the pressure was on for Uprising II to live up to expectation. It was a show which the company poured a lot into, but while no means a bad show – I think there’s a lot to like, especially viewed many years after the fact – for whatever reason it just didn’t land as was hoped for. As with the previous year, the FWA ran the York Hall – a great venue for wrestling – and there is a good crowd on hand. The production; from the entrance way, the video screens, onscreen graphics, ramp and use of pyro shows the time and effort put into trying to make the show feel big time, and it’s one of the reasons I always enjoyed the FWA; they were a company – for better or worse – taking those risks to try and build the UK scene. It’s clearly not WWE level production, but when compared to what indie companies on the US scene were doing at the time for example, it deserved credit. A word as well for the great Uprising opening video, introduced following a clearly ECW inspired in ring introduction from the often much maligned (they were pretty bad) but infectiously enthusiastic FWA commentary team of Tony Giles and Nick London. Finally, before getting onto the opener, this show is rather infamous for being heavily delayed because of a bomb scare, causing the building to have to be swept by the police for explosive devices. Thankfully a hoax call, but it was perhaps a sign that despite no lack of effort and goodwill, fate really was conspiring against the FWA and Uprising II that day. The opener is the culmination of a storyline that had been running for most of the year, whereby home grown up and comer Jack Xavier was being matched against a series of imports being brought over for FWA shows to prove himself. After matches against Juventud Guerrera, Chris Hamrick, Mikey Whipwreck and EZ Money comes arguably his biggest task – taking on Homicide. This match is at its best when Homicide is on top, and at times he really lays a beating on Xavier with plenty of chops and kicks and some nasty looking face washes and drop kicks in the corner, one of which looks to legitimately injure Jack’s nose. I enjoyed Homicide immediately putting on an STF at that stage and wrenching back on the now bloody nose – work that cut! Jack was able to generate sympathy from the crowd through his selling and Homicide was always a wrestler that worked well on top as a Japanese strong style/New Jack lite hybrid. Jack is able to get in some brief flurries using his pretty unique move set but nothing to where he’s able to inflict any sustained damage. Showing how much punishment he’s dished out, Homicide almost wins by count out following his trade mark tope con hilo to the outside. It’s something of an upset, both in terms of the profile of each guy and the context of the match, when Xavier ends up winning what is a fun contest. On the one hand it was good – it’s to the detriment of your own guys when the better known imports would always get put over – and it fits with the storyline of Xavier having now proved himself, but due to the nature of people’s perceptions you sense some resentment from the crowd at him going over. It’s tough, sometimes you can get over more in a hard fought loss rather than fans feel you are being over pushed. As I say though, that is only a slight sense that you get, and this is a good match that helped cement Xavier as a key player going into 2004. (***)
  16. This is the most JAPW match outside of JAPW out there. B-Boy and Homicide put an endless stiff beating on M-Dogg as if he was Teddy Hart and he had stolen his cat for the first half of the match. Just a brutal beatdown with some crazy chops and back kicks. The second half of course is the comeback from M-Dogg and Prohibition which is a bit brief. Luckily the finishing stretch wasn't them going endlessly for finishers and kicking out at 2.99. Good stuff. ***1/2
  17. It's Ringkampf vs. The Rottweilers. Homicide & Low Ki vs. Thatcher & WALTER. 2017 is wild. This was such a great match - loved how it was structured. At first we get Ringkampf pretty much dominating The Rottweilers in the ring, but once Homicide & Ki take things to outside the ring, a full blown tag brawl comes about & The Rottweilers get back into things. Lovely stuff. Loved seeing Homicide hit some of his classic signature moves, made me pop big time, Low Ki was as explosive as ever - he's so great & of course Team Ringkampf, Thatcher & WALTER, once again proved why they are 2 of the best wrestlers in the world & one of the best tag teams on the planet. Great match. ****
  18. This match is a big deal for McGuinness as he's near the bottom of the pecking order in Ring of Honor, and a win over one of the top guys like Homicide would be huge in terms of establishing himself going forward. They feel each other out as these two have never wrestled each other before, and McGuinness forces Homicide into an exhibition-y, technical match-up. The announcers try to sell Homicide as an above-average matworker, and while he's better than he's given credit for, he certainly does not feel like one in the presence of someone like McGuinness - who twists him up like a pretzel as Homicide sloppily rolls around trying to escape his holds. Homicide begins to push the pace & fight dirty once he realizes he won't get anywhere trying to beat McGuinness at his game, and he gains momentum & control doing so, but McGuinness dodges Homicide on the outside and he Lariats the ringpost, injuring his right arm. McGuinness goes right after the arm, and Homicide's selling is terrific. He's a natural righty, so his left-handed strikes are weak & his right-handed strikes don't have as much juice behind him/or he struggles to capitalize on opportunites to put McGuinness away due to the pain. McGuinness counters the Cop Killa into That Arm Submission, and Homicide tries to roll-out ... but McGuinness traps him in a roll-up for the huge upset! The lack of crowd support hurt and made the match/pacing feel dull at times, but a very good match otherwise with good, logical storytelling. Rating: ***½
  19. Chris Hero and Homicide go 40 minutes in a seedy german nightclub. This was actually quite good when they stuck to matwork and basic stuff. They understood how to make their holds meaningful, and Homicide punishing Hero with stomps, kneedrops, headbutts etc. was pretty damn good. However, some of the reversal sequences they tried came across as sloppy and Hero may have oversold as he was acting dead for much of the 2nd and 3rd fall which reflected poorly on Homicide.
