soup23 posted a topic in October 2000Jeff Gorman is on commentary. This is a 3 way but Reckless can’t join the match until after five minutes. Opening between Quack and Don was well done with some chain wrestling and escalating into more strikes before Reckless enters. Reckless enters around 10 minutes in instead of five and then the match results in more of a indie 3 way but everything was hit cleanly and there was some innovation. The crowd isn't really into it which hurts and there is some inconsistency in as much as the match is an elimination match but pins keep getting broken up. Valentine and Adam Flash come out and interfere in the end along with a woman that low blows Reckless. Montoya hits the pyramid bomb and it looks like he is in cohoots with the heels instead of his friends on the Black T-Shirt Squad. A good three way that showed all three of these guys had more polish than your run of the mill indie worker in 2000. *** (6.2)
soup23 posted a topic in April 2000This starts with an angle of Dan Moreland coming out and saying Quack isn't there. After DOn Montoya gets in a few Rock rip offs, here comes Quack to a big pop. He takes care of Moreland and Quack is back forgetting the retirement from the last show. This is when Quack is wearing special gear that he described on his podcast as being impossible to take off. This is announced as lucha style with no piledrivers and no low blows. Quack does a really good job in these maestro matches making stuff look competitive while still displaying the style and art of wrestling. They mix up holds and stuff is intricately worked with only a minor botch on a floatover. Montoya is good on commentary getting everything across. Santo shows respect for Quack by rallying the fans in the final moments. The 15 minutes really did fly by here. ***1/2
This is being billed as Quack’s retirement match which in retrospect is more insulting than Foley at No Way Out. Montoya in this snarky heel role really reminds me of Kevin Steen once he comes on the scene. Overall I thought this match had some good ideas but was way too long in execution. At one moment, a patron throws a drink at Montoya and he is pissed off as the announcer runs down the fan. I didn’t like the banana peel finish that allows Quack to get the win. A weird angle follows as the promoter informs Quack that Santo is coming in next month and he wants the belt. Quack doesn’t really answer him one way or another. **3/4
