TonyPulis'Cap posted a topic in December 2010This is for the NWA Title in the pre-Corgan NWA era, and Colt Cabana is the special referee. Colt vs. Pearce was the main storyline they were heading in for the title at this point. It is a very young Willie Mack, but you can already see his charisma and in his mannerisms that he can get the crowd behind him. They are clearly going for a Ric Flair vs. Dusty Rhodes vibe here, even down to the early flip flop and fly elbow from Mack and there’s lots of babyface shine from the challenger early on. Pearce is very good as the old school stooging, stalling heel, but if we are all honest, pretty boring on offence. I do appreciate the way he carries himself in his 80s throwback style, but he was never the most thrilling or dynamic of wrestlers. The match is therefore at its best when Pearce is selling for Mack’s explosive offence, and given his limited experience, Mack is very good here. Cabana threatens to award the title to Mack when Pearce is threatening to get counted out but ends up getting taken out when on the outside. He manages to recover to stop Pearce using the title and gives Mack a nearfall, before he then accidentally takes Willie out when going for Pearce. From there the match breaks down into more of an angle for a Pearce vs. Cabana match, but I guess a schmoz ending is a fitting tribute to an 80s style title match. I enjoyed the old school presentation – something I’m a sucker for, and before the ending we were trending to (***) but settled on (** ¾)
ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in May 2017LU is back with a bang - just when I thought the hype behind the company is dead, they return with a match like this. One of the best matches the company has put on so far. Much like in the first All Night Long match (vs. Prince Puma), this was a total Johnny Mundo show - he is absolutely amazing in his role. Loved him dominating the early stages of the match, that made him super confident & cocky, so when Mack started to muster those offensive flurries in - even getting a one fall in, he started to show great desperation & then he brilliantly fakes an injury. Classic heel spot. The stuff w/ all the interferences was done super well. The drama in the final moments w/ Willie busting out that huge dive from the ladder, only for the time to run out was pretty great. Terrific stuff all around - amazing character performance from Mundo & Mack was there with him all the way through w/ his great facial expressions & strong offense. ****1/2
