Really good turnout for Dynamo, good to see.
Guessing it was the pro debut for Dirty Jake Dirgen...he looked decent for his first match. El Sanchez dropped down the ladder in a hurry, sorry to say...
Rough night for Jackal against a much larger opponent...Alexandre Rudolph has been improving a lot.
I mentioned this at the previous show...the Tag Title tournament was REALLY light on heels. All three tourney matches on this show were face vs. face since the heel teams were gone in the first round. That meant some awkward match flow on a few occasions...tag team wrestling is a different animal than singles competition if you're not used to it. If it's face vs. heel, there's a specific match pattern that always works(heel cheapshot leads to face taking abuse, hot tag to fresh partner, etc.)...for a face vs. face matchup, it's a LOT tougher since the fans don't have a clear side to support. Personally, I would have trouble coming up with a match plan if I was a wrestler in a face/face or heel/heel tag match...
Good match between Santana Garrett(now using her full last name) and Christina Von Eerie(who I honestly hadn't seen much before)...they'd had a few matches in Florida and also wrestled at Metro Pro on Saturday night.
Ricky Cruz vs. Kevin X was also face vs. face, but they still put together a good solid matchup. Kevin is moving out of the area so this was his last match in the Midwest...he's wrestled around here since the MRW days. Cruz is pretty much undefeated in Midwest wrestling(thought he lost by DQ to Dave Vaughn and was pinned in the best-of-three-falls match with Ron Powers...he lost the deciding fall by countout).
I was told that Trent Stone was injured, so Cancun Kid took his place...hadn't seen him in quite a while. He had been WLW Tag Champ with Eathon Wright but one or the other was injured and they had to forfeit the belts. Good matchup with K.C. CHEATING TO WIN~! First time I had ever seen a manager(Greg Jovi) hit someone with a hairbrush...
While new Tag Champs have been crowned, the First Chuch Of Karrington(FCK, ha ha) stole the belts so the Bumrush Brothers have to chase them to get their property back...yeah, I also noticed Mike Sharona's title spells out DIC(Director In Charge).
While Cruz-X was the exception, my other favorite matches of the night had the standard face/heel setups(Karrington-Cancun, Pearce-Kahagas). Also, not a lot of flippies in those matches either...SO HA~!
Pearce was an awesome heel...kinda dug his entrance in NWA Anarchy with no theme music since it was TOTAL oldschool. He even ripped up a fan's sign on the way around the ring. When he got back to the fan, he picked up the pieces of the sign...and tore them into smaller pieces. Bwahaha.
Reportedly Pearce dropped the NWA World Title to Colt Cabana on Sunday night...a Dusty Finish could still happen, but I was wondering why Sharona's announcement of Pearce vs. Cruz for the next show didn't specifically mention the title. CONSPIRACY THEORY~!
Anywho...surprisingly light month in the St. Louis area for wrestling. The rest of the month looks like South Broadway and East Carondelet for me.
