For a while now I’ve been seeing some awesome cards announced for southside shows and wanting to see some of their events. then a few weeks ago I saw an offer that meant you could ore order 5 shows from one weekend for a knock down price. the weekend in question had 3 of the shows I had wanted to watch so I made an impulsive purchase. Today I watched the first of the 5 events, “Adrenaline Rush”…
Joe Conners and HC Dyer vs El Ligero and Gabriel Kidd
Great way to kick off an event. I’ve seen three of these wrestle previously and always enjoyed all their matches so even though I wasn’t familiar with Dyer I figured I’d enjoy it. It was fast paced and well worked. The added dynamic of having the champion and MITB holder team was interesting too.
Jessica Havok vs Alex Windsor – Melina special guest ref
Good solid match from two seasoned performers. Very enjoyable and some good bits of tension build between Windsor and Melina – hopefully they’ll have a match.
Travis Banks v Sakamoto
Good solid match. Great heel work from Banks and some moves from Sakamoto that looked so stiff it hurt to watch!
Nixon Newell vs Chris Brooks vs Chris Tyler vs Robbie X
Incredible match. It seemed bizarre at first that a female competitor would be in a four way with three male competitors. But then I figured that that is probably am outdated idea and that actually there is no reason why there shouldn’t be, and Nixon Newell certainly proved she can Al hang with the guys, she was a stand out performer and deserving winner in my view. The match was great, some excellent one on one wrestling and some great multi man spots.
Sami Callihan vs Chris Ridgeway
This match started at 100 miles and hour and didn’t really let up. Sami Callihan is a phenomenal performer and Chris Ridgeway proved a worth opponent. Great moments of comedy and some great bits of wrestling and fighting. Great match.
Damian Dunne vs Chris Tyler
Impromptu match, with Chris Tyler pulling double duty. Fast paced. Great spots, great story telling. Excellent match around. Definitely glad it was added to the bill!
Bubblegum vs Rey Fenix
This was a superb match and a worthy main event. I’ve seen Bubblegum many times and ive always been impressed, but this is probably the best match of his I’ve seen. I can’t wait to see him take on Cody Rhodes in Bradford. Fenix was Phenomenal as always and I think the pair of then had styles that meshed really well together.
I thoroughly enjoyed this event and can’t wait to watch the rest of the weekend.
