Summer of Wrestling 2016 #5 – PWG Threemendous IV

Here is week 5 of the Summer of Wrestling 2016. I'm going very slow with these posts, but I still want to do 14 weeks of this series even if I don't finish it until 2017. This week is more PWG because I still had my Highspots Wrestling Network subscription. They had PWG Threemendous IV uploaded to the website which is a recent PWG show from July 24, 2015 and I hadn't seen it yet so I wanted to check it out.

The Rules:

1. I will review at least 5 matches per week for 14 weeks.
2. Every wrestling promotion is eligible for the Summer of Wrestling.
3. Every match I review must be a match I have never seen in its entirety before. If I can’t remember what happened in the match, it is eligible. Matches I’ve seen several times or know very well are not eligible for the Summer of Wrestling.
4. Not every match I watch this summer will be reviewed during the Summer of Wrestling. Matches from any upcoming wrestling show or Pay-Per-View are eligible if I watch them. The matches I review will be picked before I watch them.

The Matches:

1. Team Tremendous (Bill Carr & Dan Barry) vs. Candice LeRae & Joey Ryan ***1/2
2. Brian Cage vs. Johnny Gargano ***1/4
3. Andrew Everett vs. Rich Swann ***
4. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Trevor Lee ***1/4
5. "Speedball" Mike Bailey vs. Chris Hero ****
6. Ricochet vs. Akira Tozawa ***1/4
7. Young Bucks vs. Jack Evans & Angelico ****

You probably noticed I didn't write anything after each match. I decided to talk about the matches from PWG Threemendous IV here. The tag team match between Bill Carr and Dan Berry vs. Candice LeRae and Joey Ryan was a great opener. Team Tremendous looked tremendous here (pun intended). Like usual, I felt like Joey Ryan added little to the match. Cage vs. Gargano was a nice match, but I thought it could have been better if given more time. I liked the David (Gargano) vs. Goliath (Cage) story they seemed to be telling. Everett vs. Swann was disappointing. They did some cool moves, but I didn't really notice a story and they wasn't really any near-falls. Ciampa vs. Lee was good, but it didn't feel like they were trying to steal the show. It never really felt like it was going to be a great match. That's disappointing because a match like Ciampa vs. Lee could be a main event in AAW. Bailey vs. Hero was easily the best match I saw. It started a little slow, but it got better and the near-falls were good. I was expecting it to be a little better, but I think it's a four star match. Ricochet vs. Tozawa was disappointing. I thought there would be more near-falls and it didn't feel like the match went into that second gear. I wasn't blown away by it. A good match, but I was expecting more. The main event of the Threemendous IV card was the Young Bucks vs. Jack Evans and Angelico. It was an easy four star match like most Young Buck matches. There were some really good spots by both teams, Overall, there were no bad matches like all PWG shows, but I wanted more four star matches and I was disappointed that none of the matches were amazing.

Top 5 Matches of the Week:

1. "Speedball" Mike Bailey vs. Chris Hero ****
2. Young Bucks vs. Jack Evans & Angelico ****
3. Team Tremendous (Bill Carr & Dan Barry) vs. Candice LeRae & Joey Ryan ***1/2
4. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Trevor Lee ***1/4
5. Ricochet vs. Akira Tozawa ***1/4

  1. The very first query they'll rolex replica sale on their own is actually, have all of us provided back-colored wrist watches previously. inch When the solution is actually no, inch they may move ahead. Obviously, it's possible to retort along with the truth that replica watches sale there have been absolutely no especially great methods for durably layer steel rolex replica uk within dark or even additional colours. PVD-coating along with other methods tend to be fairly contemporary. Therefore provided these types of brand new systems, will rolex replica possess a great motivation to provide black-coated wrist watches. Obviously the rolex replica sale is determined by whether Rolex can perform this differently, inch in an exceedingly top quality as well as unique method.
