[Smoothe Blackmon & Chris Seaton subbed for pre-show bout] Show began with HOG boss Rob Blatt. [4 Corner Survival]David Starr over Smiley/Tracy Williams/Ken Broadway(7/10 starrs) [MMA Special Feature]Chuck O'Neil over Matt Riddle (4/10 dana whites) Lufisto over Sonya Strong(5/10 super hardcore animes) Johnathan Gresham over Brian Fury(7/10 hericons) [HOG Tag Title]Private Party over HitSquad(8/10 partays) [Scramble Tag]2 Kliq over NYWK/Super Savages/Team Tremendous(7/10 heels) Kamaitachi over Chris Dickinson(7/10 arigatos) EYFBO over Beaver Boys. [HOG Word Title]Anthony Gangone over JT Dunn(7/10 juicy gangs)
[house of beyond] Compared to Evolve's La Boom location,(also in queens)Club Amazura's ideal address(LIRR station-bus lanes-parking options),artistis flair(large lionhead in between roman style columns exterior) & much larger space PLUS social media section makes it highly ideal for any small/medium brand looking to expand its base. Interrupted opening with Mr. Blatt made 4CS bout 15 minutes late. Starr earned win,Smiley was comedically cool,Williams deserved more heat for debut & Broadway walked away!?(costing oneself that much dollars doesn't make sense) Got what was expected from mma bout however implied feud might benefit both men. Adding 19 yr superstar Lufisto gave extra international flavor to whole show! Sonya worked story well and has "strong" star potential. Rising star Gresham(i call him "young black styles")deserves regular northeast booking while "firebrand" told his side of story considerably well. Tag Champs party retained over GCW/CZW champs hitsquad in emotional showstealer!(after reuniting 13 years later mack & maff still got it!) NJP rookie kamaitachi gave good ringwork while rising star dickinson made himself look like a winner complimenting victor then challenging DREW GALLOWAY!? scramble tag was respectably good with bill carr/dan barry adding "interspecies style" teamwork. Artist/fan Lawrence Appel plugged expert level illustrations so reach him at 6462966736. Kudos to Red,Brian XL & Beyond on this grade B show.

"Hollywoods Top Models" over House Of Gangone & Golden Lyons(5/10 tyra banks) Matt Travis over Ken Broadway & Leroy Davis(5/10 kicks) [MTV TRL TV Title]Caveman over El Hombre Bestia(5/10 flintstones) ["esquire of excellence" Matt Shapiro interrupts booker Rob Blatt with "Royal Masons" team who is then challenged by Smoothe Blackmon] Royal Masons over Smoothe Blackmon(4/10 shapiros for prez) House Of Gangone over Larger Than Butter(TJ Marconi/Brian Burgandy/Mantequilla)(4/10 fright nights) [Crown Jewel Title]Evander James over Homicide(5/10 overdue ripoffs) Sonya Strong over Ivelisse Velez(7/10 upsets) [Tag Title]Santana/Ortiz over Private Party(7/10 diamente azuls) [World Title]Red over Low-ki(8/10 amazing legacies)
[House Of Surprises] Having chance to discuss birthday gift with legendary manager JIMMY HART(jan 1)was extra fulfilling.(@realjimmyhart) Attendance was somewhat surprising(400-500,a full "house")knowing february as other slowest time besides january. Caveman has strong underdog star potential.(although wearing a belt based on a certain music network that changed too much from its original purpose is something that should be renamed) Hell manager Matthew Ryan Shapiro has bischoff's ambition & cornette's sarcasm. Expert level(even by MY standards!)artist Larry Appel showcased some samples.(5165794375) I credit blackmon's bravery answering royal mason's challenge but doing it solo & injured wasn't smart or practical. Crown Jewel bout deserved better quality & finish.(main reason gangone/lax feud would work is if diamente/ki were available making it even odds) Velez & Strong were true representatives for womens pro wrestling in a well balanced story that earned extra "strong" double name pop! The ever improving party came THIS CLOSE(like wonder womans oscar nomination snubbing)to being 2X champs while santana/ortiz proved why their 5 BELTS makes them among best in the world!(eddie guererro would've applauded their balanced teamwork) Pro wrestling's "hitman"(& former champ)ki proved why HES STILL GOT IT while "mr amazing"("I WILL NOT DIE!")red made it VERY clear he's not retiring yet in very stiff & very emotional story!!(mortal kombat stage sequence was so nerd friendly you could imagine it on broadway) grade B

1:Hollywoods Top Models over TJ Marconi/Leroy Green(5/10 heidi klums) Jeff Jarrett segment interrupted by new jabroni who then got "slapnut treatment"! 2:[countout/brawl]Matt Travis over Ken Broadway(6/10 $$upsets) 3:Sonya Strong over Jessicka Havoc(5/10 uncrowned champions) House Of Gangone segment where Anthony complained about Red's injuries & absence who's then interrupted by private party. 4:House of Gangone over Private Party by DQ(7/10 party poopers) 5:Ultimo Dragon over Mantequilla(5/10 icons) Segment with Miranda Vionette's open challenge answered by Strong who was beat down then saved by Havoc! 6:Santana/Ortiz over House of Gangone(6/10 block party partays) 7:[Crown Jewel]Sami Callihan over Evander James(6/10 d.u.f.'s) [house of starpower] Between semi surprising attendance(extra busy summer season start)and loaded guest star lineup of icons/legends(not of course neglecting my "6-6 surprise")gave HOG overall bragging rights for must see show! Speaking of which:said surprise was brand's FIRST UNOFFICIAL SHIRT!!(tanks for 1st signage Rob Blatt) HTM has interesting gimmick but lacks goldust's menacing mystery or castle's comedic flair. Special credit for hall-of-famer Jarrett(now 2X AAA champion)putting over brand,making a nobody somebody AND presenting raffle prize![@realjeffjarrett] On one hand the slowly improving Travis is earning hot streak yet on other hand doing so at expense of a former 2X jewel champ who won world title shot at previous show was confusing & inappropriate.(if broadway dont make dollars then-it-dont-make-sense) Finally understand why Havoc(no relation to LU star Matt Cross)has the respected/feared rep she has while it's no longer a question of IF but WHEN Strong holds that gold.(& bring severely necessary balance to womens division!) Gangone/Party was all around best story only semi tainted by Red's bad timing. Dragon's in VERY impressive shape for his age(I started YOU STILL GO IT! pop)while Quilla did respectable work. Ortiz/Santana let their cultural freak flag fly leading a sea of rican colors in a celebration that was SO emotional it deserves to be added to PWI'S yearly review!! In card's largest surprise Callihan wind crown jewel in his DEBUT!(looks like if anyone didn't trust James as champion that now everyone will trust that Sami will leave deepest mark on this division) Grade B-
