Fabulous Fitness over ??(4/10 richard simmons) Joey Ryan over Richard Holliday(6/10 candice ballplexes) [Konnan segment with Salina De La Renta & Ricky Martinez] Puma King over Ricky Martinez(6/10 k-dogs) [Simon Gotch Prizefight Challenge]Simon Gotch over Fallah Bahh(6/10 vaudevillains) Smash-n-Dash Connection over Samoan Island tribe(6/10 m.o.m.'s) Myron Reed over Marko Stunt(6/10 flying acecrushers) [Middleweight Title]MJF over Jason cade & Jimmy Yuta( 6/10 triple champions) Hijo De LA Park over Sammy Guevara(7/10 salinas) Brody King over Tommy Dreamer(5/10 tattooed terrors) Tom Lawlor over Shane Strickland(7/10 musical thieves) Mew Foundation over Marko Stunt/ACH/Rich Swann(7/10 marko massacres) [Spin the Wheel,Make the Deal]Sami Callihan over Jimmy Havoc(7/10 you sick @#%&) [World Title]Lowki over Daga(7/10 blood warriors) LA Park over PCO(7/10 ageless wonders)
[Major League Madness]Production design was high level and building easy to find. Bruce Pritchard-Tony Shiavone-Matt Striker made up color team.(triplemania was SO problem plagued that AAA should make striker its new booker!) Referee Kris Levin(11 yr vet who I met at king of trios)was rock solid with stars & unflappable with fans. Extreme icon Stephen Deangelis handled ring announcing!(when will the "other voice of extreme" realize hall of fame?) "Sultan of sleaze" Ryan was filthy fine while current super 8 champ Holliday earned his PWI coverage in fine fashion. Brands power struggle between icon Konnan & Salina(a lady with elizabeth's charm & francines's ambition)was effectively compelling. Puma King has star potential. Gotch's slowly rebuilding himself as a true indy professional. S-N-D team reminds me of wwf's mabel & mo. Triple belt champ Friedman's enjoying breakthrough year.(& pwi award nomination) Park Jr & Guevara have star potential. Give credit for Lawlor's well rounded work yet subtract that credit for stealing nigel mcguinness's music?! Congrats to PCW-Evolve champ strickland's engagement! Hart has new chance to rebuild status in new home,Smith reinforced family legacy(& complimented suzuki gun)adding signature to my iwgp shirt and future star Pillman Jr made his old man proud.(showstealer highspot of entire event & probable 2018:Doomsday.Device.Canadian.Destroyer.) Must admit that(still mostly unknown)Stunt has some promise. MLW champion Ki(who should've been anywhere in current pwi 500)hasn't lost much of any of his weapons after 21+ years! "L-A-P & P-C-O" equally deserve PWI unofficial/official award nominations for their surprisingly stiff & agile story! Grade B

[Pre-Show Notes]2 different staff people didn't know "mila guzman".(lady I emailed 4X without reply about press box material) pwinsider.com's Mike Johnson also covering show. Shared cool hip chat with Simon Grimm where he gave half of his shirt tag.(haha) "Injustice" took page from NWO using protest signs like they were paid fans!
[pre-show]1)squash 2)Contra Unit(Josef Samuel/Simon Grimm)over Sky & Dominguez(squash) 3)Mance Warner over Rick Martinez(semi-squash) [main show]Low-ki over Jimmy Yuta(ko squash) Davey Smith over Timothy Thatcher(7/10 british strong styles) Von Erichs over Spirit Squad(5/10 sound effects) Injustice(Oliver-Reed-Brazil)over Gringo Loco/Zenshi/Wildcat(7/10 just deserts) Brian Pillman Jr over Richard Holliday(6/10 surprise scores) Bestia 666 over Rey Horus(6/10 tijuana devils) [National Openweight Title]Alexander Hammerstone over Savio Vega(6/10 rican dynasties) Austin Aries over Ace Austin(7/10 next middleweight champs) [Middleweight Title]Teddy Hart over Maxwell Jacob Friedman(7/10 canadian dynasty destroyers) [World Title]Jacob Fatu over Tom Lawlor(7/10 contra units) Zenshi over Hijo De L-A Park(6/10 spirit dragons) L-A Park over Jimmy Havoc(7/10 promociones dorado)
[Major League Expansion]Sadly Tony Shiavone & Jim Cornete were absent. New addition Georgia Smith represented brand(& her family)with strong potential. Grimm's moved forward considerably from ex-wwe partner while underrated Samuel has defy & pcw ultra tag gold! Still unbeaten Warner continues to be question that Salina can't answer.(btw how is fire illegal but chainsaws aren't??) Ex champ Ki continued mike tyson like streak before reminding some fans of the principled role model he was as JAP-ICW-ROH champion. Very underrated Thatcher gave very strong performance while Smith made it clear he's much more than just a tag team star! The "musical malfunction" subtracted too much from what could've been an above average Erich-Squad story.(fans & pros deserve re-book) Latest heel trio of Reed-Oliver-Brazil made point of their cause in well balanced spotfest! Pillman Jr secured sizeable win over vain tag champ Holliday. 666 proved a worthy investment of Salina over a game Horus. 1st openweight champ Hammerstone is proving to be Dynasty's foundation besides its muscle. Carribean champ Vega stayed in respectable shape. Austin is certainly a future star to watch while all around veteran Aries is on track to become "belt collector" once again. Between his clique,his belt & cat collection,22 year vet Hart is as much at home here as he ever was in JAP.(minus the controversial immaturity) Tag champ/dynasty leader MJF could be fastest rising male 2019 star.(I dare you to ask him why) Fatu's a surprisingly versatile pro who with more promo skill could become most improved dominant islander champion since 2003 somoa joe. Former "ninja with altitude"/double latin american champ Zenshi can out fly ANYONE from any brand! "Salina's personal destroyer" Park is as popular(gets extra $$ like trent acid)as he is extreme after 37 years!(besting "england's most dangerous man") Konnan & Salina's war rages on.(one would think that having numbers edge she could've regained cell at any time already) Lastly,with all the very impressive moves Mr Bauer's made this year it's overdue for MLW to start offering videotape merch. Grade B
