[Rob Blatt segment with Sami Callihan where Blatt gets THREE piledrivers after "introducing"/booking himself as pentagon's PARTNER!?] Leroy Green & Mane Event over House Of Gangone(5/10 ironic accidents) [Port Ayala Segment with Brian Burgundy] Matt Travis over ??(5/10 title shots) [Crown Jewel]Mantequilla over JT Dunn & Ken Broadway(6/10 bankrupt returns) [Progress/HOG Title]Sonya Strong & Jordynn Grace dq draw(incomplete) Big Daddy Cruz & NYWK over Trust Fund(5/10 double rejections) [Tag Title]LAX over Callihan & Pentagon(7/10 birthday rescues) [World Title 4 Way Dance]Anthony Gangone over Private Party & Red(6/10 daredevil kingpins)
[House of Haywire]Opening segment began on strong foundation,but between Rey Fenix's absence & Blatt's excessive victimization equally subtracted that foundation.(besides even callihans non fans must agree why he should still have crown jewel) "Mane Event" presented very interesting circus gimmick aiding Green score mostly surprising upset on gangone clique.(will arguements/losses lead to faction feud this year??) Talk show segment played well although was bittersweet for any remaining "larger than butter" fans. Another unexplained absence was Smiley who was supposed to face Green. Slowly improving "buttery hero" stepped up against returning Dunn & 2X ex-champ Broadway.(who needs either new allies or a solid divide-&-conquer plan to make it rain over trust fund) The highly rare & historic double title bout deserved MUCH more time(a time limit draw)and NO interruptions(former "champ" vionette?!)then it got.(knowing extra damage to progress brand makes it a no-brainer to rebook this ASAP!) Matthew R. Shapiro's association with Trust Fund resets spotlight on him.(As I said of him a year ago:bischoff's ambition & cornette's sarcasm) Highly popular(& pwi team award 3rd place)Santana/Ortiz earned another showstealer win over 1st time team.(with their considerable multi brand history it was ONLY question of WHO would back stab the other FIRST) Grand slam champion "one above all" Gangone proved yet again that regardless of odds that "champions always find a way".(despite party's obvious advantage gangone made it clear his chess game was better than their colorful checkers one) About the ring rope situation:while we all know its common sense to secure safety measures before sport play that didn't make it any less embarrassing(highly)and dangerous.(more than usual) A well established 8 year brand cannot risk this again going forward if it wants to become a multi state/national player. Grade B-

[Pre-Show Notes]Surprise flash storm happened,which may or may be a good/bad omen.(the way february show went hog fans need former)Exchanged fun chat with Swann about DGUSA/PWG history. Latin legend Tito Santana & NWO icon Scott Hall offered meet-&-greets!
[show][6-Way Suicide Title]Charles Mason over Rich Swann/Matt Macintosh/Leroy Green/Brian Burgandy/Nolo Kitano(7/10 trust fund travasties) Ultraviolet over Masha Slamovich(5/10 ref bump combos) NYWK over LAX(7/10 sad endings) [Crown Jewel]Mantequilla over MBK's Matt Travis(6/10 i-cant-believe-he's-not-butter) [Tournament Triple Threat]Ken Broadway over Smiley & Evander James(6/10 dollars make sense) Young Bucks over Private Party(8/10 super nostalgia parties)
[House of Farewells]Starting show with new belt was extra spontaneous and creative! Swann "flo-rida'd" star status,Green & Macintosh gave strong support,Burgandy had coolest off broadway intro,Mason $tole $ucce$$(from a place so secret you couldn't afford it)& debuting student was impressive enough between name/look/athletic ability i'm predicting 2020 rookie nomination! Ladies bout was respectable with extra surprise closing.(curious no update still about Sonya Strong's title rematch) Grudge tag bout was as chaotically fun as you would expect that subtracted somewhat between overused schoolboy finish and Santana/Ortiz's departure.(Dependably proud & passionate speech helped heal the damage) Quilla's 4 months from year as champ.(IS he former trl tv champ caveman??) Regarding new world title tournament,Smiley was cactus jack bold,James was spoiler smooth & Broadway rebounded from feb title loss.(predicting he'l become new "one above all") 1st tag champs Jacksons & former champs Quen/Kassidy complimented their brand legacy in highly inspiring and wise fashion!(Brian XL's heelish plot twist would've had Bischoff AND Heyman clapping) Grade B

["Salvation" 3/11/22 Recap!] [Opening segment with Red, Mantequilla & KC Navarro. Red called out top contender quilla to offer belt which he correctly declined. Navarro interrupted, dismissed quilla then claimed to be contender because red came into his match 3 years ago] Mantequilla over KC Navarro(6/10 mighty mouses) Mane Event over Amazing Greysons(6/10 circus cities) Ken Broadway over Michael Fain(6/10 dollar dollar bills) Detective James over Carlos Ramirez(5/10 fox' cop sequel?) [Crown Jewel]Low-Ki over Biff Busick(7/10 john woo killers) [Womens Title]Natalia Markova over Taya Valkyrie(7/10 russian crushes) [ROH/HOG Tag Titles]Briscoes over Penta Zero Miedo & Arez(7/10 glorious honors)
[House Of Inspiration]During entry came THIS CLOSE to adding mr x-l to hog shirt.(at least he made compliment noticing red/x-l center piece photo) NWA champ Kamille Brickhouse offered m-&-g's opposite from lucha bros.(valkyrie wisely held unchallenged post-show m-&-g. KA-CHING!$$) Cruiserweight strap situation is very compelling between one who doesn't want it, one who wants to finish earning it and a third undeserving pro who wants re-balanced respect from first pros' past perceived slight. Navarro may not have been "truly blessed" by expected loss yet he did prove more than enough skill for future title shot. Greysons were respectable enough heels while mane event have all the tools to become "main event" level stars in gimmicks SO hip & colorful wrestle circus/chikara fans would've loved them! Broadway took it to the pay window against hungry fain in above average contest. Between fashion/funds/stealing ken's catchphrase and almost committing legal crime charles mason is in ideal position to becoming top heel. Superstar icon ki continues to age like comic books & rare coins while "returning" busick hasn't lost a single step since I first saw classic style battle finals clinic 2013. Valkyrie 's a "mui grande" threat to anyone's belt while still new-to-northeast(and shine champ)markova had rising star potential. The last time lucha bros were half-hurt-in-a-title-situation they were challengers.(2/19) Then penta got a ironic top level star as partner. NOW stakes were raised a LOT more having gold, doubling down with extra gold against 19-year hall of famers and having unknown-to-usa as partner. Arez ended up proving himself as a better-than-respectable substitute for fenix. Grade B
