    Yeah. It's from a reigns Camacho vs Ambrose sandow match from a fcw live event in Orlando years ago.
  2. Impact Wrestling Spoilers for 2/15/18

    Sami/Lashley and Ishimori/Fantasma were pretty fun. I hope they keep Fantasma around after the LU tapings air. The Lashley match was Sami's best match I've seen in a while and it was almost entirely thanks to Lashley. I missed last week's episode but I really enjoyed Sonjay on commentary. A breath of fresh air and he works well with Josh. I like how he totally ignored Hania during her match with Rosemary. I guess that's cause she's already gone from the company.
  3. Top 20 NXT Characters

    So I'm basing this on going to shows for years and seeing these acts grow. My list is probably a bit different than others. 1. Bayley: The queen of Full Sail. She carried the brand after Sasha and Charlotte left after Sami left and after Finn left. I remember her first appearance when she got booed off the screen. She along with the other horsewomen and women like Emma and Paige changed everything. Just a great character and story. 2. Sami Zayn: They call him the heart and Soul of NXT and it's true. I remember when his first appearance after he won the title at Full Sail. It was just nuts. A part of NXT died when he left and it will never return. 3. Emma: Yeah Emma is gonna be very high on my list. And not Evil Emma but dancing Emma. That character was perfect for NXT. It got people to react and felt organic at the time. I say this a lot but Emma/Santino vs Fandango/Summer is still the best match I've seen at Full Sail. I figured the character would die a death on the main roster but it was perfect for pre-touring NXT. 4. Enzo and Cass: Two guys that made each other better and were lost without each other. I remember when Cass was in FCW doing a Brooklyn gimmick and thinking "why is he even signed except for that he's tall?" When Enzo came in, it was like a spark hit his brain and it got the ball moving. Adding Carmella with them made it even better. They were the ultimate opening match guys on NXT live events. Kinda like what No Way Jose is now but better. 5. Finn Balor: Just an incredible run in NXT. Had great matches, was treated like a superstar in a era where only guys from the main roster that came down were and carried the brand for months after others left. I'm not a big fan of the demon character but regular Finn was cool. 6. Bo Dallas: An important character in the early days of NXT. He was so hated in Full Sail that it was like Roman today. The Mr. NXT angle was so simple but worked masterfully. Another highlight was his segment with Big Dave Batista. 7. Adam Rose: I liked the Leo Kruger gimmick but I loved the early Adam Rose gimmick. Sure it was basically just a entrance and he wasn't that great in the ring but he was over. Plus, the gimmick brought us plenty of other people like Becky and Braun. 8. Tye Dillinger: An example of what a crowd can do for a person. Tye was dead in the water after the failed team with Jordan. He tried so many gimmicks like the time he did a ballet gimmick and gymnastics during dark matches. The 10 gimmick is so simple but he got it over by never quitting and the crowd got him noticed. Then it just spread like wildfire. 9. Sasha banks: She might be a little low on my list but man the Boss Character was so great. Her with Summer Rae going after women like Emma and Bayley was just perfect for the time. The zenith of the character was the ironwoman match with Bayley and the time she scared Izzy. 10, Tyson Kidd: I loved Tyson's run in the NXT. Especially his matches with Curtis Axel in the early days of Full Sail. Some of the best matches of the time. He's a good example of a guy that got rehabbed in NXT after a run on the main roster. I wish they would do that with other guys these days but I guess the roster is too bloated these days to do that.

    That wasn't as bad as the USA chant during the Marcel vs Boa match. Granted it was only a few people but still noticeable. Fun show tonight in a new building. Heavy Machiner/Gargano vs Undisputed Era was the match of the night. The era selling the Machinery's bearhugs was awesome. Mendoza/Almas was good but the crowd died after a horrible women's match before it.

    It should be good. Not Fenix/Pentagon good but I like both guys and looking forward to the match. That card on Thursday is stacked, almost too stacked. Gonna be a long night. Hope I can make it.

    Went to FIP tonight in Ybor city. Fun show was an awesome Darby Allin vs Jon Davis match where Darby almost dies multiple times and a crazy brawl between the hooligans and the End(Parrow and Odison). This show was a reboot of sorts of the FIP brand after the failed Sami and Friends era. Austin Theory is the FIP champ and he's gotten his look down straight and had a good match with Martin Stone.
  7. Impact Wrestling Spoilers for 2/1/18

    I don't like the guy that much but I felt bad for Eli. He's been the top heel for months and then gets treated like a geek by Aries in under 5 minutes. Another "new era" that didn't feel new except for the new ring. Nice to see Kiera Hogan in the knockouts division. Been a fan for a while. Hopefully, she gets enough tv time to get an NXT deal in a year or two.

    I keep up with the cards on Facebook. There are some groups for the local indies like Florida Wrestling Community. Here is the poster for the event. It's kinda outdated due to injuries. Fashion takes on Mecha Wolf and Fantasma replaces Pagano teaming with Psycho Clown vs Savio and Carlito. I'm mostly going to see Invader 1 as it's been big controversey in the local media and I want to be there if he actually shows up.

    If you go to MLW, make sure you get a good seat cause standing room in that building sucks. Fest wrestling is running it's big tag tourney on the 9th and 10th in St. Petersburg and Gainesville which is about a two hour drive. I'll be at the big AAA vs Puerto Rico show in Orlando on the tenth headlined by savio Vega and Carlito vs fantasma and texano. USA pro is supposedly running a anniversary show on the 11th in Orlando but haven't heard much about it.
  10. SDL is The Tragic Death of The Ascension - 11/28/2017

    They've already been wrestling for a decade. I'm guessing they bump that way cause they are small.

    In St. Augustine tonight, NXT had a Pete Dunne vs Kassius Ohno main event. Sad I missed that.

    Usually, it's 7-8 matches. The main event is usually tv guys when there isn't a traveling loop. Most of the undercard is non-tv guys. Lately, it's been the Chinese guys vs vets. Last show I went to had Itami vs Gargano.

    Because Live events are down overall and they want the non tv shows to mean something?
