Here is my favorite Beyond Match of the Year, and one of the better matches in the world this year

 

Biff Busick v. Timothy Thatcher Beyond Wrestling "Secret Show" 4/13

These are two of the three (along with Drew Gulak) of the most exciting new group of guys in Indy wrestling. They are working Euro style matches, although Euro style that owes more to Billy Robinson and Terry Rudge then Johnny Saint and Mark Rocco. Tight agressive mat wrestling and nasty uppercuts and punches. Nothing fancy just hard hitting and rough.  The big highspot was an uppercut that knocked Busick into the wall, and came off as a bigger deal then any of the crazy shit in earlier matches. I loved Busick finish here too, great sensible counter to lock in the choke nastier and looked really tight, I bought Thatcher going out. I could watch these guys work each other a ton of times.

I've only seen a handful of matches on Youtube + most of 2013's Americanrana. I definitely like the vibe of their big shows. Chris Dickinson lives around me, I think. He's pretty good from the little I've seen of him. And I dig Busick and Gulak (does Gulak still do Beyond shows?)

 

That poster for Makin' Moves is pretty cool.

STL has a fun little indy scene and it's cool to see some of those guys get more exposure in recent years.  Have seen people like Davey Vega and Jake Dirden branch out a lot recently.  Hard to believe Dirden's only been wrestling for a little over two years.

Reposted from Wrestling KO:

 

EVOLVE 35 was a very good show: one of the better ones I've been to from a perspective of every match of the main card being solid, and some of them being great. Preshow was pretty bad, save Jesus De Leon showing some fire as a profane, arrogant heel.

Gulak showed more against Gargano than Busick did with Sabre Jr., but both matches are worth nominating. Gulak was given more and looked more competitive in a back-and-forth match, while Busick was viciously abused by Sabre until mounting a comeback. Thatcher looked completely awesome: his size and presence puts him above someone like Gulak, who for all his strengths looked more in his element at the merch stand in his Sonic the Hedgehog shirt than he did in the ring. Thatcher's opponent Tracy Williams showed a lot of promise as well. First I'd seen of Sabre Jr. I was impressed with his Euro stuff of brutal submissions where he looked to be breaking arms and fingers, less impressed with the Danielson-lite attempts at power moves and flying around.

After his match Busick challenged Thatcher, so looks like they'll be doing that one in EVOLVE too.

Galloway-Roderick Strong was really good, and not just because of Galloway. Definitely felt the most like an ROH match on the show, but Galloway comes off like a true star compared to everyone else. And after 10 years, I'm surprised to say that it kind of seems like old Rod Strong has become a good worker. He has a very believable smug heel thing going on, where he worked the whole match like a sleazy brat trying to steal a win, and it totally worked.

The tag title three-way was a lot of fun live, but it's the kind of match that would probably just end up looking like a clusterfuck of moves on tape. Fox hit some crazy dives. Rich Swann and Tony Nese were totally unimpressive: Swann in particular is very corny out there, winged tights and all, getting "Kevin Hart!" hollers from the crowd. But all the interference shenanigans, along with the crowd loving Moose, made it feel in person like a really good, reckless ECW shmozz. Highlight of the match was the move Caleb Conley hit on Fox at the end: one of the stiffest, nastiest spots I've ever seen in person.

Ricochet-Uhaa was decent, but for such a hyped match it seemed the story they were going for was badly told. They were trying a very MMA idea, where these two guys are good friends having a lighthearted bro rivalry to find out who's the best. But this lead to both of them just goofing around during what's supposed to be a title match, and never doing anything with any fire that would indicate actually trying to hurt an opponent. Hate-free wrestling isn't an entirely void concept, but neither dude was charismatic enough to pull it off, and the match they worked (indietastic "top this" stuff) is wrong for the story, which requires people who are more technically sound on the mat, and able to slow things down while building the tension. In other words, you needed Solar and Negro Navarro, or Steve Grey and Clive Myers. But Uhaa looks a million dollars live and you can totally understand why he's being pushed.

I'll wait until the tape's out to nominate anything, but Gargano-Gulak, Thatcher-Williams, Galloway-Strong, Busick-Sabre, and maybe even the elimination tag match are all well worth watching.

I haven't seen a ton of Beyond, but I thought the Kimber Lee v. JT Dunn match was really awesome. It was sub ten minutes and a very clear balls to the wall sprint, so the fighting spirit stuff didn't bother me as much as it normally would. Kimber's strikes are amazing. I love them on a level usually only reserved for things like Chuck Polumbo's punches. I'm on my phone so I can't link the match, but it's free on YouTube if someone else us so inclined.

This thread peaked my interest so I went to Beyonds YouTube channel and stumbled unto this gem, Shyron vs Ar Fox. Big fan of Fox already, this was my first look and Shynron and he was good I liked his style man. I'm guessing he is from the Wrestle Factory as the commentator says he wrestles alot for Wrestling Is & and that he won the Rey de Voladores last weekend. The match starts off slow but once it picks up they bust out a lot of cool shit.

Beyond is definitely one of the best indies around. Their entire ethos is refreshing to me, and their roster is so hugely varied that it's impossible not to enjoy something on every show. I think I might even prefer the small shows in random places more than the big shows at Fete. The atmosphere of those Dynano and CZW training center shows can't be beat. And CZW obviously took a cue from you guys since they've began running those Dojo Wars shows and putting them on YouTube. That's the Beyond influence.

 

Also, Drew is a good man and I used to IM with him a lot ten years ago.

I don't want to quote the videos, but the second (Trapped in the Closet) was the one I was referring to. I'll have to watch the other when I get off work. 

 

Thatcher really is pretty great. I like him as much as Gulak and more than Busick, I think.

There's something wildly cool about Beyond where it is hard to really call it a single promotion. Honestly, while the Fete shows are all well and good that may be the least interesting aspect of the promotion. Beyond is almost a wrestling platform more than anything and I don't think that is a bad thing one bit.

Well it looks like Beyond sadly had to cancel Makin' Moves today. The situation was completely out of their hands. 

 

Oh wow.

Sounds like Beyond did the best job possible with a bad situation though - refunds for tickets and a meet & greet with the wrestlers at the venue parking lot.

Okay, this weekend seems sorta like a blast. Honestly, DIG the dual tournaments. Beyond is really good with some BONKERS matches. While Alive and Kicking already happened, can't wait to see Ant vs Tremont. Heard good things about Busick and Bailey. That 5v5 match could very well rule. Tremont vs Stockade sticks out on TFT3. I have very little clue what is on these RWA Chop Shop shows and those might be the best part of the weekend.
