With the way that they seemed to be handling things for the shows themselves I initially though they had this part taken care of.  Really sucks that that wasn't the case.  I'm still hoping there aren't too many more positive cases as the risk of a super-spreader event is higher than I initially thought.

I found out from a few of the workers that they didn't test.  I know a worker who was not part of the collective but did test positive and he shared his results online with everyone. The promoter got pissed at him for doing that.  Some promoters are still carny as ever and during a pandemic it is really starting to show.

Fuck, man.  This honestly puts a huge damper on the Collective shows for me.  I was planning to watch more but tests weren't required I feel I'll be looking worried about who was or wasn't positive at the time.  I might just finish the Spring Break show and wait for these to come to IWTV.  Hopefully at that point the dust will settle a bit better.

Most indy promotions aren't requiring them which to me shows how much they truly care for both the workers and fans. Like I mentioned, an indy worker in Pittsburgh was positive prior to the Collective and he came out online to tell everyone.  The promoter bitched at him for doing so.  Any promoter not testing prior to a show OR making his workers including ref, camera crew etc  show negative tests should lose their license immediately.

I'm doing a Movember 2020 fundraiser where I review a "Match A Day" (M.A.D. Dog), and the matches are chosen by those who donate. Initially I suggested $10 but in this day and age, I dropped to "almost" any donation. I had three matches thus far, but no more donations so...if you wanna toss a couple bucks at a fundraiser and get put in a draw for some indie wrestling swag: [email protected] is the place to e-transer donations and match suggestions.

 

1. Nikita vs. Magnum, Best of 3 Falls from Sept. 13, 1986

2. John Tenta & Rick Davis dominate on All-Star TV, circa 1986

3. Scarlett Black vs. Jade, Pinfalls Anywhere (2018 Big West Match Of The Year)

NGI today at 1pm (a civilised 6pm for us Brits)... who ya got? I’m going AJ Gray...

After looking as the results of the NGI and today's show, I'd guess Ol' Mancer finally signed with someone and is closing out his indy run.

I didn't get that at all, but who knows in these crazy times? I didn't actually enjoy the NGI much, and not because I'm a lousy tipster, but So Much Fun was a great show with a really hot finish. The Alex Zayne thing is weird, though, because while he can be thrilling at times he's actually not that good, and Blake Christian is far better, but if he wants to earn money for hanging around the Performance Centre for a couple of years, more power to him, I guess.

Wow, couldn't possibly disagree more. Blake Christian is cool and all, but Alex Zayne is in my opinion the best highflyer in the world right now not named Ospreay or Bandido.

I really enjoyed the opener: I never cared much for Jordan Oliver but since the pandemic he's become a strong hot open guy. His match with Juicy Finau at another recent GCW event was good...but this was awesome. Jacob Fatu losing his shit when he hurt his eye and fucking Matt Justice up was entertaining, and the clusterfuck had...moments. Sefa Fatu has a good  look and you know he'll be in NXT very soon...but he is green and seems really scared to take dives and moves from his foes. A credit to Facade to get this match back on the rails because it full-on falls APART in the finishing stretch. Juicy/RSP was interesting for Page doing the "you don't belong" schtick and then Juicy getting his face busted up and proving he could still hang. RSP is a perfect indie heel champion as he looks like shit but he can GO.

Warner vs. Cogar was a lot of fun, and Kikutaro/Kat was fun in a super silly way...about the only time Joey Janela's drunken "fuck this" commentary worked, though. He can be a real business-exposing dink when he's in a White Claw frame of mind. I also liked the pre-show promos (that they used 3-4 times during the show), of 44OH! playing poker (and Gregory Iron saying he had A BAD HAND), and Lio crying in his living room after losing the first encounter with Blake (which was also super good).

Blake/Lio II was...artistic? Filmed beautifully? I have to watch it again because my edibles kicked in and I'm not sure it was filmed as creepy/artistically as I perceived it. Both my girlfriend and I were certain Lio's makeup was wriggling on his face, and that opening dancer dude creeped me the eff out.
