I enjoyed the show. I didn't see Sound Guy, but Smoke was there -- if that impresses anyone.
Orsini and Mercedes were great, as always. Luscious, also -- although she only wrestled once. Loved seeing Christie Ricci and April Hunter. Not to mention Lucy Furr, Rogers, et al.
Best new angle was the Canadian contingent invading. Especially the tag match between April Hunter and Annie Social against Canadian newcomers (to WEW) Cat Power and Miss Danyah.
A bit of a tiring weekend though, as I logged about 850 miles going to WEW on Friday, attending some business meetings in Harrisburg on Sat. and Sun., and going to JAPW (in Jersey City) Saturday night (to see the amazing Angel Orsini take on Jana). This after going close to 500 miles to see WSU the previous Sat. Over the Independence Day Weekend, I'll catch Mercedes Martinez (hopefully) and the rest of the SHIMMER roster in Illinois.
Hopefully, the reconstituted DWOW will do shows a bit closer to Maryland -- Eastern PA, Delaware, South Jersey, Northern VA -- or perhaps even in Maryland, itself. Baltimore's always been a great wrestling city. (Even POWW drew a decent crowd there a number of years back.)
I have to admit that seeing April Hunter in the ring was a dream come true. After hearing of her physical ailments, I despaired that I might never have the chance to see wrestle live. Although being fearful that she might get tossed around a bit too much and suffer further injury might not be the best way to enjoy a match, it was still quite the thrill to see her at the WEW show.
As far as POWW is concerned, well ... 20 is a number (albeit a rather significant one). Even after these many years, Pali, I can still vividly recall the excitement of seeing the subject of your avatar at that event.
We heard that the show was good, but it lacked that unexpected mayhem. We also heard that crowd was not as strong as past outings --but hell it is summertime and people go away. I guess all us freaks can just watch the ppv for the adult scenes! lol
Wow, now to think of it the women's wrestling fan connaisseur gets what he wants now with shimmer, wew, and wsu all presenting "women's wrestling" in its fullest form featuring mainly women. Let's see how that goes. I'm curious to see.
