Yes, I know the title sounds like something that a 13-year-old would come up with for a wrestling show in his back yard, but this really was the woeful name given to this card.

This was the first wrestling show I'd been in about a year, with the promise of an appearance by Bret Hart, Abyss & Nigel McGuinness being enough to entice me and my mate to make the trip.

Sheffield Ice Rink must hold about 1500 people. I'd say there were about 900 in attendance. The arena was far too big for this event and as a result there was little atmosphere.

Jerry Lynn d. El Generiico

This was an enjoyable opener. Lynn took the win with his Cradle Piledriver.

Sterling James Keenan d. Doug Williams

Another good match. The dastardly SJK took the win with a foot on the ropes.

Colt Cabana d. Jonny Saint
Following a World of Sport style round-by-round system, this was really dull and seemed to go on forever.However it was nice to see the Colt Cobana character again. Did anyone get to see any of his WWE work? What was it like?

1PW Tag Team Title Match: Project Ego d. Kevin Thorn and Dragon Aisu
Probably the best match of the night. The Falls-Count-Anywhere rule brought the crowd to life.

Bret Hart came out next and said a few words, thanking everyone for coming down. His mic was very quiet.

Moralez and Fight Club d. Lionheart and BritRage
A six man tag with some British wrestlers I'd never heard of. It was ok.

1PW Openweight Title Match: Nigel McGuinness d. Johnny Moss
This match was a real letdown. I was hoping McGuinness would be dishing out some of his destructive lariats, but instead we got a very fragile looking Nigel just going through the motions.

Darkside d. Joe Egan
Joe Egan, if you didn't know, was Mike Tyson's sparring partner. Joe stepped in when Darkside's advertised opponent, boxer Ryan Rhodes, said he "wasn't allowed to wrestle by the boxing authority." That was a lame excuse considering this was one of the top billed matches. The replacement match stank.

1PW 'World' Title Match: Martin Stone d. Abyss
A so-so match with a confusing dusty finish. Abyss was given the title but then the decision was reversed by another ref who saw Abyss use a chair. So Stone won by DQ. It wasn't a popular decision, and a terrible end to the night.

To sum it up then, the first half of the show was pretty good, whilst the second half wasn’t.

But does he know why he came here tonight? Or maybe he had a feeling something ain't right.

I wouldn't consider the glass ceiling shattered unless one of those guys actually WINS. That being said, it is nice they went with these 4 guys.
