We do indeed have an indy fed here in Phoenix. While they usually have their every-other-Tuesday shows at "Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill" out in Mesa (eeesh), this Memorial Day weekend they had a show at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix.
We all know I'm not a recapper, & hopefully there'll be some video &/or recap happiness showing up online. (They were video recording the show, & there were some guys recording commentary, so I'm guessing it's just going to take them some time to get the video together.)
The short version: This was really fun, & much better quality than I'd expected it to be!! Johnny Stamboli is apparently a regular & had 2 matches (one as himself & one as Rellik.) Bill DeMott was the Guest Commissioner. And the ME ended up being Val Venis, Derick Neikirk & the former A-Train vs. the local heel contingent of The Freak Squad.
(Oddly, Tommy Dreamer had been advertised for this, but seemingly bailed several days ahead. Hence the surprise appearance by A-Train. And now I see a report (pwinsider.com) that Tommy wasn't at Impact taping. Although his twitter (twitter.com) looks quite benign.)
I'm not too keen on Spike & Tazz having the belts. These dudes couldnt win a match to save their lives when they were on their own, and now their supposed to be the tag champs? Dont get me wrong now, I'm not hating on Tazz or Spike at all.
