Downloadable HERE!: http://video.mpegnation.com/a0013636940390...5113346870.html Just so we don't get accused of a Southern bias (HA!), I will review this weekly. I get e-mail from JAPW every other day it seems like and yet i never think to watch the streaming show on the internets. THOSE DAYS ARE OVER! Love it....
- Skinhead Ivan and the Bandito Jr have a match. For a racist skinhead, Ivan sure gave a man with darker skin quite a bit of offense before squashing him with two standing Rolling Guillotines. Only in the north... Postmatch, Ivan yells indecipherably at Jay Lethal until Lethal starts beating on him and we have a pull apart and thus this works. On all indie simulcasts, every pull apart works.
- Archadia and Deranged both need to go to Hardee's for lunch everyday for a year. They do nifty Northeastern Junior Heavyweight wrestling that tops off with Deranged taking a wacky bump over the top- linger on the toprope and hitting the floor. Deranged goes on offense with jumpy twisty kicks and forearms. Deranged messes up a spring board and comically runs out of the building. Deranged comes back in and does what he does really well- kick his opponent in the stomach to begin his transition to offense. TomK would be impressed. He then works on the leg by dropkicking the knee, kicking the hamstring and procuring the figure four. Deranged is fun- grabbing the ropes for leverage while applying the Figure Four. Archadia reverses the Figure Four and goes on comically fruitily embellished offense. For two! Okay, I love Deranged because he Hotshots To Transition. They do some stuff and Archadia kill him with a hilariously contrived finisher. That was fun junior heavyweight action. Deranged is awesome. Postmatch Fat Frank and Deranged yell indecipherably over the PA.
WHAT DIDN'T WORK-
- Mana the Polynesian Warrior is my sangre and he gives CJ O'Doyle the business early. He does a lot of avalanches with his buttocks. I myself am 1/16th Hawaiian and YET I have NO ASS. I will not be jealous of my junk be-trunked bruthah. But still, is there really a reason for Mana to showboat his ass like this? He does a nice Steiner Squaredriver but this was what we call a squash so it sucked. Johnny D should wear ANYTHING else.
Keep up the links to this stuff! I have found only two others away from the wrestling tv site: NECW and the Memphis stuff on Lawler's site.

I don't know. Tanking an existing angle to short-sightedly take care of another issue on the show is one of RAW's trademark decision-making policies. Watching Owens and Cesaro flop around without anything of meaning (y'know, like the US title)
