Favorite promo: Brock Edwards... just there were a few good ones
Biggest Surprise: Apart from Israel winning the endurance title shot as I was so sure that Adonis would win, Ryder laying down for Brock Edwards
Which match do you think could have been better written: I could not answer mate as I would have done a lousy job so im in awe of all the matches written
What would you rate the show on a grade of A to F: A-
Best booking: The World Heavyweight Match
Worst booking: For pure booking, Brock v Oscar turning into Brock v Ryder mind you ryder was so clever in the forums claiming not to have a match etc etc was well played out so just for pure bookng purposes the triple threat tag team match, with all the triple threats and stipulation matches and four way and six way matches I feel that this could have been a straight out 2 v 2 one fall match, possibly with the champions having to defend that night. apart from that mate brilliant and I hate critiquing this one because it was so great of a PPV
Hawk: You may know me from a few other places but I am a completely different man here. I'm here to take what I want when I want and destroy anyone that gets in my way. I don't care what I have to do, but I am going to get to the top no matter how many people have to suffer. So many of you were expecting VHX or someone else, but what you got is so much better. You got the man who shut Shaz up. I am the eternal Phoenix, the hellbound warrior, "Mr. Mayhem" Mike Hawk and I am IWA's greatest acquisition.
Favorite match- The Endurance Championship match
Favorite promo- KJ Punk
Biggest Surprise- KJ winning the damn World Championship! Fuckin' quality.
Which match do you think could have been better written- The Tag Titles match.
What would you rate the show on a grade of A to F- C+
Best booking- Damaged Goods
Worst booking- Brock fingerpoke of death.
As for comments:
KJ my man, congratulations! Fully deserved.
Bear, thanks for the opportunity with Kyo and I'm looking forward to seeing the feud with Smyth continue.
Des! Damaged Goods Tag Champions bitchhhh! Well done bro.
As for the debuts, all of them were fuckin' awesome- but Black Blooded were my favourite- purely because they're amazing. Great to see you back Asher.
Alrighty just read the show and lets start off by saying that IWA has started on a high note! Very good show, enjoyed reading it from top to bottom.
First Blood Match
I want to say Shining Light but I expected a big interference in the Battle Royal. So i'm going with Mike Hawk as I don't think anyone picked him as Shaz's opponent.
Which match do you think could have been better written
In all honesty no matches were poorly written. The Brock/Ryder fiasco did what it was supposed to, so I can't poke holes in it.
What would you rate the show on a grade of A to F
A solid B, good but not great. Still, for the first PPV in IWA that's good.
Kyojin wins the Endurance Title.
Adonis not winning.. Naaah of course not! Worst booking for me was Oscar Layman being taken out, i was really looking forward to that match.
I think that's a fair assessment anyway, IWA has a lot of potential considering this was only its first PPV show, hopefully you guys are gonna keep up with the quality writing.
Side note, congrats to Cricket on the win in the Battle Royal, with the promo we cut on Chaos it had to be one of us brother. Thanks to everyone who predicted an Adonis win btw, the people wanted it but as the Stones sang, you don't always get what you want ;)
Favorite match: Bias would have to be Damaged Goods/HH/NCII, but I must say it was the World Championship
Favorite promo: KJ PUNK narrowly defeating Shaz
Biggest Surprise: Black Blooded, Shining Light and Mike Hawk. I can't decide which
Which match do you think could have been better written: Ryder/Edwards served it's purpose, so I'll say Tag Titles.
What would you rate the show on a grade of A to F: Booking Wise: B-, Match Quality: A solid C
Best booking: Between Kyojin/Smyth and Punk winning the title
Worst booking: Layman being taken out. I would have rather seen Ryder interfere to give Brock the victory as opposed to the Fingerpoke of Doom
Thanks to you three for feeling I deserve to be the inaugural IWA Tag Team Champions. I won't let you down! :D
Shining: Hope you all enjoyed my little appearance at Thirst for Blood... Rest assured that IWA will never be the same again.
