If any of you read my previews for Bar Wrestling, you would have seen my preview for their show As You Wish on November 28th and how excited I was to watch it. Fast forward a few weeks and I finally got a chance to sit down and watch the whole show and I need to tell you, I definitely wasn’t disappointed! All of the matches lived p to my expectations and I loved the variety of matches from tag team, singles and intergender. This show literally had everything so here’s my match by match review of As You Wish and I hope it encourages you to give it a watch!
DoomFly v Worldwide Underground
Winners: Worldwide Underground
Starting the show with DoomFly v Worldwide Underground was a great way to kick this show off. It was clear from the start who the crowd favourites were, i mean DoomFly are SoCal through and through. What was especially big about this match was that it was straight after Eli Everfly’s win on SmackDown Live against the Miz and Shane McMahon (which played into the match). Anyway, the start of the match saw
There was also a similar clash of styles and personalities with Delilah Doom and Taya Valkyrie but Doom’s passion and heart countered Valkyrie’s mean streak and strength. This continued during the match where we saw DoomFly having to use their small size, quick speed and agility to counter Worldwide Underground. The tide turned in DoomFly’s advantage after some taunting went on and Black did a skull crushing finale on Everyfly and Valkyrie drop kicked him in the corner claiming it was for the Miz. All this seemed to do was fire the duo up and event their tag team victory with some high-flying tandem offence including dives, 619’s and submissions. Even though the win went to Worldwide Underground in the end after a hell of a match and even though it seemed predictable, in the last portion of the match, it seemed to be DoomFly with the advantage and it could have gone any way.
LuchaSaurus v Killer Kross
Winner: Killer Kross
After an initial belief that this match was going to be a test of strength and that Killer Kross could be a force to reckon with, the match turned out … not to be a squash match… just very short. It started in exactly the way i thought, two powerhouse wrestlers battling off in a strength war with LuchaSaurus having the advantage with his agility. However, into the match, out are Scarlett Bordeaux tying to distract LuchaSaurus before hitting him over the head with a bucket which led him to tapping out to a Kross submission. I was quite annoyed that it ended like this because it had the ability to be an amazing match -let’s just hope we get a rematch soon with it any interference.
Scorpio Sky and Watts (Wakanda Vice) v PPRay
Winners: Wakanda Vice #WakandaForever
What good match doesn’t start off with a bit of a test of strength by having a muscle and peck off?
What was great about this match was that, even with all the proper wrestling, all the guys knew had to have fun with the crowd and with each other to make the match fun to watch like PPRay trying to match Watt’s strength and some wiener gyrating. Although Watts and Sky won, even with their clash of styles, you cannot praise PPRay’s perfect tag team chemistry enough and I agreed with the commentators who said that, if Bar had tag team titles, Avalon and Rosas would be top picks. I couldn’t have picked a winner, even during the match, and it all seemed to come down to Wakanda Vice taking advantage of the situation and getting that win together (even with their lack of tag team history). However, all 4 guys put on an amazing match and those ‘This is Awesome’ chants were well deserved.
Heather Monroe v Tyler Bateman
Winner: Heather Monroe
There’s nothing I love more than a good inter-gender match and especially one like this because we don’t see many like this anymore, especially a match with this big a clash of styles and personalities. Monroe started the match by
That’s not to say that Heather didn’t take a beating from those chops, those knees
D-Lo Brown & Willie Mack v The RockNES Monsters
Winners: D-Lo Brown & Willie Mack
With this first time pairing of D-Lo Brown and Willie Mack, you could see from the
We even saw Kevin Martenson (RockNES) manage to suplex Mack which, even though he’s the bigger of the two, wouldn’t be an easy thing to do which shows the versatility of both teams to adapt to their opponents. At the end of it all, after some Godfather
Brody King v Brian Cage
Winner: Brian Cage
It was then onto the main event with a clash of the titans between Brody King and Brian Cage – two mountains of men who had the crowd support split throughout in this first-time singles match. You could see that it was a massive clash of styles from the start and it’s crazy to see someone actually tower over Cage in terms of height and it’s crazy to see someone match Cage’s strength hold to hold, even though seeing Cage toss King across the ring like a bag of potato’s is something to behold. Initially I thought Cage had the advantage with his agility but King has had some experience with Lucha Libre and had to bring it out to match those skills of Cage, I mean the top rope should never see men of these size on them. It was one of those matches where I was on the edge of my seat the whole time and I just didn’t know who was actually going to win. In the end, after a brutal match full of chops, kicks and suplexes, I think the experience of Cage and the fact that he’s half heavyweight half cruiserweight that got him the win at the end of an amazing match!
I mean if these match reviews don’t make you want to go and watch some Bar Wrestling, then something is definitely wrong with you. There isn’t even an excuse because there are so many ways to watch Bar from https://barwrestling.pivotshare.com/home to sites like PowerSlamTV! So, if you have a few weeks off for the holidays, why not try something new and watch some good ol’ fashion SoCal wrestling!
