Match #1: Rocky Romero def. Gino Marina

The following is courtesy of MLW.com:

The 17-year veteran of MLW is back in action at MLW, but Medina is pacing with eagerness to get his hands on him. It shows as he starts with a standing switch. Romero counters free and Gino briefly seeks the ropes. The two continue to exchange holds with one another and it’s Gino who shoulder tackles him down. Medina keeps a nonchalant demeanor in his rhythm and Rocky rolls him in an arm submission. Rocky turns that left arm into a major focus and even goes up top to drive the knee into it! Romero remains in the mindset of keeping Gino grounded, but the two do trade shots mid-ring. And that gets harsh. A 540 kick is a patented move we see from Medina and he sure pulls that out of his toolbox against the cagey vet. Gino downs Rocky hard with some shots and corners him for some attacks and then a spinal tap for two. Gino now is the man in control. The two competitors go toe to toe with shots, but it’s Gino yet again maintaining a hold control until the two once more duke it out again! That’s until Romero pokes Gino in the eye and sends him to the outside. Romero however, sends him back to the canvas and delivers some kicks to the chest. That’s followed up by dropkick to the skull! 1-2-no! Rocky looks to go for a potential sliced bread but a big European uppercuts staggers him. Romero fights back with three clotheslines, but a sidekick from Medina downs him for two! Gino quickly continues his offense with a short-arm clothesline for another near fall! Medina goes for a tilt-a-whirl, but a kick from Romero frees him from any type of offense. Rocky once more goes for another tornado DDT. Gino fights him off, but Rocky remains focused and hits it, following it up with a major armbar and it causes Gino to submit!

The Score: 7 out of 10

Match #2: King Mo def. Robert Martyr

The following is courtesy of MLW.com:

Mo quickly downs Robert and he looks to pound away at the youngster. Martyr goes for a triangle hold, but Mo powerbombs him down hard! Mo maintains that strength by tossing Martyr and Mo cinches in a headhold that causes the official to stop the bout!

The Score: 1 out of 10

Match #3: (Main Event) Bu Ku Dao def. TJP

The following is courtesy of MLW.com:

Bell sounds and the two former friends size one another up. Dao goes for some left handed strikes, but TJP evades. HE trips up Dao. The two men ground one another. Dao rolls a headlock through for a snapmare, but the speed of both fighters allows for some movement. TJP escapes and puts Dao in a surfboard stretch. Dao does an athletic arm drag, but that’s until TJP trips him up on the apron! TJP throws him back into the ring and a strike downs Dao. Cover, but only a one count. TJP springboard sentons Dao for a near fall. Perkins hoists Dao up for a powerbomb, but Bu Ku rolls through only to get lariat-ed by his former mentor. TJP twists his foot on the face of Dao and then isolates that right arm. He continues to punish the back of Dao. TJP stomps away at Dao in the corner and then nails a backbreaker for a two count. TJP then locks Dao in a standing anchor hold. TJP turns it into several pin attempts. Big kick by TJP and then he nails a European uppercut. Dao, however, ascends up to and hits a crossbody for a two count! TJP is caught off guard. It doesn’t phase him too much as he nails a powerbomb for such a close fall! TJP controts Dao with and impressive stretch before dropping him down for a two count! Dao continues to fight, but TJP maintains management of the canvas. A kick does free Dao and he topes on top of TJP! This could be the window for Dao as he sends TJP back in the ring for a series off attacks that is punctuated by a running bulldog. Dao, however, is unable to capitalize with a pin! The two men get to their feet and Dao continues a flurry of strikes and attacks. TJP catches Dao mid-air with a dropkick. TJP then drops him in a modified facebuster! 1-2-no! TJP climbs up top and Dao makes him pay by throwing him down to the canvas. Dao ascends but is superplexed off and then gets locked in an octopus stretch. Dao is in a bad spot, but somehow he makes it to the ropes. Big right hand and strikes by TJP, but Dao fires back. TJP goes for an airplane spin. That knocks the official down hard before Dao crucifix pins him for a more than three count! The pin can’t be administered, but that still doesn’t stop Dao who flies across with ring with a spinning flatliner for the 1-2-3!

The Score: 7 out of 10

Final Verdict: 6/10

The first and last match were very good matches, especially the opener. Mo squeezed the life out of his opponent for a squash. Natasha Beddingfield pissed me off. There was a lot of talking here, including discussions of MLW on VICE and Azteca Underground. Ummmmm…the wrestling was good, but it ran a bit short two thirds of the time. At least this show has wrestling. NWA Power had jack s–t! God damn it! F–king Billy Corgan! I’ll smash his f–king pumpkin! Watch the first and last match. The first match was really good. Rocky Romero needs to get a major title shot somewhere. Listen. This show needed more wrestling on it, but what we did get was better than what has appeared on this show as of late, so I’m happy…I think. Alex Hammerstone challenged Jacob Fatu to decide who is the primary champion of Major League Wrestling. That oughta be good. Well, I can’t think of anything else to write. Let’s party down y’all! This review is over! I want cheese-steak sandwiches! Cheese…steak…cheese-steak sandwiches! Go get ’em! Okay. That’s that. I’ll see you next week.
