Maybe tired? Maybe smaller? Tough to say since I missed the previous 3 shows at Wells Fargo.

 

It was a lot of families, so perhaps the fans who'd traveled to Philly had already left (acknowledging 4 straight nights of shows in the same building is impossible to take in)? I agree that it was a lukewarm crowd.

 

Maybe we're all just resting until we burn the city to the ground on Sunday as the result of (but not contingent upon the outcome of) the Super Bowl.

I saw that Beyond Wrestling was running out of Wrestlefactory on Saturday before Takeover, but the transit situation wasn’t ideal in relation to where I was staying.

Still training? How’s it going if so?

(May)be I am. ;)

 

Absolutely the WF is not the easiest to get to if you're taking public transit. A combo of trains and buses works, and the parking situation is strange. But we love it and it's the perfect size for a small indy to run a show. At least you're not fighting for south philly parking (woof), and it is free to park. Message me if you come up sometime!

 

The Beyond crew were incredible. The idea of a Secret show (and one that sells out) is hard to pull off, but when you have a card where the *opener* is Jonathan Gresham vs Mike Quackenbush, you know it's gonna be good. If you really dig indy wrestling, I'd hunt down this card specifically for EYFBO vs Tracy Williams and Wheeler Yuta. It's a sleeper match that really exceeded my expectations (and I have high opinions of all four of those guys). Orange Cassidy vs Swoggle was delightfully stupid, too. The main event was David Starr vs Matt Riddle, and boy did it deliver.

 

We have some crossover shows with them later this year, and I'm not entirely sure what all that entails - but I'm definitely excited at the prospect of collaborating with them more.

 

I missed most of the show this weekend (and I'm REALLY REALLY REALLY kicking myself for skipping Takeover for reasons I can't get into here), but I did go to Smackdown last night. A lot of fun overall to attend. It seems that Bullet Club (and derivative) shirts are a really easy way to identify the awful wrestling fans in the crowd these days. I did pop for like a 10 year old dude wearing an LIJ shirt though.

Wanted to post back in here to say I really really hope you guys start paying attention to CHIKARA (again?). Sooner than later is great, but definitely later this year.

Gordon Solie above all, but Lance Russell - how wonderful to be someone that *everyone* in the world seemed to remember fondly?

 

In 2017, everyone is a piece of human garbage - google allows people to search, cherry pick, and use one incident to label a person's entire life. Lance was such a class act that he is remembered well by everyone in the most difficult to please society in modern history.

Watching R2 right now. Enjoyed some victors, sad about others.

 

Of those I've never heard of prior to this tourney, suuuuper high on Toni Storm.
