Episode Abstract

The present opens with David Starr within the ring already mid grievance, which is a little bit of a change of tempo for Uncharted Territory that likes to start out immediately with the in-ring motion. Luckily, Starr is among the greatest talkers going proper now, and in addition sadly he’s shortly interrupted by Josh Briggs who challenges Starr for later tonight.

Then we go proper into the primary match, as the extreme Bear Nation face off with The Butcher and The Blade, a match on paper that appears like a complete apocalypse based mostly on what these 4 big, suffocating bruisers delivered to previous matches on Uncharted Territory. They usually actually threw out the tag-teaming from the get go and simply went transfer for transfer in a sick recreation of “prime this” that ultimately noticed Bear Nation choosing up one other huge win.

Alex Reynolds got here to the ring subsequent with some tuned-up heel-ism regardless of seeming to be the wronged partly these days within the teased break-up of his Beaver Boys tag group with John Silver. And his opponent is an ideal indie-verse babyface: the common wanting man, work horse, transfer sensible, Jay Freddie.

In what appears to be a sample now for center of the present singles ~10 minute matches on these Uncharted Territory exhibits, the matches are very quick paced with an excellent selection types that slowly heat the viewers up and usually have them rabid for a end within the last minutes. You’ll be able to inform this takes actual endurance and professionalism to harness the eye of a small viewers like this with competitors and never wild character or shock-filled feuds.

We get an “On the Map” phase subsequent to point out the historical past between Chuck O’Neal and Rory Gulak, which is a pleasant addition to the evolving DIY format of those exhibits. O’Neal has carried out a tremendous job of producing natural warmth together with his “Make Past Legit Once more” persona, particularly together with his reliable background as an MMA fighter and BJJ black belt. And dude simply appears hardcore (and the addition of Infantile Gambino’s “Bonfire” as his entrance music is a pleasant contact), particularly contrasted towards the face-slappingly pro-wrestling persona of a caped-out, stomach bulge-ed Gulak.

Having O’Neal make brief work of Gulak was truly an awesome robust as a result of it was irritating with out being low cost, which is a few old-fashioned pro-wrestling storytelling that works even if you’re anticipating it.

Chris Dickinson appears to be quietly on a roll of difficult indie superstars, notably of the hard-hitting variety like Eddie Kingston. In order he barrels his means in the direction of that extremely anticipated hand-picked match with Daisuke Sekimoto at Americanrana later this summer time, the metaphor we’re seeing is the Dickinson, win or lose, is in his prime and must be acknowledged as the most effective wrestlers on the planet, as the best way super-indies like ROH would have executed with their champions within the mid 2000s. Whether or not or not it will finally arrange Dickinson because the Samoa Joe or Bryan Danielson that he in all probability deserves to be, stays to be seen, however grueling matches like this one towards Kingston are a lot appreciated.

The Past Discovery Gauntlet switches issues up this week by bringing in a challenger who has had considerably of a much bigger profile than even present holder Thomas Santell may need as a member of the HeartThrobs, and that’s former CHIKARA Grand Champion Juan Francesco de Coranado. Santell, to his credit score, has shortly gained over the gang at Electrical Haze with is Eugene-meets-Backlund fashion, and Past discovered a tremendous foil for him within the Regal-esque expression work of Coronado. The ring work would have made Lord Steven proud too, as these guys are extensions of his giddy catch-as-catch-can fashion and goofy grimaces.

One of many different Uncharted Territory regulars, Solo Darling, had one other profile match subsequent towards match to work her magic towards Shazza McKenzie, who undoubtedly had one of many highlights of the night time together with her middle-rope Stunner into the splits.

I do know I’m not the one one was was hungry for some extra Brandon Thurston following his present stealing debut towards Jay Freddie a number of weeks in the past, and matching him up with considered one of my all-time indie favourites, John Silver, was an impressed name by Past. Each males have comparable frames, information and endurance with the x-factor being Silver’s legendary pound-for-pound energy, a puzzle for the Thurston’s mind to attempt to clear up.

You wanna know what’s sort of low-key cool about this match: each guys are sporting tights with their final names written throughout the again. Once I was rising up, adorning your tights was top-of-the-line methods you possibly can actually categorical your self and get your identify into the viewers’s head, and it’s simply that type of old fashioned contact that makes me love this present.

After the match, Silver’s common tag group associate, Alex Reynolds, got here out to debate their current points, calling on their long-time friendship (together with the all the time potent declare of Silver being in Reynolds’ wedding ceremony social gathering), and so we get the announcement that a reunited Beaver Boys will tackle Bear Nation subsequent week (this isn’t going to go nicely).

Nevertheless, the actual headline for me subsequent week is the return from the lifeless of Erick Stevens to tackle Chris Dickinson. Main query marks about the place this man has been, what sort of situation he’s in, and if he can stand in there with a man like Dickinson in 2019 like he would have beloved to again in 2009.

For the primary occasion, throughout David Starr’s Steve Corino-esque introductions, Briggs huge boots an interruption and issues are off to a brutal begin.

After a chokeslam right into a powerbomb combo, Briggs freezes and refuses to go for the pin, as an alternative planning to get some revenge on Starr for costing him a profitable streak weeks in the past, and making an attempt to get some weapons or exposing the turnbuckle, a mistake that permit Starr get his power again, hit Briggs with a chair whereas the ref had his again turned, and get the pinfall with a straitjacket German suplex.

Transfer of the Night time
After having labored Silver’s arm a bit of their match, Thurston tries for some type of again splash, solely to get caught in a feat of power by the his nonetheless mighty opponent for one-armed half nelson suplex.

Shock of the Night time
Richard Holliday, who final appeared as a member of MJF’s frat-boi Dynasty faction a couple of weeks in the past, acquired within the commentary sales space this week and for nearly 2 half hours was only a unbelievable heel color commentator. Does this dude have a Communications diploma or one thing? Right here’s to hoping they maintain him round.

Episode MVP
David Starr
You won’t need to like him as a result of he’s so rattling brash and regularly backs it up, however the man opened the present and closed it together with his A-level mic work, and wrestled a hell of a match towards Josh Briggs, and regardless of not being an precise mainstream “star” he exudes a degree of superstardom that elevates this present in ways in which may remind of you of Brian Pillman in ECW.

Greatest Match
Thomas Santell vs. Juan Francisco de Coronado
In three weeks, Santell has turn into an enormous spotlight on this collection, and this match with Coronado was not only a “Discovery” for 2 guys with main credentials, however the cleanest and most difficult match on a really strong card filled with Past regulars. Coronado must be again no matter dropping this one, and as for Santell, how lengthy till we see him matched up with Past’s gold-star over-the-top weirdo: Orange Cassidy?

How Did It All Finish?
After his victory, Starr continued the speech he was making an attempt to offer at the start of the present announce who he deliberate to wrestle at Americanrana. And that morphed into a really passionate dissection of his long-time rival Joey Janela, who Starr lambasts for promoting out to the primary firm that put a contract to him (AEW), and due to that he would battle NO ONE at Americanrana. As riveting because the promo was, in fact, this should imply he IS dealing with Janela in what could possibly be his farewell match to Past in what could be the rumoured Ironman match we should always have gotten on New Yr’s Eve? I’m intrigued.
