Really loved how the rundown got started, felt like they were just getting into the flow of things when they got cut off by Eugene, so I’d have to say that the timing on that seg was pretty perfect, interrupting things the way it did.
The Dewey segment was amazing, between the fan reaction and the fact that I could actually picture it in my head while I was reading it. I found myself still wanting to cheer Eugene a little even after what he’d done, despite how much everyone was booing him. I love the moment when he runs down the previous world champions and raises the FIST title in its place, that being the belt HE made valuable and to me, that really made a statement there.
The Keyes segment was a bit of light hearted fun, and I appreciated the continuity carrying over from the earlier show and previous bell clap incident. Its nice watching the personality of the Keyes character develop more and it was a good Segway into what followed.
The church of Malachi segment was a great intro into the match. It’s gonna be fun getting more into this in the upcoming weeks.
A nice Ryan Matthews? Huh? Well, we’ll just have to see where that goes and how long it lasts.
It’s nice seeing STT2 so focused, and clearly fired up.
Loved the way David Nobel got the crowd all fired up with his speech, he addressed so much of what was going on in DEF with the title situation and established right off the bat what kind of champion that he intended to be. He was inviting people to step up and face him which just added to the intensity and the overall vibe the piece gave off. It will be interesting to see who jumps at the chance to face off with him.
Holiday coming out just upped the intensity, and I loved the back and forth between the two setting up for the reveal that there match will be a latter match. They’ve managed to personalize their match at Def Max, which I love because to me that just ups the value of the victory for whoever wins.
Ohhh a match, I’d almost forgotten there were supposed to be those on the show the segs had been so entertaining to read, though maybe we might have been a little seg happy this show, coming off a PPV I think they were all needed.
To our sponsors, my broadcast partner is not advocating LITERALLY BREAKING NECKS in the ring.
Don’t speak for me! I damn well AM advocating that!
I’m pretty sure the average human male body holds 5 liters or 10 pints of blood while the average female body holds 4.5 liters or 9 pints of blood, but ech 8 isn’t too far off I guess. The important thing was that it was a really good back and forth match that I felt showed off the toughness of both guys.
Hmmm the nice slipping a bit from the Matthews facade? Guess we will just have to wait and see what he does next. I like the slow build, makes me curious.
I did like the little backstage confrontation between Nobel and Mushi, that was some good stuff there and continues to further the tension between them, I like how everyone has continued to build off of and respond to things from the PPV, its making for a very interesting read.
Hell yeah! DDK:
Wargod? Meet God-Beast.
This is going to be so fucking brutal.
And it was, that was a sick, awesome, brutal match and I love love loved that vertical suplex on the steps that in effect, ended the match for both guys in different ways, which, was kinda fitting, really.
Really like the Mushi/Holiday segment, Mushi really has a target on his back at this point and the run part is going to be in seeing who gets their hands on him first…or how many of them get their hands on him and try and turn him into a sushi roll.
Awesome heel heat mushi has going now.
I loved reading the Troy/Ty match, very nicely done, action packed and fast paced, the old guy still has it even if the youngsters keep trying to push him to his limits.
Kinda found myself loving the conversation about club soda too lol. Would love to see a flash to a vinette somewhere of a member of the ring crew trying to scrub bloodstains outta the ring with it.
I am soo interested in seeing what Penn does following his loss, with everything he had been building up to lately, I am hoping for a bit more of Penn next card. Would love to see some backstage with him too, see if he’s got anything else to sell. Memoirs or something lol. Curtis Penn cookbooks. Curtis Penn condoms? Too much maybe lol.
I love Bronson Box….that is all
Main event was awesome, didn’t see the ending coming which made it that much sweeter. Great card from top to bottom.
