To be fair, NJPW has scouted guys in PWG and brought them solely from their PWG work and even NJPW has referenced PWG a few times before.

Matt Sydal's getting replaced by Brody King Friday. Nice to see a Cali local get a chance to step up. And against Brooks-should be pretty good!

What are the odds of Swann showing up tomorrow.

He's already taken his first booking, at the Big Event in NY on March 10th. So, I guess he could show up somewhere before then. Don't know if he's going to pop up in Reseda again or not. May not be the best look.

He was cleared right? I don't think it would be a bad thing for him to return.

Dropping charges doesn't mean he was cleared.

As much as I like Swann and all, I think its best for him and Elgin to not step foot in PWG at least for a year or 2 plus opens the door for more new talent to come in.

Anyways, on more positive note, Jushin Thunder Liger is gonna be working at an indie here in SoCal a week before Strong Style Evolved, if there is a PWG show a few days before Strong Style Evolved, which Liger is confirmed to be part of with Naito, Okada, Omega, and Tanahashi, then maybe a possible chance to have Liger for the PWG show.

Yeah. He and Brooks killed it. Brody looked great(a couple awkward moments, but that's okay) and was SUPER over. Also in case you care, Brooks looked like he had 5 more years experience since his debut.

If both guys didn't earned permanent roster spots I'd be shocked.

Guess I should post some thoughts. I wasn't expecting much from this show with only six singles matches. This blew away my expectations(with a couple exceptions).

-Brody vs Brooks. Great match. One of the best PWG openers ever. This didn't go to long which was the right call. Brody made a huge impression in his debut, he could use some more experience, but working PWG will help with that. King was SUPER over. To me the story of the match was Brooks. Only one month in the UK and he looks like a world beater. The pace of this match was so much better than his debut weekend. If Adam got a big push based off this match I wouldn't be shocked at all.

-Castle vs Joey. It was there. I don't like Castle and Joey hasn't done much since his debut. I get the feeling this will be better on DVD.

-Banks vs Starr. This was incredible. Fast paced, athletic, stiff as hell. Banks, Starr, and Brooks looked way better on this show than they did on their debut weekends.

-Zack vs Flip Gordon. Good stuff. Never bought Flip as having a chance. With three excellent matches on the show this kinda got lost in the shuffle. Still a very solid match though.

-Keith Lee vs Matt Riddle. One of the best matches in PWG history. This was a lot like Dijak/Lee but instead of big guys doing athletic things, this was big guys beating the shit out of each other. Both guys play far to much to the crowd, that wasn't the case here. This felt like a fight. Had about a dozen near falls. Go out of your way to see this.

-Chuck vs Trent. This was boring and a lot of people didn't care. Hopefully Chuck loses the belt soon.

-If you are asking my star ratings this is how I would have them.

Brooks/King ****
Joey/Castle ***
Banks/Starr ****1/2
Flip/Zack ***1/2
Lee/Riddle ****3/4
Chuck/Trent **
