So Frank Mir's "wrestling" debut was a 2 minute submission victory over Dan Severn. Mir looked way out of shape but still looked like he can kill most wrestlers.

It wasn't a classic but very solid little match. Tanaka can really fuckin' go for a dude with as many miles on the odometer as he has. Weirdly the match kind of seemed an afterthought and kind of backdrop for Joey Janela's return to Beyond.

More Than Mania 2019 thread cross post but maybe not really since this show was 3 and 1/2 hours away.

I went to the first episode of Beyond Wrestling "Unchartered Territory" last night in beautiful Downtown Worcester, MA.  It is a fantastic concept (2 hour weekly TV style show but indies) but maybe a year or two later. Last night was awesome cause they could pull out all the stops being relatively close to WrestleMania but wondering where they will be 8 or 9 weeks down the line.

Big standout, showcase match of the night was Beaver Boys Vs Aussie Open. Aussie Open will be with WWE very shortly. Just big talented, charismatic, and confident dudes from a relatively untapped market WWE is trying to play into.

Beyond seems very intuitive of what indy talent to emphasize, IE what talent is least likely to get snapped up ASAP by WWE. Show was built around Chris Dickinson (too bald and hairy and also swears too much)  and David Starr's (too stubborn and woke for WWE) feud.

It'll be hard to top the mixed tag between Jordynne Grace and Brian Cage Vs Orange Cassidy and Session Moth Martina has to be early favorite for Match of the Weekend.

I watched that show on IW.tv and it was a lot of fun. That mixed tag match was brilliant. Orange and Martina are perfect together.

In news only Kamala and might be interested in, our buddy Anthony Greene won his match at Evolve yesterday. It was a scramble match with the winner getting an Evolve contract. So happy for AG.

And here I was thinking Cam Zagami was going to be the breakout of the Cam-An Connection.

I like Cam a lot too. He's natural heatseeker and great weaselly heel but I think he may have some injury issues? He's gonna be the host/backstage interviewer for Beyond's weekly television series

Anthony Greene is someone I think will eventually get into the bigs through his sheer passion and hard work. It's been really a pleasure the last 3 or 4 years watching him evolve (er, no pun intended. Seriously) through a bunch of trial and error (his fratboy gimmick...not so good, Al) and become the wrestler that he is today

All I know of modern Anthony Greene is that he did a slide over Bobby Orlando's back through the ropes and into the adoring arms of his valets at CZW Twenty and it was awesome.

He did an amazing spot at an Evolve show in Queens a few weeks back. He went to the top rope, walked out onto the rope, grabbed a balloon that was there, did a flying cross body, rolled out of the ring and handed the balloon to a guy in the front row. It was amazing.

Seamless spots like that are so fun. Simon Diamond nailing a shout-out gourdbuster as he did his "thinking man" pose immediately comes to mind, too.

Watching Episode 2 of Beyond Wrestling Unchartered Territory on YouTube. Gangrel just took a pretty nasty clothesline bump on the hardwood floor. What if he is this year's PCO? What a world.

It sounds like he will be doing more matches in Beyond. I will flip the fuck out if we get Orange Cassidy Vs Gangrel

Catching up on the Mania weekend shows I missed. I watched Spring Break 3 Part 1 the other day and it was great. I'm watching Part 2 now, and the Clusterfuck is amazing.

come to think of it since you mention Spring Break. Forget Gangrel. I want Ricky & Robert to be this year's PCO.

Someone on Twitter neatly pointed out that Chris Daniels is only 10 years younger than Robert Gibson and 13 years younger than Ricky Morton. So for all of the talk of "Generations Colliding", there's less of an age discrepancy between SCU and the RNR Express than there has been between SCU and some of their recent ROH opponents!

I know you're joking but ICP as commentators has produced very entertaining results.

Watched the third episode of Beyond Wrestling Unchartered Territory the other night. By far, it was their best produced effort. Really love that it manages to effectively put 2019 independent wrestling in an old school studio wrestling format.

Chuckie T Vs Wheeler Yuta was a fun opener. It was really cool to see Chuckie play an ruthless rat bastard heel since I'm so used to seeing him be a babyface and/or do comedy stuff last few years.

Josh Briggs on color commentary sounds a lot different than you'd expect him to sound. PBP is v. good by indy show standards, I think.

So far, they are managing to do a good job of balancing building long term storylines (MJF's Dynasty battling Chris Dickinson & Joey Janela, Kris Stadtlander Vs Kimber Lee) and the special guest appearances. I'm concerned if the MJF and Janela feud will be able to hindered by them being AEW guys (despite Janela repeatedly saying being in AEW won't effect his indies schedule)

And I love everything about it. It's great to see fans take to him as they see how much fun he's having. He had a match against Jungle Boy recently that they dedicated to Luke Perry. David is Jack's (Jungle Boy) Godfather.

We might have a contender for Rando Comeback of 2019. Antonio from forgettable '00s WWE tag team The Heart Throbs is now Thomas Santell, doing a George McFly gimmick. And it rocks.

Quite the career trajectory. He was a Ken Shamrock ripoff MMA gimmick back when I was going to indie shows in the early '00s then to the '00s version of the American Males to channeling Crispin FN Glover.

Weird, he was always doing generic heel schtick whenever I saw him. He was solid enough, so why not?

Speaking of Joey Ryan. He announced that at Bar Wrestling on May 30, he's going to make an announcement about his future. I'm guessing since it's at Bar Wrestling, and that's where BTE shows up to announce their signings, that he might be headed to AEW.
