A sadly sparse crowd of under 1,000 in the Richmond County Bank Ballpark (home of the NY Yankees farm team) watched a decent enough card of pro wrestling. Felt like a better than average poorly attended indy, albeit with some bigger names.
1.Fallah Bahh beat KM in opener.
2.Pat Buck, Anthony Bowens & Dan Maff beat The Heavenly Bodies 3* Entertaining and better than most of the matches on the show with the supposed “bigger TV stars.”
3.Trevor Lee beat Mario Bokara 2 1/4* They tried hard but pretty workmanlike.
4. Taya Valkyrie beat Sienna & Allie. 2*
5.Eli Drake beat Braxton Sutter. Drake charismatic but nothing special here. 2 ½*
6.LAX's Santana & Ortiz beat Sonjay Dutt & Drago. Match of the night Non-stop action- Sonjay puts on a wrestling clinic. 3 ½*
7. Moose, John Hennigan & James Storm beat Lashley, EC3 & Low-Ki. Enjoyable with some good moments and great moves, but is this slapped together 6-man really the best they could do for the main event in the NY market? Low Ki vs. Hennigan singles match would have burned the building down. Not bad for what it was but nothing I’ll remember 5 years from now. 3*
File this one under "I've seen much better and seen much worse..." but you have to question with their excellent talent roster--couldn't they have booked a card that at least FELT more important for a baseball STADIUM?
