GCW “Cage Of Survival 2” (06.04.2023) (Wrestling Review)


Cage Of Survival 2 

Atlantic City, New Jersey

June 4th, 2023


Singles Match
Maki Itoh vs. Janai Kai

Thankfully this was quick as it wasn’t very good. Itoh is over with the crowd but a match like this didn’t help her or Kai much. 

1.5 / 5

Tag Team Match
Matt Cardona & Steph De Lander vs. The Kirks (Brandon Kirk & Kasey Kirk)

This was another match that didn’t deliver at all. Cardona can work over a crowd like no other but this match just wasn’t good at all. 3 out of 4 people here can put on a good match but this wasn’t it. Cardona getting busted open heavy from a tube bundle after the match was great though. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
El Hijo del Vikingo vs. Ninja Mack

This was good but super sloppy in parts. It was good though and both guys hit all the moves they are known for. 

3 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Alec Price, Jack Cartwheel & Jimmy Lloyd vs. East West Express (Jordan Oliver & Nick Wayne) & Mike Bailey

This was a really good match actually. A lot of good spots and nonstop action. Jimmy Llyod, while being a GCW alum and always around, was clearly out of his element here as he was the odd man in this match. 

3.75 / 5

Tag Team Death Match
Soul Meat (Tomoya Hirata & Toru Sugiura) vs. Los Macizos (Ciclope & Miedo Extremo)

A quick deathmatch here with 4 guys over with the crowd. Nothing overly spectacular but the saw blade bit was over with the crowd. 

3 / 5

Death Match
El Desperado vs. Joey Janela

This was a good deathmatch with Desperado and Janela. Desperado took a nasty cut to the face under his mask and both guys bled a ton. A lot of big spots here and post match Desperado called out Moxley. 

3.5 / 5

GCW World Title Cage Of Survival Match
Masha Slamovich (c) vs. Rina Yamashita vs. Blake Christian

Masha and Rina destroyed this match. Both put on a hell of a deathmatch and took some insane hits here. The Cage Of Survival looked like some half assed thing but worked great for the spots they did. Blake Christian running in at the end to cash in and win the belt turned the crowd into a frenzy too. 

4.25 / 5
