GCW Homecoming Night One (08.19.2023) (Wrestling Review)


Homecoming Night One

Atlantic City, New Jersey

Aug. 19th, 2023


Tag Team Match
Maki Death Kill (Maki Itoh & Nick Gage) vs. Deathmatch Royalty (Matt Cardona & Steph De Lander)

This was a fun tag team deathmatch. Cardona coming in with the ghostbusters car was awesome. Cardona, Gage and Steph all bled a ton. This was simple but worked great for what it needed to be. 

4 / 5

Singles Match
Alec Price vs. Leon Slater

This was a really good fast paced match. Some good spots just felt like a lackluster finish. 

3.5 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Crazy King & Los Macizos (Ciclope & Miedo Extremo) vs. Thrussy (Allie Katch, Dark Sheik & Effy)

Wasn’t into this at all. The humor and action wasn’t good at all and even under 10 minutes it dragged. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
Tony Deppen vs. Alex Zayne

Fine match overall. Both guys returning to GCW after a while. Lackluster finish and the crowd not being into this much didn’t help. 

2.5 / 5

Double Dog Collar Match
Joey Janela & Sawyer Wreck vs. Charles Mason & Parrow

This had its moments. Joey bled a ton but this isn’t exactly an interesting feud and Mason and Parrow aren’t giving great matches usually. The ending was unique but looked awful as the chains still had a ton of slack to give noticeable. 

3 / 5

Seven Way Scramble Match
Gringo Loco vs. Arez vs. Cole Radrick vs. Jimmy Lloyd vs. Komander vs. Dante Leon vs. Ninja Mack

A 7 man scramble that goes only ten minutes is a lot to ask. This had its spots as expected and Jimmy Llyod winning is random. 

3 / 5

GCW Ultraviolent Title Match
Rina Yamashita (c) vs. Takashi Sasaki

Takashi and Rina both bled a bunch here. A lot of big spots and good deathmatch action and crowd is still super over for Rina. 

3.5 / 5

King Of FREEDOM World Title Death Match
Toru Sugiura (c) vs. John Wayne Murdoch

Tons of glass here with Tofu and JWM bleeding. A quicker deathmatch that kept a fast pace to it. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Nate Webb vs. Masha Slamovich

Nice to see Nate Webb back. This was what you expected, a mediocre brawl match with Masha clearly winning. 

2 / 5

Death Match
Violento Jack vs. Matt Tremont

Tremont knows how to bleed in a deathmatch. This was a good match with some rough looking spots. 

3.5 / 5
