The Art Of War Games 2
Hoffman Estates, IL
Sept. 3rd, 2022
A fun scramble match but also with its fault. Started off a bit wonky and had a lot of sloppy moments. Some really big spots in the final minutes of it though helped a lot. Felt like some guys sort of went in a lot of this a lot compared to others though.
3 / 5
Some good story telling with Alex working over Blakes arm. The issue is that I just find Blake, especially since his return to the Indies, to be a complete bore to watch. Alex sadly is the same way. The final moments were good until Blake won with a roll up after this all.
1.5 / 5
Great finishing move to end the match. Everyone held their own here and made Oliver not incredibly boring. Wayne is really good but his moves just rarely look like they connect. Some really brutal looking spots here too. Shocked at the ending too which was a nice surprise.
3 / 5
Cardonas promo to this took way too long. A boring squash match mostly. Crowd didn’t care.
.5 / 5
For being a death match this had a super slow start and most of the match was that same way. Once it became a normal deathmatch it was solid and both women are great in them. Both bled a bunch from a gusset spot. Just the pacing sort of killed this.
2.5 / 5
This was just a bloodbath spot filled match. Every team had their time, every team got insane spots and took insane damage, and every team earned the right to call themselves great deathmatch wrestlers. Justice doing a flip off of the railing of the scaffold was just insanity. The falls off of scaffolds, the tubes, the doors, everyone just pouring blood, and people legit rag dolling off the scaffold. This was well worth the 45 minute intermission.
