AAW

Unstoppable

Chicago, IL

Dec. 30th, 2021

 

 

Six Way Scramble Match
Gringo Loco vs. Jake Something vs. Larry D vs. 1 Called Manders vs. Brayden Lee vs. Dante Leon

A good scramble match. Everything your typical indy scramble holds. A lot of fast spots and everyone gets their moment to pull off a big move. Gringo always does well here but Something and Dante here looked great. Manders fighting Silas down the line though is an angle that does nothing for me . 

3 / 5

Tag Team Match
Christi Jaynes & Ren Jones vs. Skye Blue & Storm Grayson

Skye Blue is super over with the crowd. She’s good too but has moments where things just don’t look like they connect, plus facing a man is still in that heavy suspension of disbelief because of how she delivers and sells at times. It was an okay mixed tag match. Dealt heavily into the angle of man vs woman and using that as a crutch for the match instead of good action. 

2 / 5

Singles Match
Silas Young vs. Juice Robinson

Two guys that I’m just not that fond of. Juice has never really clicked for me and not a fan of Silas much. Some of Silas moves here just either look weak or like they don’t do much. He also just stands around very noticeably before some moves waiting for the set up. The match felt like it went on too long and to have it end with an interference assist from Manders called back to the first match in a feud I couldn’t care less for. 

2 / 5

Singles Match
Fred Yehi vs. Schaff

It started off rather slow with it being a grounded almost submission based match. Most of the match didn’t click for me until the end when it became a ref stoppage due to excessive violence. While that call in itself is dumb it lead to both men fighting after the match and taking out staff and refs with them in their fight to remain dominate after the belt. 

2 / 5

AAW Heritage Title Three Way Match
Hakim Zane (c) vs. Ace Austin (w/Gia Miller) vs. Myron Reed

Ace Austin is just fantastic and so smooth with his moves. Myron as well, he looked great here. A lot of fantastic spots here. The middle of the match started to lose it though when the pace slowed down. Picked back up at the end for a great 3 way back. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Davey Vega (w/John E. Bravo & Mike Hartenbower) vs. Alex Zayne

Felt like Zayne could of been used so much better here. A very mild and boring match to me. Vega was always the lower part when he was a tag guy and just hasn’t transitioned well to a singles wrestler for me. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
Russ Jones (w/Chuck Smooth) vs. Koda Jacobs

Pretty much a squash match. At least the squash was better than the horrible heel promo before it. 

.5 / 5

AAW Tag Team Title Match
Ace Perry & Alexander Hammerstone (c) vs. ACH & Frontman Jah

A solid back and forth back between both teams. No one here that I’m really that big on but they kept the action going at a good pace. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Josh Alexander vs. Ruby Soho

A really good match between Ruby and Josh. Some good back and forth just slightly hard to believe at times. Had some slight issues you could see which didn’t help. It moved along at a fast pace which helped too as Ruby isn’t super well known submission based wrestler. 

3.5 / 5
