Six Way Aerial Assault Match
Ruckus vs. Jason Kincaid vs. Colby Corino vs. Eli Everfly vs. Cole Radrick vs. Dyln McKay

There was an Ariel Assault box above one ring post which was the stipulation to this match but it was only used one. It was just added height for a high flyer spot. This was the typical scramble match Indies do. Everyone got their time to showcase themselves with Eli’s moonsault being the highlight of the match. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Rich Swann vs. Nick Wayne

Nick Wayne is impressive for 16 but his flaws really showed here. So many moves looked soft or like they didn’t connect. This was a solid match with Swann helping carry a lot of it but it just was a little slow so it felt like it dragged at times. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Slim J vs. 2 Cold Scorpio

Still not a fan of 2 Cold back on the Indies and Slim J didn’t do much here to impress me. 2 Cold finisher was cool looking but a bit off. The match just dragged for me though and wasn’t a fan. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
Mike Bailey vs. Marcus Mathers

A decent match with some pacing issues. Marcus had too many spots that almost botched though that Speedball had to try to recover. Both men had some good moves though but the match could have lost a few minutes and used some tightening up. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
PCO vs. Matthew Justice

A fun hardcore match here. Justice is always good in matches like these as is PCO. PCO continues to just do insane spots almost to the point of being dumb. A lot of tables spots and the first 3/4th of the match was just going table spot to table spot. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Jimmy Jacobs vs. Effy

This ended up being a pretty standard hardcore match. Jimmy busting opening Effy with the spike was nice but everything else seemed to just move slowly. They set up a few spots but it almost felt like there was little substance in this match otherwise. 

2 / 5

H2O Danny Havoc Hardcore Title Ultraviolent Ladder Match
Lucky 13 (c) vs. Alex Colon vs. G-Raver

Honestly for liking all 3 guys here I just didn’t care much for this match. It felt like it slugged around too much with everything. G-Ravers girl in the ring happened far too much, too many refs coming in and out to hold everything together, and the spots themselves just weren’t the best for a lot of it. 

2 / 5

Wasteland Death Match
Matt Tremont vs. Jimmy Lloyd

A fun no rope barbed wire deathmatch here between Jimmy and Tremont. Nothing out of the ordinary here but both men put on a good match with back and forth action. Tons of tubes were used and Tremont bleed like a pig from the head for it. 

3.5 / 5
