Wrestlecon “Mark Hitchcock Memorial Supershow” 2023 (Wrestling Review)

Wrestlecon Supershow

Los Angeles, California

March 30th, 2023

 

Singles Match
Michael Oku (w/Amira) vs. Blake Christian

A good opener here. Oku looked good and Blake can work and is a big heel in the Indies currently. Some good moves but could have been shortened just a bit. 

3 / 5

Tag Team Match (Special Enforcer: Ken Shamrock)
Christopher Daniels & Tom Lawlor vs. Bryan Keith & KENTA

A random mix of teams here. It had its moments and the Shamrock bit was cool to see. It just didn’t always work well and dragged on for far too long. 

2.75 / 5

Singles Match
Ultimo Dragon vs. Negro Casas

A solid match that was more for the story behind it. Neither guy had fought in over a decade and given their age this wasn’t going to be some fast spot match. It was fine for it was though and didn’t over stay its welcome really. 

2.75 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Arez, Laredo Kid & Latigo vs. Aramis, Galeno Del Mal & Rey Horus

A great fast paced lucha spot match. Everyone here looked great and Galeno shined here showing off his agility and moves in lucha given his size. 

3.5 / 5

Ten Woman Tag Team Match
Hyper Misao, Mizuki, Shoko Nakajima, Yuki Aino & Yuki Kamifuku vs. Free WiFi (Hikari Noa & Nao Kakuta), Miu Watanabe, Raku & Rika Tatsumi

A hard match here. Not a Joshi fan at all really and neither was this crowd. Having a 10 woman tag match where the crowd doesn’t really know them and commentary has to explain everything made a generic match fall short. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
Shigehiro Irie vs. Mike Bailey

A very solid match here. Bailey is great but his weekend is so packed here this doesn’t feel too special. Irie had his US moment then it fizzled and I sadly feel like it hasn’t returned. 

3 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
United Empire (Jeff Cobb, Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis) vs. Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin & KUSHIDA)

A really solid trios match here. Good spots and United Empire here worked really well for me. Kushida as well is always a joy to see and Sabin / Shelley are both vets here. 

3.5 / 5

AAA Mega Title Triple Threat Match
El Hijo del Vikingo (c) vs. Black Taurus vs. Komander

A total lucha spot fest yet so unique. Vikingo and Komander are two of the best here and Taurus is so great especially for a bigger lucha guy. 

4.25 / 5
