XPW – Merry Christmas (12.10.2022) (Wrestling Review)


Merry Christmas

Pomona, California

Dec. 10th, 2022


Three Way Death Match
Bo Cooper vs. Terex vs. Judge Joe Dred

A fun bloody opening match. Once it got going the pacing fixed itself some. Fun spots and the tacks bump was good. It just goes lost so much though based on the insanely anticlimactic finish. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Juventud Guerrera vs. Willie Mack

 This match really wasn’t good and it should have been great. The flow and pacing was super off here then add in a horrendous finish again and it killed the match. 

1 / 5

Three Way Match
Psychosis vs. Damien 666 vs. Vinnie Massaro

A bit of a sluggish slow match. 2 out of the 3 guys are out of shape and all 3 are older anyway. They messed up a spot and counted 3 and kept going since Psychosis couldn’t get into the ring in time. Another match that just wasn’t good. 

1 / 5

Singles Match
Matt Cross vs. Bestia 666

A more traditional match that just never became exciting. Both are solid guys and Cross can be really good and feels like a dude whose career just never became what it should be. This just never picked up the pace to be anything special. 

2 / 5

XPW FITE TV Title Match
Kat Martini (w/Ludark Shaitan) (c) vs. Biggie Biggs

Groin kick squash. 

.25 / 5

Death Match
Necro Butcher vs. Hardbody

A very mediocre hardcore / deathmatch. Necros MAGA character is horrible and not even in a good way. This had some good spots but just wasn’t a great match really. 

2.5 / 5

XPW King Of The Death Matches Title Match
SHLAK (c) vs. Ciclope

A fun glass filled deathmatch between two great deathmatch guys. Not the best deathmatch but Shlak bled a ton. Tubes didn’t always break but they made the best of it. This was just a fun filled match though and it kept the pace well. 

3.5 / 5

XPW Women’s Title Three Way Elimination Match
Taya Valkyrie (c) vs. Ludark Shaitan vs. Lindsay Snow

Some parts of this worked really well. The deathmatch aspects were great and Lindsay Snow looks great and bled a ton. Taya is a great wrester but here I felt she didn’t work well. She isn’t a deathmatch type wrestler and didn’t blend well with the deathmatch parts here. Ludark is cool though and should be a good champ. 

3 / 5

XPW World Heavyweight Title Death Match
MASADA (c) vs. Drake Younger

Vampiro couldn’t do the match so Drake Younger stepped in. Personal views aside this felt tame for a Younger match but given its Masada who doesn’t go all out anymore it was expected. This had its moments but the pacing was off and it just felt slow a lot of the time. 

2 / 5
