As a change from the usual Streets Ahead format, we’ll be discussing multiple shows, DVDs and overall cool things in the wrestling world.
This week, we’ll look at five great things that you should definitely check out!
1. The Kevin Steen Show: The Tag Team Edition
Most of you are probably already aware of this or have even watched it, The Kevin Steen Show was too good to not mention here. This option is a good deal with two shoot interviews for the usual $20 DVD pricing. Past editions of The Kevin Steen Show with Adam Cole and Michael Elgin were fun but the one with The Young Bucks is clearly the best.
From Scott Hall’s reaction of Nick Jackson doing a Swanton Bomb to the full story about Booker T hating the Bucks, they are very open about everything in their careers. Nick Jackson is VERY candid when asked about the Bucks 2011-2012 run in ROH. I would rank this among my favorite all time shoot interviews with Paul London and Brian Kendrick’s, CM Punk and Samoa Joe’s and a few other classics.
The Super Smash Bros episode is also entertaining. Homeless dads, lamp shades and references to Gabe Sapolsky are always fun. On par with the Cole and Elgin shoots, a great bonus to have with the Young Bucks shoot.
Here’s a short video we shot of Kendrick talking about those darn reptilians.
One of the best Ring of Honor cards in recent memory, I can’t wait to see this show when it becomes available onDemand. It’s a shame ROH couldn’t figure out how to solve their iPPV problems because this could very well have been among their most viewed events.
Stacked from top to bottom with incredible and eclectic outside talent, I’m expecting a show of the year candidate.
Forever Hooligans vs. The American Wolves:
Should be fantastic. Davey Richards and Rocky Romero in No Remorse Corps were one of my favorite ROH tag teams so it will be cool seeing these two interact. Two of the best tag teams in the world facing off can’t not produce good results.
With the reDRagon rematch already booked for NYC and the Wolves lack of ROH contract security, I can’t see another tag title change happening this weekend.
Interest Level: 7/10
Prediction: Forever Hooligans win.
Kevin Steen vs. Brian Kendrick:
Like I mentioned in my ROH Title Tournament preview, I’m very fond of Brian Kendrick’s recent work so I have high expectations for this match. With the lack of matches announced for the NYC show in just two weeks, I’m hoping great performances from guys like Kendrick, Paul London, Kushida and the Young Bucks will lead to announcements of them all being booked for Manhattan Mayhem. I can only dream. This match should all sorts of wonderful, especially in front of that Canadian crowd.
Interest Level: 9/10
Prediction: Kevin Steen wins. Continue reading
