Pro Wrestling Pride - Newton Abbott 25 Jan 2015

Pro Wrestling Pride Show Review -Newton Abbott 25 Jan 2015

You can view the whole show here:

Unusually for me I was not able to make this show in Newton Abbott due to a prior commitment but luckily for me the good people at Pro Wrestling Pride decided to release this show on Youtube , so I have been able to watch the latest matches and goings on.

First off I'm liking the production that Pro Wrestling Pride are using I like promos before every match helps explain to the people watching the characters, the match and helps give depth to the characters and I think that's always important. Also the ring is well lit and that makes for a great recording of this event, the sound quality is great and is shot well giving a good all round view of the matches on offer.

 We Start off with Duncan Bugg making his entrance to the ring then he introduces are referees Martin Longley and Ed Dyer.

We then go backstage and see Joshua Knott with Naomi talking about his match with Eddie Ryan. Joshua cut a good promo correcting Naomi that he is now known as Joshua not Josh, its a small thing but think it makes a world of difference now he is with C2, Joshua is developing.

Joshua Knott with Calum Cain and Tyler Hawke vs Eddie Ryan

Referee rings the bell and we are under way with this one, Josh starts off by going to the ropes a lot  but initially Ryan manages to apply a side headlock and hits Knott with a shoulder tackle which takes Knott out of the ring. Knott takes his time getting back in, once Knott is back in Ryan manages to take advantage and starts working on left arm of Knott and hits a leg drop on the arm of Knott too.

Ryan manages to get back into control but is stopped when Hawke and Cain choke Ryan on the ropes twice from the floor, knot get whips hard into the corner but Hawke manages to stop Ryan momentum again by pulling Ryan around the ring post, once Ryan gets back up and goes for a move from 2nd rope Hawke grabs his leg again and Knott takes Ryan out from the apron and gets a 2 count.

Team C2
Knott then puts Ryan in Abdominal Stretch in 2 separate positions and Ryan manages to get his way out of it and hits a gut wrench suplex for 2 count.

Ryan gets his leg held again by Hawke and Calum Cain comes to the ring and drops Catch Trophy near Knott who picks it up and behind referee back hits Ryan in stomach with it and then rolls up Ryan for the win.

Winner - Josh Knott

Dominator and Robbie Cain cut a promo on how they don't like the name panda cub and how they are going to dominate in the next match.

UK Dominator and Robbie Caine vs Danny Jones and Panda Cub

Match starts and Crowd start chanting Right Said Fred at UK Dominator, Dominator and Caine talking trash to the crowd is so entertaining. UK Dominator is one of my favourite bad guys to watch, he's Scottish. he's arrogant and you cant help but not like him and pairing with Caine who comments had me laughing I thought these two were entertaining.

Panda Cub and Jones won a contract with pro wrestling pride both have potential and both will develop in PWP. This is just my opinion for what its worth  the one worry I have for them is that they remind me of a version of Wrestling Time (Saviour and Tiger)  , I want to come off as there own team and let their own personalities shine through.
Match starts off with Caine attacking Jones from behind and  Caine tags in Dominator and he is putting the kicks to Jones in the corner and gives him a foot choke also, Dominator tags in Caine again who goes for a suplex on Jones but Jones manages to land on his feet and catches the leg of Caine and pulls him up for a powerbomb and near fall.

Following this Dominator and Caine gain back control until Jones is able to roll up Dominator for a 2 count - panda then gets tagged in and hits a double knee in the corner then Panda hits a dive on the outside to all the match participants, following this Dominator and Caine Take Control again cutting off Panda from Jones.

Jones Finally gets the tag in and hits another dropkick on Dominator and hits a top rope dropkick on Caine, However Dominator and Caine hit double team Spike Tombstone for 1-2-3 and the win!

Winners - UK Dominator and Robbie Caine
