Just got home from Night 2 of this 4 day wrestling weekend.
I thought tonight's 17th Anniversray PPV was awesome. I was really glad to see Villain Enterprise win the ROH World Tag Team Championship and Lethal vs Taven was so much better than I expected. I am really hoping to see Marty Scurll win the ROH World Championship at the MSG show.
Tonight I got my new Marty Scurll, Shane Taylor, and Bobby Cruise cards autographed and after the show made a signing to the game.
I left Sam's Town a little after 11 and went downtown to The Nerd bar and saw a show that was much better than I expected. Only 3 matches, but admission included an open bar. Only Willie Mack and Human Tornado were annnounced ahead of time but this show also included wrestlers such as Teddy Hart, Tom Lawler, Marty "THe Moth," and Nick Gage. In the crowd watching the matches included wrestlers such as Silas Young, Chris Bey, and Suede Thompson. The ring was set up in the backroom of The Nerd and it sort of seemed like watching wrestling in a basement. But the show was alot of fun and I had a couple of free beers while I was there. It turns out Teddy Hart is helpig run this new fed in Las Vegas and there will be another show at The Nerd in May during Double or Nothing weekend. Very glad I went even though it led to another very late night.
Today's shows were #s 16 and 17 for 2019 for me. I am hoping to sleep for at least 8 hours now before going back to Sam's Town for the ROH TV tapings.
Vegas.. you almost had a couple wrestlers at least two tables and a ladder in your lap!! You had GOOD seats.
It really was a good show. I usually enjoy RoH's shows and that was as expected. That Taven/Lethal match was an good old school pro-wrestling story. Cant wait for the, what will have to be, triple threat match at MSG.
I went to the ROH TV tapings last night. Before the show, I got my copies of my Beer City Bruiser, Brian Milonas, TK O'Ryan, and Vinny Marseglia cards autographed. But when I told Matt Taven I thought his match the previous night against Jay Lethal was awesome he responded that since I was wearing a Villain Enterprises shirt he was only OK with my comment. And then when I got my photo taken with the Kingdom, they covered up the words Villain Enterprises on my shirt with one of the ROH World 6 Man Tag Team Championship belts.
Also, before the show, I made an awesome signing to the game. I would be shocked if this name is not in the next ROH set.
I don't want to spoil the tapings results, but my favorite matches were Jeff Cobb and Willie Mack vs Briscoes for a spot in the Crockett Cup, Bandido vs PJ Black, and Villain Enterprises vs the Kingdom for the ROH World 6 Man Tag Team Championship.
After the show, I went with Will to eat and drink a beer at TGIF's inside Sam's Town. They sat us on the outer portion of the restaurant adjacent to the main casino walkway with no wall between the casino walkway and the restaurant and I saw Mark Haskins and Jonathan Gresham walking by. I called Mark Haskins over and gave him copies of his card that Filsinger Games sent me to give to him and I also got him to sign my copy of his card.
After eating, before driving home, I stopped by Sam's Town security to ask by chance if they had my debit card I lost somewhere last night. Thankfully it was turned in and I got my card back and my bank said there had been no fraudulent purchases made on it.
This was Show #18 of 2019 for me. Show #19 for me will be FSW's Mecca show tomorrow at Sam's Town.
