Home now from attending PWG's SIXTEEN in Los Angeles.
It was a long day, I went to Chuck E Cheese in the morning for the birthday of my friend Alex's nephew and then me and Alex left for California about 12:30.
We got to PWG a little before 5 and Alex went inside because he works for PWG but since the doors don't open until about 6:45 I watched most of tonight's GCW Light Out show on my phone using my headphones at the bar next to the Globe Theater which is the venue for PWG. I got all the way through the 5 way match won by Alex Zayne (who Teddy Hart put over afterward and rightfully so as Zayne has really impressed me in GCW) and started watching Daisuke Sekimoto/Shane Mercer when I noticed the line moving to get into the Globe Theater. So I will watch the remaining GCW matches later today.
Once inside I got my copies of my Brody King and Bandido cards signed and I got to give them each a stack of copies of their recently released ROH cards. Bandido really liked his card. SIXTEEN was a great show tonight and I really recommend you check it out on DVD or via streaming once it is released by Highspots. But if you want results now, they are posted below:
Trey Miguel defeated Andy Brown.
It was good to see Brown get another chance in PWG.
The Dark Order defeated Best Friends by DQ.
I think this match between two AEW tag teams ended in a DQ upon request by AEW as PWG matches never end in DQs. The last DQ n PWG was a few years ago when AJ Styles was DQd in the second round of BOLA because NJPW did not want Styles to lose by pinfall in the tournament.
Darby Allin defeated MJF.
MJF gave a really good heel promo before this match which marked his PWG debut. He told Darby Allin before the match that he woud defeat him with just a headlock takeover. But it was Allin who actually defeated MJF by a headlock takeover (which had been preceeded by a low blow.)
Rey Horus and Mexablood (Bandido and Flamita) defeated Puma King, Laredo Kid, and Black Taurus
Words can not do justice to how incredible this match was. One of the best matches in PWG history! You should order this show just for this match alone.
Joey Janela defeated Jungle Boy.
When Janela was getting introduced from Ashbury Park, it was ironic since Janela is a key member of GCWs roster and GCW's show tonight was actually in Ashbury Park. Jungle Boy was brought to the ring riding the shoulders of Luchasaurus who was making his first ever PWG appearance.
Brody King defeated David Starr
At one point Brody hit a suicide dive onto Starr that also hit this one dude with a bald head and a moustache holding a beer which got spilled. It turns out that fan was extremely drunk and he apparently was not sure what had happened and he was staggering around his seating area looking confused (I have not seen someone that inebriated at PWG in quite awhile.) I thought it was hilarious but at the same time it distracted me and caused me to lose some of my focus on this match. That fan eventually took a left into one of the back areas of the Globe Theater and nobody saw him again (who knows, he could be passed out there now.)
PWG World Tag Team Champions The Rascalz defeated LAX in a ladder match.
This was a great main event wth some awesome spots I have not seen involving a ladder before. Since LAX are now free agents and rumored to be headed to either the WWE or to AEW, I was not expecting them to win tonight and thus not surprised the Rascalz retained.
At the very end, after all the other fans had left and all the chairs had been stacked, as I was waiting for Alex to be able to leave so we could drive back to Las Vegas, AEW's Tony Khan appeared from the back and talked to PWG ownership.
PWG is my favorite fed to attend live and tonight's 16th Anniversary was my favorite PWG show of 2019. This was PWG show #73 for me and Show #40 of 2019 for me. I think my next show is FSW next Friday and then I am definitely going back to Los Angeles in 2 weeks for GCW.
