The one positive about this show was it was in a smaller venue. Who ever books and or sets out the format of this show sucks at the job. Why are they putting over the has been yanks instead of the incredibly talented British Guys ? They make the majority of the British guys look generic and do their best to make sure they don’t out shine the Americans. I was happy to see Riddle he is amazing, probably the only American wrestler who not only put on a great performance but actually seemed like he wanted to be there. Why would you put over the talentless duo of Carlito and Masters instead of the crowd pleasing, hard hitting U.K. Hooligans (the best Tag Team in the U.K.). So far they have drastically under-utilised by having them lose both times they have appeared. I didn’t have a problem with the first three matches in the gauntlet but yet again for the second week running they made two of the best big men in the U.K. look like idiots. Gibson is by far the best performer on this show but along with his team mates they joined the long list of top U.K. talent that have had to put over has been American Wrestlers. While I have been a fan of RVD and Mysterio it is so clear they don’t really want to be there and if they got a better offer they wouldn’t be. One of the only highlights of the show was the performance of RKJ but he was another talented British Wrestler who lost to an international wrestler. Tor Atterhagen made an appearance and destroyed a team called The Pilgrims. I can’t stand Jake Hager, I hated him when he was Jack Swagger and thought he sucked when he was in WWE and he hasn’t improved at all since he left. The Guy sucks at talking and the only thing that is even more boring is when he wrestles.
Five Star Wrestling is not a good representation of British Wrestling and if this is your first taste of British Wrestling then I can suggest multiple companies that are miles better in every way than this farce of a wrestling show.
I never really say that I think I could do a better job however I truly believe I could put together a much better show than these jokers, but then any wrestling fan with half a brain could put together a better show than what we are having to endure.
