IWA-MS presents Simply The Best V
From: Highland, IN
Opening Contest: Michael Shane vs. Austin Aries: Shane wants to shake hands before the match starts and then flips Aries off instead. Aries dropkicks a seated Shane after getting out of a head scissors. They trade some mat wrestling holds on the mat with Shane taking Aries to the mat again with a fireman’s carry and they have a standoff. They’ve kept the match quite basic for the first several minutes. Aries takes Shane down with a few arm drags and a running knee sends Shane through the ropes to the floor. Aries drives Shane down with a gut buster and an STO for a two count. Shane low blows Aries and drops Aries over the top rope gut first. Shane continues with a few short arm clotheslines to knock Aries to the mat and hits a flapjack. Shane tosses Aries with an overhead belly to belly suplex, but Aries lands on his head. That was rather dangerous looking. Shane slams Aries to the mat before going to the top rope. Shane misses a top rope leg drop attempt as Aries rolled out of the way. Aries forearms Shane several times and delivers a roaring elbow for a two count. Shane plants Aries with a Flatliner for a two count. Aries blocks a superkick and almost wins with a rollup. Aries plants Shane with a rolling fireman’s carry and hits a top rope 450 splash for the win. (**3/4. A solid opening match and Aries seems to be really over with the IWA-MS crowd. Yes, there’s actually a good crowd this time around for the show. Some good action and a clean finish. Can’t go wrong with that.)
Second Contest: Allison Danger & MsChif vs. Mickie Knuckles & Daizee Haze: All four women are in the ring fighting with Knuckles and Haze hitting clotheslines early on. MsChif is nearly pinned after a double elbow drop by Knuckles and Haze. Haze and MsChif are the legal women with Haze controlling MsChif with a dragon sleeper for a moment. MsChif strikes Danger for a tag teasing some tension between them. Knuckles forearms Danger followed by a knee lift. Knuckles almost wins following a snap suplex. MsChif nails Knuckles with a kick to the face. Danger and MsChif are arguing despite having the advantage. MsChif puts a camel clutch on Knuckles under the middle rope.

Danger plants Knuckles with a reverse DDT, but the referee didn’t see the tag. Danger decks MsChif off the apron and Knuckles has Danger on her shoulders. Haze hits a crossbody for the three count. (**1/2. There were a couple of dangerous spots, but that was mostly because they had some issues with timing. I enjoyed the action as it was hard hitting and the spots they used were entertaining.) After the match, Danger attacks MsChif. Haze and Knuckles pull Danger off to help MsChif. MsChif spits green mist into Knuckles face and Haze bails to the floor.
Third Contest: Colt Cabana vs. Danny Daniels: Early on, Daniels tries to shoulder block Cabana but fails. Cabana trips Daniels and uses Danny as a surfboard. Cabana has Daniels on his shoulders, but Daniels gets a rollup for a two count.

Cabana regains control with a side Russian leg sweep and gets a modified submission with Daniels laying on Colt’s back. Cabana dropkicks Daniels right on the face while Danny was kneeling. Colt strikes Danny several times and they fight on the middle rope. Daniels leaps off the ropes to hit a head scissors. Danny hits a missile dropkick to send Cabana to the floor. Fannin chokes Cabana on the floor while the referee was distracted. Daniels misses a chop and hits the ring post instead. Cabana gets the Billy Goat’s Curse on Daniels but lets go quickly and almost wins with a rollup. Daniels tries for a submission but Cabana reaches the ropes. Daniels comes off the ropes to nail Cabana with a knee strike for a two count. Cabana takes Daniels over with a butterfly suplex. Cabana hits a springboard moonsault, but Daniels kicks out at two.

Cabana counters but Fannin grabs Cabana by the leg. Fannin spits in Cabana’s face and that allows Daniels to get a rollup for the win. (**. The finish was a little lame, but the action was okay throughout. It might have gone a little long, but there was enough here to keep my interest and stay invested in the action.)
Prior to the next match, Zach Gowen cuts a promo saying he can’t believe he went for MSG to this place taking on a guy like Trik Davis. Gowen reminds everyone who he is a few times. Alex Shelley is in his corner, too.
Fourth Contest: Zach Gowen vs. Trik Davis: The early moments of the match come across really awkward and Gowen takes really awful bumps. He’s wrestling with his fake leg on, which is something I’ve never see him do previously. Davis tosses Gowen into the wall, but Gowen comes back to toss Davis into the wall, as well. Davis beats on Gowen with basic strikes in the crowd for a few moments. Davis hits a sit Russian leg sweep and goes to the top rope, but Shelley crotches Davis to drop him to the mat. Gowen removes his leg and decks Davis with it. Gowen covers Davis and wins the match. (1/2*. The crowd didn’t like that finish and it was pretty bad of a match. I’ll give Gowen some credit for coming across like a complete dick and I think anyone would want to see him get destroyed.) After the match, Shelley attacks Davis and tosses the referee out of the ring. Shelley puts the Border City Stretch on Davis and Gowen delivered a stomp for good measure.
Fifth Contest: Emil Sitoci vs. Jimmy Jacobs vs. Nate Webb vs. Arik Cannon vs. Roderick Strong vs. Petey Williams in an elimination match: Williams and Cannon start the match with Williams getting wrist control that lasts two seconds. Strong tags himself in by slapping Petey’s back. Webb tags in as well. Strong yanks Webb by his legs and they have a standoff. Webb tags in Sitoci to keep arm control on Strong. Jacobs tags in and purposely messes up getting in the ring. Jacobs keeps Strong on the mat with a half Boston Crab, but that doesn’t last long as Strong got to the ropes quickly. Jacobs bites Strong’s butt and hits a wheelbarrow headlock to maintain control. Jacobs head scissors Strong sending Roderick to the floor. Cannon tags into the match to try his luck against Jacobs.

Cannon gets pulled to the floor and they brawl until Jacobs hits a springboard dive to the outside. Webb goes to the top rope and takes everyone out with a 630 dive and he whacks his head on chairs. That was incredibly dangerous. Sitoci head scissors Cannon into the corner and does the same to Strong. Sitoci springboards off the top to somersault dive onto Strong.

THE REST OF THE SIX MAN MATCH IS NOT ON THE HIGHSPOTS NETWORK, SO I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO TELL YA. I WILL SAY, THAT THE MATCH WAS PRETTY GOOD UP TO THIS POINT. SO, IF ANYONE HAS THE COMPLETE MATCH, LET ME KNOW.
Sixth Contest: Adam Flash vs. Steve Stone: They start off with a basic mat wrestling start with neither man getting a firm advantage.

Flash instead goes to the top rope and misses a leg drop. Stone drives Flash down with a backbreaker and they both struggle to get up. Stone delivers an STO and signals for a moonsault, which he hits. Stone manages to win the match. (*1/2. I’m assuming this as designed to be a cool down match considering what is left on the show and the match that took place before this one. The action wasn’t bad as they did some good stuff. It’s a tough spot to really excel when its wedged between matches with such top level talent.)
Seventh Contest: AJ Styles vs. Matt Sydal: Early on, they focus on trading mat wrestling holds leading into a standoff between the two. Styles hits a snap powerslam for a two count. Styles hits a kip up hurricanrana to take Sydal down and they have another standoff. They go back to some mat wrestling with Styles chopping Sydal followed by a hip toss.

Sydal tries for a hurricanrana, and takes Styles over nearly winning the match! Sydal drives Styles down to the mat for a two count. Sydal goes to the top rope, but Styles moved and decks Sydal with a lariat to win the match. (****. I mean, that was a great match. If you hadn’t known who Matt Sydal was prior to this one, you’d have to know who he is after it. Safe to say if they wrestle again, I’d be checking it out without question.)
Eighth Contest: Delirious vs. Jerry Lynn: They scream at each other and Delirious is startled by Lynn doing some kung-fu style taunting. Lynn kicks Delirious away followed by an arm drag and Delirious hits himself in the head. The fans are wanting to kill a fake bunny at ringside, so Lynn gives the bunny to a female fan.

Delirious misses Shadows Over Hell and Lynn plants Delirious with the cradle piledriver to win the match. (***. I enjoyed the match but it certainly went a little too long for my liking. Delirious yelling out his finisher, which was countered, really bugged me. I hate when wrestlers do that as it takes me out of the match especially when they get countered. It’s still a solid match.) After the match, Lynn reveals that his back gave out on him when he fell to the floor and apologizes if he stunk up the place. The crowd lets him know that he didn’t.
Ninth Contest: Brad Bradley & Ryan Boz vs. Chad Collyer & Nigel McGuiness: McGuiness and Bradley start the match with McGuinness keeping control on the mat for a few moments. Collyer tags in and gets met with a forearm by Bradley, but drop toe holds Boz. McGuiness enters and keeps Boz on the mat with wrist control. Collyer and Nigel mess up a double team move as Nigel drove Boz down to the mat and Collyer was kneeling in front of them, but needed to be behind them and thus it looked awkward. Nigel drives Boz to the mat falling forward and Collyer is in the right position, but the timing continues to be off a little bit. Boz stops Nigel with a throat thrust. Bradley and Boz nail McGuiness with a few running blows for a two count. Bradley takes Nigel over with a snap suplex. Nigel is slammed to the mat by both men and met with several elbow drops for a two count. Boz nearly pins McGuiness with a suplex.

McGuiness tosses Boz into the crowd. Bradley is tapping out, but the referee gets distracted. Bradley decks Collyer with a lariat. Boz and Bradley tell Fannin to leave the ring and that allows McGuiness to German suplex Boz. Collyer gets an inside cradle on Bradley for the win. (*. The early moments of the match sucked as they focused on mat wrestling and completely killed the crowd. Collyer seemed he was a bit off when doing double team stuff with Nigel. However, when Collyer got his moment to shine on his own, he did a fine job. This felt like a filler of a match and I wasn’t interested in this at all.) After the match, Fannin is told that they don’t need them. Fannin has been fired.
Ian Rotten comes out and reveals that Bobby Heenan will be coming to the company to manage the Havana Pitbulls to take on Brad Bradley and Ryan Boz. If Bradley and Boz win they they get into the tag title tournament, but if they lose, they will never team in the IWA ever again.
The following match isn’t a title match, but rather a surprise opponent taking on BJ Whitmer.

Whitmer tries for an exploder suplex but settles for a superkick. Joe takes Whitmer over with a German, exploder and a full nelson suplex for a three count. (**1/2. A decent match with Whitmer holding his own, but it certainly came across like Joe was the star here and Whitmer was going to lose. I was glad that Whitmer made it competitive and hit a few impressive moves.)
Prior to the next match, Samoa Joe comes out and shakes hands with both Chris Hero and B-Boy. Joe says he came here for one reason. He has kept hearing about Chris Hero for a long time. Joe wants to have a match with Hero tonight whether B-Boy is involved or not. Hero says he is a man of honor and has unfinished business with B-Boy. He wants to finish it tonight and then he’ll go to war with Joe.
Eleventh Contest: Chris Hero vs. B-Boy in a best two out of three falls match: As expected, they start the match with some basic holds countering each other on the mat. The first several minutes of the match are just counters of holds. Boy decks Hero with a forearm to stagger Hero into the corner.

Hero and Boy trade forearms in the middle of the ring. Boy backslides Hero and wins the match. Boy: 2 – Hero 1. (**. Fans are chanting this as being MOTY, but this really did not hold my interest at all and it felt like it took forever to get through. The strong style approach is a tough one to get me attached to. I’m not sure why Hero lost here when promoting a match with Samoa Joe, but I guess they know what they are doing.)
Samoa Joe taunts Chris Hero saying he’s sick and tired of people showing love and respect and thinks that Hero is afraid to fight him on May 29th. Hero appears to accept the challenge after some taunting.
Main Event: Wifebeater vs. Corporal Robinson in a two out of three tables match: They apparently literally have only three tables at ringside, so the budget is tight for the main event. They start off with forearms and Wifebeater hits a powerslam followed by a low blow. Wifebeater beats on Robinson with scissors to cause Robinson to bleed. They trade chair shots and Robinson destroys Wifebeater with a shot to the head. Robinson takes Wifebeater off the apron with a side Russian leg sweep through a table to win the first fall.

Robinson tries for a back suplex, but the table still doesn’t break. A German suplex doesn’t break the table. Robinson hits a powerbomb, but the table still doesn’t break. Robinson brings the table to the floor and sets it up. Robinson hits a side Russian leg sweep off the apron, and the table still doesn’t break. Robinson suplexs Wifebeater from the apron to the floor, but the TABLE STILL DOESN’T BREAK. The match ends in a draw. (DUD. They must have been running short on time and just burned through the match. This was awful on so many levels. I wrote the previous sentence prior to the restart. It was hilarious to watch these guy fail to break a table. They did stupid stuff and it just wasn’t stupid enough.)
Well, this is a 4+ hour show and it really isn’t that enjoyable to justify spending four hours watching the whole show. I’m exhausted after watching this show. I need a break for a bit. Thus, I can’t recommend this show. An example of too much on a show. Though, I would suggest watching AJ/Sydal.
