WrestleCon Pancakes and Piledrivers
Orlando, Florida at the Hyatt Regency
Report by Dot Net staffer Zack Zimmerman

1. Jeff Cobb defeated David Starr. A fun opener that went just the right amount of time. Cobb hit Tour of the Islands for the win.

2. Palmer beat Dezmond Xavier, ACH, Michael Elgin, and Moose in a five-way. Palmer won with a second rope tombstone. He literally did two things the whole match, so if the point was to get him over, mission failed.

3. Eddie Kingston over Kruger. Kruger is better known as Leo Kruger and Adam Rose. Kingston said the crowd is shitty. Kruger took a bunch of unprotected headshots, and was gashed deep hardway. Kingston used his blood like war paint. I was out. Kingston won apparently after massacring Kruger.

4. Jack Evans and Angelico defeated Dave and Jake Crist. The Crist Brothers took bumps into the crowd, ala Sami Callihan, completely ignorant that the barricade is where the line is drawn. What a liability. No warning, nothing? Bumping into the crowd? I hope nobody sues.

5. Ricochet defeated Shane Strickland. As expected, the match was quite good. Ricochet broke out a new lifting spike complete shot as a finish to pick up the win. I enjoyed that a lot.

6. Jake Manning beat Su Yung. It was a match. They brawled. The crowd didn’t really care. Manscout won with a piledriver onto a stack of pancakes. Get it? Su spit blood in his face afterwards to get the preverbal last word, I suppose

7. Rey Fenix and Penta OM defeated Brian Cage and Sami Callihan. They opened hot out of the gate and kept the pace from beginning to end. Very fun match. Lucha Bros won with a package piledriver rolled into a destroyer.

9. Jason Cade won in AR Fox Open Invitation to become champion. A wild mess. In spite of a couple bright spots,

I really did not enjoy this show at all. I’m kind of blown away by how far superior the WWN experience is to the WrestleCon shows in every facet except that WrestleCon allows outside food and drink.


The new edition of the Pro Wrestling Boom Podcast with Jason Powell features ProWrestling.net's Will Pruett discussing AEW Full Gear including the polarizing Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega match, what's drawing Will to AEW Dynamite over NXT TV, the appeal of NWA Powerrr, and much more...

    That’s a bummer to hear, as this card looked very enticing to me. If I was in Orlando, I would have gone.

    Maybe I’m a little biased because I’ve been a much longer fan of EVOLVE and early, Gabe-booked ROH, but the WWN shows coming together stronger than the WrestleCon shows doesn’t surprise me. I do wish all of the shows were at their best though.

  2. Yeah this show was fantastic and none of what you said was factual. Granted I wasn’t aware of this show until I came in. But the crowd was crazy and excited the entire show. Get your facts straight you Debbie Downer.

  3. What is this mediocre “writing?” This is by no means a review of a show so much as a blog of the “author’s” personal preferences written with little to no effort.
