One week ago, Lucha Forever brought you a tag team street fight that literally went into the street, a wild and wooly women's fourway, and, I mean, holy crap, that trios match, right? It’s not on the FloSlam VOD, unfortunately, but such is 2017 pro wrestling with its everchanging boundaries and whatnot.

Check it out on FloSlam, folks.

Check it out when it goes up on Smart Mark Video, folks.

PWG Head Like a Cole (May 19)

  7. Zack Sabre, Jr. (c) over Trent? to retain the PWG World Championship

Well, PWG have settled it. Keith Lee is the Lee-most and Trevor will have to join Trent? in the realm of the single-named. ...what? That wasn't actually a stipulation? Darn. Anyway, it's PWG, folks, either you're salivating over these matches just fine without my help or you wish half of them were held somewhere more relevant to your interests. No goodbye from Adam Cole here, but it's pretty cool seeing Lio pick up another big win like that.

Pre-order the DVD here if you like, folks.

  7. Maxwell Jacob Friedman over Buxx Belmar
  8. EYFBO (Angel Ortiz & Mike Draztik) over Gentleman's Club (Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy)
  9. John Silver over Sami Callihan

As you can see, Drew Cordeiro's gallows humor was in full effect when he changed the name of the show to Death Knell when Paul London had to pull out due to injury. He was replaced against David Starr by Tessa Blanchard, Brian Milonas turned on Ace Romero after their match, Ryan Galeone quit before Veda Scott could fire him, and after beating Sami Callihan, John Silver called out Batista, because why not.

Check it out on Beyondemand, folks.

Evolve 84 / 85 (May 20-21)

—Evolve 84 (May 20)—

  1. Keith Lee over Donovan Dijak
  2. Fred Yehi over Jason Kincaid

  8. Zack Sabre, Jr. (c) over Lio Rush to retain the Evolve World Championship

As always, since I have my recaps (84, 85), I'll just point you to those, but Evolve had a killer weekend of shows here, with in particular the escalating series that was Williams/O'Reilly, Yehi/Lee, and Sabre/Rush II on 85 all being top, top matches.

Check it out on FloSlam, folks.

IPW:UK Supershow 9 (May 21)

  1. El Ligero over Dezmond Xavier
  2. Livvii Grace (c) over Chakara to retain the IPW:UK Women's Championship
  3. Big Grizzly over Angelico
  4. DND (Cieran Donnelly & Danny Duggan) & Tom Dawkins over Jimmy Havoc & the NAK (BT Gunn & Chris Renfrew)
  5. Jon Ryan over Cuban Heat, winning the 10,000 Cuban Peso Challenge
  6. Jody Fleisch & Jonny Storm over #CCK (Chris Brookes & Kid Lykos), Hunter Brothers (Jim & Lee Hunter), and London Riots (James Davis & Rob Lynch)
  7. Scott Star over Sammy Smooth (c) to win the IPW:UK All-England Championship

Despite some late roster changes with Zachary Wentz and Ryan Smile out of action, IPW shuffled the card and had some big happenings all the same. Amazon made her return after the women's title match, Jon Ryan came back and ended Cuban Heat's challenge at Joel Gertner's behest and, perhaps most ineffably, the events of the trios match.

Jimmy Havoc, before the match, warned the babyface team that he had a mole amongst them. It seemingly lead to discord during the match but that turned out to be a ploy to take Havoc off guard and Dawkins pinned the champion. Afterwards, however, Duggan blindsided his partner Donnelly and claimed he wasn't turning on him for Havoc, but for his own reasons. DND, meanwhile, are still the tag champions. Interesting times!

Check it out on FloSlam if you like.

PWX What Lies Beneath (May 21)

  1. Elijah Evans IV (c) over James Drake to retain the PWX iTV Championship
  2. High Profile (Shea Shea McGrady & Will Demented) over Ace Austin & Malakai Matthews
  3. Tracer X over Darius Lockhart
  4. Corey Hollis over David Starr
  5. John Skyler over Jonathan Gresham
  6. "Manscout" Jake Manning over White Mike and Zane Riley
  7. Syndicate (Devan Knight & Timmy Lou Retton) over Ugly Ducklings (Lance Lude & Rob Killjoy) (c) to win the PWX Tag Team Championship
  8. Anthony Henry (c) over Ethan Case to retain the PWX World Heavyweight Championship

As always for shows I'll be recapping, we'll keep it short and sweet, but know this-- Teddy Long was present, and he made both a tag team match (the second on the card there) AND he made someone go one on one (on one) with the Undertaker. Or, well, White Mike dressed as the Undertaker. Same thing! White Mike is a legend in his own time.

Check it out when it goes up on Highspots Wrestling Network.

As always...
