The Young Bucks will bid adieu to Reseda on Friday night.
There are just three PWG shows left at the famed American Legion Post #308, one of the last historic professional wrestling venues in the United States still known for being used for the medium. The building was sold recently and PWG announced that May 25 will be the last time it will hold an event inside the hallowed, albeit dilapidated, halls.
Matt and Nick Jackson have both written on Twitter that they will not be at one of the final two shows. So, Friday night is the last time to see probably the best tag team to ever set foot in the venue in Reseda.
The Bucks will take on the champion Chosen Bros (Matt Riddle and Jeff Cobb) and the Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier and Zachary Wentz) in a three-way match for the PWG tag titles in the main event of PWG All-Star Weekend 2018, Night 1.
PWG first held a show at American Legion Post #308 in 2006 and it became essentially its permanent home in 2008.
After debuting in PWG in 2007, The Young Bucks first performed in the building on Feb. 24, 2008 in a match against Ronin and Scorpio Sky at PWG Dia De Los Dangerous. They won their first PWG tag titles in the building on Aug. 31, 2008, beating the team of Jimmy Jacobs and Tyler Black (now known as Seth Rollins). The Bucks are now four-time tag champions in PWG and the team and the promotion have become somewhat synonymous. The Jackson brothers are Southern California natives.
This Friday will be the very last time Matt and I wrestle at the famous Reseda Legion Hall. That building and @OfficialPWG made us who we are today!— The Young Bucks (@NickJacksonYB) April 16, 2018
In addition to what should be a wild, three-way tag main event, current PWG champion Keith Lee will face the debuting Hangman Page in a non-title match.
We’ll be updating the results, news and notes live from American Legion Post #308 in Reseda, starting at the scheduled 8 p.m. PT bell time:
Before the action starts, Excalibur announces some "weird news." The sale of the Legion Post has not closes. So May 25 might not actually be the final show here.
Rey Horus vs. Trevor Lee
Fun opener. Horus in about 14:00 with a rolling flip off the top rope. Lee is one of the most over heels in PWG and always tells a good story. Horus is a super talented flier.
Ringkampf (Timothy Thatcher & WALTER) vs. Violence Unlimited (Brody King & Tyler Bateman)
Wow. That was really tremendous. WALTER by choke at 19:29 on King. We all know how good WALTER and Thatcher are, but King is a breakout prospect. He has a chance to be something special. His toe to toes with WALTER in this one were awesome.
Bandido vs. Taiji Ishimori
Ishimori at 13:37 with his face buster finisher. Great, fast-paced match. Ishimori looked like a star in his PWG debut. He got the "please come back!" treatment.
Robbie Eagles vs. Sammy Guevara vs. Flash Morgan Webster
Guevara at 12:56 after a shooting star press onto Webster applying a gullotine choke to Eagles. Solid match. Had a hard time followinf Ringkampf vs. King & Bateman. Not bad by any stretch, though
Joey Janela vs. Jonah Rock
Terrific short match. Rock has been getting better and better here. He seems like a rising star. Janela obviously knows how to entertain and he got knocked around good in this match. Rock won with a frog splash at 11:21.
Keith Lee vs. Hangman Page
Lee with his jackhammer finisher at 21:26. Fun match. Page apparently forgot to tan his back, which was completely white. The crowd was chanting "Tanman!" throughout. The ring broke in the Rock-Janela match and seemed to lump up again in this one.
Chosen Bros (Matt Riddle & Jeff Cobb) vs. The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) vs. The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz)
Rascalz with the upset in about 19:00! Amazing match. Tore the house down. Wentz pinned Cobb after a double knee while Cobb had Xavier on his back in a crucifix position. Crisp, hard-hitting sprint of a match with a ton of inventive spots. Xavier and Wentz really shined. They have emerged as a team to watch — and now they’re the new PWG tag champions.
