Keith Lee has reportedly been offered a WWE deal. And there have been some indications that he has accepted it. Perhaps, we’ll find more about those plans Saturday night.
Lee will defend the PWG title in a three-way match against WALTER and Jonah Rock in the main event of PWG All-Star Weekend 14, Night 2 in Reseda, Calif. Could a Lee loss mean he’s bidding farewell to the indie scene and we’ll see him next in NXT? Time will tell.
Lee won the title at PWG Time is a Flat Circle last month, beating Chuck Taylor. He has been a huge star on the indies for a few years now. WALTER, though a longtime veteran, has emerged over the last year as a hot property and Rock has been an extremely underrated cog on PWG cards going back to the Battle of Los Angeles last September.
In addition to Lee vs. WALTER vs. Rock, PWG All-Star Weekend 14, Night 2 will have a surprising tag title matchup between new champions The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz) and Violence Unlimited (Brody King & Tyler Bateman). The Rascalz surprisingly beat The Young Bucks and Chosen Bros (Matt Riddle & Jeff Cobb). Riddle takes on Timothy Thatcher in the semi main event Saturday night.
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:
Trevor Lee vs. Flash Morgan Webster
Lee with a suplex variation at 10:52. He is such an ideal talent to open shows, Really gets the crowd into it with mic work before the match. Webster is a great babyface to match the heel antics. Really solid match.
Robbie Eagles vs. Joey Janela
Janela with a brainbuster from the top rope at 14:38. Wow. This was really good. One of Janela’s best matches in PWG. Janela landed a tombstone on the floor and a package piledriver that looked brutal. The super brainbuster was crazy. Eagles had a hard time getting over Friday night, but he definitely did tonight.
The Rascalz (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz) vs. Violence Unlimited (Brody King & Tyler Bateman)
A bit of a mess at the end, but damn good for what it was. Really fun match. Wentz pinned Bateman at 13:21 with the standing moonsault.
Bandido vs. Rey Horus
Wow! Incredible match and worth your while to seek out. They absolutely tore it down with some lucha flavor. Bandido won with a moonsault off the top rope while holding Horus in a body slam position. Finish was at 12:03. Sensational.
Sammy Guevara vs. Taiji Ishimori
Guevara with a shooting star press at 9:07. Ishimori seemed to injure himself early on a springboard and the match never recovered. Weird one.
Afterward, Guevara cuts a promo saying he won’t compete in PWG any longer if he doesn’t get a title shot.
Matthew Riddle vs. Timothy Thatcher
Riddle at 10:50 with the Bromission. Really good while it lasted. Maybe a bit too short, but this has been a well-paced show. No complaints.
Keith Lee vs. WALTER vs. Jonah Rock
WALTER is the new PWG champion! He pins Lee after a massive lariat at 13:32. Great, great hoss match. Rock turned heel part of the way through, landing groin shots on both Lee and WALTER. WALTER set up the finish by coming off the top rope — yes, you read that correctly — for a splash on Lee. Lee did an absolutely ridiculous flipping suicide dive onto Rock and WALTER at one point.
Afterward, Lee cut a promo said he didn’t do what former champion Chuck Taylor had asked about being a better champion than he was. Lee said he hopes WALTER now will be. Lee didn’t explicitly say he was headed to WWE, but there have been implications.
Guevara came back out when Lee was finished and got in WALTER’s face. WALTER responded by landing a massive chop, sending Guevara out of the ring. Fitting end to a fantastic card.
