IWA TV: Results and Ratings Report 10.23.09 - Show One!!


-Tatt2 beat Big Ace by COR

-“Full Scale Assault” [Xander Raines & Jason Steele]/Samoan Raja beat Suicide/“SnS” [Syn/DJ Stunner]

-Seth Knight beat Big Red with “sour face silencer”

-Precious vs Carnage Antwane – Time limit draw


----Precious is looking more and more like a Memphis hooker every week. Well..not that I know what a Memphis hooker looks like, but you know what I mean…Precious in his interview talks to the crowd – talk to the camera!!!...”No water in that swimming pool” – I loved that! LOL…Crappy finish on opener. Ace worked liked a tall Reno Diamond – not as smooth though…Lights went out and The “Baron” Malkavain came out of a casket from ringside and attacked Tatt2. Baron put the “Demon Wings” on Tatt2 and then did a slight pull-a-part. Good angle…Loved the opening shine spots on the 6-man tag. I like a lot of the guys in the 6-man, but just basic psychology would make such a better match. The young guys have a lot of potential, but need psychology training…Cryme steals the Lightweight title during the 6-man and Jason Hall says it was a “title jacking” – everything does not have to be urban cool when it comes out of his mouth. It comes off really unprofessional. Should we just start calling him “Corey Maclin Jr?”…I usually don’t like a ref that you actually notice during a match, but C-Lo Banks is real fun. He ran one time towards the ropes like he was going to dive over them and when Raja hit his finisher Banks bumped. Good stuff…Red needs some kind of gimmick tights, instead of just plain black…Knight looked good in trunks – he has made a total transformation this year – he looks like a wrestler now!!...Why put both your single champs against each other on TV??...Blalok the Blazer comes out to sign a match for “Halloween Massacre” and announces he is the new commish because Reno got suspended. Good mic work from Blazer. Bishop comes out to sign contract for triple threat and ends up spearing CA and putting Precious thru table…Show continues to improve with guys like Blazer and Bishop…Black Dragon/Psycho vs V-Man/Charlie Parks was suppose to air, but I was told it was such a bad match, they replaced with Red vs Knight dark match.

Best Match
-Knight vs Red. A little sloppy in spots, but had a good solid finish.

Worst Match
-Precious vs CA – not just horrible, but nothing to write home about.

Must See?
-Not really, but if they would have had a camera up close for the Bishop spears and powerbomb, it might have been something to watch.


----They finished with the first show of the day with overall over 6,000 viewers. Not a good rating except for the last quarter and that was probably from people turning on to watch the Memphis Wrestling show. They did have more people watching it when it went off, so that is good. The show actually does seem to improve from the first set of tapings, but they still got a long way to go to establish the show and have the ratings mean something at the box office.
