----121 paid with 150 in the building. Good for their debut and seem to be holding onto what NBW built in this arena…Next week all the winners [of this week] advance to the 2nd round…The gimmick was Big Dave and Allen Wallker drew names from a bucket and that was who was going to work each other. 2nd round for the FTW Title plus 2 huge 1st round tag team title matches with the Missouri Bad Boys vs “Naughty by Nature” [Rude and Tully] and The “Asylum” [Psycho/Pappy] vs Syn/Stunner. I like the idea of getting the champ and tag team titles out of the way. And, PLEASE guys – have one single champion and one tag team champions!!...The fans and workers loved the new look of the building and bringing in some new and old faces that hasn’t been there…Biggest pop of the night was for Oz [who is over big time here] but Rickey Andrews and Running Wolf…LeVeigh got lots of heat and had some problems with the crowd. Apparently his gum went out in the crowd. Anton apparently apologized and no heat…They used Sarge as a heel with MMM, which surprised me. Sarge can be tons over as a baby here, but they are probably going to build for that. With that said, Sarge might be smart here by putting himself in the opening type angle and pushing the younger guys….I have heard nothing but good things about the overall presentation of the show. Dressing room was described as “best I have been in” with the remodeling. No alcohol was allowed backstage and everyone was paid a guarantee [same across the board]. They will try to get a good mix of familiar faces and new faces and it will help. On paper, this did not look like a great card, but then they are coming back next week with two big tag matches. They also have no one in the building yet that has the heat of Jeremy Moore, but that will take time.
