  4. Wreck vs Tenshi X NR
  5. NDA vs Holliday, Kemp ***1/2


I always love seeing an indie fed get a lot of buzz built up and DPW has done exactly that. This right here is the debut episode of season two of their Fire program.

The episode starts with Bojack, having apparently just won the brand's top prize to become the inaugural champion, coming out to have a chat with the crowd. JTG cut him off instantly, with the endgame here to set up a future match between the two.

Our first match of the night was a fun sprint. Both were good, Myles was better. A bit rough around the edges, but solid levels of entertainment and it kicked us off nicely.

Wreck wrecked three fools. I'm not a huge fan of Goldberg booking though, but to each their own.

The main event was very good, even with the cheap finish.

I know this is apparently a money mark fed or whatever, but I have very little info on the people attached and have never listened to their podcast. I likely wont start, to be very clear. I just don't have a lot of time for that. That said, I had fun. It's a fan friendly indie fed that has a decent roster, energetic crowds, and the booking was even okay here. 

Even more important, I thought for their level that the production rate was decent.

I walked in on a whim and walked out interested to see more. That's all I can ask for. This was a strong first impression and I think you might like it, too.

Click play above and give it a chance.
