I got to see the Progressive Liberal tonight!

He's...not very good.

I'm a big CWF Mid-Atlantic fan, and I saw Chet Sterling and Aric Royal were in a tag team. Chet is face and Aric is heel in CWF, is Aric a babyface in NOVA or what? How was their match with the Ugly Ducklings?

Honestly I'm very interested in a rundown of the whole show.

I probably can't give a good rundown just because I'm not great at that. That tag match both teams seemed to be working as some sort of tweener. I'm not sure I would say there was a clear heel or babyface. It was a pretty fun match though. One of the better ones, for sure. Let's see what I can remember:

There was some sort of tag match going on, but we got there late and only really caught the end.

Brittany Blake fought Allie Kat in a decent match. The crowd seemed mixed on who to cheer for. Blake won with a WWE-patented rollup when Kat was arguing with the ref who pulled out a laser pointer and distracted her.

Fred Yehi vs Tim Donst was a fun match, though it took awhile to get going as they did some comedy bits at the start. Donst offered Yehi one of his kneepads for safety. Yehi accepted it after getting dropped on a knee and getting hurt. He then went to do something off the ropes and they were too loose (the ring crew loosened them before the match), so they stopped and tightened the ropes with lots of "SAFETY FIRST" chants going on.

Innocent Isaiah and Faye Jackson vs. Veda Scott and Chuck Taylor TM was okay, Isaiah and Jackson were the faces and Scott and Taylor were the heels. Taylor sang a song before the match. It involved lots of mixed-gender action (since Isaiah is a tiny guy and Jackson is a large woman), and heels won, I believe.

Dan Richards the Progressive Liberal vs. Money Greene had clear alignments and Richards won in a short, not great match. Money Greene seems fun.

6-man tag between The Carnies and The 1%. The Carnies were supposed to be the babyfaces here, but the 1% were getting a lot of support (including an entire section that had light up foam fingers). It dragged and the kind of small ring made it all seem like it was constantly full. There was some weird spot where the Carnies made one of the 1% do a Canadian destroyer off the turnbuckle on another one? It wasn't clear and didn't make a whole lot of sense. The Carnies won with a tombstone piledriver and the Undertaker pin. This dragged a bit longer than seemed necessary.

Keith Lee fought Angelus Layne in a no-DQ match. The stipulation was barely relevant, though, as the most that happened was Layne using a chair on Lee a few times. His big slaps on her chest were crazy, and it was about as good a match as I would have expected. Lee eventually won, and showed Layne respect for fighting hard.

Overall, it was a fun show, and I'll totally go again, but it was longer than I thought it would be. They had a pre-show match at like 7:45, we got there around 8:15 (official start was 8), and it went until almost 11. I think MCW puts on a better product overall, but this is closer, and live wrestling is always fun.

Nova Pro Wrestling - Cool for the Summer - 8/18/2017
https://www.cagematch.net/?id=1&nr=182061

It was the first sell out crowd in Nova Pro history, which is pretty great. The Annandale VFD Bingo Hall does have a lower capacity than the JCC, but it was very packed and the crowd was fairly hot. This was an angle-light show with good wrestling up and down the card and a lot of comedy.

The video camera crew got stuck in traffic on 495 so the very early matches on the card were on Periscope:
https://twitter.com/VAWrestling/sta...692966751096832
Near the end of that clip you can see the Indy Geek Six Man Scramble, where one of the indy geeks does a One Winged Angel in a six minute match on the preliminary card. It was otherwise a solid match with a lot of cool dives.

Allie Kat vs. Brittany Blake was good, Allie Kat got booked back after her great showing on that tryout card a few months ago.

Crowd enjoyed Veda Scott and Chuck Taylor vs. Faye Jackson and Innocent Isaiah, Stokely was way over with his singing gimmick and they got a lot out of it. Beau Crockett attacked Isaiah, who challenge Beau to a Last Man Standing match at next month's show. The Cutie and the Beast feud must continue.

John Kermon vs. Chip Day was okay, not a lot of heat for it and Chip did not seem that comfortable working Kermon's MMA style.

Tim Donst vs. Fred Yehi was strong. Donst has gotten over a "safety first" gimmick in this promotion after having to stop to tie his shoe during a match a few shows back. Yehi participated in it early when he noticed the middle rope was loose and they stopped the match to tighten the anchors and the crowd loved it. Eventually they started doing a match it was good.

Royal/Sterling vs. the Ugly Ducklings was great and the crowd once again gave a standing ovation for a Ducklings match. I thought it was slightly weaker than last month's Ducklings vs. Gymnasty Boys match, mostly because Royal can't bump the way White Mike and Timmy Lou were bumping for the Ducklings. But it was still very entertaining and Arik Royal had so much fun that he got on the mic and said he wanted to do the match again. To Sub Rosa's question, Royal and Sterling are both faces here. Royal had an "undefeated in Nova Pro" gimmick going for like the first 18 months of the promotion until he finally lost to Logan Easton Laroux in the Commonwealth Cup. That included defeating like Chris Hero, Fred Yehi, and David Starr, so he got over in that time.

The Progressive Liberal vs. Money Greene was exactly what you expected. PL is a lower level indy guy in terms of wrestling experience, he's just got the gimmick. Money Greene is an incredible talker with the rich guy gimmick and he's also a guy that seems like he started training when older because he loved wrestling, so he was never trying to be a tremendous worker. He knows his level. He is actually relatively over with the crowd here because of his "cheat to eat" catchphrase and he had to cut a pro-Trump promo to get a little more heat on him than usual. Dan Richards has funny gear and he knew that this is the liberal part of the country so he was a face and they played the roles well and had a sub-par wrestling match. I heard a couple people talking pre-show near me that were explaining that they came to their first Nova Pro show last night just to see The Progressive Liberal, so he no doubt sold some tickets to the event.

1% vs. Carnies was a good match. Both teams are heels but Carnies are a little less hated than rich people so they played the faces. Everyone in the match was good and they had a good six-man tag.

The main event, Keith Lee vs. Angelus Layne, was tremendous. If you recall from last month, Angelus Layne shot a fireball into the face of the promoter Mike King, and her "reward" was that he called in Keith Lee (for the first time in Nova Pro) to get vengeance on her. Earlier in the show Angelus came out after they sang happy birthday to Papa Hales and tore up a Papa Hales shirt to get heat. Keith came out and offered that she could apologize to the promoter and he wouldn't destroy her, which she refused. Match was then set to be no disqualification. During Keith's entrance she came and whacked him with a chair, and the main "no DQ" part of the match was that a chair was in the ring most of the time to help Angelus equalize against a clearly more powerful Lee. The match was very good, although the crowd was pissing me off. Individual people in the crowd were trying to get themselves over by shouting things and because the venue is small Keith kept hearing them and responding. That hurt it a little. But in it was a great power battle. Keith Lee won but he gave Angelus respect after the match and also vowed to return to Nova Pro.

Next month is The Nova Project 3, which is the second anniversary of the promotion and the start of year 3. If the blow off Beau/Isaiah then they'll need to hopefully jumpstart some new stories, because everything else has been wrapped up now that Angelus has been defeated. Only stuff announced so far is Arik Royal trying to get his revenge on "The Champion of the 1%" Logan Easton Laroux, the Beau/Isaiah Last Man Standing, and the return of Mia Yim. They didn't even announce any big booked names on the show last night. That one is 9/22 at the Jewish Community Center.

Carnies are great. That Canadian Destroyer move is great, when executed properly. Maybe whoever in 1% beefed it?

Nick Iggy yelled "Forced Destroyer!" when they did it so it made sense to me what was happening. It was Bobby Shields and Alexander James taking it. They had reversed the first attempt and it still took too long to set up the successful second try. Eh, it was fine.

Yeah, that's what it's called. The Tombstone variant is the IOU1 Driver.

To Sub Rosa's question, Royal and Sterling are both faces here.

Thanks. That's a little weird to me since it's explicitly in the same universe as CWF. The Chet/Logan feud is continuing in CWF, for example (likely will be the finals of the Weaver Cup tournament). Arik is way better as a heel, tbh, look forward to when they turn him.
