It's a great show, just beware of the G-Raver moment during the ladder/everything match if that's going to affect you.

GCW Bloodsport
Just about any Beyond card with a really sick looking Dickinson match, The Real Thing is a pretty solid card with a fantastic Dickinson/Joe match but Americanrana 2019 has Dickinson vs Sekimoto
If you have to pick a CHIKARA show KOT 09 night 2 has the classic Ibushi/Generico/Matt Jackson/Jigsaw match
CZW New Heights 2015

This should give you a decent look at the big promotions with large libraries on the service (GCW doesn't have a large backlog yet but it is the best promotion on the service) and if you like someone on one of these shows, better odds than not they've got more matches to search through, especially in the bizarrely deep IWA-MS library. Just be wary of promotions in the Gary Jay belt and you'll be fine.

Okay, it's 2 shows, but let me recommend IWA Mid-South's Ted Petty Invitational 2002. Lemme just post the 1st round bracket to make my point for me

Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Ken Anderson vs. Colt Cabana
Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Nate Webb vs. Nick Mondo
Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Ace Steel vs. Super Dragon
Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Matt Murphy vs. BJ Whitmer
Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Tarek The Great vs. Jimmy Rave
Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Matt Stryker vs. Chris Hero
Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
Christopher Daniels vs. AJ Styles
IWA Mid-South Heavyweight Title Ted Petty Invitational 2002 First Round Match
CM Punk (c) vs. M-Dogg 20

So that's Ken Anderson aka Ken Kennedy from WWE/Impact/etc, Colt Cabana, death match legend Sick Nick Mondo, Spyder Nate Webb, CM Punk's trainer Ace Steel, PWG main man Super Dragon, AEW's BJ Whitmer, Harley Race trainee Matt Murphy, Jimmy Rave of ROH & TNA, early IWA standout Tarek The Great, "not that one" Matt Stryker, from Ohio, not the lovely commentator, Chris Hero, AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, CM Punk, M-Dogg Matt Cross, Son of Havoc from Lucha Underground. It's weird, it's early in all their careers, that makes it fun! (If you really only want to watch one show from them though, see Night 2 of this TPI, it's got some good stuff.

He did an AJPW tour too, I remember someone saying on the PWG board it just didn't go well at all, partly because they parked him in their dead rear end Jr division, when he wasn't doing the traditional "Heavyweight & Jr. tag match" and he jobbed quite a lot

http://www.profightdb.com/wrestlers...html?prom_id=37

Part of it I think is that Dragon is compelling when he can murder his opponents at his leisure, and I feel like if he busted out the violence party on his 1st tour it might get some heat

Iirc he actually lost

Then again it was 15 years ago. All i really remember about that show was I had a long convo with Chris Hero that like 99% of all backstage wrestling convos never really finish and get interrupted and then I met Hero again at the ECW arena a couple months later and we took up the same convo almost exactly where it left off.


Weird the things you remember when you've been at it as long as I have.


Ask me to do the title history? Nope not a chance.

The time Kevin Steen and a bunch of us went drinking and Kevin wouldn't help an annoying mark who drunk fell down 2 steps and made it sound like they were dying? Clear as day.

I was watching this without sound while playing a tabletop RPG on Discord with some friends and got yelled at, during that specific match, because I was very clearly just paying attention to the wrestling match instead of my friends.

I can't wait to go back and watch it again with sound on .

Every Rumble match that they've run has been fantastic and the 2019 Rumble also has a really good Chuck Mambo/TK Cooper match on the card. It's also worth watching the entire Brighton Championship Tournament to see the feuds that have basically built the company.
