Oney Lorcan vs Danny Burch

With this match happening, one dream I so far didn’t know I had came true. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch had a short, hard hitting encounter that was still promising in a slightly different way. Here are my thoughts. Enjoy!

Nikki Cross vs Asuka

I was immensely looking forward to this match and both, Asuka and Nikki Cross, didn’t disappoint. In a match of almost twenty minutes there was everything to see: great story, top spots and finally Mauro Ranallo back on commentary. Enjoy!

Oney Lorcan wanted revenge for the humiliation he received from Hideo Itami three weeks ago, and he got his re-match. It was hard-hitting, intense and just pure fun to watch. Enjoy!

“In Zeiten des abnehmenden Lichts” – vom Buch zum Film und wieder zurück

Im Buch von Eugen Ruge wird der Fokus auf den Sohn gelegt, seine Krankheit in der Gegenwart von 2001, an der er bald sterben muß; im Film von Matti Geschonneck stehen die Eltern im Mittelpunkt des Geschehens, während der (Stief)Großvater in beiden Werken längst in der Vergangenheit zurückgeblieben ist. Alles dreht sich um den 90. Geburtstag von Wilhelm Powileit im Jahre 1989 und die Tatsache, daß der Enkel aus der DDR in den Westen abgehauen ist. Erinnerungen werden aufgearbeitet, während die DDR ihren letzten Seufzer abgibt. Gedanken zu einem hochgelobten Buch und einem Film, der hauptsächlich in Programmkinos läuft, wohl weil er die DDR einmal nicht als Vorlage für eine Komödie benutzt.

Raul Mendoza vs Velveteen Dream

Another (too) quick encounter but with a character in The Velveteen Dream whom I find rather interesting (for some strange reason). The guy formerly known as Patrick Clark finally got a gimmick and makes his first impressions to the NXT audience. And because this is what NXT initially was: being a platform for young talent, The Velveteen Dream – together with his opponent Raul Mendoza – makes it to my list of Best NXT Matches of 2017. Enjoy!

Hideo Itami vs Oney Lorcan

Oney Lorcan still has to play the victim. But he does it in his own, highly entertaining, way. On the other side, Hideo Itami’s GTS isn’t as impressive as from the guy WWE doesn’t mention by name. This match doesn’t even have a winner and still it’s part of my list of Best NXT Matches of 2017. If you like to read why, simply click on. Enjoy!

NXT 2017/05/31: Tommaso Ciampa makes sure that the NXT crowd hates him but he still loves Johnny Gargano

With Tommaso Ciampa turning on Johnny Gargano, my enthusiasm for a possible forthcoming Feud of the Year 2017 had been enormous. Unfortunately, it now more looks like possible Feud of the Year 2018 since Tommaso Ciampa suffered from a torn ACL. But before he underwent surgery, he delivered Promo of the Year 2017. And makes me already miss him.
