Ok taking the time to sit down and read Kingdom Come start to finish with an open mind. Below is my review as I read it.
The opening segment was interesting. The IPITS part got a chuckle from me. The beginning part had it's uniqueness. The first match, Ma$$ vs Shuriken, one word. Epic. That was a great match. From start to finish I really enjoyed it.
It's cool to see Jman to see in BITW, but the segment with Siaki in the finisher after finisher without putting Siaki down, just came off unrealistic to me. It's a finisher for a reason. Maybe my thought comes from not knowing the Siaki character that well, but that is just how i view it from an outside perspective, knowing only of Shuriken, Jman, K-Jammin, and Ma$$.
I enjoyed the Alpha Dog promo.
The Athena vs Sasha/Barbie match and Athena vs M.I.A.M.I matches were interesting. I get the reasoning behind them, though i would have rather see Athena make quicker work of Sasha and barbie to show her dominance and that whether it's 1 on 1, 2 on 1, 3 on 1, she is too powerful to face women. I also liked the ending to the Athena M.I.A.M.I. match
The horrorcore match was ok. I would have liked to see more action, I enjoyed the video though.
The tag match was good. I enjoyed it. I am glad to see the Panzer Division pick up the win.
The shoot promo between Shaz and Eclipse was interesting. The Shaz/Eclipse match was also ok.
The intergender tag match was also good.
I also really liked Sleepers promo.
The Deprise Muir match was good. I didn't like the video used though. I would have rather seen an actual wrestling match used.
I felt the fatal fourway match that Doom won was kind of short.
The triple threat tag match was good.
The Horrocore title match didn't appeal to me. I expected something epic, and in my eyes, it fell flat. I get what you guys were going for, but I just felt like a brutal match would have been better.
I really enjoyed the main event match. Good to see the Alpha dog get the win. I was pegging him or Sleepers for the win after their promos, as going off of promos alone, either of them two deserved it. The ending to the show was also interesting to read as well..
So, having fully ready the show, and seeing what all went into it, I can understand why it took nearly 2 months to get the show together. Is it the best show ever to grace EWN in my eyes? No. Is it ONE of the bests? Definitely. While it was a slow start for BITW, this show made it a great start. Hopefully with unscripted, and the next BITW, the momentum can keep going, though I hope it's not another 2 months before we get Take No Prisoners. lastly, something I wanted to touch base on. The use of hashtags, twitter, quotes and what not, was excessive. I didn't like it, and i felt like it took away from the show. I'm sure others loved it, and felt it gave BITW that uniqueness that most efeds sought after, but I can say after the first page, when I saw a # or a quote, unless it was a promo, I most skipped it(though one caught my eye and made me laugh). That is just my opinion though.
All in all, good show. Give it an A easily. Best of luck to Kash and Rated Rob in what they do next
