This evenings WCA show was another successful show bringing in a packed house to the sheraton hotel. The fans were very hot for the matches as they cheer/boo their favorite stars. Overall, everyone gave it their all & gave the fans a great night of wrestling. But as to my Matches of the night, as all the matches were great, these one hooked me the most:
Drake Younger vs Johnny Gargano
Adam Cole vs Jamin Olivencia
Kyle Matthews vs BBOY
All 3 matches were in a word “Intense”..they all worked well with each other delivering some great chemistry in the ring as well as great technical wrestling. I believe these matches gave the fans everything they wanted in a match & made them left happy this evening. Thank you to everyone at Wrestling cares for another wonderful evening of wrestling & looking forward to the next WCA event as they return back to the VFW in Gardena, Ca featuring the host of the next WCA..the scream queen herself Daffney on October 12th @7:30p.
