Wrecent Wrasslin' Wrap-Up

I've had the good fortune to attend not one, but TWO wrasslin' shows lately. NXT brought their live event show (house show to those not working in WWE) near me so I got to scratch one off my wrasslin' bucket list. I also went to a local wrasslin' promotion called RSWF (Real South Wrestling Federation) in Memphis. Five bucks, a couple of hours on a Saturday night, and some indy wrasslin' as raw and dirty as it could be.

The guy in red was called Mario and came out to Super Mario Bros. music.
The Duchess Ayzali. The announcer claimed she was from the UK, but I heard her jaw with some fans and her accent was dubious. Or, rather, nonexistent. 

Kayla Lynn vs the Duchess was easily the match of the night. These two broke out at least five moves I've legit never seen before. Very impressed.

And weirdly there is (terribly shaky) video footage of the match! Which was apparently shot directly over my shoulder.

Pure Power.

Pure Power chokelsamming the heel commentator, despite being heels themselves. It was welcome, though.
#DIY (pre-breakup). Ciampa was trying on Nikki Cross's jacket.
Not sure what Sanity was pointing at.
Hey, I actually caught a wrestling move without it being blurry AF.
"Cien" Almas
Hideo Itami (pre-heel turn) vs Almas
Aleister Black somehow talked WWE into the Raven-type entrance where he gets plenty of rest before his match.
Black vs Cezar Bononi
Billie Kay and Peyton Royce
The main star I wanted to see, ASUKA!
Asuka and Ruby Riot celebrating their tag victory.
nXt champion Bobby Roode, easily the most over person of the night. 
His entrance, even at a live event, was incredible GLORIOUS.
Roode vs recent Smackdown debutee "Perfect Ten" Tye Dillinger. 

Great, long match with Roode standing tall at the end.
But wait...Roode still wants to beat Dillinger down!
But of course, got to leave the fans on a good note and Dillinger runs Roode off and celebrates with the fans. Great night and a great show.
