I'm all for some unknowns getting upsets, but I think they went a little to heavy on the upsets.

Using those match-ups, I would have done a final 8 of Perkins, Strong, O'Reilly, Cage, Steen, Callihan, Generico and Elgin.

Course, with the Super Smash Brothers winning the tag titles recently, PWG has shown they are not afraid to pull the trigger on an unknown.

I don't think anyone saw that coming.

I really enjoyed his work in FutureShock, but I certainly don't see him as a BOLA winner level yet. Hopefully he proves me wrong.

I always thought O'Reilly was the better prospect personally. I'm pretty anxious to check these shows out to see if he changes my mind

I just got both dvd's the other day and both nights were really good. On night one Kyle O'Reilly vs Eddie Edwards was really good, same with the Michael Elgin vs Davey Richards. Also the Adam Cole vs El Generico was good and Adam Cole in full heel mode was awesome. Some highlights from night two was the Eddie Edwards vs Adam Cole, and Brian Cage vs Michael Elgin matches. The B-Boy, Willie Mack and Drake Younger vs Team Sleaze(Joey Ryan, Davey Richards, Kyle O'reilly) 6 man tag was good. Davey and Kyle were both in full Joey Ryan mode which was great. The Young Bucks and Brian Cage vs Generico, Rick Knox and Steen 6 man was cool, along with the triple tope spot. The Cole-Elgin finals was another really good match.
