    Obscure Independent Wrestling Thread

    So there are more indy promotions out there than you can shake a stick at, and occasionally I run across stuff that doesn't seem to fit anywhere else, so might as well start this thread and see if anyone has any local/super under the radar stuff to talk about! Here's what I saw lately:

    Gino Rivera vs. Manny Lemons, DWO Full Access Championship 2/24/18 DWO Pain Rising



    This is a single cam shot with a roving ringside handheld camera, so you can't expect tremendous video quality, but all the action is captured reasonably well. I've certainly seen worse production values! Anything to get the footage out there, I say. They establish really well early on that Rivera is the heel and Lemons the beloved face, and the crowd, though small, reacts appropriately, which always warms my heart. Gino seems to be quite good in his role, nicely stalling or trying to take shortcuts. Lemons is a bit nondescript but with a bit of charisma to his name, and while I can't say the wrestling was especially notable in terms of "work-rate", they executed a simple story well and kept the crowd engaged. A perfectly solid match, if both guys continue wrestling I think we could hear more of them in the future as they continue to improve.

    Might as well post one of my old favorites. A long time ago, I use to be in the Minnesota Indy scene. Here is Arik Cannon, which is funny to watch this match because Stevie Fierce is now the cocky young heel, back when I went to 1st Ave every month to watch the indy show, Cannon was the young cocky heel who pissed off the fans. It's the circle of life... LOL

    Always thought Cannon could have been a breakout indy guy in the 00s more than he was. Not at all sad to add this match to my list, should be a good watch!
