My two cents; random thoughts
I have to tell you, this was a great show. Their production is similar to ECW when they were on TNN. The wrestling on this night was amazing. Every match was entertaining. Some of their talent is just incredible. If they take their time and don't make the same mistakes that ECW made they could definitely compete on a lever playing field with WWE. If you have never seen Low Ki and AJ Styles and all the others it is well worth the 10 bucks to check them out.
