imnotbooked said:Buffalo,NY is filled with 'em. By far the worst is called OSPW (Old School Pro Wrestling).
Now I can watch almost anything related to wrestling. I can watch Ken't Jones ramble on for 15 minutes about anything, I can watch Bulldog's Bizarre promo 20 times in a row, I can even watch a huging Viscera match, but for the life of me, I cannot stand to watch more than 20 seconds of their "TV Show".
It is by far the most poorly filmed wrestling show. For god sakes, I have tapes of Antonino Rocco from the 50's that are better quality.
When I flip it on. I literally want to take a fork to my eyes, rip them out of my head, put a little Arby's Sauce on them and eat 'em up.
It is that bad.
Check out thier website:
It looks like it is straight out of 1999.
i actually went to one of these shows over the summer and it was the worst show ive ever been to. I have gone to some really really bad indy shows and have had the best time of my life. Some are so bad that you can really get into the matches and really interact with the wrestlers (as most of the crowd just sits there). There was one fed i used to go to in Niagara Falls Canada called NSPW that featured everyones hero Show Time Eric Young. He was pretty much the cool top babyface and really had some great matches. I remember one time he had a ladder match against another really good wrestler Danger Boy Derek Wylde that ended with Showtime using a top rope Death Valley driver through a table on the floor very intense and the match was great. The fed also had Sean Spears who is in Dsw or OVW along with an appearance by Jerry Lawler.
But that OSPW was just awful it was as said before a bunch of older out of shape D rate wrestlers. They had this feud with another local promotion maybe forty five minutes away that seemed like a fed that is run by a training school. The kids in that fed all seemed to come off as "there young. they seem to be trying and want to be here... so why am i suppose to boo them" (it reminded me of the Young Blood vs Millionare Clubs in wcw. why do i boo the young the hungry kids and cheer the old men). Needless to say it was awful including one guy named Al Jahid. A tanned white guy who claimed he was from Iraq, wore an a shirt from the evil satanic American company Nike, who used such finishers as the "Box Cutter" and made his wrestling debut on 9-11-01.
What really killed it was they had commentary for the show played over the PA system. Which is the worst thing in the world you can yell or insult wrestlers, cheer for the guys you like, boo the guys the don't because THEY COULD HEAR US over the awful commentary. And it wasn't like they were good commentators calling the action calling the moves... no they were too busy arguing over which federation was better almost ignoring all the action unless their guy was in control. The heels finally took over the announce table who were a few young wrestlers calling a match featuring only their guys (which was easily the best match on the card. pretty much a spot fest but i actually got excited) . They actually were calling moves and trying to put over their wrestlers not the awful feud between the feds.
This show was so bad we stayed maybe halfway i have never left a show early before.
