This past April was an exciting one for Morrison fans as he three huge matches. The first was in PWS against Jushin “Thunder” Liger. I was lucky enough to be at this show. It was the first time I’d seen him wrestle live since Survivor Series 2011. Getting to see him wrestle was exciting enough, but my excitement was doubled when I found out he was going to be wrestling Liger. Liger is an absolute legend. I remember watching him in WCW as a kid. It was an honor to get to see him wrestle.
As I mentioned, this was the first time I got to see Morrison in the ring for a while and I’d never seen him wrestle in such a small audience. So, I decided to bring black and yellow streamers to throw during his introduction. The practice of throwing streamers comes from Japan where in some groups, like All Japan, fans throw them during the beginning of high profile matches. A few groups here in the states have adopted the practice, most notably Chikara and ROH. PWS allows it and specifically mentioned it when promoting the event; otherwise I wouldn’t have done it. When we do it here in that states, it has the same meaning as in Japan. It is a way to show respect for your favorite wrestlers and can be used to welcome or welcome back someone as well. I personally like the tradition, although not everyone does, because I think it’s a very visible way to show appreciation as a fan.
Before the match started, Sabu came in and shook both Liger and Morrison’s hands. He ended up staying and watching the match. I’m guessing it’s to set up a future match between Sabu and Liger, Sabu and Morrison, or all three. I thought it was a little distracting and the match really didn’t need it because it was already high profile. In my opinion, it should have been just Morrison and Liger. They could have set up a future Sabu match another way.
The wrestling was mostly mat wrestling based and very submission heavy. I was expecting more high-flying moves, but I’m not complaining. I am a fan of submission wrestling, so I liked what I saw. One of my favorite moments was at about the 9:40 mark where Morrison reversed Liger’s hold by spinning out of it and turning into a near pin. That was really impressive and not something I can remember seeing before. There were other exciting moments. I admit to marking out for the Liger bomb. Also, Liger’s brainbuster was amazing; I can’t decide who does better – him or Generico. The match went about 15 minutes and Morrison won after hitting Starship Pain. It was a good match, but I wish it went longer. I could have watched them wrestle for another 15 minutes.
The night before, Morrison wrestled The Pope at the first PWS Supershow. I haven’t seen too many reviews of it, but I hope to pick up the DVD to write about the match later. I am posting the Liger match here because PWS shared it on social media, but as always, I encourage people to buy the DVD and support independent wrestling.
