If you’re a fan of independent wrestling in southern California and would like to go beyond just PWG then this page is for you. The channel features a bunch of talent either from southern California or based in the area. All of the footage on the page is over seven months old, but still fairly recent. Also, there is more Joey Ryan featured than you can shake a stick at. In fact, there is so much Joey Ryan footage available on this channel he gets to showcase a plethora of emotions from the comical to the far more serious. There are plenty of long and good in-ring quality matches featured on this channel with commentary and footage from multiple cameras. One of the only real problems with the quality of the videos is that some of the actual footage can be a little tough to make out. It looks like not the best cameras were used given the settings of the matches, which makes some clips a bit dark.
A recommended clip:
Joey Ryan vs. Vintage Dragon
Joey Ryan comes out to music by EMF and one can’t help but expect this match to be “Unbelievable.” Yes, I know, how corny of me. Anyway, the match is for the WCWC Heavyweight Championship and Joey does plenty of posing with the belt before the action begins. When the bell rings Joey puts a headlock on Vintage Dragon, but it doesn’t stay that way for long. Arm drags are traded at a breakneck speed, but both wrestlers keep getting up. These guys must be big Ricky Steamboat fans!
Throughout the performance Dragon uses a variety of high speed moves including a hurricanrana, a flying blockbuster and in between the two hits what looks to be a hurricanrana, but turns into Ryan just getting planted on his face. Meanwhile, Ryan has a more mat-based style for this encounter and tries to slow things down. For the finish Dragon attempts to roll Ryan up after a sunset flip, but Joey manages to get out of it. Before Vintage can come to his feet, Ryan hits some sweet chin music on his opponent and gets the win.
After the match Dragon and Ryan give interviews. Dragon talks about how he isn’t over (no, not that way, he means he still has more to offer!) while Ryan says that he underestimated Dragon.
