Secondly, One of the factors apart from those which you detailed is that they're not the only ones doing the shows with the All-Star cards and when you have shows once in 2 or 3 months,It's not as easy to keep up the All Star stuff if other promotions start to do it as well and some may say,do it better.
Thanks, that's way too nice of you.

Watching Pimpin in High Places. Does Excalibur's commentary ever quit being shit?

What I've learned: Watch all early PWG show's with the commentary turned off. I'm not sure what year they started to be good (maybe once they moved to Reseda permanently?) but their early shows have the WORST commentary ever.

I watched Jason Takes PWG the other night, and it wasn't so bad, not as bad as the other DVDs I own from back then.... but then halfway through it sounded like the guys were getting bored and just started to talk about random stuff. And if they did talk about the match, it was uninteresting and made you want to go to sleep. At one point during a 3 team tag match (I believe it was) one of the guys apologized for the match hitting a "dry spell" with not much going on to call... wtf kind of commentary is that? I get he was trying to be funny, but it just sounded like they were burying the match with the tone he used :?

Anyway.... short story long... I've learned to just turn off the commentary when watching any older shows :)

The commentary sucks until they started recording it live, which I believe was late 2008.

I mean, you really aren't a "made guy" on the indie scene until you work a BOLA.

There is a reason guys drop everything and take less money to work PWG.

pretty sure they used to do it drunk at times. Hence getting worse as the show goes on. At the time people loved the commentary. We had weird tastes in 2005.

Don't wanna be mean or anything cause I don't know him personally and I'm sure he's a nice guy, but this guy seems to have figured out a way to land on the worst possible take on literally every subject related to wrestling in the most stubborn possible way and I am constantly seeing people I follow on Twitter getting dragged into long arguments with him. I don't get it.

Some people love attention and being contrary to popular opinion is a good way to get it

I think that guy decided he was going to be the next Fray (insufferable, constant tweeting, hot takes) a few months ago.
