Просто искам да пусна мълвата за тази доста интересна концепция на Alex Shane (btw един от любимите ми promoter-и/booker-и/talker-и в последните години) и Doug Williams. Прочетете сами за какво става дума :)

Наистина изглежда впечатляващо от където и да го погледнеш поне за европейските стандарти. Любопитно ми е кои кечисти ще представляват съответните промоции, защото това е от огромно значение. В зависимост от участниците вече бих могъл да си извадя по-точни заключения, но за момента трябва да го определя като "обещаващо".

Още не са го пуснали на сайта, но:

Pro Wrestling NOAH and Tod Gordon's Pro Wrestling Unplugged have both been added to the King Of Europe Cup weekender on April 28 and 29, 2006 at the Liverpool Olympia.

In addition, Chris Hero has been confirmed as the representative for Combat Zone Wrestling whilst Davey Richards, by virtue of a quailfying match over Rocky Romero, will represent Pro Wrestling Guerrilla

Това определено ще е интересно! Идеята ми се струва изключително добра! Браво на Alex Shane и Doug Williams, че са се сетили да напряват подобно нещо и още повече, че са се решили да го реализират. Двамата обявени досега кечисти са доста добри и определено заслужават място в подобен турнир. Интересно ми е да разбера кои ще са и останалите участници. Кой ли ще представя ТНА? Според мен най-вероятно е това да е AJ. Представителят на ROH пък съм почти убеден, че ще бъде Bryan Danielson. С другите федерации не съм много добре запознат и нямам никаква представа кои кечисти ще ги представляват.

ууууууууууйеа! Идеята ми допада адски много. Както виждам, вече психарчето Зандиг вече е избрал човек за СZW, честно казано въобще не мога да си представя друг от СZW, който ще представи промоцията по-добре в Европа от Хироу. Сега, такива като Уайфбийтър, да кажем, или самия Зандиг са крайно неподходящи, струва ми се. Засега в сайта са обявени само Сайдал от страна на Иън Ротън и Дейви Ричардс от страна на PWG, очевидно Английската инди сцена издига първи участник в лицето на Мантин Стоун и още няколко човека, от които познавам малцина. Звучи епично, наистина, впрочем не бих отказал участие на Улф Херман от страна на германците, не че го бива много в Европейския стил, но все пак това е Улф Херман, нали така? Ще има и участинци от ТНА, РОХ, направо свалям шапка на Дъг и Шейн, че са се наели да го направят това събитие. Представям си какви сблъсъци ще се получми... this one is awesome:P

Първите обявени мачове са:

Rhino (TNA) vs Nigel McGuiness (ROH)

Chris Hero (CZW) vs Claudio Castagnoli (CHICARA)

Matt Sydal (IWA:MS) vs El Generico (IWS)

Davey Richards (PWG) vs Zebra Kid (WAW)

Аз наскоро проверявах в сайта, но тогава още не беше обявен предтавителят на ТНА. Райно!?! Интересно, ама можеха да направят и по-добър избор. За мен най-добрите варианти бяха AJ Styles, Samoa Joe или Christopher Daniels. Но все пак и така може да се получи нещо интересно. Обявените мачове ме заинтригуваха.

Страхотен избор за първи 4 мача от турнира.Първите три мача съм сигурен,че ще са страхотни и ако на Hero и на Claudio им дадат достатъчно време могат да направят един същевременно много добър и забавен мач.Противника на Davey Richards за първи път го чувам,но да се надяваме,че и той ще се справи добре.

Тези звезди тук не са ми чак толкова познати, а някои въобще не съм ги чувал. Само от първия мач съм запознат и с двамата участника и мисля, че ще е добър. Надявам се и другите да са такива.

Резултати от снощи и схема за днес:

1) Chris Hero defeated Claudio Castagnoli in 15 minutes, after a fisherman’s suplex. Both guys played babyface, which was kind of weird. It started off slowly, but the crowd were into this by the end. I hate to say this, but the highlight of the match was Hero suplexing Castagnoli and inadvertently breaking the ring. This wasn’t quite the Brock Lesnar/Big Show spot from years ago, but it caused a noticeable dip in the ring, with one part of the ring becoming very saggy. It also resulted in another 10 minute delay to the show after this match whilst they fixed the ring.

2) Go Shiozaki defeated Martin Stone in around 20 minutes of a good match. Shiozaki had grown out his hair since the last time I saw him in person, at the ROH show last August. Stone is an up and coming British wrestler for RQW (Real Quality Wrestling), and looked good in this match. Shiozaki pinned Stone after a brainbuster.

3) Pac defeated Trent Acid in a very good spotfest match. Acid came out to the Midnight Express’ old theme music, which was kind of cool. Acid played heel, and Pac was already a big crowd favourite stemming from his great ROH performances in the same building last month, so this match had great heat. Tons of innovative spots involving chairs. Acid got a near fall by giving Pac a jackhammer on two chairs that had been set up in the ring. Pac won the match with a top rope corkscrew somersault splash. Both guys received a standing ovation afterwards.

4) Matt Sydal defeated El Generico in a good comedy match. El Generico was a masked wrestler doing a Spanish/Mexican ‘Delirious’ gimmick. In fact this whole match was very similar to the Sydal-Delirious ROH match they had last month in the same building. Sydal and Generico did a lot of comedy spots early on in the match, trying to avoid an invisible table in the ring. It was weird, but kind of funny too. Sydal won with a shooting star press. Intermission followed.

5) Doug Williams defeated Ares in a somewhat boring match. Ares wrestles for WXW, a German indy promotion. He’s also one half of the ‘Swiss Money Holding’ tag team with Castagnoli, and came to the ring wearing a suit and tie and carrying a briefcase. Williams tried to do some comedy spots early on, but it just fell flat. After 15 minutes, Williams eventually won with a roll up. Not one of Williams better matches, but I think this was more due to the calibre of his opponent than anything else.

6) Davey Richards defeated Zebra Kid via Fujiwara armbar submission in a great match. Zebra Kid is a British indy wrestler and was very impressive here. Both guys brawled through the crowds, and Zebra Kid dove off a balcony on to Richards, putting Richards through a merchandise table. This was an entertaining match. Despite Richards playing heel, a lot of the crowd cheered him. Both guys received a standing ovation after the match, with a loud ‘Thank You Zebra’ chant.

7) Ryo Saito defeated Jodie Fleisch following a belly to back suplex. This was an entertaining match, with lots of high flying moves. Crowd were somewhat distracted at the finish by some rowdy 1PW fans getting ejected and it took away from the match. Saito winning actually started a fight in the crowd, as Fleisch’s vocal supporters took offence to many popping for Saito’s win. KOE Promoter Alex Shane was quickly on the scene and ejected the rowdy fans.

8) In the main event, Nigel McGuiness (ROH) pinned Rhino (TNA) in a great match. The first fans’ chant of the match was ‘Fire Russo’. Rhino just stared at the crowd. Crowd support was 50-50 for both guys at the start, but this quickly became 70-30 in McGuiness’ favour and Rhino picked up on this and began acting heelish. Very small TNA chants were occasionally started, but they were quickly drowned out with boos and ROH chants. TNA is definitely the John Cena of wrestling promotions, at least in the eyes of the fans that were in attendance tonight. Both guys brawled through the crowd and up into the middle balcony (where I was sat). McGuiness ended up throwing Rhino over the balcony edge and he took a big bump through the merchandise tables, landing on a ton of TNA and ROH DVDs that were being sold. You’d think they’d have took the hint after Richards table bump earlier and moved all the DVDs out of the way before this match. I’ve written this in the past, but when you are literally inches away from a guy falling off a Balcony and taking a 15-20 feet drop through a table, it blows your mind. Both guys also did some spots involving a ladder as well during this. Finish of the match came in the ring, when Rhino missed a gore, and McGuiness gave him a big Lariat clothesline to pick up the win. Huge crowd pop for the finish. This was a very heated match. Afterwards, McGuiness paid tribute to Rhino, who accepted his handshake and both guys received a big ovation.

KOE Quarter Final matches:

- Chris Hero vs Doug Williams

- Go Shiozaki vs Davey Richards

- Matt Sydal vs Ryo Saito

- Pac vs Nigel McGuiness

KOE Semi Final matches:

- Chris Hero or Doug Williams vs Matt Sydal or Ryo Saito (1)

Като цяло шоуто ми изглежда добро. Само глупавото счупване на ринга по време на мача на Hero и Castagnoli и слабият мач между Doug Williams и Ares ми направиха лошо впечатление. Всички останали мачове са били на ниво. Е, chant-а "Fire Russo" на шоу, с което Русо няма нищо общо, ми се струва доста глупав, ама както и да е.

Шоуто май е било доста добро и явно всички мачове с изключение на този на Doug Williams са били добри.Не очаквах Rhino да отпадне толкова рано в турнира,но все пак Nigel ми е един от фаворитите и мисля,че е с голям шанс за победа.Така като гледам как се развиват нещата най-вероятния финал ми изглежда Chris Hero or Doug Williams vs. Nigel,но все пак ще видим как ще се развият нещата.Нямам търпение да гледам шоутата!

Все пак турнира е в UK,напълно закономерно е Nigel да победи Rhino,а и не съм се надявал на друго след като бях леко разочарован от избора той да представя TNA,не знам TNA ли са го изпратили или организаторите са го избрали.Иначе от report-a става ясно,че всички мачове са били от добри нагоре,с изключение мача на Doug Williams.Относно крайния победител съм почти сигурен,че ще е британец,интересно само дали ще бутнат PAC към финала,за когото се чува,че е по-добър high flyer от Jack Evans.

Edit:Ето и подробен report от Night 2

by Stephen Lyon

I attended night two of the ‘King of Europe Cup 2007’ tournament at the Liverpool Olympia, Liverpool, England, and thought I'd send you a report. Tonight’s event featured the quarter finals, semi-finals and final match of the King of Europe tournament, as well as an elimination six man tag team match.

The attendance appeared to be up on the previous night, so I’d estimate it was in the 800-900 range. I neglected to mention in yesterday’s report that there was a very nice entrance set and ramp used, as well as two video screens showing the live action. Both shows were taped for DVD and also for future broadcast on the TWC Fight channel in the U.K.

1) In the first quarter-final match, Doug Williams defeated Chris Hero in 20 minutes, in a decent opener. Both guys wrestled as babyfaces, and the match started quite slowly, so it wasn’t very heated early on. They started off doing some mat wrestling, but eventually increased the pace and it developed into a good match. Williams won with a small package. Hero took the mic and praised Williams afterwards, but Williams blew him off.

2) In the second quarter-final match, Nigel McGuiness defeated Pac to advance. Pac came out with his head bandaged, apparently hurt. McGuiness gave Pac the option of forfeiting the match, as he warned him that he might severely injure him, but Pac declined and the match was on. Similar to the first match, both guys were babyfaces here. This was a good match, with lots of high impact moves. At one point Pac did a great tope through the ropes, on to McGuiness on the outside. McGuiness began to dominate the contest, and after 3 lariats resulted in near falls, McGuiness eventually gave Pac a sick-looking diamond cutter from the top rope for the pinfall. Afterwards, a bunch of referees and McGuiness showed concern for Pac’s well-being, but he was okay enough to walk to the back under his own power.

3) In the third quarter-final match, Davey Richards defeated Go Shiozaki in an entertaining match. Richards was a heel here, despite him receiving a lot of cheers. Shiozaki delivered a lot of stiff kicks and chops to Richards early in the match, and at one point clotheslined Richards over the guardrail and into the first row at ringside. Back in the ring, Richards did a corkscrew splash from the top rope for a near fall, before pinning Shiozaki after a top rope Tornado DDT, that he managed to turn into an armbar submission hold for the victory. The finish of this match looked excellent.

4) In the fourth and final quarter-final match, Matt Sydal defeated Ryo Saito. This was an entertaining, high flying contest. Sydal won this match after around 15 minutes of action following a Shooting Star Press. Intermission followed.

5) In the first semi-final match, Nigel McGuiness defeated Davey Richards in an excellent match. Richards attacked McGuiness straight away to start the match, diving through the ropes and on to McGuiness on the outside. They brawled through the crowd briefly, with McGuiness placing Richards on a merchandise table (empty this time, unlike last night), and nailing him with a couple of chair shots. Back in the ring, after a Richards springboard elbow got a near fall, McGuiness eventually won after a lariat clothesline. This match was only 10 minutes in length, but it was all action.

6) In the second semi-final match, Doug Williams defeated Matt Sydal in a quick-paced match. Similar to how Richards started his match with McGuiness, Williams attacked Sydal immediately upon his entering the ring. These two worked very smoothly together and they put together an entertaining match. Finish came when Sydal missed a shooting star press, and then moonsaulted on to Williams’ raised knees. Williams then cradled him for the pinfall.

7) In a complete change of pace, it was time for an unadvertised bonus match. In a six man elimination match, the team of Martin Stone & El Generico & Atsushi Aoki (Pro Wrestling Noah undercard rookie, I believe) defeated Trent Acid & Claudio Castagnoli & Ares in around 30 minutes. This was a wild brawl, with all six wrestlers taking the action into the crowd. At one point, Stone & Generico & Aoki combined to simultaneous suplex the heels on to the wooden floor. First elimination saw Aoki make Trent Acid submit to an armbar at the 15 minute stage. Second elimination saw Castagnoli & Ares combine to eliminate Atsushi Aoki with a double team backbreaker. Third elimination saw Castagnoli pin El Generico after a screwed up Tornado DDT attempt, at the 25 minute mark. Fourth elimination saw Martin Stone pin Ares after a clothesline. The final elimination came when Stone pinned Castagnoli after a DDT. This was a good match, if a little long.

Before the main event, they brought out long-time British wrestling promoter Brian Dixon, paying tribute to him. He’s from the Liverpool area, and has been running his All-Star Wrestling promotion for the last 30 years. He’s been credited by many for keeping British wrestling alive after it was cancelled by ITV back in 1988. He was there to present the King of Europe trophy to the winner of the tournament final.

8) In the main event, Nigel McGuiness defeated Doug Williams in the King of Europe tournament final. This was a very good match. They started off brawling in the crowd. Williams was the major heel here and crowd was totally into McGuiness. Williams got a nearfall after a top rope kneedrop. They traded a lot of stiff punches. The finish was very WWE-esque, but it worked well. McGuiness accidentally took out referee Steve Lynskey with a clothesline. A second referee ran in and was about to count a McGuiness pinfall when first referee Lynskey stopped him, insisting he was ref. Lynskey then turned heel by knocking down the second ref. McGuiness squared up to Lynskey, before headbutting him. McGuiness then pinned Williams after another big lariat, with the second referee reviving to count the pinfall. On paper it sounds a bit overbooked, but it added drama to the match and worked really well. I also think this was partly because nothing like this had been booked in any of the other match finishes over the course of both nights, so maybe that’s why it worked so well.

After the match, all the wrestlers on the card came out and climbed into the ring. Brian Dixon delivered a speech, praising the wrestlers for their efforts over the weekend. He then presented Nigel McGuiness with the inaugural King of Europe trophy. McGuiness delivered a short acceptance speech, paying tribute to the rest of the wrestlers on the card, the fans in attendance and also promoter Alex Shane, who was the organiser behind the whole two day event.

In conclusion, these were two very good wrestling shows. It was a well booked tournament, and every wrestler worked very hard. Hopefully this will become an annual tournament. I believe this crew of wrestlers are now headed to Germany for a three day event at the Musikpalette in Essen, Germany, May 4th to 6th next weekend.
