  4. All captions this week are so great!

    Man I would love to see this match. Anyone know who Chris Andrews's opponent was and what match this was? And possibly if it's online somewhere?

    1. Eli, kinda OT but on your Tumblr blog you posted a photo on May 30th asking who the two wrestlers pictured are. Not sure about the one in the back but the one writhing in pain looks a lot like Matt Boyce. I haven't seen a video of him wrestling in ages so the photo might be old, not sure. That photo really makes me wish and hope the match was filmed.

    3. You can see additional photos in this album of the entire Adrenaline Rush card. It's probably the closest you'll get to a video experience:

    4. Appreciate the tip JM! It does kinda look like him doesn't it? I wish I could be more certain though I'm glad Boyce is on my radar now too! In case people are wondering, this is the post:

    5. Looking at that photo, I can see why you guys see a resemblance to Boyce.

      I went through his opponents at Cagematch (there are only 15) for a guy with the hint of scruff in the back. I saw a few possibles. But not anyone close enough.

      For a while I thought Chrisjen Hayne, but his hair's too long.

      I think irs still a mystery.

  5. What do you think this is? Sumo?

  6. I wasn't able to confirm this at Cagematch, but this would have be n an encounter I'd like to have seen! The Shark is, according to CM, 2-5 against Griffith.

    1. This is probably the match referred to above. I thought I hat a 2/3 fall win over SG, was impressive, but defeating Bram and him? Wow!

      Main event - Triple threat 1 fall to finish NO-DQ contest - Pride Heavyweight title.

    3. This Cagematch listing contradicts what the PWP reports above. In this case, partly just because I want to, but partly because I've found errors at Cagematch before, I'll trust what the promoter says.

  7. The only video I could find was for a September 2015 tag-team match with them on opposing sides. Andrew's and his partner lost.
