Indies and Insanity: January 30, 2020

Tomorrow’s Indie show review will be of Prime Time Pro in Washington, DC.  Since I know most of the people on the show, expect me to enjoy it a lot.  Also, I worked crew for the show, so obviously I already know it’s good.

Basketball report: TNT’s NBA doubleheader is Warriors/Celtics, then Jazz/Nuggets.  ESPN has Louisville/Notre Dame women, followed by Part 1 of a 30 for 30 on Michael Vick.  ESPN2 has a late-start Pac-12 doubleheader with Arizona/Washington, then Colorado/UCLA.  ESPNU goes deep cut with USC Upstate/Presbyterian out of the Big South, Belmont/Tennessee Tech out of the OVC, and UCSB/Northridge out of the Big West.  CBSSN gives you Charleston/James Madison of the Colonial, then a WCC double-header of Pepperdine/BYU and Gonzaga/Santa Clara.  FS1, meanwhile, has Minnesota/Illinois of the Big Ten, followed by Utah/USC of the Pac-12.

Indies are pretty quiet in the US this weekend with the Superb Owl going on, but England has some highlights:

  • EVE gives you the Reign After Queendom from London Saturday night, as Rhia O’Reilly faces Jinny in a non-title match, while tag champs Charlie Evans and Millie McKenzie defend against Gisele Shaw and Sammii Jayne.
  • RPW runs back-to-back.  They’re in Stevenage Saturday night for Raw Deal as Chris Brookes faces Kyle Fletcher, Gisele Shaw takes on Taya Valkyrie (and then races over to EVE in London), and Dan Moloney gets a shot at Rhino.  Sunday, they’re Live At The Cockpit as David Starr defends the big gold against Rampage Brown while Ricky Knight and Robby X are forced to team up against Shota Umino and Michael Oku.
  • Meanwhile, Progress presents a Chapter (#102: Bang Tidy) in Cardiff on Sunday afternoon.  Jordan Devlin and Scotty Davis defend the tag gold against the Anti-Fun Police, Jinny defends the women’s gold in a three-way against Shaw (she’s everywhere this weekend) and Dani Luna, and Cara Noir has an open challenge for the big gold.

Your Indy Match Of The Week is from Maine and Limitless Wrestling, as we have a five-way women’s scramble.  Allie Kat, Ashley Vox, Jody Threat, Masha Slamovich, and Skylar all battle it out… and yeah, the thumbnail gives away interference, what of it?  Watch it anyway.

Bring the insanity!
