Pass Me The Book! Dominant Wrestling: Dundee


I’ve yet to watch 5 Star Wrestling’s Dominant Wrestling live show in Dundee but I’ve seen some negative reviews online (and some positive) but my main concern was the lack of British talent on tv. Drew Galloway and Nick Aldis being the only Brits on a line up that had a great talent roster who were there to only entertain the fans in attendance before the live show. Here were the talent (bolded the ones on tv):

John Morrison
– Jay Lethal
Rey Mysterio
Carlito
Moose
PJ Black
Nick Aldis
Drew Galloway
– Joe Coffey
– Jimmy Havoc
– Jack Jester
Joe Hendry (as a commentator)
– Kid Fite
– Lou King Sharp
– Zack Gibson
– Irving Garrett
– Deviation
Chris Masters (who wasn’t announced to be coming)


Seven matches filled the televised show with a tournament featuring the 8 men bolded out and sitting here in my armchair I think I could put together a more balanced show with the talent available. Now, I suspect Joe Coffey and Zack Gibson weren’t on the show due to being tied with World of Sport Wrestling, Jay Lethal with Ring of Honor and Jimmy Havoc wasn’t at the show at all so I’ll take out those four and work with the remaining available, I’ll keep Joe Hendry on the commentary table as he has a great voice. So that leaves:

– John Morrison
Jay Lethal
– Rey Mysterio
– Carlito
– Moose
– PJ Black
– Nick Aldis
– Drew Galloway
Joe Coffey
Jimmy Havoc
– Jack Jester
Joe Hendry
– Kid Fite
– Lou King Sharp
Zack Gibson
– Irving Garrett
– Deviation
– Chris Masters


Dark Match – Joe Coffey vs Jay Lethal vs Zack Gibson

5 Star Wrestling Championship Tournament Semi Final – Drew Galloway vs Jack Jester

These two put on decent matches time after time, both Scots and in Dundee that would’ve got the crowd going straight away. Could still have the tournament but make it part of the show, not the whole show.

Kid Fite & Lou King Sharp vs Moose & Carlito

A light tag team match next with the entertaining team of Fite & Sharp against the odd couple of Moose & Carlito. I could see Fite & Sharp have a good bit of banter with their bigger opponents while would make for a fun match to continue the event. Sharp vs Moose especially.

5 Star Wrestling Championship Tournament Semi Final – PJ Black vs Rey Mysterio

The first import vs import match with PJ Black and Rey Mysterio, both high flyers so would put on a bit of a spectuacle for the audience and those at home.

Chris Masters Masterlock Challenge with Lou King Sharp

I would choose this as a bit of light hearted entertainment and establish Lou King Sharp as a cocky and stubborn individual, maybe having lost the earlier tag team match he takes up the Masterlock Challenge to prove he’s the strongest man in professional wrestling and Chris Masters’ Maws favourite wrestler.

Deviation vs Irving Garrett

Establish a big bad monster like Deviation by squashing someone in quick order, that would be Garrett in this situation but he would serve a purpose and make Deviation look like a beast.

5 Star Wrestling Championship Tournament Semi Final – Black/Mysterio vs Galloway/Jester

The winner faces John Morrison for the 5 Star Wrestling Championship, makes the winner come in with plenty support against the Champion. Any scenario would work between these four, with the Galloway vs Mysterio probably being the most preferred to make the most out of Mysterio being on the show.

5 Star Wrestling Championship – Special Referee: Nick Aldis – John Morrison vs Winner Of Tournament

And finally a Championship match to round off the evening. I’d have Nick Aldis as the special referee to create some tension and provide an extra avenue for entertainment. Maybe he gets knocked down by the eventual loser and that sets up a showdown at a future show. Possibilities are endless.


So there would be my Armchair Booking for 5 Star Wrestling’s Dominant Wrestling event. What do you think? Any matches that you would’ve liked to see? Comment below!
