In the 1950s, Boston pro-wrestling Godfather Paul Bowser produced weekly-TV programming out of WBZ-TV called "Bedlam in Boston". In 1982, Killer Kowalski and his IWF put together a Sunday morning show on WXNE-TV called "Bedlam in Boston". In 2010, BCCW proudly brought "Bedlam in Boston" back to the forefront of public conciousness. To this day, the BCCW supershow "Bedlam in Boston" remains our signature event and rivals even the greats like Wrestlemania, Starrcade or the Super Bowl. Tonight you will bear witness to the crown jewel of Mash-Up Wrestling. A veritable smorgasbord of Fight-Fiction Dream Matches that span the generations. Ringside seats in euphoria! Welcome to Boston, the sports capital of America! We are BCCW and this is "Bedlam in Boston!!"
** BCCW has 6 recognized championships ** Heavyweight (225 lbs +) Middleweight (205 lbs +) Flyweight (under 200 lbs) Television title (catch weight) 6-Man Tag Team titles Woman's Championship
** All matches sanctioned by Mash-Up Wrestling. **
Since debuting full-time as a professional wrestler in 2018, Ronda Rousey has enjoyed a rookie ride similar to Kurt Angle or Goldberg. Every moment is memorable and every match has a big-fight feel. Combining the heritage and legacy of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper with MMA aesthetics, Ronda has earned the moniker "baddest women on the planet". She is the female version of Mike Tyson 1988. But this is Mash-Up Wrestling, and one cursory glance through the dungeons of grappling history reveals Ronda is far from the first to be considered most formidable. One of these monsters of Wrestling's past comes in the form of giant MONSTER RIPPER! The mysterious face-painted savage with exotic offense and International infamy! Imagine a cross between Nia Jax and Umaga! In 2018 (the age of Rousey) the world is just now talking about Intergender matches. But Monster Ripper 1991 is already fresh off her WWC 18th Anniversary Show victory over the Male wrestler El Profe! Ripper clearly has the size advantage (think: Ronda's battles with Nia Jax) but Rousey is still able to toss her with ease using skill & leverage. Monster powers out of most submission attempts but withers beneath a relentless striking assault. In the end, Rousey maneuvers out of a running powerbomb attempt from Monster Ripper to sink her massive opponent with the dreaded cross-armbreaker! Ripper must TAP or SNAP and she chooses TAP OUT!! Mark one for the good guys!
Winner (via submission): RONDA ROUSEY (2018)

Sting (1997) def. "Broken" Matt Hardy (2017) [Heavyweight Grudge Match]
BCCW Cannon: The storyline evolution of Sting/Matt Hardy/Bray Wyatt are intricately intertwined. It was the same twisted belief (and haunting visions) of a dark Sting "savior" that consumed Bray Wyatt & Matt Hardy (just from different angles). While like a modern-day God, Sting ignored the pleas of mortals. This "Great War" between Wyatt Family & Hardy Compound consumed BCCW for much of the human calendar-year "2017". Meanwhile, the visions of Sting were true - he did indeed debut for BCCW, but it was as the bleached-blond WCW surfer-era Sting. The feud between Hardyz & Wyattz raged until the unthinkable occurred - they joined forces! Long before WWE showcased the same union, BCCW prophesied this Tag Team on our own stage. As a result of their climatic battle at "Bedlam in Boston 2017" [click here] - circumstances conspired to have Matt become WOKEN and Wyatt one of his disciples. Together with the newly-christened "Brother Nero" (Jeff Hardy) these three united to win BCCW 6-Man Tag Team Championship gold at "Remembrance".[click here] But all things came full circle again - when CROW STING re-emerged in BCCW (the result of a summoning by Undertaker) and rose up against the Broken Wyatt union for good. The absolute WARS between the Broken Wyatt Clan (Matt/Bray/Jeff) and the "Brothers of Destiny" (Taker/Kane/Crow Sting) over the BCCW 6-Man Tag Team straps will be remembered forever. Eventually the stress of those battles fractured the delicate synergy between Matt & Bray for good - and Matt Hardy defeated Bray Wyatt in climatic fashion in an "Ultimate Deletion" match at "Fall Out Festival 2018" (click here). Since then, "Woken" Matt Hardy has spent the last few months haunting the fringes of the BCCW Heavyweight division and spouting his divine nonsense about the "ultimate damnation" of Sting. These callouts / flashbacks / Lucha Underground-esque vignettes have driven Sting to response - and here we stand tonight - a Heavyweight Dream Match with a weighty backdrop.
MASH-UP WRESTLING ANALYSIS: Sting exudes a chilling supernatural aura that originated in the dark recesses & balmy alcoves of arenas nationwide during the rise of NWO (and the ultimate eternal damnation of wrestling fandom). 1997 Sting is in mourning - not only for the sport & his place in the game, but for the death of innocence in pro wrestling fans. Once the Attitude Era was fully upon us, the *FANS* themselves turned heel and we haven't looked back since. Now right is wrong, to heel is to be a babyface and "bad" is always "good". So old carefree surfer Sting was slain and Crow Sting was reborn in his place. These same twisted truths that corrupted Sting into this darkened anti-hero also spoke through the eons to others - driving them insane with despair. Namely, Matt Hardy who professed to have become "WOKEN" when in fact radiates the same intense madness that drove Sting into his cold, calloused grave. The problem with Matt Hardy is he's *just* crazy enough to believe his own prophecies, which in turn strengthens him beyond normal means. So together, Woken Matt Hardy and Sting meet on the peripheral of mere mortal realms. The battle between them is intense, but the psychological aspect takes precedence over insane bumps & mindless spots. Woken Matt has been driven to insanity in his quest to defeat STING and all he stands for, yet nothing he does can completely extinguish the small spark of life left inside Sting. That tiny bit of HOPE. When Matt finally realizes this through the course of their battle, he truly becomes "broken" - and easy fodder for a climatic Scorpion Death Drop for the finish! Crow Sting perseveres to prove there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark & treacherous the route may be!
-- CUT BACKSTAGE --
-- The entire storyline swirling around BCCW at this time (once again) involves Owner & GM Stephanie McMahon (no surprise). Stephanie's attempt to usurp BCCW from her brother Shane & President Paul Bowser was successful (see last years BIB Supershow (click here)), and now she concentrates her full evil intentions upon the WORLD Championship's of Mash-Up Wrestling. *THE* most important titles in ALL of this great sport due to their history & lineage. The WORLD Championship's of Mash-Up Wrestling literally represent ALL the championships of wrestling history - past & present. Currently the WORLD Championship resides in the mighty hands of Braun Strowman (2018) who Stephanie has sworn to see destroyed. But in order to take down a MONSTER - Stephanie McMahon will need an ARMY of men. This regime includes stalwarts like Commissioner JBL, BCCW Television Champion EC3, and the Destroyer of WCW, Kevin Nash... or so Stephanie *thinks*. "Diesel" came back to BCCW strictly on the take - bought for his appearances and tasked with the sole duty of protecting Television Champion EC3. Nash earned the undying ire of purists when he literally sold his Television title to EC3 for compensation. But now, Nash is up on a contract year and looking to raise his value exponentially. So Nash teased Stephanie with a business card for a mysterious 3rd party investor looking to buy in. Then Nash united with his "clique" brethren for one-night-only at "Scene of the Crime", setting the Mash-Up Wrestling Universe atwitter. All the while Nash raises his stock in the ring by feuding with those he considers "vanilla midgets" accused of "killing the business". But what business is Big Sexy really all about? The cold-hard cash & security (yet relative anonymity) of being another 7-foot soldier in Stephanie's goon squad? Or the outlandish free-for-all life of DX/NWO rockstars? Nash hasn't committed to either side yet, preferring the role of tweener for now. But tonight, Stephanie McMahon has issued an ultimatum - and the real Kevin Nash must stand up. Or be counted out for good. To be continued... --
Kevin Nash (1998) def. Low-Ki (2006) [Catchweight Bout]
Classic "David vs. Goliath" match-up with many Mash-Up twists. '98 Nash is WCW-killer at the top of his game - ending Undefeated streaks, throwing little muthaphuckkas into trailers like a javelin, and eating up all the "too cool for school" anti-societal sentiment. With no time for "vanilla midgets", Nash got into this feud with his usual sarcastic wit & banter. Nash is "work" personified. At least until he met "workrate" on this timeline, and ate one shoot-kick too many from entirely way-too-serious Ronin of Pro-Wrestling, Low-Ki. Then Nash stopped taking the 174lb former 3x BCCW Flyweight Champion so lightly! That one bloody lip from an Episode of BCCW building to this encounter jump-started a chain of actions that saw Nash lose his cool and Low-Ki taunt him like Conor McGregor with Darth Vader's voice. Their match-up tonight rides a crescendo of violence & emotion. For hardcore UFC buffs, look no further than Marco Ruas vs. Paul Varelans. In the grip of Kevin Nash, Low-Ki would be no match - so in order to create space & distance, Low-Ki relies on his space-age striking. Particularly the leg kicks that Nash is wont to endure, and tries to no-sell as much as he can. Until he can't anymore. Eventually, Low-Ki's prodigious striking output overcomes the plodding (yet high-impact) Heavyweight style of Nash and Big Daddy Cool crumbles to the canvas, where Low-Ki has his way with him on the mat. But once again the over-arching angle comes into play here - Nash is just too damn *big* for Low-Ki to have any kind of sustained success. Nash powers out of submissions again and again, until finally catching Low-Ki in a massive POWERBOMB counter off an arm-scissors attempt! Even a hobbled, winded Nash can hurl Low-Ki around like a frisbee once he actually gets his hands on him (Plus '98 Nash ain't doing the J-O-B for nobody, son!!) Low-Ki proves for certain that Flyweights can tangle with Super-Heavyweights in a competitive bout, but the end is Chokeslam/Jack-Knife city for Low-Ki. Goodnight. Smarks flock to your computer screens with tears of bitter anger in your eyes.
Winner: KEVIN NASH (1998)
-- commentator recap & summary / Nash refuses to speak in his postfight interview, but EC3 approaches and reminds ("warns?") Nash that the time has come to do his job... to be continued!! --
The pomp & circumstance of EC3 vs the machismo & swagger of the original "Bad Guy", Razor Ramon. The Internet vignettes & dueling promos between these guys in the weeks leading up to this bout were absolutely magnificent. It's all about da GOLD tonight and both guys bring the heat in pursuit. Heavyweight Dream Match gives way to BCCW storyline-fodder, when the inevitable Kevin Nash sighting occurs mid-match. For the most part Nash is a solemn detached observer, as commentators Solie & MSD question his allegiances. Is it to the dollar or to friendship? The answer finally comes to the fans waiting with bated breath, as Nash orchestrates an elaborate SWERVE that results in EC3 getting BASHED in the face with his own title belt and pinned by Razor Ramon! *NEW* Television champion! HUGE pop for that, as Diesel & Razor Ramon unite in the ring amid great fanfare & confetti (that was meant for EC3's victory parade!!) We have a NEW Champion! But the big story is Nash's decision to forsake Stephanie for his own clique! But that choice comes with immediate ramifications, as Stephanie shows up at the top of the ramp with security & off-duty police officers - attempting to have Hall & Nash arrested! Instead - the new TV Champion and his 7-foot accomplice "steal" the Television title belt and flee through the impenetrable wall of fans! The lasting image is of a defiant Hall & Nash - amid thousands of drunk rowdy revelers - giving the middler finger / crotch-chop salute to an IRATE Stephanie McMahon in the ring! Hall & Nash escape through the back door of the arena with fans cheering them on the entire time! EC3 can't believe it!
Winner (and *NEW* Television Champion): RAZOR RAMON
-- cut to stunned commentator recap & summary - cameras catch up with Stephanie McMahon who swears vengeance upon Nash and his little "clique" for his betrayal! --
Roman Reigns (2014) def. JBL (2004) [Loser Leaves BCCW Bout]
Brutal exclamation point to a Heavyweight Dream Feud that's been raging in BCCW for months. Once upon a time in BCCW canon, Roman Reigns was Stephanie's chosen figurehead. But after failing to capture the Mash-Up Wrestling WORLD Championship, Reigns wrought the wrath of Stephanie McMahon - and earned the sympathy of fans. Reigns returned to BCCW after a brief absence to target Stephanie's regime for destruction - and the fans suddenly roared their approval (think "WWE Royal Rumble 2014"). Right now, Reigns is balancing on the razor's edge of fan appeal. One wrong move and he can veer off into utter disdain. So who better to solidify Reign's appeal as the fans "chosen one" than heel mastermind JBL? The foul-mouthed Texan who is such a bully (especially when given special privileges; like say a Cabinet or "Commissioner" position) he could turn the Grinch babyface. For months JBL attempted to torment Reigns, even coming up on the bloody losing-end of their "Bullrope" match at "Scene of the Crime". Tonight these two hosses collide for the last time - vindication for Reigns or validation for JBL. In the end, a familiar formula emerges - and JBL falls to the climatic "Spear / Superman Punch" combo! 1! 2! 3! JBL has literally had his own ticket punched right out of BCCW! Fans sing the "nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye!" song! JBL is distraught and in near-tears! Somewhere backstage, BCCW Owner & GM Stephanie McMahon is throwing a fit & destroying her office! Meanwhile the fans rejoice with their chosen one - the obstinate hero Roman Reigns - in his proud & defiant BCCW victory! What's next for the Big Dog in BCCW? Stephanie McMahon's world continues to crumble! Only a HELL of her own creation awaits her!
Winner: ROMAN REIGNS (2014)
-- Cut 2 commentator reaction & summary / Video package summarizing AJ Styles / HBK rivalry in BCCW / Promo from Champion AJ Styles --
Dream Match of Epic proportions. These guys were supposed to face off nearly a year ago, but HBK "lost his smile" in Lowell MA and thus vacated his Middleweight Championship. AJ Styles eventually won the belt, but some fans were upset he never got his "win back" over HBK. Cynics would blame politics & HBK's refusal to play ball (jealousy perhaps?), but AJ Styles went on to great Middleweight Championship glory while HBK began his slow climb back. HBK even won the BCCW "Money-in-the-Bank" ladder match at "City of Champions 2018", guaranteeing him a title match whenever he so chooses. But the *FANS* chose this match - and with the money being right on both sides - the contract was finally signed. Here it is - Khabib vs. Ferguson in the flesh, finally ready to happen. Only in BCCW! These two write a scintillating mat / aerial encounter that cannot be summarized in mere words or imagery. You must really close your 3rd eye and envision the technical masterpiece between these two. It's almost like a palpable anger exists between the two, driving them to competitively push themselves to the absolute limit. Like they're trying to *outwork* the other. The fans are taken on a roller-coaster of emotion, especially in the final sequence that sees multiple near-falls and close finishes! But in the end, AJ Styles counters a "Sweet Chin Music" attempt into a Calf-Slicer and forces HBK to submit! The fans roar their approval while a vicious subset mocks HBK with "YOU TAPPED OUT!" chants! AJ Styles retains his Middleweight Championship in a 6-Star bout! AJ Styles (and the fans) want a handshake of mutual respect, but HBK is reluctant! HBK's natural arrogance & emotion is clouding his reasoning! HBK *walks away* from the handshake of respect!
Winner (and *STILL* Middleweight Champion): AJ STYLES!
--- B-b-b-b-BUT WAIT! After HBK angrily stomps up the Entrance Ramp - leaving AJ Styles alone in the ring to celebrate his victory - there is a massive disturbance from the crowd...! OH MY! Enter the OUTSIDERS (Kevin Nash & Scott Hall) again! Kicking in the arena doors - coming through the crowd - and jumping the ringside barricades to bomb the ring! Here - in vicious heel fashion, Hall & Nash JUMP AJ Styles and beat him down gangland-style!! WTF! The fans quickly turn on Nash & Hall, who they were cheering for an hour ago, throwing trash into the ring and serenading them with boos! Nonetheless - Nash & Hall lay Styles out (RAZORS EDGE! POWERBOMB!) before security can capture them and flee the building again! All the while, HBK watches on... thinks about it... grabs his "Money-in-the-Bank" briefcase - and CASHES IT IN! The fans are going apoplectic as the ramifications of this set-up come to fruition! HBK ascends the ring ropes and CRUSHES a prone AJ Styles with a pinpoint elbow drop! NO! Not like this! 1!.. 2!.. 3!! HBK has stolen the Middleweight title back from AJ Styles - with more than a little help from his friends! HBK had NO IDEA that was going to happen, as he repeats to Renee Young (and Stephanie McMahon in the back later) - just like HBK had NO IDEA Montreal was going to happen! He just cashed in on an opportunity! Irregardless - we have a new Middleweight champion tonight at "Bedlam in Boston!"
Former 8x BCCW HW Champion and ex-WORLD Champion John Cena (2018) receives the honors this year, in recognition of his tour of duty throughout Mash-Up Wrestling history & beyond. Cena has stayed true to his word of a "Loser Leaves BCCW" match, and hasn't competed since suffering that defeat (see "Halloween in Hell 2017"). But in one good old fashioned "unsanctioned" throwback encounter, fans get to see Cena in action one more time - as he is rudely interrupted by Canadian Outlaw Kevin FN Owens (no doubt emboldened by his hero & leader Bret Hart's tyrannical reign over the BCCW Heavyweight division as of late). Owens is piping hot on the stick leaving Cena no choice but to FIGHT or be FORGOTTEN! We get an impromptu "bout" between the two that is more Attitude-era brawl than organized matwork. Nonetheless, the fans go bonkers for the action and Cena get his crowd-pleasing swan song in front of a BCCW audience in Boston MA! Where Cena shows up next in the Mash-Up Wrestling universe is anybody's guess... but wherever Cena goes he'll be doing it as a certified Hall of Famer!
"Winner": JOHN CENA
-- CUT TO PROMOS / VIDEO PACKAGE --
Back to WORLD Championships. If Stephanie McMahon couldn't fully manipulate *THE* richest prize in the game (Mash-Up Wrestling WORLD Championship), then bygawd she would steal a page from her old mans playbook and *MAKE HER OWN*. Hence, Stephanie's involvement as the "figure-head" of a new Women's Evolution in Mash-Up Wrestling. In actuality she is piggybacking off a natural sentiment and seizing the opportunity to put her imprint in the final DNA. Stephanie's Mash-Up Wrestling rivalry with Chyna is a long and deeply-personal one, wrought with anger & betrayal. Stephanie wants to use her BCCW platform to push the Women's Championship to the next level, but she needs a real champion she can trust first. So Stephanie used her connections to import Charlotte Flair to BCCW and the rest is history. If anybody has a chance in hell of dethroning the real-life Xena for her Championship belt, it's the original Nature Girl. Proceed with caution...
Who is the single Greatest Female Wrestler of All Time? That is the type of loaded question that can only be answered using Mash-Up Wrestling mathematics. It takes process of elimination, like an entire MMA weight class division getting cleaned out. One-by-bloody-freaking-one, in glorious battle again & again. Thus was the road faced by both women; in entirely different timelines but captured forever on the very same wavelength. Chyna has been a centerpiece of the Mash-Up Wrestling universe since her debut as a bodyguard - all the way through her ultimate transformation into gender-busting / line-crossing / glass ceiling-shattering Amazon princess. The real-life Xena. Chyna's notorious battles with Fabulous Moolah and her stable of brainwashed subservients was Fight-Fiction at it's finest. It wasn't until the emergence of Awesome Kong in the late 2000s that Chyna had a similar, physical kind of opponent. The strong-style bouts written by those two opposing forces will live on in Mash-Up Wrestling lore forever. Just imagine it! But today - Bedlam in Boston 2018 - the genetic code of Women's wrestling has been rewritten entirely. The head of this new hybrid-form of amazing athletics, workrate and physical prowess is blessed (or cursed) with genes born deep in the blood of this game. The NEW face of Women's *WRESTLING* - a marquee that never quite existed as brightly as it does today on this stage. The indomitable QUEEN of the Ring - the one & only Charlotte Flair (swooooon... I mean "WHOOOOOOO!") With Ronda Rousey still a distant threat in the future, it's safe to say these two opponents - Charlotte vs. Chyna - are the standard-bearers for "Greatest Female Wrestlers of All Time". Tonight we find out who is #1! After a hellacious near-20 minute encounter, Charlotte eventually breaks Chyna down enough to squeeze a reluctant tap-out from the Champion with Charlotte's Figure-8 Finisher! NEW CHAMPION! Post match both women cry and hug, no doubt the result of a taxing physical encounter the likes in which they have never endured. The bonding is complete. The torch has been passed. Queen Charlotte Flair - new WORLD Champion - is the Greatest of all Time.
Winner (and *NEW* Mash-Up Wrestling WORLD Women's Champion): CHARLOTTE FLAIR (2018)
-- cut to victory promo / video recap & highlights / ticker-tape parade for the new Champion / segue to UFC-styled black-n-white dueling promos between Strowman vs Undertaker... coming up NEXT! --
Monster of Men vs the Phenom of Darkness. You couldn't write a better superhero comic book than this. 2007 era Undertaker who wrote a historic series of battles with Batista over the WWE World Championship, teflon-aura and fresh-off a historic run with the BCCW 6-Man Tag Team Titles as the "Brothers of Destiny" (with Kane & Crow Sting). Meanwhile, Braun Strowman has been riding an unbelievable wave of critical & fan support as he tours the territories; tearing down sets, destroying contenders and wreaking havoc wherever he touches down! Like an uncontrollable cyclone, Braun Strowman rampages through the countryside awaiting his chance to return to BCCW once and for all! Ever since being *banned* by Stephanie McMahon, Braun Strowman has waited for this day. So have his proud fans in Boston, and those who traveled from far just to be here for this historic encounter! A match made in part by the Mash-Up Wrestling Committee (who have ultimate autonomy over the WORLD Championship), who have heard the fans wishes and granted this improbable Fight Fiction match-up! Super-Heavyweight Slugfest that has "slobberknocker" written all over it! Eventually the battle spills from the ring onto the Entrance Ramp - where all Hell breaks loose... literally! Strowman scoops Undertaker up in a running powerslam on the Entrance Ramp - and BLAM! They *BOTH* crash through the steel ramp in a climatic explosion! HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! Smarks complained about a non-finish in a WORLD title match. Marks were amazed at the ferocity of the powerslam. Everybody agrees that the end result when two monsters meet is UTTER DESTRUCTION.
Winner: NONE (No Finish)
-- stunned commentator recap & plenty of video reviews / Movie recap of the "Rise of the YES! Movement" in BCCW / followed by ferocious promo retort from HW Champion Bret Hart / Canada vs USA for the glory of BCCW Championship Gold! NEXT! --
One of the biggest Dream Matches of all time - Canadian Stampede-era Bret Hart (pro-Canadian to a Heelish fault) vs. Beloved "YES! Movement" leader, underdog (and proud American) Daniel Bryan. Science vs Technique with Nationalistic fervor. Both men could be considered "best there ever was" by their respective rabid fanbases. Suffice to say, the walkouts alone are explosive and emotional. Bret Hart holds the advantage in height and weight, but critics would say Hart's incessant whining & complaining give Bryan the edge in pure heart. While grappling techniques are comparable, it is undeniable to say Daniel Bryan is the more fortuitous striker. Bryan's blistering chops and stiff kicks will raise the Hitman's ire even further! In the end, after a 30-minute encounter (quite a balance from the "SLAM BANG WOW!" style of the preceding title match) DBryan unsheathes the tribute to Owen Hart - and pins Bret Hart 1994-style. Victory-roll counter / shoulders down! 1!.. 2!.. (Bret Hart can't wriggle free!) 3!! TITANIC POP! Daniel Bryan has done it! He has achieved the unthinkable! HEAVYWEIGHT Champion! They said it couldn't be done! BUT DREAMS COME TRUE IN BOSTON!
Go Celtics! Go Sox! Go Bruins! Go Patriots! BOSTON - the greatest Sports City in the WORLD!!
Winner (and *NEW* Heavyweight Champion): DANIEL BRYAN (2014)!!

Founder and provocateur of the #MashUpWrestling xperience.
A hell of a show MSD. Just so many great matches, even the finish of the Undertaker-Strowman match worked. Just happy to see Daniel beat Brett for the BCCW Heavyweight Belt as well as AJ Styles successfully defending against 'I Lost My Smith' Michaels. Sting beating Broken Matt Hardy was good news as was Roman Reigns sending JBL packing & Cena kicking the hell out of Kevin Owens. The MSW women's title was fine even though I never was or am a fan of Chyna or Charlotte Flair. Rousey looked impressive over Monster Ripper.
The one thing I didn't like was the beatdown on Styles by Nash & Hall allowing Michaels to come back & beat Styles for the belt. Hated it.
It's been a long time coming - both for this show to finally make it onto the Network and for me to finally check it out. I was behind in my viewing and consumed everything else but this one. I'm not sure why I kept holding off on it. BCCW has been a staple of Mash-Up Wrestling for what seems like forever. Lately, the televised events appear sporadically, like rare jewels. And if BCCW shows are rare jewels, then Bedlam in Boston is the rarest and most treasured of them all - like a blood diamond or something of its ilk.
I've been glued to the Network all morning watching this one. It didn't disappoint. A card featuring AJ Styles vs. Shawn Michaels, Chyna vs. Charlotte Flair, Braun Strowman vs. The Undertaker, and Bret Hart vs. Daniel Bryan is definitely a winner, anytime and in any wrestling universe. I'm glad it could happen in this one. Each match was special, and again, I love how you gave it treated it through the lenses of advanced analytics (like a baseball sabremetrician) and historical perspectives. It is such a treat to see someone writing up their cards in this very unique fashion.
The undercard also brought it, although I can't help wonder what happened to the 10-woman tag match that was heavily advertised on the event posters. I know cards are subject to change, but it isn't like one injured woman would have had to squash the entire match. Anyhow, as I said, the undercard was a fine compliment to the aforementioned big four main event matches. Nash vs. Low-Ki was oddly intriguing. Sting vs. Hardy was something I was genuinely pleased to see. Reigns vs. JBL was a match I never thought I'd want to see, but I'm glad I now have.
Plus, John Cena gets to have another classic yet unexpected encounter with Kevin Owens. You can't go wrong there. Could John Cena be on his way out of BCCW? It is hard to imagine BCCW without him. For as long as I can remember, he's been the one sure bet for the Broken City. Could he be leaving to try his luck in another territory or maybe in Hollywood? Say it isn't so, Big Match John! Say it isn't so!
Actually MSD I have watched more of Charlotte & have come around abit on her. She is better than I gave her credit for. Originally, I felt her quick rise in the WWE was because of Flair's friendship with HHH. Maybe it wasn't but I blamed her for it. I am fine with her now. I do like her better as a heel.
