    wXw Westside Xtreme Wrestling General Discussion Thread ft. 16 Carat Gold

    ​Westside Xtreme Wrestling General Discussion Thread

    German-based wXw is arguably the biggest non-UK based European company there is (and I'm sure some wXw faithfuls might even argue it's the biggest European company period). Formed in 2000, if you've paid any attention to the indies, you've no doubt heard about its famed 16 Carat Gold tournament, one of the finest set of nights of wrestling there are. You've surely heard of a lot of the big names to have won the 16 Carat Gold: Chris Hero, El Generico aka Sami Zayn, Sami Callihan, Tommy End, Zack Sabre Jr. among others (all of whom have gone on to appear for WWE in some capacity or another).

    The best way to get access to them is either via their streaming service wXw now (for just 11.99$) or their occasional shows on FloSlam.

    Currently on their We Love Wrestling tour, and recently having had their January show Back to the Roots XVI, as well as their periodic Shotgun shows, the big landmark ahead of them is that aforementioned famed 16 Carat Gold.

    wXw Dead End XVI - February 24th
    wXw Inner Circle 3 - March 9th
    wXw 16 Carat Gold Night One - March 10th
    wXw 16 Carat Gold Night Two - March 11th
    wXw 16th Carat Gold Night Three - March 12th

    16 Carat Tournament First Round:

    Donovan Dijak Vs Matt Riddle
    ACH Vs Mike Bailey
    Koji Kanemoto Vs Timothy Thatcher
    David Starr Vs WALTER
    Robert Dreissker Vs Ilja Dragunov
    Paul London Vs BAD BONES
    Marius Al-Ani Vs JT Dunn
    Cody Rhodes Vs road to 16 Carat winner

    -------
    Some decent first round matches there but I wish they hadn't stuck Kanemoto with Thatcher.

    To say they've just toured England, would of been nice to see more brits in this. ROH's 15th Anniversary show collides with the opening round so that's why there's no Marty Scurll or Will Ospreay.

    First Round Drawings:

    Cody Rhodes vs. Road To 16 Carat Gold League Winner
    David Starr vs. WALTER
    Donovan Dijak vs. Matt Riddle
    Bad Bones vs. Paul London
    Ilja Dragunov vs. Robert Dreissker
    ACH vs. Mike Bailey
    Marius Al-Ani vs. JT Dunn
    Koji Kanemoto vs. Timothy Thatcher

    AMBITION 8 - March 11th

    Marius Al-Ani
    Mike Bailey
    Bobby Gunns
    Matt Riddle
    Jeff Cobb
    David Starr
    Timothy Thatcher
    WALTER

    (no, I'm not sure what AMBITION 8 is but Jeff Cobb being part of that and not the wXw 16 Carat is a bit odd).

    Riddle v Dijak is excellent, but also a shame one is going to be knocked out so early (Dijak)

    I wish they hadn't just made Shotgun a wXw now exclusive because I used to like checking that out on youtube.

    I think WALTER is gonna win 16 carat.

    Really good line up considering some expect and previously booked talents are now absent. Hyped on Dijak/Riddle.

    Between ROH & WWE I feel like the only big name Brits available was Zack Sabre Jr. Then you maybe have tertiary guys like Mark Haskins and Flash Morgan Webster.

    It makes no sense why Zack isn't there, he was the winner last year, I can't see any dates that clash with Evolve, PWG, Progress or Rev-Pro and clearly he's not injured. Odd.

    Possible explanation I can think of is now he's moved to the states he may be more expensive to bring across and bringing across a hot US guy for similar money makes more sense than spending US talent money on another UK talent.

    Or it doesn't interest him anymore now he's won it, who knows?

    Re: Westside Xtreme Wrestling General Discussion Thread ft. 16 Carat Gold

    Like the good journalist that I am, tweeted at wXw to see if FloSlam were still doing 16 carat. First he said there hadn't been any announcement towards it. Linked it to the original wXw FloSlam announcement where they did say it was happening and he said he wasn't sure if it had already been announced so he didn't want to spoil anything. I'll take that for it meaning that it will in fact be popping up on FloSlam which is great news. Was afraid it'd be like the OTT thing where they just scrapped it. Though tbf, I don't see anyone ordering FloSlam for it when you can pay cheaper on wXw Now unless they want the bonus of the EVOLVE shows + Style Battle + SuperShow 7.

    Been enjoying the 2017 shows they've had up on wXw NOW, in particular anything to do with Ringkampf, Starr, Simmons and A4. Really looking forward to the 16 carat now.

    My predictions for tonight:

    Cody Rhodes defeats Da Mack
    WALTER defeats David Starr
    Matt Riddle defeats Donny Dijak
    Bad Bones defeats Paul London
    Robert Dreissker defeats Ilja Dragunov
    Mike Bailey defeats ACH
    Marius Al-Ani defeats JT Dunn
    Timothy Thatcher defeats Koji Kanemoto

    I think WALTER is gonna win the whole thing.

    If I remember correctly Ambition is shoot-style tournament. Victory occurs by KO, Submission or referee stoppage. Bryan Danielson won the first Ambition Tournament back in the day.

    Agree with this but would love a Thatcher vs. WALTER finale for more Ringkampf goodness.

    Just to steal your sig for a moment, look how much WALTER out-hoss' Cobb in this picture.

    To be fair, David Starr looks the same size as Cobb in that picture.

    Well I was only wrong on 1 prediction, although I did eliminate the eventual winner

    After completing night 3 of the tournament, I have no doubt in my mind that WALTER is a front runner for wrestler of the year right now. He had my three favourite matches of the tournament against David Starr, Matt Riddle and Dragonov, all of which were great matches that should be checked out, and that's on top of a lot of really great tag and 6 man matches with Ringkampf in Germany and UK tours. He's probably had about 10 great matches already this year.

    Never really been a big fan of Dragonov but he won me over a little in this tournament and I loved his finals match with WALTER.

    Cody wasn't half bad in his matches, the Quarter Final match with Bad Bones was pretty good.

    Dieter Jr Vs Jurn Simmons for the title on night 2 was disappointing.

    I haven't seen the true colours show yet, but apparently Ringkampf exploded in the main event, and Axel Dieter Jr. is leaving the promotion at the end of the month after one final match I assume with WALTER. Off to WWE/NXT is what I'm hearing, which no doubt will anger Jon.

    Im proud of my boy Axel. Dude has so much potential. Hes going to do great in NXT. wXw are fortunate that WALTER appears intent on staying for the long term.

    I was hoping your post would be about Buff Bagwell's uocoming wXw match.

    Dave Crist and David Starr are facing off in a 2hr, Double Iron Man Match at Inner Circle. I love David Starr but I cant say I want to watch ANYONE wrestle for more than an hour. 30 mins is the perfect main event length at that.

    Yeah fuck that , I can just about get to an hour probably, but there's no way I'm ever watching that.

    They're on a summer break at the moment, but wXw seemed to be hitting a groove the last few months with the RISE stable giving the promotion a fresh feel, Bad Bones heel turn in their rumble match was really great and WALTER's still being WALTER.

    They put a bunch of 2012 shows up on their on demand service that I haven't got around to seeing yet.
