BWA Saturday Showdown
Long Beach, NY (East Hudson Street)
5/2000

(the match rating system is similar to if you were reading a movie or TV show review, or even a regular wrestling match review. However, keep in mind that a match that might get **** here wouldn’t be what a real pro wrestling match gets, they are ratings to reflex that of a backyard wrestling match, so just keep that in mind. Below are the star rating guide line. matches will include half stars to accompany the match (EX: *1/2, ** 3/4, etc…typically since the best rating is *****, a match **1/2 would be right in the middle and considered an average match)

DUD- Offensive to the viewing public
* = bad match
**= fair and acceptable
***= good match
****= great match
*****= CLASSIC!

We open our next show in an actual backyard as we move out of the beach. The Beach Street Connection/BOH feud is a hot topic and two new wrestlers make their BWA debuts.

Rating **3/4- Good solid effort here as we start to see some improvement in the actual wrestling department. The negative is that the ladder match just didn’t work. The point was to climb the ladder to get to the belt that was hanging in the tree, but multiple times both guys just climb the tree it’s self. The idea was abandoned for over a year, however in the end it ended up being a good match and moving along the BOH/BSC feud and adding Sick Boy and Ray to the mix
