Beyond Wrestling’s Powerbomb TV iPPV event, Far Beyond Wrestling, kicks off with a pre-show that boasts some strong bouts worthy of being on the main card. This event was held on September 24, 2017.

Rory Gulak & Jay Freddie vs Tracy Williams & Wheeler Yuta

Some fine tag team action to get the evening started. There wasn’t a clear-cut babyface/heel dynamic, but for the most part Williams and Yuta sort of assumed the heel role. This was my first time seeing Yuta and he reminds me a lot of a young, unpolished Zack Sabre Jr. I can’t wait to see him in a few years once he’s fully shined. This match was a solid opener where all four men got to show off their strengths. It lacked a proper heat segment to make it compelling, but this was a good way to get things started. ★★¾

Dick Justice vs Francis Kip Stevens

This was what you would expect given the names involved. I’m a huge fan of comedy wrestling, but it has to be done right. Sadly, this match wasn’t the ‘laugh-out-loud’ match I thought it would be. Quite frankly, there isn’t anything particularly funny about it and the finished got botched to boot. A short chuckle at best. ★

Deonna Purrazzo vs Penelope Ford

Had it not been for the finish falling a tad bit flat and time restraints, this would have easily been the best match on the pre-show. They started off with a beautiful display of technical mastery. The Bad Girl really held her own here. I could have watched these two wrestle all night. Unfortunately, just when this match really started to get it going was when it also ended. It’s such a shame because these two were putting on a clinic. Then I remembered that this was a pre-show so I can’t fault them. I think I can live with it, but I will definitely like to see a re-match between these two ★★¾

15,000 Thumbtack Match: Matt Tremont vs Ace Romero

Matt Tremont is supposedly done with deathmatch wrestling, so I assume that 15,000 thumbtacks do not fall into that category. I absolutely loved this match (for what it was) and for Beyond to give this away for free is just crazy. These two went to war, repeatedly slamming each other into the tacks. There was even a thumbtack bat (which introduced the tacks into the match) and it was just nasty to watch them beat the crap out of each other with. The finish was badly botched but they did try their best to recover from it. Still, this was awesome to watch and it’s only the pre-show! ★★★
