Five Dollar Wrestling: Freight Train VS Big Donnie

Thoughts:

What a show, guys. For those of you who don’t know what Five Dollar Wrestling is, here’s the scoop: it’s a comedic wrestling promotion that prides itself on containing terrible wrestling at its finest. A number of the wrestlers (that word being used loosely) have horrible gimmicks, including blatant rip-offs of well-known personalities in the business…and you know what? That’s alright. Hosted/commentated by Colt Cabana and Marty DeRosa, 5DW promises a new way to entertain pro wrestling fans. To quote Freight Train, 5DW is “Wrasslin’ so good you gon’ get yo’ feet wet!”

The big story leading up to this iPPV was that Jake “Manscout” Manning had betrayed Freight Train and the 5DW fans at their Wrestlecon show, having had enough of a promotion that “ruined his life.” He vowed to make the next iPPV the worst one ever, by booking Freight Train against Big Donnie in a main event meant to be so terrible, 5DW could never survive. Based on how the iPPV ended, the future of 5DW seems to be unclear, but one thing is for sure: the spirit of Five Dollar Wrestling will live on…

5EVER…5EVER…5EVER…
