KWF House Show - By Daz
Kingston Wrestling Federation - House Show (1h 20m)

Entrance Way: The entranceway is just a building that the wrestlers emerge from. Each wrestler has his own music which is played when they emerge. 2.5/5

Ring: They wrestle in a yard on a few matresses. An outdoor table & bench is used for the 'top rope' moves. 2.5/5

Arena: Good area. There is a lot of space in the yard. 4/5

Match Quality: The quality of the wrestling has room for improvement. There were some really good moves - some of the wrestlers are better than others. One of the wrestlers have the stomp that goes with each punch etc. perfected very well. 3/5

Match Pace: The matches were paced well. No real problems there at all. 3/5

Match Safety: The wrestling was very safe. There was only one drive from a ladder that could be considered risky, but it was done quite well. 4/5

Wrestler Variety: A lot of variety here. The characters and gimicks that they had were inventive and well thought out. 3.5/5

Wrestler Charisma: Each reflected the style of their character well. 3.5/5

Wrestler Costumes: Due to the extreme cold weather most of the wrestlers and commentators were well rugged up - which is understandable. For this reason they were all dressed in regular street clothes. There were a couple of masked wrestlers. The was one hooded wrestler and a masked wrestler. The mask looked very good. 3/5

Wrestler Mic Skills: Some had better mic skills than others, but all in all quite reasonable. The inclusion of an interview was a nice touch. The wrestler being interviewed showed humor and confidence. 3/5

Storyline Quality: The storyline side of things needs a bit of work. There seemed not to be a strong focus on storylines. 2.5/5

Storyline Originality: Pretty much the same as what I said above. 2.5/5

Commentary Conversation: The commentary was good and it would have received a high score except for the fact that it was very hard to hear due to the commentators being so far away from the camera making them very hard to hear. I found I had to turn the volume up to hear them ammounce a match, only to be blasted by the entrance music while I turned down the volume again. They really had the play-by-play man and color commentator thing worked out well though. 2.5/5

Commentary Topics: The topics they talked about was organised and done well. 3/5

Commentary Move Calling: They knew their moves and called them correctly. It was very hard to hear them call the moves and comment on the match at hand due to them being so far away from the camera. 3/5

Commentary Coordination: A few ocasions were they talked over one another, but this was just an attempt at the color commentator and play-by-play commentator disagreeing with each other as is customary in wrestling. 3/5

FINAL SCORE: 3.1 out of 5.

Most of the wrestlers were good at selling moves. The camera work was fine, it was close to the action and didn't miss anything. The commentators did not introduce the name of the event as any time or if they did I missed it due to the sound. Everyone looked into the camera when talking to the camera. This may seem obvious when talking to the camera and the 'viewers' but sometimes this can be overlooked. This was not the case with KWF's event.
