PROGRESS’ first chapter show outside of the UK saw them gatecrash WrestleMania weekend with a Thunderbastard!

This one took it’s time getting online thanks to the PROGRESS crew’s world travels meaning that they were unable to find a decent-enough internet connection to upload. But nevermind, it’s here now – the first day of PROGRESS from New Orleans!

We’re back at the Ponchartrain Center near New Orleans, and it’s a pretty full crowd – especially compared to some of the other shows that took place in that building. We’ve got the PROGRESS camera crew too, so this looks a lot more like a PROGRESS show, as opposed to the fixed camera stuff we’ve had before. Jim Smallman’s there for the show-opening stuff, complete with a moment’s applause for Matt Cleary – a regular from the F4W website who’d sadly passed days beforehand.

As a head’s up, we’re watching the commentary-free version of the show – a technical issue meant that the audio track recorded by Glen Joseph and Dahlia Black wasn’t useable… so if the re-recorded commentary fills in any blanks that make us look stupid, well, we’re used to it!

PROGRESS World Tag Team Championship: Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) vs. Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) (c)
Going in, the story/threat was that if Moustache Mountain didn’t win back the titles – belts they’d lost at Alexandra Palace last September – they’d be barred from any more tag title shots for six months. Well, I guess the GYV have beaten just about every other regular tag team in PROGRESS, so why not finish off the list emphatically?

Thankfully, PROGRESS opted not to use the entry-way video screens, so we weren’t treated to the random Windows Media Player visualisations during entrances! What we did have, though, was the usual chants against Gibson and Drake, which led into the Zack Gibson promo, once he’d wrestled the mic away from Trent Seven and his attempts to make everyone corpse.

The crowd broke into chants of “we want wrestling”, and finally, after 21 minutes, we had a match! Drake finds himself watching Tyler Bate (and his enormous knee brace) cycle his way out of a wristlock, before Gibson tagged in and scored a double-team dropkick. Gibson avoids the bop/bang punch, but he’s caught by Trent on the outside, who quickly chops the ring post, before returning to the ring to take an airplane spin from Bate.

After shaking off some dizziness, Tyler tagged out… and of course Trent misses his crossbody. Tyler just shook his head, almost like he’d resigned himself to that happening…

Deadweighting himself, Trent’s hauled up… only to fall flat on his face as the champions for some reason decided not to cover him… and that was a mistake as he woke up with chops, causing an “accidental DDT”. Luckily, the champions recovered, distracting the referee with an illegal tag so they could rake Trent’s eyes, as the champs wortried to wear down Trent and his shiny gold trunks.

Finally, Trent gets back into it, tagging in Bate whose Koppo kicks rocked the champions, as Drake exchanged corner-to-corner forearms with him. One of those gets caught and turned into an Exploder, before a standing shooting star press collected Tyler a near-fall. A double-team neckbreaker/powerbomb combo’s good for a near-fall for Bate, but the tables turn when he accidentally lays out Trent, as the champions come back with some swift double-teaming for another near-fall. The champions look for a Doomsday Device, but Tyler manages to punch it free as it turned into a bit of a chicken fight, before turning it into a superplex on Drake… and springboard lariat/Dragon suplex combo as he came within a hair’s breadth of taking the win… because Gibson pushed Trent onto the referee to break up the cover.

Trent gets taken to the outside as Gibson dealt with him, but Tyler’s able to fend off some two-on-one as he decks Drake with a bop/bang punch and a roll-up for a two-count, before he took his eyes off the ball, getting distracted by Gibson on the floor, before promptly getting hit with the Ticket to Mayhem for the win. A really fun opening match, and that’s about as clean a finish you can get… so there’s no disputes or anything surrounding this. So, what do you do with Moustache Mountain for the next six months? You sure as heck can’t have them even teasing a run until after the Wembley show, so unless other forces intervene, this may signal a Tyler Bate singles run? ***½

From an aesthetic point of view, I must remark that it is weird seeing a “PROGRESS show”, and a chaptered one at that, in a ring with zero PROGRESS branding. The custom-made canvas didn’t make the trip, nor did the turnbuckles, and there was more Club WWN placement here than PROGRESS stuff. It’s just odd…

Mark Haskins vs. Will Ospreay
The last time these met in any singles match, Haskins secured a PROGRESS title shot just weeks before cashing it in at their Brixton show, almost two years ago. Time flies!

Oh, they turned on the Windows Media Player visualisations… Ospreay was in the midst of his stupidly-long run of shows with a taped-on head, and we go straight in with the indy missed double dropkick spot before Haskins went straight for Ospreay’s neck with a headlock, keeping the match on the ground with a rather sound game plan that targeted the neck.

Will counters it with a ‘rana and a dropkick, sending Haskins to the floor for… a faked-out dive! When Haskins returned, Ospreay’s back in with kicks and chops, but Haskins keeps hold of the ropes… and earns himself some more kicks as Ospreay ended up getting held onto by Vicki Haskins… giving a distraction as Haskins eventually caught Ospreay with the misdirection tope!

Ospreay tried to fight back, but his sunset flip attempt is blocked as Haskins went to work on the arm, wearing down the IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion in his typical fashion. Some forearms end up leading to Ospreay rebounding off the ropes with an enziguiri, but his head and neck was clearly causing some issues – a constant theme of that weekend. Still, he was able to fly, nailing a springboard forearm for a near-fall, but the neck caused a hesitation that almost got Haskins back into it. That was stopped with a slam as Ospreay followed up with the missed moonsaults into a standing shooting star press, before another missed moonsault out of the corner left him vulnerable for Haskins’ bridging armbar.

A rope break gets Will free, but Haskins stays on top of the arm, only to get sent outside with a desperation ‘rana… returning to stop a rather premature Sasuke special by catching Ospreay with a Blue Thunder Bomb instead. Still, Ospreay tries to fight back, exchanging kicks with Haskins, before he catches Haskins with a standing Spanish Fly – and more neck pain.

The pair tee off on each other with forearms from that, before a low dropkick takes Ospreay into the ropes, as Haskins looked to go airborne with a double stomp. Made in Japan follows, as the pumphandle driver almost got the win, so Haskins decides to go back to the ground game, throwing knees into Ospreay before teasing another Made in Japan… which gets countered into a roll-up for a near-fall, before Ospreay whiffs on an OsCutter.

Haskins is right back in with a roll-through death valley driver, then another bridging armbar, but it’s not enough as Ospreay broke free, taking Haskins down for the diving corkscrew kick… but Vicki’s back on the apron as he went for an OsCutter, providing another distraction to allow Mark to try for a Sharpshooter. That doesn’t work, nor does the death valley driver, as Ospreay counters with Stundog Millionaire, before landing the OsCutter for the win. A really good match, with Haskins perhaps showing that his lot is still in the tag team ranks (particularly since he’s not in Super Strong Style 16 this year). This one might have been even hotter in front of a “regular” PROGRESS crowd – or with some semblance of a storyline. ****

RINGKAMPF (WALTER & Timothy Thatcher) vs. David Starr & Keith Lee
This was originally meant to be Sexy Starr vs. RINGKAMPF, but Jack Sexsmith wasn’t able to make it to New Orleans, so David Starr had to find a replacement.

It’d be very harsh to throw in the “upgrade” meme for Keith Lee, but David Starr a chance now, except for the fact that he once again is in a ring with WALTER. We know how that usually ends… and it’s a fate worse than unfolding t-shirts at his merch tables. Starr tries his luck with WALTER from the off, ducking a chop as he’s more than smart to those now. Problem is, WALTER can just toss him around the ring with ease. Oh well! He does manage to trip the big Austrian though, but not much more as WALTER swings once more, before… CHOP!

RINGKAMPF corner Starr, with Thatcher coming in for an uppercut, with Starr turning the tables as he charged Thatcher into the opposite corner to tag in Keith Lee. Thatcher’s in no mood for glory basking, as he lays into Lee… and gets decked with a forearm. Starr’s back in, and he’s used as ballast as Lee slammed him onto Thatcher… but it seemed that the Product wasn’t exactly thrilled about that!

Starr unloads on Thatcher with a Violence Party, but he’s quickly cut off with a RINGKAMPF belly-to-belly as WALTER instantly tagged back in, slamming Starr ahead of the Earthquake sit-out splash as RINGKAMPF exchanged quick tags as they took the Product apart. CHOP! Yeah, WALTER’s back… A single-leg crab forced Starr to get to the ropes for freedom, before he teased a German suplex and just had his face booted off instead. The suplex comes from WALTER though, who follows in with a butterfly suplex for a near-fall, before Keith Lee tagged in and took the fight straight to WALTER and Thatcher with double-handed chops. WALTER’s boot looked to pup a stop to it, but somehow Keith Lee popped him up for a Spirit Bomb. What in the world?!

Thatcher’s right in though with a rear naked choke, which gets broken up with a missile dropkick from Starr, before it was business as usual for WALTER, chopping through Starr while Thatcher and Lee restrained each other on the outside. Finally, Starr takes down WALTER with the Han Stansen, before flipping out of a German suplex and actually catching WALTER with a Cherry Mint DDT!

A big WALTER lariat puts an end to that, before a second almost gets the win, as WALTER decided to just flatten Starr with a powerbomb for the win. Another good match, with Starr showing his usual hope against WALTER, but in the end, when der Ringgeneral flipped the switch, there wasn’t much left to do as Starr found himself in a familiar situation once more. ****¼

Hey Brandon Tolle, we saw you trying to Fargo strut…

Thunderbastard: Chris Brookes vs. Rickey Shane Page vs. Darby Allin vs. Austin Theory vs. Joey Janela vs. Parrow vs. Jeff Cobb vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman
Just six weeks on from the last one – which had since been won and unsuccessfully cashed-in by Flash Morgan Webster – PROGRESS bring back the Thunderbastard!

The first two out were Chris Brookes and Rickey Shane Page, the latter making his PROGRESS debut here. There’d be a lot of those on this weekend’s shows…

Brookes is all over RSP early on, instantly pulling him down into a wet willie… but Page just sucked the finger instead. Well, that’s a unique way around it! A suplex throw and a roundhouse enziguiri puts Page ahead, as they ended up outside… where Brookes avoids an apron powerbomb by trapping Page in the apron for a stomp. That doesn’t last though, as a snap slam from Page put Brookes in the corner for some chops, as the countdown played – minus the usual slowdown – to introduce… Darby Allin!

Darby went straight for Brookes with a lucha-style armdrag, before taking Page outside for a monstrous Coffin Drop! Yep, he may be in a storyline that’s extinguishing some of this fire in EVOLVE, but fired-up Darby Allin is a delight! Until he’s sandwiched between pump kicks from Brookes and Page, that is, as the smaller Allin quickly became bullied, as he became the victim of a double wet willie. Nice to see Page and Brookes on the same page!

Fourth out was Austin Theory, who burst into fire instantly, taking down Allin with a spinning backbreaker before superkicking Page into an accidental slam om Brookes.Perhaps not quite as explosive as Darby, but a good start nevertheless from someone whom a lot of folks are high on (including myself, aside from the EVOLVE character… there’s a trend here, isn’t there?)

Theory targeted Allin working him into the corner before a horrific Irish whip took Darby out between the top and middle ropes, as he careered down to the floor. That… looked NASTY. Page comes in as Darby tried to recover, and we’re already onto the fifth entrant as Page took another wacky spill to the floor… and here’s Joey Janela, along with his not-Kavinsky theme. Janela’s straight into Theory with forearms and chops, before going airborne with dives, finishing off with an elbow suicida as poor Darby was taking a battering.

Back inside, a corkscrew crossbody almost got Darby a pin over Janela, but they end up outside as Darby found a chair and set up Janela in it,before heading outside for a tope con giro into the chair which looked to miss as Darby spiked himself on the floor. Just in time for another entrant then, as Parrow clocked in for his PROGRESS debut, walking past the severely-knackered Darby on his way in.

Parrow had eyes for everyone, punching out Theory, slamming Brookes, and clotheslining Janela as the crowd went silent out of worry for Allin. How do you restrain a big guy like Parrow? You cling onto his legs like you’re doing a Dixie Carter stopping Hulk Hogan walking away from you… but it barely worked as Parrow continued to bulldoze through the field.

Next out is Jeff Cobb, and oh God, we’ve a clash of the big lads waiting. Except Darby Allin tried to fight on, before he was shoved away… and the big lads just ragdolled everyone else for their own amusement. A staredown between Parrow and Cobb happened just as the clock ticked down once more… and it’s a debut for MJF, who’d provide the perfect foil as he took the mic to introduce himself to the PROGRESS crowd.

By the time he got to the ring, MJF held back from being part of a pile that caught Parrow’s powerbomb on Cobb… Friedman then tried to buy his way past Parrow, as the crowd chanted “EC2” at him. It didn’t quite work as Parrow bounces him with a chokeslam, as a Parade of Moves broke out, ending with a pumphandle ushigoroshi from MJF to Janela. Allin is still in this, and nails a Code Red to Brookes, before a back body drop with a cheeky kick from RSP put him down, ahead of a top rope powerbomb…

…but instead of covering Darby, RSP was rolled up by MJF, whose crucifix eliminated the then-CZW champion. Sure enough, Page wasn’t happy with that, and quickly flattened Friedman with a choke-breaker before Allin threw himself onto them with a Coffin Drop as Allin was eliminated for… safety reasons, I guess? [Editor’s Note: Friedman apparently pinned Allin after he’d eliminated Page]. Parrow kept the eliminations piling up with a sit-out powerbomb on Theory, before kicking out of a schoolboy from Janela. Somehow, Friedman and Janela were able to work together, superkicking and dog-piling on Parrow for the pinfall, as the field suddenly halved.

Janela and Friedman go at it, with Janela coming out ahead with a death valley driver into the corner for the next elimination, as we were down to Janela, Cobb and Brookes for the final three. Perhaps Janela’s attempt at chopping Cobb wasn’t such a smart idea, but he held his own, before getting dropkicked onto the top rope and thrown out of there with a pumphandle Exploder. Brookes tried to get cute, but he just earned himself a spinning back suplex… Janela gets an Athletic-plex too, as Cobb was going into Beast Mode, taking them both down with a back suplex. AT THE SAME TIME. Janela becomes a Lykos for the flying lungblower part of the CCK tag move, before Brookes turned on Janela, dumping him with a German suplex and an Octopus hold to force the tap.

That has to be the first time in a long while since that got a fall…

Cobb’s straight out at Brookes, toying him around with gutwrenches, before Brookes took him down with a slingshot cutter for a near-fall. In the end though, Cobb flicks the proverbial switch and after taking a couple of chops, headbutted Brookes before giving him a Tour of the Islands for the win. This was a decent Thunderbastard, but the injury to Darby Allin clearly derailed things in the middle – and appeared to cause some issues. Chris Brookes lasting to the final seems to suggest they’ve got longer-term plans for him, as seen by him winning that no-DQ match with TK Cooper at the last chapter. I’m not a fan of matches where all of the eliminations pile up on each other, which is what happened here, but extenuating circumstances and all that… ***¼

There’s no intervals by the way, so we’re ploughing straight through…

Jinny & Mercedes Martinez vs. Toni Storm & Shazza McKenzie
This match marked Jinny’s return after two and a half months – she’s still got supporting onto her healed-arm, and was apparently only cleared for tag team action… so she’s here with Mercedes Martinez, one of two debutants in this match.

Yeah, a show on WrestleMania weekend will do that!

We started with Storm trying to go for an armbar on Martinez, but it’s quickly stuffed as they reached a stalemate… while more than a handful of confused Americans were treated to chants of “Primark Princess.” Mercedes and Storm kept it technical and on the mat, with each of them looking to work the other’s arm. Eventually, Martinez got free and slapped Storm, but in turn she’s taken down with a hip attack as the Australians put their rears to use. At least until Jinny came in and kicked them away, that is…

That brief double-team put Jinny and Mercedes ahead, as they focus on wearing down McKenzie for a spell… but eventually Shazza mounted a comeback, kicking away Mercedes and Jinny, only to get pulled to the floor where the double-teams resumed, before Martinez scored a near-fall from a delayed suplex back inside.

Finally, Shazza got herself some proper breathing room with a back suplex to Martinez, before making a hot tag to Storm, who went hog wild on Jinny, hitting a back cracker in the ropes before fishing out German suplexes to Martinez. Hip attacks and knees followed as the Aussies pulled up Martinez for a double-suplex, but Jinny breaks it free with a head kick before putting the boots to Storm.

Toni went after Jinny’s hand, but it’s kicked away as the match lost the crowd for a brief moment… but they paired up again as McKenzie gets a near-fall with a stunner to Martinez, who replied with an Exploder as Jinny and Toni fought on the floor, before a brainbuster out of nowhere got Martinez the win. This was okay, but was met with what could best be described as a polite reaction from the crowd. The fact that Jinny did only limited stuff in a tag match perhaps underscored that she isn’t fully cleared, but it was enough to keep the build going to her title shot in Manchester next month. **½

Jimmy Havoc vs. Matt Riddle
A first-time singles match then, as Matt Riddle gave his newly-won EVOLVE title an airing.

Riddle charged at Havoc and the bell, and quickly takes him down with an Exploder, before going to town with gutwrench suplexes. It’s a bit of a sprint this, as Riddle’s getting his stuff in early, taking Havoc into the corner for some kicks and forearms for good measure.

Vicki Haskins pops up on the apron early to provide a distraction, but it doesn’t work as RIddle elbows away Havoc… who replies by biting the bare feet of the EVOLVE champion. SO that’s what Gene Snitsky was into!

A low bridge sent Riddle to the outside, as Havoc kept up on the bare feet, smashing them into the floor, then the ring steps, before biting the little piggie that went to market! Havoc keeps Riddle on the outside, throwing him into the commentary desk, then the ring post, before Riddle looked to mount a comeback… but was only successful in pump kicking the ring post.

More footwork followed from Havoc, who took Riddle into the corner for a dropkick and a double stomp – again, targeting the feet – before he tried to win with an ankle lock. Riddle gets free with a kick, before eking out a near-fall with a German suplex… but Vicky’s handed Havoc an 8×10”, and Havoc puts it to use by giving Riddle paper cuts between the toes. That sick puppy.

Another ankle lock followed as Havoc tried to humiliate Riddle with a submission, but Riddle gets to the ropes… and prompts an ejection for Haskins, as she tried to wrestle Riddle’s hand off the ropes. Havoc’s able to keep up without her though, nailing an Acid Rainmaker for a couple of near-falls as Riddle was unable to follow through with kicks.

Havoc grabs an extremely padded chair, but when he’s disarmed he low blows Riddle, who’s able to come back quickly by taking Havoc down into a Bromission for the quick submission. A nice, TV-style match that packed quite a bit in without it ever coming across as one-sided. Not on the same level as the sprint that established Riddle here against Will Ospreay 18 months-or-so earlier, but a lot of fun. ***¼

Flash Morgan Webster vs. Mark Andrews vs. Pete Dunne
Flash was in borrowed ring gear, thanks to his luggage getting lost on the way to New Orleans. For temporary gear, I kinda liked the “hardened” look of Flash… almost in the same vein as “streetfight” Ligero.

Of the three, Pete Dunne was treated as the bigger star by the crowd, which I guess confirmed NXT > 205 Live in terms of star-making shows on the WWE Network.

Vicki’s ejected from the off, as Pete Dunne bursts into life, taking out Webster with a forearm, then a stomp to the arm as Flash was having his digits pulled on. Flash returned with an armdrag out of the corner as he tried to keep Dunne down, nailing the Special Brew Flip for just a one-count before he was sent to the outside with a clothesline. Mark Andrews comes in next, wheelbarrowing Dunne into a stomp, before scoring with a flying ‘rana…

Revolving Door Wrestling takes us to Webster and Andrews, with the latter trying a roll-up as the pair exchanging pinning attempts before reaching a stand-off. An attempted handshake gets interrupted by Pete Dunne’s biting, as he focused on Webster, hitting an X-plex onto the apron before going after Andrews once more. Andrews fought back with chops, then a 619 to the gut, before Webster returned with Eton Rifles to Dunne, and a pair of topes con giro to the pair of them on the outside.

A Shadows over Malice senton to Dunne gets a near-fall for Webster as we went back to those revolving doors, with Andrews getting taken into the corner… but he rebounds with a tornado DDT to Webster inside… then Dunne on the floor, before charging into a Strangler from Webster. Not to worry, Andrews escaped with a Northern Lights, but his cover was broken up by a stomp from Dunne to keep the match alive.

Andrews gets suckered into Dunne’s forearm trap, as he’s sent flying into the corner, before Webster replaced him… and got themselves stacked up as Dunne tried to beat them with single leg crabs at the same time. They escape, as a Parade of Moves broke out, including Webster’s Rude Boy moonsault getting superkicked away, before Webster’s Angel Wings on Andrews left everyone laying.

Webster keeps up his assault with a double reverse ‘rana to Dunne and Andrews at the same time, but he’s caught up top by Andrews, who brought him down with another ‘rana, into the path of Dunne, whose Bitter End gets a near-fall… as he broke the count to allow for a shooting star press from Andrews onto Webster, before dishing out a tombstone for the win. Buttery-smooth stuff from all three guys here, although that’s no surprise since they came up together. Like Ospreay/Haskins earlier, this was really good, but I’d have liked it had there been something at stake here, but it was what it was. Worth a re-watch though, definitely. ***¾

We’re not done though… Mark Andrews was left in the ring alone after Dunne and Webster left, and out comes Eddie Dennis! Yes, he’d made the trip to New Orleans to keep stalking down Andrews in search of a fight. Eddie claimed the “deafening silence” was because the fans didn’t know who he was… something he blamed on Andrews for taking all of the spotlight and credit during their run as FSU.

Yet again, Mark refused to engage with his former tag team partner’s request for a punch in the face, as Eddie demanded his “WrestleMania moment”. Instead, Andrews bailed with his tail between his legs, and we’re still waiting for their first altercation. It’s still the best reactions PROGRESS are getting, and it’s just from the teases!

PROGRESS World Championship: Shane Strickland vs. Travis Banks (c)
His first outing in PROGRESS since WrestleMania weekend last year, Strickland walked into a title match… against a Travis Banks, who got a mixed reaction as the memo about his turn to the dark side had clearly not reached all of New Orleans yet.

From the opening tie-up, Banks took Strickland down to the mat as he tried to stomp and kick through the King of Swerve, who was more than even to his moves. Strickland struck first with a chop, as Banks was more than happy to oblige, going back and forth with chops and forearms in the early going.

That gave way to a series of kicks from Banks, who took Strickland onto the apron with a thrust kick. Forearms keep up the pressure as Strickland was left loopy going into the corner… but he rebounds, taking down Banks for a leaping heel kick for a delayed two-count. With Banks still in the corner, Strickland followed with a pump kick before rolling the champion down into a double armbar, which was quickly broken in the ropes.

Banks tried to make a comeback by tripping up Strickland, but instead he’s got to fire back as Strickland hand-walked past that attempt, with the champion instead taking Strickland down with kicks and punches from above. Strickland makes a comeback with a 619 in the corner, but his slingshot Flatliner’s blocked as Banks instead gets taken onto the apron, then knocked off it with a superkick.

Sensing his killshot, Strickland goes onto the apron for a running knee to Banks, before hitting the slingshot Flatliner at the second attempt. The pressure’s kept up with a knee strike as Strickland went to head up top, but his stomp misses as Banks kicked him into the corner instead for a cannonball. Strickland holds to avoid a German suplex out of the corner, but Banks is right back at him, hitting a stomp off the top before going Coast to Coast, taking Strickland outside for a low-pe. A second one’s cut-off with another knee as Strickland dumped Banks onto the apron with a death valley driver, before placing him across the guard rails for a stomp to the lower back. Oof.

That got Strickland a near-fall as he’s started to bleed from his back, presumably from the apron stomp – thanks deathmatch scars! – but it didn’t deter the challenger as he tried for a superplex, before instead scoring a near-fall with a stomp off the top. Banks too was showing his war scars, as that earlier knee on the apron left him with a nice shiner to his eye… Undeterred, Banks countered a second superplex effort into an avalanche Kiwi Krusher, and that’s your lot! A little abrupt for a finish, likely caused by Banks’ bleeding eye, but this was a solid, if unremarkable main event. ***½

PROGRESS’ first New Orleans show was a bit of a mixed bag – it started off really hot, but started to tail away after the Thunderbastard. Perhaps it suffered a little from the influx of “non regulars” that that match yielded, as from afar it was hard to fully invest in believing that a debutant like Austin Theory would win the match, or indeed be in a role where he’d be appearing on a PROGRESS show in the UK in the near future.

Still, as a show, Chapter 66 was a solid outing, and stopped short of the trap that companies tend to fall into on weekenders – leaving clear and obvious markers on show one for stuff that’s happening on show two. It’s definitely worth a watch, especially the first half of the show; although the main event in particular is an experiment on what happens when folks aren’t perhaps up to speed on storylines!
