Got there about a half hour late (no internal sense of direction). Saw the ending of Taylor/Hadley which seemed pretty good.
Everything after intermission was great. O'Reilly/Sami was brutal with some nice MMA exchanges sprinkled in. AR Fox does amazing stuff (and is really smooth doing it) and Ricochet just keeps getting better. Dog Collar match was a good fight but most of it was on the other side of the building, so my feelings are limited to what happened in the ring and right when they came over the guardrail.
The main event was really fun. It's clear that the Wolves are just on a different level than most Chicago based teams, but that's the result of experience and the opportunities they've had to wrestle just about everywhere as singles guys and in tag teams. That said, Airborne didn't look out of place. They weren't on the same level, but if they had the opportunity to wrestle against guys like Davey/Edwards more frequently, there's no reason to think they couldn't fit right into one of the bigger indy promotions.
Davey's promo was strange. I get what he was going for (IA deserve another shot at the bigger time) but in IPW it felt weird.
Overally, I'm glad I made the trip and would reccomend checking the show out when the DVD is released (which probably won't be that long since Smart Mark's got a pretty good rate of turning things out).
