Wrestling Review: GCW Joey Janela’s Spring Break 3 – Part Two (2019)

So big it had to be held over two nights, Game Changer Wrestling (GCW) presents Joey Janela’s Spring Break 3 Part Two, featuring not just any old clusterfuck, but The Greatest Clusterfuck. Featuring over 50 participants, anything goes in the Greatest Clusterfuck, with eliminations occurring only by pinfall, submission or being thrown over the top rope. Rounding out the card is a special exhibition match between Jungle Boy and Joey Janela, and a huge tag team match as L.A.X. (Ortiz & Santana) do battle against one of the greatest tag teams of all time, Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson, The Rock N Roll Express, as well as a classic fight between Japanese legend Masato Tanaka and Mecican superstar L.A. Park.

+ L.A.X. (Santana & Ortiz) vs The Rock N Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson): although this was more of a showcase and nostalgia than an actual match, the Express still busted out a few huge moves. Though not quite to the same level, this was almost the same as the Janela/Marty Janetty match, the “new guy versus old guy who busts out huge moves”. It was a good spectacle, and proof that these RnRs can still go when they want to
+ Joey Janela (w/ Penelope Ford) vs Jungle Boy: another crazy but good match, almost exactly the same as the Janela/Stunt match from Part One. Both Janela and Jungle Boy have recently signed with AEW, so if this match is any indication, there may be some good things in their future. This was relatively simple, and the ending looked a little bit funny, but overall it was fine

The Greatest Clusterfuck: there was so much going on, with so many names I was not familiar with. This was completely insane, and frankly not as good as the first two years’. The ending left a lot to be desired, but the match just went so long that it was almost a blessing to finally get an ending, even if that ending wasn’t particularly good. Much like the first night’s lineup of matches, the lack of big names was really noticeable here
Masato Tanaka vs LA Park: despite Park in particular looking really out of shape (as he has for the last several years). As a nostalgia act, I enjoyed this, but it was very short and Park just can’t go at the pace I have memories of him doing. Tanaka is still a freak, though, and doing great work

Should you watch this event: The first two matches here, Janela/Jungle Boy and L.A.X./Rock N Roll Express were both worth seeing, but the Greatest Clusterfuck just went on for too long with not enough big names to keep things interesting. Names like Sami Callihan, PCO, Pentagon Jr and the like were very obvious omissions.
