Eric Ryan came to the ring accompanied by Cory Winters. Ryan was making his debut in the PWO (scroll down on the page and you can watch this match along with the next match. The airing date was 11/3/08.) along with his opponent “Omega” Aaron Draven. Ryan looked a bit like a young CM Punk with long shorts and partially tattooed arms. The match started slowly with Ryan controlling the action. Draven ducked out of the ring to avoid a charging Ryan. Draven then locked up Ryan’s arm, walked the top rope and hit a huracanrana which tossed Ryan to the floor. Draven tried to hit Ryan on the floor but got caught in a sit down power bomb. Ryan controlled the match at a slow pace and kept Draven grounded. Winters interferred when Ryan would distract the referee. Ryan hit a good looking Northern Lights Bomb. Draven turned the tables when Ryan tried to hit a package piledriver by kicking him in the head. Draven took Ryan off the top rope 180 degree press for the win.
Analysis: Both wrestlers were better technicians than most of the roster. They also appear to go to the gym which is a plus. The match itself was good with Draven being very impressive with his aerial arsenal that was smooth.
