On the official DEADLOCK Patreon, the first episode of DPW Fire which aired on YouTube last week has been uploaded without commentary for patrons in the $25 a month DPW tier. In the post they stated the following:
The inaugural episode of DPW Fire with no commentary track! We all here at DEADLOCK enjoy wrestling with & without commentary tracks so we thought we would give the option to watch both options for our shows.https://www.patreon.com/posts/dpw-fire-ep-1-no-60276250
Based on this message, DEADLOCK seem to be planning to release all further episodes of DPW Fire and possibly future PPV/Patreon Exclusive events without commentary as a bonus feature for their patrons.
I personally feel this is a net-positive. One thing that sometimes get in the way of wrestling is commentary. In saying that, I don’t currently feel that way about DPW. I feel that a good move might be to make the commentary-free episodes of Fire available publicly. I do understand the reasoning behind making it a Patreon incentive, since they don’t yet have a backlog of PPV shows.
