ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in May 2018Their March match is one of my favorite WWE matches of the year, and I am glad to see that the chemistry they showed in that one wasn't a one-off thing, because this was another absolute banger between the two. Murphy is just an absolute bruiser, could watch him on the offense destroying his fellow 205'ers all day long. Ali's bumping goes perfectly w/ Murphy's amazing offense & Ali's offense of his own looked absolutely great as well - while Ali is a bonafide bump machine, I thought Buddy stole the show here in that department; he made Ali look like million bucks with his amazing bumping. Ali's flippy stuff has never looked as brutal as it did here. Awesome all around performances by both men. That big Superkick spot outside the ring was so well timed & done too + that arm psychology in the finishing stretch. Great stuff. ****
Shit's good. Not only they establish that Murphy is the stronger dude, but he can also go toe to toe with Kalisto in terms of speed. This match features some actual batshit insane spots - that running release apron suplex was ridiculous. From that point on, the match kicks into 3rd gear and the crowd is loving every second of it. As a fast paced affair this kicked ass.
ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in March 2018The opening portion of the match does a great job establishing the fact that not only is Murphy the bigger, more powerful of the two, but also the quicker one. Ali establishes that he is no slouch either, he one ups Murphy & mocks his taunt - that lead to a DISGUSTING lariat thrown by Murphy. Great stuff. The match is wrestled with more & more sense of urgency as it goes on - both guys did a TREMENDOUS job doing that. You can feel Ali's desperation as he is pretty much getting outclassed - he gets one big opening though. He does a goddamn NASTY 450 to the arm of Murphy; that was absolutely vicious & Murphy sells it like death. Ali finally got a gameplan going; he starts targeting Murphy's arm at every chance he gets, weakening it big time as the match goes on. Murphy sells it greatly. Like I mentioned, the urgency just keeps on rising & rising. Murphy knows his arm is fucked, but he still risks it by doing big dives & moves (still selling in superb fashion) - he knows what's at stake. This match honestly did the best job in recent memory in putting over it's stipulation of winner gets _____. The finish is great w/ Murphy selling that arm like it's about to explode & Ali capitalizing on the damage he had done. Amazing stuff. GODDAMN. Blew me away - Buddy Murphy is indeed "the best kept secret" in WWE; had no idea he had this kind of stuff in him! ****1/4
