ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in June 2017If it wasn't for Tanahashi & Naito putting on another masterclass of the graps a few matches later, this would've been an EASY MOTN. Amazing psychology with The Bucks taking out Rocky with an apron powerbomb, so that leaves Trent alone for quite a while - Trent has become one of the absolute best FIP's in the business & he was outstanding here. Just selling & bumping his ass off while The Bucks did great work over him. Loved how when Rocky was first starting to get back to the match, Matt goes and powerbombs him on the entrance ramp right away. Once he does make it back to things, RPG Vice get more offense in, but you just know they can't get it done because of the damage both guys had taken - they sold that in superb fashion. Brilliant stuff. ****1/2
bradhindsight posted a topic in January 2017A bit of a divisive match ratings-wise. There's a narrative out there that if you understood the Rocky/Beretta internal story about how Rocky couldn't get the job done, then the match is four stars - otherwise its 3 and 1/4. I completely see that story, and Rocky gets some big kickouts while Trent is KO'd outside after a missed dive. But Beretta comes back into the match, and RPG wins on a fluke roll-up. I'm all for weaving some fantastic story into the action, but this never reached the pre-described fairy tale. It was what it was (and I dug the springboard destroyer by the Bucks early) - a ***1/4 match.
Talk about it here.
