Feels like a BJJ exhibition match in that they're clearly feeding themselves into each other's moves, but there's still a pretty shooty feel to everything. Lots of really cool grappling on display here, including a banana split attempt towards the end of the file. Also interesting hearing the violinist during this as I had assumed before having live music during matches was just a new gimmick thought up by indy promotions in recent years. A bit hard to tell these guys apart, to the point that I'm not sure if George won in 2 straight falls and video is out of order or if it's 2/3 falls with a missing finish. Still enjoyed it a lot regardless.

Compared to the Wagner match just a few months before this, Marshall's presence seems to result that much more closely resembles the modern style. Seems like there's more of an emphasis on theatrical working of individual holds instead of the more back-and-forth grappling seen in the Wagner match. Marshall takes much of the first half of the match, throwing George around at will but it looks like he tires himself out towards the end and that leaves George an opening for a comeback. Nice stretch run for a hot crowd with both guys just charging into each other like two bulls.
