soup23 Posted January 26, 2017 Report Share Posted January 26, 2017 I liked this but it is a tough match to judge. First it is really long if you include the pre match and post match stuff. I do think there is some good moments like Ian getting upset at the ring announcer for what he has to say about Corporal but it may not have justified the length of pre match festivities. Once the match starts proper, the weapons and glass are used in excess. A lot of punches and cutting with the glass. The thing that I liked best about this match was the build to the big spots in the ring into the big puddle of glass in the middle of the ring. Each move was built up so that it gained a strong reaction from the crowd whether it was a powerbomb or the final DDT Corp gave to Ian onto the glass. The finish was neat too as Ian locks on a Fujiwara armbar that they teased in the pre match promo and Corp has to tap. They set up a match for the next month and I am looking forward to it. This is still fat Ian so his mobility isn’t there or mixing in any chain wrestling, but this match did do an effective enough job in showing a variety to the Tanaka vs. Awesome and crowd brawling matches happening in ECW at this point. *** Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
