[2018-01-14-EVOLVE 99] WALTER vs Zack Sabre Jr

Recommended Posts

This isn’t as awesome as their PWG match a few months ago but I still really liked it. WALTER just being a grizzly bear. Crowd was pretty hot for it, as well, especially considering it is EVOLVE.

I feel like this one is being undersold, but maybe I am just a mark for both these guys. I don't think they are capable of a bad match. This fucking ruled to me. This was a bit slower than their PWG match or their Progress match and is still maybe my third favorite of their recent high-ish profile encounters, but I still thought this was top notch stuff. Sabre having real trouble denting the armor of Walter here was awesome as Walter either countered or shrugged off a lot of Sabre's offense. When Sabre did get something he really had to work for it. The story as I saw it was Sabre's game plan just not working out well as he takes too much trauma in the early and middle stages to out last Walter and catch him slipping later. Walter's offense - as always - looked brutal as he laid just about everything in. Especially in the final quarter of the match when Sabre was loopy and in survival mode. You could see his grasp on the match slipping, even when he kicked out at one. This was a more definitive and dominant finish than their Progress or PWG matches, which I thought was a nice touch, especially as this feud feels a bit like a changing of the guard as indy wrestling's ace. ****1/2 for me. I loved this match.
