Drew Gulak vs Jack Gallagher (NXT UK Tournament, 13/06/2018)

Recommended Posts

This was great: two technical masters giving an unusual type of match in WWE, and the NXT crowd totally buyed it. In less than eight minutes we see quality matwork, tension, limbwork, good selling and a last couple of minutes of pure european brawling. Loved every second of it. It's funny how they tried to work a classic grapple match, 'cause they respect each other and know the other one is a worthy mat-rival, but due to their personalities things got crazy sooner than expected. That final headbutt looked brutal, as always. Very good match, yessir! ***3/4

Gulak and Gallagher are playing this super seriously. All the action minus the final two minutes  is mat-based. Gulak grinds down Gallagher with a mean headlock. Not many people nowadays put much effort into making a headlock look painful. Gallagher manipulates Gulak's limbs in a nasty fashion, but eventually this match turns to a straight up brawl after one too many stalemates on the match, and oh boy, is it glorious.

★★★★

Yep, really really good stuff here. These two could have a good match in 30 seconds or 30 minutes.  Great mat based work that evolves into more of a fight. Loved the flash ko finish.  All around quality stuff. ****

Blown spot aside, this was a really fun match with a cool finish. I like both guys but haven't seen them much in WWE so seeing them actually wrestling was a nice surprise.
