This was a classic match with a great hype video showing the history between the two. They were both trading shoulderblocks early on and Walter did an impressive leapfrog. There were lots of strike exchanges and lots of Sekimoto attempting power moves on the huge Walter and eventually getting the bodyslam. Walter also hit a huge tombstone on Sekimoto who later got Walter in a deadlift bridging German suplex. Sekimoto hit a top rope splash and then came backward off the ropes missing an elbowdrop. Walter gives him some big chops and puts on a sleeper. Sekimoto fights out but Walter boots him in the face and gives him an emerald frozien for the pin.

After the match Walter cut a promo talking about having six matches in the past three days and one more to go (later tonight on SMASH). He appears to be putting over the product and fans but then turns and says it is an absolute disgrace to be wrestling on independents and how he deserves better things. He rips on the fans and on independents until David Starr runs in, hits a German Suplex and a tope suicida and they brawl ringside to end the show.

 Didn't like the fact that commentary was way over the ring mics, it took away from the sound of these two beating the shit out of each other for play by play that didn't really add much imo, though I understand it was more aimed for someone that doesn't know about the story between these two.

But anyway, the match is pretty good though, specially considering WALTER''s ridiculous schedule before this encounter. Still, I was disappointed the first 5 minutes with WALTER working the neck were just complete filler and didn't matter at all, they made me think we were gonna get one of those "struggle for every move" type of Strong BJ matches. Now, there is some of that in the here - which were the best parts imo - but it takes a backseat over trading big power moves.

This may have been one of the most disappointing matches of the year.  It wasn't bad, but it almost seemed as though both knew they had bigger matches in front of bigger crowds ahead and were looking to go through the motions here.  The intensity and stiffness kept it from being a waste of time, but it was a far cry from Mike Elgin's matches in BJW later in the month or even a typical Walter affair.
