Recap from TJ Hawke:
This was a first round matchup in IWC’s annual Super Indy tournament.
They did a back and forth sequence to start. Punk got control with some nice chops and a vertical suplex. McChesney came back with a nice headscissors and a missile dropkick. Punk came back with a super hurricanrana and a running forearm. Punk hit the mule kick that he doesn’t do in WWE. McChesney hit a superkick for a nearfall. McChesney gave Punk a Snake Eyes variation, but Punk just killed him with a lariat. McChesney had to grab the ropes to survive that pinfall attempt. McChesney hit a flapjack. McChesney went to the top rope. Punk tried to attack him, but McChesney sent him to the mat and hit a Superfly Splash for another nearfall. McChesney reversed a neckbreaker attempt from Punk into a backslide: 1…2…3!!! Punk raised McChesney’s hand after the match. Punk then got on the mic and said this weekend is about Chris Candido, who had recently passed away. Punk got the fans to chant “Chris Candido.”
I really enjoyed this match. Punk did some different stuff when he was in the independents and it was cool to relive it here. He put over McChesney clean too, which was nice. I had never seen McChesney before, but I thought he looked strong here. He’s apparently still working here and there, but I guess he never really broke out. McChesney would later go on to win this tournament.
