All EPIC WAR matches are temporarily unavailable. The promotion has assured me that the matches will be available again. I will fix the posts as the matches become available again.
Recap from TJ Hawke:
Joey Ryan was in the ring claiming that there was no one in this locker room that was a challenge to him. Then “The Final Countdown” started to play…
Joey was not happy about this situation. Dragon had the advantage early, so Ryan left the ring to recover. Joey went back in the ring, where Dragon promptly locked in a submission. Joey didn’t grab the ropes because of his pride. Joey is an idiot. Dragon was in control (using various submissions) for a while. Ryan eventually got fed up and tried to walk to the back. Dragon brought him back to the ringside area and proceeded to beat his ass. Dragon sent Ryan into the ring, which allowed Ryan’s valet (there was no commentary, so I didn’t know her name) to attack him from behind. That didn’t harm Dragon, but the distraction allowed Ryan cut off Dragon. Ryan started to work over Dragon. Dragon eventually came back with a series of forearms. Ryan got a nearfall with a pinfall where he had his feet on the ropes. Ryan to the top rope, but Dragon countered his double sledge into an atomic drop. Dragon got a nearfall with a backbreaker. Joey came right back with a Mustache Ride for a nearfall of his own. Dragon accidentally caused Ryan to kick the referee. Ryan then hit Dragon with a superkick. Ryan got a chair and started beating him down. Biggie Biggz jumped onto the apron and pulled back the chair. Dragon hit a running leg lariat, stomped Ryan’s head in and locked in Cattle Mutilation! Ryan taps out!
This match was OK. I’m not really a big fan of Ryan’s singles matches, and this match didn’t do anything to shake that feeling. The match was well-worked and entertaining for the most part, but it never really got out of second gear.
Match Rating: ***1/4
