Recap from TJ Hawke:
Surreal matchup, at least to me. Colt Cabana was on commentary. Scorpio looked to be in pretty damn great shape. Joe Dombrowski puts Davey over as a great tournament wrestler. Cabana referenced Davey winning a checkers tournament in the ROH Locker Room. So many buys.
They traded a lot of holds to start the match. Davey hit a nice spinning heel kick that gave him the control. Davey worked over one of Scorpio’s knee. Scorpio came back with a koppou kick in the corner. Scorpio then hit a wacky double kick in the corner and a top rope splash for a nearfall. Scorpio then hit a huge release German suplex. Scorpio hit a second twisting diving splash for another nearfall. Scorpio hit a gutwrench suplex and a Superfly splash for another nearfall. They traded a lot of big forearms. Then they traded big boots to the face. Scorpio won both exchanges, but Davey survived. Davey hit the handspring kick for a nearfall. Scorpio came back with a Pele variation. MOONSAULT: 1…2…NO! Davey avoided a German and came back with an Alarm Kick and a lariat. Bridging german from Davey: 1…2…NO! Davey locked in the Texas Cloverleaf, but Scorpio escaped. Scoprio hit a pair of kicks and a big powerbomb. Scorpio signaled for the 450 and he hit it: 1…2…3!!!
This was a really fun match. It wasn’t especially substantial in terms of story or character, but they did some cool stuff, and they definitely entertained me and the crowd. Not much else needs to be said quite frankly.
Match Rating: ***1/2
Thoughts from Lee Goodfellow:
It was cool seeing one of the innovators of the nineties against one of the top indy guys of the following decade. The match was very good, with the clash of Scorpio’s aerial offence and Davey’s strong style offence working very well. The last stretch in particular was a lot of fun, but I didn’t quite buy into Scorpio winning, since Davey looked like the better man throughout.
