Recap from TJ Hawke:
This was a part of Danielson’s return to the indies 2010 summer tour. Danielson had actually returned to the WWE a week earlier as a surprise at Summerslam.
Dragon got a LeBell Lock early, but Younger quickly made the ropes. They traded holds for a bit, until Dragon established an advantage. Younger came back and hit a suplex for a nearfall. Dragon took him down with a forearm and then brought the action to the floor where he dominated Younger some more. Dragon brought Younger back into the ring and remained in complete control. Dragon had a nasty Dragon Sleeper locked in, but Younger survived. Dragon delivered some big kicks, until Younger finally caught Dragon with an exploder suplex. Younger started a big comeback and hit a Falcon Arrow for a nearfall. They trading pinning combinations. Younger dropkicked Dragon to the barricade and then hit Dragon in the ribs with a chair. Younger sat Dragon in the chair and went for his rolling senton, but all he hit was the chair. Dragon then pulled out a tie and started choking Younger. Back in the ring, Dragon hit a missile drokick and then a Buzzsaw Kick: 1…2…NO! Cattle Mutilation! Dragon transitioned that into the “MMA Elbows,” the bell ran to signal the end of the twenty minute time limit. Younger said there is only glory in winning, and he told IPW Mike to ring the bell.
The bell rang, and Dragon and Younger started trading big forearms. Dragon got an O’Connor Roll with a bridge: 1…2…3! The bell rang, but the referee claims it was only a two count. Dragon got on the microphone and insisted that it was a two count. Younger speared Dragon and hit a half-nelson suplex. Younger then hit a middle rope DVD: 1…2…NO! Younger went to the top rope, but Dragon crotched him and hit a super back suplex. Dragon delivered the elbows again. More elbows. Dragon went for Cattle Mutillation, but Younger avoided. Dragon hit three kicks and then a bridging Regal-plex: 1…2…NO! Dragon delivered some more kicks to the chest, but Younger came back with a Falcon Arrow and a moonsault: 1…2…3!
Danielson put Younger over huge on the microphone after the match.
These two had an incredible match building, as the crowd heat and the atmosphere was just off the charts. Younger put in one of the best performances in his career, and Danielson didn’t phone it in at all, despite already being back on WWE TV. However, I do have to the say that the last few minutes really fell flat in my mind. If they ended the match a little earlier. I would have considered this match to be truly great, but instead, it’s merely very, very, very good. You should definitely watch this match.
Match Rating: ***3/4
