Recap from TJ Hawke:
This match was for Ricochet’s IPW Junior Heavyweight Championship. Ricochet had recently completed his first tour of Dragon Gate.
They started out a little more tentative than I expected. Fox eventually managed to send Ricochet to the floor. Fox went for the kick-flip moonsault, but Ricochet avoided it and hit him with a superkick. Ricochet rolled him back into the ring, and he started to work Fox over. Ricochet hit a standing moonsault for a nearfall. Fox came back with a bulldog that drove Ricochet’s face into a turnbuckle. Fox followed that with a diving single knee codebreaker. Ricochet fell to the floor, anf Fox then hit a somersault plancha. Fox put him on the ring apron, and he then hit the diving guillotine legdrop. That always looks painful. Back in the ring, Fox hit Thugbait: 1…2…NO! Ricochet then hit a standing flipping senton for a nearfall. Ricochet hit a backslide driver: 1…2…NO! Fox came back with his twisting brainbuster: 1…2…NO! Fox went to the top rope, but Ricochet crotched him. Ricochet went for a super back suplex, but Fox knocked him down. Fox went for a Phoenix Splash, but Ricochet avoided it. Ricochet then hit a middle rope Phoenix Splash: 1…2…NO! Ricochet then hit a Torture Rack Driver: 1…2…3!
This match was a lot of fun, and I can only imagine what they would be capable of doing now. AR Fox had only just joined the DGUSA/Evolve family at this point, and he has made tremendous strides since this time. Ricochet was already having great matches around this time, but he too is so much better now. I definitely recommend that you check out this match.
Match Rating: ***1/2
