Recap from TJ Hawke:
The Young Bucks came out to “MmmBop!” Matt got a headlock and said, “This is for you, Dixie!” Mack escaped and got a headlock of his own. Matt escaped, but Mack hit some knees to the back and a blockbuster to a seated Matt. Matt sent Mack to the outside, and he then hit a running dropkick through the ropes. Matt started to get the heat after that. Back in the ring, Mack came back with a powerslam, but Matt sent him into a turnbuckle to cut him off. Mack came back with some lariats and a Stinger Splash. Mack followed that with the House Party. T-Bone from Mack: 1…2…NO! Mack then hit the Samoan Drop and a standing moonsault: 1…2…NO! Matt came back with a spear and a big German suplex: 1…2…NO! Mack hit a pumphandle slam: 1…2…NO! Mack tried for Chocolate Thunder, but Matt reversed it with a hurricanrana. Matt then hit three kneeling superkicks: 1…2…3! I can’t understate how much better the Bucks are (already one of the best teams in the world) with Hanson playing as their music. Matt tried to shake Mack’s hand, but then he just gave him another kneeling superkick.
This was an enjoyable match that showed Mack at an earlier stage of his career. He’s improved a lot since then. The Young Bucks are obviously much better as a tag team, but I wish more promotions gave them chances at singles matches.
Thoughts from Reggie Gaines:
First of all, I am very happy we finally have a Willie Mack match on FreeProWrestling.com. It’s also very cool to have more matches from The Young Bucks, even though it’s only one half, as they are the best tag team in California and one of the best tag teams in the world. This is a good little match with Mack showing off some of his athletic prowess, trying to out speed the very quick Jackson. Jackson is in control for most of the match, grounding Mack so that he can’t showcase his high flying offense. Mack gets in some offense, doing his tribute to the Human Tornado with some dancing kicks in the corner followed by the splits to the crotch. Mack hits his signature Samoan Drop/Nip up Moonsault spot for 2. Jackson counters with a Spear, a running big boot, and a release German Suplex for a near fall. Mack lands a cradle sit out slam for another near fall. Jackson counters a Powerbomb with a hurricanrana and nails Mack with several superkicks (which I hate haha) for the win.
Two of California’s finest wrestlers going one on one for your enjoyment. I hope my man Willie Mack goes very far in the “JLIT” tourney and I hope more companies book this man.
