Recap from TJ Hawke:
Davey was ROH World Champ at the time of this match. Big match feel in the crowd. They traded holds to start. The commentators really tried to get Gallagher and the promotion over by Gallagher being able to keep up with Davey. Gallagher hit a dropkick and Davey went to the floor to rest. Davey got back in the ring and managed to cut Gallagher off briefly. They traded some strikes. Davey won that exchange with a sole butt. Davey went for a diving headbutt, but Gallagher avoided it and made a comeback. Gallagher got a cross armbreaker, but Davey immediately got in the ropes to break the hold. Gallagher hit a butterfly suplex for a nearfall. Gallagher then hit a diving headbutt: 1…2…NO! Gallagher locked in the cross armbreaker again, but Davey escaped and got the ankle lock. Gallagher made the ropes. Davey hit a dragon srew legwhip in the ropes. Davey followed that with a missile dropkick: 1…2…NO! Ankle lock from Davey. Gallagher reversed that into a pinning combination for a nearfall. Lariat from Davey. Bridging German suplex: 1….2…NO! Kimura from Gallagher! Davey reversed it into an ankle lock. Gallagher rolled through, but Davey immediately hit a running soccer kick. Brainbuster from Davey: 1…2…NO! Davey then hit a Buzzsaw kick for another nearfall. Davey then hit a sliding buzzsaw kick: 1…2…3!
This may surprise you, but Davey cut a promo putting over his opponent after the match. Davey asked for a rematch.
Heck of a match here. Davey had a string of good matches on the undercards of lower profile shows, and this match was no exception. I went into the match not knowing anything about Jack Gallagher, but I’m definitely interested in seeing more of him going forward. Also, I enjoyed the environment and the enthusiasm of the commentators, so FSW made a good first impression on me all around.
Match Rating: ***1/2
