You can just look at my recap to tell how awesome this match is. Zack and Togo told a amazing story with Zack mostly dominating Togo in the ground game but the Veteran experience of Togo and the work on the Neck gave Togo the advantage throughout the match. The body parts worked in this match continued to play in the story and made complete sense in the ending. Great to see Togo put over Zack so well! Looking forward to Zack coming back to the states!
Thoughts from TJ Hawke:
DICKMANIA IS RUNNING WILD~! This is a cool matchup, and I’m really glad that wXw made it available for free. Togo was a really great wrestler, and I was glad that he went on a retirement world tour. I don’t think this match was as good as his PWG match with El Generico, but this was pretty damn entertaining. Easy recommendation.
Match Rating: ***1/2
