Recap from TJ Hawke:
This is the second level in the SEVEN LEVELS OF HATE between Pearce and Cabana. The first level was a ‘First Blood’ match in NWA Hollywood that Cabana won. This is a Street Fight for Colt’s NWA Title. Pearce cut a promo before the match. I don’t get people who don’t like Pearce promos.
Pearce jawed with a lot of ringside fans. Cabana defended them. Pearce jumped Cabana during the ring introductions. Colt made a comeback using a series of strikes. They ended up on the floor, with Colt remaining in control. Cabana rolled Pearce back into the ring. Colt started interracting with the fans, which allowed Pearce to take Colt out with a tope suicida. Pearce was in control after that. Pearce body slammed Colt on a table. Pearce then did a standing elbow drop onto Colt to break the table. Back in the ring, Pearce hit a lariat for a nearfall. Pearce pulled out the NWA belt. Colt avoided a shot, and he then hit Pearce in the face with the ten pounds of gold. Pearce’s forehead got busted open. Colt delivered multiple strikes to Pearce’s forehead. Colt hit a big lariat for a nearfall. Colt then hit a top rope moonsault: 1…2…NO! Colt got a chair in the ring, but Pearce then hit Colt with a DDT on the chair. Pearce put the chair in the turnbuckle, but Colt managed to send Pearce into the chair face-first. Colt then locked in the Billy Goat’s Curse! Pearce passed out! Colt wins!
I really enjoyed this match and it was a step up from their First Blood match. Both guys sold the hatred perfectly, and they truly made this match seem like a fate. These guys are fucking professionals. Check out all their matches.
Match Rating: ***1/2
