Recap from TJ Hawke:
The League made an open challenge to the world. They didn’t like any of the offers, and they tried to declare themselves the winners by default. That didn’t sit well with Heidi, so this was arranged. Heidi and Patricks have never been a tag team before, so the League obviously have the advantage.
Billy Roc is the referee for the match, as with all Class Wars matches. The League jumped the tecnicos at the start, but Heidi and Patricks actually got the advantage fairly quickly. Patricks hit Bentley with a tope suicida. That caused Bentley to be sandwiched into the wall of the school. Bentley immediately came back on Patricks with a back suplex on the floor. A wrestler eating a plancha and then immediately coming back on the wrestler who hit the dive is a big pet peeve of mine. The League then started to work over Heidi in the ring. Cassidy and Bentley were not 100% on the same page when it came to how exactly to beat down Heidi. The commentator mentioned that there are rumors that Bentley is now training with Billy Roc. This heat segment went on for a while, as Patricks was nowhere in sight. Patricks finally recovered and just went into the ring without tagging (or Heidi leaving the ring). Weird. He hit a springboard dropkick on Cassidy. He attacked Bentley too. Patricks then had the look of a mad man as he saw something off screen. He left the ring and the building. Cassidy hit Heidi with a Hand Grenade and Bentley hit the Reed Awakening: 1…2…3.
The camera checked in outside to find a knocked out Dale Patricks. The camera pulled out to reveal “Big” Sue Jackson!
I thought this was a solid match that accomplished several goals. The League are not a perfectly happy family, but they are still a well-oiled machine. Heidi was able to survive a lot of League offense and showed that she can hang with the guys. Based on that, Class Wars seems to be following Chikara’s direction when it comes to inter-gender wrestling, which is something I am very happy about. The match also lead to the re-introduction of “Big” Sue Jackson who broke his wrist in April in a Chikara match. While all of those things are definitely positives, the problem with this match is that there is very little ephemeral value to the actual match. The story of the actual wrestling match was incomplete as Dale Patricks just left the match before the end. The long-term positives of the match make up for that, but I hope the next Class Wars match provides some more immediate satisfaction from the actual match (while also continuing the storylines).
