Recap from TJ Hawke:
They traded holds and pinning combinations early. Dar nearly caught Davey with a couple of pinning combinations, and Davey even left the ring at one point. Davey managed to send Dar to the floor. Davey then killed him with a running punt from the apron. They traded kicks on the floor. Davey won that exchange. Davey the gave him a Yakuza on the floor through some random piece of barricade on the floor. Apparently, Davey knocked over the hardcam, and they had to fix it. They made their way back to the ring, and Davey worked him over. Davey went for the handspring enzuigiri, but Dar met him with a dropkick. Dar followed that up with a tope suicida. Dar hit a Yakuza. Back in the ring, Dar hit a back suplex for a nearfall. Davey came back with a double stomp. Davey then hit a diving headbutt: 1…2…NO! Davey got a cross armbreaker, but Dar made the ropes. Davey hit an alarm kick. Dar hit a Brogue Kick. Davey came back with a lariat and a dragon suplex: 1…2…NO! Davey went for another punt off the apron, but Dar kicked out Davey’s leg. Dar came back with a double stomp on Davey’s leg. Dar then got the kneebar on the injured leg. Davey reversed that into a sharpshooter. Dar reversed that into a small package: 1…2…NO! Dar came back with a Tidal Wave: 1…2…NO! Kneebar from Dar! This match is going too long. Davey hit a superplex, and then a Falcon Arrow. Davey locked in the cross armbreaker. Dar taps out!
Davey put over Dar huge after the match.
I ended up being quite disappointed in this match. It started out really well, but the closing minutes left me cold. The match simply went too long for no good reason, which is a shame because it could have been a really strong 15 minute match. Still though, Noam Dar is one of professional wrestling’s brightest prospects, and it’s cool that he got this opportunity. Davey worked hard, but he got very “Davey” in the last ten minutes. Sometimes that works, but it did not work this time.
Match Rating: ***1/4
