Jimmy Havoc (c) vs Will Ospreay
Electric Ballroom, Camden, Greater London, England, United Kingdom
Pretty solid little match. Real mean. Ospreay is fiery, maybe a little too much at times, with no real subtlety to what he does, but Havoc is the perfect kind of guy to bump around for him and also keep him grounded. Pretty cool sequence around the rolling elbow and Acid Rainmaker towards the end that I really liked. Ospreay goes up to the top towards the end and takes too long, and when Havoc jumps into the ropes, Ospreay comes down right on his head and neck, which was gross. Havoc unhooks the top rope and chokes Ospreay with it, which I always love. Mostly a watered-down version of what they’d do at 18 and 20, but the story is clear and fun to watch and leaves me wanting more.
