Big Daddy Walter & Zack Sabre Jr vs Bullet Club (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows)
World Tag Team Tournament Quarter Finals
Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany
Real basic stuff at the beginning, and it really stinks of wanting to go long without a lot of work. Bullet Club fuck around with the faces, and Walter works over Anderson real easily. It’s weird, because Walter and Zack are working over Anderson real hard, reminding me a lot of early 90’s Jumbo and Fuchi, but they’re meant to be the faces. Bullet Club isolate Zack, and Doc takes out Walter, and Biz Cliz rough up the smallest man in the match. Zack tags out after avoiding a corner splash, and Walter and Doc go at it in a way that indicates the heat is over. Bit of Biz Cliz double teaming, Zack comes back in and gets a double down, but when he tries a dive, Doc scoop slams him on the outside. Walter just gets a big powerbomb on Anderson and they win. Real fucking weird, no swing of momentum, no emotional hope spots, no peril, not even a logical or dramatic finish. Real fucking strange, and easily one of the worse matches I’ve seen this year.
