The Leaders of the New School (Zack Sabre Jr & Marty Scurll) vs The Sumerian Death Squad (Tommy End & Michael Dante)
Sumerian Death Squad Produces The End ~ Tommy End’s Final Day in Germany
Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld, Köln, Germany
(reviewed 12/01/2016) This should be fun on some level. I tend to enjoy goodbye matches, and these are four fairly talented guys. The crowd is real jazzed for this match, chanting all sorts of bullshit for their man here at the beginning of his last bout in Germany. Thankfully, they stop chanting and begin cheering (or doing footy chants, which is much better than other forms of chanting) as the match progresses. There’s not too much to this match, really, although it’s quite fun. They begin with around ten minutes of comedy, and Scrull really shines here even though he’s not in a lot of it simply because this is what he does best. After that, the Sumerian Death Squad isolates Scurll for a short time before the LDRS do the same to Dante, working over his arm. Soon things break down into a big four-way spotfest back and forth, and Scurll forces Dante to tap out to the crossface chickenwing. Nothing special, but enjoyable all the same.
