Timothy Thatcher vs Tyler Bate
wXw Wrestling Academy, Essen, Germany
(reviewed 05/30/2016) Aww shit, a show full of matches with guys I like, in front of a tiny, intimate German crowd? Sign me the fuck up. Thatcher’s got actual gear on here for once, though it’s black trunks, black kneepads, black AASICS shoes, and white socks up to his knees, so he looks super goofy. This match goes about how you’d imagine, considering the style these two champion. Lots of grappling, lots of gross limbwork, lots of layered, smart selling, great stuff all around. Goes fairly long too, so there’s plenty to dig your teeth into. Don’t watch this unless you’re already a fan of one of these two lads, but if you are, give it a go and hopefully you dig it as much as I did.
