Big Daddy Walter vs Timothy Thatcher – wXw AMBITION 7

Big Daddy Walter vs Timothy Thatcher

AMBITION 7 Tournament First Round Match

03/12/2016

Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany

(reviewed 01/17/2017) Great grapplefucking here, and shoot style-oriented grapplefucking at that, which is something of rarity in the west. It’s amazing how technically-based Walter is here, as I’m used to him playing to his size mostly, but against a fellow giant like Thatcher, he has to change up his game plan. Still, these two stick to their bread and butter of big boy strikes and suplexes, feeling each other out on the mat. Thatcher’s struggle to avoid a single leg crab at one point is some of the most compelling pro wrestling I’ve seen in weeks. In the end, he endures a few mean slams from Walter (right on his head!) to crank back on a cross armbreaker to win the match. Lovely stuff here, just what the doctor ordered.
