Alpha Kevin vs Marius van Beethoven – wXw 16 Carat Gold 2017 Day 3

Alpha Kevin vs Marius Von Beethoven

No Ropes Match


Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany

(reviewed 03/19/2017) I wasn’t initially going to review this match, but once it got going it drew me in and I thought it was worth a review. These lads really lay into each other here, doing some crazy things. They take a lot of bumps at the edge of the ring, taking advantage of the no ropes gimmick that strangely includes a falls count anywhere stipulation, and at one point Kevin misses a tope that sends him hard into the third row of chairs. Additionally Beethoven eats a few mean kendo stick shots right to the head and a punch from Kevin through a chair in one of the funniest moments I’ve seen lately in wrestling. They do well to make this match feel like an escalation of their previous matches together, which isn’t always an easy thing to do. Eventually Kevin picks up the win with a pretty nutty package piledriver off the apron through a table. Real hoot of a hardcore match here and a good blowoff to this feud.
