John Klinger vs Paul London
16 Carat Gold Tournament 2017 First Round
Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany
(reviewed 03/16/2017) I’m not a fan of London and Bad Bones oddly gets a lot of heat in Oberhausen, so I’m tentative about this match. Thankfully London brings the effort and Klinger sort of plays up to his heel tendencies. Sadly, the match is probably the least heated of the night as far as the crowd goes, as they’re mostly quiet after yelling at Klinger a bit. Still, London’s underdog shtick wins them back, leading to a pair of SSPs for a good nearfall before Klinger puts him down with some of his signatures and the Wrecking Ball Knees.
