Matt Riddle vs “Speedball” Mike Bailey – wXw 16 Carat Gold 2017 Day 2

Matt Riddle vs “Speedball” Mike Bailey

16 Carat Gold Tournament 2017 Quarter-Finals

03/11/2017

Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany

(reviewed 03/19/2017) These two had an AMBITION match only a few hours before this, so I’m curious to see how much they’re able to change it up here. Funny enough, they start off fairly shoot-oriented, though quickly they transition into more of an indie-oriented pro wrestling match, and one that’s a fair bit faster and tighter than usual. I usually like their stuff together, but this match feels much more refined on a technical level, even if it suffers from the sorts of problems these two have in their matches. Still, on a pure action level, you’d be hard-pressed to find something better than this on any show these days. Avoiding the shooting star kneedrop, Riddle slaps on the Bromission for the win in this very nice eight minute sprint.
