Matt Riddle vs WALTER – wXw 16 Carat Gold 2017 Day 3

Matt Riddle vs WALTER

16 Carat Gold Tournament 2017 Semi-Finals


Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany

(reviewed 03/19/2017) Riddle gives WALTER more trouble here than his previous opponents in the tournament (even Starr, honestly), and he has to ground the former UFC star and go after his leg to get a sustained advantage. This includes a pretty gross knee bend against the corner of the apron, the nastiest hold in this series of shows outside AMBITION. Riddle fights back with some mean strikes, but WALTER’s able to go to the leg time and again to stay on top, all while throwing in slams and suplexes to wear the American down, and eventually he’s able to hit a big powerbomb for the win. Not bad, but a little more aimless than most WALTER matches, especially in this tournament specifically.
