David Starr (c) vs Jurn Simmons vs Emil Sitoci vs Cody Rhodes
wXw Shotgun Championship
Turbinenhalle, Oberhausen, Germany
(reviewed 03/19/2017) Less antics-driven than the four-way from the day before, though there are certainly still goofs present here. Most of them revolve around the Massive Product team, which is a more enjoyable focal point to me than ACH’s dancing gimmick. Cody and Sitoci are obvious weak points here, but they spend 90% of the match working Starr, working Jurn, or chilling on the outside, so it’s not a problem. At the end, Sitoci tries hitting Starr with the belt while the referee’s down, but Starr avoids it and argues with the crowd about whether or not he should use it on Sitoci himself, giving Sitoci time to hit him with the Snapmare Driver for the win. Solid little match, a fine midcard match on a show about bigger and better things. Afterwards the crowd gives a standing ovation to a very emotional David Starr, which is a nice moment.
