Sami Callihan vs Jimmy Lloyd – CZW Down With The Sickness 2017

Sami Callihan vs Jimmy Lloyd

09/09/2017

Flyers Skate Zone, Voorhees, New Jersey, United States

(reviewed 09/22/2017) To the surprise of no one, this is pretty nice. Lloyd’s firmly one of the better “young, weird-looking babyfaces” archetypes in the world and he’s not afraid to get real physical and take big bumps, which makes him a great matchup for Callihan. The Worldwide Desperado (sidebar: horrible fucking nickname, right?) is still fairly annoying here with lots of yelling and middle fingers and incessant clapping and whatnot, but the actual wrestling here is quite good. The finish is goofy, with it taking a middle rope piledriver through a table and a pair of rough, unnecessary chair shots to put Lloyd away, but it’s great to see Jimmy get a good showing and take a top guy to the limit, as illustrated by Callihan’s expression after the match.
