Matt Riddle (c) vs Timothy Thatcher vs WALTER
PROGRESS Atlas Championship
Alexandra Palace, Haringey, Greater London, England, United Kingdom
(reviewed 10/04/2017) This match works better than I’d have imagined but not quite as good as I’d hoped for. All three men are going at it fast and furious here, frantically scrambling to take the others out and to score the pinfall. This translates to about 12, 13 minutes of big guys hitting each other and throwing each other around, which is certainly tons of fun but would get increasingly tedious if there was literally any more of it, I think. Thatcher adapts to this pace even better than he has in the past and is a highlight here, especially as WALTER falters in a few odd moments and Riddle is, well, Riddle. I’d prefer something a little more methodical and structured, but for what this is it’s a hell of a match and something well worth watching if you’re at all interested in it.
