Zack Gibson (c) vs Sam Bailey
53Two Theatre, Manchester, England, United Kingdom
(reviewed 10/26/2017) Zack Gibson wrestles a well-liked local babyface! Always a recipe for a solid match. Unlike the title match the previous month against Rampage Brown, this one doesn’t have tedious, typical heel overbooking shenanigans and benefits greatly from it, though there is a quick Dusty finish that other people might dislike more than me. Bailey’s not quite as enjoyable as Rampage but doesn’t have to work on top quite as much and gives Gibson an opportunity to stretch his legs as a heel, which makes for lots of good heat here and a few fun comebacks.
