Zack Gibson (c) vs Rampage Brown
Masonic Guild Hall, Stockport, Greater Manchester, England, United Kingdom
(reviewed 10/26/2017) One of those matches that would be impossible for me not to like simply based on the matchup. They certainly try their hardest to make me not like it, what with a James Drake run-in, belt shot shenanigans, and a return and subsequent turn from Tyson T-Bone, but the actual bulk of this match is real good, lots of tight, focused, bare bones wrestling from two of the guys in the UK I like most. Along with all that one of the commentators makes a note before the match that Gibson is like Donald Trump or Brexit: you don’t have to like it but you have to accept it. That certainly drags this down a fair bit, but despite all these weighty faults, I found myself enjoying this more than not. Bit disappointed by all the bullshit, sure, but I can’t say that I expect more from most indie feds these days.
