Zack Gibson vs “Speedball” Mike Bailey
Cockpit Theatre, Marylebone, Greater London, England, United Kingdom
(reviewed 11/09/2017) It’s not the stellar, MOTY-level classic that I’d hope for when I see the best heel in wrestling and one of the top two or three babyfaces in wrestling mix it up in an environment I love, but this is still quite good. Speedball keeps his worst spotty habits to a minimum here but manages to hit some really exciting moves all the same, all while being this endearing Boy Scout babyface. Gibson gets in on the act too, hitting the craziest move I’ve ever seen from him in a super version of his usual signature. On top of all of that this only goes nine minutes, so it avoids the bloat or drag of other such matches. Great stuff all around. Well worth a watch.
