Juan Francisco de Coronado vs Jonathan Gresham
The Wrestle Factory, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
(reviewed 07/19/2018) You might be shocked to learn that when two technical wrestlers meet up and one of them happens to be Jonathan Gresham, it results in a pretty good match. Simple formula here, as Gresham’s the more skilled of the two grapplers but his smaller size and Juan’s propensity to play dirty leaves him at a disadvantage. Each man targets a part of the body and goes to town, doing what they can to avoid the other man’s offense, and it’s just a straightforwardly good wrestling match. Fun to see Juan in a situation in which he needs to score a win for his promotion and pulls out a few unconventional tricks in order to do so, cheered on by a tentatively appreciative crowd.
