Black Taurus vs Darby Allin
Grand Ballroom, New York City, New York, United States
(reviewed 07/28/2019) Boy, I wish Darby worked luchadors more or just moved to Mexico full-time. Taurus does well to rein in some of his worst habits and also make his comically huge bumping make a little sense here, as he just steamrolls the kid to the point that he can’t dig into his Evanescence music video acting and hits him hard enough with everything to actually force big bumps. Along the way both guys string together some lovely lucha sequences and a few great dives, which is all you can really ask for on a half-baked variety show like this. Won’t be shocked if this is my favorite Darby match of the year.
