Honestly? It was a spot-fest, but I thought it was fun. Really fun. Maybe because I don't hate the Briscoes or something.
My Briscoe hate is not blind. They were my favorite wrestlers for a good one year period from summer 06 until fall 07. Then I started realizing how non unique the matches become and how little they do to make their opponents look good.
Think about how that match with Kid and Saito could have been. Look at what it was. Saito was a non-factor most of the match and Kid was their bitch. It was just Briscoes doing moves in an incredibly hot little gymnasium.
A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.
