The truly brilliant thing about the finish was that while Danielson was able to keep Cattle Mutilation locked on Richards for the entire time, with no problem, Black, who had never applied the hold before, had his hands keep coming unclasped and he eventually had to just say "fuck it" and hit God's Last Gift. Great, realistic, storytelling there as well.
The table spot was great as well because it came out of nowhere. Edwards just snuck up behind Black and kicked him off the rope, and he happened to go through the table. A far cry from the ECW tradition where you set up a table, go to the top rope, and jump through it for a cheap pop. Even if Tyler stopped selling it once he recovered, I can't remember off the top of my head a better use of a table in a wrestling match.
Honestly, I hesitated much less at giving this the full five than I did with Davey-KENTA.
This is the other wrestling section. It's still fake to us.
