StarBuck vs. Fit Finlay (SMASH 23)
SMASH Championship is on the line. So, this is my first meeting with SMASH promotion. This is also my first meeting with StarBuck. The story says that Finlay was revealed as the mysterious "King of Terror" for Michael Kovac. It's quite interesting to watch Finlay as a heel here, it's been a long time since he used that hammer, lol. StarBuck seems like a decent wrestler and likeable babyface. Finlay is the fucking man, and he's in charge here, as he controls the major portion of the match. StarBuck's comeback's are good, but Finlay's tactics to regain control are even better. You could clearly see that you cannot fuck with Finlay, because he's gonna invade your promotion and leave with the gold, lol. After some very good and simple wrestling, Finlay wins with the Piledriver to win the SMASH Championship. Finlay wins gold! After the match, Finlay shakes StarBuck's hand, hugs him and - HEADBUTTS him! This is not EVOLVE, and you're not Callihan, StarBuck! TAJIRI and his two guys enter the ring but Finlay smashes them with his ubercool hammer. He's heel, and he's badass, bitches! And that's the setup for SMASH 24, where Finlay and his two buddies (from Turkey, I think) meet TAJIRI and his buddies. Very nice storytelling here. Finlay looks like a fucking boss!
Anyway, the match was very good, not the MOTYC, but still very good. Simple and logical wrestling, with Finlay winning some gold, and it's always a good thing. So.... This was my first meeting with SMASH, and I'm more than satisfied. Finlay got me hooked up, and I hear some great things about their Divas Division (Kana...). So if there's anyone who knows some ***+ matches or stuff like that, please post something.
