Gresham looked really bad (botches, awkward bumps) in that match. It was fun to watch, but not ***1/2 in my opinion.
Roger Ebert gave the abysmal Tomb Raider 3 out of 4 stars so it's entirely possible I'm off the mark here.
I can't even remember anything about the match which is probably a bad thing to begin with as all trios action blended with each other (except the F.I.S.T matches because they have character). I'm usually on the other side of the argument (underrating matches) and although I'd like to give reasons for why I rated it quite high, I do not have the patience or desire to watch the bout again.
Now I know that people are reading my reviews quite carefully so that's nice.
