Fit Finlay Vs. Davey Richards - AAW Scars and Stripes

First AAW match I've straight-up loved. Didn't know what to expect since Richards has been unreliable this year and Finlay's indy stuff has been a mixed bag. They wrestled it very basic, which actually played to both their strengths. Their traditional spots, like Finlay tying on the legs, works so much better when the opponent is going through mat-wrestling minutia, too. Richards has done that spot where he fires up and kicks the guy a bunch in the corner many times, but I bought the emotion against Finlay. They really complimented each other and never went to overkill territory. Rather than using the Tombstone as a big spot, Richards feared it and prepared for it, and the Ankle Lock worked as something dangerous to come back with.

I'd recommend trying out some BJW, it has got a lot of hype recently and has had some great matches in recent times.


Some Puroresu YouTube Channels:

KingsRoadJapan - AJPW

ProWrestlingAARK - NOAH

BiggestJapan - BJW

KOfficeDRing - Kensuke Office / Diamond Ring

MiscPuro - Stuff that doesn't have it's own channel (Osaka Pro, Zero-1, DDT, MUGA & others)

Emproer - Michinoku Pro

StrongStyleJapan - NJPW

My top 3 or 4 right now would be Okada/Naito, Okada/'Hashi, Brock/Cena & prolly Richards/Elgin though that was mainly just because I got caught up in the match & really bought that Elgin was gonna win. But December is still p. far away, so I'll worry about it all in December. :-)

Loved the ladder match. Daniels got murdered for the whole thing and played a great underdog heel. Joe was a beast. Styles was less obtrusive than I expected, but still did some great stuff. Them wedging Daniels in the ladder was priceless.
