Rush vs Terrible
One thing I can take from this viewing is that Rush can be pretty good, which surprised me as he's utter garbage from what I've seen from him in NJPW. He's great at playing a cocky little shithead and was just full of charisma. My main gripe of this match was the face/heel dynamic. They tried to work the match with both guys working heel and it didn't sit well with me. There were times when a wrestler would build for a comeback only to blasted with boos from the crowd and when he got that comeback, he'd start his own heelish control segment. It's all very odd to me. Both guys can work very well; their timing during some of the spots and sequences was impeccable, but I just think the face/heel dynamic was just too much to pull off. I wasn't quite as high on this as Rah. but it was overall a very enjoyable match. Oh, I also loved the whole schtick with the heel referee turning on Rush.
