And most of them are stupid as hell to me honestly.
This match was more than clichés, it was about an hour of every indy crime in the book. Apart from somebody having their legs, knees and ankles worked over for nearly 20 minutes then doing highly athletic moves pell mell for almost another 40 (!!!), it set the land speed record for thigh slapping, super kicks and kicks and knees to the face as wimpy transition moves, poison ranas, Canadian Destroyers, nuclear bomb finishers from the top rope and off of ladders getting kicked out of for the "fighting spirit epic moment", the crowd going into business for itself by chanting hokey garbage all night, the wrestlers falling from a high height through a table for no particular reason to end the match, with a total tryhard, pop culture referencing cornball of an announcer saying a cheesy catchphrase after the Falling Through A Table Spot, which was, I kid you not, "Mama effing mia!"
There are so many who bought the glitz and the glam and the hype and the WWE brand on this. If anybody but WWE put this hour long indy felony
on as a main event for their title, almost everybody who saw it would be laughing like hyenas over this and consider the match to be almost parody of Meltzer Bait indyriffic bilge, of 2010s wrestling at its most overindulgent and preposterous. Oh, no. Can't have that.. But since its guys people like in a company they know, its BAY BAY and a 5+ star classic.
I thought their last match was an atrocity. This one makes Cole/Gargano 2 look like a tasteful masterpiece. This match was fuckin' clownshoes.
