Philadelphia, PA

This match is on the Best of 2005 DVD, which is available for purchase at Smart Mark Video.  For a more informed opinion on this match, check out Kevin Ford’s review.

Recap from TJ Hawke:

This was a Best 2 out of 3 Falls match. It started slowly  until Jigsaw did some nifty armdrags. Jigsaw then went to dive to the floor for a hurricanrana, but they botched it. It sort of looked like a seated senton though, which was more brutal looking at least. Back in the ring, Jigsaw went for a springboard move, but Wicked caught him with a big boot. Wicked then went to work on him. Wicked caught him out of nowhere with a fancy pinning combination: 1…2…3!

Wicked is up one fall to none.

Wicked hit Jigsaw with a yakuza to the back of the head before the second fall started. Wicked was then in control for a while. Wicked hit the Go-to-Sleep Hollow. Wicked then went for La Magistral, but Jigsaw reversed it into his own La Magistral: 1…2…3

They are tied at one fall a piece.

Jigsaw started the third fall with a superkick and then a Fosbury Flop. They went back and forth in the ring. Wicked blocked Jigsaw’s leaping ‘rana and then hit the MOONSAULT DOUBLE STOMP: 1…2…NO! WOW! Jigsaw came back with a ghetto stomp, the leaping ‘rana, and the guillotine legdrop: 1…2…NO! Wicked then murderized Jigsaw with the reverse ‘rana: 1…2…NO! That’s how he beat Jigsaw earlier in the year! Jig ‘n’ Tonic: 1…2…3!

I enjoyed this more than their previous match on the set. The substance of the match (and lack of crazy heat) kind of put a ceiling in my investment in it, but I greatly appreciated the craziness of it all. They pulled out a bunch of nutty spots, and I enjoyed the match quite a bit as a result.

Match Rating: ***1/4
