Low Ki vs. Necro Butcher from IWA-MS’s We’re No Joke! (2006)

Recap from TJ Hawke:

I’ve somehow never seen this one.

Ki attacked Necro from behind to start the match. The crowd then covered them in streamers. They were viciously brawling on the floor for a while. Ki was building some momentum in the ring after a several minutes of that. They did a chop exchange that Ki won after chops of the Mongolian variety. Ki was in full control, and he set up a table in the corner. Necro went to powerbomb Ki through the table, but Ki somehow reversed it into a double stomp. Ki went for the Tidal Wave, but Necro killed him with a punch to the face. Necro made a comeback. Ki finally put a stop to that with a brutal double stomp. Necro came back with a Tiger Bomb. They battled on the turnbuckle closest to the table setup. Necro ended up stuck in the tree of woe and on the table….DOUBLE STOMP: 1…2…NO! DRAGON SLEEPER! Necro passed out, and Bryce Remsburg called for the bell!

The match was excessive but in a manner I found compelling as opposed to eye-roll inducing. Both guys worked their asses off to deliver a fittingly brutal match in a matchup of styles that I don’t find to be as clashing as one would assume at first glance. Sure, Ki could be considered a technical wrestler at times, and the match would have suffered if he wrestled in that fashion. He had long since proven though at this point to be an extremely effective brawler, and it wasn’t in the least bit surprising to me that these two gelled together. The match just needed a slightly more organic flow for me to throw even more praise on it. Then again, the match may have lost some of its luster if it did not feel chaotic the whole time.

Match Rating: ***3/4
