Arik Cannon vs. Markus Crane from ICW’s 420 Classic 2014
Review by Reed Benson:
This is a very basic indy (Editor’s Note: Did it take place in Indianapolis?) match. If you like psychology and selling, it’s not for you. If you like a small crowd being pleased by a wrestler taking a couple drinks of beer during the match, then this is your thing. There are moves. There’s a clear good guy and a clear bad guy. There’s a little lewd chicanery near the beginning. The moves build logically, and the ending is believable.
Crane is the heel, Cannon is the face, but there’s not much depth beyond that. The moves are well executed, I guess. Crane does Delerious’ old Shadows Over Hell splash and a somersault thing in the corner. Cannon does a tree of woe dropkick and an exploder. Cannon wins after a buckle bomb, a superkick, and a brainbuster. That’s literally all I remember.
If I could send my past self a tweet, I’d say, “@dedwyre Don’t bother watching this. There’s nothing compelling, just like any other Arik Cannon match outside of Chikara.”
