Eddie Dennis vs. Michael Gilbert from PROGRESS Wrestling 2014

Post by TJ Hawke:

I believe this is Gilbert’s debut in PROGRESS. Considering I’ve seen every PROGRESS show, I should know that. Dennis is one half of the tag team champions.

Gilbert formerly went by Mikey Whiplash, but I still do not remember whether or not he worked PROGRESS before. Eddie Dennis then cut a promo that I barely understood. Actually, I did not understand it all. Dennis decided that Gilbert’s name change gave him permission to turn into “Eddie Mysterio, Jr.” for the match. He put on a Rey Mysterio ask. Gilbert was not pleased.

Gilbert was very frustrated that Dennis refused to be serious. Gilbert slowed things down and then ripped off Dennis’ mask. That’s a disqualification! Dennis accidentally got kicked in the balls during a shoulder tackle. Gilbert was in control for a while. This went on for a very long time. He was targeting Dennis’ left leg. Dennis started a weak comeback, but Gilbert came right back with a big lariat. Gilbert mocked him and put the Rey Mysterio mask on him. Dennis snapped off a hurricanrana and then hit the 61Knee: 1…2…NO! Gilbert reversed an O’Connor Roll into his own bridging pin combination: 1…2…3

I was not a fan of the execution of this match. I say that because the story idea (overly serious wrestler vs. wrestler who likes to have fun) is amusing in theory. It just went too long and had too much dead time. Dennis is a very entertaining wrestling that I enjoy a great deal, but this turned out to be a waste of his talents.

Match Rating: *1/2
