Jack Gallagher vs. Mr. Excellent from ASCA 2014

With Commentary

Without Commentary

Recap from TJ Hawke:

ASCA reached out to us to see if we would be interested in checking out matches from their company. I like Jack Gallagher so I figured I would watch a match of his.

ASCA is promoting this match on commentary as the best technical wrestler in Italy vs. the best technical wrestler in the United Kingdom. Gallagher was in control to start the match. He targeted the left leg of Excellent. Gallagher applied the Romero Special and then smashed the knees into the mat. Excellent came back by going after the left arm. Gallagher reversed Excellent’s submission into a pinning combination. Gallagher went back after the left leg. Excellent came back by going after the left arm/shoulder again. They started trading strikes. Excellent won that exchange. Excellent went right back to work on the left arm. Gallagher headbutted his way free, but Excellent then went for a cross armbreaker. Gallagher escaped and got the single leg crab on the injured leg! Excellent had to tap out!

What a hidden gem from 2014. Gallagher is someone who is in desperate need of more exposure in 2015. The limb work here was well done, and I loved that it played into the finish. The only thing this match was missing was some key spots where the injured limbs prevented them from executing something.

Match Rating: ***1/2
