Tommy End vs. El Ligero from PROGRESS Wrestling 2014

Post by TJ Hawke:

End cut off Ligero early and then worked him over. Ligero came back and got a nearfall with a diving crossbody. They went back and forth. End hit a Meteora. Ligero hit an enzuigiri. End hit a roundhouse kick. Ligero went for the springboard DDT, but he ate another roundhouse for his trouble. Brainbuster from End: 1…2…NO! End hit a bridging German for a nearfall. Ligero avoided a double stomp and then reversed a Lionsault into an Ace Crusher. Ligero hit a Superfly Splash: 1…2…Michael Gilbert pulled Ligero out of the ring. Unbelievable, Jeff.

Ligero won via disqualification, but he insisted on re-starting the match. End immediately got a small package: 1…2…NO! End got a Dragon Sleeper, and Ligero had to tap out.

Michael Gilbert applied a guillotine to Ligero after the match.

Much like the last match, this is a case of PROGRESS not being able to get out of their own way. For a company with so much talent in the ring, they really should not be holding their talent back like this. Wrestlers are capable of telling stories in the ring. I really am growing to despise when companies artificially insert conflict into an art form that can so easily breed conflict in an organic way. The match itself was good until the finish.

Match Rating: **1/2
