For Hollis, I decided to look at his first-round match from the 2015 Super 8 tournament. He faced off against BJ Hancock.
This was yet another solid match that I have seen because of this project. The premise of the match is pretty simple: Hollis injures his left leg early in the match, and Hancock then spends the rest of the relentlessly going after it. Hollis probably could have stood to not rely on his left leg so much afterwards to really put Hancock’s work over. However, it was a short match, and he usually was in visible pain as soon as he completed the move. That came up again with the finish as Hollis hit a standing sliced bread #2 for the win. Again, he ideally would not be doing something like that when the story of the match is based around an injured leg. It’s not the end of the world, but it’s a knock on the match for me. Solid stuff overall that is worth checking out for sure if you have an interest in either wrestler. (**3/4)
