Chuck Taylor vs. Hermit Crab from CHIKARA 2015
Post by Kevin Ford:
Taylor threatens to punch Crab in the face after backing him to the corner, but meets the referee’s request to break clean instead. A long wristlock exchange ends with a kick to the stomach from Crab. Taylor reverses his whip to the ropes. He takes Crab over with a hip toss. He dropkicks Crab before a very brief choke. Taylor admits he got too excited and instead stomps Crab in the corner. Crab sends Taylor to the corner. Taylor bandera’s him to the apron. Crab pinches Taylor in the eyes and then drives his knee into his shoulders. He tries a Boston Crab but gets kicked away. Taylor chops him multiple times. Crab trips him and gets the Boston Crab applied. Taylor grabs the bottom rope. From out of the corner, Taylor takes Crab over with a belly-to-belly suplex. Crab chops Taylor multiple times against the ropes. Taylor weaves under a whip and hits Sole Food. He misses an elbow drop. Crab drills him with a spinebuster for two. Taylor intercepts Crab on the second turnbuckle. Crab fights him off and hits a Naniwa elbow. Crab celebrates the accomplishment, as it was apparently the magic move, but the celebration is ended with a schoolboy roll-up from Taylor, giving Taylor the win at 6:43.
Taylor’s self-commentary made this match, but I had fun seeing Crab develop his character knowing now how he’s progressed. *
