Timothy Thatcher vs. Darius Carter from Beyond Wrestling 2015
Considering that Thatcher was initially booked against Nick Gage in a blatant attempt to pander to the Pro Wrestling Only crowd, Darius Carter was a poor as fuck replacement opponent. Carter has some good matches over the years, but you really should be delivering a higher profile replacement in this sort of situation.
The match itself was solid if unexciting. I like Timothy Thatcher more than some and but a lot less than his most vocal supporters. He catered to my tastes more than usual with what he did here by continuously going after Carter’s left arm. That paid off as he was able to get a Fujiwara armbar at the end to escape with a victory. Carter’s work sandwiched in between there did not do much for me. Carter has some potential in the #grapplefuck world, but this was not the breakout performance that it needed to be. (**1/2)
