WWE Cruiserweight Classic August 11, 2016 Review
Gran Metalik defeated Tajiri
Tajiri and Metalik put on a showcase of strong style and lucha libre counters. The two went toe to toe with lucha style offense at first, then turned into something altogether new. They meshed well and I was absolutely impressed with how good the two worked together. Tajiri, I thought was going to win, but nope, it was the young Mexican that got the win. I hope that the WWE doesn’t sour on the Lucha Libre guys like they have on the main roster, it’s been terrible there. This was great though.
Match Rating: 3 out of 5
Kota Ibushi defeated Cedric Alexander
This was an epic battle. The two worked very well together, and I wasn’t sold at first. But mid-way through the match, the in ring psychology of these two shown. Someone actually got out of the way of a high flyer. Someone actually reversed the through the ropes options, and the two tradred counters quite well. Alexander is a superstar in my book. There was an incredible brainbuster towards the end that sold me on this one. The brainbuster that Alexander gave Ibushi was enough to give him a contract in my book. Ibushi got the win, but not without enduring one of the hardest fought battles I’ve ever seen in WWE in a long time. Not since Ziggler versus Rey Mysterio at Night of Champions have I’ve seen something this grand.
