Keith Lee's another guy who shouldn't last long on the indies. I'm not a huge fan of WALTER, and I think I saw these two wrestle at BOLA this year and came away not blown away, but at the same time impressed at how well these two big guys worked together. I think the bar of expectation was set too high for me on WALTER considering the company he kept in that tourney (Jeff Cobb, Keith Lee, Brian Cage, Michael Elgin, and even Dijack and Jonah Rock to a degree) , so I'm sure I'd enjoy this hoss battle more than the admittedly good BoLA one. He was just outclassed in a bracket of amazing big men in PWG, as most people are often out-classed during their first PWG appearance.
I don't think I've ever seen Tracy Williams before, but I like Jaka and I like Henry and Drake. I'm surprised James Drake isn't bigger than he already is. I had the pleasure of seeing him three times in one weekend and the guy never puts on the breaks or goes half-assed. Henry's OK, but of the two I think Drake has more consistently great matches. Again, should be brutal
Riddle vs Yehi sounds brutal. I'm sure it will be a dark horse favorite on the show for many. I don't hate Riddle, but nothing he does warrants his hype to me. I've seen Fred Yehi work twice at a live event now and both times he had me cringing for all the right reasons. He has some brutal strikes and even more effective stomps. Should be a stiff encounter.
ZSJ vs DJZ feels very random to me as a pairing, but I think it will work. While Zima's not a mat techtition like Zack, DJ does have a few moves that he likes to string together in a really fluid and pretty way. Again, like with Kincaid,the pacing and quality of this match rests on Sabre's mood and whether or not he brings his work boots or the greatest hits. Could be excellent though.
Of this lineup, I only know Austin Theory, who is a prodigy in-ring. Very innovative, never gives the same match twice,and pulls out something new every time. I hope he gets the platform to show his innovative style off in this triple threat
Kincaid vs AR Fox should be interesting. Jason's the type of guy I've seen perform multiple times and it's rare for me that he hits the mark, but when he does he's one of the best grapplers out there. I think he'll be able to work Fox's speed,but I don't know if it's a matter of motivation or inconsistency in general, but Jason Kincaid's mood will be the deciding factor in if this match is good.
