You can’t ever expect Ospreay and Riddle NOT to have an awesome match. This OTT match played off their EVOLVE match from a month prior, but they didn’t have the drama of Will’s neck to build off of this time around. That said, both men brought a considerable amount of intensity and urgency to beat the hell out of each other in hard strikes and crazy moves. Loved the storytelling towards the end with Riddle’s urgency backfiring on him as it led to Ospreay getting his win back from the former, ****1/2.

By far the worst match in their trilogy. Too long, too much Ospreay on the offense & too many "cute" "epic" sequences. Super generic indy 50/50 crap. The only saving grace of the thing was that Riddle on the offense is always a joy. **

Really liked this match a lot and was a fitting conclusion to this "trilogy" (we all know there will be more). The action got a little too fast-paced at times, but both guys did a great job selling the damage and fatigue. Ospreay in particular has done a tremendous job selling since the Sakura Genesis match with Marty and has really come into his own as a babyface. I also loved the learned psychology as Ospreay would not allow himself to be overwhelmed early like the first two matches and knew he needed to be just as aggressive as Riddle to keep up. Seeing frequent opponents "wise up" and implement a better gameplan is one of my favorite things in wrestling, and it made for an extremely satisfying conclusion with Ospreay finally getting that elusive win.

 

Now it's Mike Bailey's turn. ****1/4.
