Select Match Reviews: 16 Carat Pt.2
Matches from wXw 16 Carat Gold Night Two
1.Pentagon vs Ilja ****
2.Fenix vs WALTER ****
3.wXw World Title: Absolute Andy(c) vs Gunns ***1/2
wXw nailed it here with this very memorable night of action. The two tournament matches were fantastic 10 minute epics and the main event was a fun, but flawed, story that paid off nicely.
The first pull saw fan favorites, Penta and Ilja, working their asses off in a wildly entertaining sprint. One of the best Pentagon singles matches we have gotten in a while.
Fenix and WALTER sold the size differences perfectly, going all in. I would love a rematch if WWE allows it.
The championship match had problems, mainly a general sloppiness throughout and some pacing issues, but the story work and a hot crowd kept it in the recommendable range. The finish looks sets up a lot for the future, and we will have to wait and see what the German HHH has up his sleeve next.
I am in the middle of a move so I won't be rambling too much, but you should really check these out. I actually won't be posting much at all until I arrive at the new place. Just a heads up.
