David Finley vs. Grim Reefer
Reefer wins a solid match with a frogsplash. Every month, I write about how good Reefer is. He was solid here, too, so I’m going to focus on Finley.
David is a 4th generation wrestler, and son of former WCW and WWE wrester Fit Finley. He looks a lot like his old man, and works like him, too.
David’s technical stuff looked really good. He hit a beautiful northern lights suplex, and a pretty nice floatover suplex, too. He also hit the forearms and stiff-looking shots that you would expect.
He has some things to work on, which mostly come down to fine touches. He could use a more pronounced look, as his gear was kind of generic. He could also stand to show off some more personality in the ring. That will come with time.
I liked what I saw in the ring. I liked what I heard from him in conversation after the show. He has a lot to live up to. But his dad is also responsible for the complete turnaround of women’s wrestling in the United States, so I think it’s safe to say he’s in good hands. I’m looking forward to seeing where he is in a few years.
