Company: Over The Top Wrestling
Event: Third Year ANNIVERSARY
Venue: Tivoli Theatre, Dublin
OTT turned 3 years old this week and what a 3 years it has been. The company’s meteoric rise has been amazing with them on course to sell out the National Stadium a second time and announced they are running two shows a month next year. To celebrate their birthday they have a very fun looking lineup announced for Dublin.
Preview: OTT Third Year Anniversary (10/07/2017)
Match 1: Jordan Devlin vs El Ligero vs Scotty Davis
This triple threat match has the potential to be a show stealer even with Davis being a late replacement for Bubblegum, Devlin and Ligero are 2 of the best in the UK and Davis is certainly no slouch. Devlin will be going over as he continues his quest for the NLW title but expect high flying and an awesom match here.
Predictions: Jordan Devlin to win
Match 2: Fabulous Nicky & Eddie Dennis vs Curtis Murray & Nathan Martin
Nicky and Dennis is a fun team and the two experienced workers will help the young guys here. Murray and Martin won this spot by impressing the most at Contenders 3 where their tag team match with Scarlett&Graves (Dezmond Xavier & Zachary Wentz) was easily the second best match on the night. Murray has been in an OTT ring twice already facing Jody Fleisch in Belfast and competing in the Cereal Bowl match last month, Martin on the other hand is making his debut and has been really impressive in all 3 of his Contenders matches. High hopes for this match with the talent involved.
Prediction: Eddie Dennis & Fabulous Nicky to win
Match 3: Zack Gibson vs Colt Cabana
Clash of polar opposites with Gibson being the serious one for Cabana to play off for comedy. This will be a very OTT-style match that mixes comedy with good wrestling. With Gibson being protected so far in OTT I dont see his first loss coming against Cabana.
Predicitons: Zack Gibson to win
Match 4: OTT Womens Championship Match: Session Moth Martina (c) vs Veda Scott
Martina makes the first defense of her title against ROH star Scott. With Martina being the only woman left in the women’s division they probably wont take the title off her just yet.
Predictions: Session Moth Martina to win and retain
Match 5: Bobby George Jr. vs Rene Dupree
Dupree former tag team champion in the WWE over 10 years ago is only 33. He returns to OTT after impressing last time out with the highlight being his getting spanked by Martina. BGJ has got over so quickly with the OTT fans who love his darts gimmick. His personal ring announcer is also a highlight of any show. Expect alot of laughs here.
Predictions: Bobby George Jr to win
Match 6: Matt Riddle vs “Speedball”Mike Bailey
King of Bros returns to OTT for the first time since his losing effort to Ryan Smile for the NLW title and he takes on the impressive Bailey in a match that will most likely steal the show. These guys kick hard and Bailey has an impressive arsenal of moves and I have no doubt this could end up as OTT’s Match Of The Year.
Match 7: NLW No Limits Title Match – Mark Haskins (c) vs ACH
Haskins makes his first defence of the NLW title against ACH, for those who dont know ACH is an ex-ROH ans ex-GFW wrestler who is a great high flier and consistently puts on great matches, his opponent Mark Haskins also loves nothing more than outting ona great match. Expect Jordan Devlin to be none too pleased about another import getting a shot before him.
Predictions: Mark Haskins to win and retain
A good looking card for this show along with an announced appearance by CCK who will no doubt put on an impressive match.
