Hartford, CT – 8.24.2007
Hallowicked vs. Chris Hero
Sweet N’ Sour Inc. (Larry Sweeney, Sara Del Rey & Bobby Dempsey) is in Hero’s corner. We start with a wristlock exchange. Hero shoulder blocks Hallowicked down and shows off. Hallowicked uses the ropes for an armdrag and mocks Hero’s knee walk. He uses the ropes for another armdrag then comes off Hero’s shoulders with a neckdrag and another armdrag. Hero breaks a wristlock and does some cartwheels and flips. While he and Dempsey are doing squats on the floor, Hallowicked suicide dives onto them. In the ring he throws some chops. Hero delivers a forearm and a boot to the side of the head. Hero gets two with a senton. Hero traps the head and left arm. Hallowicked escapes and rolls Hero up for two. Hero blocks a yakuza kick and gets two with a German suplex. Same goes for a slingshot stomp. Hallowicked avoids a corner attack and nails the yakuza kick. He lays in some chops. He tilt-a-whirls into a roll-up. Hero kicks out but takes a Rydeen Bomb. Hero kicks out of that too. He boots Hallowicked to block the step-up enzuigiri. Hallowicked gives him another Rydeen Bomb for two. Hero nails a rolling elbow. The Hero’s Welcome gets him the win at 7:31. I’m really surprised how much offense Hallowicked got in. In fact, it almost made Hero look lucky to sneak in his final two moves. This was fine even if the outcome was obvious. **¼
