AIW: Battle Bowl 2011

Lakewood, OH – 3.25.2011

Tim Donst vs. El Generico

Donst was supposed to face Steen, but Steen was unable to make it. What a more fitting replacement than his former partner Generico? Generico backs Donst to the corner and yells Ole! Donst backs Generico to the corner and slaps him in the face. Generico slapps Donst a few times and lays in some chops. Donst mocks Generico, but gets sent to the floor with armdrags for his troubles. Donst grabs a fan’s Generico replica mask and spits on it. This causes Generico to chase Donst around ringside. Generico takes control back in the ring by laying in punches in the corner. Donst brings Generico out with a Manhattan drop. Generico responds with a leg lariat for two. Donst twists Generico’s nipples and snapmares him into a hammerlock stretch. A gutwrench suplex gets Donst two. Donst gives Generico a backbreaker from the apron to the floor. Donst pushes Generico into the guardrail and then back first into the ring frame. Donst delivers an overhand chop. Donst rams him back first into the ring post. In the ring Donst stretches Generico’s back over his knees. Generico gets more damage inflicted on his back. He fires up and knocks Donst down with a few clotheslines. Generico blocks a Gator Roll with a Blue Thunder Bomb for two. Donst blocks a yakuza kick. Generico tries a tornado DDT. Donst counters with a Death Valley Driver for two. Generico throws Donst into the corner with an exploder suplex for two. Donst crotches Generico and hits the Donst Cap. He German suplexes Generico out of the corner and drops him with the SDT for two. Donst applies a butterfly stretch. Generico escapes and trades forearms with Donst. Donst drops him with a bulldog. Generico yakuza kicks him in the corner. He goes for a brainbuster, but Donst catches Generico with an inside cradle for the pin at 14:27. Donst’s streak of beating top independent wrestlers in good matches continues. I loved the story with Donst wearing down Generico’s back so Generico couldn’t hit the brainbuster. In the end, Donst outsmarted the pro and builds momentum to his Absolute title shot at Absolution 6. ***1/4
