(06/18/2009) Trauma II vs. Zatura (IWRG)

Trauma II vs. Zatura
Intercontinental Lightweight

Year: 2009
Type:  Title Match Style
Other: Recommended


Great matches can can come from unusual places. Given some of the wrestlers IWRG booked in 2009, you would not exactly expect a young Trauma II and Zatura to produce the best IWRG title match of the year, but that’s almost certainly what this match is. The match has the feel – structure, pacing – of a quality lucha title match but pairs it with truly innovative and effective offense and sequences. The creative offense is executed very well and Zatura’s flying spots serve as a perfect complement to the hold-intensive portions of the match. This holds up as one of the more enjoyable and interesting matches of 2009 anywhere in the world.
