The ongoing process of porting over all my Timothy Thatcher reviews into one place continues with the reviews I wrote back in June of 2015. Please keep in mind as well that at first I wasn’t sure what I wanted my Thatcher project to be so a lot of the early reviews are a shade longer than they are now.
Westside Xtreme Wrestling: 16 Carat Gold ’15 – Day 1 (03-06-2015) Timothy Thatcher vs. Axel Dieter Jr.
This is a First Round match in the 2015 16 Carat Gold Tournament.
Opens promising, stays promising throughout but never shifts into that next gear. I liked how the opening matwork was built around Axel Dieter Jr. not being skilled enough to hang with Timothy Thatcher but being too fast for Thatcher to handle. This led to some cool exchanges and moments like Thatcher gently stopping Dieter from certain transitions because he simply had better positioning. The middle is where the match really shines, specifically a brief three minute period where Thatcher goes after Dieter’s arm. Unfortunately they veer away from that quickly and the stretch run is underwhelming. I think Dieter and Thatcher could have a great match together, but this one felt far too abbreviated and never got going like it should have.
