Homicide vs. Jerry Lynn (w/ The Sinister Minister)
Lynn was actually the heel here. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen Lynn work heel before. I definitely do not remember it if I’ve had though.
Homicie was a step ahead of him early on and hit his tope con hello. The Minster had to interfere to get Lynn the advantage. Homicide came up selling his neck after an elevated DDT. Lynn worked Homicide over after that. Lynn did not do a great job working on top. Homicide finally managed to come back after hitting the Cop Cutter. Homicide dropkicked the Minster after he interfered. Homicide gave Lynn a bulldog on the bell for a nearfall. Homicide caught Lynn with a pinning combo to pick up the win.
This win gave Homicide a full-time spot on the MLW roster.
Lynn attacked Homicide after the match.
This match was awkward to experience. Lynn just did not make for a great heel, and I’m not eager to check out more of his heel work in MLW.
Match Rating: **1/4
