Evan Bourne vs. Zack Ryder
Both guys were having good matches on WWECW at this time. This could be quite good.
Ryder managed to get control after a knee to the gut. He then worked Bourne over. Ryder was still in control after a commercial break. Bourne briefly had a single leg crab, but Ryder cut him off again. Bourne finally made his proper comeback after avoided a dropkick. Bourne kicked out of the Rough Ryder. Bourne then avoided a superplex and hit the SSP: 1…2…3
This was fine. Ryder had a sound strategy of going after Bourne’s midsection, but it did not really go anywhere. There are dozens of matches that showcase Bourne’s spectacular high flying ability. This was not one of them.
Match Rating: **1/2
