This was a quarterfinal match in the Paul UK tournament thing.
Tyler Bate is quite great. Jordan Devlin looked like a jabroni. Devlin’s selling was so hilariously over the top at times that it was completely impossible to take him seriously in any way. The fact that he actually controlled the match did everyone involved no favors. It just made everything look poor, and it didn’t really give Bate a chance to salvage this one. At least the far superior talent won. (**)
