This is a summary I got off the message board about the Who’s #1 All-Star Dual held on Dacember 27, 2018. This is a dual when they try to get the highest rated wrestlers at each weight, regardless of division, to wrestle off for number one. I was one of the two refs for the event and I thought the matches were great. Lots of big names and lots of very close matches. The crowd was large and I anticipate this event becoming stronger every year. Thanks to the WSWA for hosting this event.
108: Godinez totally dominated in all areas..top bottom, and neutral ..it was never close and something like 12-0 when he got the pin. Kaess might still win gold in February but Godinez was deff the better man.120:Cassel vs Goucher May have been the match of the night despite having two guys that probably shouldn’t have been there… Cassel controlled early on but Goucher came on strong and got him in overtime. Cassel was the more technical Goucher was tougher tho.
120: nave vs Nelson had a great first round ,Nelson had him dead to rights on many different occasions but Nava was just to savvy…as soon as Nava got going there was no turning back..he put a beating on Nelson and he made it look easy..Nelson seemed to have broke when Nava reversed him and put him straight to his back at the very end of the 2nd ..5 more seconds and that match ends in the 2nd
126: maka vs Lopez was a tight match until 3rd..at one point it looked as if maka was breaking…Lopez closed out the second with a big slam for a td maka got up looking deterred and almost hurt. they started the 3rd 4-4 Lopez went for a standing tilt and got reversed, he then sat up and set himself up for a perfectly timed pancake..maka gained confidence again after that and did what maka does
132: yah, that match didn’t happen and I’m not sure there is explanation as to why ..its basically like ordering a ppv(obviously for the main event) and the main event doesn’t even happen. lol
138: Romero and Austin had a really tough match with Romero prevailing in overtime…he used an over collar shrug, dropped him to his butt ,sunk in legs and sealed the match
145: no match
152: first of all I doubt either one of these guys weighed in at 152 but it was still a highly anticipated match that was about 3 years overdue..with that said: franky controlled the whole match took him down with every attempt ,easily countered his leg ride, and threw him on his head in the last 20 seconds …moore went for a cow catcher and franky countered with a headlock straight to his back. 12-4 franky….Franky wins that match 10–0 times
160: no match
170: Aguilera controlled Morrison 2-0…it wasn’t even close he had him bellies out the majority of the match.For all the stuff this boys father speaks on this board you would think his boy would be a little tougher ,is he tough? Hell yah! Is he as tough as his father makes him out to be ?….yah about that. Anyway, I suggest he stays as far away as possible from Franky Almaguer if he wants to win another title.
182: great back and forth match between Ervien and knight..knight was just too big and strong for Ervien. In Morrison’s defense that might also be the reason he looked to be so helpless against Aguilera
195: I’ve never heard of either one of these guys but apparently they’re the top dogs..Northwind was the better wrestler all the way around.
220: cook vs Camacho could’ve been the match of the night..those guys can move! Camacho blasted him With an underhook-knee blast about 4 times in the first round ,cook was just so damn athletic that he kept finding a way to not give up the points. Gage went down in the second ,got a nice escape but fell right back into Camacho’s underhook ,Camacho went for his knee blast but this time gage turned all the way around and tried to catch himself on both hands..the rest was history
285: let’s just say this match should’ve DEFFINITELY gone to overtime. Perez was awarded a takedown in the last ten seconds that most definitely wasn’t a td…the refs both did an amazing job but that wasn’t a takedown ,no way.
