Just all of York Hall erupting into boos and chants of "Fuck You Vader", all because he'd slagged off their golden boy on Twitter and worked his way into a booking in the process. What a pro. Well. It didn't have to happen as a match. Just a face off in the same ring would have done the deal. But I agree. It's brilliant at the end of the day. Will and Ricochet show off a way to break the internet that isn't typing Google into Google. He sounded off, that said, he was as entitled to his opinion as the next guy. I didn't get the match as Will's selling offence by screaming in his "pip, pip, cheerio Mattitude Follower" phase. He got an all expenses paid trip to the UK out of it. Sure, it sadly proved his last. But that's what people want to see, right? Granted, the match didn't finish the way they wanted to, but I think it worked better seeing how they were setting Dunne's rematch up after he beat him for the Rev Pro Cruiserweight Title not long after he won BOSJ as well as Pete screwing him over in the match but had Ricochet even the odds so that all 3 shared the ring at some point. No doubt Vader would get any HOF induction purely for having his eye gouged out against Stan Hansen, only to put it back in and wrestle for a good 20 minutes. A Former WCW Champion and the first Gaijin to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Something only 6 others have done. So he also is in a club that still has fewer members than men who walked on the moon. Without question one of the greatest big guys ever. Rest easy Mastadon.
