    CruiserWeight Classic Spoilers

    Post by Spudz on Thu Jun 23, 2016 8:08 pm

    from wrestlinginc

    * The talent parade introduces all 32 participants to the crowd, in the ring with their own entrances

    July 13th Episode:

    * Gran Metalik defeated Alejandro Saez. Charles Robinson was the referee. The match was announced with a 20 minute time limit but ended quick with a few high spots from each guy. Metalik won with the Dorada Screwdriver

    * Ho Ho Lun defeated Ariya Daivari. Daivari was over as a heel big time and refused a handshake to start. There was a goofy "Ho Ho" chant in the style of Sami Zayn's "ole!" chants. This was a more grounded match as Daivari worked headlocks and holds. Lun played the underdog role and got the win out of nowhere with a German suplex into a bridge

    * Cedric Alexander defeated Clement Petiot. They started with a handshake but pulled each other in to talk smack. Cedric won a really good match with the Lumbar Check

    * After each match, the winner has their hand raised and name announced in the center of the ring like UFC or boxing

    * The Brian Kendrick defeated Raul Mendoza. Raul looked very impressive early and had the crowd behind him. Kendrick worked as a heel. Raul hit a twisting corkscrew plancha to the outside at one point. He also did a coast-to-coast with Kendrick in the Tree of Woe, then a Lumbar Check but Kendrick got his foot on the ropes. Kendrick got the win with a choke submission. Fans chanted for Mendoza after the match. Someone was busted open in this match as the ring canvas had to be changed after

    July 20th Episode:
    * Tajiri defeated Damian Slater in a decent match. Tajiri can still go. He got the win with the kick to the head

    * TJ Perkins defeated Da Mack. This was another really good match, highly entertaining performances from both men. Perkins won with his Figure 4 Deathlock. They shook hands after the match and fans chanted for Mack

    * Lince Dorado defeated Mustafa Ali. Dorado was over huge as he's a Florida indie guy and he got the biggest pop of the night so far. This was another good match with lots of high spots, getting the first "this is awesome" chant of the night. Dorado won with a Shooting Star Press after Ali missed an inverted 450. After the match, trainers tended to Ali and he was helped to the back while holding his neck

    * Akira Tozawa defeated Kenneth Johnson in a good, stiff, mat-based technical match. The crowd didn't really know how to respond with Tozawa making noises for the majority of the match. He won with a deadlift German suplex

    July 27th Episode:
    * Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Tyson Dux in an awesome technical match. Sabre won with an armbar

    * Drew Gulak defeated Harv Shira. This was another solid match. Shira brought the flash and Gulak brought the technical side. Gulak won with the body scissors guillotine choke

    * Tony Nese defeated Anthony Bennett. Bennett's comedy character against the seriousness of Nese was a nice dynamic. Nese won with a 450 but there was an awkward finish as the referee stopped him from hitting the move to check on Bennett's knee, then gave him the go-ahead to do the move. Trainers came out to check on Bennett. They both shook hands and Bennett was helped to the back

    * Kota Ibushi defeated Sean Maluta in an awesome match. Ibushi got a big pop and won with a huge sit-out powerbomb

    August 3rd Episode:
    * Rich Swann defeated Jason Lee. Huge pop for Swann. "All Night Long" chants, and "Can You Handle This" chants as that's in his new theme. Very entertaining match. Swann wins with a standing 450.

    * Noam Dar defeated Gurv Shira in an OK match. Dar won with a leg lock but the crowd didn't care for this one

    * Jack Gallagher defeated Fabian Aichner. This was a fun little match. Gallagher won with a huge corner dropkick

    * Johnny Gargano defeated Tomasso Ciampa in an amazing stiff match. These guys went all out. At one point, Ciampa hesitated hitting a bare knee strike to the head, not wanting to hurt his partner, then Johnny super kicked him, but Ciampa countered with a powerbomb on his knees. Gargano wins when he reverses an armbar into a crucifix pin. Ciampa was upset at the loss and walked away from a handshake, but came back in, sat down by Johnny and hugged him to end the tapings

    Round 2
    * Gran Metalik defeated Tajiri in a really good match that went about 10 minutes with some awesome highspots. Metalik wins with the Dorada Screwdriver after ducking a kick

    * Kota Ibushi defeated Cedric Alexander in an amazing, amazing match. The crowd was absolutely electric for this and gave a standing ovation mid-match. Too much to recap. Ibushi kicks out of a brainbuster and wins after a brutal suplex, kick to the head and the sit-out powerbomb. After the match and off camera, Cedric comes back out for a huge standing ovation. Triple H comes out from behind the curtain to pat Cedric on the back as the crowd pops huge

    * Akira Tozawa defeated Jack Gallagher in a decent match. The crowd was actually not happy with the result as Gallagher had gotten over. Tozawa wins with the deadlift delayed German

    * Noam Dar defeated HoHo Lun in another decent but underwhelming match. Dar won with a leg lock

    * Brian Kendrick defeated Tony Nese in another solid match. There was a nice spot where Kendrick stuffed Nese's arm into the turnbuckle pad and attacked him while he was trapped. At one point, Nese lifts Kendrick up with one arm out of an armbar and tosses him into the buckles. Nese reverses Kendrick's submission for a near fall, and Kendrick kicks out of Nese's pumphandle reverse driver. Kendrick rolls out of the way of the 450 splash and locks on his choke for the win

    * Rich Swann defeated Lince Dorado in a great match with some comedy spots early on but good wrestling. The crowd was all for Swann. There was a cool spot midway in the match where both guys bicycle kicked each other at the same time. Swann hit a twisting inverted 450 for the win. They hug after the match

    * Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Drew Gulak in an awesome technical match. Gulak refused the handshake at the start of the match. Great technical wrestling here, lots of different submissions and definitely a change of pace from everything else. There was a brutal slap exchange late in the match. Sabre reverses Gulak's attempt at a choke into a pinning combination for the win

    * TJ Perkins defeated Johnny Gargano in the main event. This was a really great match with the crowd behind both guys. There was a scary spot where Gargano flipped onto TJ outside but his legs hit the timekeeper's table and chair. Gargano sold a leg injury but lawn darts TJ into the turnbuckle for a near fall. TJ locked on a leg lock for a huge upset win. After the match, they hug. A trainer comes out to check on Gargano and help him to the back. Not sure if it's a worked injury or not

    Sabre/Gulak is the match up I was most looking forward, but I've heard reports that Cedric/Kota was the best match to ever happen at Full Sail.

    I was really wanting to see Ho Ho Lun, Tony Nese, and Jack Gallahagger to advance, but I could careless for Noam Dar I don't see him showing incredible ability!

    I hope Johnny Gargano didn't lose overness from that lose from TJ Perkins!

    Not really excited to see TJ Perkins win either!

    from f4wonline
    Hideo Itami defeated Curtis Alexander

    Enhancement talent Curtis (not Cedric) Alexander did a lot of comedy and they had a fun match. Hideo Itami clobbered him with a GTS for the win.

    Cruiserweight Classic Taping

    Quarterfinal matches were announced as having a 30-minute time limit.

    Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Noam Dar to advance to the semifinals

    Great match, started slow with a lot of grappling. Crowd was pro-Zack Sabre Jr. and got very into it during the second half of the match. Intense leg work by Noam Dar on ZSJ. They traded submissions and the crowd was going crazy by the end when Sabre had an arm submission locked in with added punches.

    Gran Metalik defeated Akira Tozawa to advance to the semifinals

    Another great match, they exchanged chops and dives to get the place going. Huge top rope rana for a near fall by Gran Metalik and a delayed German suplex by Akira Tozawa for his own near fall. Crowd was going wild for the finish, which was a Falcon Arrow by Metalik

    Cedric Alexander defeated Oney Lorcan

    This was seemingly a showcase match for Cedric Alexander to prepare for his Raw debut. Crowd wasn't making noise early on even though the work was good. A handspring spin kick by Alexander got the people going. Oney Lorcan hit a huge uppercut.

    Alexander finally hit the lumbar check for the win. Post-match, he looked in the camera and said “I ain't going nowhere!”

    Drew Gulak & Tony Nese defeated Kenneth Johnson & Lince Dorado

    Tony Nese hit a 450 on Kenneth Johnson in a showcase match for Nese and Drew Gulak

    TJ Perkins defeated Rich Swann to advance to the semifinals

    Yet another great match, they showed their athletic ability yet kept the pace slow early to allow the match to build. There were taunts and dance moves, Rich Swann dabbed on TJ Perkins -- which lit the crowd up.

    Swann sold a leg injury halfway through and it built to the finish where Swann tried everything he had, but could never get the pin fast enough due to his bad knee. TJP locked in his leg submission for the win. Crowd wasn't happy with this finish since Swann was the favorite. The two embraced post-match to show how important this was.

    The Bollywood Boyz defeated Sean Maluta & Ariya Daivari

    Cool down match to allow The Bollywood Boyz to finally team up together. Fast-paced action and everyone got their big moves in to showcase themselves. Two splashes by The Bollywood Boyz for the win.

    Kota Ibushi defeated Brian Kendrick to advance to the semifinals

    Crowd was unsure what to do early on. Brian Kendrick used a neckbreaker on the exposed metal rod between the buckles, and Kota Ibushi was actually counted out. The place went nuts with anger. William Regal came out and said Kendrick used an illegal move and the match must be restarted.

    Full Sail lit up and and the match started going into dangerous near falls, Kendrick hit a nasty Burning Hammer-looking move where Ibushi's neck bent, crowd was furious with this. Kendrick kept going for the Bully Choke for near submissions. Ibushi hit a middle rope German suplex for a near fall and finally got a sit-out powerbomb for the win.

    Post-match the two embraced, “Thank you Kendrick” and “Please sign Kendrick” chants until Daniel Bryan made his way down to hug Kendrick. A great moment to finish the round.
