The Cruiserweight Classic: Episode 9

The final matches of the quarter finals of the Cruiserweight Classic took place in this episode, which was shown on Wednesday 7th September. Who will join Gran Metalik and Kota Ibushi in the final four? Let's take a look.

Zack Sabre Jr (England) vs Noam Dar (Scotland)
Both these guys have faced each other numerous times in the British wrestling scene so this should be interesting. Sabre focuses on Dar's left arm while Dar focuses on Sabre's left knee. In the end, Sabre uses his legs, as he had a hurt arm, to apply the rings of Saturn to get the win by submission. This was a really good match and this was Dar's best match in the tournament.

Rich Swann (United States) vs TJ Perkins (Philippines)
During the match, Swann injures his knee while doing a moonsault slowing him down. This means that Swann has to change his offence, hitting moves such as a fisherman's driver. However, it was in vain as Perkins hits a pele kick and applies a kneebar to win the match by submission. I was quite surprised that Perkins won but this was another good match.

Next episode is the live finale and we will be getting a winner. I'll post the review of it after I've watched Backlash.
