Tampa, Florida at Ivy Astoria Event Center
Report by Dot Net staffer Zack Zimmerman
1. Dave Crist beat Darby Allin in a first-round match. A very fun opener that Crist won with a Sister Abigail DDT.
2. Desmond Xavier beat Sammy Guevera in a first-round match. Sammy performed the shooting star legdrop, which is pretty unreal. A wild match that Xavier won with a great Spiral Tap. Both guys were super impressive.
3. AR Fox beat Austin Theory in a first-round match. Theory made a hell of an impression. You’re going to see a lot more of him.
4. Fred Yehi fought Anthony Henry to a 20-minute draw in a first-round match. It was 30 degrees and the show was outside, making the long draw idiotic. It was a good match, but the cold made it hard to enjoy. On the bright side, it meant one less match in the second round.
5. Dave Crist pinned Desmond Xavier to advance to the tournament final. Crist spiked Xavier with Emerald Flowsion and got the pinfall.
6. Jason Kincaid won a Fray match. A pretty bad match.
7. Dave Crist defeated AR Fox to win the Style Battle tournament. A fun show that suffered from miserable weather at the outdoor venue.
