William Regal Vs Paul Burchill – Smackdown April 7th 2006

The winner of this gets to decide how the other dresses next week (something like that, anyway).

Stiffer than their previous bout, and Burchill is a lot more aggressive too. Loved their battle of Elbows to the face and then European Uppercuts. MANLY~!

Regal throws out a half nelson suplex, and I mark. That’s the most “technical” move so far in this match (might have been an arm drag earlier as well), everything else is just stiff uppercuts, elbows and knees.

Knee Trembler is avoided, and Regal takes a C4 from Burchill to lose the match.

Better than their first encounter, probably because it was just more hard hitting and vicious. Not on the level as the Benoit/Finlay/Regal matches, but nearly as fun as those and more interesting than a lot of the stuff going on in WWE at the time.

Rating: **3/4
