Clark Connors vs Christopher Love Thomas, Cruel Summer, 18 June 2017 (MidValley ProWrestling)
Since Beefcakes of Wrestling spotlighted "The Hybrid" Clark Connors last summer, several new matches featuring the muscle bombshell have appeared on YouTube, including his MidValley debut last Father's Day. It's a fine debut, foregrounding his assets and delivering some fine ring storytelling. The 10-minute tale is simple and familiar, but one that always resonates with me - wrongdoing punished, justice served. Christopher Love Thomas is swell as an overweening but cowardly villain - at one point he flees the ring to literally suck his thumb in the corner. He ultimately gets his ass owned by the studly rookie. Justice is served. Thomas is vicious enough to deserve his humiliating downfall, and Connors strikes the right notes of exuberance and bewilderment to emphasize his inexperience and integrity. To quote a favorite lyric by the Mountain Goats, "I need some justice in my life, here it comes."
