Ken the Wrestler vs Chase Michaels, Match 743 (UCW)
I think of Chase Michaels as UCW's assassin. The wiry, stone-faced grappler gets called in to rub out wannabes and take big shots down a peg or two. He's one of my top three favorite wrestlers at UCW, and every time I see him on the mat or in the ring, I'm convinced he occupies the number one spot. In the company's latest release, BodySlam and Axel may be sending Chase on a suicide mission against newly signed musclehunk Ken. Skinny Chase has been thrown into matches against other brick walls in the past, but this one may have Michaels's name on it.
The way Chase coils around an opponent is instant hard-ons at my house. The hairy legs and wisps of chest fur add to the effect. Chase instinctively knows how to handle Ken. At first Ken doesn't know what hit him, but bulk and wrestling experience are on his side, and he's quick to catch on to UCW's time-honored motto Capto eum per globos. Occasionally the body blows are pulled, but grabbing an opponent by the balls never fails, and in this match the clutches and twists are as tight as I have ever seen them.
The back and forth is heated and nonstop. Ken and Chase both are tenacious fighters. KtW's strong suit is his thick muscle, almost impossible to get around, solid, dense, crushing - even Chase's wiles can take him only so far against this guy. Chase's flexibility and speed are distinct advantages and, as always, make for an intriguing fight. The clash between these two is one of the most watchable fights I've seen this year.
