W. Morrissey Defeats Rich Swann At Against All Odds
W. Morrissey continues to show the IMPACT roster that you can’t teach talent. Morrissey squared off against former IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann at Against All Odds and the big man made the most of it.
Morrissey, who took out Willie Mack just this past Thursday on the “go-home” show, took it to Swann for a good deal of the match, but Rich showed some scrappiness against Morrissey as he used his speed and athleticism to down W. Size and strength came to the former Big Cass’ advantage as the tide turned with a big boot mid-match. Morrissey remained in control, but Swann once more fired back with some of his high-flying arsenal. He ends up hitting Morrissey with his Phoenix Splash, but Morrissey kicks out by picking Rich up with an F5. Swann kicks himself a little bit of leeway, but a low boot to the spine downs the former champ once more. This led to not one, but two powerbombs by W. Rich taunts W. from the canvas and Morrissey delivers one more massive powerbomb for the pinfall win.
