I’ve not see anything from Al-Ani but of course know Dunn pretty well. Dunn connects on a rolling elbow right away and gets a nearfall. They wrestle this match with a sense of urgency right from the start. Al-Ani showcases a really nice dropkick and clotheslines. Unfortunately, Al-Ani slips off the middle rope and hurts the momentum of the match a bit and then limps around for the rest of the match. That’s unfortunate because this was going quite well. Al- Ani wins in pretty definitive fashion with a frog splash. Strong win and a solid effort from both guys. This is what some of the tournament matches almost have to be at certain points with guys wrestling a ton over a three day span. Al-Ani is definitely someone I;m intrigued to watch going forward.
