JT Lightning Invitational Tournament 2017 First Round: Dan Severn vs. “Filthy” Tom Lawlor (AIW 2017 JT Lightning Invitational Night 1- May 26, 2017)


Tom Lawlor was supposed to wrestle Jimmy Rave, but we get this match instead. Lawlor is basically dressed like 1995 Dan Severn cosplay, so this  works. I’ve never seen Lawlor wrestle before. Severn has willingly put over a number of folks in AIW. Severn controlled much of the first part with a series of suplexes. Kneebar leads to a strike exchange. Into the corner. Lawlor’s cornerman accidentally trips him. Off come the t-shirts as they exchange more chops. Lawlor distracts the official and Severn is tripped. Quick cover for three.

Lawlor has a ton of charisma and a gift to gab. He even brought out Severn’s playful side too. This was fun, but the ending was unnecessarily complicated and not well executed. Very sloppy.

Winner (s)/Rating: Tom Lawlor/**1/4
