These two have a bit of a rivalry going as Page said Shultz brought out the devil in him. Shultz attacks Page before the intros and is able to maintain the advantage early. Page connects on a right hand to get the advantage himself. Page counters the dreaded eye poke, but Shultz hits a knee strike. Page has RKEgo countered. Shultz rolls him up out of nowhere for three.

Shultz is a guy who has a very different style compared to a number of other indie wrestlers in that he’s not afraid to use a slower style and get heat through his character work (and some eye pokes). The finish would clearly indicate a grudge match is forthcoming. The match was fine for the time given but came across more like a next step in the story as opposed to a full wrestling match. Good move putting the new person over.

Winner (s)/Rating: Shawn Shultz/*1/2
