KOPW: Ho Ho Lun vs. Black Dragon (March 17, 2018)

If you have access to China’s QQ video service, you can watch the whole show here.

Our Story So Far…
– This is part of a mini-tournament to crown the KOPW Champion. The winners of the first four matches on the show will advance to a four-way for the title in the main event.
– Ho Ho Lun is the father of Hong Kong pro wrestling and had a brief stint in WWE, making it to the second round of the Cruiserweight Classic and appearing on NXT a handful of times.
– I don’t know anything about Black Dragon, but he shoves a man in a wheelchair into the side of the ring before the match, so he’s not a nice guy.
Now on to the match!

Ho Ho Lun starts hot against the bigger man (who looks like one of the Authors of Pain in a black Mephisto mask), but his running forearms have no effect. He doesn’t get squashed, but every time he seems to have an opening, Dragon cuts him off. He seems quite fond of choking the veteran, and he won’t let the referee boss him around. It isn’t long before he gets Ho Ho Lun in a dragon sleeper through the ropes and holds it through the ref’s five count. The ref calls for the bell and gets shoved down for his troubles.

So Ho Ho Lun advances via DQ, and Black Dragon looks like a beast and a punk. Good work in a short time by both guys except for one bit in the middle where they both seemed to pause and think about what to do next. Afterwards, Black Dragon watched Ho Ho Lun fall to the floor and then walks away.
