Drew Gulak def. Harv Sihra (First Round Match)
The next first round battle was a true clash of styles, as minimalist grappler Drew Gulak took on the charismatic “Bollywood Don” Harv Sihra. There was no time for dancing in this battle, as Gulak used his mat wrestling ability to take control. Sihra, perhaps knowing he could not go hold for hold with Gulak, went for a series of cradles and crucifixes, trying to catch the no-nonsense wrestler with a surprise pin.
However, Sihra only made Gulak angry. The minimalist mutilator staggered Sihra with a series of open hand strikes before slamming him into the ropes. Harv followed up with a moonsault to the arena floor and a superplex back in the ring. However, the “Bollywood Don” was not prepared for Gulak to charge at him and trap him in a Dragon Sleeper. In the center of the ring with Gulak wrenching the hold deeper and deeper, Sihra was forced to tap out. Gulak cemented his place in the next round with the victory. His second round battle will surely be a technical wrestling exhibition, as he squares off with Zack Sabre Jr.
