Miguel Ramirez vs. Adrian Severe
Don’t let the name fool you. Miguel Ramirez is an Austrian wrestler who debuted in 2011, but before he did he slapped on a mask and put together the first two latino sounding names he could think of. Regardless of how generic and inauthentic Ramirez’s name may be, this 5’7″, 160 lbs performer has a solid build given his small frame and is a beyond decent high flyer especially considering he is just 19 years-old.
In July 2013, Ramirez opened the NEW Deadline 2013 card for former WCW talent, Alex Wright’s promotion, New European Championship Wrestling (NEW). Ramirez’s match was also the first bout in the NEW Deadline Tournament 2013. The premise of this tournament was that 10 singles matches were held and limited to 10 minutes. The winner of each of these matches would then advance to a multi-person ladder match with the winner of that performance being the tournament winner.
For Ramirez’s match his opponent was Adrian Severe who at the time held the NEW World Heavyweight Championship. Despite just being 6’0″ Severe towers over Ramirez, which makes his agility all the more surprising. This allows for some nifty spots the best of which is when Severe springs off the middle of the top rope only to get super kicked. The move looks about as impressive as when Shawn Michaels blew away Shelton Benjamin with the same style kick on an episode of WWE Monday Night Raw many moons ago. Severe really gives Ramirez a chance to shine when he misses a frogsplash then eats a tilt-a-whirl DDT from the faux luchador.
As good as Ramirez looks in this match it ends with Severe performing a fallaway slam for the victory.
