When it was all on the line, he came through.
Alex Dieringer was a staple of greatness for Titan Mercury at the World Clubs Cup in Kharkov, Ukraine, this past Wednesday and Thursday. On the event's first day, he turned in a flawless performance as he claimed all three of his wins by technical fall without giving up one single point.
He was slowed down a bit in Thursday's championship finals when he fell behind 4-0 early in the match. However, Dieringer collected four clutch winning points in the final seconds of the bout to get the 4-4 win.
Coupled with his dominating opening day and his nail-biting comeback win, Alex Dieringer is our FloWrestler of the week.
Fast forward to 2:22:55 to watch Dieringer's clutch performance.
