First fall was all shine and Rogers seems like a guy who got how to shine up a babyface early on. Rose tries to act like he was the guy in the ring at the end of fall 1 but nobody is buying the act. Second fall was mostly Adonis working FIP (and doing a really good job of building sympathy) with a hot tag to Starr. Heels keep up the cheating and double teaming to get the fall. Third fall breaks down after a bit and Rogers tosses a chair into the ring that Starr ends up using. Sandy Barr becomes the center of attention with the resulting DQ and argument.
I have always liked the announcer for Portland wrestling, he may not know the move names, but the guy gets over what is happening with the best of them. I don't even mind when he talks about football. Rogers is definitely in over his head here but he has a ton of energy and seems to follow the lead of everybody else well. Starr is already good, but he gets more snug with his striking somewhere in the next 7 years. His selling and bumping are already really good. And he comes up with some sequences that I have not seen in matches after this one. Adonis is really energetic and plays a solid FIP. His offense is one of the highlights of the match. When you see Adonis before he got really overweight he comes off as a really great worker and a star. Buddy Rose was great in the role I feel like he was born to play, the cowardly, yet deadly heel. He'll rip you apart any way he can, but shows so much unwillingness to fight fair or do much at all when his opponent can actually hit back it's hard to not hate him (in a kayfabe sense). Really good tag and a look at 4 guys I think highly of at different stages of their career.

This is for the Secret Santo project from Jetlag. Link is below.
Togo ambushes Goto during entrances and it seems like these guys either have a feud or Goto is just pissed off by this. Early on it is established that KDX have to use teamwork to overcome the fact they are severely outgunned by Goto, on even terms with Aoyagi and a little above Azteca. This point is driven home by Goto no-selling everything thrown at him for the first 10+minutes of the match. And destroying two members of KDX, but mostly Dick Togo. He is entertaining in the way he does it though. He makes Togo a chair necklace to bust him open, completely destroys a fan's umbrella and borrows the ref's belt. Togo is great at being the face/heel (can't tell which in peril). Aoyagi and Azeca get in on things, but this match is all about Goto wanting to murder Togo. Goto takes things too far for Aoyagi when he grabs and breaks a beer bottle to stab Togo with. KDX pounce on this opportunity to put Azteca away with a Togo top rope senton. Goto no-sells most of Aoyagi's post-match offense as well.
Fun match with maybe a little too much no-selling by Goto. Seems like he'd be far enough above KDX that it makes sense and I'm not sure I want Goto to be putting a lot of time into selling anyway. KDX and Aoyagi play their roles well. Azteca seems like he's around to do some lucha spots and eat the fall.

JIP with a struggle over an apron suplex. Ace hits a rope-assisted Ace crusher while dropping off the apron that looks brutal. Kobashi can't seem to make anything stick for a while afterwards despite the usual 150% effort, and this sequence seems really well done. Ace gets caught during this part while going up for a moonsault. Kobashi is able to interrupt but Ace kicks him a few times and goes back on offense. Ace hits the moonsault but doesn't get 3. Kobashi takes over and hits a series of finisher level moves that he can't follow up on fast enough to make them a finish. It's a good sequence but Kobashi working from underneath is way better than Ace working from underneath. I liked Ace interrupting Kobashi's first moonsault attempt and using the taped , injured leg to drive it home a lot. It's down to one minute left and Kobashi is still on top, but can't keep much moving forward without having to sell the leg. Kobashi hits the moonsault with a little bit to spare, does he get the 3 or is it a draw?
Really good way to finish a match with these two. I have some quibbles with Ace's corner lariats and knees. But they told a really good story for what there was (9 minutes). Wouldn't mind seeing the full match at all.
