In Topic: Volk Han vs Kiyoshi Tamura

Today, 12:48 PM

The best of the series and one of the all time great matches. Here Tamura combines his confidence and improved skill from the previous match with new found maturity and so is a much bigger threat. Han realizes this and is almost desperate in his attempts to end the match as quickly as possible. Probably the best Volk Han performance ever with the desperation, urgency, incredible submission assaults and even some arrogance. Tamura weathering the storm and cerebrally going for kill shots is excellent. That almost knock out blow from Han JKWebb mentioned rules and Han's reaction to it is the moment from the match that stuck with me the most. Just a last ditch effort from the maestro to salvage things as he realizes he has been surpassed. Sort of drew parallels to the Taue eleventh-hour eye claw on Misawa from the CC95 Final. **** 3/4


In Topic: Tyler Bate vs. Pete Dunne (WWE NXT Takeover: Chicago 5/20/17)

Today, 12:45 PM

While the selling was fine for the most part, I agree that they moved from spot to spot a little too quickly and didn't let things breathe enough. Otherwise, this was really good. Nice heel-face dynamic and a very strong mix of modern high impact wrestling with stiff strikes and solid grappling and submission exchanges. As mentioned, some individual spots were pretty memorable. Clever finish. *** 3/4

Its just a house show.

 

In fucking INDIA ! That's why the WWE Universe suffered through this entire godawful Jinder Mahal main event push for months ! Awful matches, awful PPV main events, racist angles and whatnot. Because the fucking Indian Markettm. And in the end, Triple H beats the guy in Delhi ? Bwahahahahah !

 

 

Yeah this pretty much sums it up. While awful is a little harsh, it wasn't exactly one of the great title reigns of the modern era. And at the end of it, HHH goes over.

 

HHH in the last few years was been really weird. Either he'll selflessly put someone over (Bryan, Shield, Reigns, Rollins) or he'll insert himself and win in situations where it's counterproductive or self-serving (derailing Lesnar, Sting, Survivor Series 17, this).

After a rewatch, this is the definite MOTY for me and in the Top 5 for the overall decade (along with 10/24/10 Futen tag, Shawn/Taker, Brock/Roman and Hechicero/Lucero).
