Topics I've Started

Daniel Bryan vs. Jeff Hardy (WWE SmackDown 05/22/18)

22 May 2018 - 10:01 PM

This was such a super fun, energetic back & forth match. Jeff looked very good w/ all of his stuff & Bryan on the offense was an absolute joy to watch. The knee psychology towards the end ruled & Bryan actually getting the win with a Heel Hook is superb. Bring on Bryan vs. Joe next week! ****

WALTER vs. Zack Sabre Jr. (wXw We Love Wrestling Tour: Hamburg 05/18/18)

22 May 2018 - 07:38 AM

As usual, these two beat the crap out of each other in a fantastic David vs. Goliath bout. They went with the simplest of all psychologies in that kind of a setting; ZSJ went after WALTER's leg, which WALTER sells excellently & puts on an overall amazing wounded-yet-still-dangerous-monster -performance. ZSJ is great working the crap out of that leg & his cocky character work as he realizes he has the big lad in trouble was a joy. Fantastic performances by both guys & a fantastic match. ****

Hiromu Takahashi vs. Marty Scurll (NJPW Best of the Super Jr. XXV 05/19/18)

20 May 2018 - 05:15 AM

Well goddamn. I thought their RevPro & NJPW (did not watch the ROH one) matches from 2017 were trash, so I definitely didn't have positive expectations of any kind going into this. I am very positively surprised by what they put together here though - a really good match! Really liked Marty on top in the first half of the match, he was pretty damn awesome on control & Hiromu was good fighting from underneath - LOVED that sunset flip powerbomb to the outside comeback of his. After that the match becomes more of a bombfest, but doesn't drift into the overkill at all & remains very enjoyable in it's structure & the way they continued to tell the story they had been telling since the start of it. Loved the finish, too. MOTN. ***1/2

Daniel Makabe vs. Alex Zayne (3-2-1 BATTLE! All Deeyocks Go To Heaven 05/18/18)

19 May 2018 - 01:09 PM

Highflying vs. Technical Work is a dynamic that works super well 90% of the time, and it certainly did here. Daniel Makabe is an absolute stud in the ring - his work in this one was just outstanding. Fantastic work over Zayne, especially liked that leg targeting & he sold all of Zayne's highflying offense in superb fashion. I do think the match dragged a bit towards the end, but it was still a really good one. Borderline great, even. Daniel Makabe rules. ***3/4

Cody vs. Jushin Liger (ROH/NJPW War of the Worlds 05/11/18)

16 May 2018 - 04:43 PM

This was very fun. Good stuff early on w/ Liger overwhelming Cody, and Cody only getting the advantage with the help of the greatest manager of all-time, BURNARD the BUSINESS BEAR. Bless. Cody was very good on top & I liked the brief leg psychology they went with. Liger of course rules as a babyface w/ his selling & comebacks. ***1/2
