Topics I've Started

Drew Gulak vs. Mustafa Ali (WWE 205 Live 07/18/17)

Yesterday, 12:57 PM

This was a fantastic styles clash which told a damn good story. Loved all of Gulak's technical ground based offense & Ali's spectacular highflying style was a great counter to that. The Dragon Sleeper spot where Gulak got his first fall was tremendous as was the finish with him almost doing what he is against; fly, and that ended up costing him the match because he was wondering should he do it or not. Great stuff. ****

Kota Ibushi vs. Tetsuya Naito (NJPW G1 Climax 07/17/17)

Absolute madmen, that's what these two are. This was an absolutely spectacular match w/ them going all out - loved Naito's performance, he was terrific working over the neck of Ibushi & then later selling the damage Ibushi did to him with those goddamn crazy big moves & kicks. Just a total spectacle with these 2 lads destroying each other. ****1/2

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Zack Sabre Jr. (NJPW G1 Climax 07/17/17)

17 July 2017 - 04:49 AM

This was my most awaited match of the whole tournament & it sure did not disappoint. You got a man who is known for his ways to punish an opponents arm vs. a man who has a banged up arm. Couldn't ask for a much better dynamic there. And they worked that dynamic super well - Tanahashi was one step ahead in the early exchanges, but once Zack started to target that arm, things started to go downhill for the Ace. Zack's work over that arm was fantastic as always & Tana sold it excellently. Loved how Tana countered that brutal arm work of Zack's by going after his leg - just like with Zack's arm work, Tana's leg work was fantastic as always. Zack's selling of it was good, too. The rest of the match is about Tanahashi trying his hardest to put Zack away, but you just get the feeling that he can't do it because of how destroyed that arm of his is. Fantastic storytelling. I hope this sets up a big re-match for the IC title, because I feel like these 2 have an even better match in them - and that is saying something because this, their first match against each other, was absolutely outstanding. ****1/2

Hirooki Goto vs. Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW G1 Climax 07/17/17)

17 July 2017 - 04:14 AM

"The usual" between these 2. They beat the crap out of each other, showcasing their MANLINESS. Goto & Ishii are also really good at doing the usual fighting spirit no-sell stuff while also selling the pain they're in. Really good, borderline great match. ***3/4

Bad Luck Fale vs. Togi Makabe (NJPW G1 Climax 07/17/17)

17 July 2017 - 04:08 AM

This was exactly what it needed to be - an ugly brawl between two bruisers. I loved it. ***1/2
