ACH & Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Roppongi 3K (NJPW Power Struggle 11/05/17)

15 November 2017 - 12:48 PM

This was a very good, borderline great tag match. Everybody gave impressive performances; SHO & YOH ruled with their work over the ribs of ACH & their quick combinations were really fun to watch, Taguchi was a really great hot tag, but GODDAMN the star of this bout was definitely ACH - he put on such a great performance, his selling of the injured ribs of his was superb & he brought the fire, he brought the charisma, he brought the right amount of emotion. Terrific stuff by him. Overall I think this would've been better had it been shaved off a bit, because in the end it did drag a bit, but yeah, a really damn good match. ***3/4

The American Dragon vs. Robbie Dynamite (All Star Wrestling 02/08/08)

14 November 2017 - 08:46 AM

Super glad I randomly ran into this match. It was a super fun one - Dragon played the classic, cheap tactic using, foreign heel in front of over 800 loud English fans. Loved his pre-match promo w/ him getting heat by of course praising 'Murica & talking crap about the fans in England. His version of the American National Anthem was beautiful as well. WWE should get him to do it at Mania next year. The actual match was your classic foreign heel going against the local hero bout w/ Dynamite getting a really good shine in & having Dragon in trouble for most of the match, until he managed to sneak that victory by using cheap tactics. Awesome stuff. Dynamite impressed, he came off as a very technically sound wrestler. Very enjoyable stuff overall & like I said, I am super glad I ran into a link to this. Had a blast watching it. Very fun to see Bryan play a character like this. ***3/4

The 17th Annual CWF Rumble (CWF Mid-Atlantic 10/14/17)

12 November 2017 - 02:28 PM

This was really fun from start to finish, with really good showings by Nick Richards, Ray Kandrack & Chet Sterling. What really put it over the top as a great match though was the finishing stretch between the final 2 in the match, Trevor Lee & Cain Justice. Legitimately can't think of a better final 2 Rumble finishing stretch off the top of my head right now - they absolutely KILLED it. Cain was excellent beating down the exhausted champ w/ his strikes & amazingly nasty submissions - which Trevor sold fantastically. That created some fantastic drama. LOVED him working over that cut on Trevor's head as well. Trevor of course once again proved why every single goddamn time I watch a CWF Mid-Atlantic Championship Match of his, I come thinking "that guy really is the best wrestler in the world" - fantastic performance by the man, excellent selling as mentioned earlier & the way he just tells stories with his body language & facial expressions is unbelievable. The moment when Cain refuses to shake his hand which then leads to Trevor beating the absolute SHIT out of him was amazing. Great, great stuff. Can't wait for the eventual 1 vs. 1 meeting between them. ****1/4

David Starr vs. WALTER (wXw Fight Forever Tour: London 10/28/17)

08 November 2017 - 05:52 AM

Really great David vs. Goliath bout. WALTER on the offense is amazing - he displayed those beautiful German Suplexes, Butterfly Suplexes, that deadly chokehold of his & of course those vicious, sick chops. David Starr has been pretty hit or miss ever since I started getting more familiar with his work - here he was an absolute hit. Loved the energy he brought & him working over the hand of WALTER to try & take away those chops was brilliant. WALTER sold that really well too. Great psychology & performances by both. ****

GO Asakawa vs. Minoru Suzuki (K-DOJO TAKA Michinoku 25th Anniversary 09/04/17)

25 October 2017 - 02:17 PM

A great match up between a ruthless, brutal veteran that is Minoru Suzuki and a younger fella by the name of GO Asakawa who has only been in the business for a little over 2 years. I have never seen him wrestle before but I really liked his performance here - he brought a very nice amount of fire. He looked really, really good everytime he got to be on the offense. Minoru sold just enough for him & obviously Minoru himself looked like a killer just stretching & slapping Asakawa around. ****
