NJPW World Tag League 2012 Finals iPPV Review

BUSHI, Masaaki Mochizuki, Ryusuke Taguchi & Yuji Nagata vs Kengo Mashimo, Minoru Suzuki, Taichi & TAKA Michinoku

First part of the match was some silly junior X-Division nonsense and Suzuki and Nagata looked pretty unmotivated on this night, so this was pretty bad.


Jado & YOSHI-HASHI vs Diamante Azul & Rush

Rush is shite. His offense looks terrible, he fucks up a lot and to top it all off, he can't even do a simple face-in-peril segment. Half a star for this because of Jado Flair.
½★

Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Lance Archer vs Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue - World Tag League 2012 Semi Final Match
I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. Archer and Smith's control segment were fun and Inoue continues to show his worth as a good whipping boy.
★★★

Hirooki Goto & Karl Anderson vs Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima - World Tag League 2012 Semi Final Match

It's very refreshing to see TenKoji not work as faces for a change. The match picked up during the finishing stretch and Tenzan took a nasty bump which looks to have legit hurt him. Either that or the mulleted man has worked me good.
★★½

Takashi Iizuka, Toru Yano, Masato Tanaka & Yujiro Takahashi vs Manabu Nakanishi, Strong Man, MVP & Shelton Benjamin
Inoffensive tag match that's only quality that really stuck out was that the dirty finish that further hyped up the Nakanishi/CHAOs feud some more. I am curious to see what match we will get at WrestleKingdom from this feud.
★★¼

Shinsuke Nakamura & Tomohiro Ishii vs Katsuyori Shibata & Kazushi Sakuraba

The rating isn't that high but these four weren't out there to wrestle a 5 star match but were there to hype up WrestleKingdom and only tease any Shinskay/Laughter7 interactions and they did a great job of that. These guys really know how to work a crowd. Ishii's performance stood out as great here. He took a nasty beating and got a great believable comeback until he was put away.
★★★½

Gedo & Kazuchika Okada vs Hiroshi Tanahashi & KUSHIDA
Fun back-and-forth match. Not too much I can say about this other than I enjoyed it and the right man won and the right man took the deciding fall.
★★★

Hirooki Goto & Karl Anderson vs Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Lance Archer - World Tag League 2012 Final Match
This felt rather vanilla aside from Archer being awesome as usual. The finishing stretch had it's moments of greatness though. For example, I was 99% sure that Goto & Anderson would pick up a win here, but a number of near-falls managed to convince me otherwise.
★★½

Overall:

Match quality isn't the best but this show does a decent job of hyping up WrestleKingdom. Only match I'd say you should really go out of your way to see is match 6.

Nakamura/Ishii vs Laughter7 was good, but nothing really great imo. It did what it was supposed to though. Nakamura was in the match for all of 1 minute it seemed, so I don't know how you could say he was lazy here. Ishii was great, Shibata was good for what little he was in the match, stiffing the hell out of Ishii, but Sakuraba isn't very good imo. He just seems awkward and is really bad at transitions. I enjoy laughter7's stuff, but they need to learn to sell stuff.

I personally have loved every single Laughter7 match, even with Sakuraba's limited selling.

This one included, because frankly, Ishii was too awesome. He took an asskicking like a G.A.M., and dished it out too.

NJPW World Tag League 2012 Finals iPPV Review:

BUSHI, Masaaki Mochizuki, Ryusuke Taguchi & Yuji Nagata vs Kengo Mashimo, Minoru - *3/4

Jado & YOSHI-HASHI vs Diamante Azul & Rush - *1/4

World Tag League 2012 Semi Final Match
Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Lance Archer vs Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue - **3/4

World Tag League 2012 Semi Final Match
Hirooki Goto & Karl Anderson vs Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima - **3/4

Takashi Iizuka, Toru Yano, Masato Tanaka & Yujiro Takahashi vs Manabu Nakanishi, Strong Man, MVP & Shelton Benjamin - *1/4 (it's really hard to enjoy Strong Man's matches when the fans are so quiet and doesn't give a crap about what's going)

Shinsuke Nakamura & Tomohiro Ishii vs Katsuyori Shibata & Kazushi Sakuraba - *** (really enjoyable, in my opinion Sakuraba is awesome and even if Shibata still needs to learn how the sell and his timing sometimes is bad I'm still enjoying every second of him in the ring, can't wait to their matches at 1/4 show, Ishii was fantastic as people said here)

Gedo & Kazuchika Okada vs Hiroshi Tanahashi & KUSHIDA - **3/4 (meh, nothing special, not close to be as good as their last match)

2012 Final Match
Hirooki Goto & Karl Anderson vs Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Lance Archer - *** (became really good towards the end)

So overall the show really wasn't something special and you have no reason to watch this to be honest. Shouldn't be an iPPV. Nothing really stood out and crowd ruined the matches for me, I hope NJPW will never run shows there.

Global League 2012 - Day 1


1. BRAVE (Ricky Marvin, Taiji Ishimori & Atsushi Kotoge) vs. NO MERCY (MAYBACH, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Genba Hirayanagi)

Clipped, heavily. All they showed is MAYBACH busting out some power moves on the Juniors.

N/A


2. Eddie Edwards & Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Akitoshi Saito & Kotaro Suzuki

Very clipped too.

N/A


3. Block B: Shane Haste vs. Naomichi Marufuji

This was clipped too, but they showed the majority, and it was really solid. Haste is a guy with big potential, and this win was shocking, hopefully NOAH continues to invest. Marufuji’s hair looks horrible, tbh, he comes across as a Nakamura wannabe. Fail.

**1/2


4. Block A: Kento Miyahara vs. KENTA

Really stiff and intense, like every KENTA match. Nothing special, though, but the potential was evident, hopefully they meet in a big match down the road (but not for the GHC Hewiki title), because there’s a MOTYC potential in this pairing.

**1/2


5. TenKoji vs. Takashi Sugiura & Mohammed Yone

Basic as fuck, absolutely nothing special, the only noteworthy thing happened after the match, when Kojima challenged Morishima for the Heavyweight Title. Oh, and Yone can fuck off already.

**


6. GHC Junior Heavyweight Championship: Shuji Kondo © vs. Atsushi Aoki

Can’t believe it, they clipped even this. Not too much, but still, this is a title match, ffs. Putting the Jr. strap on Kondo was a terrible idea, and who ever came up with that, needs to be fucked in the ass, with no lube. This was solid, but nothing memorable happened, the work was average, and there were few awkward transitions. Oh, NOAH, you’re so painfully average right now.

**1/2


7. Block A: Mikey Nicholls vs. Takeshi Morishima

Holy shit, this was bad! Thank God they only went 6 minutes, otherwise, this would’ve been a total disaster. So sloppy, so… Meh.

*


8. Block B: Katsuhiko Nakajima vs. Jun Akiyama

Fuck it, this was 12 minutes long, but they only aired 7. Of course. However, I gotta feeling the full version would add nothing, tbh, because the match was going-through-motions, there was no depth and charm. Another really average showcase, which is disappointing considering the names involved.

**1/2


9. Block A: Yuji Nagata vs. Go Shiozaki

Fucking hell, talking about a letdown! Sheeeeeit, this was boring. And bad. Oh yeah, this felt like a typical, dull and bland Davey Richards match, only slower and more methodical. I swear, Go Shiozaki has no fucking idea how to work a match in pre-finishing stretch parts. He has become unwatchable in 2012, it’s sad really. This shit dragged, it was almost painful. At least the previous matches on the card flew by, but this was just long and vanilla. Ouch.

*1/2


Well, the snowflakes tell the entire story. Not even one good match from the show. Not even one, folks. Five average ones, but nothing hit the *** mark, and the main event was just boring. Sad, sad, sad. But it’s not even about the snowflakes. The lack of energy, that depressing green ring… This felt like a bad ZERO1 show from the past (now, ZERO1 is much better than NOAH, btw). Korakuen had many empty seats, not even Yuji Nagata could pack’em in. That tells you enough about the state of NOAH. No one looks like a star over there nowadays. Not even Go, not even KENTA. Definitely not Marufuji. Maybe Shima, and that’s it. Nakajima is Kenskay’s guy, and Akiyama doesn’t give a shit anymore, it seems. Fuck this show.

BJW is the new wrestling opera to fill the void of the dearly departed HUSTLE.

I'm officially sold.
