AJPW New Year Shining Series 3/1/13
I can't rate the first two matches as the streams I watched cut out on those two matches during parts.
Masayuki Kono vs. Kazushi Miyamoto **
Solid match undercard, very short though.
Taiyo Kea, Keiji Mutoh, Masakatsu Funaki, Masanobu Fuchi & TAKA Michinoku vs. Suwama, Takao Omori, Manabu Soya, Ryota Hama & Hiroshi Yamato *** 1/4
Really fun 10 man tag. Didn't really hit the next level though.
Triple Crown #1 Contender Match: Akebono vs. Joe Doering DUD
Just horrible. Akebono was awful in this match.
Asia Tag Championship Match:“Junior Stars” Minoru Tanaka & Koji Kanemoto vs.“Team 246″ Kaz Hayashi & Shuji Kondo **** 1/4
Awesome match, early MOTYC
GAORA TV Championship Match: Seiya Sanada vs. Tomoaki Honma: *** 1/2
Very good match, told a good story. Ending of the match hurt it a bit for though, execution of it was poor.
New Year Junior Heavyweight Battle Royal: *
A lot of botches at the start, horribly worked. The comedy aspects of it saved it from being a DUD and were somewhat entertaining. But bad match.
