Anyone know if the 03/01 AJPW show has anything good on it? I'm presuming the Tag Title match is gonna' be good.

SoCal Pro Wrestling - 1/14/12
Tommy Wilson vs. Kid Caramba

I don't usually see fantastic wrestling like this match when I see my local indies, but I was shocked to see this great of a match at one. This match was amazing in so many ways. A little backstory to it is Tommy Wilson has been the heavyweight champion for 364 days, retaining by controversial means including his last match against Kid Caramba in November (which was also good but nothing of this level). I'm a huge Tommy Wilson mark, and that helped this match a lot. I knew going into this that it was likely Tommy would lose, but this match had so many great spots and near falls I thought anything could happen. This match was overbooked in hindsight, but it was booked in an amazing way that by the last 5 minutes or so, everyone was on their feet. The several wrestlers that had made run ins (Tommy's stable and the faces to cancel them out) were at ringside similar to Kingston/Quack and it made for a great feel. The last several minutes had tons of near falls were I had no idea who would win and innovative manuevers from both men. In the end, I was emotionally invested so heavily that I was holding my head sad when Tommy lost, but proud that I witnessed such a good match. They did everything humanly possible to ensure this match would be great and it delivered. I never thought I'd see such a good match out of such a small company that gets less than 100 attendance a show.

Sekimoto/Okabayashi vs Akebono/Hama AJPW 3/1
Another really good tag match. I didn't like it as much as the tag with Yoshihito Sasaki from the day before (I think) because it didn't really have the classic tag formula that match had where one guy gets worked over leading to the hot tag, but it was more back and forth with the two smaller guys trying to take the big guys off their feet. Okabayashi suplexing Hama was awesome. Sekimoto seemed to take it easy in this one, but can you really blame the guy? He's wrestled three days in a row and twice in a day putting on great matches.****

And that's the reason I preferred it to their tag the day before.

Instead of the "partner in peril" hot-tag story they tried to tell a story of strength Vs size and it paid off beautifully well. Sekimoto's "PLANCHAAAAAA~!" to the outside was botched quite badly (though noting Akebono's size him simply bouncing off his fat stomach like a trampoline might somewhat be plausible) but other than that I really cannot fault it.

I don't particularly find Akebono/Hama to be good workers, either, but their past two matches show just how to hide such short-comings when its their size that's focused on. Simply great stuff and a great first three days of the year for wrestling.

I thought that originally but Akebono's not likely to realisticly take the same bump off it that a smaller guy would and did enough to knock him back. I don't think there was anything botched about it really.

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi vs Akebono & Ryuto Hama - All Asia Tag Team Championships - AJPW 03.01.2012
Didn't have great expectations for this going in because their previous matches together have been meh but this far exceeded them. I don't think a STF would have worked as well for them because it's in All Japan now Big Japan so Akebono and Hama aren't as over as heels and vice versa. Instead they just worked a really fun sprint and they got it right. Okabayashi finally getting a one man suplex on Hama was terrific and that the final stretch with them two was brilliant.

****

Kenny Omega vs Hiroshi Yamato - AJPW World Jr. Heavyweight Championship - AJPW 03.01.2012
Again for this I didn't really have legit MOTYC hopes for it but it fucking ruled and it's my MOTY right now, level with Daisuke/Suwama. Omega's heel shtick is fucking awesome and in this environment it sticks out even more too which only adds to it. On top of that when you pair it with a great babyface like Yamato and also factor in that both of them are great wrestlers you're destined for a great match. Yamato's another one of these All Japan guys who's really coming through now as a legit great worker that everyone's looking over. He's always willing to kill himself to get a big match and he has the best fiery charisma ever for a babyface. There's one spot where Nakazawa whips him into the rail when Omega's distracting the ref and Yamato totally shrugs it off and charges at him with a spear which ruled. Nakazawa doing the heel shtick with Omega is awesome too and he's a terrific character. They do an awesome spot right at the start too where Omega keeps stalling to drink some water and the ref takes the bottle off him which leads to Omega not swallowing the water and spitting it in Yamato's face and then they follow it up with Yamato going crazy and returning the spot. I don't need brainbusters through chairs to make me smile, just give me goofy heel shtick with bottles of water and I'll never stop smiling. Match goes 25 minutes and the clip 3 minutes out of but it doesn't feel that long at all and they never seem to be going long for the sake of going long and they don't even have that much of an OTT finish either. The whole match built really well through each stage leading up to the big final few minutes. I could have done without Omega's shitty looking snap suplexes at the end though. Yamato came off great at the end too refusing to die and kicking out loads of stuff but never anything to big to discredit Omega and any of his top moves.

****1/4+

Man, I'm so glad that All Japan is getting better and better. They are really good since 2009.

I've rewatched it a few times and I'm still not particularly happy with it, but I can somewhat see where you're coming from. Akebono may be a real life Humpty Dumpty but Sekimoto isn't exactly small, either. It's not like it hurt the rating for me, though.

Will watch the Kenny Omega vs Hiroshi Yamato match, tonight, and post a review then. I was on the fence with it, tbh, and with the "Seiya Sanada & KAI vs Dark Ozz & Dark Cuervo" match.

I haven't seen any of them work but I've only ever heard good things about Dark Ozz. Will check that out, too, seeing it's just gone up on Youtube.

No doubt they worked a terrific match and it did have a really good story depite it being a short sprint style match. I just preffered the structure of the match a day earlier. I can see someone liking this more though no problem.

I kind of diasgree about Akebono/Hama. I think Akebono especially is a really good worker for his build and size. The plancha from Sekimoto was actually one of my favorite parts of the match as well . I loved how he just hit him and fell to the floor, I doubt it was planned like that though since it did look like a really hard landing for Sekimoto.

The Ozz/Cuervo tag is average.

Akebono's actually a terrific worker. Or at least he has been in the past few months. I've been praising the 6 man from Z1 from 2/10/11 for ages but nobody seems to have watched it. YOU SHOULD! For Akebono if nothing else based on that post.
