Allmark, Allmark and more Allmark. I've got loads of british stuff stored up on my youtube history that I haven't dived into for months now but if you watch everything from Allmark youtube page you won't be disappointed. Watch his matches with Mason from last year too. I haven't watched any of them yet but the Premier League Wrestling matches on youtube are supposed to be really good. Sabre/Scurll from Progress this year has gotten a lot of high end love. Didn't think it was great personally though. Got some NGW shows coming so hopefully I'll watch them soon too. Any of the Finlay UK matches have been good-great.
There is a whole heap of goodness on that Allmark page, I will not lie. I'll hopefully be able to set aside a day to go through everything British I can lay my hands on because I've been phenomenally impressed with what I've seen.
Well, excluding the South African imports that have made their way to your side of the world. Fucking Zizou Middoux.
KO-D Openweight Championship: Kota Ibushi vs Kenny Omega ***3/4 (18-08)
Just the names alone make me happy. This may just be my guilty pleasure of 2012.
Final G1 Climax: Kazuchika Okada vs Karl Anderson
I'm not quite sure why I liked this so much, considering Anderson seemed too lackadaisical in selling but whatever. This.Was.Fun.
Can't help but wonder if Anderson was booked into the final because it would make him the first foreigner to reach it since Rick Rude 20 years ago to the day but the final served its purpose. Say what you want about either man but this year's G1 Final had huge heat/crowd involvement and a great match with a finishing stretch (the last 30 seconds especially) that was truly exciting to watch.
NJPW are really pimping Okada hard this year and a G1 win (being the youngest person to do so) is something I wouldn't have expected, especially with them already giving him a title run. I suppose top brass have been as surprised by his improvement in quality as the rest of us were.
Cannot wait for his title match at Tokyo Dome.
