I think the heel stuff is the more the crowd reacting differently to him and he's smart enough to adapt his game to how they react to him.


Ripped the show earlier, I'll upload it later. TAKA's been of my favourite wrestlers this year actually. Him and Taichi are super fun as a goofy duo and I was hoping this would show him still excelling at non goofy stuff and it most certainly did. Really hope more K-DOJO stuff surfaces because he's been working some great looking 20th Anniversary matches.

Have you seen the TAKA/Taichi vs Liger/TM4 match from June 16th? It fucking rules and you'll almost surely like it for Liger/TAKA/Taichi. Him and Taichi have starting doing the best shtick ever in tags with Archer where they stand on the apron and fall down like an earthquake hit when Archer does a bodyslam. There was a SuzukiGun tag I was watching yesterday and Archer did like 3 of them in a row and everytime they got up they back up they fell back down again after the slam. It's the best.
I've watched next to nothing from 2012, but TAKA's one of my favourite wrestlers ever and I'll watch anything involving him in it.

Kevin Steen vs Michael Elgin - **** 1/4

Elgin deserved to win though. I love Steen but I'm not sure why Steen is still the champ. What else does Elgin have to do?

Feud with Roderick Strong of course, hence the long build of dissension in the HOT. Even a mini feud going for the TV title would be entertaining. I think Elgin winning the belt will be similar to Tyler Blacks. A too little too late situation. Oh, the fans will turn on him of course too.

Anyway hearing very mixed reviews from this match but I'll check it out as soon as I can. Finished watching BFG and was entertained somewhat. Hardy/Aries far out exceeded my expectations, a very good Hardy match if that means anything.

Well, these matches aren't on the MOTYC level, but i really enjoyeed Kingston vs Miz from Main Event and Barrett vs Sheamus (Raw, their match in SD was good too). Ziggler and Show vs Team Hell No was another good one.

EDIT: Just watched Sheamus vs Punk, another really good TV match.

There's like 2000 Suzuki-gun tags. Watch them all. SO. FUN.

HARASHIMA vs Shuji Ishikawa - DDT 22.07.2012
Well this kinda jumped out of nowhere as being seriously good for something I wasn't expecting anything from and only watched because I was watching the whole show. This was more like what I wanted Storm/Roode to be. It's still got plenty of weapon spots but they do a great job of conveying a sense of hate for each other and willingness to hurt themselves to hurt the other. Match really comes alive when Ishikawa busts HARASHIMA open with some chair shots that would probably give Bryan and Dave a heart attack fatal enough for the both of them. Leads to HARASHIMA just going out for Ishikawa's blood and when HARASHIMA's on he's really fucking good. Some of the spots are way too co-operative but on the whole they did a great job of getting the hate over and still being able to do cool spots without it feeling too much like hardcore spots with blood. Stack of chairs bump was mental. Wish it would have been nearer the end but given the finish it didn't bother me too much. Finish itself is super too.

****+
