Lol yeah that is porfessional wrestling, but that doesn't mean it was good. Theres more to a match than that and this match didn't have anything in it that I thought 'hey, that was good'. Almost everything in it annoyed me from Callihan constantly trying to be a badass and screaming, sticking his middle finger up whenever Sasaki did something and just being generally annoying. Selling was bad, strikes didn't look that good like Seabs said and the finish was overkill. I didn't think either guy looked good, and both came off as trying to hard to be intense and badass. I just really don't like Callihan and he managed to make Sasaki look mediocre in it even though we all know he isn't.
Talking of Sasaki...
Yoshihito Sasaki & Yuji Okabayashi vs Daisuke Sekimoto & Big Van Walter (BJW 28/4)
Hell yeah! This was awesome. Great strong tag match here with a really good story too. This is my first time seeing BVW, and man he was fucking awesome! Don't know how accurate this is but from this match he reminded me of a cross between Stan Hansen and Mike Awesome. I loved the workover on Sasaki with the big men going after his neck and wearing him down. When Okabayahsi got in there It got hella awesome and he is starting to get over as fuck. The crowd was going crazy when he lifted Walter up for the torture rack. There was a sick double german suplex spot that Sekimoto does so well but the exchanges with Walter and Sasaki were so great adn were the real highlights. Walter going over the Strong Climb champion was awesome and sets up their match for the belt perfectly, made Walter look like a beast and gives an awesome underdog story to their match when it happens. Great stuff and a ton of fun, my tag of the year. ****
