Yoshihito Sasaki vs Daisuke Sekimoto - BJW 26.03.2012
Big match feel, hot crowd and an awesome Yoshihito Sasaki performance. Terrific match. Sasaki's performance in this is right up there with Sekimoto's against Suwama and Cena and Lesnar's at Extreme Rules. Looked terrific in peril, comeback rocked and his selling was sublime. Neck work was neat and formed a nice base for the match early on and then the progressive long term selling of a fucking battle from both men was something else. They execute the epic type match perfectly and have a great finishing stretch with great near falls but never even border on doing too much. I'm normally not crazy about sudden turnaround finishes but this was executed perfectly. Sasaki just swinging wildly at Sekimoto and going all in ruled and it was made even better by not just Sasaki's selling and his desperation faces but by Sekimoto's selling and his faces when he was getting slapped and his post match selling too.

****1/4

Wasn't crazy about the semis. Sekimoto/Bones was fun but middle portion was really dead. Didn't like Sasaki/Callihan. Too many meh chops and not enough hitting each other in the face. Callihan's face wash kicks were awful and that ring post spot was embarrassing. Adam Cole in the opener was amazing though.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

The ringpost spot was more on Sasaki for not ducking, but if Sami was Finlay, Sasaki's face would be a lot more dented in right now.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I hated Sami/Sasaki. There was nothing about it I liked in the slightest.

Sekimoto's performance in that match is amazing though, and yeah Sasaki was great too. I did think that maybe he could have sold his neck more towards the finishing stretch but apart from that it was an amazing match.

So you're telling me you didn't like the part where two dudes beat the shit out of each other? That is professional wrestling right there.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

The ringpost spot felt more to me like Callihan was supposed to hit Sasaki and Sasaki was the one to do the missed chop into the ring post spot (which he did after). Neither guy looked overly great from it though.

I didn't think it was that great of a "two dudes beating the shit out of each other" either. Too many meh chops and not enough being punched in the face. Sami's selling at the end pissed me off too with how he'd just leap back up and not sell anything. Sasaki did it in the final but actually sold the punishment prior to it whilst making his comeback.

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. ****

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Don't worry Milkman, your not the only one who enjoyed Callihan/Sasaki. It was just fun, not a MOTYC.

Sami has come a long way and working in Japan like he has is only going to help him get even better.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I was really entertained with Sami vs Yoshihito. The ending was too much but I was more than fine with everything else.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.
