CODY vs JUICE 1/2*
Congrats to CODY for breaking his 3 * streak with this piece of shit, poor Juice got dragged into the mud and did nothing to clean it up.
KOTA Ibushi vs Will Osprey ***3/4
Two insane people go out and have a banger of a match without dying or doing anything stupid, well almost nothing stupid, because KOTA deciding it was a good idea to smack his nose off the ring post is pretty dumb, but not as dumb as letting Ostrich elbow him in the back of the fucking head
BUT, they wouldn't be who they are without crazy risks, and we wouldn't want them any other way. Everyone watch this.
Ishii vs ZSJ ****
This is my jam, folks. Gross Ishii shots and amazing facial expressions, and Sabre twisting a motherfucker into positions the human body isn't meant to go in. DAT OCTOPUS
Jay "Knife Pervert" White vs
OKADA'S BACK BITCHES, but even he can't stop the knife freak on this night. I had a feeling Gedo was going to swerve us but I still had my doubts because, well, Okada is Okada, and he doesn't lose, but on this night Gedo said "fuck that" Jay was wonderful throughout, and Okada was his usual amazing self. Rematch, please.
vs Chris "hide you kids, folks, because John Wayne Gacy is my hero" Jericho ***1/2
Give Cool Dad a shit ton of smoke and mirrors, and an opponent who is willing to kill himself to make this work, and you get a really fun match. Jericho needs to go away forever, but if this is it (
) it would be the perfect way to go out.
vs Tanahashi ****1/2
Well, this was perfect. Omega toned down the goofy shit for the night, and reminded everyone why he's wanted by every promotion in the world. ACE was ACE
perfect as always. That table bump was fucking ludicrous, and for his own health he should never do it again. Final run was fantastic, and actually ended right when it should have
I screamed "YEAH" when Tana won
just a special moment.
I don't think Kenny is done because he didn't hit OWA, and that feels like as message that a rematch is in order. Next few weeks will tell us what we need to know.
