Aussie Open win
Well that’s that, and what a nice way to finish.
Aussie Open, increasingly one of the most popular tag teams in the world, defeat the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Champions in a lovely little main event.
Mark Davis made his size count and Sho and Yo could never quite get a foothold.
Good show, but now it’s time for NXT TakeOver: New York!
Ishii pins Starr!
I’ve seen a lot of David Starr vs Tomohiro Ishii matches, and they’ve never disappointed.
As expected, it was a lot of chops, stiff forearms and lariats, but it was a brainbuster that won it for Ishii.
This is Starr’s second of three matches today, proving that indie wrestlers are Gods among men and basically invincible.
Main event next, Aussie Open vs Sho and Yo of Rappongi 3k.
Pretty disappointing from Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi.
Maybe I just don’t get it but a man whose gimmick is that he has a dangerous arse isn’t what I would call entertaining.
Slow, laboured and formulaic to say the least, but let’s not get too down. Taguchi won with a facebuster.
Next up: David Starr vs Tomohiro Ishii. That’s better.
That was so good
Well what did you expect? Just a masterclass of all forms of wrestling.
High flying from Ospreay, brute force from Suzuki, skill from Tanahashi and technical prowess from ZSJ. Just mouth-watering stuff.
There was too much to go through in one post, but Ospreay’s nose was probably broken early on and he bled for much of the match. Suzuki murdered everyone with his forearms, but it was Sabre Jr. that picked up the pinfall with a bridging inverted jack-knife pin on Ospreay.
A short intermission now but we’ve still got a main event of David Starr vs. Tomohiro Ishii.
Poor Michael Oku
Brian Cage just made Michael Oku look like me standing next to anyone with a bicep. Cage is a huge man.
Oku really made the best of a bad situation here, but he never really came close to winning.
Cage’s power and a final Drill Claw proved way too much for Oku and that was all she wrote.
Next up: Hiroshi Tanahashi & Will Ospreay vs. Minoru Suzuki & Zack Sabre Jr.
A-Kid won’t be very happy about that. He thought Carlos Romo was his friend and now I don’t know what to think!
It was a crazy fatal-four-way match with Spanish flys and superkicks all over the shop, and the finish came as a real shock.
Romo came out of nowhere, rolled up his friend A-Kid and stole the victory. Some real tensions between the friends…
Next up is a bit of a David vs Goliath scenario, as Brian Cage takes on Michael Oku.
A cracking start!
Almost certainly the show of the week at WrestleCon, and it’s started with a bang.
CCK (Chris Brookes & Johnathan Gresham) took on Clark Connors & Karl Fredricks, two of the most promising young stars on the independent scene.
The two teams really gave their all and for long periods it looked like we could be seeing a real upset.
But the experience of CCK prevailed and a roundhouse kick from Gresham was enough to seal a win via pinfall.
Next up: Kyd Lykos vs. A-Kid vs. Carlos Romo vs. Flamita
