    WWE TV 3/23-3/29 Who Cares? Edition

    I can understand that (maybe boom and clip-on mics were out of the question), it's just the aesthetics, and the whole, "we're acting like there's actually an audience here". I found it nonsensical, but then I watched a clip of Elias' fall and...wow. How am I meant to buy that? I hope Martha Hart wasn't watching (highly likely she wasn't, I know) because my first thought was of Owen.
  4. Jim Cornette did a great look back and watch-along of this match recently. The DVDVR Memphis set version has the full intros and an extra bit of action that Jim's YouTube-sourced version doesn't, so if you're using that one, pause on the first lockup and you'll be at the watch-along's start point. (You could also just find whatever YouTube he's watching.)

    World Wrestling Federation

    March 12th, 1988 Municipal Auditorium, Nashville, TN Hosted by: Vince McMahon & Jesse "The Body" Ventura As Vince McMahon & Jesse Ventura runs tonight's card as well as hyping tonight's announcement from Jack Tunney, they are interrupted by an altercation in the back between "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff and Jerry "the King" Lawler. Officials are quick to stop the chaos and order is restored. Match #1 "Hollywood" John Tatum (w/Missy Hyatt) beat David Sammartino Match #2 "Ravishing" Randy Rose (w/Johnny V) beat Sika (w/Gary Hart) after a miscued chair shot by Baron Von Raschke on Sika. Sika was KOed and referee Jimmy Korderas called for the bell after seeing that Sika didn't respond as Rose put on a Boston Crab. After the match, The Original Midnight Express celebrated like they had just won the WWF Tag Team Championship... We now go to Mean Gene Okerlund in the ring for the WWF Championship announcement. "Alright, ladies and gentlemen, as you know, the last time we were here live on NBC, the most controversial match in World Wrestling Federation history took place and after Andre the Giant won the match in questionable fashion and sold the title to Nick Bockwinkel, WWF President Jack Tunney had decided to vacate the championship and promised us a major announcement right here tonight. And now, this is the time to know what he has in store. Without any further adieu, please welcome the President of the World Wrestling Federation, the esteemed Jack Tunney. (To no surprise, Tunney comes out to a chorus of boos by the audience with the WWF Championship in hand. He shakes hands with Mean Gene as he enters the ring.) Mean Gene: Alright, Mr. Tunney, the world is eager to know what have you decided to do to settle the situation surrounding the World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Championship? Jack Tunney: Thank you, Gene. It wasn't an easy decision as it was an unforeseen situation in the history of the World Wrestling Federation. And I felt it was important that we ensured that we wouldn't have to go through this ever again. The fans deserved to see a true champion and a true winner so it is my honor and privilege to announce to you that in 15 days, live from the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, NJ at Wrestlemania IV, we will hold a one-night 16-men tournament to crown a new World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion. In virtue of the controversial events of last month's Main Event, I have decided to include both Hulk Hogan and Nick Bockwinkel in the tournament. Also competing in the tournament will be: -The Crusher -Brutus Beefcake -Paul Orndorff -Jerry Lawler -Jimmy Garvin -Sgt. Slaughter -Bad News Brown -Greg Valentine -Don Muraco -Jacques Rougeau -The Ultimate Warrior -Jerry Lynn -Raymond Rougeau -Larry Zbyszko -Baron Von Raschke -Tito Santana In case of injuries, there are already alternates that have been assigned and will enter the tournament, if needed. And I will promise that we absolutely will have a new WWF Champion at the end of Wrestlemania." Mean Gene: Wow, what a blockbuster announcement by WWF President Jack Tunney! 16-men will vie for the right to become the new World Wrestling Federation Heavyweight Champion in 2 weeks at Wrestlemania! The question is: who will survive this grueling night and make it all the way to the end? Match #3 The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers beat "Loverboy" Dennis Condrey & Johnny V with La Bombe Rougeau The Brother Love Show closed this Saturday Night Main Event with his guest, "Hangman" Bobby Jaggers. Similar to the previous edition with Rip Oliver where Jaggers was pretty much introduced to the WWF audience. Rip Oliver actually interrupted the show and offered to be Jaggers' tag team partner and chase the WWF Tag Team Championships together. Brother Love seemed particularly excited at the thought that he had something to do with Oliver & Jaggers joining forces together...What kind of trouble could Oliver & Jaggers cause together in the WWF? Exclusive Coliseum Home Video matches: Tito Santana beat David "Fit" Finlay with the Flying Forearm Smash The Fabulous Freebirds (Terry Gordy & Buddy Roberts) beat Nord the Barbarian & Bunkhouse Buck (w/Gary Hart)

    [2009-02-15-FCW] T.J. Wilson vs Kaval

    This is a prime example of Developmental at the time. Colt Cabana is on commentary along with Josh Matthews and FCW champ Eric Escobar. The winner of the match is a challenger for Escobar's title but he loses the title a few weeks later. Anyways, this is one of Ki's first matches in WWE with his debut vs Bryan Danielson being a week earlier. A really good match with TJ hanging with Kaval who's still in Ki mode. Lots of stiff kicks and submissions. TJ does a crazy dive from the announcer's desk to the ringside. Kaval wins with a painful-looking warrior's way. It's been said this is one of the best FCW matches. I would need to go back and watch some more but it's up there.

    [2009-03-20-CMLL] Negro Casas vs Mistico

    Watching this match 11 years later and I forgot that CMLL used to not have ring barriers. Mistico lands in the third row with a tope. The best part of this match is the ways Negro attacks the arm and wins the first fall with Mistico's finisher. He continues to go after the arm in the second but then Mistico blows off the armwork and the match turns into a usual CMLL singles match. OK match.

    [2020-03-29-NOAH-20th Anniversary] Go Shiozaki vs Kazuyuki Fujita

    In 2013, a friend of mine took me to see the movie Norte, Hangganan ng Kasaysayan by local director Lav Diaz. More than the actual content and plot of the film itself, I remember the actual viewing experience most of all. My friend and I watched it at the cinema and I had been warned ahead of time that the runtime went beyond the four hour mark. One of Lav Diaz’s stylistic trademarks as a director is the use of long, extended shots that hold on moments in the film for minutes at a time whether or not actual plot is transpiring on screen. This explains the long runtime of his films but also creates a distinctly challenging experience for any viewer. For some, boredom will inevitably arise. But in the moment, while trying to make sense of it, such scenes can evoke a sense of focus and concentration on the movie that heightens the experience of viewing it. The act of watching a movie suddenly shifts from the passive to the active as stillness draws the eye in much more than frantic movement. This is what came to mind when I watched the GHC Heavyweight Title match between Go Shiozaki and Kazuyuki Fujita. The most notable aspect of this match is definitely the extended staredown that takes up the first half of this near hour long match. Shiozaki and Fujita use up 35 full minutes keeping their distance in the ring simply staring each other down. Shiozaki does so from the center of the ring while Fujita stands his ground in the corner, shifting only once to move to another side of the ring. The 35 minutes plays out in near silence as the show is being run in front of an empty Kouraken Hall. The only sounds come from the clicks of cameras and the light nudging to action from wrestlers at ringside as well as the referee. In that 35 minutes, I found myself getting sucked in by the nothingness on display. There’s a hypnotic quality to seeing so little in a wrestling ring. Pure minimalism somehow mixed with the excess and grandeur of pro wrestling. Doing nothing in the most spectacular way possible. It was such a bold and compelling choice that I found myself far more involved in this half hour stillness than most ten minute opening segments in comparable matches elsewhere. In fact after a while, I couldn’t help but feel like the segment took on a satirical tone in its absurdity. It takes the often maligned uneventful first acts of many an epic title match and extending that to its unnatural and overblown extreme–making it fresh again in the process. Of course, this segment could not possibly have existed without the extreme circumstances of the COVID-19 outbreak. There’s simply no way that a segment like this could work in front of a Kouraken Hall crowd. It’s too much of a risk to run in front of a live audience who can provide their instant feedback. But in the controlled and quiet environment of an empty arena, something as risky as this is allowed to thrive. So often, we hear about the ability of wrestler’s to feed off the crowd. To take the energy being given to them and amplifying it as a part of their performance. Here, we get exactly that. Without the crowd, what Fujita and Shiozaki have to feed off is silence. And they do it perfectly. Instead of fighting against and trying to futilely fill the void, they enhance and amplify it instead. It is truly stunning. A lot of this, of course, is projection on my part. There’s no telling what the true intent of any of this was. But the fact that it struck such a chord with me and got me thinking not only on what I was seeing but even questioning the aesthetic of what good pro wrestling should look like means that it has an innate value for anyone to watch. Regardless of its intent, it is a provocative piece of pro wrestling in how it attacks both emotion and one’s critical faculties. I dedicated so much time to discussing this segment only because these two wrestlers in turn dedicated so much time to it as well. It’s impossible not to talk about given the space that it consumes as part of this match. But don’t let all the talk about this particular aspect of the match take away from the fact that when these two do start going, it kicks unbelievable amounts of ass. Kazuyuki Fujita is an absolute beast of a man. He’s wide, thick, and almost grotesquely shaped. When he starts laying in on Shiozaki, it runs a wide gamut of emotions. There’s the subtle almost dismissive violence of trying to smother Shiozaki by covering his mouth as they struggle on the mat, the hilarity of the man spitting hand sanitizer on Shiozaki or even trying to batter his way into the Kouraken Hall elevators, then the sheer visceral horror of a man trying to kick another person’s head off. The magnitude and excellence of Fujita’s performance here does a lot to overshadow Shiozaki. In discussions of this match with two separate friends of mine, both found most of their issues with the defending GHC Heavyweight Champ in this match. Funnily enough, their problems with Shiozaki came from opposite ends of the spectrum with one not enjoying his offense and the other not enjoying his selling. For me personally, Shiozaki was fine. Credit where it’s due, the man took an absolute beating at the hands of Fujita. The strikes that Shiozaki absorbed here were horrific especially those two head punts down the stretch. His lariats aren’t amazing by the end but the structuring of the match that made Fujita feel like such an insurmountable force making Shozaki fight from beneath helped me to overlook that. What an absolute spectacle of a match. Ranging from peaceful silence to cacophonous violence, this is a title match that has an ambition that I truly don’t see being matched for a very long time. This might be too bold a claim to make in only the third month of 2020 especially when global level doom seems to loom on the horizon, but this is an early match of the decade candidate for me. It feels so far beyond anything else that I’ve seen this year and it will be near impossible to match. It’s also an anomaly of a match that invites any and all opinions that will each have pretty much the same amount of validity. Anyone who says that 35 minutes of no action is both wasteful and boring is just as right as anything else I’ve said above. But in the end, I return to the idea that this match must be seen. ***** https://josephmontecillo.wordpress.com/2020/03/30/go-shiozaki-vs-kazuyuki-fujita-noah-20th-anniversary-noah-the-chronicle-vol-2-3-29-20/

    Wrestling before or after 1996?

    I'd still probably go pre-1996 if I absolutely had to make that choice, but I'd be more sad about it than I would have been in the past. In a vacuum, it's pretty likely that there have been more great matches that have made tape since 1996, but I do still care about other things too, and I still don't think there's enough variety in wrestling post-1996.

  15. For so long NOAH just seemed to turn into a shadow of the shadow of its former self. For an actually thought provoking match which you could (and should) absolutely argue pushes pro wrestling as a medium to happen there is surprising in a good way, and interestingly enough, they didn't need technological props to get post-modern. A long staredown was enough. It's really a testament to who and what Fujita is as a worker, because he absolutely carried this match. From his mannerisms, his shit talking, the straight up wacky stuff he did to the brutality (the pimp hand is still strong) you expect from him in a world title match. Fujita is such a personality that it doesn't seem *that* silly to watch him try and push Go Shiozaki off the balcony or for him to call an elevator while beating Go up. I barely watch fake fighting these days and seeing rope pushing and shoulder blocks probably does more to remind me of the absurdity of what I'm watching. It speaks to the strength of Fujita's character that he managed to do that because I can't imagine, say, watching Minoru Suzuki brawl around the stands and doing the aforementioned without turning the video off and rewatching the finish of the Semmy Schilt fight instead. Go was ok. He wasn't tasked with much. Just had to get his ass kicked and portray a stereotypical choplariat wrestler. I wish he was skilled enough in groundfighting so that Fujita didn't have to put himself into closed guard because Go had no idea what to do. Outside of that, he didn't get in the way of Fujita's performance much, and I vastly prefer the route they took in incorporating matwork where Fujita would just get on top and put on Wrestling/Judo Pins than say if they had compromised it so Go could get some stuff in. I'm not putting a numerical value on it. It was definitely unique, memorable, and, quite frankly-great.
  16. Yesterday
  17. You know I have never watched their 1/4/12 match and really ought to. IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki - NJPW 10/8/12 Another one of those matches that I have seen know that I absolutely loved but didnt get a chance to review way back when so now I get to watch it and enjoy it all over again. Tanahashi's left arm comes in bandaged and at one time I knew why but now I cant remember. Tanahashi does his best to play keep away. He even employs an Unorthodox stance to keep his left arm behind his right arm. I really enjoyed that touch. Tanahashi busts out a double wristlock, side headlock and an abdominal stretch to mix it up, he did not go straight for the knee. He gets cocky. He plays air guitar on Suzuki. How did I forget that? I popped for that. That drew a chorus of boos and also the ire of Suzuki. A scuffle breaks out and Suzuki ends up on the apron and then drops down with his patented top rope-assisted dangling armbar on Tanahashi's bad arm. As JR would say, "Business has picked up.". Suzuki tortures Tanahashi's bad wing. Cranking it around the railings and the steel post. Stomping on it, kneeing, twisting it. He was brutal. It looked like he was going to make short work of the champion until Tanahashi caught a kick. You know what happens next. Dragon Leg Screw! Suzuki's selling is top-notch. He really sells the pain from the dragon leg screws really well. Tanahashi goes into full 2001 Mutoh mode with the Dragon Leg Screws and Basement Dropkicks. Tanahashi lackadaisically leaves his arm out on the top rope as Suzuki is on the ground. He goes to grab Suzuki who then kicks his bad arm. More kicks to the bad arm and then rips him down with a double wristlock takedown as he bites the bandage to rip it off. Suzuki grabs a sleeper to sap Tanahashi of his energy. CROSS-ARMBREAKER! That could have been it! Big nearfall. Tanahashi responds in kind, but turns it into a Sling Blade. From there Tanahashi goes back to work on the knee. He even hits High Fly Flow on the bad leg. Suzuki's selling of this by scurrying away with all that pain on his face was exquisite. Tanahashi goes for his customary Texas Cloverleaf, but Suzuki blocks and Tanahashi settles for the Figure-4. The struggle in this over 2 minute Figure-4 is great Suzuki especially does a great job telling the story with his face. They has established the story of dueling limb psychology. Suzuki had targeted the bad arm tearing the bandage with this teeth and looking to break in two. While, Tanahashi has gone to his tried and true strategy of working the knee. Who will prevail? My favorite part of the match is next. Tanahashi signals for Sling Blade. Suzuki evades the first attempt. He goads Tanahashi into trying another by hobbling away and as Tanahashi is coming he explodes into a dropkick, but immediately clutches the knee. The ruse was so convincing because he actually was in so much pain. Suzuki slaps Tanahashi around and grabs a sleeper. Tanahashi has a bloody mouth now and this becomes important later. Epic struggle but with a last gasp, Tanahashi lunges to the ropes. Suzuki proceeds to SLAP THE SHIT out of Tanahashi. He slaps him until he blows himself up. Now he wants the Piledriver, Tanahashi drives a desperation dragon leg screw but Suzuki steps through it and blocks! Damn that was cool. Sleeper again all of Tanahashi's energy is gone. Piledriver but Tanahashi resists twice and drops down into a Dragon Screw! Tanahashi has one burst to really wrench him down with a Sling Blade. It is not done with the usual vigor but here comes High Fly Flow but it eats knees. Suzuki is in pain but Tanahashi looks toast. It looks like that took everything out of the champ. Suzuki slaps the shit out of him some more. Tanahashi is on the apron. Suzuki steps through the ropes. DRAGON SCREW! Tanahashi with his mouth bloodied and exhausted looks like he has been through sheer hell, but he wills himself to hit not one but two High Fly Flows for the win! One reviewer noted there was only one cover in the match and I didnt even notice. It was just that gripping. In a way the cross-armbreaker, Figure-4 and sleeper were used as nearfalls. Excellent minimalistic match where the match built organically and logically. Tanahashi never used his Capture or Dragon Suplexes or his reverse crossbody or somersault senton High Fly Flow to the floor or Texas Cloverleaf (there was an attempt). My point is this is a vast departure. It was not a formula match or check the boxes match or a Greatest Hit Match. Suzuki got pissed by the air guitar and targeted the arm. Tanahashi went all in on the leg strategy. Suzuki moved to a sleeper/slap the piss out of him strategy that left Tanahashi looking destroyed. Tanahashi cashed in on his strategy late when all those Dragon Leg Screws eventually gave him a chance to hit High Fly Flow. Terrific match and great selling performances, another ***** classic for my man, Tanahashi!

    [2010-09-19-WWE-Night of Champions] Daniel Bryan vs The Miz

    I really like the beginning with Bryan pretty much running circles around The Miz, and Miz only getting the advantage when Bryan wasn't fully focusing on him as the ref was telling him to back away. Miz's gameplan becomes clear when he gets that one bit of offense there; he gets the advantage by wringing Bryan's arm into the ropes, and after that, he starts doing a big number on Bryan's arm/shoulder. Miz's work over that shoulder is amazingly compelling -- I've always loved this match, but after this most recent re-watch, I am actually pretty blown away by his performance. He wrestled like he had something to prove, and it really is the best single match performance of his career. The whole thing in many ways reminds me of a Bryan Danielson ROH World Title match circa 2006, but the funny thing is that the role of Bryan Danielson isn't played by the man himself -- it's played by THE MIZ. He's excellent here, and Bryan is of course on par w/ his role, bringing the energy up big time in every bit of offense he gets with that vintage explosiveness & intensity of his. His selling of the arm is also pretty much perfect, and I'd actually call it one of his best selling performances ever, even. The arm feels like dead weight, and rightfully so, because Miz truly had a laser-focused target on it. Excellent bodypart targeting & excellent selling. How bout that? I'll always sing the praises for this match; it feels like it's almost criminally "forgotten" in Bryan's catalogue, and even when people discuss Miz's best matches, it doesn't get the full recognition it imo deserves. It would be a top-10 match anywhere in almost any year ever. ****1/2
  19. Starts off with a pretty standard a Guerreros’ shine, working over both heels arms and Gilbert specially bumping really good for them. Guerreros using sneaky tactics like switching and making the referee miss a Gilbert tag. Nightmare gets a warm tag and the heels turn it around by having Hector attacked outside the ring with a Hummperdink assist. Chavo gets the hot tag and the Guerreros gain the upper hand on a couple of double dropkicks. Finish comes when Chavo nails the Nightmare with a flying crossbody, gets a visual pinfall but Humperdink hops to the ring for the DQ. Mildly fun but ultimately uneventful. ***

    WWF makes its triumphant return to the Garden! The tournament was full of action and surprises. Gunslingers/Tribe feud continues. Islanders looked strong. Sheik and Nikolai get some good heat. Fantastics and Bulldogs make it to the finals. I was shocked when Heenan aligned with the Bulldogs. Did not see that coming! I'm all for a Bulldogs title heel run and with Heenan this will be gold. Slaughter makes his epic return! He's going to be money! With Andre in a battle royal you pretty much know how it's going to end. However, Mr. Magnificent got a huge rub by being the last man in there with him. Solid World title match as Polish Power gives Backlund a fight but Backlund is a crafty one and retains with the Cross Face Chicken Wing. I could see Ray Candy drawing with Backlund and of course a Backlund/Slaughter match would guarantee a sell out. The fans got their money's worth tonight. The WWF is now running on all cylinders.

    Johnny V brings in the California Connection. Tatum and Embry are perfect for Johnny. Dibiase might be a bit worried with Stan Hansen coming after him. Mr. AWA is back! Your Landel promo was awesome! I loved this entire segment and it went to an even higher level when Flair came out. I have been waiting a long time for the Nature Boys feud and now we're going to get it. Cant wait for next week. This is freak'n great! As always I love the commercials. Keep them going LOL. Hall/Hennig versus the Long Riders should be a hard hitting match up. LOL, Sawyer coming out with Rich's title was good stuff. I busted up when Sawyer said he sold the retired belts. Good grief what an ending! That was insane! Not only does Nikita send Dusty packing but he goes crazy and hangs Hart with his chain. To top it off Verne comes out with the police. That was wild! I thought Stan Hansen was nuts but Nikita might have surpassed him. The AWA is must see TV! Great job!

    Hey I’m already listening! And, I do have the set! Also, wasn’t there one where you went 1 on 1 with Parv — Flair vs. Savage for GWE? Maybe it was Grimmas — either way, great stuff! ... I might just be thinking of his series about Flair that probably came out around the same time...

    The Go Shiozaki/Kazuyuki Fujita GHC title match is one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. It's like the Finnegans Wake or Trout Mask Replica of wrestling matches.
