  1. Just watched this as part of the death match heavyweight title tournament. Watching it along with the rest of the matches it’s easy to see that Honma was the future & you can see how he’s incorporating different styles, especially more traditional moves, into the BJW style. The standout match of the tournament so far.

    I just came here to say this same thing. He was MEAN here, and little things like him casually leaning against the ropes while Sawyer is rolling around in pain on the ground added so much.

    Maaaan that Wrestling 2/Roop match rocked. Wrestling 1 sitting with the cast and crutches at ringside, the crowd standing and blocking the camera so you can’t see what’s happening post-match, awesome stuff.

    Looks like more of the LBoA Omni card is getting released tomorrow. 1hr 52min running time, so we’ll see how much of the card it is, but very cool regardless.

  6. Something I really appreciate about the current deathmatch style is the escalating use of weapons as a storytelling device and crowd control. When done well it’s a cool example of the crowd and the wrestlers all understanding the stulemand the internal logic of the style. A great example here is them starting off breaking lightubes over their own heads and establishing where the baseline of violence is. A guy like Abdullah Kobayashi is a master at that, no matter how limited he is physically. Well Takeda and Isami are both masters at that as well, but they have the athletic and wrestling ability to really take their matches to another level, and them facing each other really got there. Kevin nailed everything in giant review, but just to add that this match gave me a sense of joy that I haven’t felt watching a current match in a long time. A great feel good disgusting brutal time, and Takeda is on some kind of run. My current MOTY

    I think were going to rotate segments based on the biggest show were covering, and lead off with that. You think we should go back to weekly? Weve been debating the frequency of the shows. Selfishly yes I like the show at least weeklyWere still going back and forth, at least I am, on how frequently to do it. Were going to try every other week for a bit and see how it works. It might be too infrequent for the amount of content were trying to cover, well see.
