  1. Quality trios action. Everyone had their working boots on and they didn't struggle with the one fall format. Everyone hits the mat to start with highlights being Arkangel busting out an awesome gutwrench throw in the middle of a mat exchange and Atlantis stretching old Fishman. UG & Arkangel did some expertly stooging including an awesome spot where they accidentally set up a Doomsday Device and end up posting themselves. Just one cool exchange after another in this. Huge dive from Mano Negra Jr. which got a big reaction from this community center crowd. Great stuff altough you wonder if it was just one of 20 great matches of this kind they had that year.

  4. If I did a standard play by play description of this match it would come of as the same as a thousand other joshi matches, but what really makes this match work better is the strikes and the big bumps that they take. They start off with a pretty standard lucha sequence but then Iwantani just boots Shirai in the head Hotta-style and they don't really lay off each other for the rest of the match. It also seems like they watched some of the bumps that Sasha Banks took a few hours earlier and thought "Hey, we can top that!" Mayu takes a nasty slam on the apron, then later tries to destroy her kidneys on the apron after getting dropkicked from the top rope. Meanwhile, Io tops that by taking Iwantani's dragon suplex on the floor, which given the way she does the move is a nutty bump in general. Overall, while not quite up there with the high-end women matches this year, it's still well worth going out of your way to see. ****
