ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in March 2018This was just absolute fireworks. The atmosphere was unreal w/ Ilja's return & the action was red hot from start to finish; Ilja delivered an excellent underdog performance, taking a hellacious beating from Bad Bones & especially WALTER, Bad Bones played his role of the confident, but still scared champ perfectly & WALTER was WALTER. And WALTER equals awesomeness. ****1/2
[2018-03-11-wXw-16 Carat Gold 2018: Day Three] Ringkampf (Timothy Thatcher & WALTER) vs RISE (John Klinger & Da Mack)
ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in March 2018A very "standard" tag match in structure, but it's so well executed. Starts off with a big shine for Team Ringkampf - WALTER & Thatcher completely own RISE there by beating the crap out of them, in particular Da Mack. Eventually Da Mack & Bad Bones get an opening though, which leads to a FIP segment with Thatcher. I've said it at least a million times while writing about Ringkampf's tag matches, but I'll say it again; Thatcher is the best FIP in the business. It's an absolute pleasure watching him sell his ass off, he could make anyone look good. Da Mack's offense isn't exactly very good looking, but damn, Thatcher's selling made it look like million bucks. At this point, RISE is firmly on control, Thatcher tries to fight back, and just when he is about to get the hot tag to WALTER, Bad Bones goes & sweeps WALTER from the apron. That pisses the big lad off & he comes to the ring to chop the shit out of RISE. That leads to the ref telling WALTER to get out of the ring, because he wasn't the legal man, which now gives Bad Bones an opening to take him out while Da Mack takes care of Thatcher in the ring & gets his team the W. Wonderful match. Thatcher & WALTER are the best duo on the planet. ****
ShittyLittleBoots posted a topic in March 2017An absolute hoot of a match - Bad Bones was just throwing the smaller Paul London around, with London getting a great shine in during the first stages of the match & then busting out brilliant hope spots throughout it - popped for those SSP's, very pretty. ****
Josh Barnett is a badass fighter, he's also had a couple of neat wrestling matches like the U-STYLE classic vs Tamura and his IGF match vs Hideki Suzuki, I was eager to see how he'd look. I remember liking Bad Bones back when he worked a few tours for Big Japan, it looks like he's doing different things today, he was fine here, playing his role well and putting over Barnett's offence which was the focus of this short match-Barnett threw some great knees and some lovely slams, including nearly decapitating Bad Bones with a Powerbomb. Also liked how Barnett used ring positioning to control Bones and he had a nice flurry of palm strikes too, definitely worth your time if you have three minutes to spare. ***
