[2014-03-21-Big Fireworks Promotion] Atsushi Onita & Shinjiro Otani vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Yoshiaki Fujiwara (No Rope Electrified Exploding Barbed Wire Chair Death)

Recommended Posts

This is a pretty nasty exploding barbed wire match.I can just imagine how awesome this would have been 20 years ago, and considering how old and washed up most of these dudes are (outside of our boy Fujiwara, he will never be washed up) this was damn surprising. Although when you think about exploding barbed wire matches they are really more about charisma and facial selling then insane bumps, and these are four guys with boatloads of charisma and expressive faces. Ohtani has gotten really bald and fat, with that gut and hairline he looks like he is working a Phil Schneider gimmick, he totally looks like a ringer for old FMW dudes like Sambo Asako or Kurisu, he isn't Kurisu great in this but he has some fun exchanges with Fujiwara and a great spot where he gets too enthusiastic with his signature boot scrapes and scrapes his way leg first into an explosion. Onita at one point gets caught in the Fujiwara armbar and has to set off an explosion to escape. Fujiwara gets a showcase after he gets smashed with an exploding chair, he comes out like an action movie hero covered in debris and mist and starts fucking dudes up. The stuff between the big spots was a bit meandering, but I enjoyed this way more then I should have.

Holy shit. That spot may be my favorite spot of the year. It's like the FMW version of the Macho Reviving Elbowdrop.

 

I've was pretty underwhelmed by the series Onita had with Akebono, but this match really felt like the old FMW Onita magic was back. Some fun Japanese old guy brawling, some nutty spots, Fujiwara getting the "FUCK YEAH!" spot of kicking out at 2 after getting hit with an exploding barbed wire chair. And Ohtani's amazing sell on the first explosion bump.

 

I am sad that this wasn't on Wrestlemania for the world to see :(
