[2017-01-04-NJPW-Wrestle Kingdom XI] New Japan Rumble

Recommended Posts

Decided to watch this since last year's was mindless fun and this year's didn't do as much for me. No Fujiwara was a big blow, and it's pretty funny that the year they have Elgin win it they bring in two 50 year old american wrestlers whom both look bigger than him. Him working hope spots with Cheeseburger by having Cheeseburger do Superkicks and other *moves* was pretty cringeworthy, with how both of them are presented it just goes to show how little creativity Elgin has that he can only create drama through parity. I got a kick out of Hiro Saito being there and Kuniaki Kobayashi trying to do junior sequences with Liger but this match isn't something anyone needs to see. **

I loved everything about the older vets, plus Billy Gunn letting everyone know he was blown up minutes in. Man you could hear everything. Elgin seemed almost out of place, and also seemed a bit stiff and possibly hurt - but he looked fine the next night. Cheeseburger with the big pop and then really being the only foil for Elgin was odd. Scott Norton the highlight for me. No rating but rumbles are fun and this did its job.
