[2017-01-04-NJPW-Wrestle Kingdom XI] Cody vs Juice Robinson

Recommended Posts

This was fine but nothing special, much like everything Cody Rhodes has even done. There was no way he was going to live up to the video package New Japan made for him, his acting was just so shit in this match, he's back to playing an evil genius from a cartoon, it just might be worse than Stardust. Kinda feel bad for Juice as he did look good here, I enjyoed his offence, guy probably could've had a three star match versus Nakanishi, instead he was forced to sell for Cody Rhode's Springboard Enzuigiri that misses by a foot. The Crossbody countered into a leglock was a cool spot that popped me for sheer novelty. An endless whirlpool of twenty second control segments and a quasi attempt at legwork didn't help matters either. **1/2

I was right there at **1/4, did what it was supposed to with just enough interesting stuff (some of the rail crashes, Juice getting to reverse a Cody aerial move into an overhead belly-to-belly, that crossbody counter GOTNW noted) to be plenty passable.
