[2017-01-04-NJPW-Wrestle Kingdom XI] Young Bucks vs Roppongi Vice (Rocky Romero & Trent)

Recommended Posts

A bit of a divisive match ratings-wise. There's a narrative out there that if you understood the Rocky/Beretta internal story about how Rocky couldn't get the job done, then the match is four stars - otherwise its 3 and 1/4. I completely see that story, and Rocky gets some big kickouts while Trent is KO'd outside after a missed dive. But Beretta comes back into the match, and RPG wins on a fluke roll-up. I'm all for weaving some fantastic story into the action, but this never reached the pre-described fairy tale. It was what it was (and I dug the springboard destroyer by the Bucks early) - a ***1/4 match.

This actually had some neat storytelling, as Trent had been little frustrated with Rocky all year long in 2016 - and here the story of the match was that Trent basically took himself out of the match & Rocky had to win the big one himself. Solid stuff. **1/2
