[2017-06-20-NJPW] BUSHI & EVIL & SANADA vs Ryusuke Taguchi & Juice Robinson & KUSHIDA

Recommended Posts

I thought this was pretty rad - probably checked in around ***3/4 or so for me.


The following is our recap from Ioan Morris at PTBN


Kushida and Bushi had a quick exchange before Sanada and Taguchi were in, with the latter directing traffic as his team took control in entertaining fashion. Evil tripped Juice on the apron to turn the tide and dreadlocked the American found his hairstyle used against him, but a jumping axe kick allowed the tag to Taguchi, who nailed a series of hip attacks until Evil super kicked him right in the ass. Bushi and Kushida returned, and though the junior champ’s initial flurry curtailed by Bushi’s t-shirt choke, Kushida recovered and Juice’s diving headbutt facilitated an armbar from which Bushi made the ropes. Back to the Future was blocked and Bushi’s swinging neckbreaker brought Juice in for a run of offence, culminating in a big crossbody to Sanada for two, then Sanada’s attempted Skull End dragon sleeper set up a parade of signatures from everyone, before our heroes scored the ass-based version of the Doomsday Device for two! Juice reversed Sanada’s frankensteiner to a falling powerbomb for a good near-fall, then they went back-and-forth with a slick series of counters, only for Evil to interject with a chair. Bushi nailed Juice with MX, took out Kushida with a suicide dive, and Sanada locked Juice in the Skull End, forcing the tap out. Los Ingobernables retain!


Post-match, LIJ continued the beatdown, leaving their opponents prone and setting up next week’s junior title match. A very good and very entertaining title match, all-action, no downtime, with Juice and Sanada the stand outs. ****
