[2000-08-06-Himiko] Carlos Amano vs Commando Bolshoi

Recommended Posts

These two had a match in JWP earlier in the year that was solid but rather unspectacular. This was much closer to delivering the promise of the match up, as it was faster paced and livelier. Too bad we only got a clipped version. Match is mostly flash submissions with Bolshoi adding in a slick Clown-Sambo move here and there. Eventually Amano focusses on the arm while Bolshoi tries to counter by going for leg attacks. These two actually know something about timing and not to infuse too much bullshit, benefiting the match greatly. Amano doesn't even go for any headbutts here and it goes to a draw to make the 70s studio scientific wrestling clinic analogy perfect. Probably not that interesting match if you're not already a fan of these two, but I liked it.

I enjoyed this a lot. A good narrative of Amano working on the arm of Bolshoi and Bolshoi returning the favor by going after the lg. Some good grappling and struggling for positioning. I was happy that we got 10 out of 15 minutes of this draw and the draw wasn't telegraphed much at all and ends in a really neat position of both combatants having a submission locked in and having to be saved by the bell. ***1/4 (6.6)

This was the fun match you'd expect from these two workers. Lots of creative submission work. Nothing surprising if you're familiar with these workers but there was still a lot to appreciate especially the tug of war submission finish.
