The Cruiserweight and UK Divisions crossover once again!

However, seeing as how they’re in Manchester, that means they’re on the home turf of the Bruiserweight and his compatriots. Pete Dunne got to fire the first shot last night in a Champion VS Champion match against Enzo Amore. Enzo lumped it all in with the conspiracy against him, but he invited the UK boys to show up on The ‘Zo Show. And he means that literall, he’s debuting a talk show for 205 Live! Will that move prove to be Enzo once again putting his foot in his mouth?

Enzo Amore heads to the ring.

The Certified G, Bonafide Stud and Realest Champ in the Room is ready for the debut of the actual ‘Zo Show. Enzo “can’t think of a better way to kick off the 205 Live Crossover with the United Kingdom”! He’s like Jimmy Kimmel, Johnny Carson, Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra all rolled into one, yet better. Because, The ‘Zo Show is a ratings draw. Money can’t buy happiness is a lie, because he’s happy as hell! The fans say Enzo is “boring!” No, he’s Enzo, he’s not boring. But then he got to the UK, and “this place is a dump.” The people save their money for a rainy day, but it’s always rainy here. The weather is bland, the women are bland, the men are ugly and bland, this isn’t Manchester, it’s Blandchester. So to summarize, here’s an analogy: coaches coach, players play and cheerleaders cheer. Coach Angle sent out Cheerleader Kalisto and Player UK Champ, but Enzo doesn’t even know that kid’s name! Who is he? The fans let him know it’s “The Bruiserweight!” More like Loserweight. That said, Enzo was bamboozled. Enzo has been with a lot of women who he never learned their names, but he sure never got beat by a guy who he never got their name. Enzo’s backed against a wall, there is more of a conspiracy “than in the JFK files, and that’s a fact like a Snapple cap.” Bottom line: The ‘Zo Train wasn’t there to back him up. Fans still chant “Boring!” but Enzo just dances to the tune. No ‘Zo Train, but he doesn’t blame them, so it’s a big opportunity for the “UKers” out here. The UK Division can be the first ever UK ‘Zo Train. Bring out the not-so-bonafide studs.

Jordan Devlin, Tucker, James Drake, Mark Andrews, Tyler Bate and Joseph Conners are here, Enzo shaking each of their hand in turn. This is the ‘Zo Show, look what it brings to the party! Fans cheer for their countrymen, and Enzo sees their potential. That’s about all, but still. Enzo has cards to help ask questions. Jordan Devlin, trained by Finn Balor. But then, why is someone in the Balor Club hopping on the ‘Zo Train? Because the only thing he and Finn have in common is wrestling. Devlin’s more like Enzo: money, and fame. How You Doin’? Wow, the conductor of the train right here. Tucker, who has faced Finn Balor. Yeah, and that’s why Tucker knows Enzo and Devlin aren’t half the man Finn Balor is! Whatever. James Drake, aka Mr. Mayhem. Look at those puppy dog eyes, he’s out of his mind. What does Drake say about hopping aboard the ‘Zo Train? Choo Choo. Alright, two men have signed up! Enzo’s liking this. Mark Andrews, the “notorious” flyer, better than Kalisto at least. But does he know this? 205 Live has a weight limit. That said, Andrews needs to trim down or he won’t cut it. Man of the hour, Tyler Bate! They like him here. Inaugural UK Champion, the fans serenade him. Enzo likes Tyler, smiling like the cheshire cat. But, Enzo mustache him a question. Why should Tyler be on the ‘Zo Train? Well, Tyler enjoys a hot beverage in the cabin on Mustache Mountain. As great as being on the ‘Zo Train might be, Tyler can’t bring himself to want to hear Enzo’s “screeching, annoying voice” telling him what to do. News for you, Tyler, this is real life. The fans sing for Tyler again, Enzo dances. Having fun, yeah! Thank you, Manchester. But this is real life, life ain’t fair. As a real man, you gotta do things you don’t like to do. So, Enzo can see Tyler fit in just fine as the butler. Fold Enzo’s laundry, scramble eggs, clean his shoes, and shine his title belt. So go get the shine box. Tyler instead raises Bop, here comes Bang!

Down goes ‘Zo! Enzo is upset, the fans liked that. “Thank you, Tyler!” And now, Kalisto appears!

Enzo is clearly not in the mood to deal with his Cruiserweight Championship contender right now, but Kalisto isn’t even here for him. He hits the ring, and gets some of the UK boys to join in the “Lucha! Lucha! Lucha!” chant before we go to break.

WWE takes a quick look at UK Superstar, James Drake.

Mr. Mayhem didn’t make it out of the first round in the WWE UK Championship Tournament, but the Blackpool native has lived pro-wrestling to become a world-traveled talent that fights, wins, and gets noticed. A cold and calculating hybrid, Drake will do everything and anything to defeat his opponent. How will he do in his 205-UK crossover debut?

Kalisto VS Jack Gallagher!

The Lucha Dragon has one last chance to become Cruiserweight Champion against the Certified G, but for now he has to deal with Manchester’s own Extraordinary Ungentleman. Gallagher has been on a mission to bring Cedric Alexander and Rich Swann into a crueler world, but that didn’t work out on Halloween night last week. Gallagher says, “it’s good to be home.” Because it reminds him of everything he is glad to have left behind. Manchester’s chubby children, “lazy sods who survive on the dole”, and the man Manchester wanted him to be. That singing, dancing clown that Cedric Alexander is slowly becoming. Gallagher returns home a “real man’s man” who is “dignified” and who doesn’t need Manchester. Gallagher is bigger than Manchester, and is bigger than Britain. Fans of course boo his statements, the bell rings, and the two superstars tie up. Gallagher puts Kalisto up against ropes, arm drags him but then Kalisto shoulders low. Kalisto runs, sunset flip, TWO, headlock but Gallagher counters into his own. Kalisto powers out, Gallagher blocks the hip toss but Kalisto blocks a hip toss, acrobatic arm-drag sends Gallagher out. Gallagher paces to cool off, Kalisto swing kicks to knock him down. “Lucha! Lucha!” before Kalisto slingshots over to springboard off the second rope for a spinning seated senton!

The fans liked that, Kalisto gets up on the barrier and wakls but then Gallagher trips him up. Kalisto hits barriers and falls to the floor, Gallagher puts him in the ring. Cover, ONE, Gallagher tries again, ONE. Gallagher rains down right hands, then cools off to fix his hair. Gallagher grabs Kalisto’s arm, Kalisto resists, so Gallagher drops a knee on that arm repeatedly. A wristlock tortures Kalisto, fans rally, Kalisto gets up but is brought back down. Gallagher snarls but Kalisto kicks him in the head to break the hold. Kalisto reaches up, headscissor throws Gallagher, but then Gallagher barrels into Kalisto, cover, TWO. Gallagher back on that arm, hammerlock now. Fans rally, Kalisto gets up again, Kalisto fights back with back elbows. Kalisto runs, and thrwos Gallagher out. Gallagher is on his feet and in the ring, stiff roundhouse then a dosey-do to another headscissors throw. Kalisto keeps running, a headbutt stops him, but Kalisto kicks again, runs and hits a spike-rana!

Cover, TWO, Gallagher gets to ropes for safety. Kalisto crawls towards him as fans rally, Kalisto wants to whip but is reversed into an arm wrench, so Kalisto fights back with haymakers. Kalisto breaks free, heel kick stuns Gallagher, Kalisto hops up and moonsaults, but is caught into a Fujiwara armbar!

Kalisto endures the torque, reaches but is rolled back from ropes. Kalisto rolls out, runs the ropes for SALIDA DEL SOL!

Kalisto wins! Gallagher now has another reason to dislike returning home. Can Kalisto use this grit and determination to take back that Cruiserweight Championship?

Backstage interview with Enzo Amore.

Things got rather personal between him and Tyler Bate earlier. Damn right they did! Tyler is lucky to even be on a WWE show and Enzo is the reason why he was! And yet Tyler takes cheap shots like that? Enzo’s closed bar tabs worth more than Tyler’s entire career, and Enzo promises to close the tab on Tyler’s career right here.

James Drake & Joseph Conners VS Cedric Alexander & Mark Andrews!

Blackpool’s Mr. Mayhem and Nottingham’s Righteous Man fought each other tooth and nail in the opening round of the UK Championship Tournament, can they put differences aside to take on the Carolina Kid as he teams up with the High-Fiving, Stage-Diving wild Welshman? Andrews and Conners start, they faced each other in that same UK tournament where Andrews went over. They circle, tie up, Conners wrenches an arm but Andrews rolls and uses ropes to acrobatically arm-drag. A second arm-drag is blocked, but Andrews manages to land on his feet out of a snapmare, Andrews speeds things to almost spike Conners with that huricanrana. Conners gets to a neutral corner, Andrews runs in but gets a boot. Conners sunset flips, Andrews back flips and dropkicks, TWO. Andrews brings Conners over, tag to Alexander, hand-off on the arm wrench, but Conners uses power to counter and throw Alexander down. Conners brings Alexander over, tag to Drake, kick to that arm. Arm wrench, arm lock, Alexander rolls and spins out, takedown and then speed up, handspring headscissors throws Drake, dropkick drops him again. The fans applaud Alexander’s agility, tag to Andrews, scoop slam sets Drake in position for the synchronized standing moonsault and leg drop.

Cover, TWO, Andrews keeps on Drake with a whip to a corner. Drake goes to the apron, tags Conners but that’s not how those work. The referee is busy keeping Conners out, so Drake takes advantage to forearm smash Andrews down. Legal tag now, Conners goes after Andrews to give him a lean-back backbreaker, cover, TWO. Conners keeps on Andrews with clubbing forearms to the back, tag to Drake. Conners keeps Andrews stuck in the corner, Drake runs in to give Andrews another stiff forearm smash. Fans rally but Andrews is stuck in a neck wrench. Jawbreaker helps him get free, but Drake keeps Andrews away from Alexander, back suplex escaped, but Andrews’ headscissors is countered into a facebuster! Cover, Alexander breaks it. Drake tags Conners, they go after Andrews but Andrews fights out with boots and enziguris. Andrews on the apron, dumps out Drake, then soulders Conners back. Slingshots over, tag to Alexander! Alexander rallies on Conners, blocks a kick to give that stiff back elbow. Conners gets to a corner, Alexander runs in but misses as Conners evades, Conners runs back in but gets a dropkick to a knee that sends him into buckles. Alexander gets himself to the apron and gives a running knee to Conners in the corner.

Conners down, fans fire up, Alexander takes aim, springboard clothesline! Drake barrels in to break that pin, Andrews tags in. Drake and Conners whip Alexander, he handsprings to take out both men with the double Neuralizer! Andrews climbs up top, Alexander positions just right, Shooting Star on Conners!

Andrews & Alexander win! A successful debut in this crossover, perhaps they’ll do this again down the line.

WWE takes a look at Tyler Bate.

The inaugural WWE UK Champion is also one of the youngest competitors in the entire Division. He stands out with his maturity, because age is just a number. The numbers that really matter are “1, 2, 3”. He may not be champion right now but he has a long career ahead of him, will he at least defeat the Cruiserweight Champion tonight?

Tyler Bate VS Enzo Amore!

Enzo asking why they’re booing.

No need to talk, Enzo got everything out of his system earlier. For now, the current Cruiserweight Champion stares down the former UK Champion as he gets in the ring. The bell rings, the two circle, Enzo swings but misses, Tyler has the fans singing as he toys with Enzo through technical innovation. He dares Enzo to get his leg, and then uses that to roll Enzo up, TWO! The fans cheer “Mustache Mountain!” as Enzo gets out of the ring to regain his composure. Tyler invites Enzo back into the ring, Enzo applauds his manners. Enzo gets in, ties up in a test of strength but Enzo tries a cheap shot, Tyler continues to toy with Enzo as he reels him in, reels him out, reels him back in, back out, then forearms Enzo down. Enzo swings, but gets caught, and thrown in an Exploder suplex!

Enzo gets out of the ring again in frustration, Tyler simply waits for him to return. The fans sing for Tyler again, Tyler waves. Enzo says “Screw you, and screw you!” Tyler comes out to go after Enzo, gets a shot in but then gets flapjack’d onto the barriers! Enzo throws Tyler into barriers, then again, fans boo and jeer as Enzo paces. Enzo talks trash about stepping into ring with a real man, another flapjack to put Tyler into barriers. Back into the ring, Tyler is in a corner and Enzo stomps a Bonafide mudhole into Tyler. Enzo gloats and dances, yanks Tyler up into a sidewalk slam, TWO. Enzo is annoyed, the fans rally, so Enzo mocks the rally. Tyler fights back, it’s a brawl but Enzo stomps and rains down rights to keep Tyler grounded. Chinlock that Enzo puts a bridge into for pressure, Enzo is clearly learning in-ring skills. Fans rally for Tyler all the same, Tyler gets up, Enzo brings him back down into that chinlock. Enzo still doesn’t like the fans cheering on Tyler and saying “Enzo Sucks!” Tyler gets up, reverses, back suplex slams Enzo down. The fans rally again, Enzo is up first, Tyler throws hands into Enzo’s stomach. Enzo brings him up, Tyler gives more body shots. Enzo throws Tyler at ropes, Tyler handsprings and comes back with a lariat! Tyler is fired up, he whips Enzo to a corner, runs in for the knee, corner to corner for another try but Enzo sticks up a boot to drive Tyler into the mat! Fans rally again, Enzo tells them to shut up! He drags Tyler up and lifts him onto the top rope. Enzo climbs up, Tyler resists, European Uppercuts hits Enzo over and over and over, one last big EuroUppers sends Enzo down. Tyler adjusts, Enzo gets up and knocks Tyler all the way down! Tyler’s leg gets awkwardly hung up, the referee checks him. Enzo mocks Tyler’s pain, drags Tyler up and in, and then mocks the boos and jeers. Enzo goes back to Tyler, to reel him in for a big lariat that flips Tyler all around. Enzo isn’t done, he dances to the “Enzo Sucks!” chants. Enzo drags Tyler up again, Jor-DONE-Zo!

Enzo wins! He goes 1–1 against UK Division champions, and then rubs it in by holding up his title while dancing over Tyler.

Enzo then adds injury to insult as he rains down more rights on the vulnerable Tyler! Kalisto to the rescue, he runs Enzo out of the ring.

Certified G retreats, proud of himself all the same. Will he pull off another Realest Cheat in the Room at Survivor Series to keep The ‘Zo Show going?

My Thoughts:

For having a crossover between WWE’s two underutilized divisions, this didn’t work out as exceptional as it could’ve been. Being only an hour did limit things, but there was still plenty they could’ve done better. The UK crowds tend to be smark heavy, and they were having none of Enzo’s jabber during this rare treat of WWE TV programming. Perhaps Enzo should’ve tried to keep it even more concise for his opening monologue. Enzo still did well in running down the crowd in response, as well as working to make friends with the UK Heels and upsetting the UK Faces. Good move for Tyler to be the one to retaliate, he really is WWE’s choice for Top Face and fans are in agreement. Kalisto VS Gallagher was alright, Gallagher working to do the same as Enzo and get that easy heat for turning on the crowd, but it means even more when it’s Gallagher’s hometown. Kalisto goes over to keep momentum going towards his title match, and fans are actually happy to see the hometown guy lose since he’s a Heel. The tag match was good, I was a bit surprised Drake & Conners made such a good team but they could really try something there if the UK Division were to ever get tag team titles or be allowed crossover into a Raw/SmackDown Tag Team Division. Same goes for Alexander & Andrews, their styles compliment each other, as seen here. In a longer show format, they could’ve done a bit more to really showcase Andrews’ moveset, along with Conners and Drake, but this was good for the time it was given. The main event didn’t really get a lot of time, it was 10 minutes at most and even the ending might have been summarized because of Tyler’s tumble off the top rope. That leg’s hyperextension might be legit, hopefully Tyler will be okay to make whatever dates he has on his schedule, but it’d explain why Enzo wins 1–2–3 as opposed to a cheat. Either way, it does keep Enzo’s momentum building towards Survivor Series, and I hope the Cruiserweight Championship match allows Kalisto to show a bit more, but the result could go either way.

My Score: 7.5/10

8 Man Tag: Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tomohiro Ishii & Ryusuke Taguchi VS Shota Umino, El Desperado, Ren Narita & Mike Bailey!

The Dream Trio NEVER Openweight Six Man Tag Team Champions defeated #SHOOTER when he had a couple big Young Lions with him, but now the ante is upped! Will the Rainmaker, The Ace of the Universe, the Stone Pitbull and the Funky Weapon win as an iconic quartet? Or will the Rogue Luchador, the Son of Strong Style, and Speedball help the Roughneck redeem himself?

Fans cheer for Tanahashi’s abs, and then the teams sort out. Shota calls Okada out but Okada walks right to the corner. Therefore, Taguchi starts, but Shota pushes him aside to stare at Okada. Taguchi is rather disheartened in the neutral corner, but the fans rally for “TA-GU-CHI!” so that reencourages him. Shota still pushes him aside, and Taguchi is sad again. But the fans rally up again and Taguchi fires back up! Shota lets it go and instead, Mike Bailey starts. The bell rings and we get an A Block rematch as the two tie up. Mike wrenches an arm, Taguchi rolls and trips  Mike and has a toehold.

Mike rolls over, stands up, facelocks back and then wrenches to a hammerlock and headlock takeover. Taguchi headscissors, Mike kips free, and fans cheer the standoff. The two go again, tie up, and Taguchi arm-drags! Mike trips Taguchi, things speed up, Mike handsprings up and over. Things keep moving, Mike hurdles then drops but Taguchi holds ropes to stop himself, and he avoids the roundhouse. Taguchi runs in, Mike dodges the hip attack, but then Taguchi dodges the clothesline. Mike dodges a clothesline, Taguchi runs but Mike KICKS the hip attack! Fans fire up and Mike DROPKICKS Taguchi down!

Mike brings Taguchi up, headlocks, and he tags in Desperado! They mug Taguchi, then bring Taguchi up to double whip. They DOUBLE CHOP, roll Taguchi to his feet, and Desperado lifts Taguchi for an ATOMIC DROP! Mike lines up the shot, he KICKS Taguchi in the butt! Taguchi goes flying, into Ishii! Ishii doesn’t budge, Taguchi slumps down, but Ishii tags in. Ishii rushes in but into double kicks! Desperado & Mike double whip, but Ishii runs them both over! Narita gets in, Ishii intercepts and sends him into an UPPERCUT from Okada! Okada then sends Narita into a FLYING FOREARM from Tanahashi!

Shota runs in at Okada but Okada sends him into a low dropkick from Tanahashi! Ishii dropkicks a leg, too, then Okada BOOTS Shota down! Fans fire up as the Dream Trio flexes and roars together, and Taguchi returns to join in on that. Okada’s a bit confused by that but Tanahashi gives Taguchi a fist bump. Okada gives him a fist bump, too, but Ishii leaves Taguchi hanging. Ishii eggs Desperado on, brings him up, and fans rally up. Desperado swings, Ishii dodges, but then Ishii swings and Desperado dodges. Desperado swings again but Ishii spins him around, only for Desperado to wrench out.

Desperado swings again, Ishii spins him again, but Desperado slips out and shoves Ishii to ropes, for a scoop and BIG back suplex! Fans fire up and Desperado drags him up, but Ishii suplexes first! Fans rally, Ishii drags Desperado up again, and Ishii bumps Desperado off buckles. Ishii CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Desperado roars! Desperado throws forearms but Ishii doesn’t budge! Ishii CHOPS Desperado down! Tag to Okada and fans rally up. Okada brings Desperado up to ROCK him with a forearm. Okada scoops Desperado to SLAM him by the ropes. Okada then goes out to SLINGSHOT SENTON back in!

Fans rally and Okada paces around. Okada stares down with Shota while he brings Desperado up, and he CLUBS Desperado. Tag to Tanahashi, he and Okada double whip. They double shoulder Desperado down and fans rally back up. Tanahashi drags Desperado up but Desperado CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Tanahashi throws a hard body shot! Tanahashi waistlocks, Desperado elbows free and switches, but Tanahashi fights free with elbows. Tanahashi swings, but into a BIG back suplex! Fans fire up while both men are down! Desperado and Tanahashi crawl, but Ishii runs in to CLUB Desperado!

Ishii whips, Desperado reverses, but Ishii bounces off buckles, only to run into a SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up again while now three men are down! Desperado crawls, staggers up, Shota tags in! Shota CLOBBERS Tanahashi, intercepts Taguchi with a scoop and DROP! Then he BASEMENT UPPERCUTS Taguchi down! Shota rushes Okada but Okada ROCKS him first! Okada BOOTS Shota, whips him, but Shota reverses to DROPKICK Okada! Fans fire up with Shota and he has Tanahashi. Shota whips Tanahashi corner to corner, runs and UPPERCUTS, then FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!

Shota wasn’t quite perfect but he still gets the legs. STF! But Okada gets in and he kicks Shota! Shota fires off on Okada and throws him out! Shota then goes after Tanahashi but Tanahashi blocks the kick to DRAGON SCREW! And he tags in Okada! Fans fire up as Okada TOSSES Shota out, and goes out after him! DDT to the floor! Fans fire up and Okada drags Shota up. Okada puts Shota in, he kicks him around, just toying with him, and even dares Shota to hit back. Shota gets up, and he winds up, but Okada catches him into the MONEY CLIP! The rest of the team BLASTS Shota’s team, though Taguchi lags behind.

Taguchi plays defense while Shota endures. Shota fights up, and he RAMS Okada into a corner! Shota runs in but Okada BOOTS him! Okada runs in, but into an EXPLODER! Fans fire up while both men rise.

Narita brings Okada up again, whips him to a corner, and runs in, but Okada dodges! Okada runs in, but into a BOOT!

Narita runs in, but into the FLAPJACK! Shota returns, but Okada DROPKICKS him! Fans fire up while they’re all down, and Taguchi reaches out! Okada crawls over, hot tag to Taguchi! Taguchi HIP ATTACKS Narita in the corner, whips him corner to corner and HIP ATTACKS again! Taguchi keeps moving, but Narita catches him! Taguchi fights the Cobra Twist to trip Narita, but Narita kicks free. Narita runs in, body scissor takedown! And then step through, but Taguchi cradles! TWO!! Taguchi and Narita hurry up, Taguchi clips Narita’s leg and rolls him up deep! TWO, but OH MY GAH ANKLE!

Taguchi holds on tight but Mike runs in to fire off the lightning kicks! He goes an extra couple kicks before the ENZIGURI! Fans are thunderous but Tanahashi CLOBBERS Mike! Mike kicks, Tanahashi blocks and flips Mike, but Mike lands on his feet! SOBAT! AX KICK! BUZZ- NO, Tanahashi blocks to ROCK and whip, but Mike reverses!

Desperado and Ishii return, Ishii RAMS Desperado and whips but Desperado reverses.

Desperado ROCKS Ishii, runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and SPEARS! Fans fire up as Desperado and Narita double whip Taguchi. Narita runs in, but into a HIP ATTACK! Desperado avoids the hip attack, but then runs into a HIP ATTACK after all! Taguchi fires up, he runs, but Narita catches him, EXPLODER BRIDGE! But Okada breaks the cover!

Narita shoves Taguchi, Taguchi blocks the kick, Taguchi spins Narita but Narita ducks the enziguri! Narita ENZIGURIS, then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Roll through and wristlocks, for the spin and COBRA TWIST! Taguchi taps, Narita’s team wins!

Winners: El Desperado, Ren Narita, Shota Umino & Mike Bailey, by submission

The Son of Strong Style breaks the Funky Weapon! And perhaps bigger than that, The Roughneck floored The Rainmaker! Is this new wave going to wash away the old guard?

The winning team shakes hands, but things get tense between Desperado and Speedball, who could’ve been tonight’s BSOJ Finals showdown. Maybe that’s what they’re arguing about. And then they start throwing CHOPS! Mike KICKS! Desperado CHOPS! Mike KICKS! Desperado likes that, and they make up? They fist bump, and fans cheer the strange sense of brotherhood. As for Shota, he gets the mic and says, “Okada…! Mr. Okada, please wait. Okada, Tanahashi, Ishii, you have the Six Man Tag titles… If you’d be so kind, I’d like to challenge for them.” Ishii gets back in the ring and asks who with?

Shota says he naturally has tag partners! One is Jon Moxley, and the other… is CLAUDIO CASTAGNOLI! The ROH World Champion!? Shota tells Okada, “I guarantee I will be the one to beat you and take those titles.” Shota tosses the mic down and Okada steps in to pick up the belt. Okada says “Moxley and Claudio? Those are pretty damn awesome partners. But! Make sure you don’t let your two daddies down.” Okada leaves, but will he and his Dream Trio be able to survive this Paradigm Shift?


8 Man Tag: Just5Guys VS Los Ingobernables de Japon!

Yes, we just saw this same showdown on Friday as part of the semifinals event. However, this isn’t guaranteed to go the same way as last time. Will Tetsuya Naito, Shingo Takagi, Hiromu Takahashi & Bushi turn the tides? Or will Sanada, Taichi, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Douki be on top again?

Fans chant “Let’s Go, Taichi!” while the teams sort out. J5G give the thumbs up, LIJ give the fist bump, and the LIJ attack, just like Friday! And just like Friday, Hiromu keeps Douki in while the others throw everyone else out! Douki claws Hiromu’s eyes, the ref reprimands, and Bushi gets in to CLUB Douki! Bushi & Hiromu double whip Douki but Douki ducks the elbows to springboard DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! Douki stomps Hiromu, bumps him off buckles, and then stomps a mudhole in. Douki digs his boot in, the ref counts, and Douki lets off. Douki tags Taichi and Taichi digs his boot in! So does Douki! And Kanemaru CHOKES Hiromu!

The ref reprimands, Taichi lets off, but the others hold on! The ref reprimands and counts, Kanemaru and Douki let off at 4. Fans rally for “HI-RO-MU!” now as Taichi drags him up. Taichi has the motorcycle stretch and he stands on Hiromu’s back. Hiromu fights up, works to turn things, but Taichi holds him back. Fans rally, Taichi cranks the hold, but Hiromu fights up again! Hiromu tries to turn things, but Taichi brings him down to a knee. Fans rally as Hiromu keeps fighting! Hiromu turns things around, but Taichi turns them right back around!

Winner: Master Wato, by pinfall (Best of the Super Juniors 30 Winner)

El Inmortal finally finals, and The Way of the Grandmaster has finally reached the mountaintop! With as hard as he fought to get to the finals, how hard will Titan have to fight to get back?

As for Wato, the trophy is presented by President Obari, they pose for the photo ops, then Wato has Tenzan hold onto the trophy for him as the NJPW banner is brought in by Ash Da Hero, the band who provided Shake Da Soul, the BOSJ’s theme song this year. Wato takes the banner from them and bows, then they pose together for the photo ops. And of course, Wato then gets the mic to say, “Hiromu-san. Please, come back to the ring.” Hiromu obliges, as he is the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion. Hiromu joins Wato in the ring, and Wato tells him, “Finally, I’ve been able to reach this point.”

As winner of Best of the Super Juniors 30, Wato knows he can, and wishes to, challenge Hiromu for his title. Hiromu takes the mic to tell Wato, “That was amazing. Congratulations. You’ve opened new doors for Junior Heavyweight wrestling. BUT! Whatever door you choose to open, I’ll be standing behind it. I’ll be delighted to accept your challenge.” Fans like the sound of that, and the two go forehead to forehead. Hiromu backs up to applaud, and Wato takes the mic back. Wato says that he wants it for his hometown of OSAKA! That means in DOMINION! Hiromu says okay, see you there!

Wato then finishes up by saying he has one last thing to say. “I have one more match to go to reach the top of the mountain.” Wato raises the trophy and the streamers flies! Wato poses with trophy and banner, will he soon be able to pose with the title? Or will the Ticking Timebomb knock Wato off the mountain to stay on top?

My Thoughts:

A great event for NJPW here to wrap up the BOSJ, but yeah, I did skip things again. Today is busy wrestling wise, y’know. NXT Battleground AND AEW Double or Nothing, only one of which I can do live later. But I did skim things to make sure I didn’t miss anything too big.

Speaking of which, the “No Contest” result in Chaos VS House of Torture is really what in WWE or AEW might’ve been called a Disqualification as Evil, in a desperate attempt to not lose to Bishamon before Dominion, dragged Great-O-Khan & Aaron Henare off commentary to put them in the ring. This continues to build to what is now a Triple Threat now for the titles, Khan & Henare representing the Empire on behalf of Aussie Open. Now that it is a Triple Threat, we can make Steiner Math jokes, but also it could really go any which way. I personally just want anyone other than House of Torture, which I think the vast majority of fans would agree with.

Great stuff out of the Team Okada VS Team Shota 8 Man Tag, and I like that Shota wasn’t the only one who wanted after Okada given Narita lost the NEVER Openweight Six Man titles to Okada. But of course this leads Shota challenging the Dream Trio. I really wanted it to be Bryan Danielson as the third man but Claudio is still a great choice. Also he was the only other choice because they had Yuta join in for Resurgence just last week, and that didn’t seem like the combo they were using anyway. I don’t see The BCC winning at Dominion, though, as I don’t see Moxley and Claudio constantly going back and forth between Japan and the US.

Great 8 Man rematch from Just5Guys VS LIJ. I had a feeling things were going to be different from Friday, LIJ winning helps bring Takagi back into the conversation of challenging Taichi for the KOPW. I don’t think anyone is tired of seeing them face off, they always bring great stipulations and great matches through those stipulations. And of course, an awesome main event from the BOSJ Finals. The fans loved both these guys, but something about their support of Titan felt so strong, I really wish it was his win. But as I’ve also said, Wato has been doing solid work, from both great matches to knowing who his character is, so him getting the nod makes sense. Hiromu VS Wato now being for Dominion is huge, making an already big show even bigger.

My Score: 8.9/10
