The Bollywood Boyz VS Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari!

Samir & Sunil Singh still have Ever-Rise on their side, but they’re doing things their way again against fellow 205 Live Originals! Will this be another Bollywood Blockbuster? Or will the #PremierDinero bank another win together this close to TakeOver?

The teams sort out, Daivari starts against Samir, and the two circle. They tie up, Daivari pulls Samir’s hair and puts him in the corner. Daivari climbs up to rain down forearms and elbows, but lets off as the ref counts. Daivari CHOPS Samir, CLUBS him down, then stomps him for good measure. Nese taunts Samir, as does Daivari, and Daivari stomps Samir more. Tag to Nese, Nese brings Samir up to CHOP! Nese whips Samir, Samir leaps but into Nese’s arms! Nese pops Samir up but Samir rolls Nese, TWO! Samir gets around, crucifix takedown to the cover, TWO! Inside Cradle, TWO! Samir hits an arm-drag and armlock!

Tag to Sunil, the brothers double whip and double hip toss to double elbow drops! Cover, TWO! Sunil wrenches Nese’s arm, YANKS it, and again, then tags Samir. The Singhs mug Nese, Samir brings Nese around but Nese blocks the suplex. Nese scoops Samir, Samir slips out and waistlocks, but Daivari saves Nese from the O’Conner Roll. Samir runs back in, Nese gets away so Samir BLASTS Daivari off the apron! Daivari bounces off the desk but Nese CLOBBERS Samir! Nese tags Daivari while Sunil protests, but the #PremierDinero stomp away on Samir. Daivari stops as the ref counts and argues that he knows the rules, then drags Samir up.

Daivari lines up the shot and BOOTS Samir down! And again! Daivari eggs Samir on, stomps him more, then digs his boot in! Fans boo but Daivari drags Samir up to throw him out to the apron. Daivari brings Samir through ropes, throws haymakers while Samir is stuck, but the ref backs him off. Samir flops down, Daivari drags him over and mocks Bollywood before he stomps Samir down. Tag to Nese, Nese drags Samir into the body scissors! Nese squeezes, Samir endures and Sunil coaches his brother on. Nese rains down fists on Samir but fans rally up. Nese drags Samir up but Samir throw body shots. Samir shoves Nese away but is caught!

POWERSLAM to LION SPLASH! Cover, but Sunil breaks it! Sunil saves his brother but everyone’s down! Fans rally up, Sunil forgets he’s not legal and the ref wants him to know that. Nese whips Sunil but Sunil sends Nese out. Daivari runs in but he’s sent out! Samir springboard CROSSBODIES them both down!

Samir puts Daivari back in, climbs up top as Daivari staggers, FLYING ELBOW! Tag to Sunil and he goes up top, to MACHO ELBOLLY BOLLY BOLLY! Cover, Nese breaks it! Samir CLUBS away on Nese but Nese throws body shots! Nese whips, Samir reverses but Nese kicks back! Samir clotheslines Nese out hard, but runs around into Daivari’s URENAGE! Sunil rolls Samir up! TWO!! SUPER- NO! Daivari blocks the kick, spins Sunil and hammerlocks, LION’S LARIAT!! Daivari & Nese win!

Winners: Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari, by pinfall

The Persian Lion earns a big win for him and Nese! With both the Cruiserweight Championship and even NXT Tag Team Championships up for grabs, will these 205 Live OG look to be future champions together?

 

August Grey VS Ashante “Thee” Adonis!

Both #RetroAG and The Braggadocios have been building momentum slowly but surely, and now these two collide in a showdown of the new wave! But with the NXT Cruiserweight Championship Unification on the horizon, who will be in pole position of the title chase?

The bell rings and Adonis circles with Grey. Fans are on Grey’s side but Adonis shrugs that off. They tie up, Adonis gets the arm, wrenches to a wristlock, but Grey reaches for a leg. Adonis cranks the arm, Grey rolls to wrench back, but Adonis wrenches again. Grey reaches and gets a ropebreak, then slips through the ropes to bring Adonis around the corner, and he wrenches Adonis back! Adonis slaps the wristlock away and resets with Grey. They tie up, Grey waistlocks, but Adonis bucks, only to end up in the O’Conner Roll! TWO, but Grey rebounds for a Superman Clutch! TWO, Adonis ducks a haymaker, runs, and turns back drop into sunset flip!

Grey sits on the cover, TWO and Adonis finishes the sunset! Grey rolls through, gets the legs and catapults Adonis into buckles! Roll up, TWO!

Adonis pushes Grey down, drags him around, and drops an elbow. Fans rally and duel, Adonis drops more elbows, but Grey dodges! Adonis shakes out the arm, Grey throws body shots, but Adonis forearms back! These two brawl back and forth, Adonis knees low and whips, to SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Grey is still in this but Adonis keeps focus.

Adonis brings Grey up at the ropes with a chinlock, grinds him down, and thrashes him about as fans start to rally. Grey fights up, Adonis throws him down with the chinlock, but Grey keeps fighting. Adonis squeezes tight and thrashes more as the fans duel. The ref checks with Grey but he’s still fighting. Grey fights up, throws body shots, Adonis CLUBS Grey but Grey throws haymakers! They brawl again with big forearms, Grey gets the edge but Adonis shoves him for the AirDrop! Grey flops out of the ring and a ring count starts. Adonis catches his breath while Grey drags himself up to the apron. Adonis drags Grey up the rest of the way but Grey shoulders into him!

Grey goes to the corner, counter punches Adonis but Adonis grabs an arm! Grey fights that, to YANK Adonis into buckles! Grey goes up, springboard CROSSBODY! Adonis flounders up into haymakers and CHOPS from Grey! Grey LARIATS, back elbows, and then spins Adonis to a jawbreaker and NECKBREAKER! Grey kips up and fires up with the fans, scooping for the EMERALD FLOWSION! Cover, TWO! Adonis survives and Grey grows a little frustrated. Grey gets Adonis up again, reels him in, back suplex but Adonis lands on his feet! Adonis shoves Grey and hits a FLAPJACK! Adonis kips up now and he fires up, too!

Grey wants a waistlock, Adonis switches and spins him, the discus is a feint for the SPINNING ROUNDHOUSE! Cover, TWO!! Grey survives and Adonis grows frustrated now. Adonis drags Grey back up, Grey ROCKS him then reels him into chicken wings! SO MUCH- NO! Adonis shoves Grey, Grey’s leg jams but Grey still dodges! Adonis runs in but is sent into buckles! Grey gets the chicken wings again, SO MUCH PRETTIER!! Cover, Grey wins!!

Winner: August Grey, by pinfall

The hot streak gets hotter as Grey gets to four wins in a row! Wait, wait, wait. Daivari returns, and raises Grey’s hand in victory?! Grey breaks free of Daivari, none of this is because of him! But will Grey still have to worry about the Persian Lion when he should be focused on the future undisputed Cruiserweight Champion?


My Thoughts:

Another good 205 Live for another solid 30 minutes. The tag match was pretty good, and it seems to work that Daivari & Nese win. They may not have started as a tag team like the Singh Brothers, but Nese and Daivari have been stronger on 205 Live so them winning keeps them strong on 205 Live. I do hope there is hope for them as a tag team in the NXT Tag Division since we’re going to be down Lorcan & Burch for half a year, and we’re out of the Undisputed Era combinations now that the group is broken up and Bobby Fish is still out injured. Even if Daivari & Nese just end up jobbers to the stars, at least they’d be on NXT from time to time, like Ever-Rise are.

Grey VS Adonis was a very good match, and it definitely makes a good case for Grey moving up to get his turn at a title opportunity. Escobar VS Devlin could go either way as a Ladder match, but I have a feeling it will be Escobar winning just for the ease of taking on the rest of the Cruiserweights in the States since there are plenty of choices left on 205 Live. A bit of a shame for Devlin, he’s been the better character and wrestler, but WWE will of course do the thing that’ll work better for them, even if this is all NXT.

My Score: 8.1/10

Andrew’s AJPW Champion Carnival Results & Match Ratings: 4.11.2021

Day 3 of the Champion Carnival had video on demand issues, so it wasn’t uploaded until the 12th. Hopefully Day 3 continues the positive momentum the first two days have already created!

Day 3 of the Champion Carnival had video on demand issues, so it wasn’t uploaded until the 12th. Hopefully Day 3 continues the positive momentum the first two days have already created!

Hard to say I wasn’t a little annoyed the VOD took so long to post, but better late than never; especially when the next event isn’t until the 17th.

Anyway though! Zeus looks to topple the current Triple Crown champion and continue his undefeated Carnival streak and Ashino has to do something to get off the bubble; but Kento is a big ask. We could be looking at a quick favorite to win as well as the walking dead.

Let’s hope nothing too drastic happens! Check it out!

Match Ratings:

  • Jake Lee vs Koji Doi: Jake wins via D4C @8:10 – **
  • Shuji Ishikawa vs Yuma Aoyagi: Ishikawa wins via Single Leg Cradle @11:13 – ***
  • Kento Miyahara vs Shotaro Ashino: Ashino wins via Grapevine Ankle Lock @12:11 – *** ½
  • Zeus vs Suwama: Zeus wins via Jackhammer @19:52 – *** ¾

 

Results:

Jake Lee vs Koji Doi

Total Eclipse inner faction fighting! Since Jake is the leader, he starts off in typical heel leader fashion telling Koji to lie down and eat the pin. Koji lies down; Jake drapes himself in a cocky cover, so Koji goes for the crucifix at the 2 count. Jake snaps up and he looks shocked that Koji went against an order, but then we get to a match.

Koji does a solid job keeping Jake off balance with power attacks, Shoulder Tackles and an interesting Football Tackle with the lift and slam. Jake eats a decent amount of offense, including a few short arm Lariats, before he starts stabilizing with Knee Lifts and Yakuza Kicks.

Lucky for Jake, even though Koji countered the D4C once, after Giant Killing, Koji wasn’t countering anything. Jake hits D4C and gets his second win of the tournament! Not a flashy match honestly felt a little silly at points with how quiet and echoed the arena made the match feel. Hopefully the setting doesn’t continue to plague the atmosphere of the matches.

Shuji Ishikawa vs Yuma Aoyagi

Now this was decent, though the hollow quiet atmosphere of venue is really detracting from the matches. Yuma was trying to find openings, but Shuji continued to run him over and abuse him with power early. And it was during these slower spots, the deafening silence of the venue made for weird watching.

Even though Shuji hit a Scoop Slam into the corner of the arpon, multiple Tsunamis and a flashing Scoop Fire/Thunder Driver, Yuma stayed resilient. Yuma nearly made the bigger man tap in End Game, but Shuji was able to find the ropes. Yuma hits an O’Connor Roll into the Japanese Leg Clutch, Shuji manages to get out of that, goes for a Tsunami, Yuma slides and tries to scoop Shuji for a Roll-Up, but at two Shuji manages to reverse the Roll-Up, grab a single leg and keep Yuma down for a three count!

Even though I have yet to be convinced by Yuma, the fact he got a finish that still made him look strong while putting up a good fight against a decorated opponent like Ishikawa; that says a lot about his potential rise on the card.

Kento Miyahara vs Shotaro Ashino

Ashino is in the unenviable position of last place after two days. With a 0-2 record, he really REALLY needs this…and he of course has Kento as his roadblock. They’ve traded wins in the past, and come off as rivals who don’t really like one another.

The match starts quick with Ashino shooting the half, grabbing a leg and searching for the Ankle Lock early. Kento fights out, but Kento is surprised and Ashino stays on him. Ashino pulls Kento to the ring post and wraps Kento’s left leg against the post a few times. Kento fires and Snake Eyes lands Ashino into the corner of the apron.  This gives Kento plenty of time to walk off the early ankle damage and play into his cocky arrogance, all while messing with the referee and his opponent.

Whenever Ashino managed to get back in the ring, he was greeted by Blackouts to the front and back of his head. It wasn’t really until Kento went for the Shutdown Suplex, that Ashino hit a second wind. Both men trade German Suplexes, Ashino continues with a Deadlift Overhead suplex and he starts building momentum back.

He teases a German from the apron to the floor, but Kento blocks, fights off and Piledrives Ashino instead. Kento fires off Blackouts as Ashino once again barely beats the count out, but after landing his ninth Blackout of the fight, Ashino grabs the left leg, rolls through and goes for the Ankle Lock. Kento tries to fight off, but Ashino refuses to let go, readjusting, rolling through, pulling Kento back into the center away from the ropes; eventually dropping down into the Grapevine. Kento has no other option but to submit!

Ashino finally gets on the board, and Kento joins him in the 1-2 portion of the standings! I wonder how much the ankle will play into the rest of Kento’s carnival.

Zeus vs Suwama

Last year during Zeus’ carnival winning run, he had a match with Suwama which resulted in Suwama sustaining an arm injury. Thanks to this knowledge, and the sting of a failed challenge when Suwama recovered, Zeus came out attacking the arm and trying to replicate some of his success from last year.

The beauty in Zeus’ arm attacks, is not only were the Key Lock and Arm Bars effective to play on the old injury, they also inhibited Suwama from executing the Last Ride Powerbomb. Zeus’ attack really did great, as well as giving him the power advantage against someone who can usually match him in that department. Zeus lifted out of Boston Crabs, met Suwama head on with Biceps Explosions and even broke out the Frog Splash a few times.

In a nice reference, Suwama was able to fight out of the Arm Trap Facelock this time, but Zeus had too much of an advantage. Zeus peppered in Chokeslams, Lariats, another Frog Splash and eventually ended the match with an impactful Jackhammer. This was a solid struggle throughout, injured only by the awkward venue setting.

Who will be the first person to hang a Carnival loss on Zeus since 2019?

Overall Score: 6.75/10

While there wasn’t really a lot to complain about in terms of action, I really hated the venue. With the Japanese crowd rules of not being able to scream and having to just clap or stomp, it was very noticeably irritating in this event.  Slower moments felt empty and stupid, almost back to the empty Quarantine times, which definitely impact smaller events and smaller companies.

Aside from that, we got a lot of really great finishes. Ashino finally getting on the scoreboard AND over Kento is great. Zeus continuing his streak from last year, Jake well…doing Jake things and Shuji looking strong as a current title holder should. Otani and Sato were missed a little today, but let’s check out the standings!

 Standings:

  1. Zeus: 3-0 – (6 Points)
  2. Shuji Ishikawa: 2-1 – (4 Points)
  3. Jake Lee: 2-1 – (4 Points)
  4. Shinjiro Otani: 1-1 – (2 Points)
  5. Kohei Sato: 1-1 – (2 Points)
  6. Shotaro Ashino: 1-2 – (2 Points)
  7. Kento Miyahara: 1-2 – (2 Points)
  8. Suwama: 1-2 – (2 Points)
  9. Koji Doi: 1-2 – (2 Points)
  10. Yuma Aoyagi: 1-2 – (2 Points)
