August Grey VS Mansoor!

#RetroAG has been so close to winning the big one, it could be right around the corner! Will ending Mansoor’s undefeated streak be just the thing Grey needs to reach that next level?

The bell rings and Mansoor circles with Grey. The fans rally for Mansoor as he ties up with Grey, and they go around. Mansoor gets the arm, wrenches it to a hammerlock, but Grey’s fans start rallying back. Grey reaches back and gets a headlock but Mansoor powers out. Grey comes back to flying mare! Grey has the headlock again, Mansoor fights up and rolls Grey off. Things speed up, Mansoor trips Grey up but Grey slips out of the headlock to get a headlock takeover back! Grey grinds, Mansoor makes it a cover, TWO! Mansoor chinbars and fights his way up to put Grey in a corner. The ref counts, Mansoor lets off but swings, only for Grey to dodge!

Mansoor arm-drags Grey around, but Grey gets the headlock again! Grey grinds Mansoor and Mansoor grows frustrated as fans fire up. Mansoor endures, fights up, Grey shifts to a facelock then back to a headlock. Mansoor powers out, Grey goes up and over and keeps moving, but Mansoor hurdles. Grey shoves, Mansoor wheelbarrows to victory roll to a STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Mansoor CLUBS Grey then CHOPS him! Mansoor whips Grey corner to corner but Grey reverses.

Mansoor goes up but Grey catches him to the EXTRA BACK SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Grey cravats Mansoor, Mansoor endures the neck wrench, and Mansoor fights up. Mansoor powers to an arm-drag, but Grey comes back. Mansoor dodges, follows and CLOBBERS Grey! Cover, TWO! Grey gets to a corner, Mansoor CLUBS him again, and fans rally up. Mansoor snap suplexes then floats to a cover, TWO! Mansoor is right on Grey with a chinbar and armlock. Grey endures, fans rally, and Grey arm-drags, only for Mansoor to drag him back to the chinbar! Mansoor cranks the holds, Grey endures, and Grey fights but Mansoor shifts to a facelock. Mansoor snap suplexes, covers, TWO!

Mansoor keeps on Grey with a chinbar, and reels him in to back elbow and then DISCUS! Cover, TWO! Grey sits up but Mansoor is right back with the chinbar. Fans rally as Mansoor digs forearms into Grey’s face. Mansoor chinbars again, Grey fights up and fireman’s carries! Mansoor slips off to shove Grey, then follows, but Grey ducks and dodges and sees Mansoor tumble out, so he DIVES! Direct hit into barriers! Grey puts Mansoor in, climbs up top, and tightrope CROSSBODIES! Mansoor flounders as Grey grits his teeth. Grey spins Mansoor around to jawbreaker and NECKBREAKER! Grey kips up and fires up, and so do the fans!

Grey brings Mansoor around, fireman’s carries, but Mansoor pops that to a victory roll, but misses the moonsault! Oklahoma Roll from Grey, TWO! Mansoor quickly covers, TWO! Ghost pin again, TWO! Grey gets around, waistlocks to the O’Conner Roll, TWO! Grey runs to SUPERMAN CLUTCH! TWO!! Mansoor gets up, Grey sunset flips but Mansoor rolls through to high stack!

Mansoor survives, Grey can’t believe it, but Grey stalks Mansoor to ropes. Mansoor throws back elbows but Grey clubs away on him! Grey back suplexes, but Mansoor lands on his feet to flip Grey! Mansoor whips Grey, scoops him for the ELEVATED COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Grey is in a drop zone and Mansoor heads up top! Mansoor MOONSAULTS, but has to roll as Grey dodges! SUPERKICK!!

Grey hooks Mansoor for the modified hammerlock and SPINNING SLAM!! High stack, TWO?!!? Mansoor survives and his streak is still alive, but Grey won’t stop now! Grey chicken wings, turns, SO MUCH PRETTIER!! But Mansoor flops out of the ring!! Grey can’t believe how close and yet how far he just was! The ring count climbs, Grey hears it’s 5, and considers his options. A ring out is technically a loss but does he want it that way? Grey doesn’t, and he goes out at 9! Grey wants this to end IN the ring! Grey puts Mansoor in as fans taunt, “That Was Stupid!” Mansoor catches Grey in an inside cradle! MANSOOR WINS!!

Winner: Mansoor, by pinfall

Maybe the fans have a point. Grey just snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, and Mansoor continues on to 44-0! Mansoor offers a handshake, and Grey takes it only for a moment before throwing it away. Will Grey make sure next time, he wrestlers smarter, not harder? Will Mansoor’s undefeated streak continue and lead him to the Cruiserweight Championship?

 

Chase Parker & Sunil Singh VS Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari!

#Bolly-Rise has tried and tried and tried, but for some reason, it just isn’t working. And so, if they lose once more, the crossover is OVER! Can the top secret plan Parker & Sunil came up with be what saves the franchise?

The teams sort out, Daivari starts with Sunil, and fans strongly support Bolly-Rise as they circle. They tie up, go around, and Daivari puts Sunil in an open corner. Daivari rams his shoulder in, fires off haymakers, then brings Sunil around to knee him low. Tag to Nese, the 205 Live OG mug Sunil, and then Nese CHOPS Sunil against ropes. Nese brings Sunil around to scoop but Sunil slips off. Nese bucks the O’Conner roll but runs into an arm-drag! Nese powers up to whip Sunil away but Sunil goes up and over and arm-drags again! Sunil has the armlock, wrenches and yanks the arm, then tags Parker. Bolly-Rise whip, Parker arm-drags to get the armlock!

Parker talks trash to Daivari but Nese fights up. Parker wrenches, elbow breakers, and tags in Sunil. Sunil goes up to drop ax handles on Nese’s arm! Sunil wrenches, wristlocks, and tags Parker in. Parker throws elbows, wrenches, then tags Sunil. Bolly-Rise double wrench, double shoulder, and Parker fist drops and Sunil basement dropkicks! Cover, ONE! Sunil whips but Nese blocks to reverse! Sunil boots Nese, elbows Daivari, and CHOPS Nese! And CHOPS! And throws haymakers! Sunil runs but Daivari trips him up! Nese CLOBBERS Daivari from behind! Samir Singh and Matt Marthel rush over but the ref has them stay back. Daivari and Nese get Sunil up and into the ring then tag.

Nese stands on Sunil, Daivari stomps Sunil’s stomach, then drags him up. Daivari throws Sunil to the apron, has him in the ropes and fires off haymakers! The ref counts, Daivari lets off at 4, and Sunil flounders back in. Daivari drags Sunil up and RAMS him into the corner! Cover, TWO! Sunil is still in this but Daivari drags him up. Tag to Nese, he and Daivari stomp Sunil more, and then Nese wraps on a chinlock. Nese grinds Sunil down, leans on him, but Sunil fights up. Sunil fights up, jawbreakers free, but Nese catches him before he can reach Parker! Sunil sunset flips, Nese rolls through to spinning KICK! Cover, TWO! Tag to Daivari, Nese feeds Sunil to Daivari’s sleeper hold!

Daivari thrashes Sunil around, but Sunil endures and stays up! Sunil arm-drags free but Daivari gets in Parker’s face! Daivari turns around into the WHEEL KICK! Both men are down, fans fire up, but Daivari anchors Sunil’s foot! Sunil gets free, hot tags to Parker and Nese! Parker BOOTS Nese, DECKS Daivari then LARIATS Nese! Daivari returns but Parker trips him up! Parker slingshots for an elbow drop on Daivari’s back! Parker tags Sunil back in, they combine, Gory BOMB to MACHO ELBOLLY BOLLY BOLLY! Cover, but Daivari breaks it! Daivari DECKS Parker but Sunil throws Daivari out! Sunil storms over to Nese but Nese throat chops him!

Nese has Sunil for the BULLDOG HOTSHOT! Then the PREMIER TRIANGLE! Tag to Daivari and he goes up top, LION SPLASH! Cover, Parker breaks it in time!! Samir is anxious ringside, is he up to something? Nese gets in to whip but Parker reverses. Parker slides but Nese jumps over to PLANCHA! They’re down, Samir sees Daivari and Sunil. Marthel distracts the ref, Samir throws something in, but Daivari grabs it! The ref sees it, it’s Daivari’s gold chain! Sunil rolls Daivari up, BOLLY-RISE WINS!!!

Winners: Chase Parker & Sunil Singh, by pinfall

Wait, was this part of the plan?! Was the secret plan of Parker & Sunil simply to get Marthel & Samir to cheat for them!? Either way, it means the crossover continues! Nese & Daivari are furious, but do they only have themselves to blame for not seeing that twist ending?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode! I really liked the opening match, Grey and Mansoor showed they could be very technical on top of their agility, and what a great story element for Grey to be defeated by his own sense of honor. He could’ve just won with the count-out, but in wrestling, that is always treated as the weak way out, and he wanted to end Mansoor’s streak with a pinfall. Mansoor turning it right around on him was great, I almost thought Grey was going to snap, but him being upset was good enough. Mansoor really should get an opportunity at the Cruiserweight Championship, regardless of who wins the TakeOver: Stand & Deliver “Unification” Ladder match. If a streak like Mansoor’s is going to end, let it be against the champion in a really great match.

The tag match was a lot of fun, especially with putting the story of Bolly-Rise possibly breaking up on it. It is a bit sad for Nese & Daivari as they were just getting going again, feeling like they could be more active on NXT, and then this happens. Of course, Samir & Marthel helped Parker & Sunil get the win through cheating, but it’s not like Daivari & Nese haven’t done similar things to others. If anything, that’s karma. I don’t know how much longer Bolly-Rise can continue but it can be a lot of fun if they are given a tag title contender’s match and can’t decide what combination of the four goes in. Samir-Marthel? Samir-Parker? Sunil-Marthel or Sunil-Parker instead? Do they Freebird the titles like the New Day? Or do the championships stay with the two that won them? There are many possibilities, but only if WWE/NXT/HHH sees the value in it.

My Score: 8.2/10

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!

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)
