Walter is here!

The longest reigning NXT UK Champion ever, Der Ring General, is back on NXT UK! His soldiers in Imperium are in the states trying to dominate NXT USA, but Walter is here to say, “Recently, I have defended the NXT UK Championship twice in the same week, on two different continents.” And now, Walter is THE longest reigning champion in the modern WWE. “This title is now one of the most prestigious prizes, the grand prix of professional wrestling!”

But Walter is also here to remind everyone that his motivation and his mission have not changed. Any time Walter steps in the ring, he is still driven by the force to respect and restore the honor of this great sport. Walter will forever be the NXT United Kingdom Champion! Walter holds up his title, but then, who will step up and try to change all that?

 

NXT UK shares footage of Jordan Devlin arriving at BT Sports Studio earlier today.

The Irish Ace smiles, as he sees his demands have so-far been met. He has a lavish private locker room, and takes a moment to prepare for his return to NXT UK. That return, will be next!

 

Subculture speaks.

Since day one, Jinny’s been looking down on Dani Luna because she doesn’t fit Jinny’s “mold” for a WWE superstar. Flash Morgan Webster doesn’t want to even get started on how Joseph Conners has done the same to him. Conners wants to prove he’s worthy, but he’s only worthy of getting his head kicked in. If Joseph & Jinny want to talk about Subculture so much, then they’re in luck. It’ll be Dani & FMW taking on Jinny & Joseph in a mixed tag! Start from the bottom, fight to the top! That’s #Subculture!

 

Jordan Devlin VS Saxon Huxley!

The Irish Ace is back in action and already going big for his return! Will the Divine Beast of the Astral Plane have to fold his hand as Devlin cashes in?

The bell rings and Devlin circles with Huxley. Devlin avoids Huxley’s boot but Huxley corners him. The ref counts but Huxley tosses Devlin into the buckles. Devlin dodges Huxley to fires off haymakers and a CHOP! Huxley just gets mad! Huxley blocks a punch, wrenches the arm and ROCKS Devlin with body shots! Huxley TOSSES Devlin across the ring, then corner SPLASHES! Huxley headlocks and grinds Devlin down. Devlin pulls hair, puts Huxley on ropes, and the ref counts the ropebreak. Devlin wrenches at 4 to CLUB the arm and whip. Huxley reverses but Devlin dodges. Huxley dodges Devlin to run Devlin over! Huxley scoops, spins and SLAMS Devlin, then covers, TWO!

Devlin sputters but Huxley is after him with a facelock. Huxley thrashes Devlin around, but Devlin wrenches out hard! Devlin baits Huxley to the ropes and dumps him out! Huxley gets up in a huff and drags Devlin out of the ring! Huxley gets Devlin up to whip him HARD into barriers! Devlin tumbles over, Huxley drags him back to ringside and gets him up to SNAKE EYES off more barriers! The ring count is 8 of 10 but Huxley puts Devlin in at 9! Huxley gets Devlin up to bump off buckles then BOOTS him down! Huxley scrapes his boot off Devlin’s face again and again but lets off as the ref counts. Huxley runs side to side to KNEE Devlin in the corner!

The ref checks on Devlin but Huxley goes out to DRIVE-BY BOOT Devlin back into the ring! Devlin is dazed and Huxley drags him up at the ropes.

The ref counts, Devlin steps off and Huxley is huffing and puffing. Devlin KICKS Huxley, Huxley hits back but Devlin ROCKS Huxley! Devlin gets Huxley up to ROCK him with a haymaker! Devlin tries the ripcord but Huxley holds ropes! Devlin kicks Huxley, Huxley holds on, but Devlin keeps trying. Huxley choke grips and TWO HAND SLAMS Devlin! Cover, TWO!! Devlin survives and Huxley is beside himself! Huxley stomps around, slaps himself, and gets Devlin in a fireman’s carry. Devlin fights free, and HEADBUTTS Huxley in the back of his head! Devlin steadies himself, ripcord, DEVLINSIDE!! Cover, Devlin wins!!

Winner: Jordan Devlin, by pinfall

Devlin had to work off some rust and get back into the groove, but he got back in the win column! Will Devlin keep his ego in check to get back to some gold? Or will things only get harder from here on?

 

Pretty Deadly is here!

The NXT UK Tag Team Champions, Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley, are going to join commentary to watch the tag division in action! Will these self-proclaimed “tasty dishes” see something appealing after the break?

 

Gallus meets with Sid Scala in his office,

Mark Coffey & Wolfgang are making sure cameras get this as they argue about who is better overall. Mark says he can do at least 10 things better than Wolfgang. Like for one, throwing! Don’t throw Sid’s laptop! He knows Gallus makes a great team, but after talking with Johnny Saint, it has been decided that Gallus will prove themselves worthy in singles competition. Wolfgang likes that! Mark says he can beat his guy faster than Wolfgang does his guy! But then Sam Gradwell barges in, sees Gallus there, and apologizes for interrupting this “pointless bit of nothing,” and will check with Sid later. “In a bit, YOGURTS!”

Wolfgang calls dibs on Gradwell! Sid says he will see what he can do, so Gallus goes for a pint. And Wolfgang makes it a competition again by saying he can drink more faster than Mark. But will the Thunderstorm be a bit too much to make a bet over?

 

Symbiosis w/ Eddie Dennis VS Andy Wild & Dan Moloney!

The Welsh Dragon has helped Primate and Tyson T-Bone evolve, but they still need something to make them the alphas of NXT UK. Will making a meal of Wild and Moloney be what they need to go after Pretty Deadly’s titles?

The teams sort out, Moloney starts with Primate and they circle. They tie up, Primate kick slow then CLUBS Moloney down. Moloney gets to ropes, Primate headlocks and grinds Moloney, but Moloney throws body shots. Moloney powers out but Primate rams his shoulder into him! Primate headlocks again, Moloney powers out but Primate  blocks the hip toss to uppercut and knee low! Primate has Moloney in a facelock now, but Moloney powers up! Wild tags in, Moloney WRINGS Primate, and Wild runs Primate over! Primate gets to the Symbiosis corner, T-Bone tags in. T-Bone ties up with Wild, they go around, and T-Bone puts Wild in a corner. Wild dodges the haymaker to headlock!

T-Bone throws body shots, powers out, and Wild rams him! T-Bone stays up to RAM Wild into a corner! T-Bone drives his shoulder in again and again, but lets off as the ref counts. Wild dodges, snapmares and drops elbows on T-Bone! Cover, TWO! Wild wrenches, tags Moloney, but T-Bone gets away. Moloney dropkicks, waistlocks but T-Bone bucks free. T-Bone catches Moloney’s crossbody and makes it a BACKBREAKER! T-Bone gives Moloney a FALL AWAY SLAM! T-Bone KICKS Moloney towards the corner, gets him up and CLUBS him hard in the back! Dennis likes that as T-Bone tags Primate.

T-Bone drapes Moloney out along the ropes for Primate to springboard ax handle Moloney down! Primate CLUBS Moloney then hits a BIG back suplex! Primate stays between Moloney and Wild and stomps Moloney towards the Symbiosis corner. Primate DECKS Moloney, gets him up and clubs him more. Tag to T-Bone, Symbiosis whip Moloney HARD into the corner then throw him down, for a DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, TWO! Moloney flounders away but T-Bone stops him from reaching Wild. Moloney throws hands but T-Bone gets around to hit a BACKBREAKER! Moloney writhes but still tries to kick T-Bone. T-Bone stomps Moloney then puts him in a corner.

Moloney BOOTS T-Bone, hops up, then leaps, but into T-Bone’s arms again! T-Bone tries another Fall Away Slam but Moloney lands on his feet! Moloney JAWBREAKERS then dropkicks T-Bone down! Moloney hurries, hot tag to Wild! Hot tag to Primate but Wild goes Wild on Symbiosis! But Primate CLUBS him from behind! Symbiosis whips Wild into their corner, but Wild still fights back with a BOOT and a forearm! Wild DECKS T-Bone and clinches Primate for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Wild hurries to cover, TWO!! Dennis is frustrated as Primate staggers about. Wild gets Primate, whips him out then back in hard, but Primate ducks under! EXPLODER!

Wild staggers up into Primate’s SPEAR! Tag to T-Bone, then tag right back. T-Bone scoops and Primate climbs, POWERSLAM and then a forearm for Moloney! Primate hits a DIVING HEADBUTT on Wild, covers, Symbiosis win!

Winners: Symbiosis, by pinfall

Pretty Deadly talks smack on dry, leathery T-Bone and pale, hairy Primate, but will they be made to eat their words along with their own teeth should this dangerous duo come for their gold?

 

Teoman speaks.

“Oliver, I won’t allow you to interfere with my business again.” But he’s in a good mood because his family is happy, so he is happy. He reminds everyone that he is willing to put every member of the NXT UK roster in the hospital. Oliver’s family doesn’t want to see him in the hospital, right? And what about Ashton? Would he even visit Oliver? Ashton is Oliver’s tag partner, not his family, so the answer is NO. That is their weakness. The Evil Eye sees all. Will it help Teoman see Oliver’s tragic future and make it a reality?

 

NXT UK Women’s Championship: Kay Lee Ray VS Meiko Satomura!

The Scary Queen of Scots claims that she will reign then, now and forever! She and the Final Boss faced once before, and KLR came out the winner. But will Meiko use what she learned in that first match to turn the tables and take the throne?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and for the second time on the NXT UK brand in the year 2021, we witness a historic battle!

KLR and Meiko stare down, KLR wondering if Meiko is ready for the rematch she wanted. Meiko steps and KLR scrambles back. KLR rushes Meiko, Meiko dodges and fires off KICKS! KLR blocks a kick to elbow the leg but Meiko still KICKS back! Meiko throws forearms and has KLR in the corner! The ref counts, KLR shoves Meiko but Meiko dodges the superkick! Meiko fires off more forearms, then KICKS KLR in the leg again. Meiko has KLR in another corner, the ref counts as Meiko digs her palms into KLR’s face, but Meiko lets off at 4. KLR rushes in, gets around, and Gory Especials! Meiko fights out, fireman’s carries, but KLR fights free!

KLR shoves Meiko away then bails out to throw a tantrum! Meiko pursues and ROCKS KLR with forearms, then KICKS! The ring count climbs as Meiko keeps kicking KLR around. Meiko puts KLR in, BT Sports Studio fires up, and KLR SUPERKICKS Meiko down to the floor! KLR goes out to fires off on Meiko in return! KLR puts Meiko in the ring now, then gets in to cover, TWO! KLR wraps onto Meiko with a chinlock, but Meiko endures, fights up and fights back with body shots. Meiko powers out but KLR whips. Meiko sees the drop down coming and KICKS KLR around some more! Meiko steps over the arm to mule kick KLR in the head!

KLR gets up, Meiko blocks her punch to wrench and KICK, KICK and SWEEP the legs! Meiko drops knees KLR’s chest, covers, TWO as KLR pulls hair! That’s different! KLR CHOPS Meiko down while the ref reprimands her. KLR gets Meiko up to CHOP her again! And CHOPS her against ropes! Meiko goes to a corner, KLR brings her out, but Meiko blocks the suplex. KLR CLUBS Meiko, cravats and snapmare rolls for a KICK! Cover, TWO! KLR is remembering how tough Meiko was the first time, but she strikes her pose. KLR runs in and CLOBBERS Meiko, then growls as she looms over her. Meiko sits up, KLR CLUBS her down!

KLR paces, brings Meiko up and reels her in for a suplex to GOURD BUSTER! Cover, TWO! But KLR drags Meiko into a KOJI KLUTCH! Meiko fights free to an STF!! KLR resists but Meiko still gets the crossface! KLR pries at the hold, reaches and crawls for ropes, to get the ROPEBREAK! Meiko lets off at 2, and BT Sports Studio is fired up as KLR drags Meiko to the apron. KLR spins Meiko to ROCK her with a forearm! KLR shoves Meiko back in, takes her time returning, and step-in KNEE DROPS! Cover, TWO!! Meiko survives KLR’s springboard improvisation, but KLR clamps onto her with a seated cobra twist. Meiko endures as KLR stretches and grinds her shoulders!

Meiko isn’t giving up, so KLR throws Meiko down by her hair! KLR seethes as she stands on Meiko’s face! The ref counts, KLR lets off and paces as she thinks. KLR brings Meiko up, whips her to a corner, but Meiko goes up and up, only to leap into a BIG forearm shot! Cover, TWO! Meiko isn’t done yet, she might be proving even tougher than last time. Meiko throws body shots, KLR clubs her and Gory Especials, but Meiko fights again! KLR ROCKS Meiko, tries again, but Meiko blocks and turns to a fireman’s carry! KLR fights to get the crucifix takedown to ghost pin, TWO! KLR tries a Canadian rack to get to the Gory, but Meiko slips out, spins KLR and hits a DDT!

Meiko fires up, runs, and handsprings but KLR dodges the kick! Wait, maybe a toe makes contact! Meiko covers, TWO! KLR finds a way to survive, but Meiko gets her up.

Meiko gets right to her feet and is smiling again! KLR can’t believe this as Meiko eggs her on! KLR SUPERKICKS!! Meiko falls, but rises again!? SUPERKICK!! Meiko still has life! KLR is furious, and she SUPERKICKS Meiko right in the nose!

KLR gets Meiko up but Meiko hits a HUGE SAIDO!! Meiko grins as she gets KLR back up, fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY BOMB!!! Cover, TWO!!! KLR survives and Meiko is shocked! KLR flounders to the ref but Meiko is aiming! Meiko runs in, into a SUPERKICK!! Gory Especial, GORY BOMB!!! KLR won’t end it here, she goes up top! SWANTON BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?!?!? Meiko survives and KLR is in disbelief! BT Sports Studio is thunderous as KLR panics and goes outside the ring. KLR gets her belt and wants to leave! She wants to use Champion’s Advantage! The ref stands in her way and wants her to get in the ring, but then Meiko is at the ramp!

KLR rushes in, Meiko dodges the belt shot and hits a DEATH VALLEY BOMB to the floor!! A ring count starts but Meiko drags KLR up and puts her in at 5 of 10.

Winner: Meiko Satomura, by pinfall (NEW NXT UK Women’s Champion)

Forever ends on June 10th, 2021, the 649th day of KLR’s reign! And it was a battle truly worthy of two of the best women in the WWE AND THE WORLD! Meiko raises the title over her head and streamers fly! She has dethroned the Scary Queen of Scots, what will it take to stop the Final Boss now?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome episode! For one, I am happy the main event got about 20 minutes. That is a main event length, and we got true main event, title match action. They did a great job making us think KLR was going to run away to avoid losing, but it was great that Meiko intercepted her and forced things to finish. I had a feeling this was finally the time, and it was! Meiko is our new champion! KLR could stick around since the series is tied, but she could also move on to NXT USA to mix it up in the other NXT Women’s Division. When we all say NXT has the best women’s division around, NXT UK needs to be included, and this is your evidence.

We also got some good matches made for the following weeks. The promo was horribly mic’d, but I like that Gallus is going to have separate matches. Wolfgang VS Gradwell is going to be a really good match. I don’t know who Mark could face that is considered tougher, unless he literally makes it a Beat the Clock Challenge, trying to beat Gradwell even faster than Wolfgang does, assuming Wolfgang beats Gradwell at all. Teoman has a good promo to call out Oliver Carter, and their match is going to be really good, but I think Teoman wins again. Smith & Carter might force Teoman to take them on in a tag situation, so who knows how that goes.

We also didn’t get much more on the stare down of Joe Coffey, Rampage Brown and Ilja Dragunov that ended last week other than a quick recap thing they had to open the night that I ended up skipping. It wasn’t much so whatever. Walter’s appearance to open the night was alright, but again, it didn’t build off anything from last week, either. They could’ve had him address the three men at the end of last week, but nope, just the usual, “I am Walter, I am the most dominant man in NXT UK, and I always will be.” I hope next week does better on that front. Maybe it starts with promos pointing out how Walter didn’t do jack, and the contenders argue about who steps up to him. Boom, there’s our Triple Threat.

I think it was rather amusing to have Pretty Deadly on commentary, ripping jokes on a Heel team like Symbiosis. Pretty Deadly are entertaining enough to be a Tweener team, making fun of Heels and Faces alike and letting fans choosing a side in the moment. Symbiosis of course wins, but it’s great how jobbers in NXT UK aren’t just scrubs. Wild & Moloney put up a great fight but in the end, T-Bone & Primate had better teamwork. Symbiosis can definitely get in the tag title mix, along with Gallus, Smith & Carter and Subculture. Oh, and let’s not forget Noam Dar & Sha Samuels and Moustache Mountain as possibilities if they really need to.

Subculture had a decent promo to set up the obvious mixed tag match we were getting, but I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t get it as Jinny & Joseph VS Dani & Andrews. Maybe Andrews is a little banged up and FMW is still fine, but it just seems a little off target from what it looked like. Devlin’s return was pretty great overall. He gets his great looking dressing room, he and Huxley have a very good match, but Devlin naturally struggles to give some drama to it. Devlin’s ego could be a good foil to Tyler Bate’s new Zen based modesty, we get a killer Heritage Cup match, and either way, Devlin’s building himself back up in NXT UK.

My Score: 8.5/10

Coverage

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 12.1.2022

After the holiday, we get on track for Hard to Kill. Deonna vs Mickie James is the main event…do we see Mickie’s career end tonight?

Published

on

With the holiday last week, I wasn’t home to cover IMPACT so it’s going to be a fun night of how much I remember and how well they frame the stories.

We’re on the road to Hard to Kill, so we need to remind people about Over Drive and then move forward. I’m also curious if we get any resolution on the VBD stare down after EY lost. I really don’t want EY to get kicked since that will be a sad group of mid card sacks of shit. But I guess we’ll see.

Ratings:

  • Rich Swann vs Bully Ray: Swann wins via DQ – * 1/2
  • Moose vs Bhupinder Gujjar: Moose wins via Lights Out – * 3/4
  • Steve Maclin vs Frankie Kazarian: Kaz wins via DQ – **
  • Last Rodeo: Deonna Purrazzo vs Mickie James: Mickie wins via Victory Roll – *** 1/2

 

Results:

We get the Over Drive highlights, so I’m guessing they did their usual Thanksgiving fun episode. Bully Ray walks out to start the show. Bully recaps things, explains how he kept his word while running down the crowd, intimidating children and doing solid heel work. 

It goes a little long, but thankfully Rich Swann eventually gets sick of the diatribe and rushes the ring. Swann gets in a few pot shots, but Bully bails out, tries to walk away and gets a plancha. The referee comes out and the match will kick off the show!

Rich Swann vs Bully Ray

Bully jaws a little, lays in some punches and power moves but Rich eventually turns the tide. The quick step over back kick and a Frog Splash for 1. But then Bully catches Rich on the top rope, Tree of Woe and starts wailing on him.

Bully keeps control of Swann until Swann drops down with the Jawbreaker and then we see him start using the speed and athleticism with kicks and top rope moves. Bully stifles Rich, goes for the Avalanche Senton as he flirts with the referee and misses. Rich hits a 450 Splash for 2, and then we see a little back and forth, before Bully grabs his chain and hits Rich in front of the referee. So the DQ happens but Bully doesn’t care. Bully gets a chair and other weapons from under the ring and starts beating on Rich.

Bully really likes these zip ties, Tommy Dreamer comes out to stop Bully though. They argue, Bully shoves Dreamer and then D’Amore hits the ring to try and quell this. Bully is defiant, even D’Amore is getting fired up and looks like he wants to fight Bully. Dreamer trying to keep D’Amore away from Bully is funny and pretty great. 

Moose vs Bhupinder Gujjar

Definitely not a match I expected. 

Moose gets in the early shots, but Gujjar starts to fire back and he gets some solid shots sending Moose to the outside. Gujjar takes to long to pander after the Dropkick and Moose has him eat a Big Boot into an Apron Powerbomb.

Gujjar shows more fire but Moose cuts him down. Moose goes for the Lights Out, but Gujjar dodges sending Moose into the corner. A few shots, Ripcord Knee, Slingblade and now…tuning up the Gargoyle Spear but Moose side steps it like Samoa Joe. Gujjar leapfrogs the Lights Out again, but Moose puts the brakes on and fires back connecting with the Lights Out and the win.

Moose starts to rant and says that he doesn’t want any of the idiots to to talk about Bully Ray or “Say his name”, and then JOE HENDRY’s music hits! There is already a “This is Awesome” chant just with Joe Hendry and Moose standing in the ring. Hendry fights Moose off mostly and Gujjar hits the awful Spear out of nowhere to get Moose to powder out. 

Steve Maclin vs Frankie Kazarian

Maclin starts off with some big strikes but Kaz ducks the line and hits the Springboard Reverse Elbow, and begins his offensive. Kaz beats on him in one corner then Maclin tosses him out and we see some back and forth. Neither are really landing big strikes, Maclin keeps some control with smaller strikes and knees against the ropes, but nothing really definitive.

A few of Maclin’s shots piss off Kaz and they Hockey Fight a little but Maclin keeps all of the control. Kaz does finally start a comeback and we get some of the classic Kaz Flying Forearm, Guillotine Legdrop and Slingshot Cutter. Maclin powder…and grabs a chair. So…another DQ finish?

Last Rodeo: Deonna Purrazzo vs Mickie James

They do a good job pacing things back and forth early on. Deonna fights back and starts to rock Mickie, the Slingshot into the bottom rope gives Deonna full control. Headlock Takeover and tries to wear Mickie down, Mickie fires back but Deonna refuses to give her the advantage. Mickie finally manages to slow her down with a Headscissors and now we get Mickie dropping Deonna down, Mickie goes to the top for the Thesz Press, but Deonna pushes her off.

Commercial break kicks in, and Deonna hits a Brainbuster for a few sequential pinfall attempts, but Mickie refuses to stay down. Camel Clutch from Deonna is wearing down Mickie but she manages to fight out. A few back elbows, then Mickie goes to the ropes to try offense but Deonna stifles. They struggle and Mickie finally gets Deonna on the outside, Dropkick and Thesz Press to the outside.

Mickie throws Deonna in, Missile Dropkick, Neckbreaker and looking for the Mick D-T, but Deonna stops it. Tornado DDT attempt from Mickie, but a Pump Kick from Deonna drops Mickie for a 2 count. Queen’s Gambit attempt, Superkick counter from Mickie for another 2. Mick D-T again, but Deonna blocks and swings around driving Mickie down into the Fujiwara. Venus Di Milo gets locked in too close to the ropes.

Locomotion Victory Rolls, Deonna tries to grab the tights, but Mickie counters through and picks up the win with a little tights pull of her own.

Jordynne’s music hits. She basically says they both put things behind them, and challenges Mickie at Hard to Kill. Career versus Title. 

Overall Score: 6/10

Honestly, Bully went on a little long, Moose’s promo was a little too similar to Bully just being a piece of shit. Plus the match quality aside from the main event was lame, two DQs is redundant…so yeah, not sure what to make of this.

Career versus Title for Knockouts is nice but then after that we had the vignette killing off Eric Young so VBD is a mid card faction. Which I guess is a little sad since this is the best Deaner we’ve ever seen, but he’s still not a credible on the card.

So it was a weird show, but Joe Hendry always makes things a little better.

World Tag League 2022: Alex Coughlin & Gabriel Kidd VS Bad Luck Fale & Chase Owens!

The #MechanicalBulls are barely holding on, but so are the General’s Jewels! Who gets a grip and claws their way back up before it’s too late?

The teams sort out and Kidd starts against Chase. Fans rally as the two circle, and they’re able to cheer “KIDDU! KIDDU!” The two tie up with knuckle locks, break, then go again. Chase waistlocks, but Kidd pries free to wrench. Chase spins and wrenches back to top wristlock. Kidd slips around, spins Chase and snapmares, then sits him up to a chinlock.

Tanahashi says he wants to have this every day, “so make sure you stay safe and healthy so that happens! Thank you for today!” Fans cheer for that, and they want the air guitar! Tanahashi borrows one from a fan on the east side, that he passes to Yano! Yano’s happy to be part of a rare air guitar duet! Master Wato even has his on commentary, so now it’s a trio! “SHIZUOKA~!” “OSU~!” “SHIZUOKA~!” “OSU~!” “LET’S ROCK!” The jam session is on!

Fans clap along as Yano is a natural! Fans cheer but they want the “EN-CO-RU! EN-CO-RU!” Tanahashi is never one to disappoint the fans, and Yano gets his chair guitar! They jam out again, and Yano can truly do it all! But he’s not gonna throw the chair to the fans, that’s dangerous. But the fans want another encore! Tanahashi says, “LAST ONE! Yano takes a seat in his chair for air DRUMS! Now it’s a real jam session! Big finish and…! Fans cheer the great performance, and Tanahashi gets the mic back. “Toru and Hiroshi are going for the trophies, so keep supporting us! And keep supporting NJPW! Finally, people of Shizuoka… ASHITEMASU~!”

Will love, energy and comedy propel the Joker & the Ace to the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships?

My Thoughts:

Another really good event and a really good round for World Tag League. I’m a little surprised Coughlin & Kidd haven’t gotten a win yet, but they always look solid in their matches. Great stuff back to back for the United Empire, even though Khan & Henare did lose. Khan helping Aussie Open was good stuff, though, and of course the House of Torture keep losing big time. Also, Naito & Sanada losing again puts the pressure on them, they could have an even stronger showing in the second half of this tournament. Tanahashi & Yano winning to close was a bit of a surprise, but they’re a great team and huge fan favorites, I would love to see them be a team for more than just World Tag League.

My Score: 8.7/10
