STARDOM Grow Up Stars Day 3 Results/Review (3/21/2018)

Published

on

Day 3 is up and running and since the card only contains five matches, gives me time to watch it rather quickly to get on to the next stuff on my list. So let’s just dive right in and also no new tournament match for this one as it appears to be on their March 25th show.

 

Singles Match
Hiromi Mimura vs. Nao Yamaguchi

Review:  So this will be Hiromi’s last singles match before her final match at the March 28th show and is fighting Nao, who is on her second match already after her debut at the previous show. This is probably just me, but the attire Nao’s wearing isn’t really working for me and is very close to what Shiki has, unless they just decide to let them be a tag team down the road, but til then I would change it. Nao’s progress however seems to be coming along nicely as she showed a little bit more compared to her last match. Hiromi was able to actually pick up the win with the La Magistral and makes sense for her to win since Nao is still in the learning stages, so her losing her matches is normal, as long as she grows.

Recommended:  Nothing special, but nothing terrible either. Watch it if you want, otherwise just skip.

 

Three Way Match
Bea Priestley vs. Shiki Shibusawa vs. Xia Brookside

Review:  If I had to pick a downside for these Three Way matches, it would be that they all seem rather short like some don’t even last ten minutes which is odd for a triple threat and how they book them there. But, I guess it’s their way of doing things, even though hard to show a lot in that short amount of time. This match though wasn’t that great except for a couple of interactions with Bea and Xia, but Shiki felt a little bit out of place here in this match. Match would end in six minutes with Bea pinning Shiki with a Curb Stomp which just looked terrible.

 

Recommended:  No.

 

Six Man Tag Team Match
Konami, Jungle Kyona & Natsuko Tora vs. AZM, Momo Watanabe & Viper

Review:  Oh hey, Vipers back, always a pleasure to see her in the ring and back in STARDOM and if you don’t know who Viper is, she was also known as Piper Niven from WWE’s Mae Young Classic. I don’t know exactly what’s going on here, but the winner of this match apparently gets curry according to one of the interviews? I wanna fight for curry… Anyway, this match was much better than the previous one and a pretty solid trios match to go along with it. It was a lot of fun with good showcasing of the participants, humor, sequences, and just teamwork. Konami is slowly becoming one of my favorites in STARDOM since she’s really good in the ring, then again she was trained by Asuka so it makes sense. Viper picked up the win for Queen’s Quest when she hits the running Senton on Natsuko, meaning Queen’s Quest also wins the curry! Until Jungle snatches it away from them, like who the hell steals curry?! But they do get it back from them, that curry better be good.

Recommended:  Solid tag match, so I don’t see why not.

 

Tag Team Match
Faby Apache & Mary Apache vs. HZK & Io Shirai

Review:  We get a special treat with an appearance from the Apache Sisters who are mostly known for their work in AAA and about twenty years worth of experience each. Io seems pretty excited about it since they helped her out when she was in Mexico six or seven years ago, so stuff like this is usually good. We get a pretty sweet lucha style opening between Io and Mary to get the crowd into it right away and I gotta say, I’m really digging the Apache Sisters here, I like their styles, how they move, how they work, and just the chemistry they had against Io and HZK, which gives us another solid tag team match. Nice and fast paced action and great work from all four of these women right here. Mary Apache would get the win with a modified Kneebar on HZK while Faby had Io up in a Torture Rack to end it, I hope to see more of them again and maybe another match against Io and another member of Queen’s Quest.

Recommended:  Definitely worth a watch, nice ten minute action.

 

Six Man Tag Team Match
Mayu Iwatani, Tam Nakano & Toni Storm vs. Hana Kimura, Kagetsu & Natsu Sumire

Review:  Before the match we get Toni, Mayu, and Tam saying Kanazawa over and over again for some odd reason, maybe just how it sounds, but got a laugh out of it. Oedo Tai remind me a bit of Los Ignorables de Japon with how they’re supposed to be the heels of the company, but they’re also entertaining and the crowd loves them, and I do too. We get our good old moment of Tam Nakano abuse from Oedo Tai for part of the beginning of the match, that is until all six of them fight on the outside and we have Kagetsu taking Mayu to the balcony and OH MY GOODNESS, Kagetsu is hanging Mayu over the balcony with her entrance robe! She even has her up there for a good ten seconds or more and then she just drops her down, but she was caught by the trainee’s…least I hope. Now back to our daily abuse of Tam since they do have an Exploding Death Match coming up on April 1st, and now Kagetsu pours a drink on her, the poor thing.

Mayu and Toni had little time in the ring so there was more time to focus on the story between Tam and Oedo while not having Mayu and Toni do too much, especially, if they’re actually gonna fight each other, least I hope so if I knew what the actual card was and what date for it. Eventually Toni would get the win over Natsu with the Strong Zero after having an entertaining twenty-one minute match. But Kagetsu isn’t done yet as she attempts to attack Toni after the match, but doesn’t last too long once Mayu made the save. After that little mess, we have the roster throwing balloons at each other and having a good time as they close out the show.

Recommended:  Nice and entertaining, so yes.

Overall:  Despite the first two matches being bad, the tag team matches made it better as they all had their own thing going to make each one stand out compared to the others. Not a great show, but still a small fun one regardless.

Favorite Match: Faby Apache & Mary Apache vs. HZK & Io Shirai

Least Favorite Match: Bea Priestley vs. Shiki Shibusawa vs. Xia Brookside

Score: 6.5/10

See you all for the next one as we find out who fights Starlight Kid in the final round!

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 4.18.2024

Motor City Machine Guns either go out on their backs, or head to Rebellion as champs! Lets see how they finish their current run in TNA!

Published

on

No burying the lead here! The Main Event is The System versus Motor City Machine Guns, and it’s the Go Home episode before Rebellion! So we’re guaranteed a damn good tag match, and we should get either new wrinkles, or ways to keep the storylines cooking going into the Pay-per-View.

With all the rumors and innuendo about the Guns being on their way out, I think we all assume that MCMG is losing, but my inner fanboy is still excited.

Ratings:

  • Little Guido w/New FBI vs Hammerstone: Hammerstone wins via Torture Rack – SQUASH
  • LSG vs Joe Hendry: Hendry wins via Standing Ovation – SQUASH
  • Mustafa Ali & GYV vs Cody Deaner, Jake Something & Rhyno: Ali wins via 450 Splash – ** 3/4
  • Rosemary w/Havok vs Jody Threat w/Dani Luna: Rosemary wins via Spear – ***
  • Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) w/Alisha Edwards: System wins via Roster Cut + Knee Party – *** 1/4

 

Results:

So we kick off the match with Josh coming out to commentary again to watch Hammerstone’s match. They really need a new way to try and keep heat without reusing the same tired gimmick of “ring side seat” to a Squash match.

Little Guido w/New FBI vs Hammerstone

Guido tries to shoot the half, but Hammerstone shrugs him off, lifts him like a child and runs him into a corner, few short shots and then just tosses him across the ring. Hammer gets a little distracted talking smack to Josh and eats a foot, but then tosses Guido with the ole Sack of Shit move and keeps working over Guido.

Hammer shoves Clayton, and provokes him to push him back right in front of the referee. She ejects them, Guido tries to take advantage but when he goes for the pinfall Hammer kicks out immediately and presses Guido out of thing through the ropes. Continues to dog walk Guido, puts the head gear on the ECW Original and then Torture Racks him while staring directly at Josh, and of course picks up the submission victory.

LSG vs Joe Hendry

Hendry cuts a little promo, mentioning the Fat Uncle Phil joke…something about shopping at the TOP Dollar Store. Solid mic work.

LSG is a damn good local talent, he’s been seen in ROH and AEW in the past (perhaps others, but that’s what comes to mind immediately for me), but we all know this is an enhancement match. A few nice chain wrestling spots early, but Hendry uses his power to stop the smaller wrestler, Sack of Shit into Standing Ovation and the match is over quickly.

Mustafa Ali & GYV vs Cody Deaner, Jake Something & Rhyno

Well okay, having Deaner ask the crowd if they wanted a 3v2 or their third member…RHYNO…is pretty much a no brainer in Philly. But at least the gimmick isn’t quite as cringe as I expected.

Jake starts with Zack Gibson and throws him around. Jake goes for the tag and Deaner asks the crowd who Jake should tag, and the crowd picks Rhyno. Rhyno Whips Gibson into a corner, Drake actually softens the impact, allowing Gibson to fire back, tag out, but Rhyno levels both GYV members and then even knocks Ali off the apron. Rhyno tries to call to the crowd to tag in Deaner and that goes over like a fart in church. He tags him in anyway, and the crowd is kinda dead and doing whatever it wants after the obvious ECW chants when Rhyno tagged in.

GYV take a couple lumps but they of course start to work over Deaner and capture some momentum. Solid tandem work from GYV, they cut off Deaner from making a tag and goad Jake a little to cause the ref to block off the babyfaces so the heels can take a few shortcuts. Cody eventually makes the tag to Rhyno, hot tag, he tries to set up the Gore but the GYV manage to stop him in his tracks and hit an Enzuigiri to daze the Man Beast, he falls to his corner and Jake tags himself in. Jake literally runs them all over, tags in Cody and Launches him from the Top Rope into Zack Gibson. Ali makes the save and Jake tries to get his hands on Ali, but the GYV keep throwing themselves at him, literally. The triple team finally gets the best of Jake, they hit 3 Dives and then post Jake, so they gather around Cody like hyenas.

They forgot about Rhyno, he’s set up for a Gore, he Gores Drake, Gibson and Ali take out Rhyno, but then Cody starts to fight back. Ali stops Deaner’s offense with an Avalanche Sunset Bomb, then hits his 450 Splash. Jake barely misses being able to break up the pin.

Rosemary w/Havok vs Jody Threat w/Dani Luna

Jody tries to start quickly with Shoulder Tackles, Lariats and Scoop Slams, and it does seem somewhat effective. Rosemary is having trouble finding offense against the intensity, but she keeps kicking out. Shotgun Dropkick finally gives Rosemary an opening, she goes into full mount and rains down strikes. Rosemary shoves Jody into a corner and Bites her in the corner. Jody tries to fight out, they go across and Rosemary catches her with the legs and puts her in the Upside Down. Splash in the corner from Rosemary, Exploder Suplex and Jody is eating a lot of offense.

Rosemary looks like she’s caught after she gets tripped up into the ropes and Jody goes for her Rope Knee into the German, but Rosemary dodges. Rosemary hits her own suplex and pulls out a beautiful Last Chancery! I haven’t seen her do that in a long time. Jody manages to fight to the ropes, Rosemary is a little slow to capitalize and eats a Pump Kick. Rosemary goes flying into the ropes, Jody hits the Double Knees into the German this time for 2, and they trade a few haymakers after that. Jody folds Rosemary with a low Lariat, Zombie rise spot a few times, Jody goes for a pinfall and Rosemary kicks out.

Havok jumps up on the apron, Dani meets her and they decide to step down, but the distraction was enough. Jody turns around and eats a Spear. Rosemary wins!

Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) w/Alisha Edwards

Eddie and Shelley start off, and its a very simple slow start. Mostly an early stalemate, the typical Japanese style the TNA seem to love to employ. Starters tag out, but then Shelley with the blind tag, Sabin Baseball Slides out, picks Eddie’s ankle and sends his face bouncing off the apron, while Shelley sneaks up being Myers and they hit a tandem move before we cut to commercial. Off of the commercial it looks like Eddie and Myers regained control. But a nice Jawbreaker from Shelley sends Eddie falling back into the MCMG corner. Dragon Screws to both legs from Sabin and Shelley, and we get the Dragon Screw dissection spot for the Guns.

Myers gets sick of things, tries to get involved, but Simultaneous Figure Fours from the MCMG makes The System look silly. Alisha does the classic “push the rope forward” gimmick to assist Eddie in breaking the hold. She keeps chirping at Shelley until she finally grabs his foot. Shelley doesn’t take kindly, tries to grab her by the hair but she gets away, Shelley eats a strike and falls back to the ropes so Lish can just throttle him with the rope, Sabin walks over and acts like he’s going to PK her and the look of disgust on her face is hilarious, like “how dare he threaten to kick her”. Would I be mad is Masha decides to team with Lish and they win the Knockouts Tag titles? No, because the Knockouts Tags are trash. But I still prefer Lish as valet/manager.

Shelley starts fighting back after another commercial break, Eddie tries to cut him off, but Sabin clocks Eddie and Shelley manages to make the tag and Sabin comes in. Lights up both System members, Kick off Tornado DDT, into a Running Gamengiri. Eddie tries to counter but Shelley assists, tandem strikes, Double Baseball Slide into the classic MCMG spot 5 Hole Dive! Keeping up with the classics Shelley stacks the System members on each other and hit the Missile Dropkick/Flatliner spot. As the Guns are rolling, Sabin accidentally catches Sabin with his foot and The System take control! They hit their pieces of the System Overload spot, but Sabin kicks out. Roster Cut attempt from Myers, but Shelley is back. High Speed Dirt, Machine Gun Sandwich, but Lish grabs Shelley’s foot when they’re setting up Skull and Bones. Shelley gets dropped on the turnbuckle and thrown out, Sabin eats the Roster Cut followed up with Boston Knee Party and System retains!

Its a little weird to have had the two commercial cuts and the fact there’s still Nic Nemeth to follow. So it feels a little flat, I hope this wasn’t their swan song match, because it was nice to see some classic spots, but it was entirely too abbreviated. 

Nemeth comes out, goes into the crowd and finds a kid with a kendo stick and borrows a beer from someone, so he does a bit of a Sandman tribute. Moose cuts off his promo basically immediately. He throws out the “can’t beat the system” line again, and Nic rolls with the punches well. Moose uses a few cute analogies about Nic having a failure laden past, but Nemeth bites back and its really damn good. He says he can see it in Moose’s eyes that he thinks he’s getting in the ring with Dolph Ziggler, but no, there is no more old Dolph Ziggler, just the new Nic Nemeth. And Moose’s cool seems to be slightly shaken after those words. Good promo.

Overall Score: 6.5/10

So this was okay, if it didn’t end as strongly as it did, I would’ve rated this much lower. Two squash matches in the beginning, reusing the Josh comes out to the announce table to watch trope is boring, hell even Clayton’s shove to Hammerstone was super lame looking. The Deaner match was luke warm at best, but things picked up around the Rosemary match.

Lets also not overlook the segments with ASH & Xia, Jonathan Gresham’s whole deal and EY having to return to the violence/sickness/world class maniac, whatever you want to call it, were all great building blocks. This definitely wasn’t what I would call a strong Go Home, but it didn’t hurt things for Rebellion. The whole injury of Cardona was addressed, which honestly sounded weird since Jordynne basically said she was expecting them to have a backup plan so she has a backup plan. I don’t really like how that video package came across.

But who knows, all I know is, this wasn’t an awful episode, it just wasn’t really strong either.  Here’s to hoping Rebellion Saturday is still strong.
