Mathew’s Stardom 5Star Grand Prix Blue Stars Results & Review: Day 6

Utami has been slowed down a little after the Draw with Momo Watanabe. Will she still finish strong, or are we setting up a photo finish for the Final Day? Stardom Blue Stars Action!

Published

on

Well, everyone, we have two more shows to go through and the Grand Prix will be over. This has been a fun little tournament so far and it’s time to see who has a chance of making it into the finals. As of right now, we still have one undefeated person in the block who will be locked if she wins here.

Will the block be over before the final day? Remember to catch up with Red Stars as well!

Let’s find out as we…dive right in.

Star Rating System:

  • 0 Stars: Dave Meltzer
  • 1 Star: Vince Russo
  • 2 Stars: Tony Schiavone
  • 3 Stars: Eric Bischoff
  • 4 Stars: Bruce Prichard
  • 5 Stars: Jim Cornette

5 Star Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Momo Watanabe vs. Saya Iida

Review: Time for our first match of the block as Momo Watanabe takes on Saya Iida. This is a very crucial moment for Momo as she would need to win here to stay in the game or else she’s out. Saya already has no chance of winning but she could still ruin it for Momo right here and get her first pin. Will Momo be out of the race?

Bell is rung and we are underway. Saya charged in and hits a couple of Dropkicks onto Momo but she doesn’t fully budge. Saya attempted one more but Momo pushed her down and attempted a Boston Crab, which lead to Saya rolling herself to try and get a pin on Momo as she kicked. This isn’t the first time as Saya would attempt a couple more quick pins to hopefully tire Momo out for a surprise pinfall but has had no luck. The match itself was rather underwhelming and felt more like a cool down match for Momo after her encounter with Utami at the previous show.

Saya had one more attempt to do a flash pin but it looked like she slipped during the attempt as Momo kicked out regardless. Momo eventually got the victory after using the Package Driver to seal the deal. I have done a miscalculation with the standings as I forgot that both Maika and Syuri both have two matches left on the final show and because of this, Momo would br considered mathematically eliminated. Even if she won against Jungle, still wouldn’t be able to catch up if they won their remaining matches, which is a shame since I was hoping she’d win it all this year.

Rating: Tony Schiavone and a half


5 Star Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Natsuko Tora vs. AZM

Review: Up to our next match as we have Natsuko Tora taking on AZM. Both of these women are already eliminated with no chances of either advancing, but they still have to play out the rest of the tournament and we could get an entertaining match out of it. Which one of these two will win?

Before AZM could take off her jacket, Natsuko would attempt to attack her but AZM caught on and hits her instead. Now the match begin and we have the both of them fighting outside the ring for a moment with AZM getting the upper hand as she gets her back into the ring. I did wish this match had a little more of a risk with one of them being eliminated here to add a little but of suspense but that, unfortunately, doesn’t happen due to their low scores.

The two have a little Suplex battle, trying to hit it as they struggled but AZM would eventually hit it. AZM climbed the top rope but Natsuko would punch her and throw her off with a nice Snapmare, and hits a Lariat to get her down as she kicked out at two. Natsuko would hit one more Lariat and climbs up to hit a Frog Splash as AZM kicked out at two. Natsuko attempts the Swinging Side Slam as AZM turned herself during the move and rolled her up for a European Clutch as Natsuko kicked out. AZM climbs to the top rope and hits a Double Stomp with Natsuko kicking out again. AZM attempts the La Mistica amd almost had the Armbar locked in until Natsuko reached the ropes quickly. Saki distracts the referee, causing Natsuko to hit AZM with the chain. Natsuko picked her up in a Torture Rack position and spun her around to slam her down, almost letting go of her as Natsuko gets the victory.

Rating: Tony Schiavone and three quarters


5 Star Grand Prix Blue Stars Match
Utami Hayashishita vs. Maika

Review: It’s now time for our final match of the show and our main event as Utami Hayashishita takes on Maika. Despite the draw last show, Utami can still win the block and be locked in if she wins this match right here. The two fought before in JTO where Utami defeated her nearly a year ago but Maika is a different wrestler now and she looks to finally get even. Will the block be over before the final show or does Maika give Utami her first loss?

The match starts and we have the two locking up with some chain wrestling to show off their wrestling ability. Maika had a good head start with being able to toss Utami but would eventually be outwrestled by her. This is basically Utami telling her that she may have improved but is nowhere near her level when Utami tossed her around the ring and beating her down. Maika would eventually catch her in a Spinebuster and a couple if judo throws, telling her that she can surpass her and plans to do it here. I love how even it is between the two to give the match a nice balance in here and make either of them look strong in the match.

Utami attempts a Torture Rack but Maika fights her her off and kicks her by the ropes. Utami would do the same as they kick each other but Maika hits Utami with a Suplex and Utami kicked out. Maika picks her up as Utami turned her around to hit a beautiful German Suplex as the two go down. The two slowly get up as they go punch for punch now until Maika hits a Scoop Slam. Maika sits on the top rope and applies the Rear Naked Choke while lifting Utami, choking her put until she drops her and turns around to hit a Vader Bomb as Utami kicked out! Maika attempts to toss her down again as Utami turned it around to flip her over and applied the Rear Naked Choke on her now, Maika looks like she’s fading but Utamo lets go to hit the Kryptonite Krunch as Maika kicked out. Utami not wasting time as she hits the German Suplex Hold for another kickout but Utami would set her up for the High Angle Boston Crab and has it locked in, will she tap?! Maika was able to get to the ropes as Utami broke the hold. Utami calls for the finish as she sets Maika up for the Torture Rack Powerbomb but Maika fought it off and stalls her with a Brainbuster. After Utami kicked out, Maika quickly applied the Rear Naked Choke again and she has it locked in tight! Utami was struggling, trying to break free as the referee called for the bell, making Utami no longer undefeated!

Rating: Bruce Prichard


Overall: This was honestly the weakest show out of the bunch so far with only one enjoyable match with the other two being decent. Not all of them can be winners, I’m afraid. Still looking forward to the final show as we find out who advances.

Favorite Match: Utami Hayashishita vs. Maika

Least Favorite Match: Momo Watanabe vs. Saya Iida

Score: 6.5/10

It looks like the Blue Stars Block will be down to three people and they are Utami Hayashishita, Syuri, and Maika. Maika and Syuri will be double-booked on the show since they have two matches left, one of them being against each other. Let’s look below to see how either of them can advance.

  • Utami Hayashishita: Needs to defeat Syuri and Maika needs to lose one of her matches.

    Maika: Needs to win both her matches.

    Syuri: Needs to win both her matches.

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.
