Muraco's Monday Morning Matches of the Week - [s2, e12]

NOAH: Naomichi Marufuji (c) vs. Minoru Suzuki - [3/15/15]
Shit yeah, buddy! Undoubtedly, one the best build-ups to any match so far this year. Finally, they collide. Minoru Suzuki's invasion of NOAH has culminated in a title match against longtime NOAH pillar and current World Champion Naomichi Marufuji. Can the champ fend off Suzuki Gun and protect the honor of Pro Wrestling NOAH, or will the sadistic Suzuki bring the World Title back home to SZKG?


{NOAH} GHC Heavyweight Championship: (c... by Mosquitopilate1

While we're at it, CLICK HERE for the playlist of the whole show, including the rest of Suzuki Gun going for all the other respective titles, and a fun curiosity match as Shelton Benjamin opposes ZERO1 Tag Team Champions "Dangan Yankees" Masato Tanaka & Takashi Sugiura.

WRESTLE-1: Keiji Muto (c) vs. KAI - [3/8/]
Gotta give Muto credit, from buying out WNC to fill out the undercard (a great move, as time has proven), to bringing in ZERO1 talent to strengthen the upper card (can never have too much ZERO1 on TV), to putting the title on the biggest star in the company -himself- and building it up as a cherished possession, the W-1 brand is worlds ahead of where it was when it started back in 2013. Hell, he even brought Bound For Glory to Kōrakuen Hall. Now we have our strongest contender to date, gunning for Muto's title; KAI, who you could look at like a Wade Barrett type, always in the uppercard with all the tools to be "the guy", but hasn't been given the keys to the mansion yet. Does Muto pass the torch, or will he continue his improbable 2015 world title reign?

BJW: Kazuki Hashimoto, Daisuke Sekimoto & Hideyoshi Kamitani vs. Yuji Okabayashi & Speed of Sounds - [3/10/15]
Big Japan is in the midst of its round-robin Deathmatch tournament, similar to the G1 Climax. Some of that shit has been insane. People rubbing barbed-wire, ladders and chairs is to be expected, but where they hook this customer is the creativity. Bloody wounds being doused in salt & lemon juice. It's entertainment, and it can be found at the best "Official" You Tube page of any wrestling promotion: Youtube.com/BJWmovie

However, even more entertaining for my tastes, we have Kazuki Hashimoto, Daisuke Sekimoto and Yuji Okabayashi, all in the same match. While this one doesn't go 20+ minutes of stiff strikes and unflappable manliness, they're still clearly speaking my language here. Plus, Kazuki & Sekimoto reunite as a tag team in the NOAH round-robin Tag Tourney next month, which should provide one or two pretty killer tag matches, if not more.


Daisuke Sekimoto, Kazuki Hashimoto & Hideyoshi... by JAHMAL1111

Next week is going to be a blast! KASSEN 2: ZERO1 vs. WRESTLE-1, a two day event.

    First off, what the fuck is wrong with you? How is bloody wounds being doused in anything considered entertainment?

    Secondly, people rubbing barbwire, ladders and chairs sounds like some kind of sick, boring fetish that I want no part of.

    I will say this: the backstage stories surrounding Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns have been immensely captivating as a smark, even if the physical build to their match on television has been the drizzling shits outside of Lesnar's 'fuck him up' promo and Heyman's goodness.

  11. He might actually have Hogan in his corner.

  12. 1992 was dripping with quality day in and day out.

  13. I've always had XIV as the most important WM. Besides launching Austin and The Rock, it has critical significance in the context of the Monday Night Wars. WCW had their chance to deliver a home run signature show with Starrcade just a few months prior and totally missed the boat. Then, WWF hits a grand slam with WM when it's their turn to respond. Even though there are many other WMs with better match quality, the booking of this show is just perfect and it's no coincidence Raw started beating Nitro again shortly thereafter.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 23, 2015 at 10:32 AM

    Hogan isn't capable of off-color humor like Zeb is. Colter IS Paulie.

  15. That's what I was leaning towards. I loved the PPVs and Clashes from there but never got a chance to see the Saturday Night episodes.

  16. They could if Reigns had any interaction with Lesnar where he got the upper hand, instead he got made to look like a mumbling putz next to one of the best Mic guys they have.

  17. When you say "looked like pure garbage", are you referring to the venues? I always loved the Hooiser Dome for WM8.

  20. There was one UFC match where someone lost to the Superman punch. They need to play that up, even if it means giving the competition the rub.

  25. Now that my Mania tickets are arriving this week, I actually am excited to go to Mania. Even if the card is shit, I'll have fun getting hammered and joining the crowd revolt.

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's probably the reason you're still interested - Raw is actively killing the interest in Mania. With every Raw, I've gotten progressively less engaged. I haven't even watched it in 3 weeks and I was a regular for years.

    This may come across as misogynistic, but it's more tied into perception really: while Jojo does fine for her role, I think wrestling announcers should be more stoic, more esteemed. Howard Finkel as the archetype works in this way: he may have looked like a nerd, but the dude's voice was booming and esteemed-sounding, and it made anything he was associated with sound more prestigious as a rule. Jojo is too... spunky, too perky to project that kind of quality. Lillian's problem is that she sucks, and Justin Roberts was more annoying than anything.

    Jojo needs to channel her inner-Mike McGuirk before she takes it to the next level.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I wonder if, every Friday, Cole announces, "THE WEEK...is over."

    ReplyDelete
  31. Apparently Roman filmed a segment for RAW tonight in Florida with his family. Yup, that'll get Roman over pushing his family down our throat.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I disagree. I think there was plenty of drama over who would get the first fall, because it was unlikely either would then be able to come back. The drama when Bret locks in the Sharpshooter at the end of regulation is incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Most def. I have no emotional attachment to WWE anymore, I don't watch the current product anymore except for NXT. But I have the Network, so I can just kick back and watch the show. If it is entertaining, I'll be happy.

    ReplyDelete
  34. "Rey Mysterio is reportedly receiving death threats over the death of Perro Aguayo, Jr. As previously reported, Mysterio was in the ring when Aguayo, Jr. died and was involved in the sequence which appears to have caused the injuries which killed him. The Wrestling Observer reports that Mysterio has been receiving the threats as a result.

    The site also notes that due to the in-ring accident, Mysterio was the single most-searched term on the Internet for Saturday."

    ReplyDelete
  35. If "filmed a segment for RAW tonight in Florida with his family" isn't immediately proceeded by "getting destroyed by Brock Lesnar with multiple F5s in the family pool", then it's the worst use of resources this week.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Gravitas.

    THIS IS CNN.


    Rather than, "Hey everybody, it's CNN time!"

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yeah I mean that was too much but at least it didn't sound like a weekend sale at a used car lot but selling wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think my official prediction for Sunday is Reigns over Lesnar, and Rollins over Reigns for the title.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The only way that segment turns out good is if Brock just murders Romans entire family.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fucksake, it was the bump that Fucked him up not the 619 hitting him. You might as well threaten the canvas or the ropes, it was a one in a million accident.

    ReplyDelete
  41. God no, that would give it credibility.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would like it if Roman takes everything Brock has and just keeps fighting and Brock does the same. A small slip up costs Roman the match. Afterwards do a handshake respect thing but have Rollins interrupt it and cash in on Brock winning the title.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMarch 23, 2015 at 10:47 AM

    Those are some of the best heel turns, IMO. Hogan and Bret always did show some heelish tendencies and sore-loser attitude. So when they turned, it kind of made sense looking back. I think that's the fundamental problem with a Cena heel turn now. He has always been able to win without cheating and kayfabe-wise he has always been a legit nice guy (at least after his initial heel mid-card run)

    ReplyDelete
  44. *farts in DBSM's vicinity right as he breathes in"

    ReplyDelete
  45. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 23, 2015 at 10:48 AM

    I legitimately feel bad for the guy. It's not like he was reckless in the ring; it was just a freak accident that led to a tragedy. As many hoops as the guy had to go through to even get back in the ring, he must feel Godawful today.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Would you be more excited if Reigns pissed Brock off and Brock demands their match be tonight. So Brock beats Reigns and Raw goes off the air with Cole and Co screaming about what is the main event for Wrestlemania going to be now ?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMarch 23, 2015 at 10:50 AM

    Leverage is needed too. WWE has none.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Remember, the reason the Rock go to so over was because they kept shoving down Peter Maivia and Rocky Johnson down our throat!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 23, 2015 at 10:50 AM

    It would be a definite shock to the system, and anything to shake / spice things up would be interesting. Though at the end of the day, it comes down to a simple fact: I don't want, nor need, to see Roman Reigns as champion. Any end game that prevents this would be 'best for business'.

    ReplyDelete
  50. That's fucked up.

    ReplyDelete
  51. It needs to end like the scene in Rocky 3 where Mr. T asks Adrian if she wants to go home with a real man, with Brock being Mr. T.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 23, 2015 at 10:51 AM

    That's the word I was looking for, gravitas.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I should add....as Brock paints himself in Roman's blood.

    ReplyDelete
  54. HEY WOMAN
    HEY WOMAN

    ReplyDelete
  55. Agreed. It really wasn't Rey's fault, from all reports. It was simply a case of Aguayo taking one bad bump (or one bump too many, depending on your perspective).


    Strangely, I also kind of feel bad for WWE in this, since CNN's headline is "Mexican Wrestler Killed In Ring With WWE Star." Nothing about "former WWE" star. They make it sound like this happened in a WWE ring. A lot of other sites have similarly sensationalist, clickbaity titles.


    But then, I guess that's the problem with having a monopoly. Your company name becomes a byword for wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 23, 2015 at 10:52 AM

    I must stress again the cardinal rule here: don't draft a Hurricane.

    ReplyDelete
  57. No, they'll need that for Cena/Rusev, with Lana playing Adrian and Cena being Mr. T.

    ReplyDelete
  58. That's what would happen if Angle dropped dead in the ring or Jeff Hardy died of an overdose. It would be "WWE WRESTLER DIES", not TNA. They'd be lucky to get "former." Hell, Kurt Angle would be lucky to get "OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST" in there.

    ReplyDelete
  59. A Bella and Lana at the same time?! Dare Cena live out the American dream?!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wrestlemania 17 is still the GOAT Wrestlemania.

    ReplyDelete
  61. That would be a cool shake things up, holy shit moment you don't get on RAW anymore. Maybe Roman sleeps with Sable and that's what pisses Brock off so much.

    ReplyDelete
  62. He might as well enter to "Living in America".

    ReplyDelete
  63. Maybe that's what Roman has been implying all this time by cocking his fist

    ReplyDelete
  64. "uh, uh, I'M GONNA SUFFERING SUCCOTASH"

    ReplyDelete
  65. Biff Kensington Has a PosseMarch 23, 2015 at 10:59 AM

    I know that this is wholly dependent on Creative not fucking the guy up like they did Cesaro last year, but having Adrian Neville win the NXT Tournament on Thursday and winning the Andre battle royal at WrestleMania would be a kickass way to launch the guy's main roster career, especially if he gets to pull off something memorable against someone like Big Show (which would provide a neat meta-plot moving forward about Big Show not being able to win the battle royal). Finn Balor is my guy in NXT, and I think he's got the most potential at the main level, but Adrian needs to go up far more than Balor does, so he's my pick.

    ReplyDelete
  66. So evidently HHH's entrance will be promoting the new Terminator movie...so the Wrestlecrap count for this show is already at 1.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hmm, I would like it for the shock factor, but it would be really hard for them to change a WrestleMania main event six days ahead.

  99. Watched the NXT from the Arnold Classic.

    People were talking about Alexa Bliss being boo-urnsed. Only real booing I heard from when the match ended, and I think that was due in part to the fact that it was a count-out, which is lame way to win in general.

  144. Hey guys, it's Wrestlemania week!


    But seriously, I have zero interest in the outcomes this Sunday, I'm mostly interested in the crowd reactions. I genuinely couldn't give a fuck about Wrestlemania. Ah well.

  145. Nice try, Hunter. Get at me when you base an entrance around McBain.

    'All Shawn's said was Patterson wanted to see them have an Iron Man match, they didn't do falls because it was felt they were the two best in the world and shouldn't be losing multiple falls to each other ''

    ...but that's what an Iron Man match *is*, Bret.

    I think the match is a huge waste of storytelling by two men who could have farted out a better match in their sleeps.

  147. Where's the challenge in that!

    "Something's happened, can't give you any details, can you find out?"
    "OF COURSE I CAN"

  150. haha, I was scrolling through Terminator quotes trying to find SOMETHING to adapt to HHH and couldn't come up with a darn thing

    ReplyDelete
  151. HA! Nerds.

    ...I'm planning a trip to London to see the Magna Carta this year.

  152. Is it just me, or does it really not feel like the week leading up to Wrestlemania?

  154. From Bayless' review of said timeline: "He is then asked about the debut of the Cubans, Ricky Santana & Dave Sierra with manager Bill Alphonso, and how they were gone after a few matches. Waltman said that he did not want to discuss what happened then Oliver tries to probe but Waltman did not discuss any more of the situation."

  155. And now I need to go to this channel.

  156. I just watched that last night.

  157. WCW trotting out Michael Buffer for PPV and Nitro main events really made the matches feel special. Of course, they usually were pretty awful with a screwy finish. But it was a great touch.

    ReplyDelete
  158. It doesn't feel like the big show is coming. Usually even a few non-fans I know will ask about Mania coming up.

    It's really really well done, if you've read a lot on WW1 you're not going to learn anything new, but having all the old news clippings and stuff set up in such an easy to find weekly update kind of way, it's really fun and the week-to-week postings kind of gives the feel of what it must have been like to live through it

  160. Took the spot, of a man named Daniel Bryan
    The guy looks like a goat

    ReplyDelete
  161. Still feels like christmas, birthday, and Wrestlemania all rolled into one for me! #manchesterunited #33seconds #lolololololol

    ReplyDelete
  162. Will this Wrestlemania be the one with the most special entrances? They have HHH with apparently some sort of Terminator entrance, Sting with scarecrows, Rusev with Russian soldiers, meaning Cena will probably get a special entrance, I'm sure the Undertaker will get something different, so possibly Bray too, and it's pretty likely that Reigns will get something special too.

  164. This is very intriguing. For no one to talk about these guys...that's something.

    Even they know the show will be shit, hence hanging every possible bell and whistle on the production as possible

    ReplyDelete
  166. Wrestlemania 31
    Four Hours Long, 1/4 Entrances

    ReplyDelete
  167. Alright, alright. Enough of that! (Actually, 2-1 is quite respectable considering United's first half performance, Gerrard sent off, penalty and Martin Atkinson.)

    ReplyDelete
  168. It'll be the best Six Flags stunt show ever!

    ReplyDelete
  169. That IC Title Ladder match is going to be less than 10 minutes.

  171. Doesn't feel like I've seen much press about it.

  172. EIGHTEEN SECONDS clap clap clapclapclap

  173. They keep it up with the shitty booking, and people will talk of seeing Wrestlemania in the days of yore like they talk about seeing the Blue Angels now.


    I make no apologies for my hyperbole.

    ReplyDelete
  174. I like to think that HHH in 2002 was like the T-1000 to that dude with the motorcycle. "Say, that's a NICE bike..."

    ReplyDelete
  175. As does Kirk Cameron ..

    ReplyDelete
  176. Fellow UK residents, have there been fewer adverts on Sky Sports for Mania this year? It feels like it to me. Has the Network launch made them less inclined to promote the product?

    ReplyDelete
  177. So the more they trump family, the more I'm thinking usos help reigns win....ANYTHING other than smiling reigns and I might watch next week

    ReplyDelete
  178. I did see some adverts for it during... something I watched on Sky Sports yesterday. £19.95! Dearie me.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Stevie Richards is now a 2-time Rumble winner!

    ReplyDelete
  180. That's like a minute for each participant.

    ReplyDelete
  181. So apparently The Ascension are now doing clean jobs to the New Day. I don't really give a shit about The Ascension, but why bother calling them up?

    ReplyDelete
  182. It'll be re-booked as a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  183. Wrestlemania 31 -- the one where Roman Reigns finally achieves his hard-worked 9-month dream of being WWE Heavyweight Champion.


    He had to fight from the bottom, but he's finally made it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  184. £20? Fuck. I'll *find* it next Monday.

    For me there is a blazing white nuclear fireball on the horizon called Opening Day, while I assume somewhere in my field of vision there is a Wrestlemania it is blotted out completely with the bright allure of baseball

  186. All this Wrestlemania intro needed was some smooth saxophone.

  187. Because they were in developmental for 15 years.

    ReplyDelete
  188. You not on the network?

    ReplyDelete
  189. The ladder match will be choreographed to be a part of Cena's entrance.

    ReplyDelete
  190. *Hands Hunter a stack of Usos shirts he got off some disgruntled cosplayers.*

    ReplyDelete
  191. Because they weren't improving any more in nXT and they figures they could get something out of the time/money spent on them by bringing them up.

    ReplyDelete
  192. his approach to wrestling worked very well at this time since the fans were tired of the over the top good guy

    ReplyDelete
  193. Anyone else's WWE App just send them a push notification that Kevin Nash is going to be inducted into the HoF?

    ReplyDelete
  194. If HHH is the Terminator, does that make Vince Sarah Connor and Miles Dyson Danial Bryan?
