WRESTLE-1 - January 12th Korakuen Hall show (results)

Recommended Posts

A more newsworthy W-1 show than usual so I figured I'd make a topic about it.

 

Manabu Soya made his debut and is the new on-screen W-1 matchmaker (for the time being). Kazushi Miyamoto also made his debut and appears to be the new "gold and money" wrestler they had been advertising.

 

The results:

I'm choosing to believe that Rob Terry's still in japan because TNA either can't or won't pay to fly him back to the states.

That is odd that he has a random opening match and they don't have another show for a week.

 

I am mostly interested to see what WRESTLE-1 comes up with for their upcoming Sumo Hall show.  I don't think their "don't announce the line-ups in advance" thing will really work there and they better have something special planned or its going to be an embarrassment.

Is Masato Tanaka a full time roster member now?

No. He's still a Zero1 guy who also wrestles in other promotions.

Wow... I forgot Zero1 was even still in existence!

Kind of surprised to see Miyamoto pop up.

 

Knew Soya would join when he left AJPW. His reasoning felt like unclear bullshit.

Almost seems like they're just trying to deprive AJ of potential workers.

Miyamoto is surprisingly resilient for such a non-talent,

Masakatsu Funaki beat Yoshihiro Takayama (6:04) via TKO.

 

This sounds great no mater how short it is or how old, past their prime, unmotivated and lazy these 2 are now.

Zero1 just had a show in what looks like someone's single car garage for their ring crew.

They've been running this match on other shows over and over with the same finish and it hasn't been great. One of them's on DailyMotion or YouTube, I'm sure.

Link, please.

 

I admittedly haven't been paying attention to wrestling since 2005 so I'm out of the loop and just coming back full circle so forgive my ignorance.

I'd watch them go six minutes. What finish is the TKO again? Wasn't that Taiyo Kea's move?

They are MMA fighters, silly bean, it means he knocked him out.  Probably with a kick of some sort.

I posted one of them in the Matches folder, its from the event on 12/1. I think that's the only one that made tape.

This wasn't very good. Neither guy seemed to care and they were just going through the motions. Everything looked really weak even that knee that Takayama throws that's usually awesome.

The NOSAWA ring apron ref. distraction lasted forever and wasn't very good.

The finish was bad and the ring was really small.

Yesh, this didn't work at all.
