EthanPWT Watches BJW 2010

Big Japan Pro Wrestling has become one of my latest crazes. That's led me to going back and watching some stuff from the past. I'm going through the year 2010 and watching whatever matches I can find. I'm not sure when I'll finish this, but I'm aiming for an update at least once a week. It's really up in the air though due to how hard it is to keep up with current stuff, much less watch past material. Plus, I'm behind on current BJW as it is so we'll see what happens. It's gonna be fun either way!

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yoshihito Sasaki vs. Yuji Okabayashi & Shinobu - 2/13/10
This was a pretty great way to kick this viewing off. You've got two men I'm familiar with in Sekimoto & Okabayashi and two that I'm extremely new to in Sasaki & Shinobu. With that in mind, I have to say right off the bat that Sasaki & Shinobu left a big impression on me during this match which was my first time seeing them. Their aggression and stiffness was unmatched here, even by two men vastly thicker than them in Sekimoto & Okabayashi. That's saying a lot considering they are two of my favorites and they had an awesome fighting spirit esque exchange here. Seeing Sasaki & Shinobu tear into each other early which built to them finally locking up again at the end and giving this match a hot finish was just fantastic. Good tag match.

Match rating - ***1/4

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yoshihito Sasaki vs. Abdullah Kobayashi & Takashi Sasaki - 3/19/10

Interesting match here. It's my first time seeing Kobayashi in a regular match and he honestly shocked me. He's fluent for his size and can definitely work a normal match which is something you'd not expect to do this well. He hit a bridging northern lights suplex here that left me with my jaw dropped. Y Sasaki was once again also a highlight here. He's like a fiery bulldog as he charged T Sasaki when he was on the apron out of nowhere and spawned a ringside brawl about a fourth of the way through the match. Sekimoto & Abdullah got the finishing sequence and it was great. Sekimoto triple suplexed both Sasaki's, including his partner, before nailing with Kobayashi with one, but he latched onto Sekimoto's arm and locked in a submission hold that the crowd popped for. Very nice false finish here with Sekimoto eventually getting the ropes. This exchange would be a great lead-in for the actual finish as a bridging german earned Sekimoto the victory for his team over Kobayashi.

Match rating - ***1/2

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yoshihito Sasaki vs. Kazuki Hashimoto & Takumi Tsukamato - 3/22/10
There's no commentary so this looks to simply be a live event. Y Sasaki was the same scrappy little dickhead that he's been so far in the year. If not more so, here. It came off like he was doing everything possible to clear the way for Sekimoto. Them Strong BJ boys work over Tsukamoto for the first portion. As said before, Sasaki keeps doing the dirty work by knocking Hashimoto off the apron repeatedly. Hashimoto finally gets the hot tag and comes in to try to turn things around. Things sort of breakdown for a few seconds as all four men are involved. Tsukamoto becomes the legal man with Sekimoto and gets caught in a torture rack which sets up for the frog splash. They give Tsukamoto a nice moment as he kicks out of the frog splash which generates some fire from the crowd. It's a temporary fire, though, because Sekimoto puts the nail in the coffin with a bridging german for the victory at 12:43. Decent house show effort.

Match rating - **1/2
