AJPW Flashing Tour 2012 Funaki vs Suwama; Tumeric Storm vs Kondo/Kaz
AJPW Flashing Tour 2012 - 9/23/2012 - Triple Crown - Masakatsu Funaki vs Suwama Review
Masakatsu Funaki beat SUWAMA with Hybrid Blaster. I loved the second half of this but hated the first part of it. They built up the first half of this with Suwama working over Funaki's leg. He did this for about 5-7 minutes but unfortunately they forgot all about it in the second half. They didn't even bring it up. The second half was good with it being mostly a strike fest. They slapped the crap out of each other and I really enjoyed it. I wish they would have just went to this instead of giving us extended meaningless matwork, but hey this is Japan. This would have been rated higher with the second half only but because of the first half the rating is: ***.
Shuji Kondo and Kaz Hayashi vs Tumeric Storm - Tomoaki Honma and Kazushi Miyamoto
Kazushi Miyamoto takes off the turnbuckle
Tomoaki Honma beat Kaz Hayashi with a top rope headbutt. This was a pretty good match. Tumeric Storm are good heels and Kaz/Kondo are a great team. Good work by both teams and I love how quick the faces were. Good to see Tumeric Storm back and I'm looking forward to see what happens next. Rating:**3/4
