AJPW 11/30/2012 - Selected Matches

AJPW 11/30/2012 - Keiji Mutoh, KENSO and Masanobu Fuchi vs Chris the Bambi Killer, Franz Dynamite and MAZADA

Keiji Mutoh beat MAZADA with a shining wizard in 10:55. This wasn't a serious one and really was just a comedy match. The early part of the match was all about Fuchi sneaking in illegal punches and body slamming people. The heels cheated and KENSO pretty much took things home for Mutoh to hit the clean up after. Nothing worthwhile here at all.

Kohei Suwama and Joe Doering vs Daisuke Sekimoto and Yuji Okabayashi
Suwama and Joe Doering got the win with double powerbombs. It was a decent match, but it was all Sekimoto/Okabayashi and the AJPW duo of Suwama and Doering really didn't bring much to the table at all. Sekimoto and Oka looked to be in a completely different league the wrong team won here. I'd really like to see these two teams have a nice long match on a big show somewhere as they might be able to do something really good. Rating:**3/4

Andy Wu and Hiroshi Yamato vs Kaz Hayashi and Shuji Kondo
I've never seen Andy Wu, so I figured I'd give this a go. Yamato is a AJPW junior, Hayashi is a former WCW and Michinoku Pro wrestler and Shuji Kondo has been everyone's favorite wrestler at some point in their lives.

540 kick!
The finish
Shuji Kondo got the win in 5 minutes with a King Kong Lariat. Fun, high-speed DG style match here. Andy Wu looked great, Hiroshi Yamato looked like he could take Masato Yoshino for speed and all in all it was a ton of fun. Very enjoyable and I'd love to see more! Rating:***
