NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

Pre-Show Rambo2/5 – The usual/usual far worse version of the Royal Rumble silliness, but some cool surprises, including Stronghearts’ CIMA and the legend Tatsumi Fujinami.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

Sho vs. Yoh2.5-2.75/5 – This feud only gets 12-minutes? What is this, WWE? 😃

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Ryusuke Taguchi, & Rocky Romero vs. Bullet Club (Kenta, El Phantasmo, Taiji Ishimori) – 2.25/5 – On paper, this looks like an excellent 6-man tag. It was just OK. And I wish Rocky was back in the color commentating booth, because he works so well with Chris and Kevin. Oh, and this ended in a DQ… wut?

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

United Empire (Will Ospreay, Jeff Cobb, Great O’Khan) vs. L-I-J (Tetsuya Naito, Bushi, Sanada) – 2.5/5 – Another great match on paper than just wound up.. NOTHING. So much talent wasted. With 2 nights of WK, why do we need so many damn 6-man tags?

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

Shibata vs. Ren Narita – 3.5/5 – SHIBATA IS IN MY RING!!! WRESTLINGGGGG. The Road to Daniel Bryan at a future G1 starts now.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

NEVER Heavyweight Championship: Evil vs. Ishii – 1/5 – Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Evil – mostly bc of Geto’s match layout with all the Dick Togo garbage — is, at this point in his career, nearly unwatchable. I hope to “never” see another match like this again, but I probably will. Just a pitiful waste of Ishii.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship: Dangerous Tekkers (Zack Sabre Jr. & Taichi) vs. CHAOS (Yoshi-Hashi & Goto) – 3-3.25/5 – Solid match, but I’ve been over Yoshi-Hashi and Goto for a long, long time now. Like—3 years? They won, so meh.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

IWGP Juniorheavyweight Championship: Hiromu Takashi vs. Desperado3.75/5 – Without the crowd oooohing and ahhhing the usual wildness of Hiromu, there’s no way this had a chance to be a classic, but both Juniors work wonderfully together and had themselves a dandy. I mean—when was the last time it took this long to get a **** match or higher on a Wrestle Kingdom? This one comes oh-so-close.

NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 16 [Night 1 Review]: Return of The Wrestler.

IWGP Heavyweight Championship: Shingo Takagi vs. Kazuchika Okada4.5/5 – Love the Inoki gear on Okada… gotta win that crowd back that has actually semi-soured on him the last couple of years (as great as The Rainmaker has still been). This one had all the goods, and more. Def closer to a 5-Highball Whiskey Classic if the crowd were allowed to be.. a crowd. Funny, but in the last 5-minutes, the heavily Covid-restricted audience went nuts and couldn’t refrain from the excitement. If that doesn’t show you how great these two studs are, I don’t know what will.

Night 1 Overall = 2.75/5 Whiskeys.

Sadly, one of the worst nights in the 16-year history of Wrestle Kingdom, but not without its bright moments. The main evento def lived up to the hype – maybe a couple more creative/memorable spots away from being a classic – and I really enjoyed Takahashi/Desperado; but, I’m bittersweet about the finish, seeing how Hiromu was the one and only highlight in the BotSJ last month. And Shibata! I feel so bad for Shibata. One of the greatest technical/strong style in-ring beasts made a miraculous 5-year comeback and faced a Young Lion in a glorified Young Lion’s match. But The Wrestler wrestled. While his long-anticipated return definitely flew under the radar, maybe let’s just be happy that it even happened. And let’s all hope that Night 2 lifts up what felt like a super “Road To” show to an actual event worthy of the name Wrestle.. Kingdom.

P.S. There’s no “Entertainment” rating with this review since New Japan isn’t even allowing the crowd to cheer or boo, and they don’t really do promos/angles on their big New Japan World shows.

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

Buy-In Pre-Show Match: Thunder Rosa/Hikaru Shida vs. Nyla Rose/Jamie Hayter – Nice warm up match; sloppy here and there, but a fine, happy beginning to the night with Shida getting the fall. Thunder Rosa needs a push. – 3/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

Darby Allin vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman – This had to be both Allin and MJF’s best match in AEW, if not ever. MJF looked downright great, like a Rick Martel type in the ring and a Ric Flair type outside of it, while Darby is a King Salesman. They also had the benefit of having the first match in front of a super hot crowd. (Yes, it appeared like Darby’s right shoulder was resting up on MJF during on the headlock takeover pin at the end, but maybe they can work that into a story this week on Dynamite?). I fucking loved it. – 4.5/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

AEW Tag Team Championships: Lucha Bros vs. FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) – This was def better than their first match and had loads of great spots; the two teams def gelled more this time out. The ode to Eddie with the big Frogsplash from Fenix was great (the 2nd of 3 performed on the show), while Penta’s “3 Amigos” left a lot to be desired… There were a lot of false finishes. Another minor complaint: I would’ve cut the 18 minutes down to about 15 to shave down the gaga that ensued before the finish, but still a terrific, high octane match, and I can’t wait to see the rubber bout. – 4/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

World Title #1 Contenders Eliminator Tournament Finals: Miro vs. Bryan Danielson – As great as this match was, I expected even better. While it never blew me away, Bryan might just be the BitW right now — at least in America — and Miro hung in there, aptly. I do like the story of Miro coming into the match pretty banged up with the leg (although this seems like a real injury) and the “neck of sand” that eventually led to an awesome tornado DDT to guillotine finish from the American Dragon. But, just me or did Bryan sort of kick the shit out of [literally] this nearly unstoppable force for most of the match? – 4/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

Falls Count Anywhere: Superkliq (Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, Adam Cole) vs. Christian Cage/Jurassic Express – Bonkers match, but if you dislike the Bucks and “Spotmonkey” madness, especially with a surplus of wild tables/ladder/chairs moments all over the arena, then you will obviously, absolutely despise this. Not as great as many of the gazillion 6-man tags I’ve watched the Bucks participate in; but still pretty exciting and full of fun, again, if you accept this kind of thing. – 3.75-4/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

Malakai Black/Andrade El Idolo vs. Cody Rhodes/Pac – If any match (besides the “Buy-In”) deserved to be cut from the card, it was this one. With four top-notch talents, the tag still wound up fairly solid, as Andrade was especially awesome and the fans are just loving Black in AEW. Pac is a workhorse and got the pin, and the Cody “refuse to heel” stuff is silly. It’s hard to keep these names off Full Gear, but at 17-minutes (time that could’ve been better spent elsewhere– Punk/Kingston and main event), I rather would’ve waited a week and watched this on Rampage. – 3.25/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

Women’s Title: Britt Baker vs. Tay Conti – Soooooo happy this didn’t wind up in the death spot. AEW is learning, giving the women their own moment to shine and not being the “bathroom break” before the main event. Bravo. Tay Conti stepped up, too. Of course Britt Baker is arguably the most improved wrestler in the past year to past year and a half; watching Conti keep up with her and often push the pace was fun. While she’s definitely not there yet, and the match lacked a lot of heat, it was a more than solid effort in a night of stacked matches. – 3.5/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

CM Punk vs. Eddie Kingston – 11-minutes!? That’s it?! Ah, this was so damned awesome. Say what you want about AEW’s indie-rific tendencies, but Full Gear was full of match variety. If you wanted a fight here, you got one. Eddie started the match with his signature backfist, Punk hit a slew of top rope clotheslines and elbows, and the heat was heavy. Kingston gave Punk his best match in AEW. And other than the main event, this def got the loudest reactions of the night. Just a shame it was 11-minutes. Eleven minutes. I wanted 60. – 4.25-4.5/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

American Top Team/Men of the Year vs. Inner Circle – Jericho was the G.O.A.T. until that “fat-faced dipshit” Dan Lambert entered town! Lamb’s just the greatest! Still, this was another match that would’ve been better served on a special edition of Dynamite than on the PPV, and it felt mega long. But seeing that 3 of the 10 men involved were not professional wrestlers, it could’ve been a lot worse. And the Inner Circle rules. Maybe Jake Hager’s most impressive performance in AEW this side of his MMA match with Wardlow, and Sammy is just the best. So many guys in AEW seem to outperform their days from the indies (Darby, MJF) and Sammy is no different; the guy has just really blossomed into a full-fledged star. Arlovski had no business being there, looking greener than NFL turf, while Junior Dos Santos nearly pulled a “Bad Bunny”. He was fun to watch. Oh, and my buddy Dave (not Meltzer) hated all the wacky weapons and especally that Ethan page/Baron claw spot. Giggles. – 3.25/5

AEW FULL GEAR 2021 [Review]: Cowboy Clean-Up.

AEW World Title: Kenny Omega vs. Hangman Page – There was absolutely no way Page was going to lose this match, nor should he have. So the beat here is how he gets there. And how he got there couldn’t have gone better. You knew The Elite was going to get involved, especially Callis and the Bucks, and how they got involved was brilliant. Don aggravated Page just enough to be a distraction, without ruining the match. But it was the Bucks interference, or shocking lack thereof, that was the chief subplot in this grandiose narrative’s most climactic touch. There were a gazillion awesome moves, dives and the like, and I’ll save you the play-by-play, yet my fav spot of the match was Hangman hitting Bandido’s incredible super fall-away slam from the top. Page would eventually hit Omega with a buckshot lariat after both Nick and Matt “allowed” him to. The saga continues… – 4.5/5

Matches = 4/5
Entertainment = 4/5

Overall = 4/5 Bottles of Jack.

Whereas All Out 2021 was all about the big shocks and surprises, tonight was all about the wrestling. Unironically, that notion is symbolized by their signing and introduction of Ring of Honor legend Jay Lethal. Other than a pair of matches that attempted to capture the more “entertainment” side of professional wrestling — 5v5, Cody tag — this was a memorable night of flat-out awesome pro wrestling. Just banger after banger after banger. This roster might be stacked to a fault, although it’s a crazy ass feat that this many men and women can get over in the same company. If TK ever decided to add another PPV or two, and can take these 10-match shows down to 7 or 8, the wrestling world is in trouble. Cowboy.. out.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

Buy-In – 10-Man Tag Team Match: Best Friends & Jurassic Express vs. Hardy Family Office3/5 – Just a fairly fun opener to get guys on the card and the crowd ready. Some solid double team moves and a happy way to start the show.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

TNT Championship: Miro (Champion) vs. Eddie Kingtson3.5-3.75/5 – You knew it’d be good, but you didn’t know it’d be THIS good. Hard hitting brawl with many high impact moves. Maybe the most impressive work I’ve seen from Eddie in AEW yet. With the ref kinda causing Kingston the W, let’s get that rematch in dude’s own backyard at Arthur Ashe.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

Jon Moxley vs. Satoshi Kojima3.75/5 – You can wear other company’s attire/brands/logos in AEW… Mox with the GCW hoodie solidified that notion. This was also def a New Japan strong styled match.. Kojima def lived up to the daring challenge, and Mox kept things more subtle with the selling than usual. This one just felt like a FIGHT. While it sorta ended on an anticlimactic note, it was fine to only go 11 with this many matches on the card. Also.. SUZUKI showed up, beat the hell out of Moxley, and nailed him with a Gotch!

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

AEW Women’s World Championship: Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. (Champion) w/ Rebel and Jamie Hayter vs. Kris Statlander w/ Orange Cassidy3.75/5 – Maybe it’s because I haven’t watched an excellent big time woman’s match in a while (with apologies to Japan; I just have completely fallen off that spectrum), but I loved loved this match and all the drama. The finish was killer.. with some great transitions from Britt. Kris is a legimate contender, but it’s just not her time. Is there a more complete female wrestler — with character work, wrestling style, star power, etc. — in the game right now than Britt?

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

Steel Cage Match – AEW World Tag Team Championship: The Young Bucks (Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson) (Champions) vs. The Lucha Brothers (Rey Fenix and Penta El Zero M)4.75-5/5 – Instant Cage Match Classic. If you’re not a Jim Cornette worshiper, then you likely will agree. Many are now considering this one of, if not THE, most impressive Cage match to date. That’s wild but acceptable if you enjoy spots and “spam finishers”. It’s a style that’s only really polarizing from the loud minority on the interwebs, but whatever. Shit was 🔥🔥🔥

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

Women’s Casino Battle Royale
Nyla Rose vs. Thunder Rosa vs. The Bunny vs. Big Swole vs. Tay Conti vs. Diamante vs. Penelope Ford vs. Red Velvet vs. Hikaru Shida vs. Emi Sakura vs. Jade Cargill vs. Kiera Hogan vs. Abadon vs. Leyla Hirsch vs. KiLynn King vs. Rebel vs. Jamie Hayter vs. Anna Jay vs. Riho vs. Skye Blue
3/5 – My biggest complaint about AEW PPV’s is match placement and, man, this was, to me, the best match placement in Tony Khan’s booking career. Every peak moment of All Out had a breather and this was that breather. Sort of. Enter Ruby Soho! And boy did the former Ruby Riott not disappoint. Hell, she won and also held her own against arguably one of the world’s best in Thunder Rosa. Can’t wait for all the possible match-ups in this division. With the return of Anna Jay and Riho (who got screwed by getting tossed out under the ropes?), this division just FEELS like it’s thriving.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

The Final Fight: MJF vs. Chris Jericho3.25-3.5/5 – Despite a “final” grudge matche with two of the biggest stars — and absolute mic-men — in AEW, this one took a while to get the crowd back after all the awesomeness of All Out’s first half. That said, the controversial “finish” led to some major crowd heat and I’m a huge fan when interference doesn’t lead DIRECTLY to the finish (see main event). Their stables didn’t play a huge part, and Jericho won the way he lost the last time to MJF. And, man, MJF is soooo much better a wrestler than he was in the indies. So much for needing a performance center.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

CM Punk vs. Darby Allin3.75-4/5 – How Punk Got His Groove Back. That’s what this was all about– getting CM Punk (who appeared in peak physical condition for his age; he looks great!) back to Punk after 7 years off, and, of course, shooting Allin to the moon. The finish was absolutely killer too. You really couldn’t ask for anything more from this!

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

Paul Wight vs. QT Marshall w/ The Factory10/5 aka jk aka it doesn’t matter aka 2/5 – QT is the best heel in the industry lol … this was a much needed breather bet Punk & The title match.

AEW ALL OUT 2021 [Review]: Yes, Bay-Bay.

AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega (Champion) w/ Don Callis vs. Christian Cage4/5 (if you include EVERYTHING!) – As far as the match, this was a close to a very good match as you can get.. def 3.5-3.75 minimum, but you’d never know it with how quiet the crowd was for much of it, waiting on their heels in anticipation for their American Dragon to arrive. Little did they know that it would become time for ALL ELITE BAY-BAY as well, and, thus, a strong Championship match wound up no more than just an afterthought. Shame, bc Kenny and Christian worked a terrific match.. and Christian took a Super One-Winged Angel for the loss following a teased Super Killswitch. There were a couple great table spots for good measure too… but, MAN… it was all about the shocking Adam Cole debut in AEW (joining the Elite) and the double surprise of Bryan Danielson.

You really couldn’t book it any better. It was a magical finish to a damn awesome, awesome show.

Matches = 3.5-3.75/5
Entertainment = 5.5/5

Overall = 4.5/5

While most of the matches ranged from “good” to “very good”, this All Out was ALL about storytelling, shockers, and overall consistent quality (sans a silly, albeit entertaining women’s battle royal and a quick Big Show squash), that led to AEW’s arguable best show to date. No, this wasn’t a great show in terms of pure match ratings; I’ve reviewed far better shows in-ring from NJPW (G1, Dome), PWG (BOLA, ASW) and especially NXT (most TakeOvers). But, none of them had the strong alternative “changing of the guard” feeling that this one had. Not even close. Between the wide open Forbidden Door, seriously strong title matches and title pictures, ultra surprises and insane crowd reactions, it finally feels like All Elite Wrestling is a legitimate contender.. no.. fuck that.. THREAT to McMahon’s empire/Universe.

And if only a mere blip on Vinny Mac’s radar, at least this AEW is fun AF to watch.

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

@TravMoody

Good news for action figure fans who adore their action inside the squared circle, too. Jazwares’ AEW toyline is a hot one, and company head Jeremy Padawer didn’t shy away from using AEW All Out weekend to stream a slew of wrasslin’ reveals yesterday, dubbed Jazwares Fan Fest 2021. You can watch the video just below, and even lower, your boy T-Moody shares insight — and Whiskey scores! — on everything shown at the digital “Fan Fest.” Ding, ding, ding!


Unmatched Series 3 – LJN Darby Allin, Brodie Lee, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Anna Jay, and John Silver.

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

LJN Darby! It isn’t for me, but happy for those who love their LJN; I was always a Hasbro WWF collector… The Brodie Lee is stunning. I do wish it would include his “Exalted One” entrance coat, but we’ll see. Evil Uno and Stu Grayson (the former Super Smash Bros) look great; Anna Jay render is sexy, akin to her bestie Tay Conti’s toy; and John Silver‘s alternate head is perfect, while the regular one looks like a castoff from Far Cry 5

Reveal = 4/5 Whiskeys


Unmatched Series 4 – Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Jade Cargill, Chris Jericho, MJF, and Hangman Page

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

Good luck finding any CM Punk figure for under $100 ever! Maybe far higher as far as scalpers are concerned! Imagine a Chase? $10K? Hell, even those Punk t-shirts with the ringers are going for big bucks. The Mexico Jericho is a fun, surprising look… and Biz Suit Cody is just another option for fans who can’t find one. Like my guy Robo says, you can “pass it along” if the toy doesn’t tickle your fancy… Jade has had only 11 matches (and it seems like 3), so getting a figure already is somewhat startling, but somewhat not since she already has the look of a tremendous toy! Also, please fix Hangman face, Jeremy! (Although I already kinda know the answer to that one… sad face emoji​)

Reveal = 3/5 Whiskeys


Bloody Britt Baker headsculpt Ringside exclusive

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

“This is awesome! This is awesome!” Just a shame that it took a head full of blood to get us a real solid Britt sculpt. She’s far and away my fav female wrestler in AEW (maybe only 3rd or 4th to Io, Asuka and Becky overall), so here’s to hoping we can get the same face for the D.M.D. sans blood…

Reveal = 4.5/5 Whiskeys


Unrivaled Series 8 – Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor, Trent, Kris Statlander, Jericho, and Moxley

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

The Statlander pre-render appears to continue (mostly) strong female figures in the line, while Trent‘s is spot-on, but O.C. continues to have a poor sculpt (despite wonderful gear). And WTF is that look on Chuck? If anyone needed 2 sculpts it was his figure. The Painkiller Jericho head sculpt continues to be a one note look, but the wardrobes in the past few have been absolutely killer. Yeah, baby!

Reveal = 3.5/5 Whiskeys

Unrivaled Series 9 – Thunder Rosa, Eddie Kingston, Christian Cage, Powerhouse Hobbs, Ricky Starks, and Brian Cage

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

What can one say about the announcement, other than “awesome” and “hope they’re good!”?!? I’ll def buy Rosa, Eddie, and both Cage’s if done correctly. That’s a big “if”…

Reveal = 4/5 Whiskeys


Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match Kenny Omega & Jon Moxley Ringside exclusives

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

Oh, these head sculpts… I’m not sure what’s happening with Jazwares, except that one can only assume they are happy with the sales of their AEW figs and pay little (to no) mind to the fan comments. Go look at these reveals on Instagram, Twitter; there are similar concerns about the face scans. Is Hasbro’s superior “photo real” technology (seen on their recent Star Wars and Marvel Legends figs) a costly one? That’s my guess, and it’s pretty sad that Jaz won’t adopt the technology despite the sales. These Moxley and Omega faces are horrendous.

Reveal = 1/5 Whiskeys


Wrestling Buddies Sting (Walmart Exclusive)

JAZWARES FAN FEST 2021 [News]: AEW All Out Action Figure Reveals!

YES! YES! YES! Only thing better than this would be a Bryan Danielson Wrestling Buddy… OK, a CM Punk Wrestling Buddy… But, seeing how I had the O.G. California Surfer Sting Buddy as a wee wittle moody… it’s gonna be hard to resist battling the Walmart scalptrain for this one.

Reveal = 4.5/5 Whiskeys
