NJPW Best Of The Super Juniors May 18 & 20 Results And Reaction

Hello friends, who’s ready for a double dose of Best of the Super Juniors? The first show comes to us from Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.

Taichi vs. Taka Michinoku
Winner
: Taichi at 9:30. Taichi rolled up Taka after a low blow and faking a knee injury.

Dragon Lee vs. Marty Scurll
Winner
: Dragon Lee at 13:09. Lee hits the double stomp from the tree of woe position.

Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Hiromu Takahashi
Winner
: Takahashi at 8:05. Takahashi wins with a Time Bomb.

Ricochet vs. Will Ospreay
Winner
: Will Ospreay at 27:27. Ospreay wins with the OsCutter. If you like their types of matches you’ll probably love this one too. Personally, I find them entertaining and I do subscribe to Ricochet’s, “Wrestling is an art form” line of thinking. But I do prefer more traditional wrestling matches. That being said, there were some really jaw dropping moments in this match, lots of those dives I keep hearing about. However, the match didn’t take place in a haunted house so, how good could it REALLY be?

Let’s check out the next event shall we? This show comes to us from the Silver Arena in Mie.

Volador Jr. vs. Ryusuke Taguchi
Winner
: Taguchi at 9:58. Taguchi wins with the Dodon.

Bushi vs. El Desperado
Winner
: El Desperado at 9:47. During the match Desperado had loosened Bushi’s mask and as Bushi went for the MX, Desperado shoved the ref, Bushi jumped over the ref, Desperado hits a low blow then pulls the mask off and rolls up Bushi. Interesting finish in the battle of the masked men. After the match Desperado took Bushi’s mask and shined his shoes with it. Poor Bushi, I hope someone unmasks Desperado.

Kushida vs. Tiger Mask
Winner
: Tiger Mask at 10:41. Tiger Mask wins with a Tiger Suplex. Potential ROH spoiler ahead! Is it just me or does it seem like a bad idea for ROH to put the TV title on Kushida who’s going through a losing streak storyline in New Japan? Maybe it’s just me but it makes the belt look bad. And he has been coming out with the belt for his BOSJ matches.

Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs. ACH
Winner
: Kanemaru at 10:26. Kanemaru hits the Deep Impact, a diving DDT from the top rope for the win.
