Big Mouth LOUD 9/11/2005 - Katsuyori Shibata vs Kazunari Murakami

Big Mouth LOUD 9/11/2005 - Katsuyori Shibata vs Kazunari Murakami















The finish
Kazunari Murkami beat Katsuyori Shibata with a punch and a running knee. This was very disappointing. You have two of the biggest dicks and two of the best strikes, so what do you do? You have them do very little striking! Really disappointing when I was expecting explosive stiff shots and got none of it. The only really good thing I can say about this match was that they didn't go overboard and seemed to try and keep it look legit, but that's about it. Highlights here were Murakami getting dumped on his head with a backdrop and the little striking they got to do.

格闘探偵団バトラーツ -  アレクサンダー大塚 vs 石川雄規




Alexander Otsuka


Yuki Ishikawa























Yuki Ishikawa beat Alexander Otsuka with a Kimura at 16:47. Classic pro wrestling right here folks. Two dudes trying to simulate a fight to look as real as they could and they succeeded here. This was basic pro wrestling at its finest with guys getting the most out of basic moves and making it look real. They fought for everything, they resisted everything and they stiffed the hell out of each other. Yuki Ishikawa hit some great punches here. Both guys exchanged lots of nasty suplexes and MMA submissions. Near the end, Otsuka suplexed Ishikawa on his head multiple times and had Ishikawa barely able to answer the 10 count. Then Otsuka went for one too many suplexes and Ishikawa escaped it, setting up the kimura win. Simple stuff here that any one could do, but no one can because they don't get wrestling. It's pretty hard to find any real holes with this aside from maybe wanting to see more striking and a little bit more story. This was an excellent display of shoot style wrestling. Rating:****1/4
