My views on Pro Wrestling from the East and West

Thursday, February 03, 2005


Results from yesterday's show see the RO@D faction now control ALL of All Japan's title belts except for the Triple Crown! The mystery partner replacing D-Lo in the All Asian tag title match teaming with Buchanan was non-other then recently released WWE star Rico! The duo defeated the New Japan team of Masayuki Naruse & Mitsuya Nagai to bring the titles back to All Japan.
Elsewhere on the card, TAKA Michinoku successfully made his first defense of the All Japan Jr. Title against Mini Love Machine (Gran Hamada) and Taiyo Kea & Jamal made a successful defense of the tag titles against Keiji Mutoh & super rookie Kohei Suwama.
Satoshi Kojima also debuted his new submission finisher, the udeshibo, which is a shoulder lock to give his team the win in a six man tag.
