Recap from Jesse Nyugen:
Elia and Shurman start off the match for their teams. Elia comes out with some strong words, this match already not safe for work. Shurman shows his strength advantage, and Elia bails to the floor. Elia gets some cheap shots in, but is caught on the way in. Shurman walks towards the camera before hitting a Fallaway Slam. Suzuki and Mikaze come in and trade kicks. Quick tag from the team of Mikaze and Shurman leads to quick damage to Suzuki. Mikaze trips up Suzuki and hits a spinning kick right to the back of the head! Suzuki kicks out of the first near fall. Suzuki gets the tag and Elia comes in with a body slam and knee drop. Elia sends Mikaze to the post chest first hard for another nearfall. Suzuki comes in hitting a running senton. 1…2…Mikaze kicks out again! Suzuki hits a dropkick right to the back of head, and Elia comes in with a standing legdrop. Mikaze gets turned inside out with a lariat. Another kickout from Mikaze! Suzuki comes back in only to get hit with an enzuguri. Hot tag to Shurman, who mows Elia down and hits a lift inverted DDT. Big boot to Elia’s face, but Suzuki makes the save! Shurman reverses the irish whip and hits a pump Powerbomb! 1…2…3! Mikaze and Shurman win the match!
Decent match. All four competitors showed that they know how to wrestle, but nothing too impressive from anyone. A little disappointing from Mikaze, who is suppose to be a ten year veteran. Easily one of Beyond Wrestling’s weakest matches.
Thoughts from TJ Hawke:
This was certainly not a great match, but it gives a solid taste of what all these guys have to offer. Even though Markopoulos is the one who got a TNA Gut Check tryout, I actually am a bigger fan of the other three. Taka, Mikaze, and Shurman all bring something unique to the table. It’s a real shame that Taka is stuck in Japan. I miss him a lot.
Match Rating: **1/2
