Re: ZIP JAPAN Days of Dominance TONIGHT at 9pm EST

Postby TheDenizen » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:58 pm

Let's do this:

Days of Dominance results
Spoiler: show
- Jumbo Jinzei vs Mr Suplex
Image
This was a great way to start the show. An unsurprisingly excellent outing from a couple of ZIP JAPAN veterans who have squared off against each other more than once in the past. Mr Suplex and Jumbo Jinzei both know each other's capabilities inside and out, resulting in some great reversal sequences. After some bruising throws and brutal open hand slaps, Suplex took it to the top and nailed a huge Avalanche German about 14 minutes in. Jumbo didn't like that and subsequently stuffed two more consecutive attempts at the move by Mr Suplex. In the end, Mr Suplex finally gave up on trying to kill Jumbo from the top and won it with a phenomenal Machine Suplex Hold.

Fatal 4 way Elimination
- Danger Daniels vs Satoshi Iguchi vs Yutaro Ichikawa vs Darkness HAGE
Image
Exciting Juniors action that lasted over 23 minutes before we got our first elimination. HAGE and Iguchi in particular were hitting tons of big moves, but it was Yutaro Ichikawa who made the least experienced guy in the match tap with his Minoru Special armbar. Iguchi then ended Ichikawa's night with a signature cutter before HAGE immediately put Iguchi down with the FFF Facebuster. A good night for Darkness HAGE, reclaiming some of the momentum he lost when he failed to become ZIP JAPAN Junior Heavyweight Champ at the Storm of Darkness event.

- Momoe Ito vs Cutie Booties
Image
Momoe wanted to make this match all about who was cuter in the buildup, but once they got in the ring, these girls just beat the crap out of each other. Ito was looking to capitalize on a poor run of form for Cutie Booties, and hit lots of her big special moves including a Momoe Latch and Phoenixplex for a couple of 2.9s. Cutie managed to keep her head on her shoulders and do her thing, finally stopping the Rocketship Kawaii dead in her tracks with the second Cutie Kick of the match after two traded near falls like crazy down the stretch. A much needed victory for Ms Booties.

- Johnny Rekless vs Super Scorpio
Image
Well, I guess the judges think Scorpio is an ugly mofo as well, as this match was much better than the rating indicates, despite being a little on the short side. I put it down to Rekless wanting to get the hell away from Scorpio as fast as possible, hitting tons of flippy moves right out of the gate, completely no selling Scorpio's Twist of Fate special, and racking up a solid victory with the second Inverted 450 of the match. At least nobody got turned to stone.

Fatal 4 way Elimination
- Eun-jin Choi vs Hanako Yoshii vs Rebecca Roxx vs Psycho Witch
Image
This was the match we've all been waiting for Hanako Yoshii to have since her ZIP JAPAN debut (especially Senator). This match was packed with insane action and went almost 28 minutes (with Psycho Witch and Rebecca Roxx in particular going after each other viciously), before Yoshii scored the first elimination by Armbarring the Korean judoka Eun-jin Choi out of a victory roll. Yoshii then caught the deadly Psycho Witch with an Avalanche Armbreaker, and picked up the clean sweep by flattening Roxx with her C2C double knee attack. A dominant, star-making performance from Hanako...and possibly MOTN.

Archive match from 2005
- Wataru Nakajima/Crusher Kodo vs Pure HEEL (Kenji Sawada and Kenzo Kobayashi)
Image
Wow, a real endurance test in the archive match from 2005, featuring black haired Nakajima and a very young version of Pure HEEL. Kodo was involved in the early parts of this match, but gassed out after taking a nasty Schwein from Kenzo on the floor around 18 minutes in, leaving his (slightly) younger partner to do the majority of the work down the stretch. Eventually Nakajima got run down by HEEL's relentless assault, and fell to a Sawada Towerhacker Bomb. The pin happened right in front of Kodo who hilariously got in the ring and then just wandered in a circle around the pin without breaking it up. This was the sort of performance that led to Crusher Kodo deciding to hang up his boots for good in 2006.

Fatal 4 way Elimination
- Mad Bomber vs GORO vs Thunder Fist vs Akira Shinjo
Image
Brutal, relentless action in this one. GORO talked a lot of shit in the lead up to this show, running all 3 of his opponents down, and he started very strong, taking out the always dangerous Thunder Fist with an Olympic Slam fairly early (though most of the damage was done by an Avalanche Powerbomb courtesy of the Bomber), leaving Akira Shinjo to battle Bomber and GORO for a while on his own. GORO's luck ran out once Mad Bomber got a hold of him though, and GORO got CRITICALed by a sick Mad Rush Powerbomb, and Akira Shinjo got pinned by the exact same move seconds later. Mad Bomber making a real statement with this victory.

No 1 Contender for ZIP JAPAN Junior Heavyweight Championship
- Ichiro Katagiri vs Shuji Tsukamoto
Image
Speaking of brutality, this match delivered TONS of it. These guys seemed like they were legit trying to kill each other, Tsukamoto hitting his Ice Pick very early and Katagiri throwing his knees into Shuji's face over and over. After taking a couple of Ushigoroshi's from Tsukamoto, Katagiri really turned on his technical style, catching Tsukamoto with a surprising number of technical reversals into submission moves to turn the tide of the match. The finish was great with Katagiri hitting a Reverse Tombstone for the win, and finally earning that one on one match against Tetsuo K for the Junior Championship. Another MOTN contender.

No 1 Contender for ZIP JAPAN Tag Team Championship
- Nails n Grinds (Jimmy Nails and Mickey Grinds) vs Blue Destiny (Jin Matsuda and Maki Yoshida)
Image
Fantastic...fast paced, technical, hard hitting action of the sort I love to see from these two well oiled tag teams. Too many great spots in this match to fully recount, with both duos exhibiting some excellent teamwork throughout. If tag team wrestling is your jam, it doesn't get much better than this one. After trading many near falls and sickening head drops, Maki Yoshida finally picked up the win by crushing Jimmy Nails' neck with a shattering half nelson suplex right in the Blue Destiny corner of the ring. Blue Destiny vs Storm of the Century for the Tag Team Championships on the next show will be hot.

ZIP JAPAN Heavyweight Championship
- Daisuke Shimura vs Demon Otsu (c)
Image
Shocking result #1 right here, as Daisuke Shimura wrestled one of the best matches of his life against the frightening Demon Otsu. He expertly cut off Otsu's offense time and time again (Otsu failed to land a single powerbomb or Devil's Drop in the match), while working the Demon's legs like crazy. Lots of leg whips and wear down kneebreaker holds were mixed in with Shimura's usual arsenal of suplexes and strikes. After a couple of attempts, Mr Rock and Roll finally locked in the Sasori-gatame in the center of the ring and forced Otsu to tap out! Spectacular upset, and now Shimura embarks on his first Heavyweight Championship run in almost 6 long years.

ZIP JAPAN Joshi Championship
- Vicki Violence vs Aya Mizuno (c)
Image
Shocking result #2, as Vicki Violence somehow weathered the absolute whirlwind of destruction that is Aya Mizuno. Mizuno brought all of her nastiest kicks, piledrivers, and German suplexes to the table, but the hardcore menace Vicki fought back with scythes and forks. Vicki did some nice damage down the stretch with a pair of Package Piledrivers before setting up for a spectacular finish. Violence's Avalanche Urunage left Mizuno dead center in the ring, where she ate a sick Sliding V elbow to the face. Mizuno's undefeated run in ZIP JAPAN has finally come to an end, and Vicki Violence is the new ZIP JAPAN Joshi Champion!

It was a great night of sims, especially if you include all the cool stuff from the preshow and postshow matches! Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting ZIP JAPAN :D

The next event will be held on Friday July 13 (ooooh, Friday the 13th lol) at the usual time. The Tag Team and Junior Heavyweight Championships will both be on the line at that show, full card will be posted in a day or two. Hope to see everyone there! :mrgreen:

Postby TheDenizen » Mon Jul 02, 2018 2:26 pm

Just a heads up coming out of the Days of Dominance event: GORO and Aya Mizuno have both suffered minor injuries in their matches. GORO got a lower back injury as a result of his brutal powerbombing by Mad Bomber and will miss the next 4-6 weeks. Aya Mizuno had her shoulder dislocated when Vicki Violence delivered an Avalanche Urunage and will miss approximately 3 weeks of action.

Plus, the card for the next ZIP JAPAN event, Heat Wave, has been added to the first page. Should be a good show, see you there!

ZIP JAPAN Promo Roundup!
Spoiler: show
*camera fades in on Rebecca Roxx standing in front of a ZIP JAPAN banner. She speaks in English and her words are translated into Japanese kanji at the bottom of the screen*

Rebecca: Well, I sure as hell don't know what I did to get under the skin of Psycho Witch, but she's clearly upset with me. All you gotta do is watch the elimination match from Days of Dominance, you'll see that Witch was out to get me with a vengeance, singling me out for abuse all over the ring and the arena floor. Hanako Yoshii may have ended up having the final say in that match, but I haven't forgotten about you Psycho Witch. I've been accused of lots of things in my life, but one thing I ain't never been accused of is runnin' from a fight! Reiko's seen fit to give us a shot at each other one on one, and I aim to prove to everyone in ZIP JAPAN that I ain't afraid'a you, and I can beat your ass in the middle of the ring! 1..2..3!

*Rebecca throws up her dukes and shadow boxes for the camera for a few seconds, before a ZIP JAPAN logo swooshes across the screen. Yumi Yamaguchi is standing in front of the camera*

Yumi: <So the unstoppable champion Mizuno has been stopped, leaving Vicki Violence standing with the ZIP JAPAN Joshi Championship in her hands. Now I find myself vying for a Number one contender spot, against the very dangerous Hanako Yoshii. She proved how tough she is at the last show, dominating her match with deadly submissions, but I have to say I like my chances! I've been working a lot over the past few weeks with my friend Eun-jin Choi, and she's really helped me up my submission defense game. My destiny is to become the ZIP JAPAN Joshi Champ, and if I manage to get past Yoshii, I'll be coming for you, Vicki...and I'm gonna drop you on your head until I achieve my goal!>

*Yumi bows to the camera and a ZIP JAPAN logo swoosh transitions to Thunder Fist and Wataru Nakajima standing side by side, both wearing their Tag Team Championship belts. Nakajima does the majority of the talking as Thunder fist lurks menacingly*

Nakajima: <This Friday night at Heat Wave, Fist and I are defending our Tag Team Championship against the team of Blue Destiny. Our individual results have been up and down over the past few shows, but when Thunder Fist and I are together in the ring, we just seem to click. We've got that intangible X-factor that makes us a successful team, accenting each others strengths and covering for each others weaknesses. Maki Yoshida and Jin Matsuda of Blue Destiny are both very accomplished wrestlers and we don't take their challenge lightly at all...but Fist and I are both brimming with the kind of confidence that only comes with holding the gold! (Nakajima pats his title belt, which is covering most of his belly) Thunder Fist and I have only been getting closer every week, bonding inside the ring and out of it, learning to communicate better than ever. (Nakajima gives Fist a little punch on the arm and speaks to him directly) Tell them, Fist! Tell them what you've learned!>

Thunder Fist: (in broken but understandable Japanese) <NAKAJEEMA FIST are best team in ZIP JAPAN! We smash Blue Destiny and win! We be champions...forever!>

*Nakajima beams with a pride and claps Thunder Fist heartily on the back. The ZIP JAPAN logo swooshes across the screen to reveal a sour faced Aya Mizuno, her left shoulder heavily taped*

Aya: <OK. Game fucking on. Vicki Violence caught me in a split second of weakness, and I paid the ultimate price for it. Rest assured it will NOT happen again. To make things worse, my man Demon Otsu lost his championship as well...all in all it could have been a better night for us. We were meant to be a dominating power couple, owning the promotions top titles and lording it over everyone...but now we are both angry and hungry, and back in the title chase. Otsu should have no problems getting past Mad Bomber and Donnie Doogan this Friday, and he'll get his revenge on Daisuke Shimura before you know it. I'm gonna miss the Heat Wave show due to my shoulder injury, but as soon as I return, I'll be gunning for the Joshi champion, whether it's Vicki Violence, Hanako Yoshii or Yumi Yamaguchi. I can beat any one of you bitches, so getting back my championship is just a matter of time. See you soon, ladies!>

*Mizuno blows a kiss at the camera, and then suddenly sprays a burst of green mist onto the lens, completely obscuring the image before the screen slowly fades to black*

ZIP JAPAN Heat Wave is in the books, and what a show it was.

Thanks very much to the folks who came to watch, and to the random raiders who temporarily boosted my stream up to nearly 30 viewers lol.

I normally don't pimp my preshows too hard, as I mostly use them to book fun dream matches in a non-canon environment, but this particular preshow was something special. 5 matches, every one rated 100%. If you wanna watch it, the Twitch archive is here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/284350580

for the record, the preshow card is below in the spoiler box
Spoiler: show
Mascara Americana (Blehschmidt) vs American Mullet (Zealot)
Meow Mask (magmadiver) vs El Pollo Gigante (MrRezister) vs Flamingo (pandakid) vs Ostrich (some guy) vs Pingu (some other guy)
Frygid Winters (Dawnbreaker) vs Polaris (will)
Lilith Brooks (Phimeek) vs Vivid Vivian Vaughn (Bowgetta)
Marissa Maples (Prof Voodoo) and Canadian Grizzly (Senator) vs Megan Van Horne (Hana) and Uncle Slam (pandakid)

And now on to the main course :P

ZIP JAPAN Heat Wave is currently archived here on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/284378971

ZIP JAPAN Heat Wave results:
Spoiler: show
- Super Scorpio vs Tora Katsu
Image
Pretty much a squash match. Scorpio focused all his rage that has been building since he lost his mask, got injured and got his ass kicked in a series of matches against Yutaro Ichikawa, and took it all out on poor Tora Katsu. Katsu barely got a look in here sadly, and Scorpio stopped him dead with a couple of moonsaults and a moonsault stomp.

- Eun-jin Choi vs Cutie Booties
Image
Super lady fight action, a real back and forth battle here. Cutie started strong with lots of kicks, while Choi focused on her legwork, trying to keep Cutie off her feet. Choi hit a Seoul Breaker for a 2.9 and when that didn't work she went back to the legs. Eun-jin managed to hit her Gory bomb -> Cross Kneebreaker prio, but Cutie somehow escaped to the ropes and immediately nailed a Cutie Kick to pick up the victory.

Triple Threat Elimination match
- Mr. Suplex vs Mickey Grinds vs Kenji Sawada
Image
Interesting dynamic in this match, a group of solid veterans, but two of them tag specialists without their usual partners. Kenji CRITICAL'd poor Mickey with his nasty Evil Clutch Piledriver, and hit Mr Suplex on the arena floor with the same move. Mr Suplex is used to getting dropped on his head though, after so many years in ZIP JAPAN. He shrugged it off and got Sawada in the center of the ring with his version of the Genki Raiga-plex for the win. Very satisfying.

- Saburo Hamada and Yutaro Ichikawa vs Shuji Tsukamoto and Satoshi Iguchi
Image
Pretty solid tag match here, all 4 guys getting their moment in the sun and hitting plenty of offense. Ichikawa in particular was impressive, hitting a couple of towering Cannonballs for near falls. In the end, Hamada got a slice of luck, hitting a big German Suplex on Tsukamoto in the middle of the ring while Iguchi was being kept busy. Enjoyable if not exceptional.

- Rebecca Roxx vs Psycho Witch
Image
This Joshi match was stacked with brutality. Rebecca moved around the ring exceptionally well for someone who took a savage beating last show and is also just back from having major neck surgery, and she scored big with a few dives during the match. However, Psycho Witch hit TWO exploders from the top rope to the arena floor, then a Mad Splash dive, and THEN a belly to belly from the apron to the floor. It was pretty damn sick. To top it off Witch got into a spirit punch battle with Roxx, busted her open, then made her tap out to the Dragon Clutch and left her in a bloody heap in the ring. Ugly.

Archive Match from 2007
- Daisuke Shimura vs Kintaro
Image
Well hot damn, I honestly didn't give Shimura much of a chance here, but he proved he could bring the goods even against a living legend like Kintaro. Kintaro hit all his best stuff including a Fisherman Express and his huge Kinniku Buster, but Shimura just took it all in stride and came back like a house of fire. Shimura worked the legs like crazy, desperate to land a submission victory via Sasori-gatame, but in the end managed to score a clean pinfall with a German Suplex after 30 minutes of action. This match would've been the sort of thing that catapulted Shimura to the main event scene back in the day.

Fatal 4 Way Elimination match
- Johnny Rekless vs Justin Starr vs ECKO vs Darkness HAGE
Image
Darkness HAGE was certainly in a foul mood tonight, making Justin Starr tap in under 17 minutes to the Sharpshooter leaving the other 3 to duke it out for almost another 20 minutes. Rekless looked particularly good, nailing most of his big moves at least once, and generally staying out of the way during the "let's kill each other on the arena floor" segment of the match, but in the end HAGE eliminated everyone. The Dark One used his HAGE Firebomb to deliver a sickening CRITICAL to Rekless before finishing off ECKO with his signature FFF facebuster. With HAGE apparently on the warpath, everyone else in the Junior Division has to be on alert.

No 1 Contender match for ZIP JAPAN Joshi Championship
- Hanako Yoshii vs Yumi Yamaguchi
Image
What a match this was. Super high drama, with Yoshii working the arms throughout and fighting through the pain of being repeatedly dumped on her head at awkward angles by Yumi Yamaguchi. Tons of gnarly bumps in this one, and dives from both girls and several 2.9 counts down the stretch. Hanako survived TWO Angelic Drivers, and pretty much no sold a powerbomb to deliver a victory roll armbar for the submission victory...it easily could've gone either way, this was probably MOTN. This or the Juniors Title match.

Triple Threat Elimination match to determine No 1 Contender for ZIP JAPAN Heavyweight Championship
- Mad Bomber vs Donnie Doogan vs Demon Otsu
Image
Demon Otsu suffered a minor blip when he lost the Heavyweight Championship to Shimura last show, but he was right back on his horse tonight. This match was a huge hossfest of powerful, brutish heels, and Otsu proved to be the hossiest of hosses. He showed Mad Bomber how it was done, eliminating both Doogan and Bomber with a couple of Powerbomb variations. Next show will feature Otsu vs Shimura III for the Heavyweight crown, I'm sure the rubber match will be just as awesome as their previous two encounters.

ZIP JAPAN Tag Team Championship match
- Blue Destiny (Maki Yoshida and Jin Matsuda) vs Storm of the Century (Thunder Fist and Wataru Nakajima) (C)
Image
Super deflating :( I was really hoping for SotC to retain here and have a long run, but it was not in the cards. The match was building nicely, but just as it was getting really good, it ended suddenly with a Matsuda rollup right in front of Nakajima's corner. Nakajima came in to make the save, but just stood there and didn't break up the pin. It was weird, not sure where SotC go from here. Nakajima/Fist are still the Champions of our hearts though :P

ZIP JAPAN Junior Heavyweight Championship match
- Ichiro Katagiri vs Tetsuo K (C)
Image
Our other real MOTN contender, as Katagiri finally completed his lengthy quest to regain the ZIP JAPAN Junior Championship after many months of toil in the lower and midcard. This match was fast paced and super violent, both guys going balls to the wall to get the victory, kicking and kneeing the ever loving crap out of each other. They traded finishers like crazy, but Katagiri survived THREE Tetsuo Fire Star Splashes and achieved his goal via a nasty Reverse Tombstone piledriver. Like others said in the chat, I can't wait to hear Katagiri's first promo after this glorious victory.

All in all a really good show with a couple of super amazing moments, and a couple of not so great moments :P Still, between the preshow and the main card, we had a total of 16 matches and 11 x 100% ratings. I'll take that any day :D

Thanks again to the peeps who support ZIP JAPAN, we'll do it again in a couple of weeks. Next show will be on Friday July 27, 2018 at 9pm EST, full card will be announced soon!
