2014 Submission Maneuver of the Year

I can’t believe I forgot to include this in the 2014 Koala Mask Awards!!!

What you are seeing above is DJ Nira defeating Super Sasadango Machine and Antonio Honda in a 3-Way match at DDT Wrestle Koyama Hotei on September 21st 2014. Antonio Honda is the one in the corner punching himself in the genitals. DDT everyone!

The reason such an unconventional submission maneuver was so successful in the match was because the leg of Super Sasadango machine had been “hurt” earlier in the match. That’s about as much explanation as you’ll get.

J-Shoot: Kenny Omega Interview

In a special episode of J-Shoot, I had the absolute pleasure of talking with the Bullet Club’s newest member Kenny “The Cleaner” Omega. You can listen to the interview on iTunes, PodOmatic, and Stitcher.

Kenny talks extensively about his career in wrestling, DDT, NJPW, Bullet Club, PWG, wrestling rubber sex dolls and young girls, Wrestle Kingdom 9 and more.

One of the highlights for me was Kenny talking about his epic encounter with ACH at PWG BOLA 2014. A match which involved Streetfighter moves, Austin vs. The Rock, and even a chainsaw*.

Kenny also talks about the inspiration for his new “The Cleaner” Bullet Club persona.

You can follow Kenny Omega on Twitter here, and you can watch him wrestle live at the highly anticipated New Japan Wrestle Kingdom 9 from the Tokyo Dome on January 4th, available on NJPW World and on PPV in association with Global Force Wrestling. Finally, you can follow me on twitter here.

*Not a real chainsaw.

Instead of choosing a current pro-wrestler who has caught my attention, I’ve chosen a wrestler from the past who has caught my attention. That wrestler this week is Shinya Hashimoto.
