Fun match.  The butt stuff that Taguchi does is silly and juvenile, especially in a wrestling match, but the crowd pops for it.  I cannot argue if the crowd likes that type of comedy.  It is cool to see Zayne playing along for the crowd’s enjoyment.

Both men had their shoulders on the mat.  The referee counts to three.  The graphics show Ace Austin as the winner.  The announcers argue that both men had their shoulders pinned.  

The referee says Austin is the winner.

Ace Austin takes the lead in A Block with 10 points total.  Taiji Ishimori remains at 8 points.

Great match until the finish.  Austin had to bridge with his neck to keep his shoulders up.  The camera clearly showed both of his shoulders on the mat.  You can argue that the referee made the judgement call, but Austin could have helped himself by doing that small thing so there would be no controversy.  Unless this was a part of a long term angle.

However, still a great match.  Austin is over in Japan and the crowd pops for him.  With this win, he should be in line for a title shot against Taiji Ishimori.

Wow!  Good match and an upset, in my opinion.  BUSHI was at the top of his game in this match.  This give El Phantasmo a chance to take the lead in B Block.
