Honestly, just know that both women don't hate each other, but they both really really really want to hold the Red Championship. Watch it with english commentary and they'll bring you up to speed as the match goes on. And don't spoil yourself on the match as much as possible

Hayashishita uses the BT bomb, aka Black Tiger's sitdown Razor's Edge bomb thing, and she spins it around sometimes. her other one is a torture rack into a blue thunder bomb kind of thing.

Syuri is an MMA style wrestler, so she tends to change her finishers between a well place kick or some sort of submission

F*ck it.

NICK GAGE VS. MATT CARDONA!

Tremendous psychology, excellent storytelling, all of the little things Cardona did to antagonize the crowd and then the way it paid off when he was getting destroyed. BEAUTIFUL! The finish made perfect sense given the story they wanted to get across, and the atmosphere was unreal. I don't like biased announcers and especially a biased ring announcer, but it worked so perfectly here. The commentary was just so wrong and mean in ways that should feel like... well... not what we do in 2021, but it all worked SOOOOO perfectly together. This might well be my new front-runner for Match of the Year and it's not the sort of match I ever thought I'd say that about.

In that case, no. I've been spending the past few weeks catching up on ROH and wXw in time to see the big shows (and I'm already behind two weeks for both of them and also for NXT UK again, LOL). Definitely seems like something I'd be interested in, though.
