NJPW: New Japan Cup – Kota Ibushi vs Hirooki Goto – New Japan Cup Final Match
Two of the best and most creative wrestlers in the world gave it their all in this match. Another showcase for the variety and aerial work that can be seen in New Japan but not in WWE.
WWE: Extreme Rules – Randy Orton vs Seth Rollins – Steel Cage Match for WWE World Heavyweight Championship
The actual title bout was a decent showing. It was a great piece of heel work by Rollins. He used Kane’ outside interference to defeat what was then a superior opponent. What’s more impressive was what the fight accomplished. It completed the feud between Rollins and Orton (WWE has been dragging out feuds long past their freshness lately). It helped showcase Rollins “improved” skillset and set up that later in the year he would be able to legitimately defend his title against formidable opponents. And it set up the Kane-Rollins feud later in the year.
NJPW: Invasion Attack 2015 – Hirooki Goto, TetsuyaNaito and Togi Makabe vs Chaos (Shinsuke Nakamura, Tomohiro Ishii and Yoshi Hashi ) – Six-Man Tag Match
Mega tag Matches always sound like a good a idea and then always disappoint. What if Roman Reigns and the Usos fought New Day and Kevin Owens? That sounds like a great match but wouldn’t live up to expectations. This is one of those rare mega tag matches were the expectations were met. You got to see six of NJPW biggest stars and they each got their moments.
WWE: Extreme Rules – Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler – “Kiss My Arse” MatchWhat was refreshing about this match was it’s unpredictably. Sheamus had just turned heel and Dolph is a self-proclaimed heel who’s becoming more and more of a face. So as this match went back and forth it really could have gone either way.
