--- Diamond Ring 30.09.2012 ---
1. CHANGO, Kazunari Murakami & Kenichiro Arai vs Kikutaro, Marines Mask II & Namazu Man
This is your standard D-Ring/K-Office opening match/comedy affiar, loads of hijinks and a lot of fun. While it might have a lot of the same gags we've seen before, for me, it never get's old, we also get a couple of cool moves from Marines Mask & Namazu Man. The main focus is Kikutaro & Murakami and features many call-backs to their previous encounters in Kensuke Office. Good fun. Namazu Man's in-ring character and wrestling quality have both only more and more refined over time.
2. Mitsuhiro Kitamiya vs Tomoaki Honma
A very dry match which is moistened up by some hard-way blood, Kitamiya showing a bit of fire and Honma going savage when he smells blood in the water. The most interesting thing was the post-match attack. Kitamiya seems like a good investment and has looked pretty impressive so far, especially in his tag match with Sasaki against Akiyamka & Kobashi on the 11.02.2012 Diamond Ring show.
3. K-ness, Masao Orihara & NOSAWA Rongai vs Menso-re Oyaji, Ryuji Hijikata & Satoshi Kajiwara
This was another very dry match with nothing really happening and a bit of a brawl post-match, there is not a whole lot to talk about, it felt like a painfully generic wrestling match. Kajiwara's flying head scissors takedown is pretty sweet and he is getting more and more fluid in the ring.
4. Jun Akiyama vs Kento Miyahara
Now this was a good battle that really went all out and all over, Miyahara looking to prove himself and Akiyama looking to give him a challange, plenty of big moves get unleashed and both guys bring the fight in a big way. Diamond Ring has a future star on their hands with Miyahara really stepping it up to the plate in the last 2 years.
5. Kensuke Sasaki & Tsurugi vs Takeshi Morishima & Takashi Sugiura
A fine tag team match, Tsurugi didn't offer much but Sasaki let the chops fly with Morishima and Sasaki going at it hard. It was a solid tag team match that came across a bit inconsistent at times with Tsurugi coming in and doing nothing after Sasaki has just unleashed hell. I think that match could of been up at 4 stars with someone else. Sasaki still gives and takes with the best of them and doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon.
6. Katsuhiko Nakajima vs Masato Tanaka
This match was a great war, as expected; tons of kicks, forearms and elbows, with things get heated fast, especially when Tanaka starts trying to use weapons to get the job done. Some awesome exchanges and transitions take place with both men landing a beating on the other man, in a match that takes multiple finishing blows before it is finally all over. Nakajima just get's better and better and looks to be one of the brightest shining lights in the future of puroresu.
