The Batiri (Obariyon & Kodama) vs. Milk Chocolate (Brandon Watts & Randy Summers) from Beyond Wrestling Tournament for Tomorrow 3:16
Post by Kevin Ford:
Obariyon and Summers switch front facelocks on the mat. Summers escapes a side headlock. Obariyon shoulder blocks Summers. Summers responds with a hip toss and enzuigiri. Kodama and Watts tag in. A Lucha sequence between them ends with a toreador from Kodama. Watts grabs Kodama’s crotch! Kodama shoves him away in disbelief. Watts does a little twerk, causing Kodama to retreat to the floor. He tags in Obariyon who seems reluctant to enter. Watts drop toe holds Obariyon onto the second rope. Milk Chocolate Eiffel Tower him on the ropes. Summers snapmares Obariyon into a basement dropkick. Obariyon mows Summers down with a back elbow for two. Kodama bites on Summers’ shoulder and face. The referee admonishes him, which Kodama thinks is absurd given his crotch was grabbed. He has a point! Summers bites back after Kodama blinds him with his own bandana. The Batiri continue to beat down Summers. Milk Chocolate try to pull “twin magic”, but it does not work. Eventually, Obariyon misses a top rope splash, allowing Summers to tag out. Watts cleans house on the Batiri. He big boots Kodama into a standing moonsault for two. Kodama hops over a corner attack from Watts. A barrage of boots from the Batiri pummel a seated Watts in the corner, but it’s not enough to keep him down for a three count. Summers blind tags in when Watts is whipped to the ropes. Watts kicks Obariyon and Summers knocks him down with a rolling clotheslines. Obariyon attacks Watts from the outside of the ring. Summers kicks Obariyon and calls for a dive. The Batiri cut him off with the Skull Bronzing for a two count. Watts switches places with Summers, hoping that putting on his bandana will cause confusion. It does, and Watts is able to small package Obariyon for the pin at 12:13.
All in all this was fairly pedestrian. The one thing that stood out to me was how convincing and aggressive Kodama was on offense. A better crowd could have led to the shenanigans coming off better, but as it was they were just there. **¼
