A-ha! You thought that I had forgotten about this column, didn't you? Well, I did. But...um, here's a new entry! It's unbelievably sad. The company? TNA (wait, come back) The year? 2014. So it's pretty recent, and yet, only one of the men involved in this six-fucker tag is currently situated on TNA's roster. How does that happen? Yasu and The Great (motherfucking) Muta appeared as special guests as part of a cross-promotional event. They called it a talent exchange with Wrestle-1, Muta's splinter enterprise that was created in the wake of AJPW's mass exodus. It's a long story.
Technically, Sanada - their tag partner - is still on contract with TNA because he's the reigning X Division Champion. The opposing side consists of Chris Sabin and Bad Influence (Kazarian/Daniels, a goddamn epic pairing). Three insanely talented dudes. Of course, they split from TNA in the weeks following Lockdown, which speaks to Dixie Carter's arrant cretinism. I don't need to explain why this match is already forgotten. Sure, it's an active bout, but in the end, it was ultimately meaningless.
What a shame. Muta is a fucking trooper. If you'll notice, he can barely stagger around the ring (man, those knees have seen some shit), but when he goes, he goes. I don't know how he manages to wrestle at such a blinding pace. Bear in mind, he's older than The Undertaker. That's a legit badass, folks.
