The (Big) Boys Are Back in Town

by Daniel Johnson

Ryota Hama and Akebono vs. Daisuke Sekimoto and Yuji Okabayashi

If you’re like me and live in the American Northeast then you can appreciate the ridiculous amount of snow that we’re getting today. To go hand in hand with this are two guys who look like they permanently have their winter coats on: Ryota Hama and Akebono. Without a doubt the reason this team sticks out the most is their immense size. It is a case of Booking 101. Have two big guys that you need something to do with? Stick them together. Not that random grouping doesn’t have it’s benefits. Without randomness we never would have had Team Hell No or this clip I found on the FAN forum.

As for the match Daisuke and Yuji jump the big boys at the start. The saying the bigger they are, the harder they fall really speaks volumes here. Hama looks like he is still getting up from this attack nearly three minutes into the match. The big spots of the match include Daisuke and Yuji suplexing Akebono and then giving him a belly-to-back suplex. At one point Daisuke even manages to powerbomb Hama! Maybe, I shouldn’t have put that exclamation point there. It is not nearly as exciting as it sounds since Hama was standing on the second rope to set up the powerbomb. After plenty of punishment, Yuji scores the pin following three lariats.
