VIDEO & RECAP: Maximo in New Japan Pro Wrestling!
Two of Maximo’s matches from New Japan! The first is from 7/18 with Maximo teaming with Jushin “Thunder” Liger, Tiger Mask & Captain New Japan against Tomohiro Ishii, Jado, Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov. Fun match. Goes 10 minutes. Maximo does his usual comedy spots in front of a different crowd, so they were well received. He hit a tope to the outside late in the match as they did the lucha spot were several guys hit topes or dives, leaving only two wrestlers to determine the match. Ishii got the win over Captain New Japan. Post-match Liger challenged Koslov and Romero.
The second match is from the 7/19 show with Maximo teaming with Jushin “Thunder” Liger & Tiger Mask against Gedo, Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov. Good match. More comedy from Maximo. He worked mostly with Gedo so that was fun. Finish of the match was Gedo trying to kiss Gedo, but Rocky Romero gets involved. Maximo instead kisses Rocky Romero. Maximo then goes back to trying to kiss Gedo, but Gedo stops him. Maximo gets the pin with La Majistral. Post-match, Maximo puts on Koslov’s hat and dances with it which didn’t amuse Alex one bit.
