Match of the Day - Brooklyn's Finest gets the cobra (JTG finally got released)

JTG vs. Santino Marella - JTG's last match in WWE - Superstars (2013)


It's a sad day if you are a WWE fan/meme enthusiast as "STILL EMPLOYED" JTG got the cut along with the 10 other superstars who were future endeavored by management today.

The final count for JTG's employment with the WWE is 07 Years, 30 days, 00 hours, 25 minutes, 12 seconds. JTG had not wrestled a match on TV since September of last year where he took a beautiful hit from Santino's notorious cobra.


Goodnight sweet prince of Brooklyn.

I think about mongoloids a lot.

Match of the Day - The one where Kyoko Kimura jumps off a balcony

Kyoko Kimura vs. Kayoko Haruyama - JWP Openweight title match - JWP Pure Slam (2009)


Time for some hardcore female action. Yes I meant to write that, and no I'm not going to change it.

Kyoko Kimura takes on Kayoko Haruyama in a super violent bout that includes an unforgettable balcony spot... yes, this is the match where Kimura jumps off a balcony, landing directly onto Haruyama below:


Kimura also cuts Haruyama with some sort of shank, straggles her with a chain, and trades some pretty stiff-looking strikes. However, everything else is irrelevant once you've seen this balcony spot.

Match of the Day - Curt Hennig saves Chris Jericho's life... basically

Curt Henning vs. Chris Jericho - WCW Monday Nitro (1997)



It might seem like a dream match now, but back in '97 a Hennig/Jericho match on Monday Nitro was just an excuse to talk about any other than a Hennig/Jericho match. A shame really, but this was WCW at the height of the nWo days, remember.

While this match may forever be lost in the mix of other forgettable Nitro matches used to talk about the nWo, it does include a mishap on Chris Jericho's behalf that may not seem that big of a deal in hindsight, but it could have ended Jericho's career if it gone any worse. What I'm talking about is Jericho's Lionsault (middle rope springboard moonsault) towards the end of the match that he botches by not rotating enough - the same exact move and mishap that paralyzed Hayabusa a few years later. Luckily in this instance, Curt Hennig, either on instinct or following out the spot, put his knees up at just the right time that Jericho ends up landing on Henning's knees with his back rather than on his head and, well, pretty much saving his neck:


phew.

Match of the Day - Kaval kicks Dolph Ziggler's face in

Kaval vs. Dolph Ziggler - Intercontinental title match - Survivor Series (2010)



In Kaval's first and only appearance on a WWE PPV, The "World Warrior" looked to make an impact. That impact did not come in the form of a title win - it came in the form of a knee right smack in the face of Dolph Ziggler. Don't believe me? Here's the .gif for proof:


Damn.
