Match Thoughts: I am calling it the Cattle Mutilation since that is what we know it as now, and Danielson admittedly got the move from watching old Muta matches. Anyway, I love Muta squash matches. The announcers really put him over in a way that you just don't hear these days about wrestlers working their way up, they didn't talk about any other storylines but just focused on the match that they were watching. The Space Rolling Elbow got a great reaction and it is fun watching Mutoh slowly get over with the crowd just by his unique wrestling style. Score: 6.5
