Muta attacks Hall from behind to start the match, hiptoss by Muta and he dropkicks Hall out of the ring. Muta then sails out onto Hall with a pescado before rolling him back into the ring. Muta goes up to the top turnbuckle but Hall punches him in the gut as he jumps off. Irish whip by Hall and he hits a lariat for a two count. Arm wringer by Hall and he flips Muta to the mat. Armbar by Hall, Muta struggles to his feet and dropkicks out of the hold. Irish whip by Muta, reversed, and Hall delivers a powerslam. Dropkick by Hall, he picks up Muta, Irish whip by Muta but Hall shoulderblocks him down. Hall goes off the ropes, he goes for a crossbody but Muta ducks and Hall bounces harmlessly off the ropes. German suplex hold by Muta and he picks up the three count! Your winner: Great Muta

Match Thoughts: At least Hall got in some decent offense his second go-around with Muta. An odd match in that it was pretty back and forth, but Muta suddenly won with the German suplex. So it definitely wasn't a squash, but Muta still won definitively anyway. I'd rather they have gone longer if it wasn't going to be a one-sided affair as I don't know what this type of match does for Muta at this point, but overall it wasn't terrible. Score: 5.0
