Match Thoughts: I am really only reviewing these for completist sake and I like to watch Muta wrestling outside of Japan. This was more of a unique spectacle then anything else, seeing Mutoh wrestling some new people like current WWE wrestler Primo Colon in this case. Nosawa played the role as secondary wrestler well versus the much bigger Apolo, and Colon was clearly the targeted one since he was the weak link. A fun little brawl but with no real ending and not much Muta it isn't something anyone needs to spend too much time tracking down unless they just want to see all of Muta's odd matches. Like me. Score: 5.0
