I saw a 14-man battle royale from the Noah federation last night (I live in Japan and got cable...) It was held outdoors in the pouring rain, but that had a roof over the ring, so only the fans got soaked (analagous to WWE and major league baseball fans, I guess...)

Anyway, this was not an over-the-top-rope battle royale, but a pinfall battle royale. And it was nothing like American battle royales where pretty much everyone is beating on everyone with an occasional guy taking a breather. *Everyone* was just sort of standing around, looking and waiting for somebody to make a move. Finally, two guys got into it, and one rolled the other up for a small package. Everyone else gathered around and piled on top, crushing the guy on the bottom for the pin. Then they rolled them over so the other guy got pinned.

Obviously, as soon as anyone went down on the ground, all the rest of them would gang up and crush them down for the pin. So of course, there was no incentive to do anything, just stay away and hope not to get involved. Eventually, some guys would get it on, only to be eliminated the same way.

When it got down to seven guys, they split off into two teams. Each team convinced their "leader" to go out and fight. So for a minute we had Kenta Kobayashi vs Jun Akiyama, kinda like the Rock vs Triple H of Noah. They went at it for a minute, Kobayashi hitting a half nelson suplex, then Akiyama popping up for an Exploider. After that, all the other guys ganged up and pinned them both, seriously bumming out the crowd.

Eventually it got down to three guys, and two teamed up on the other one. The guy who was ganged on tried a sunset flip, but the third guy turned on his partner, head butting him and forcing him down for the pin, before turning the sunset flip over on the other guy to win the match (the winner was Makoto Hashi, if anyone cares)

For his win, he received 30 kg of rice. All the other competitors came into the ring to congratulate him, and did the thing where they throw the guy in the air and catch him in celebration. Only the third time they all moved and didn't catch him, and left him lying...

I don't think that's a finish we'll ever see booked in North America...

Lol...I'd love to see that last spot. Do you mean to tell me that the Japanese have psychology in their matches? How odd!

Like I said, I'm in Japan and saw it while flipping channels. Might show up someday on puroresu.com or somewhere like that...

Wait a minute, 30kg of rice? What the heck kind of prize is that? Do they have tournaments for a bottle of soy sauce or something?

Well, I suppose winning 30 kg of rice is better than having to go out and buy some yourself.

Of course, I'm an American, and so I don't really have a good idea of exactly what 30 kg of rice would look like...



I can't believe it! I just got pinned by a freaking 12-year-old!--

Ekedolphin, picture 75 pounds of beef... Now, convert the beef to rice. That's 30 kg of rice (it's a lot!). But, yes, that is one damned wierd prize.

That'd be an interesting little story for some random midcarder that doesn't have anything better to do (pick one, there's a bunch!)

After one of their jaunts overseas, say he won one of those bizarre food prizes, and have him carry it around like it was the most amazing thing ever.

Of course, it might be better if it was something other than a big bag o' rice... if you wallop someone with that, and it splits open, it'd take FOREVER to clean up.

It may be symbolic, or traditional. Rice was used as currency until the Meiji period. 30 kg is around one koku, which was a standard unit of taxation and the amount of rice thought to be needed by a person for one year.

Well, of course it's EATEN. But that's just a reason as to why the "weird" prize is given.

However, it COULD be used in one of those water playsets that people had in kindergarten with the waterwheels and shovels and stuff. Anyone else have one of those things? They RULED!

True, though that would make for a great Royal Rumble tradition.

Imagine if this happened to Angle--he wins the Rumble, gets down on his knees and breaks down into tears while the whole locker room rushes out clapping and cheering, everyone hoists Angle up on their shoulders while Angle is smiling, crying, and talking about how he's the best and everyone loves him only for everyone to toss him up in the air, not catch him, and leave a pissed of Angle to moan and bitch at everyone about his treatment. Angle could make this funny as hell.



Cause' here me and KG come naked, out of the side hatch, with the oils and perfumes, and incense!
