Early in the wee hours of Monday morning ‘America Time’, a certain individual by the name of Misaki was busy soccer kicking the shit out of another guy by the name of Akiyama. Of course, soccer kicks to an opponent in the ‘four point position’ (aka forward facing doggy style) are illegal! But who cares about that? Akiyama ‘got away‘ with cheating against Sakuraba! Poor Sak kept slipping off Akiyama’s legs and took a beating from his greased up opponent.
It almost hits the level of poetic justice that Akiyama got finished by a potentially illegal blow, especially considering that during his entrance they repeatedly shows a bottle of Oil of Olay with it’s contents slowly and erotically being squeezed out.
Of course, any good controversy wouldn’t be complete without a big question mark surrounding the actual legality of the strike. General understanding of the four point position is it is ‘hands and knees’. But there’s talk that four point can also apply to ‘hands and feet’ … after all, the technical definition of four ‘points’ being on the ground means four things, so you can’t really argue that.
I’m sure there must be amateur wrestlers on this site that can tell us what the wrestling dictionary definition of ‘four point’ is, but who knows if that’s the same in Japan. After all, in America, a ‘happy ending’ would have been all the humans in the Transformers movie dying a slow and painful death followed by an hour of awesome robot on robot action. But in Japan, ‘happy ending’ just lands you in a small cell for a few days and disgusted looks from the prison guards.
Here’s the translated rules direct from the Yarennoka page, not that it will do much good here:
