Csonka’s Dojo Pro (Episode Three) Review

– Wheeler Yuta defeated White Belt Holder Gunner Miller @ 9:30 via pin [***]

– Follow all of my reviews at this link.

THE CONCEPT: Dojo Pro presents the ultimate professional wrestling opportunity. A gauntlet competition in which 13 independent wrestlers, win and stay in, lose and go home. The competition includes Joey Janela, James Storm, Jeff Cobb, and many more who fight their way up the ladder. The winner of each match receives the Dojo Pro White Belt and continues on. The goal/reward is the Dojo Pro Black Belt, and a shot at the Ring of Honor World Television Championship.

The series is available on Amazon Prime.

– My episode one review is here.
– My episode two review is here.

* Gunner Miller: Defeated White belt Holder Kevin Ku @ 9:50 via referee stoppage in episode two. Miller says he stole Ku’s soul last time out by knocking him out and taking his belt.

* Wheeler Yuta: Yuta is 21 and currently working with MLW. He got into wrestling via video games when he was 5. He loves the wrestling business, and traveling the world to continue his career. He’s worked hard to diversify his style and become a complete performer. Yuta says what Miller did to Ku is an embarrassment. Miller interrupts the interview and they get into a pull apart. That was a nice and simple set up for this episode’s match

#11. White Belt Holder Gunner Miller vs. #10. Wheeler Yuta: Yuta is fired up and tries to attack at the bell, Miller overpowers him, but Yuta keeps firing away and attacking. He follows with arm drags and basement dropkicks, covering for 1. Yuta controls, keeps hitting offense, and covers but Miller keeps kicking out at 1. Yuta locks on an Indian death lock now, but Miller makes the ropes. He follows with chops as he continues to take the fight to Miller, the enziguri follows but Miller catches the high cross and hits an overhead belly to bell for 2. Miller now slows things, choking out Yuta, and then follows with corner spears. Miller follows with strikes and starts mauling Yuta. Yuta tries to fire back, but Miller cuts him off with a big backdrop. Yuta hits a desperation jawbreaker, but runs into a powerslam and Miller covers for 2. Yuta connects with kicks, and then hits a springboard missile dropkick. He then hits a tope (came up a bit short and Miller saved him). Back in and the high cross gets 2. Yuta follows with rights, but Miller hits the spinebuster for 2. Miller sets for the spear, Yuta avoids and hits a sitout belly to back suplex for 2. Yuta heads up top and flies off into a spear. The jackhammer follows, and Miller refuses to pin like last time. He drags Yuta to his feet, but Yuta counters the lariat into a cradle for 2. The superkick connects and then the top rope elbow drop connects for the win. Wheeler Yuta defeated White Belt Holder Gunner Miller @ 9:30 via pin [***] This was a good match with a built in and simple story of the babyface battling the bully to get revenge for his friend. The action was good and the story made sense, but I feel that they could have gotten more out of the Miller angle and had him go further before having him lose.

– Wheeler Yuta moves onto face Corey Hollis in episode four. Post match, Yuta says he found Miller’s weakness, which was his arrogance. He knows he has a long way to go but thinks he can go all the way.

– End scene.

– Thanks for reading.

“Byyyyyyyyyyyyyye Felicia.”

The final score: review Good
The 411
Episode three was another good show as they are linking the episodes together very well, and the wrestling again was good. I am also loving the format and short run times.
