Cool as Sunomono
Shane Haste and Mikey Nicholls vs Yuji Okabayashi and Shinya Ishikawa, 5 January 2014 (Pro Wrestling NOAH)
Controlling Yuji Okabayashi in a side headlock, tossing him back into the ring, weathering a headscissor hold from Shinya Ishikawa, or getting choked some more against the middle rope, Shane Haste stays cool as a cucumber and daikon salad. He and Mikey Nicholls are my favorite tag team anywhere, mostly because physically they're wasabi hot, but they let nothing keep them down for long, hence their team name TMDK (The Mighty Don't Kneel).
Basically this posting is just an excuse to make some GIFs of my man Shane, who is, as of 25 March 2016, under contract to WWE in the USA, along with Mikey. That's it, really. I've got nothing funny or insightful or self-promoting to say about any of this. I just require some TMDK bounce every now and then and there's only a slim chance of my getting the chance to toss Shane around in person, so the GIFs seemed like a good-enough alternative. That's pretty much the long and short of it. (I hope you like the title. It's supposed to be funny.)
P.S. My apologies to Mikey Nicholls for totally leaving him out of this post. He contributes A LOT to the match at the 13:30 mark, really. (Next time, mate!)
