[2009-04-09-FUTEN] Daisuke Ikeda & Takeshi Ono vs Manabu Suruga & Takahiro Oba

Recommended Posts

Just a totally spectacular match. Ono and Ikeda are an amazing heel tag team, like a super violent Anderson brothers as they spend much of the match isolating each guy and murdering them. Ikeda is so great at stopping people from making saves, when Ono is torturing Oba, Ikeda and Suruga(Hara) have this mini Greco pummeling brawl while Hara tries desperately for a save. The finish run with Ikeda and Suruga is as great as any Ikeda v. Ishikawa struggle. They have this spectacular finishing punch section, which combines a violent BattlArts punch exchange with a almost Lawler v. Mantel fatigue war. I don’t remember seeing Oba before, and he had some super goofy shit, but in some way it worked well. He kind of kept throwing himself at the heels in weird way, including smashing Ikeda in the face with his taint. And don’t forget about fuckin Ono who was as huge a cunt as he was ten years ago. He may have been the best guy in the match, stomping, kicking and twisting guys in pretzels. I am going to want to watch it again, but it feels on first watch like the 2009 MOTY.

I thought this had it's moments. Oba's comedy stuff was too over the top for me. Ono was great as a dick heel. Seeing Ikeda in the Ishikawa role was weird but it worked. Not as well for me, but it did work. And I got the feeling that Suruga was a protégé of Ikeda and the point of the match was to put him and to a lesser extent Oba over. Ikeda wrestlng almost face makes this a little odd as far as structure. Towards the end, Ikeda really gives Suruga a lot, but comes up with the right move at the right time for a victory.
