I thought this match was a lot of fun. All three of the standout talents deliver, but this had a career performance from Jun Izumida trying to hang with Takayama and Albright. He's a big meaty lad with a heart of gold and a belly full of fire. At first he's clearly outmatched, but when he's able to block multiple belly to belly throws from Takayama, the crowd gets behind him and  this pisses Takayama right off. It's impressive  how massive Takayama was able to make himself through his posturing and body language. I was also impressed with his selling, it's very similar to how Kawada would sell a big strike. My only complaint about this is that the finish comes out of nowhere and they really did limit the Taue/Takyama interactions, which is a match I'm very interested in seeing.
