[1998-10-24-NJPW] Shinjiro Otani & Tatsuhito Takaiwa vs Koji Kanemoto & Kendo Ka Shin

Recommended Posts

TV edit of the match, which looks to be about 9 minutes of 19:24. Kashin does an odd looking rolling cradle. Otani and Kanemoto make a great tag team, but they sure go after each other full bore when they are on opposite sides. Kashin is actually good here in ways he normally isn't, busting out a rolling cradle and even reversing Takaiwa's double powerbomb into a cross armbreaker. While clipped juniors matches usually make me long for the complete version, that's not the case here. This was fun, but doesn't seem like it would be anything awesome in full. I think we got the best of the match and this was on the indieriffic side anyway.

I really hate the clip style this carries. Otani and Kanemoto should be teamed up IMO as they disdain and attitude works better together than doing mirror spots against each other. Kashin has actually looked pretty impressive in the snippets we have seen in 98 which is quite a surprise.

Fun action here and I dig the contrasts in styles and how each wrestler has to change their approach depending on whom they're in the ring with. This was probably all the best stuff in the match. Everyone looked pretty good but no one looked great.
