[2016-02-11-NJPW-New Beginning in Osaka] Katsuyori Shibata vs Tomohiro Ishii

Recommended Posts

Another match better than the previous one at the Tokyo Dome. This match actually focuses on selling and psychology as apposed to the spectacle (a great spectacle none the less) of two guys taking turns hitting each other hard. I had my worries this would just be a repeat of the Tokyo Dome match when they let each other hit suplexes on each other, but they proved me wrong, even if that spot did bug me a lot. A total war that's more than a spectacle. ★★★¾

Not as cringe-inducing as the 1/4 match, which may be a good thing, but still the same high thresholds of pain tolerance and friendly violence. This felt a little more complete to me. The suplex spot is silly but works in this kind of macho showoff match. Another fun 'modern strong style' parody match.
