[2016-09-17-NJPW] Katsuyori Shibata vs Bobby Fish

Recommended Posts

Big portions of this match were built around Bobby Fish dominating and working over Shibata's neck and back, I remember there was a story circulating weeks before this match that Shibata has a neck injury and decided to work through it, and even if that was true the way they structued this match didn't really take advantage of it, Shibata took a bunch of bumps for Fish who was almost Brock Lesnar working a house show-like in how meaningless and mundane he made them. There were some quality exchanges once they moved past that, and you can always count for Shibata for some nice violence, but this felt like a missed opportunity. Also Fish's vocal selling sounded childish and annoying. **3/4
