[2000-05-31-AJPW] Makoto Hashi vs Kenta Kobayashi

Recommended Posts

KENTA is skinny as can be here. A perfectly good match between two rookies that were given over 10 minutes. Kenta shows some fire but I thought Hashi had to carry the heavy lifting and he seemed to be more advanced at this stage. That is exemplified in the finish where he wins. Glad we get a quick glimpse of Kenta in AJ right before the big split. **3/4

This was pretty good. I liked the heft that Hashi throws into shoulder tackles and he throws a really nice body slam. Kenta looked green and very skinny but perfectly competent as they mostly traded basic holds for awhile. Kenta works in a really nice lightning fast armdrag on Hashi at one point. This felt grounded but more fleshed out and able to breathe than I would have expected. Interesting to get a glimpse of where they were at this point.

 

**1/2
