[2017-05-05-GUTS World-Let's Go Everyone!] Dick Togo vs Yuko Miyamoto


Recommended Posts

You can't ask for a much better opener than this. Fast-paced and concise with a well-established story and terrific selling from Togo. Miyamoto is one of the most underpraised wrestlers today and he unfortunately gets overshadowed by his tag partner Kodaka but he's definitely the more versatile of the two. He's silky smooth and focused on the mat or with his counters and transitions. He works the leg here and Togo really does a lot to add depth to a simple story, like the buckling on the suplex escape or injuring himself on the Pedigree. One of the things that Togo does so well is convey a sense of struggle when he's in a submission hold. He's trying to find a counter or fight his way out instead of just laying there and absorbing the punishment. The way he takes that Fire Thunder Driver was gnarly and I loved how him using the knees to block the moonsault press felt like a real sacrifice. I'll take a simple story with great care for small details, rather than something so ridiculously convoluted that it takes you out of the match entirely.
