[2012-01-04-NJPW-Wrestle Kingdom] Kazuchika Okada vs YOSHI-HASHI


Recommended Posts

The homecoming and debut of The Rainmaker gimmick for Okada. This is around 5 minutes total. His look is something else - his face especially in comparison to today. This is very cookie-cutter, with no heat, but I'll tell you what - the guy could hit a dropkick, including a big seated dropkick off the top rope. Rainmaker pose draws crickets and its an awful clothesline this time out anyway.

Life comes at your fast. Okada trots out with his robe, his current theme and a new Rainmaker gimmick. The crowd responds by yawning and Okada's face looked huge and bloated here. I was shocked at how much offense YOSHI-HASHI got in this five minute affair and again the crowd couldn't care less about anything going on. The optics were so bad for this to be a debut because things like Okada's pose look completely goofy and tone deaf when received by no reaction. This match ends in what has to be the worst Rainmaker I have ever seen that had close to zero impact. Gedo had an idea in mind for Okada and it is amazing he didn't waft on it at all after this debut. *1/2
