[2000-07-13-WAR] Masaaki Mochizuki vs Tomohiro Ishii


Recommended Posts

Two young guys going out there and having a killer match. The strikes here were insane with loud thuds and snaps to them with no thigh slapping and other shortcuts. Mochizuki in particular is such a bruiser. Ishii is someone with a ton of hype in current day and he still had some of the same stuff down in this time as he is beloved for today. I can't wait to track him throughout the 2000's. Mochi seems to have the match in hand for the most part of the match and Ishii works good at getting his spots in to create intrigue. Mochi is able to put him away. Humorous moment post match as Mochi cuts a promo and spikes the microphone and it bounces right into Ishii's hands. I say if you like either of these guys now, this is a piece of history in their career that certainly holds up. ***3/4 (7.6)

Mochizuki was really killing Ishii with those kicks and this tells a fine story with Mochizuki really effectively dominating and controlling Ishii for an extended amount of time leading to a very rewarding comeback when Ishii fires off a german suplex. Both guys strikes were incredible and Ishii specifically inhabits the area of looking strong while portraying a sensible vulnerability. This was good stuff.
