[2010-01-31-NJPW] Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada


Recommended Posts

This is Okada's last match before being sent off to TNA. He is still a young lion, still dressed in plain black trunks and coming down to the ring to awful theme music.


They start of with some slowish matwork, which Tana gets the better off. Tanahashi is in control for the majority of the match as one can expect, but Okada manages to sneak in a few big moves in. He shows a lot of fire and potential in these brief comebacks. One spot I love is Okada doing Tanahashi's somersault senton spot, not something you would expect a young lion to do.


Tanahashi finally puts Okada away with the High Fly Flow. Looking at the rest of this card, this show looked to be televised house show which allowed Tanahashi to show a lot of arse for Okada. Okada does manage to get a few nearfalls on the Ace.


Not a classic by any means, but very interesting to see. Just two years later, Okada would be one of the hottest things in pro wrestling.
