[2000-09-15-NOAH-Exceeding Our Dreams] Mitsuharu Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa vs Akira Taue & Masao Inoue


Recommended Posts

A good match but below the Kobashi and Akiyama affair and there is much more heat on that feud right now as the #1 main thing in NOAH. Misawa and Taue felt pretty motivated here and Ogawa added some nice touches but Inoue is a slog and not compelling underneath so that hurt the offense that Misawa/Ogawa threw his way. He also projected much less credibility than even Rikio in the previous six man. Finishing run doesn’t have much drama and Ogawa puts Inoue away. A ho hum tag match much like the January 2nd pair of matches from All Japan that we saw. This confirms that Misawa can still go in the big moments but for 2000 only, Kobashi and Akiyama have passed him on a night to night basis. **3/4

This was just so bland in comparison to the Kobashi and Akiyama six-man. Ogawa is always good for fun touches, and here he harassed Inoue repeatedly. Outside of some of those fun flourishes, this felt kind of autopilot to me. With these guys even autopilot is pretty good but there just was not a hook here to sink into. As far as status quo tags though, this was fine stuff.
