[2018-03-18-NJPW-New Japan Cup 2018] SANADA vs Zack Sabre Jr


Recommended Posts

What a goddamn MARVELOUS match. The most consistent wrestler in the world continues his streak of terrific performances in his JUST TAP OUT New Japan Cup tour & SANADA delivers the match of his career so far. The storytelling was top freaking notch - you got SANADA actually owning Zack in the early stages w/ the wrist control. Zack gets more & more frustrated as SANADA continues showing that he is no slouch when it comes to ZSJ's game; eventually though Zack finds a way & starts targeting that arm of SANADA in brutal, nasty, classic Zack Sabre Jr. fashion. SANADA sells it super well. The feel of urgency & physicality is off the charts at that point, SANADA just like that becomes the underdog & tries to fight off Zack's nasty work over him, but in the end, just like Ibushi & Naito, he just TAPPED OUT. ****1/2

I thought this was OK at best and rather heatless for the most part. I wouldn't say SANADA's selling was particularly out of this world great or anything and the botched three count on the tiger suplex was really bad. Skippable, unless you're a massive ZSJ fan.
