[2018-07-21-NJPW-G1 Climax 28] Juice Robinson vs Tetsuya Naito


Recommended Posts

More than one year since their first singles match, and man did they do this one even better. Juice of early 2017 and Juice in mid-2018 are worlds away in talent and star power. Naito was like a shark smelling blood in this match as he instinctivley attacked Juice's injured hand quickly into the match. The real meat of the match though was Juice pulling out all the stops. I'm surprised Juice actually managed to get cheers over Naito at points. I won't say these guys didn't have chemistry the first time they faced off, but they for sure showed it this time around, ****1/2.

Thought this was absolutely fantastic. The hand work to open with Naito able to redirect all his offense towards it made for some great drama. Thought Juice's hand selling was absolutely on point for when it was necessary although it does fade into the background as the match continues. But that's not too bad of a problem because that finishing stretch is hot, hot, hot. Incredibly exciting and an excellent match.
