[2018-08-18-AJPW-Summer Explosion] Shun Skywalker & Masaaki Mochizuki vs Atsushi Aoki & Hikaru Sato


Recommended Posts

This was the third match for both teams in the jr tag league. The dragon gate team had lost both matches coming in and Aoki and Sato have won both their matches and won the tourney in both 2015 and 2016. Aoki is also the jr champ so the DG team had a lot against them in this match.

The best interactions in this match was between Mochi and Sato when they started it was just a barrage of palm strikes and kicks. There was a great later sequence between the two where Sato had Mochi in an armbar which he reversed into an ankle lock into a succession of nasty head kicks by Mochi. Shun has improved over the last few years he is one of the smoothest high flyers in the world, everything is hit beautifully and seamlessly, he still has issues when it comes to what he is doing between his big spots. His matches are all built around them but he picks his spots well and when in a tag match where Mochi can do much of the heavy lifting (even at 48) he is not exposed.

This was a really enjoyable jr tag match with a really hot final few minutes and at less than 15 mins the time flew bye, well worth the watch ***3/4.
