aaeo_ Posted September 29, 2018 Report Share Posted September 29, 2018 Pretty good match, they do wacky shit from the beginning like Ibushi driving Sekimoto off the ramp on a dolly, somehow dollies also played a part of another match they had in Korakuen Hall, so I guess that counts as a callback. It's less of a demolition than the other Strong BJ matches in DDT, and weirdly I like it less. Wrestling genius Sasaki meshes with Sekimoto and Okabayashi strangely well, beyond just getting beat like other DDT "juniors". They base pretty well for him and he can grapple a bit with them. Ibushi brings the violence with stiff strikes, but it's a bit disjointed in general. There's a lot great moments in that finishing stretch, which starts with Strong BJ putting on the double torture rack, but the timing is somehow slightly off. Things like Sasaki getting a big reaction and then Ibushi taking just a bit too long to climb the ropes and do his dive for the final pin. Either way, it's a good ending to the Strong BJ title run.
