aaeo_ Posted October 18, 2018 Report Share Posted October 18, 2018 The opening of this is awkward. It's just standard opening matwork, but technical wrestling isn't either's strength. Match gets better after Takeshita hits Endo on a break but weirldy, it is Endo who starts dominating the match afterwards. That seems like stalling because eventually Takeshita starts working Endo's arm. Takeshita has a neat transition into a kimura and Endo's selling is good as per usual. The match is better when Takeshita is in control, but they go back-and-forth. One of the best moments is Takeshita no-selling Endo's chops in a strike exchange and Endo building up to a comeback before getting cut off by a lariat. I think it's a disappointing match, the bright spots are Endo's fire and the finishing stretch, which is about as good as you'd expect. The post-match turn is damn good. Endo joins Daisuke Sasaki and Damnation. Sasaki also brawled with Dick Togo after Togo's match earlier in this show. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
