[2018-11-08-NOAH-Global League] Kenoh vs Naomichi Marufuji


Recommended Posts

Maybe it didn't live up to the hype that I saw this match being built up for, but certainly a great match that elevated Kenoh to a serious GHC contender again. Marufuji's offense did nothing for me in this match to say the least. He's still praised as one of the best in the world, but nothing about his offense except doing cool sequences is exciting. Kenoh on the other hand was awesome here as his selling and intensity were really great and pretty much made the match. Not to mention that flipping diving stomp looked especially brutal, ****1/4.

Great match. A match that has been building and building for months finally climaxes. Kenoh getting exactly what he wanted, a match with Marufuji but it didn’t go exactly as he thought he would. Nakajima was on top of his game here hitting some of his hardest chops and knee strikes. Being the aggressive and controlling Kenoh, even acting heelish at times, getting the crowd behind Kenoh. Marufuji’s attacks on the neck were superb and Kenoh’s selling was fantastic. Kept on holding the neck, flinching in pain when ever he moved it. Great stuff. His comebacks were tremendous too, sent the crowd into a frenzy. There is one sequence in the match which was tremendous; mind blowing. ****1/4
