[1992-07-14-WAR] Ashura Hara vs Takashi Ishikawa

Recommended Posts

Slow paced match, but I'd say there's enough of two tubby guys cracking eachother hard to keep this entertaining. The early exchanges here are pretty fun as obviously these two work really snug, and Ishikawa also hits the worlds greatest plancha early on. There were also some nasty suplex bumps from these big guys. The submission stuff was filler, but it lead to a transition. Both guys would use these nasty short kicks, very pro wrestling style, looks hurty and nobody really does those anymore. By the end this gets pretty epic with Ashura Hara selling the beating he took huge. He would hit a suplex, but be unable to continue because he was too beaten up. So he would just rely on Ishikawa coming too close and then brutally clock him with lariats and headbutts. Obviously there are lots of great lariats in this bout. Hara launching himself around ruled including just flying out of the ring, totally unexpected and looked great. This largely worked because it was built around Ishikawa being really great at brutalizing someone and Hara being really great at putting over a beating. Credible finish. This kind of „bloated guys stiffing eachother“ has become en vogue again recently with the BJW roidheads and WALTER so forth but I'd say this was better than 99% of those matches.
