[2018-05-27-DDT] Konosuke Takeshita vs Antonio Honda


Recommended Posts

Big Match Honda strikes again. Although there's far less big moves and athletic spots here than on the average Takeshita main event bout, to me this might be the best singles match he's had. A huge chunk of this is Takeshita in control, which is good. Takeshita really doesn't hold back at all, and Honda is a great face in peril. Honda's comeback is started by a shockingly emotional Gongitsune story. Takeshita falls out of the ring after the eyepoke and Honda launches into his still shockingly good tope suicida. Honda can't do some of the stuff he tries afterwards but seeing him go for a hurricanrana and then fuck it up and end up pulling off a cradle has its charm. To his credit, Takeshita helps keep the match together during that stretch, improvising during the couple moments when Honda is about to botch something. At the end, Honda throws his punches and they both do the bionic elbow. Of course, Takeshita wins.
