[2002-02-16-NJPW] Kensuke Sasaki vs Manabu Nakanishi


Recommended Posts

As far as I'm concerned, it wasn't the Inokism/MMA influence stuff that was killing NJPW at the time, it was the fact that the regular wrestling was largely dull and moronic. The sprint opening and subsequent matwork of this was fine, but they soon went to their bread and butter: brainlessly hitting lariats and throwing out bombs. No transitions in sight, just take a move, then hit one of your own, repeat until finish. This really needed MMA gloves or a Murakami run in.
