Richeyedwards Posted February 9, 2019 Report Share Posted February 9, 2019 This was for Kaito's GHC Heavyweight Title This match went 29 minutes but on the broadcast version Samurai TV cut it down to a shade over 22 and this did good for the match. I am not sure what they cut out but the result was 22 minutes of a fast paced bombfest with both guys going for the win from the off. The pace the two wrestled at you would think they could have been going 10 minutes not 30. Kaito is still only 22 and a good way from the finished article, in particular when it comes to working a control segment but his facial expressions and selling really draw me into his matches. Luckily for him his three title matches in this reign have all been against bigger guys who like to dominate with nasty stiff offence that Katio takes extremely well. By sticking to this formula they are managing to have some good and fresh feeling main events, It will be interesting to see what happens with his next challenger being Marufuji, I expect a slower match built around Maru dominating again but with more holds and less power offence I am not sure it will be as good but could still work. ****1/4 on a level with the Kenoh title defense from January.
