[2009-03-14-AJPW-Pro Wrestling Love in Ryogoku Vol. 7] Minoru Suzuki & Taiyo Kea vs Suwama & Shuji Kondo

Recommended Posts

One thing I've learned from scouring 2000s puro is that Minoru Suzuki consistently delivers the goods in tag matches. Suzuki and Kea come in with a clear game plan: neutralize the heavy hitter Suwama and isolate the junior Kondo. The opening minutes are centered around Suzuki goading Suwama into blowing his stack, resulting in him eating a spike piledriver on the floor. When Suwama is the legal man, Suzuki and Kea go crazy with blind tags, even catching him off-guard with a fake blind tag. Suwama and Kondo string together a nice run of offense near the end, but Suwama's exuberance once again leads to him being taken out and Kondo is overwhelmed by the numbers game. Lots of hard-hitting action as well as quite a few nifty details that aren't easily picked up on initial viewing, making rewatching a rewarding experience. One of the few highlights of the Pro Wrestling Love era.
