Kenta Kobashi & Go Shiozaki vs Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima
Months after their classic chopfest, Sasaki and Kobashi cross paths once again. This time, each of them has brought a younger guy to team with them. The match starts off with the Go & Nakajima starting off, creating an epic fast pace sequence before both guys tag in the legends. Kobashi and Sasaki have a slow test of strength. After that, each legend has a go at making the younger guy their bitch. Sasaki and Kobashi do a rehash of their chop battle, but don't go into overkill mode. Then poor old Go Shiozaki gets the crap beat out of him and this creates a build-up for a hot tag. It feels very Americanized with Kobashi clapping his heart out to encourage Shiozaki to keep on going (See what I did there?). It's a tad bizarre to see this in puro, but it works really well. Kobashi gets the tag and.... Well, I'm not going to spoil the rest. You'll see one of the hottest crowds I've seen at a NOAH show and a sick ass ending sequence. One of the best tag matches I've ever seen.
