Pro Wrestling ZERO1 "ZERO1_ELEVEN~11th Anniversary Show", 3/2/2012 [Fri] @ Korakuen Hall in Tokyo
(-) Special Tag Match ~ ZERO1 vs. DIAMOND RING: Shinjiro Otani & Daichi Hashimoto vs. Kensuke Sasaki & Katsuhiko Nakajima
Okada winning the IWGP Title sucks imo. Tana's reign still had legs and was a success. Okada doesn't look ready to be on that level yet and the fans don't seem to have taken to him at that level either. Guessing it'll only be a shortish reign though. The decision was made before WK btw, nothing to do with the new owners. Jr. belts changing hands again just shows how stale that division is and it doesn't help that Devitt and Taguchi aren't on their best form right now either. They really need for Liger to start working bigger junior matches again to freshen it up or give some CMLL guys title shots. Davey's the next challenger for Devitt's belt too. Goto faces Takahashi for his belt and Takayama/Archer challenge Tenzan/Kojima.
Full Anniversary card.
