Kenny Omega Vs. Hiroshi Yamato - AJPW Junior Heavyweight Title Match

Finally got around to watching this. While Omega's heel disrespect feels forced in contrast to the subtler stuff from the early 90's I've been watching lately, he's godly compared to most of his contemporaries today. Even messing around with his water bottle was amusing. He leads Yamato into the best one-sided match I've seen since Ricochet Vs. Castagnoli. Like that one from PWG, this excels based on pacing and having the aggressor diligently stick to varied offense. Yamato has a great fiery comeback, but as soon as that doesn't pay off it's obvious that he's screwed. It's largely Yamato doing a great job bumping for Omega's crazy offense. The finishing stretch makes Omega look like a world-killer. He's got so much high-end offense that even with Yamato's guts, Yamato can't last. My MOTY so far. Just a super-fun bout.
