Seabs also had this to say about the match when I posted it in the Puro thread:

I agree a lot with Seabs (except for the 2 falls bit). I was actually surprised when I saw this on Puroresu Spirit's recommended list, tbh. Like I said in the other thread, I was torn watching in how to call it.
I'm not sure if I'd ever go that
high for it, but I suppose it might get better with a second viewing. Sanada's pretty solid, though, and Suwama is Suwama. It shouldn't be mediocre, and it wasn't. Just I'm not sure how much of a MotYC it could be.
Glad you liked the hell out of it, though.
