I more or less agree, having said that i thought it was slightly better than ***1/2 maybe pushing **** simply because it was very well put together and it did get me somewhat excited for the finish without excessive use of finishers and insane near falls, which is sort of rare for big NJPW main events. Having said this when watching the show (before hearing anything about it) I assumed it would be the Okada/ Anderson match getting the buzz, I thought that was really good, Okada has been on such a roll through 2012, his singles matches are always fantastic and he has delivered when he has had to step up on the big stage (the couple of matches with tanahashi, the matches with Anderson (This and the G1 final) and the IWGP title match with Naito were all ****+ in my opinion)
