Man fuck that Tanahashi/Okada from WK. Maybe I expected way too much going in but the match just didn't live up to expectations. I couldn't get into it at all. I started off great then it quickly just turned into a steaming pile of shit. The limb work was nothing but filler. There was no long-term consequences for either guy's limb work and I know this may seem like rare complaint, but the match was just too back and forth my taste.
Maybe I was expecting Tanahashi/Suzuki level of greatness going in but this match just isn't good imo. I mean it has its moments, in particularly Okada awesomeness at selling but for every great Okada selling moment or just working like a boss, we had Tanahashi not giving a fuck and flying over ropes 20 minutes into the match as if nothing ever happened.
