Cutting a Shoot Promo To Get Over

I just rewatched Sasaki vs Kobashi for the first time since watching it originally and I have to say that it has to be right up there with the most overrated matches of all time.
Why the fuck is Kobashi doing topes and lucha arm drags?
Why the hell is Sasaki busting out top-rope frankensteiners?
The chop fest just got annoying after the first 30 seconds, and at about the 2 minute mark I felt like stopping watching. By the 5 minute mark I felt a tear come out.
This was just a huge spotfest. I did however enjoy the Northern Lights Bomb on the outside spot, and Kobashi ate it like a hero, however with everything else that went on around it, it didn't feel as important as it should have.
The main thing that this match proved to me is how much better Kawada is than Kobashi, considering the 2000 match between Kawada and Sasaki when Sasaki was pretty shitty at the time but Kawada got a classic out of him.
It also made me realise that Kobashi may just be really overrated.
