I don't like Akiyama very much but after the above match I figured to give Kobashi vs Akiyama from 7/10/04 a chance and I was just bored to tears. Maybe it was a good match and maybe it deserves 5* but it reminded me why I dislike Akiyama.
Kobashi/Akiyama (7/10/2004) is the MOTD. Damn, boy... Akiyama is such a badass motherfucker, he can still outperform the shit out of 99% of Puro guys, EASILY. I just looove his ultra serious style and that "This is gonna hurt you more than me!"
Bah Gawd, Akiyama/SUWAMA rematch and Akiyama/Sekimoto for the Triple Crown simply NEED TO happen. This motherfucker is one of few guys you can rely on, in terms of having epic main events.
