Nakajima vs Ishimori
I always say this about Nakajima, but I'll say it again here, he knows how to do a limb workover really well, and then use it to constantly gain the advantage later in the match. He did it here amazingly well, but ishimori's selling was quite bad throughout which took away from the great job Nakajima was doing. He sometimes would hold his leg for a second, but then was running around like a crazy person and hitting all his offense which pretty much all invovled using his knees or feet, hitting all his usual stuff like kicks, knees, lungblowers, dropkicks etc which annoyed me a bit. But that's the negative stuff out the way. Nakajima was awesome here, like I said working over the leg and then when Ishimori made his comebacks he would always go back to the leg to get the advantage back. The sequence leading to the finsih was awesome stuff and the nearfall off the 450 was great. So there was a few things that nagged me mostly to do with Ishimoris selling, but the good stuff far outweighed the bad, a lot like Nakajima/Marvin from last year, but I thought this was better. ****
Nakajima is so good imo, he's easily my favourite Junior in Japan. To me, he's like if some scientist took Davey Richards and extracted all the shit and injected some wrestling logic into his brain. If you put him in the ring with someone who can sell (like SHINGO) you will pretty much be guaranteed a MOTYC.
