I didn't think it was bad either, but it was slow. The match was Mutoh targeting Tana's knees to take away his speed advantage, and then it was Tanahashi targeting Mutoh's knees because they are in such bad condition its an obvious target.
So with both men selling the leg work, and moving slower accordingly until the finishing stretch, you have a slow ass match, but with a nice little 'passing of the torch' ending.
And if this years main event in Nakamura and Takayama doesn't include multiple cringe-inducing strikes, I'll be disappointed.
