GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship: Kotaro Suzuki (c) vs. Eddie Edwards ****1/4 - ****1/2 (Until I settle on a final rating, I guess I'll go with the somewhat convoluted ****2/5).
Head and shoulders above every other match this year imo. A star making performance from Edwards (in my eyes at least). I loved pretty much everything about this -- from the perfectly executed + paced high spots, innovative counters and crowd heat, this will be tough to beat.
Can't say enough good things about this one. Surprised the hell out of me when I thought I would enjoy
Hidaka/Sekimoto and KENTA/Takayama a lot more (both of which I rated ***3/4).
Now onto Golden Lovers/Apollo 55 and I will be caught up this year.
