Had a few botches but they didn't take anything away from the story or the overall action. First time seeing Hino and he seemed really good. Ibushi is just a great underdog. Probably around the **** mark. Probably didn't help that I'm really fucking tired right now.
I fully agree with this. I honestly do not see the hype for Ibushi/Omega nor do I see the hype for Hino/Ibushi.
I honestly loved the story they were portraying (a great reworking of the David Vs Goliath tale) but the manner in which Hino was trying to portray himself as wrestling's own Mumakil felt odd. Where Seabs sees great selling in portraying him as unstoppable yet still "humanlike" I see questionable selling flaws.
The crowd popped when Ibushi did the unthinkable and powerbombed Hino. It was quickly killed when Hino rolled out barely after a one-count. Sure, Hino is meant to have a large "HP" but at least have him be stunned or, at the very least, taken aback that Ibushi did that to him. Sell some annoyance, please? Thanks.
Botchy, questionable and odd in it's flow. Not for me.
