Pretty sure nobody complained about having chain wrestling at the start of a match. More the way in which it was obviously slowed down to go a long time and didn't achieve anything in the long run.

People don't complain about chain wrestling for being chain wrestling. People complain about chain wrestling being used for an opening secuence just because "sound logic" and for chain wrestling secuences that lead to nothing in the later portions of a match meaning nothing in the end

****1/4
Sakuraba vs. Nakamura

What a fantastic match; I always love seeing Nakamura in that rare position where he can be out-grappled by his opponent, and Old Man Sakuraba presenting a quiet yet dangerous threat was well done and absolutely great.

****
Nagata vs. Suzuki

It's these two beating the piss out of each other; you know what you are getting.

I'm shocked people are complaining about the first half of Okada/Tanahashi. That was the half where Tanahashi actually sold properly.

The problematic half is the one that Tanahashi no-sells so much that Okada never even feels like he could possibly win.

@Bubz & asdf0501

Well sorry, you must hate every Misawa-Kobashi singles match ever then cause it was way worse there. For a random example, the Cena-Punk matches have the same "problem". They were fighting for control. It's always been a part of "epicly" structured puroresu matches and it isn't going away. Complaining about something so basic is laughable.

I seriously call bullshit on people giving Tana/Okada ANYTHING less than ****. It was a beautiful match, it was what WWF style used to be, spectacle style over everything else. The best Dome main event in fucking years.

I completely agree, wrestling for control. The thing is in Okada/Tanahashi, they lost me with it within the first few minutes. It's purely a personal thing, I would have rather that portion went shorter, and I wasn't 'in to it'. Put it down to the mood I was in after just watching Nakamura/Sakuraba or just in general. I'll re-watch it within the next few days because even as I was watching it I thought 'man, this'll need a re-watch'.

Yeah, but some people dont like old WWF style and REALLY dont like everything else suffering just for spectacle style. I can't say I'm a huge fan of either of those things.

I'd love to call bullshit on anyone saying it was better than the DOMINION match, but to each their own. I still give it ****1/4 but I can see enough problems with it to make some give it less than four. I could even see a case for this being the weakest of their three matches, although I certainly wouldn't agree with that, either.
