Man fuck that Tanahashi/Okada from WK. Maybe I expected way too much going in but the match just didn't live up to expectations. I couldn't get into it at all. I started off great then it quickly just turned into a steaming pile of shit. The limb work was nothing but filler. There was no long-term consequences for either guy's limb work and I know this may seem like rare complaint, but the match was just too back and forth my taste.

Maybe I was expecting Tanahashi/Suzuki level of greatness going in but this match just isn't good imo. I mean it has its moments, in particularly Okada awesomeness at selling but for every great Okada selling moment or just working like a boss, we had Tanahashi not giving a fuck and flying over ropes 20 minutes into the match as if nothing ever happened.

Hmmmm.... didn't think Otani & Tanaka vs Sekimoto & Raideen was close to that level. The crowd was tepid & Raideen was piss poor, selling nothing.

I didn't dislike the match as much as you, but I am glad other people are seeing my complaints.

Don't see the negatives to Tanahashi vs Okada at all. It's such a polarizing match. It's interesting to say the least.

I wasn't too high on it either. The first portion of the match is filled with uninteresting matwork and forgettable strike exchanges. The match takes a while to get going and it's basically the Otani show. The Tanaka/Sekimoto interactions were fun but felt more for the live crowd and I can't say it added much to the match. Decent match overall.

NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 7

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kazushi Sakuraba (IWGP Intercontinental Title) ****¼
Loved every bit of this. Tremendous mat-work as expected, stiff as hell and a hot crowd to boot.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada (IWGP Title) ****
Amazingly this was the first time I have ever seen Okada wrestle (due to being out of the loop with Puro the last year) and bloody hell, he was fucking great. Everything he did was fantastic especially his work on Tanahashi's neck...which if sold better would have lead to me going higher. Great match no doubt but damn it, I was almost shouting at my TV for Tanahashi to sell his neck more.

2013 Pequeno Reyes del Aire-CMLL 1/6/13****1/4. People were raving about the Titan/Polvora match. I thought this was better. Lots of great flying by the minis.
