I guess Makabe looked too dominant for me to really enjoy it. shibata never got anything going, and the match ended really suddenly. Honestly, the match ended before it looked like Shibata had any chance to win. I don't even remember a point where it seemed like Shibata even ALMOST won. Sure, they brawled, but it was really empty and void of all the heat from the tag matches.

Shibata dominated most of the match! I love, love, loved Makabe's playing possum on the PK when he just fell over, only to grab the kick for the short lariat. Again, the "let's finish this inside" floor spot ruled. Good counters, pacing and transitions. A perfectly good under 10 minute match. Rewatch it?

I also really liked Makabe vs Shibata. Shibata gave him the works (but thankfully didn't give him a PK kick), and Makabe's selling was on point. I agree with MF83, that was totally the best case scenario.

I liked the main more than most, though yeah, it was slightly worse than the other two matches. The end though... I'll continue to trust NJPW's booking, but I can't say I'm happy about it.


But to me, Sakuraba vs Nakamura was the best match, though props to Low Ki for wrestling in a three piece, lol.

I liked Okada and Tanahashi (****1/4) better than Shinskay and Sakuraba (****). The one moment after the rolling around though when Sakuraba started slapping the shit out of Shinskay was a game changer though and gave a whole new flavor to the match.

Yeah, I enjoyed Nakamura vs Sakuraba the most, although it wasn't that much better than the main event. It brought me back to good ol' days of New Japan being the "King of Sports".

Makabe/Shibata was fun but not MOTYC worthy. I'm fine with that though, not every match has to be an epic.

Yeah, I just did and I feel the same. When I mean Toki Dominited, I mean about the last several minutes. Shibata had early control, but at the end, he never really looked like he had a chance to win. As I result, the finish was kinda out of nowhere. It seemed like Shibata hadn't even gotten warmed up, and you never really thought Makabe was in serious trouble.

Makabe just really bores me right now. It was discussed many pages back, but I just can't get into the way he structures matches, and a one-sided finishing stretch is just one example.
