At first I didn't like the armwork. Then came the awesome double elbow pad spot followed by a "botched" pose and I thought they might turn it around. They didn't. Okada's arm hurts. Then it's fine. Then it hurts again. Then it's fine and then it hurts again and then it heals but then it starts hurting again and then it magically heals and by the end it was just a big clusterfuck. That's not good selling. I liked their ideas, but the way they realised them was not satisfying. I'd give it, like, ***3/4, so I don't think it was a bad match, I just couldn't get into the finishing stretch because of bad selling that made the armwork pointless. I just hope they give up on the obligatory limbwork formula because this match would've been SO much better without it.
