Hirooki Goto vs Michael Elgin
New Japan Cup 2016 Semi-Finals
New Aomori Prefectural Sports Park Maeda Arena, Aomori, Japan
(reviewed 05/26/2016) I’m not the biggest fan of either of these men (despite liking Goto more than your average puro smark, I think), but this should be some serviceable strikes and slams wrasslin’. That’s mostly what we get here, absolutely nothing new or surprising or interesting. If you’ve ever seen a match between these two or have a mental image of what a match between these two would be like, it’s basically that. Face Goto is boring as a character but fine as a wrestler, Elgin is boring as a character period but fine as a wrestler depending on his opponent, and they just hit each other a bunch. Watch it if you’re into either of these guys.
