Zack Sabre Jr vs YOSHI-HASHI
G1 Climax Block A Match
Machida Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan
(reviewed 07/23/2017) Not much to say, but an enjoyable bout here. Zack toys with Tacos and bends him in all sorts of fun ways before finally putting him away with an Octopus Stretch. After a weird Naito match that left me wondering if I even still liked him anymore, YOSHI-HASHI delivers a performance right down the middle here, which is better than a bad one, strictly speaking. Zack, on the other hand, continues his streak of above-average performances, though this is the least of his three in the tournament so far. It’s not great but that’s totally fine, being that this is only the first tournament match on this card and it’s with YOSHI-HASHI. Which sort of sums up the whole match, I guess; it’s fine for what it is.
