Kenny Omega vs SANADA
G1 Climax Block B Match
Yokohama Bunka Gymnasium, Yokohama, Japan
(reviewed 08/09/2017) Sort of a bad match, or probably more accurately, an underwhelming and underperforming match. Omega is real bad here with his “local improv guy doing his best to play a Gundam villain” act and SANADA sort of mirrors it in a weird way, being more expressive and emotive than usual and ends up either being totally over-the-top or just pretty ok. The action itself is mostly ok, your usual spots that these two dance their way through, though there are weird botches and irregularities. On some level, this is the exact sort of match that I expected between these two, but it’s also way spottier than I’d have guessed, surprisingly enough. I dunno. Weird match, one that I’m no fan of, clearly. Maybe you’d like it.
