Minoru Suzuki vs Toru Yano – NJPW G1 Climax 27 Day 18

Minoru Suzuki vs Toru Yano

G1 Climax Block B Match


Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo, Japan

(reviewed live) Big ass grin spread across my face when I realized that this match was coming up next. They do their usual thing here, but it’s been a few years since I saw it last and it’s great to see it again. Yano digs deep into his bag of tricks for anything that will help him survive. Suzuki ain’t having any of it and manages to turn some of Yano’s tricks back against him. The ref gets in on the action and is made to pay for it. Taichi interferes a bunch but is bested by a button-up-and-slacks-wearing Rocky “Office Guy” Romero. Eventually Yano is able to tape Suzuki’s arms against his torso and low blows him before rolling him up for the finish. Lovely stuff. Tons of fun, tons of character, tons of everything you could ever ask for.
