Over Generation (Eita, Gamma, & Takehiro Yamamura) vs MaxiMuM (Big R Shimizu, Kotoka, & Ben-K)
Two Count Rules Match and Open the Triangle Gate Number One Contendership Tournament Semi-Finals
Kobe World Hall, Kobe, Japan
(reviewed 09/16/2017) Hardly a surprise that this is a fun little two count tournament match. The two count rules and the youth on display from five of these guys makes this a fast fast fast match with lots of great action, some of the best move execution I’ve seen in a while in Dragon Gate. The finishing sequence in particular with Eita’s victory roll, Ben-K’s spear, and Kotoka’s la magistral are all pretty damn perfect and a joy to watch. Great to see wee baby Kotoka get another big pinfall, too.
