(reviewed 10/23/2017) Easily the best match of Takahashi’s title reign. That’s not saying much, but this one is actually quite good because he’s finally got a talented and game opponent, a combination he’s been sorely lacking. Both these guys come to play here and blow through a bunch of glass in typical fashion, bleeding buckets all over the place and doing all sorts of dumb shit. This sure ain’t Nick Bockwinkel but it’ll do if you don’t mind gore and a bit of masochism.
