Shinobu & Takuya Nomura vs Kazuki Hashimoto & Yuya Aoki
Shin-Kiba 1st RING, Tokyo, Japan
(reviewed 10/24/2017) This is the second Aoki match I’ve seen since his debut back in January. Boy does that kid look solid for nine months in, reminding me a lot of Hyo Watanabe from Dragon Gate. An athletic smaller guy who looks smooth in the ring but not overly so, just enough to be a lot of fun. Helps that he’s in there with the three best juniors BJW’s got right now and together they put together a nice little match that gets Shin-Kiba rockin’.
