and Tanahashi/Shibata as the big matches to look for. Pretty standard
affair for their third show last night with a good Tanahashi/Kojima
match, and a great Okada/Makabe main event. We finished the night with
Tanahashi, Okada, Goto & Shelton X Benjamin all going 3-0 so far.
However the match getting buzz from the WON today is the BJW
Sekimoto/Shinobu main event from 6/30 that I was pimpin’ in the comments
here a couple weeks ago.
This is the BEST Big Man vs. Little
Man dichotomy I may have ever seen, because goddamn Shinobu’s offense is
so friggin’ believable here. And Sekimoto is in his usual
award-winning, mid-season form. This is in ever way possible a classic.
No back story needed, you either root for the little dude or the big
dude, because they represent your position in life and what you believe
in. That’s what’s great about wrestling when it’s done right, you can
see the story telling itself.
