Hirooki Goto vs Naomichi Marufuji
August 12, 2016
Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW G1 Climax 26 – Day 17
Holy crap, what a sleeper of a match in this tournament. Hirooki Goto is still an amazing performer and Naomichi Marufuji looked better than usual here. Intense, back and forth battle that had the crowd and this match was criminally overlooked in the G1 tournament this year. Had they gone five more minutes, it would’ve been even better. I really, really enjoyed this.
