Kushida vs Jushin Liger

May 3, 2016
Fukuoka Kasai Center in Osaka, Japan
NJPW Wrestling Dontaku
IWGP Junior Championship

They did a video piece before the match showing Kushida as a child mimicking Jushin Liger’s moves, and you didn’t have to speak Japanese to know he idolized him growing up. Solid match, and a different kind you’d expect now that Liger is older and can’t do the moves he used to. This was more matwork and submissions, but looked very realistic and intense, and the crowd was with them.
