Kushida vs Ryusuke Taguchi
May 29, 2017
Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW Best of the Super Juniors (Day 11)
Everyone knows Kushida is one of the best in the world, however I was blown away by how good Taguchi was here. He completely kept up with Kushida, and in some spots one-upped him. The chain wrestling spots and submission reversals were off the charts, and this match was every bit of ****1/2.
Crowd was red hot for most of the match and you really could’ve have asked for more from these two. Very physical battle, the kind that will leave both guys waking up very sore tomorrow. Highly recommended.
