Marty Scurll vs Ricochet
May 31, 2017
Second Edion Arena in Osaka, Japan
NJPW Best of the Super Juniors (Day 12)
About what you’d expect from these two, which is excellent athleticism and some near falls toward the end. Ricochet is so ridiculously smooth and crisp with everything he does, and Scurll was right there with him. Crowd was into Ricochet as the face, and they also got into Scurll’s spots like the finger breaking. Not much in the way of storytelling, and of course all these devastating moves had zero effect, but you’ve come to expect that from today’s (and yesterday’s, for that matter) junior heavyweights.
