Tetsuya Naito & Evil & Bushi & Seiya Sanada & Hiromu Takahashi vs Ricochet & Dragon Lee & Juice Robinson & Rysuke Taguchi & Satoshi Kokima
June 3, 2017
Yoyogi Gym in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW Best of the Super Juniors Finals
Fast paced, all-action affair with Dragon Lee standing out in the beginning. Really, everyone here was awesome, particularly Takahashi, Sanada, Ricochet, and even Evil. Juice Robinson seemed almost invisible, and Naito and Bushi were strong as well.
Almost no selling at all to speak of, which is less noticeable in multi-tag matches, but still pretty ridiculous. Spot after spot and not a second of rest, and heat was good throughout. It remains a mystery how these guys memorize all these spots and pull them off perfectly.
Sanada is a can’t-miss star of the future, though he really needs to express himself more if he intends to be a successful headliner in the post Tanahashi era.
