Satoshi Kojima & Ricochet & David Finlay vs Young Bucks & Adam Cole
****1/4

September 25, 2016
Kobe World Memorial Hall in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan
NJPW Destruction
Never 6-Man Tag Team Championship

This was just a sensational match with all six looking crisp with all-action high spots. Adam Cole would be such a big star in the US if he was taller, as he’s a more agile, better looking version of HHH. Ricochet was on fire, and the Young Bucks were at their best, both in workrate and in their usual hilarity.

Satoshi Kojima also looked good and had the crowd behind him for his comebacks. But this match was all about making David Finlay Jr, and at least as far as execution, it worked. He didn’t get a ton of offense in, but the announcers put him over and that was the plan. In addition to that, this was just a super fun match with high spots galore and no selling (which is a complaint, but it’s never going to change, so we must get used to it). Some of the spots were very funny, like the triple suplex and triple chop into the corner that must be seen.
