Seiya Sanada & Evil vs Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr
January 4, 2018
Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW WrestleKingdom 12
IWGP Tag Team Championship
Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr absolutely obliterated Seiya Sanada and Evil for most of the match, doing devastating moves and looking great in doing so. They’d be a good addition to WWE to feud with bigger tag teams like Authors of Pain, Bludgeon Brothers, and Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows.
This meant LIJ had to sell most of the way, which isn’t their strong suit, but it worked in the end when they made their comebacks and pulled off the win and got the titles. Both teams came off looking strong here, for different reasons. And somebody please tell Smith to grow his hair long, because he’s look like 10x the star he does now with that massive size he’s got. Without it, he just looks like another guy who doesn’t stand out.
