Tomohiro Ishii vs Togi Makabe
****1/4

August 12, 2016
Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW G1 Climax 26 – Day 17


Your routine Tomohiro Ishii match, which might look like all his others, but doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome. You know what to expect with him: chop, slaps, stiff clotheslines, and sick headbutts. Heat was great and the selling was strong (the two are directly proportional, you know). Togi Makabe did a German superplex at one point, and ended the move still standing on the ropes. Not sure how that’s possible, but he did it.
