Zack Sabre Jr vs Tomohiro Ishii
August 11, 2017
Sumo Hall in Tokyo, Japan
NJPW G1 Climax (Day 17)
This was a rematch of their meeting in Long Beach that I attended live, and this time the skinny twerp Zack Sabre Jr evened the score. The visual really hit home how short Tomohiro Ishii is, although it’s not really an issue in most of his matches because of the style he works.
The usual great submissions with good crowd heat. At one point Ishii was in a hold that resembled some of the poses I do in DDP Yoga, which ended up being the finish from a ref stoppage (as opposed to Ishii quitting).
