|The champions, Ishikawa & Sato, make their entrance.
All four men are battling on the outside at this point. Sekimoto gets body slammed on the floor and as things settle back into the ring, he becomes isolated by Twin Towers. They work him over until Sekimoto is able to get some separation after hitting Sato with a suplex. Okabyashi with the hot tag! Twin Towers go to double team him, but he reverses, DOUBLE SUPLEX! Okabayashi ends up getting worked over for a minute though and gets his own power comeback spot. Sekimoto gets tagged in and starts laying it into Ishikawa. From this point, things got really hectic and I'm not going to try to call all of it because my words & explanation won't do it justice. It's one of those things that you need to see for yourself.
Everything early on was stiff, but in this final 10 minutes or so, it became even more than stiff. They absolutely murdered each other with every little shot. So much so that Sato AND Okabayashi had lacerations on their foreheads from the brutality they had endured and continued to give out. Headbutts, chops, elbows, vicious lariats, suplexes, back drop drivers.
After throwing bombs of all different sort for like 10 minutes, Okabayashi & Sato seemingly go into desperation mode trading shots in the center of the ring. Unbeknowst to me, the time limit is close to expiring. They trade strikes and LARIATOOOOO! Sato is on his head for the 1..2..KICK OUT! Okabayashi repeatedly tries pinning him to no avail as the time limit expires.
|Sato delivers an earth-shattering falcon arrow to Okabayashi off the top rope.
This was 30 minutes of brutality and one of the best tag matches of the year. High recommendation from me.
Match rating - ****3/4
