I want to try to review all the Wrestle Kingdom main events while they’re free on New Japan World.
I don’t think I need too many words to describe this one. Tenryu attacks Sasaki right away. Sasaki fires back. They pretty much just beat on each other back and forth most of the time. There’s not a lot of holds attempted (I just remember a headlock and a variation of the Strangle Hold). Sasaki gets sick of Tenryu jabbing and chopping him, so he unloads with closed-fist punches. Tenryu hits a spider German suplex from the top. He gets super bombed attempting a Frankensteiner, but Sasaki manages to pull of a Frankensteiner when he tries. Tenryu hits his scoop brainbuster, but Sasaki beats that with two Northern Lights Bombs and pins him.
Winner – Kensuke Sasaki
Rating – Good
Pretty good thanks to how heated it was. The finishing stretch is the best part.
