Kota Ibushi vs. KUSHIDA from NJPW’s Best of the Super Juniors 2010

Recap from TJ Hawke:

KUSHIDA got control of the match after a bit and then worked Ibushi over for a while. Ibushi eventually managed to send KUSHIDA to the floor and then hit his moonsault to the floor. They got back to the ring and traded forearms. Ibushi hit a combination of moves to get the advantage. KUSDHIDA came back with a piledriver for a nearfall. They traded pinning combinations. Ibushi hit a wild bridging German for a nearfall. KUSHIDA hit a massive satellite DDT and then a moonsault: 1…2…NO! The crowd for this very small show is actually getting lively. That seemingly never happens. Ibushi hit a super ‘rana: 1…2…NO! Ibushi followed that with a 450: 1…2…3!

Wow, this genuinely came out of nowhere. Sure, these two having a match on paper sounds great. However, they were in a small building, which usually signals a dead match. They completely overachieved and produced a match that I recommend to everyone to watch.

Match Rating: ***1/2
