Davey Richards vs. Kota Ibushi from NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 2010


Recap from TJ Hawke:

Davey tries to ground Ibushi early, but Ibushi is able to get out of the holds and hits a dropkick. They end up on the apron and start kicking each other. That ends when Davey slams him on the apron with a wrist lock. Davey then goes after his arm some more.  Ibushi came back with a sloppy hurricanrana, and then hit a moonsault to the floor from the middle rope. Back in the ring, Ibushi hit some kicks, a standing shooting star, and a lionsault, but Davey kicked out at two.  They traded rollups , which the crowd was really into.  Ibushi hit a snap German, but Davey kicked out.  They ended up on the top rope, and Ibushi hit a beautiful hurricanrana but Davey kicked out at 2 again.  Ibushi then finished him off with a 450 splash.  A really good match that is worth seeing for sure, but it was a couple of notches below their matches in Ring of Honor and in Evolve.

Match Rating: ***1/2
