Prince Devitt vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi from NJPW 2010


Recap from TJ Hawke:

Tanahashi cut Devitt off early with a dragon screw legwhip in the ropes. Tanahashi worked over the injured leg.  Devitt eventually came back with a dropkick and a tope con hello.  Devitt then got a nearfall with a missile dropkick.  Devitt got another nearfall with a superplex.  Tanahashi came back and locked in a cloverleaf.   Devitt made the ropes. Tanahashi went for the frogsplash, but Devitt avoided it. Devitt hit a double stomp.  Devitt hit another double stomp: 1…2…NO! Devitt hit a Trouble in Paradise, bit Tanahashi avoided Bloody Sunday. Tanahashi came back with an arm trap German: 1…2…NO! Devitt rolled Tanahashi up for a nearall. Devitt got another pinning combination: 1…2…3!


I enjoyed this a lot. They kept it simple, but it was always engaging and the match made me think that they had the chemistry to have a potentially fantastic match one day. These are two of the best wrestlers in the world. Thus, the match is worth checking out for that alone.

Match Rating: ***1/4
