Tajiri & Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Great Bash Heel (Tomoaki Honma & Togi Makabe) from NJPW 2010

Recap from TJ Hawke:

Well, this is an interesting matchup. Great Bash Heel cut off Tajiri and worked over his right leg. Tajiri eventually avoided a corner splash from Makabe and tagged out to Tanahashi. Tanahashi made a big comeback. Makabe fired back with a series of lariats on Tanahashi. Honma tagged in and hit a missile dropkick. Honma is much more plump here than he is now (2014). He nearly had Tanahashi defeated with a lariat, but Tajiri made the save. Tajiri covered the referee’s eyes and sprayed Honma with mist. Tanahashi then hit him with a Sling Blade and a High Fly Flow: 1…2…3

Wow, there were actual “ECW!” chants after the match.

I was pretty disappointed in this to be perfectly honest. At best, it was a fine house show effort, but it had an awful finish which killed the limited goodwill I held towards the match. Thumbs down for this one.

Match Rating: *1/2
