Jun Akiyama vs. Joe Doering from AJPW 2011
Post by TJ Hawke:
This was a Champion Carnival match. Akiyama had two points going into this one, while Doering had zero.
Despite being fans of both of these guys, this did not do much for me. Doering was particularly weak while working on top. He just did not make that time count in any meaningful way despite his portion on top taking up the majority of the match. Akiyama’s comeback was fine and everything, but I had long since lost interest. Still, this had some solid heat down the stretch, and I can see others appreciating it more than I did. Lukewarm recommendation. (**1/2)
Also, Joe mate, what the fuck was going on with your hair?
