This was a 2/3 falls match.
This was absolutely fantastic and one of the best showcases for the juniors in NJPW history. From bell to bell, this was just an absolute war. You did not need context to appreciate the desire on each side to prove how great of a wrestler they were.
The match was also constantly evolving which was super appreciated. Otani and co. were often isolating one of their opponents in the hope that would give them the edge. The match’s pace would pick up or slow down depending the strategy of whichever team was in control. The “everyone dive!” sequence actually managed to be organically built to so it felt significant. Almost everything about this one was great.
It even had the added benefit of the future Dragon Soldier B/Kendo Kashin being absolutely terrible. Even the commentators were laughing him. What a time. Pegasus picked up both falls for his team to win 2-0. (****1/2)
