Katsuyori Shibata vs Kazunari Murakami from BML 2005

This was a very competitive and fun main event for the first BML show (and thankfully for Shibata, ended much differently than their 2003 NJPW match). Both guys spent the whole match (that barely went past ten minutes) trying to either finish each other or look for an opening to that would eventually lead to a potential finish. There was just a ton of good action here, and it felt like a genuinely fresh approach to main event wrestling. Good stuff all around. Murakami won after blocking a second PK and then hitting a brutal running knee to the chest. (***3/4)
