This was a Royal Road Tournament 2016 First Round match.
These guys worked like they were too old for this shit. That actually is not the end of the world and can be compensated with cleverness and craftiness. Instead, it came off like they felt compelled to work a main event style match due to them being in the ring together. Combining that with a lesser effort and attention to detail created an unsatisfying match that almost had to leave every viewer underwhelmed. Skip this one. Akiyama won with a wrist-clutch exploder. (**1/4)
