This was for HARASHIMA’s KO-D Openweight Championship.
This was an enjoyable mess, but it was a mess all the same. They went for the big fight feel. That kind of came across well. There were a lot of sloppy moments though that dragged the match down. The pacing was all over the place. There was a lot of inconsistent selling and work done involving Speedball’s leg. This just did not come together in the manner that you would have hoped. On a broad level though, this was a compelling battle so they did not fuck it up entirely. HARASHIMA won, obviously. (**3/4)
