This was for Okada’s IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
These guys had some charming midcard battles a few years back, but this one did not really connect. Fale is just too cuddly to be that dangerous main event monster for NJPW. Fale’s work is slow soft and that does not jive in the slightest for this kind of position. Okada won after a million (okay, three) Rainmakers. (**1/4)
