Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada from NJPW 2019

This was a 2019 G1 Climax match.

Given that almost every single match between these two has been an attempt (whether successful or not) at some sort of epic main event, it was deeply refreshing to watch them just do what was essentially a television version of their match. It beautifully blended competitiveness without forcing something bigger down everyone’s throats. Big thumbs up! [Okada won cleanly via Rainmaker.] (***)
