A really good match that borders on great. A lot of the first half doesn’t really click with me especially when it’s being played for a crowd that can’t even be bothered to applaud for too much. Things only start kicking into gear when HARASHIMA starts hitting some sweet double stomps to Higuchi’s midsection that the big man sells wonderfully. This leads into a great finishing stretch that’s built primarily around big strikes being traded. HARASHIMA’s chest visibly reddens and those shots are enough to draw a reaction even out of this dead crowd. Good stuff all around that would have come off even better played to a better audience.
