There’s a lot of talk about how this is one of the most successful pairings in modern NOAH. I can’t speak to that outside of their great match from last year’s Global Junior League but this was certainly strong stuff. The opening mat work is fluid and lively before transitioning into Ohara once again working over Harada’s back. Harada sells it well, of course, but the real appeal here is just how good both guys are on offense. Everything looks just so damn neat and crisp. They clearly have a lot of chemistry working together. It helps make the match a real smooth affair that’s just easy to watch. That they even find another gear to elevate themselves into in the deep waters is impressive as well. The match is already moving at a great pace when they start busting out some absolutely vicious strikes that led them right into the finish. Really great stuff here, the kind of wrestling that’s as comforting as it is exciting.
