Super Delfin vs. TAKA Michinoku (NJPW Best of the Super Juniors 5/26/94)

Match ReviewsSuper Delfin

Another rather lowkey match from Delfin here, this time coming from the block stage of the 1994 Best of the Super Juniors. Storywise, there’s not much to chew on here outside of Delfin once again playing a more rudo character. Even then, there’s really no extended heat or especially dastardly tactics that he employs in this match. It’s really more just a very straightforward midcard junior heavyweight showcase. With that, there’s of course a lot of smooth and impressive work from both men. To Delfin’s credit, some of the more substantial flourishes of character from his end here such as his stooge bumping for an atomic drop or eating shit when trying to provoke TAKA with a stiff back kick. Offensively though, we get some of Delfin’s more impressive moves in any of the matches I’ve covered yet. Most noteworthy to me were a step up twisting enzuigiri of sorts and the double rolling German suplexes which win him the day. As a whole, a good match but nothing really worth going out of your way for.
