Don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet but Kento Miyahara vs. The Bodyguard from the AJPW Junior Battle Glory Finals this year was stellar. I'm not crazy about The Bodyguard (is anyone, really?) but he really brought his A Game here to work his hometown of Osaka in this match with Kento.

Part of its appeal is definitely that we're starting to hit that stretch of the Kento Miyahara title run where you know him losing the title is actually coming sooner rather than later and it adds a whole new level of drama to hismatches. Not that I thought they were taking the title off someone who's clearly positioned as their new ace just to put it on Bodyguard, but there's always that lingering doubt in your mind during every nearfall that just ramps up the drama.

the Kento/Bodyguard match is real good. Kento is the best ace going today.

I'll 2nd even with the fact that it was done to a response of total silence from the crowd. I was really into it at home at least!

A good high energy match with excellent spots that felt like it could've gone either way right until the end. Shame that this wasn't on the Wrestlemania card but The Club vs. Sheamus & Cesaro vs. Enzo & Cass is, and will not be anywhere near that good.
