HM: EVIL (C) vs. Hiromu Takahashi for the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental Championships - NJPW Sengoku Lord 7/25

I was ready to nominate this as a MOTYC until the last couple of minutes, which really took the wind out of my sails. The back half of the match was so loving good though.

I'm sorry but NJPW interference spots just do not work, they stretch my suspension of disbelief so far it just breaks and becomes comical. Is there really not a single referee who even slightly cares and/or is not made out of absolute paper

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

Aye, usually but only after it airs on Samurai. This show is due to air on the 2nd August so he'll probably have it up in 10 days or so. At a guess. That said, I really do recommend AJPW.tv. Yes, it's not got much in the way of an archive, the earliest show is 2017 & really it doesn't start having regular stuff until 2018, but All Japan is such a fun promotion right now, Ishikawa actually has the book right now & has since late last year & he's been doing some fun stuff. They have some great young wrestlers like Hokuto Omori, Dan Tamura, Akira Francesco & they use some outsiders like Ayato Yoshida & Rising HAYATO who are really enjoyable too, there's solid vets & yeah, if you have the spare $10 then it's well worth it.

Despy rules, and Shingo is an amazing wrestler. Just wish it ran a bit longer.

This was way better than I feared it would be, but not as good as the matches i've nominated MOTYC already.
