7/10/09 Shinkiba 1st RING, KO-D Openweight Title Next Challenger Tournament Final: Kota Ibushi vs. Sanshiro Takagi 31:53. This was a one-match show, literally, so they did their best to deliver a memorable long match. Takagi is a comedy wrestler for a reason. He isn't really athletic, lacking grace and body control, but he was a real blue collar man, giving a focused workmanlike performance that got Ibushi over despite Takagi controlling 80% of the match. It was by no means outstanding, but they did what they could with Takagi taking it seriously and finding it in himself to gut out a match that was certainly a lot longer and more demanding than he's used to. Takagi dominated in the methodical old school technical style, working Ibushi's knee. Ibushi made the match with his brief spectacular high flying comebacks. He was good, but Ibushi wasn't elevating Takagi, he was simply interspersing his great offense at the right time to keep things going. Ibushi used Takagi's sunflower bomb on him in addition to many of his own aerial moves. The big highlight was Ibushi hitting a phoenix splash to the floor! There's good reason I've never seen this before or after, as it must have killed his ribs given the table Takagi was on didn't break. The seconds were spraying him down with no pain spray, but, in the end, the match seemed to take more of a toll on his older counterpart Takagi, who really gave everything he had to the audience, and was struggling just to walk after the match. Ibushi finally hit a regular phoenix splash to earn the shot at HARASHIMA on 8/23/09 at Ryogoku. ***
