Hikaru Sato vs. Kota Ibushi 16:18. Ibushi pretty much stuck to Sato's shoot style, Ibushi is good enough in shoot style that the match more than succeeded. In fact, he allowed Sato to put on a technical display. Sato transitions very quickly on the mat, and showed a lot of potential here. They started off trading elbows that would make Misawa proud and Kawada snapmare and punt to the back spots, except they were doing these on the bleacher steps. It settled into a Hard Hit match once they returned to the ring, with very little deviation. Ibushi once tried to work in a standing moonsault, but Sato scissored his body on the way down and transitioned into an armbar. Sato scored the win to earn the title shot on 11/28/10, but this match was far superior to that one as Ibushi is much better working Sato's style than Togo is, and Sato isn't to the point where it's really beneficial for him to stray to far from his shooting background. ***1/2

KO-D Title Match: Hikaru Sato vs. Dick Togo 22:10 of 27:55. Slow building match with a lot of body work and submission. Sato didn't look that comfortable or coordinated, but has enough knowledge of submission from his Pancrase days to get by. Togo is a traditional pro style wrestler and didn't set him up nearly as well as Sato did in the 10/24/10 match that earned Sato this title shot. Sato instead shifted his attack more toward a technical pro style, spending much of the match working Togo's knee, building to a big spot where he got his legs up for Togo's diving senton and transitioned into an ankle lock. Togo toned it down much of the way, but picked it up in the final minutes, hitting a pedigree on the floor, a senton atomico to the floor, and an in ring pedigree before taking Sato out with his diving senton to take the title. A quality match, but I was hoping for a little more. **3/4

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Title Match: Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega vs. Jado & Gedo 16:39 of 21:24. Jado & Gedo work Ibushi's knee over early, taking him out of the match. Omega had a great hot tag run where he made Jado & Gedo look like the tools they are for quite a while, but Jado & Gedo kept clipping Ibushi's knee every time he made it to the apron, so Omega eventually succumbed to their double teams. Omega is perpetual motion. He doesn't always have perfect coordination or body control, but he's certainly wrestling with passion, and that alone was almost enough to save this match. Omega did his best to make Jado & Gedo interesting, but the best they could do was be crafty. Jado was just awful. He's more muscular than ever, and all that's done is made him slow as molasses and as robotic as C3PO. Gedo was a lot better, if only because he was passable rather than embarrassing. **
