Okada is really started to hold his own when he's grappling with Tanahashi and he looks smug as hell about it. Both guys work their respective formulas on each other, Tana going for the legs with Dragon Screws and Okada softening Tana's neck with cravate holds and his gorgeous yet devastating dropkicks.
I love when the guys tee off with forearms, especially when Tanahashi's on the defensive. They play back to this moment during the very last moments of the finishing stretch with Tanahashi collapsing and this sells the exhaustion of both men exceptionally well. Speaking of the finishing stretch, it's utterly brilliant. The momentum swings feel organic and natural, Okada cuts him off with big move that focuses on the neck and Tana regains control by hitting a dragon screw or basement dropkick. Okada finally is put away with the High Fly Flow much to the fan's approval.
This is the first match between these two that felt like an epic. The atmosphere and emotion is off the charts and it's becoming crystal clear at this point that these guys have something very special.
