Talk about it here.

Just like I like the other Takada/Albright matches, I like this one, but they do tend to run together and go too long. For the occasional suplexes Albright is good for, there is quite a bit of laying on the mat. Takada's late rally with kicks to Albright's knees is terrific. Good match, but nothing I feel compelled to ever watch again.

The Albright series always gets brought up as an example of Takada as an all-time great. I think it proves quite the opposite.

This had it's moments especially towards the end but the beginning and middle were kinda boring. Crowd really got into it though.

Started off kinda boring. We'd get some cool suplexes from Albright to keep things interesting. The end stretch was pretty dramatic. Takada is put over big with Thesz, Robinson, and a 3rd guy I didn't recognize.

The rematch and Takada's revenge. They started off slowly and built it up. Being such diverse workers who combined so well is what makes this series special. The attacks were nicely balanced between strikes, moves and holds. Allbright was a hulking beast who carried an air of danger with his size and sumplexes. But he had to be wary of Takada's strikes and technique. It got red hot in the 2nd half with a big match feel. Takada barely managed to avoid the most dangerous sumplex and locked on the jujigatame for the victory. Intelligently worked, and left me wanting to see the next match in the rivalry.
