    Katsuyori Shibata went into the Sumo Hall with one plan and that is to destroy the Rainmaker. The match itself felt like a prize fight in itself:

    Okada was in for the fight of his life while Shibata was fighting for...the spirit of Strong Style. This match seem like a typical NJPW long winded title match, but for me it was the greatest wrestling match I have ever seen. At the end of this match, Okada became more than just a "lolz Japanese Orton" as he presented himself as the embodiment of the old "Three Musketeers".

    In Shibata's case...he sadly retired from the wrestling ring due to his close to a life threatening injury, but man this dude went out in style. Wrestlers often say that they would die in the ring, for Shibata it was Sunday:wow:

    Last of a dying breed of wrestlers that would die for this business :wow:

    I remember during the G1 when Naito was slowly going LIJ. He had his first match with Shibata. While AJ was laughing and talking shyt about Naito taking his sweet ass time taking his suit off, Shibata looked at him taking his shyt off and was like :beli::martin:.

    The moment Naito went for his pants, all he saw was the boot :deadmanny::deadmanny::deadmanny:

    Shibata did not fukk around by any means, either wrestle and die or wrestle or die :wow:

    Great match :mjcry: wish he would’ve worked the headbutt instead of trying to cave in Okada’s skull.
