How the hell am I supposed to go back to watching modern pro wrestling after that?!? Guess I’ll just have to stick to Walter matches and he occasional big NXT match like Balor v Kyle. This match is the art of simulated combat and reminds me what I love about wrestling in general.

Who in modern wrestling would fit in with this 90s AJPW style? I’d say guys like Walter and Samoa Joe would fit perfectly. Roman is another guy I’d love to see fight in this style of match.
