This is probably my favorite match of the new Japan boom. When it happened, I rated the Tanahashi vs. Okada Invasion attack match higher, but I love this one more as time goes on. Ishii's fire turns him into a superstar in this match in front of a white hot crowd that is dying for him to win but never really quite believes it. Ishii is a great underdog and Tanahashi the perfect foil. This is basically everything I want in a wrestling match. This is probably top 20, maybe top 10 for me.
