Match from DDT Goodbye Hakata Starlanes!
1.KO-D Openweight Title: Takeshita(c) vs Jiro ***1/2
Joining in on saying farewell to the Starlanes, DDT gave us a big title match and with news of the Ikemen leaving Japan soon, this is even more important.
Note, by the way, that the video above is the digest version by the way.
So, I'll admit that this was a bit disappointing. They went for a slow burn, but the first span just didn't hit the right notes for me. The good news is the action picked up nicely as it went along. While it wasn't a MOTYC like I had hoped, it was still a pretty good title match.
Long live Takeshita!
