I have watched it all now and here is my Absolutely Objective Match Rankings (best to worst) that, based on internet buzz, must drastically underrate Akiyama vs Marufuji, but whatever, it's top 10 anyhow:

I got behind and so resolved to wait until the end and then binge, but instead I just watched the finals and will roughly work backwards or more likely jump all over. But yeah, that final! Great relatively understated selling from both men combined with high-end moves that weren’t quite finishers and really fast/clean/violent strike exchanges—that knee to knee!—made for a perfect example of how you do a near-fall-filled main event without inducing eye rolling.
