Beech27 Posted December 20, 2018 Share Posted December 20, 2018 Kenny's done a better job recently for sure, and the match will be good enough to put the whole feud in a positive light... but I wish there was a little more of a bright line in this conflict of styles. Maybe I've just been around a bit too long, but I can't see Tanahashi as a pure strong-style vanguard. He's always been the flashy "sports entertainer" (his favorite wrestler is HBK!) with a heavy emphasis on melodrama and narrative in his matches, conveyed through contextual deployment of a relatively small move-set. Which is, plus goofier faces, exactly what Kenny does. If it's just a question of how foreign-focused New Japan should be, that was essentially the build for Omega/Okada; only now, you'd be pretty hard pressed to say Kenny's wrong. (Which is to say, if Kenny weren't a brat on twitter so often, I'm not sure Tana would have much of an argument here; and it really would look like he just wanted to keep his spot. Maybe that's the idea?) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
