Jimmy Kagetora vs Takehiro Yamamura – Dragon Gate (05/05/2017)

Parm: Right off the bat this feels like a big time singles match. The first half of this match felt a bit too slow for my liking, but once Yamamura hit a dive things picked up. Things eventually slow down again, and the moves used here just don’t feel like they leave an impact. The near falls are fairly well done, with leg work coming into play. Too many times the match just becomes a strike battle followed by some kicks. Ultimately, an okay title match missing something to make it truly memorable. Kagetora wins the match and retains his title in 13:42. (***)
