It must suck to be Okada and Omega right now. The ultra picky IWC is calling this the best match of all time, almost in unison. How the hell do you top that?

YES!

EDIT: done!

HBK vs Taker Mania 25 is the greatest match of all time to me. But I can see where they are coming from with Okada vs Omega. That match was fucking incredible.

3) Kenny Omega is out of this world. He might be the perfect combination of wrestler/sports entertainer in the business.
4) If there was an award for best performance by a prop, the table in this match would win in a landslide. I don't think I have ever seen a table better teased or better utilized, leading to one of the greatest payoff crowd reactions I've ever witnessed. On its own, it may not stand out from other remarkable table spots – but in the context of its match, it was just incredible.
4) This is probably not the best choice if you are trying to get to sleep late at night. #OmegaVsOkada may be many things, but it is NOT a cure for late night insomnia.

Please feel free to share your thoughts on this incredible match. If you haven't seen it, you really should!

Wrestle Kingdom 11 was awesome. Completely lived up to the hype.

The show should not be skinned down to one exceptional match and some Meltzer hyperbole. The entire show was great. And even on an individual match level:
  • Takahashi vs. Kushida was hella dope.
  • Shibata vs. Goto was incredibly brutal in a great way.
  • Naito vs. Tanahashi was supremely compelling.
  • And, yes, Omega vs. Okada was unreal.
Can't say enough about the performances by Shibata and Naito. Shibata makes Serious Lance Storm look like Carrot Top. Naito is one of the best heels in the world. And the Bucks entertained me all year. I think they were on every non-WWE or AAA event I watched.
