New Japan World Tag League 2016
Kazuchika Okada & YOSHI-HASHI versus Yoshitatsu & Billy Gunn
The World Tag League by and large is an out-dated concept, but the inclusion of oddities like Billy Gunn makes it worth checking out. I was never a big fan of Gunn in the WWE, he was the epitome of the 'Looks Like Tarzan, Wrestles Like Jane' and just didn't have the personality to match it with the stars of the promotion. However I was always keen to watch him in a different environment and I'm sort of sad that Gunn never got a chance to play the big strong guy in Japan. Even at 53 he still has the size and the crowd bought into his interactions and popped whenever he'd cuss out his opponents. Sometimes you watch a match and you know it isn't a classic but you just see the workers having a good time and can't help but enjoy yourself. In this case, Gunn seems to relish being in the ring with a world-class star like Okada and Kazuchika appreciates a veteran who worked during one of the most successful eras in Pro Wrestling history.
Chaos gets the win, Gunn eyes down Okada, the two exchange words until Gunn slowly backs off.
