Our match of the week is Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada, on January 31, 2010, from Differ Ariake in Tokyo, Japan (NJPW).

With the benefit of hindsight, it should have been obvious. Maybe only a handful of people knew, but this wasn’t a send-off; it was a setup. I’ve seen this match before, but this time, the lightbulb went on.
