SHINING WIZARD~! While Ditch regards this as Muto’s breakout match for his new persona, I cannot help but think that Kawada is mostly responsible for that. Everything Muto brought to the table, Kawada did or made better. This was, quite frankly, a hell of a performance by Kawada (more so than his usual going) that enjoyed the fruits of such wondrous selling. As much as I liked Misawa’s work on Akiyama’s neck in the match a few days prior, Kawada’s was better. Muto’s almost lucky that Kawada never decapitated him with his moves. Good on the toothless bastard for cockily taking a bicycle kick from a running start on the apron, too. He simply owns shit and his work here is reason enough why.

This placed 15th when I never completed did Ditch's Best of 2000s poll. That said, I only finished the first two years. This won't place here. Great Kawada performance that needs to be seen, though.
