    It’s kind of funny, but I would really like to see Ikuhisa Minowa vs. Katsuyori Shibata. They’d be busting out powerbombs on each other, taking mid-fight breaks to hype the crowd up…

    Would be very beatiful.

    I actually also thought that that would be the best match-up. If Minowa can bring back some of the intensity he used to have, the intensity in the ring with those two standing face to face would be incredible.

    I think we both know it’s more likely that one will go to Akiyama and the other will go to Kang. Which is a shame, because Minowaman/Shibata could be epic.

    Yeah, but I’m not sure about Kang, this is the last fight in his contract, do they want to send him out with a victory if he doesn’t re-sign?
