2017 MOTY Countdown: #1 Dragon Lee vs. Hiromu Takahashi

Dragon Lee and Takahashi have taken the whole concept of a spotfest past it's logical conclusion into some black hole of wrestling where selling is what brings a match down and a spotfest is the only way to tell a gripping, coherent story. This is the latest in their series of matches and continues to build upon the previous matches with moves that worked before no longer working and the violence continuing to escalate. These two have pushed each other beyond any semblance of having a limit, both in terms of the damage they must endure and the violence they must commit to if they want to win. There is nothing like these matches in the world of wrestling.
