For DDT’s 23rd Anniversary, they dished up a rematch that everyone has been waiting for. Akiyama vs Higuchi makes sense, no matter what way you look at it. So let’s sit back and watch the two big boys hit each other.

It’s been a while since I last wrote about DDT. That wasn’t a decision I made on purpose or because I’d stopped enjoying the company, there is simply too much wrestling and too little time.
