Okada vs Tanahashi today i'm so fucking nervous
Okada and Tanahashi was great and all, but I just took a whizz in Japan’s Nicest Public Toilet (2015). Special. https://t.co/p68R2DQh7l
There are three things guaranteed in life:
Okada and Tanahashi having an instant classic each and every time they wrestle.

Okada and Tanahashi have done it again. They are never not great. Wrestling excellence.
Tanahashi vs. Okada has been brilliant.
Just fantastic pro wrestling from two wonderful pro wrestlers.
About to go to bed but I just want to say that I LOVE the hype that is happening on the TL for Tanahashi and Okada right now in the G1. Go Ace! And Go Trunks!!! ❤️🔥
Enjoy the show! ❤️
Okada & Tanahashi have one of the best feuds in wrestling history! Their matches are always electrifying! Two of the best to ever do it! They just had one hell of a match! #G131 https://t.co/CI5uroCuPh
Okada wins just under the 30-minute time limit. As middling as Tanahashi-Okada matches really get so like four stars & shit. And I mean old man four stars not that thing with youngsters who are like "not a very good match. four stars."
Naito/ZSJ, Ishii/Shingo and Okada/Tanahashi all ruled this weekend. KENTA/Yano made me laugh.
They're sure going through a rough phase but few things are greater in this world when NJPW delivers. #G131
Okada vs Tanahashi **** 3/4
Time to rewatch Okada vs Tanahashi
G1 not getting much buzz over here but first two nights have seen plenty of good wrestling. If I had to pick One Match I'd go with Shingo-Ishii but Sabre-Naito and Tanahashi-Okada were terrific, too, and the rest mostly solid.
Stop me if you've heard it before:
Okada and Tanahashi just absolutely killed it out there. What a privilege that we get to witness this rivalry. #G131
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada (NJPW G1 Climax 31 N2 9/19/21)
Tanahashi. Okada. Did it again.
I HAD to watch that live and it didn't disappoint. One of the greatest rivalries ever. Great match between two icons.
Das erste Mal seit Jahren wieder Okada vs. Tanahashi heute und natürlich war es großartig! (****1/4) #G131
OKADA vs Tanahashi is MOTY candidate. If you see closely, there was so many moments taken from past...and OKADA bringing back the rainmaker gesture to the closing moments of match. It was Banger. 🔥🔥🔥ONE OF THE BEST SUNDAY OF 2021.
WHAT A BREATH TAKING FIGHT!!!
LEGENDS!!! CONGRATULATIONS OKADA & TANAHASHI SAN. FANS ARE THE REAL WINNER. #NJPW #G131 https://t.co/LiNX4acm2C
The fact that I’m alive to see all that BTS is doing & watch the Tanahashi/Okada rivalry makes me so blessed!
