Before Adam Pearce and Colt Cabana had their fantastic Seven Levels of Hate match-ups for the NWA World Title, Adam Pearce worked a title match with Adam Cole. Adam Cole, in the year of 2013, has exploded into the main event scene of a few notable companies, including Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, as its World Heavyweight Champion, and Ring of Honor, as its World Heavyweight Champion. Adam Pearce, on the other hand, made a brief appearance on TNA iMPACT this year and finally got over with the mainstream audience.

So, in honor of their respective successes, lets enjoy a great match-up with two true professionals.

* Kurt Angle vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi – IWGP Heavyweight Championship – Time: 4/5/2009
Place: New Japan Pro Wrestling Resolution 2009 @ Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan

A few years ago, Kurt Angle was contractually obligated by TNA to appear for New Japan, due to the contracts language. He didn’t enjoy being forced to wrestle without his consent, but he honored his contract and wrestled a series of match-ups in NJPW, including this gem, with New Japan mega-star, Hiroshi Tanahashi. Speaking of Tanahashi, he’s gone on to become, in the eyes of many, the number on wrestler in the world, with numerous classics with Kazuchika Okada, one the youngest World Champions ever. This is a hell of a match, so enjoy.
