Jay White is still IWGP Champion, but the story of this match is likely to be the botch ending. Jay White pinned Adam Cole after Adam Cole... collapsed for no reason. It appeared that he was meant to be hit with a Rainmaker from Kazuchika Okada first, but he accidentally dodged it -- then sold it afterward. It's possible that Adam Cole was injured at some point.
This match at first almost had a flavor of a Tornado Tag. Jay White and Adam Cole are buddies and distinct heels, so the opening minutes focused on them working over one or both of the good guys. The highlight of this was Adam Cole clocking Hangman Page with a Superkick while Page was midair, in the middle of a Moonsault attempt.
Eventually, of course, the facade of friendship cracked. With Page and Okada out, Cole talked Jay White into double teaming Page. As White walked off to do that, Cole hit him with a Backcracker. Jay White ended up getting the advantage, hitting a dragon suplex on Cole -- and then Okada, and then Page. Cole then surprised White with a Boom Knee, but was cut down by a Shotgun Dropkick from Okada, who in turn ate a Discuss Clothesline from Page. The crowd chants "this is awesome!" as all four are laid out.
Hangman Page attempted to cinch the match with a Buckshot Lariat on White, but he's stopped by Cole. Page kicks off Cole, then takes both Cole and Okada out with a Moonsault to the outside. After distraction from Gedo, who manages Jay White, Page hits a Deadeye and then a Buckshot Lariat on White, but the pinfall is broken up.
From there Okada was the star of the match, wrestling a sequence with Adam Page and then Adam Cole. There was a super creative spot where Okada attempted a Rainmaker clothesline on Cole but Cole dodged, but at that precise moment Page attempted a Buckshot Lariat on Okada. Okada dodged and swung Page into a Rainmaker, but before he could hit it Cole clocked him with a Superkick.
It was a bit of a Superkick party after that, with Cole hitting a number of them on both Okada and Page.
But here's where everything went wrong.
Okada did a Mitchinoku Driver on Adam Cole to setup a Rainmaker. Okada tried to hit the Rainmaker, but Cole ducked it -- but then collapsed. Jay White ran in and took out Okada with the Switchblade, but then pinned Adam Cole.
It appears Cole was meant to be laid out by the Rainmaker, but he ducked it.
Rating: 3.75 stars. Terrific match, but taken down a peg by the botched finish.
