Kazuchika Okada and Kenny Omega battled head-to-head in the second biggest New Japan Professional Wrestling (NJPW) show of the year, just days ago.

In the main event, Okada (the favourite) defended the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Canadian Kenny Omega. It was a back and forth match, ending in a draw.

Saturday was a rematch from Okada and Omega’s first meeting at the Tokyo dome, which many critics awarded a six-star rating. Round two was arguably better than the first, according to many wrestling fans on Twitter.

The greatest matches of all-time typically have a victor, but this match was different.

This match was so good that fans are literally praying for a second re-match.

But it the meantime, here are some of the highlights from the spirited round two.
