re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)
A bit more than a year ago I discovered the greatness that is puro wrestling. One of the first matches I watched was Sasaki vs Kobashi from 7/18/05 because it's the #1 match in the OP of this thread and thought it was one of the stupidest matches I'd ever seen. Watched it for a second time a couple days ago and definitely appreciate the match a lot more and thought it was awesome. Would give it somewhere north of 4.5*.
Also glad that match happened when it did because I just finished Kobashi/KENTA vs Sasaki/Nakajima from 6/14/08 and Kobashi looks like he didn't belong in a ring at all. To think he still wrestles today
Okada vs Goto from Dontaku: around ***3/4 I think. Didn't have much flow to it and went at least 5 minutes to long. The awkward botch by them when Okada slipped off doing his finisher. One saving grace to this match was the angle they shot the finish at with Goto nearly losing his head when Okada finally delivered the "rainmaker". Def. .gif worthy.
