Re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)
Andre at his best was incredible.
And yeah, Inoki is like the "Hulk Hogan" of New Japan (and owner, duh), but Choshu's a million times better wrestler and just one of the most charismatic people ever.
Saito wasn't on team UWF; he never worked for that company. He just had a big feud with Inoki going and sometimes they'd team him up with Fujiwara and others to oppose Inoki and Fujinami/Kimura/whoever else. He even worked against UWF guys (including a stupidly bloody match with Maeda. You'll know the one with how Ditch describes it). He was a part of Choshu's team against Inoki and all those guys before Choshu decided to take all his dudes and head to AJ, though. I could be wrong about some of that, but he definitely never worked for UWF. He is, though, motherfucking awesome. I'm eager to see him in All Japan & AWA.
Oops. Yeah, you're right. This is the second time I've mistaken the Choshu stuff with the UWF stuff.
Still, twenty years from now, whether I'm homeless or rich, I'm going to look like a black Masa Saito, lol.
Marking for: Asuka
