Re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)

Great write up MF83. I've watched the 1/4/99, 10/11/99 and 4/7/00 matches and enjoyed all of them (the 1/4/99 more for the surreal imagery and atmosphere of Hashimoto being mauled than actual quality). Hashimoto excels at the destructive violence and managing to channel his charisma and aura/presence into magnifying his matches and giving them this energetic and frenzied atmosphere: so sticking him with Ogawa who had the credentials to believably overwhelm Hashimoto and build to all of his desperation counters and comebacks was a truly magical chemistry. I remember actually being genuinly bothered at the finishes to 10/11/99 and 4/7/00, not so much in terms of how it ended from a quality standpoint, but more because I was so genuinly heartbroken that we didn't get the ending we truly deserved on the back of Hashimoto's beautiful and heroic performances against the merciless and frightful Ogawa.
