On my continueing quest to work through the NJPW 90s junior scene, (I'm going to do it in chronological order just for the hell of it) I watched:
8/19/90 – IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Title Match: Jushin Liger v Pegasus Kid – Pegasus (Benoit) is the young powerful rookie(ish) who is trying (and succeeding) to hold his own with the top jr in the company, while Liger is trying to get around Benoit’s powerful offence and escape with his title. Benoit’s really great at using simple power moves such as clotheslines and shoulder blocks to stop Liger’s momentum so he can get the advantage and, of course, Liger sells accordingly. Benoit walks out of this as the new IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion after nailing Liger with a guillotine legdrop, ending Liger's 7 month reign and starting what would be an awesome run oversees for the Pegasus Kid. ****
What I've got so far
8/10/89 - Jushin Liger v Naoki Sano (IWGP Jr. Title) ****3/4 (I know it's not the '90s, but it's where I started from dammit)
1/31/90 - Naoki Sano v Jushin Liger (IWGP Jr. Tiitle) *****
8/19/90 - Jushin Liger v Pegasus Kid (IWGP Jr. Title) ****
Next up is Jushin Liger v Owen Hart - Top of the Super Juniors 91, Semi-Final (at least I think it's the semi's).
Not sure how the ref sees Medel slap Fella in the face and not do anything. Medel should have been sentenced to death for that I think. Or made to sign for Tottenham Hotspur and forever have to play fitba with Erik Lamela for the rest of his life.
Chris Hero is on a much higher level than Bosh. Yeah the guy is funny sometimes but I still think he's overrated. He's the Dane Cook of wrestling he says outragous shit but after awhile you just realize he's obnoxious.
I think this statement got lost in the Chikara excitement, but how dare you compare the greatness of Bosh to the joke that is Dane Cook.
On another note, might have to make my fisrt Chikara order and pick up the BO07, I've just been holding off on Chikara because I don't want to have to spend money on another promotion, as PWG and ROH get enough of my money as it is.
Proud supporter of PWG, probably the best wrestling company in the universe. Probably.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
I thought it was pretty solid. Joe-Punk I is worth the 10 bucks alone. I actually didn't like the Scramble that much though. Once it became Cabana/Steel vs. Maff/Whitmer, it began to become a little too much. The scramble went around 35 minutes and thats just too long.
Are we allowed to sell ROH tickets on this forum? I've just upgraded to front row seats and I want to unload the ones I already have...
