Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread

My bad AmEagle. I didn't completely read ur post. It said WOC to GNow. I would say the #1 show in my opinion would be War of the Wire 2. I've only seen three matches but they were all good.

Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread

How do people rate Akiyama/Marufugi from the 9/9/06 show?

I watched it a few nights ago and was very impressed as it is the first puro match I have seen in full. Just trying to see if I can expect better from puro wrestling or if that match was as good as it gets which wouldn't be a surprise at all. Awsome match with a great ending.

I thought it was a little bland, but still deserved 4 stars for the quality of the psychology.

Unholy Dragon has a different take on it, he gave it ****3/4 i think

Spotty Wrestlers and Spotty Wrestling has made Pro Wrestling worse. For the most part, people cant get the crowd all riled up without killing themselves in the ring. Im sure the fans respect them and say thank you, but they will not be there to push around someones wheel chair later in life.

I did indeed. My long and detailed review follows:

Quote:
Naomi Marufuji vs. Jun Akiyama. I just finished watching it and I have to say that was the most brilliantly worked match I've seen this year and probably the best GHC Title match in years (possibly excluding Taue's run since I fucking love Taue)

The match has such an awesome dynamic with Marufuji being the underdog yet getting 70% of the offense. The story lies in the fact that despite all the offense Marufuji gets, Akiyama still dominates the match. Look at the first ten minutes or so. Marufuji spends a solid seven minutes destroying Akiyama's knee and yet the backdrop over the top onto the ramp nearly puts him out. With one move, Akiyama did more damage than seven minutes of Marufuji's work. This runs through the entire match and it's glorious.

Both men have a clear message throughout. Akiyama isn't taking Marufuji seriously and tries to show him that he's just not on his level, hitting him with a bunch of big moves and then refusing to capitalize, just to show him who's the boss here. Marufuji gets the message, which is why he hits the Shiranui onto the guardrail. It works both in doing some damage and telling Akiyama that he *will* respect Marufuji or he'll pay the price.

Things get really good when the true bombs come out. Marufuji puts together a nice string of big moves, ending with the Shiranui for a close two count. He's got Akiyama sweating but once again, all it takes is the Exploder into the corner followed by a disgusting running knee to put Marufuji on the brink of defeat. Two moves outdid Marufuji's best efforts and now he's in some serious trouble. Especially when Akiyama nails that vicious running knee on the outside which nearly gets him counted out.

Once Marufuji gets inside, Akiyama goes to the Akiyama Lock. This may not seem like much, but this is the move he beat KOBASHI with. He's not fooling around anymore. When Marufuji refuses to tap, he gets him up and hits an Exploder for a close two count. Akiyama gets a little flustered, but it's no big deal. He simply moves up to the Sternness Dust Alpha. Except it doesn't do it either.

Now Akiyama is getting frustrated. He just busted out one of his big finishers and it still didn't put Marufuji away and despite the fact he's weathered Marufuji's best, he's running out of tricks as well. In desperation, he goes for the Avalanche Exploder but Marufuji counters to the Avalanche Shiranui which buys him some time.

Ultimately though, that's all it does. Akiyama recovers at the same time he does and the looks on both their faces tell the story. The Avalanche Shiranui was Marufuji's last hope at putting Akiyama away. Jun has this match in the bag and they both know it, but damn if Marufuji won't keep trying. This is where his moment of brilliance comes as he stops playing Akiyama's game of exchanging big moves and uses the Junior style which brought him here in the first place. He ducks and counters everything Akiyama can throw at him before sneaking in a roll up for the pin and the title.

The finish truly is the icing on the cake, as Marufuji finally realizes that he can't keep Akiyama down, but he only needs to win, not to beat him. It's a tribute to the smart work by Marufuji throughout, as well as Akiyama's refusal to take him seriously and the amused look of respect Jun gives him serves as proof of that. Naomi Marufuji is the GHC Champion and we have a front runner for match of the year. ****3/4

THIS MAN SPEAKS TRUTH!

WWE should do an angle where Nick Hogan hits Stone Cold with a car
so they can set up the Hogan/Austin dream match that will never happen

Unscripted? This was one of ROHs earliest shows from 2002 and Unscripted II was held in early 2006!

Did you mean Unified??
