Lazy sunday boys, gotta love em after long weekends. Stayed in, smoked a little, and watched a shitload of DG, including Infinity 60 and 61 that I got last week. Heres my ratings and some thoughts where applicant.
Infinity #60, 2/4 Hakata, 2/12 SITE KOBE, 2/23 Korakuen, 3/3 Osaka
1. Cyber Kong, Magnitude Kishiwada vs. Ryo Saito, Genki Horiguchi ** - angle match, HUGE turn from Genki post-match
2. Open the Triangle Gate: Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino, Gamma vs. CIMA, Susumu Yokosuka, Matt Sydal ***1/4 - Regular MO'z match, sets up Sydal vs. Yoshino
3. Open the Brave Gate: Matt Sydal vs. Masato Yoshino ***1/2 - Great stuff and one of the best DG matches so far this year.
4. Open the Dream Gate: Don Fujii vs. Masaaki Mochizuki ***3/4-**** - No story but hella nearfalls and exciting as fuck. DG MOTY so far I'd say. If this goes down in ROH in NYC and goes, say, 20 minutes it gets ***** talk.
5. Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fujii, Yasushi Kanda vs. Jushin Thunder Lyger, Jado, Gedo *** - Decent stuff but CTU hardly ever brings their A Game to DG.
6. CIMA, Susumu Yokosuka vs. Cyber Kong, Cyber Gang ***
7. Open the Triangle Gate: Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino, Gamma vs. Anthony W. Mori, BxB Hulk, Super Shisa ***1/4 - Fun little closeout for PosHEARTS.
8. Naniwa-shiki Elimination Match: Ryo Saito, Susumu Yokosuka, CIMA, Anthony W. Mori vs. Masato Yoshino, Genki Horiguchi, Gamma, Cyber Gang ***1/4 - Genki is their hottest heel in forever.
Infinity #61, 3/4 Nagoya, 3/13 Korakuen
1. Akira Tozawa, Taku Iwasa vs. Danshoku Dino, Muscle Sakai - Comedy.
2. Dragon Kid vs. Masato Yoshino *** - Kidou is clearly a little ...ty, but still entertaining.
3. Don Fujii, Masaaki Mochizuki vs. BxB Hulk, Jushin Thunder Lyger **1/4 - Boring stuff, really disjointed, I couldn't get into this.
4. Magnitude Kishiwada vs. BxB Hulk *** - Fun in a normal, speed vs. power way.
5. IJ Tag: CIMA, Susumu Yokosuka vs. Jado, Gedo ***1/4 - WOW! Great heel vs. Face match. Jado and Gedo were great, actually showing personality and not trying to be all flashy but just being scumbag heels. Finally they find a role to play, though I haven't seen them look good in their other recent stuff.
6. Genki Horiguchi, Gamma, Magnitude Kishiwada vs. Ryo Saito, Susumu Yokosuka, CIMA ***1/2 - Awesome, minimal interferance, flowed great, got time (12-14 minutes), great little match here. Top 5 for DG this year I'd say.
7. Open the Triangle Gate: Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino, Gamma vs. Ryo Saito, Dragon Kid, Anthony W. Mori **3/4 - Way t6oo disjointed, random spots, interferance, plodding, just can't hold up at all to the previous match. Still decent in the DG way, but c'mon.
HUGE reccomendation for 60, and I'll try and up from stuff from 61 but nothing to search out.
