Takada was a freaking god at both wrestling and shoot style. He and Hash had some of the best and least talked about matches. Strangely, Maeda is hit or miss with me and I may actually prefer Sayama as a shooter to the Tiger Mask stuff. It's damn close.
Very true.

As for Takada, I love his junior stuff (well, it fell under the junior heavyweight "umbrella", even though it was exactly junior-ish, for the most part) with Hiroshi Hase (another guy that doesn't get enough praise - I know McQueen agrees). Their 2/5/88 match is really fantastic.

Then there's his series with Koshinaka and that ruled as well. They had an exceptional match in 1986 (I'm sure it was August some time... maybe the 5th) and then another really good match on 2/5/87 where Kosh went after Takada's broken fingers. I also enjoyed the tag matches they had involving Mutoh and Fujinami a fair bit as well. I've got one of those on my computer ready to watch, actually.

I like Maeda! Not one of my absolute favourites, but he's a part of one of my favourite puro matches of all time - Maeda/Fujinami from 6/12/86 as part of the NJPW/UWF feud, so that probably counts for something.

And I really should check out more of Sayama as a shooter. His match with Fujiwara from 12/84 was fantastically brutal, but I can't recall seeing any other shoot-style matches involving him. I do like him as the original Tiger Mask a fair bit, though.


GP, I marked when Stryker name-dropped Liger as well I also made sure to point it out in the WWE DVD thread.

Maeda is more hilarious than anything else. He's great in the ring,but I just watch waiting for the sick fuck to stop working and start shooting on people.

On David D's site for you:

Takada vs. Yatsu, Sayama vs. Maeda, Several Fujiawara Super Tiger matches, Maeda vs. Murdoch, Maeda and Takada vs Fujiwara and Yamazaki, Backlund vs. Takada, Backlund vs. Masa Funaki, some Fujiwara Takada, a bunch of fun Yamazaki, Anjoh and more. Catch up on your UWF and UWF-i guys. It's all such great stuff! I still believe there's money to be made on that stuff now.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Upped on David's Site...

An episode of a wrestling-centered TV drama starring Rikidozan. He contends with a young Antinio Inoki, who I can only guess wears lifts, portraying a evil Native American. Inoki refers to himself as "Razor Ramon". A boy learns to defend himself. I cannot fully express the content of this file.


Who cares?

I remember the golden years.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I just wanted to take a quick second to express my love for both the Takada/Super Vader series and Takada's '96 invasion of New Japan. And lets not forget that wonderful HUSTLE promotion.

Takada is pretty damn awesome.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Shark Girl is ok but they really need to bring in Shelerious, maybe for the tag gauntlet and team them up.

Some more covers hopefully for releases this week so I can finally finish Stevens/Strong

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

The FIP cover is pretty awesome.

New Horizon looks slightly better as a cover but that's not saying much, seeing as a poster it just a pile of shit.
