Just got a big order from IVP so I'm finally catching up on Puro from this year starting with the NJPW Dome show.
NJPW Wrestle Kingdom III
Averno, Jado, and Gedo vs. Mistico, Ryusuke Taguchi, and Prince Devitt***3/4
I thought this was a great opener,Mistico vs Averno is always gold and they got a great reaction from the crowd. Mistico hit three awesome dives before Devitt hit a crazy dive to the floor. Cool ending too.
Jushin Thunder Liger and Takuma Sano vs. Wataru Inoue and Koji Kanemoto**1/2
Pretty disappointing considering it celebrated Liger's 20th Anniversary. Sano didn't really gel with Kanemoto or Inoue and just hit spinning kicks and his double stomp. I did like the ending though.
Yujiro and Naito vs. Shelley and Chris Sabin***1/2
Really fun match,Sabin and Shelly hit all their stuff and looked really crisp.NO LIMIT looked good too.
Low Ki vs. Tiger Mask***1/4
Another entertainig match.Maybe a little short but never dull. Ki was great in this but the crowd didn't seem to get excited for Tiger Mask
Riki Choshu, Chono, Kurt Angle, and Kevin Nash vs. Giant Bernard, Iizuka, Ishii, and Karl Anderson**
This was just weird. Much too short for an eight man match too. Crowd was into Nash vs Bernard and there was a good finish.
Yuji Nagata vs. Masato Tanaka ****3/4
This was my match of the night. I'm pretty sure I liked this more than most.Just a war from bell to bell with no down time and tons of near falls.I put this ahead of their match at Destruction.
Manabu Nakanishi vs. Jun Akiyama **3/4
I'm a huge Akiyama fan but htis didn't really grab me.Match was fine when Jun was in control,less so when Nakanishi took over.Not horrible or anything just average.
Togi Makabe and Yano vs. “Team 3D” Brother Ray and Brother Devon *1/2
They tried hard but I hated this.The weapon shots came off as lame and overall pretty bad.
Shinsuke Nakamura and Hirooki Goto vs. Mitsuharu Misawa and Takashi Sugiura****1/2
This was the most popular match from the card and I see why. Misawa vs Nak was great but Sug was the star of the match.Goto wasn't overly impressive but what he did,he did well.All action with great reactions from the crowd.
Keiji Mutoh vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi****
Not sure how popular this match was on here,it got mixed reviews everywhere else,but I liked it alot.Muta worked on the leg and kept me interested for the whole time.Tana sold it well,hit all his stuff and the crowd added a lot to it.
Overall I thought this was the best Dome show since Destiny.I only hated one match and though there was some average parts overall I loved it.
