Very very average match.

***1/2
How the fuck did Marufuji get the win...Especially after the top rope Croyts Wrath and Hadouken...
I like Kenny Omega but the HADOUKEN is a fucking stupid move. I'd refuse to sell it if I were a wrestler. And i'd probably respond with a Tenryu style punch to the face if he tried it anyways.

I'd say its probably Hash's best match (although the '94 IWGP defense against Hase fucking owns too) and the best post split All Japan match with ease.

Misawa vs Chono probably ** 3/4 from me, solid but not great.

I haven't watched a lot of joshi, but my all-time favorite is :

*THE 1st MATCH JWP WOMEN'S PRO-WRESTLING: -THANK YOU, GODDESS OF PRO-WRESTLING! (PURORESU-NO KAMISAMA, ARIGATOU!) -8 WOMEN TAG MATCH
Dynamite Kansai & Hikari Fukuoka & Candy Okutsu & Fusayo Nochi vs Devil Masami & Mayumi Ozaki & Cuty Suzuki & Hiromi Yagi

I rated it for **** 1/2. That match had place at WPM Bridge of Dreams Dome Spring Full-Blown 2-04-95 event, which I can recommend.

Whats yours thoughts & match star ratings for this years G1 Climax ?

You're talking about a company where people sell for blow up dolls.

It's not just DDT where Omega uses it though.

Sure, I guess you could get away with using it for PWG because the company is based on good wrestling and comedy but there's absolutely no reason for Omega using it in ROH.

I agree, it's perfect for DDT and fine for PWG. And I don't think I've ever seen him use it as anything other than a transitional double palm strike in ROH except against Richards at COTC, which I agree kinda killed the match.

I don't, there's no gain in Akiyama vs Kobashi for the title besides 1 good gate in the Budokan. They still could do that match with no title on the line and it would still draw big.

Besides, nobody knows if Kobashi is capable of a big main event singles match (it's been 4 years since his last one?). And if he only has 1 more big match in him, it should be saved for a paasing the torch kinda deal with Go Shiozaki.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

I used to HATE when Omega used the Hadouken, but since he changed how he hits it, I think it's awesome now. Every time he used it in his matches at this year's BOSJ, it looked sick.

re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)

The star ratings are not the Meltzer type of ratings, this is my Netflix ratings on whether I liked the match or not. * for hating a match and ***** for loving the match.

Rikidozan vs. Masahiko Kimura [JWA – 12.22.1954] ***
This is a very important match and a fascinating one to watch. A portion of the beginning is a bit of a hype package as we see both competitors preparing for the bout and the audience filing in to watch. I love how the match begins with some polite wrestling and they take their time as the original plan was for them to go to a time limit but it then quickly turns into a shoot.

Rikidozan vs. Lou Thesz [JWA – 10.7.1957] ****
One of, if not the most important match in the early history of puroresu. This is the match with the one-hour time limit and is the best match from these two that I’ve seen. The opening minutes of the video that I have of this match is of both men training for this match, Lou Thesz arriving in Tokyo to meet his opponent and an impressive parade in the streets of Tokyo for the father of puroresu, Rikidozan. These men were treated like royalty. This match also drew an 87 rating which is a mind-boggling rating to this day. I was a bit worried as it is 53 years old, if the match would be entertaining or not but I really enjoyed it. It’s essential viewing for anyone who wants to see historically important matches.

Rikidozan vs. Lou Thesz [JWA – 10.13.1957] ****
Some more great hype footage before this shorter, livelier rematch from the record breaker the week earlier. Fantastic mat work all around. There’s a surprising amount of crowd heat that is garnered by Thesz. I might like this one slightly more then their hour-long bout as this has more heat. The brawl at the end is fantastic.
