Dan Kroffat & Doug Furnas vs. Kenta Kobashi & Tsuyoshi Kikuchi - AJPW 25.05.1992

I dare you to try and find any match with a crowd quite like this. Fuck me. From the moment the bell rings and Kobashi starts laying in with chops the crowd just go ape shit and gobble up absolutely everything Kobashi & Kikuchi throw at them. You know when Kikuchi's dropkicks at the get go make the crowd go fucking crazy you're gonna be in for a rollercoatser of a ride and you best make sure you've got your seatbelt on for this ride.

Can-ams are fucking awesome in this one too btw. Obviously the focus is all around the crowd with the babyface team of Kobashi and Kikuchi but Kroffat and Furnas play up to the crowd just as well as the heels in the situation. It's almost like Kroffat and Furnas are Al Qaeda leaders who have decided to invade All Japan and are gonna fucking blow everyone inside the arena up if they win. There power is immense and it's a beaty to watch but for such big powerful men they have another fucking weapon of mass destruction. These fuckers have bloody agility too. The iranians can fuck off with their nuclear weapons. They could probably invade this arena and the crowd would laugh them out of the front door where they came in shortly before Kobashi chops the skin completely off their chests. Your nuclear missiles and weapons of mass destruction aint got nothing on Can-ams destructive combination of immense power and decieving agility though.

And thus when the Japaneese crowd realise that two terrorists have invaded they suddenly realise that if their boys dont win then they're all gonna die and that aint what they want. It doesn't matter how much the two terrorists in the blue trunks hold their heroes back they just erupt for every moment of offense from Kobashi and Kikuchi. If anyone ever decides to publish a wrestling dictionary and they need a definition for the phrase marking the fuck out, just put All Japan 25/05/1992 or if you publish it in America change it to All Japan 5/25/1992 for their little minds that dont realise nearly every other country uses the correct date format.

They make the crowd at Mania 18 for Rock/Hogan sound like an empty arena match and if you compare the size of the two crowds that's quite the statement but it can be backed up. I don't think any combination of letters can really do justice for how amazing this is not only for the crowd but for the quality of the match too. I could try though. AGJKLMPQINFKGRPMWBOEMGPWGN!!!

As awesome as the crowd is though, the quality of the match backs it up just as much and is just incredible. If I go back to using Rock/Hogan as an example again, the crowd there made an alright match into a really good one. The crowd in this case made an awesome match into an all time classic. Even if it had a pretty average crowd the wrestling was still more than good enough to make it a genuinly brilliant wrestling match.

If ya want me stick a star rating on this heroes of japan vs terrorists war then really it's impossible to say how much I enjoyed it but apparently if I slap a ***** on it, it means I pretty much I enjoyed the fuck out of that shit, so ....

Not enough Dick Togo in this thread. Pretty sure I was high as a kite when I wrote this a couple months ago. If you don't like cussin', then I advise you work the scroll bar like a motherfucker:


Jushin Liger v Dick Togo (NJPW Skydiving J, British Jr. Heavyweight Title, 6/17/96)

OH, FUCK YEAH! This ROCKED! Like, seriously rocked! Like, rocked harder than a garden shed in a hurricane! Or something! Dick MOTHERFUCKING Togo is king of all rudo junior heavyweights and Liger is pretty much all around king of junior heavyweights – Hell, king of wrestlers of all weights – and that nifty little match-up on paper makes for a fucking WHIP ASS little match-up in execution, I’ll tell ya. No, really, I’M TELLIN’ YA!

The main theme of this is Dick’s desire to out-dickhead Liger, but you just DO NOT FUCK with Jushin Liger – he WILL fucking kill you. Togo ain’t no candyass, though, and takes all of his hefty little frame and puts it to good use – throwing it at Liger like a big ol’ ball of ass-kicking, goatee-sporting jelly, hitting the PHAT ASS tope that puts any tope from any wrestler not name Hijo Del Santo to shame before DDT’ing king Jush’ right on the concrete. This is the first reason why McMahon can suck it for turning Togo into a lackey for a guy that hacks off pornstars’ dicks, and the second reason is the positively rib-crumbling double stomp off the second rope that should by all rights kill a motherfucker. Liger chimes in with reason number 765 as to why he’s the ruler of the farking universe by selling the ribs like the fucking KING that he always is, doing that whole eyeballs-popping-out-of-the-sockets sell that he manages to do so well despite wearing a friggin’ mask. Liger transitions into his run on offence by hitting the monkey flip that Togo takes so nicely before breaking his head with a Koppo kick and a hellish release German suplex. Then he slam dunks him with a powerbomb that’s almost Benoit levels of stiffness and everybody is reminded of the simple fact they should’ve already known beforehand anyway – do not fuck with Jushin Thunder Liger.

Liger’s whole stretch on offence here is just IMMACULATE in the way he blends his selling together with the general theme of dickheadedness since nobody out-dicks Liger with the throwback to Liger/Samurai from the ’92 BOSJ final in that Liger is asserting himself here as he did then, only this time he’s proving the point that he’s more surly and badass and fucking tremendous than the surliest most badass bully on the motherfucking continent of anywhere. Back then he was pissed off beyond imagine; now he’s obviously grown because he can still whoop a fool’s ass, but he takes the time to bust out a freaking Hogan hand-clasp-to-the-ear pose just to ram home the point of “I’m Jushin Liger – I’m better than whoever the fuck I say I’m better than.”

He really works the arm like a fiend here, ripping and tearing at it and throwing it into stuff like it belonged to someone that pissed him off. Togo screams like a man that needs some sweet mercy (which is how it fucking SHOULD be done, baby) so Liger gives him a reprieve by letting him keep his arm for a couple minutes while he ties him up in the corner and gives him a running Koppo kick to the cranium. “I done told you, boy; I am not to be fucked with!” Liger absolutely knocks the SHIT out of Togo with a single palm thrust that is to be rewound and re-watched several times in order to really comprehend the level of chin-splitting force behind it, and Liger sells the damn hand in this subtle little way that is reason number 766 as to why he rules all that is good in life.

He goes back to trying to take Togo’s arm home with him, but Dick manages to work himself an opening and goes up top, only Liger gives him another palm thrust that’s even MORE unconscionable than the last one and it sends him flying to the floor. Liger hits a big time plancha and then poses some more like a cocky dick before killing Togo with a fisherman buster. I’ll point out here that Liger’s constant going back to the limb-work (in this case, the arm) is what really pushes him over the great/super-great threshold more often than not, because the junior heavyweight style is based around either dives (pre-1996) or skull-mashing moves (post-1996) that it leaves the participants susceptible to blowing off limb-work or just dropping it in favour of hitting highspots. Liger manages to get everything in as effectively as possible and come Hell or high water is gonna make his opponents look like a million bucks in doing it.

Togo manages to find himself a breather again by backdropping Liger out to the floor, then hitting a BOSS as all Hell Tope con Hilo from inside the ring to the floor that lands him right on Liger’s fuggin’ head! Dick Togo is a stout little man that will crush a regular man’s skull by landing on it from ten feet in the air and don’t you forget it! Liger proves YET AGAIN why he’s better than everything ever by catching Togo attempting a running Hurricanrana or something off the apron by killing the bejeebers out of him with a powerbomb on the floor. Liger’s dickhead instincts tell him that he should mock the Michinoku Pro pee head by going back into the ring to play to the crowd before stepping back out and purposefully dragging Togo off the mats onto the exposed concrete so he can kill even MORE of the bejeebers out of him with an even more hellish powerbomb. Then he FLAIR STRUTS!

Togo’s just about dead enough for Liger’s tastes and seems content to finish things with a Kimura, but Togo reaches the ropes and that prompts Liger to lay another beatdown with a German suplex, which Dick reverses by kicking Liger in the grapes as he transitions into a powerbomb and two PHAT ASS top rope sentons. No dice on the nearfall so he goes for another which Liger moves out of the way of – saving his already demolished ribs in the process – and goes up top himself where he hits a missile dropkick to the injured arm Togo’s holding onto the middle rope with, which is just a GREAT spot. Togo reaches the ropes to break the cross-arm-breaker, but the advantage he managed to carve himself out through the low blow is slipping fast, and it would seem even faster when Liger gears up for the running Shotei (palm thrust) lariat. Togo manages to hang in there by dropping Liger on his face with a drop toe hold before scoring a nearfall with a La Majistral cradle, but now Liger is REALLY pissed and goes about murdering Togo with two fisherman busters – one from the top rope. Togo sells the top rope buster really awesomely by landing like a sack a potatoes, kinda going limp as soon as he hits the canvas as if he might actually be dead. Liger puts this baby out to pasture by smashing Togo’s teeth down his WWF-bound throat the good ol’ Shotei lariat way, and I’m thinking that’s maybe my favourite signature strike ever in wrestling because it looks just INCREDIBLY sore and hurty since it catches whoever’s taking it right in the fuggin’ jaw at about 300 miles a minute.

This wasn’t ever going to be anything short of good, so I’m not really sure why I’m surprised at just how good it was, but there ya go; proof that even the highest of expectations can be crushed by a Shotei lariat and a fat man Tope con Hilo. Liger’s the best ever, Togo’s INSANELY underrated, and if you’re only familiar with his pathetic run in the States (Vince McMahon and his cretinous bookers can blow me sideways for jobbing the entire Kaientai DX stable out to the fucking Oddities, btw. The FUCKING ODDITIES! GOLGA, fer chrissakes!), then you need to check this out in jig time. This is a whole big bunch of fucking bossiness and YOU WANT ALLLLL OF IT! Cross my heart. ****1/4

See ya in another 6 months.

That long? Shit, it usually gets to me in a fortnight. Honestly don't remember having to wait any longer than 20 days to get an order. Might depend on how iften you order, or used to order. Last year I practically made an order every couple weeks. And I'm talking 10 discs a pop or something. Haven't bought anything from IVP in ages, though (been using SlamBamJam since I've been buying Lucha), so who knows how long it'd take if I made one now.

Back a little earlier than I thought .

Kenta Kobashi v Yoshihiro Takayama (NOAH, 4/25/04)
- Last 15 minutes might be the best 15 minutes of any match this decade. I've watched this three times in the last year or so, and the first ten minute spell always seems a little... pedestrian, I guess, but really, that final quarter hour is just *that* good. There's always a sort of mini-story going on in all the big NOAH singles matches of the era, especially during Kobashi's title reign, where you've got one guy's signature strike going up against the other guy's. It was Kobashi's chops against Misawa's elbows in 3/1/03; it was Kobashi's chops against Akiyama's knees in 7/10/04; here it's still Kobashi's chops, but he's stacking them up against pretty much all of Takayama's strikes. He'll kick you, knee you, elbow you, and straight up closed-fist-punch you right square in the face. He's also quite the big son of a bitch that's not afraid to heel it up, which is why I dig him a helluva lot. Things pick up big time when Takayama decides he's had enough of this chopping bullshit and goes about trying to rip Kobashi's arm off. Kobashi sells it as well as you'd think. There's a really great moment out on the floor where Kobashi gets whipped into the guard rail and rushes right out so he can murder Tak with a lariat. Problem is, his chopping arm is his lariat arm, so he basically does as much damage to himself as he does to Takayama. Then he tries crawl back into the ring, but Tak ain't havin' none of that shit and goes about dropping him with a German on the floor. Kobashi's holding onto the rope and struggling on the apron while Takayama WILL NOT be denied his German suplex. Eventually he gets it, Kobashi lands on his head, and at this point people start to think "So, he's working with one arm, just got landed on his head, and has the knees of an 87 year old woman. Shit, he might actually lose this time!" Finishing stretch is as good as you'd expect, full of white hot death and all that good stuff. Kobashi hitting multiple lariats with the bad wing will no doubt grind some peoples' gears, but Hell, it's Kobashi -- you gotta know he's gonna "fight through the pain" and use all the fighting spirit his crazy ass can muster. Besides, he sells it well enough in a "this is gonna hurt you more than me" kinda way, and Takayama's too preoccupied with dropping him on his head and punching him in the face to go back to the arm anyway, so I'm not about to complain. And I'm the kinda guy that usuall would. Finish is perfect. The reaction to Kobashi pumping his fist and signalling for the moonsault is insane. I'd probably put this in my top 15 of the decade. It's no wonder why Takayama is practically a brainbuster away from being a drolling mess these days. ****1/2


Mitsuharu Misawa & Yoshinari Ogawa v KENTA & Naomuchi Marufuji (NOAH, 4/25/04)
- Ogawa is such a piece a shit. You know that guy that walks around the club slapping girls' asses because he's buddies with the bouncers and knows that they've got his back, for some reason, should someone try to punch him in his smug little face? The kinda guy that makes you wonder how the fuck such an insufferable little jackass comes to have friends like that, or better yet, why they haven't dropped him themselves already? Well, that's Ogawa. He's all cocky and generally acts like a douchebag right out the gate here, spitting water at Marufuji, poking their eyes, slapping them, and standing on them after Misawa drops them with some elbows. It's basically an extended squash for the first twenty minutes, with the young guys getting their shots in but eventually being floored by Misawa's trusty ol' elbow. All roads lead back to the elbow, folks. Ogawa picks his spots to come in, mostly when there's easy pickings, and goes about being a little shithead in his own way. He's actually quite great in that sense, but, as strange as it sounds, he needed to stooge some more. I know, I know, the idea of anybody other than SUWA stooging in the land of eternal stoicness that is NOAH probably sounds a little cooky, but he's pretty much the closest thing to being NOAH's answer to Bobby Eaton that you're likely to get, so why not go all the way with it? All of his bullshit and shenanigans through the match was just begging for a big revenge spot from the youngsters... but it never really came. Still, the lil' juniors wind up looking as good as one could hope for by the end, even in defeat (there was no way they were pinning the tag champs at this stage, let's be honest), and Marufuji even kicks out of Misawa's running elbow smash for a terrific nearfall. Naturally he dies after an Emerald Flowsion, but kicking out of everything the champs could throw at him -- and ditto for KENTA, btw -- beforehand put them over about as effectively as possible without them actually winning. As a totally pointless aside, Marufuji looks eerily like a girl I used to go to school with. It's completely shattered my world, because I saw her again a couple weeks ago and she looks legit *smoking*. Now I'll never be able to remember her the same way again. Not sure what that says about me, actually. ****1/4

I would say no to all of those matches, but I am a wrestling snob and don't watch much under ****, so take it as it's worth. They all have there moments, but nothing is a must see.

They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.
