Actually, i have seen it already and it was genius. Especially the rather unexpected lariat-finish (i though kobashi would use the hammer here)

So I just watched Kenta Kobashi vs. Jun Akiyama (12/23/00) and I have to say it was amazing. It had all the awesome stiff stuff that I expected but the story it told was incredible. I'm glad I really knew what the Burning Hammer was all about going into this or I don't think I would have appreciated the amazing ending.

Akiyama went after the arm of Kobashi. It started with a painful looking drop on the guardrail early on and they didn't do much more for a while. It wasn't until Kobashi took the same bump a second time that his arm really started to bother him. Now someone with an injured right arm would normally avoid lariats and other strikes like that but not a badass like Kobashi. You could see the look of pain on his face everytime he hit a strike or a lariat but he kept at it because that's his game. Akiyama did a great job of going after the arm and weakening Kobashi any other way that he could. Kobashi managed to avoid any arm submissions that would have forced him to tap out.

Now the ending is one of the best that I ever remember seeing. Kobashi lets out a battle cry and hits a nearly decapitating lariat. But Akiyama kicks out. So what does he do? He does it AGAIN. At this point I'm thinking the match is over and if Kobashi hits another lariat his arm will just fall off. But Akiyama kicks out again. I don't know if it was because Kobashi was weakened or if Akiyama was just that tough but Kobashi just couldn't put him away. At this point I had no idea what Kobashi could possibly do to get the win and I was expecting a comeback from Akiyama. That didn't happen. Once Kobashi put him on the top rope I knew something special was happening. Burning Hammer. Match over.

This might be one of my favorite Puro matches out of the limited stuff I've seen. It had the crazy stiff chops and strikes and people getting suplexed on their head but it had some of the best story telling I've ever seen.
****3/4

That rating might be me being a complete puro noob though. But hey Meltzer gave it ****1/4.....

1st EVER GHC HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH [2001-04-15 at.Tokyo Ariake Colosseum]
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Yoshihiro Takayama - *** 1/2+. Great, great chemistry between two awesome workers, nice stiff kicks from Takayama and sick elbows from Misawa. Takayama should have done win that title~!

GHC HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE [2001-05-18 at.Hokkaido Sports Center]
Mitsuharu Misawa (v1) vs. Akira Taue - ***. Good match, but I personally not a fan of Taue. He was great in the 90s with Kawada as Holy Demon Army, but he lost it in the 00s.

Agreed with Leglock. I'll take Jumbo/Tenryu/Misawa era All Japan over KENTA/Marufuji/Shiozaki/Sugi era NOAH anyday. Most of the really good NOAH stuff is pre 2004 anyways.
