Has anyone seen the September UK Dragon Gate shows yet? Live reviews said both events were pretty awesome, so I just wondered how they translated to DVD.

*puts up flame shield*

Jushin Liger v Shinjiro Otani (NJPW 9/2/97)
--The fuck was Otani doing here? I lost sight of how good Liger is over the past few months, and I thought he was great here trying to put on a hell of a match, but Otani fucking sucked for a bit of it. Liger was going for the leg early on, and Otani ignored it, no sold it, and tried to get every bit of offence in himself. Liger was awesome, bringing Otani to the corner while Otani was sitting and dropping a dozen knees on Otani's knee. Two seconds later Otani was on offence and using SPIN-KICKS of all things. He tried to completely dominate the next bits of the match and was going for the arm, then the leg all in the space of a few minutes. The way Liger sold the knee for no more than two seconds was great, yet Otani goes to an armbar. Liger keeps going for that knee too, like "sell you fuck". otani just looked real stubborn and almost wanting to not look weak at all. Some of the exchanges were pretty nifty themselves, but it felt structered like a mess at this point. His domination section with the arm was actually pretty damn good, Liger's a top seller ever and I give a lot of props to him, but Otani seemed to be less sucky by then. He tries to get in offence at times but Otani just won't allow it. Otani had a NASTY armbar on too which I thought was his highlight of the match. he was grinding his knuckles into the elbow joint and I had hope that he *wasn't* trying to ruin the match. Liger actually gets some control in and slaps the hell out of Otani's cheek a few times. Just to make sure Oatni is short of breathing he dives on his sorry arse and powerbombs him on the outside. Otani throws him to barricade after that then dives on him himself. WHAT??? Otani be sucky part 2. They had a good ending stretch but because of the rest of the match I just didn't care about it. If there's something I'm missing here liek a backstroy or anything else than can soemone let me know? If not I didn;t think this was that good at all and it'll be a while before I bother to watch it again.

WK5 was pretty average in fairness I thought. Largely down to there being too many matches, even on a 5 hour show, and some big matches not getting enough time to develop into anything better than good.

Quick thoughts:
The 8 man dark match was a nothing match. 2nd one was better. Omega worked really hard to have a good match, great showing. Taichi looked abysmal. Completely awful.

The 3 way opener was fun. Beer Money weren't over at all. Best match on the undercard for sure.

Was really looking forward to CMLL tag but it fell flat. Dorada's botch early on hurt the match and killed the crowd a bit for it. Seemed really badly structured and far, far from smooth. Ending seemed to catch everyone by suprise. Shame cause I was really looking forward to this.

Tenzan/Iizuka was good for what it was, I just didn't care too much about it. Good brawling and logic attack from both guys. Tenzan sold his neck really well.

RVD/Tano was bad. Seemed like they were trying to use every weapon they could find rather than have a match together. RVD was over.

Nagata/Suzuki was one of the better matches on the card. Good hate and exactly what I was expecting at this point on the card. As per usual Nagata has a really good match.

Ibushi/Devitt was alright. Nice to see a high profile juniors match at the dome but then I thought they could have done better. Devitt and Ibushi throwing a top rope brainbuster and 450 out there in the middle of the match soooo randomly was annoying. Especially when it didn't get a reaction and they just carried on with the match as if it didn't happen. Don't think junior matches really work without a hot crowd and they weren't that here, or all show bar the main event I thought. Borash's intro for this was flat out embarassing. One of the best things to come out of the show was that TNA looked like total amateurs with the botchy announcer and awful champ.

The NOAH tag was a massive dissapointment. Okada didn't look good. Botched a few times too. Each guy seemed more interested in knocking the other guy off the apron rather than the guy that was in the ring. Didn't help that it only went 12 minutes but I'm glad it didn't go any longer actually.

Hardy/Naito was even worse than I'd imagined. Hardy got zero reaction. Just confusion. They showed a still shot of his belt during the match. Fucking embarassment for TNA but hey they did this, fucking halfwits. Don't see what's so special about Naito. Obviosuly not judging him on this match but he hasn't had a stand out match yet for me.

Shiozaki/Nakamura started off brilliantly with the leg work from Go but then Nakamura's selling of it was inconsistent, especially when he was on offense. His screaming to sell Go's offense was good though, Benoit esque. Could have been a MOTYC if it had as long as the main but was too short. Shame.

Makabe/Tanaka was great. The table spots were awesome and played off the build up really well. Tanaka's table bump looked insane. Annoyed that they didn't finish the match after that, even more so when they had Makabe just do a few more moves after and finish it anyway. That's the only negative I could think of for it. 2nd best match on the show.

Main event felt like a main event to a big show and both men really brought it. They made Kojima's lariat look great even though Tana kicked out of it twice. Tana looked like a fucking megastar too. Evidently benefited from having more time than the other matches.

Overall not a bad show or anything but for 5 hours viewing time you expect something a bit more from the dome show given the roll that New Japan have been on. Ibushi/Devitt was about ***1/4, around ***1/2 for Nagata/MiSu, Shiozaki/Nakamura and Tanaka/Makabe. ***3/4 for the main.
