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

Glad you enjoyed it. The mat work in the first fall really is amzing. Damiancito El Guerrero is a fucking *tremendous* wrestler.

FWIW, I watched the When Worlds Collide match on an Eddie set not too long ago, and the 1/7/97 match DESTROYS it. Like, completely. The 10/3/97 trios match is far, FAR better than it as well.

If you want to see a really great Gringos Locos tag, watch the 11/5/93 match when they go up against Santito and Octagon. Smokes the Worlds Collide tag, IMO. I think Eddie is the best wrestler ever, so when I say I think a match smokes one of his most highly pimped matches, you should get an idea of how good I think the other match in question is.

I just don't understand why guys like Bruiser want to 'protect their image' by not selling, yet they get so much flack for not selling anyway. Feels kinds reverse psychological.
I do believe Terry is the Greatest of all time. Guys like Misawa or Flair may have a better catalog of matches but in terms of the little things that make a match give you genuine emotions, no one matches Terry Funk.

I kinda get where Bruiser was going with the whole sandbvagging people issue. The man understood part of his image was being larger than life and seemingly unstoppable. He short changed a lot of people in the ring (but knew well enough to make top guys he respected like Baba look great) but you can't argue the fact that much like Hogan he will have a lasting influence in the sport.

Sorry I haven't been around much but i've been in a bit of a funk (no pun intended given my first issue of the post) with Wrasslin and been boning up on MMA instead but i've been feeling to call to get back to my Puro roots.

Sephy you want to talk about a underpraised Great Gaijin. Dan MOTHERFUCKIN' Kroffat. Sure the excellent Can-Ams vs Kobashi/Kikuchi match gets a load of praise (as it should) but i've yet to see a bad outing by Kroffat/LaFon be it in Japan or his shorrt WWF run. Was the guy a main eventer? No, but he was a damn fine hand.

The thing with Brody is that i don't think anybody would put him over Funk in the first place, so it's not a very fair comparison to use.
I'm also fairly confident that despite all the Brody love around here, most people don't really love him in a wrestler sense as much as they do in a character sense.

It's a bit like going, "Here's this crazy son of a bitch with his wild hair who kicks people's asses and is called 'Bruiser'. How awesome is that?".
Not to say he couldn't bring it in the ring, just that his overall image very much accentuated that.

You'd probably be surprised at the amount of people that call Brody the best brawler ever. That talking point means people tend to put him over guys like Funk and Hansen by default. I doubt anybody would call Brody a better all-around wrestler than either guy, though, so you've got a point.

NJPW Jr. Tag League 1994

Damn, I never realised the great D had a Benoit ban on his site. Makes sense now seeing as I never actually see any Benoit stuff now thinking about it. btw both Benoit/Ohtani vs Sasuke/Eddie matches from the tag league are brilliant.

Nah, i've only seen TUF about 3 times and that was because Spike was running a marathon of season 2 the other week. I don't really give a shit about the Heavyweight Division aside from Minotauro anyways.

Damn Andy now i'm gonna need to watch some more Lucha. And seeing as he's a hot topic these days did Goodhelmet ever finish that Funk set he was making?

It's Cicloncito Ramirez v Damiancito El Guerrero from CMLL (1/7/97). They're minis, but I watched it this morning and it's probably the best match I've ever seen. I'd put it ahead of 6/3/94 and Flair/Steamboat from Clash VI as the best singles match ever. Don't expect too many people here to agree with that, but it kicks the hinder off Misterio/Psicosis from 9/22/95 and I know you loved that. I've never seen any US pro-wrestler work the mat like these two. Not even CLOSE. Damiancito El Guerrero look just about the best wrestler in the history of anything. So yeah, watch it.
I downloaded and watched this yesterday, absolutely awesome stuff, and I've never been a fan of Lucha matches! I don't think as highly of it as Andy (though tbh how many people here will? ), but I did love it a hell of a lot. ****1/4, and I can't wait to watch that trios match that Andy posted too .

McQueen, I asked Andy the same thing the other day, and he said:

"Funk set is his next release after the New Japan one. So it should drop in the next month after he ships out the first batch of New Japan."
