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

The Vader-Inoki match never gets old for me, probably wouldn't make my top 5 though. In fact I haven't seen a lot from eighties New Japan so my list is nineties heavy.

Chris Benoit vs. Great Sasuke 4/16/94
Liger vs Sano 1/31/90
Liger vs Ohtani 2/9/97
Tenryu vs Hashimoto G1 98
Kawada & Fuchi vs Nagata & Iizuka 12/14/00

I always loved the Hashimoto-Liger match too, not sure what the general consensus is on it. My judgement might be clouded by those two being two of my favourites.

That's pretty all over the place but I haven't seen a lot of the stuff people love from New Japan so its just from what I have seen. I've been meaning to get started on the stuff from the eighties too.

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

I'd probably go with this for my top 5 as far as 1990+ goes. Need to bone up on the Inoki era.

Liger vs Sano - 1/30/90
Liger vs Sasuke II - 7/??/94 (J-Cup follow up)
Hashimoto vs Hase - 12/14/94
Ohtani vs Ultimo Dragon - J-Crown Semi Finals (8/2/96)
Kawada/Fuchi vs Nagata/Iizuka 12/14/00

Big love for The entire 94 J-Cup, Hashimoto vs Tenryu G-1 98, Hash vs Liger, Hashimoto vs Choshu 96 G-1, Vader/Inoki and the Mutoh/Chono G-1 91 Final

Thanks for the lists guys.

But how dare you not know that Sasuke/Liger on the 8th of July. That's my only New Japan five star match by the way.

I just didn't remember the day it was but I remember the match. ***** too by the way. Vader/Inoki 1/4/96, I believe its a part of Inoki retirement countdown. Vader fucks the chin up pretty bad with a German. Its glorious to see.

Go watch Hase/Hashimoto!

No, the Vader/Inoki match i'm thinking of is about 10-12 minutes long if I remember correctly.

Yeah its part of Inoki's countdown, it's basically Vader destroying Inoki for the whole match. I've seen some people hate on the ending but it didn't bother me at all. Maybe check out Vader-Hansen from 2/10/90 too.

Hashimoto-Hase and the G1 with Choshu would be in my top ten. Probably Hash-Takada too.

A more recent match, well not really recent I guess, I love is the Kawada-Sasaki Dome match, one of my favourite matches from 2000.

EDIT: That Vader Inoki match is definetly longer than 4 minutes.

It was probably a clip job then. Thanks. The only thing I remember liking in the match was the German Suplex:

I remember seeing that Kawada/Sasaki match on Yt, and neevr watching it . Will do soon.

The Hase/Hash 93 G-1 Climax match seriously owned too. I forgot about it. Hase had a pretty great match with Chono that night too.

Black Tiger v Wild Pegasus (6/11/96)
Yoshiaki Fujiwara v Riki Choshu (6/9/87)
Bob Backlund v Antonio Inoki (7/27/78)

No real order. Stuff like Hashimoto/Hase, Hashimoto/Fujiwara, Hashimoto/Tenryu, Liger/Samurai, Liger/Sasuke x2, Kawada-Fuchi/Nagata-Iizuka, Kawada/Sasaki, Murdoch-Adonis/Inoki-Fujinami, Inoki/Murdoch, Inoki/Fujiwara, Inoki/Robinson, Fujinami/Madea, Muta/Chono, Hashimoto/Choshu, the 3/26/86 New Japan v UWF elimination match, Sasuke/Benoit, Liger/Sano (8/10/89) etc. are all good shouts. Probably forgetting some as well. Haven't worked my way through all of the New Japan 80s set yet so there's bound to be more on that as well.
