His wrestling skills are so far so good, he can do some amazing shit, but... He's just - boring. Completely unattractive character, as far as I'm concerned.

I agree, he has no character at all, but it's just the fact that every match is exactly the same that bothers me. He is technically great in the ring though, and some of the stuff he does is awesome. I can't remember if he's a good seller or not, but that's because most of his matches are completely unmemorable imo. The only one that sticks out is his match against Omega last year.

I think you think he has the same everytime because this year he has fought Richards 3 times, TAKA 3 times, Ibushi 2 times, KUSHIDA 2 times. As a tag team, 2 times against NRC, 2 times against TAKA & Taichi.

New Japan's junior division is so short.

Yeah I see what you mean, that's probably it to be honest. I feel like I've seen him face Ibushi and Richards a million times in the last few years.

NJPW: New Japan Alive; 04/12/11

1. Karl Anderson & Killer Rabbit Vs Jado & Gedo: **
2. King Fale, Tiger Mask, Ryusuke Taguchi & Tama Tonga Vs Toru Yano, Yujiro Takahashi, Tomohiro Ishii & Rocky Romero: **3/4
3. Hirooki Goto & KUSHIDA Vs Takashi Sugiura & Atsushi Aoki: ***1/4
4. Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue Vs Yoshihiro Takayama & Lance Archer: ***
5. Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima Vs Takashi Iizuka & Hideo Saito: **3/4
6. IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship: Prince Devitt Vs Davey Richards: ***3/4
7. IWGP Intercontinental Championship: Masato Tanaka Vs MVP: ***
8. Giant Bernard Vs Minoru Suzuki: ***1/4
9. Tetsuya Naito Vs Shinsuke Nakamura: ****
10. IWGP Heavyweight Championship: Hiroshi Tanahashi Vs Yuji Nagata: ****3/4

Good show, but apart from the main event, the rest of the card was disappointing. Ah, and that Nagata/Tanahashi was a fucking classic, still second best defence this year for Hiroshi, wrestler of the year without a doubt.

*** for that Takayama match? Christ, I'm starting to think I'm the only one who hated that match. Takayama was dreadful in it.

The story of the match was good and Takayama was nearly as always nowadays.

i gave it like *3/4. huge mark for tak but man he needs to either be in singles matches so he's not so damn lazy or take 3 months between matches if he's that beat up.

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

Cactus has a new blog? Yup. Go there now. All my puro shit will go there.

www.iheartprowres.blogspot.com

NJPW J Sports Crown: Dream Match


Hiromu Takahashi vs Tomohiro Ishii
For some reason I really got behind the rookie Takahashi. He played the underdog babyface really well in this match. I may just be a sucker an underdog story, but I really wanted to him to win this.
**

Hirooki Goto, Tomoaki Honma & King Fale vs. Toru Yano, Takashi Iizuka & Yujiro Takahashi
I can't think anything note-worthy to say about this. It was an alright match but it was completely forgettable. I'm really starting to like Iizuka. His whole heel schtick with the iron finger thing is good stuff.
**

Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima vs. Jado & Gedo
Yet another forgettable match. Take a guess who wins this. Yep. You're right.
*

Yuji Nagata & Wataru Inoue vs. Minoru Suzuki & TAKA Michinoku
From seeing MiSu showing the crowd how to be a good heel and TAKA getting kicked like a bitch, this match was very enjoyable. I was really entertained by it and they seemed to be hinting at a Nagata vs MiSu match, which would be epic.
***

Hideo Saito vs. Taichi
A lackluster match but you should really check it out for one reason; CAPTAIN NEW JAPAN! Saito debuted a new superhero character and it was really funny stuff. Even Taichi couldn't help but laugh. Saito is the Eugene of Japan, and I mean that in a good way.
**

Togi Makabe vs. KUSHIDA
While it was a good match, outside of some of KUSHIDA's moonsaults, nearly all of this match escapes my mind. Very forgettable. A problem with most of the matches on this card.
***

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Tiger Mask
A damn fine eight minute match. The match featured really awesome matwork. This is really the only reason to see this show. All fans of Nakamura should give this a watch and all three fans of Tiger Mask IV should too. Nakamura is really growing on me.
***

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Ryusuke Taguchi
Extremely predictable, but that didn't stop these two on putting on a good match. Taguchi's taunt is definitely more annoying than Tanahashi's air guitaring. He looks like a special man having an ecliptic fit. He really needs to stop that shit. Taguchi never had a chance.
***

Overall:
Do yourself a favor and skip this show. The star ratings aren't terrible but most matches were forgettable and I found it hard to sit through this show, to be honest. The crowd were dead, but they had really little reason to get excited. Spend ten minutes watching Nakamura vs Tiger and save yourself two hours sitting through this entire show.
