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

Pretty much agree with Yeah1993 there, though Ishikawa v Greco 2008, Kobashi v Takayama 2000 (same body of match as their 2004 encounter, and despite having a lesser finishing stretch compared to the almighty 2004 stretch, I thought the majority of the work and in particular Kobashi's selling was better in the 2000 match) and Misawa/Takayama 2001 or 2002 for the GHC Title would all be pushing the top 5 spot for me as well, with Kobashi/Takayama probably the best out of the matches I've just discussed.

Co-sign on Ikeda/Ishikawa 2005 being AWESOME as well, completely different matches but I thought it absolutely smoked Kobashi/Sasaki 2005 and Kobashi/Akiyama 2004 when I watched it about 8 months ago.

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

The '00 and '04 Kobashi/Takayama matches are both terrific. I watched the '00 match for the first time last year and thought it was fucking awesome. I don't remember enough about his performance in the '04 match at this point, but Kobashi's performance being better in the '00 match isn't crazy at all.

I watched the Ikeda/Ishikawa match fairly recently and it's by far my favourite match they've had together. I don't really love the BattlArts matches the way I used to, but the FUTEN match is just a fucking whirlwind of violence and ill will. Haven't watched the tag in...IDK, three years, maybe. When I started putting together an '05 list Ikeda/Ishikawa was my #1, and the only match I thought could knock it off would be the tag. But then I never got around to re-watching it and the idea of sending in a ballot was dropped not long after that. Watching stuff from a WCW Poll and the All Japan 80s set took up enough of my time.

The MEN’s Teioh/Shinobu vs Mashimo/Madoka tag from 08' is one the best tag matches of the last decade in Puro imo, at least worthy of being mentioned in a shortlist.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

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

MOTD talk for Japan should include Honda/Kobashi GHC Title match in 2003. You won't find better matwork in pro-style work than what Honda pulled out. Plus, you have some of the finest spot work to go with it. Great transitions & counters (as you'd expect from Honda) but also a bunch of unexpected crowd heat and charisma. There are of course a bunch of good matches in the shout - that would need to be watched closely next to each other to work out which is better - but Honda/Kobashi is easily Top-10 consideration.

Kobashi/Honda v Akiyama/Aki Saito is probably a top ten as well. I still need to see Kawada v Naoya Ogawa from December (I think) because I heard it was a possible MOTYC. Been sitting on my hard drive for months now.

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

Quick list off the top of my head:

1. Kawada/Fuchi vs. Nagata/Iizuka 2000

2. Mashimo/Madoka vs Teioh/Shinobu 2008
3. Sasaki/Nakajima vs. Kobashi/Shiozaki 2005
4. Tenryu vs. Mutoh 6/8/2001
5. Kobashi vs. Takayama 2004
6. Liger/Inoue vs. Kanemaru/Kikuchi 2002
7. Nagata vs. Takayama 2002
8. Kobashi vs. Honda 2003
9. Ishikawa/Sawa/Otsuka vs. Ikeda/Usuda/Super Tiger 2008
10. Sugiura/Shiozaki vs. Nakamura/Milano 2009

Honorable mention to the Dragon Gate 12 man, four team, trios title match from 2003. Can't give it a position but that is the best spotfest I will ever see.

Ah, I forgot Akiyama/Misawa from '00. Maybe Akiyamas best match and a definite candidate.
