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

There's an Ohtani-Samurai match on this set from 1-29-96 which was excellent as well. I'll look out for another one from 97.

Been really liking Ohtani over the past few weeks. I always loved the Liger matches but I definitely underrated him.

Actually thats probably what I was thinking of. I just remember the match was from Ohtani's prime years ('96-'98). Been a long time since I watched it.

Ah okay then. It was a great match, I actually liked it more than the Kanemoto-Samurai match that Meltzer gave five stars.

Stopwasting time and send te 13 round fuckers down here Nah I'll probably pick it up after the NJ '80s that I'll get from Cal if he ships down here . Then again I'm probably more excited for Santo than anything else so I don't know what to get first.

Whatever happens, next year will be fun as hell from a DVD standpoint.

I love that Samurai/Liger match btw.

Some of these are on Youtube, but Negro Casas Vs. El Hijo del Santo Vs. El Dandy in 1996 is quite a great match, as is Blue Panther Vs. Ultimo Dragon in '92. In 2000, there was a very good series of matches b/w Blue Panther and El Hijo del Santo, and in 91, Blue Panther was also involved in a good match with Atlantis, who is another unsung hero of lucha libre. Almost anything involving Blue Panther, Atlantis, Negro Casas, and the terribly underrated El Dandy is sure to be better than average. Also, a lot of AAA material from '93-'95 was decent to great shit.

I believe you're looking at lucha libre in an ignorant light. You could say the same thing for North American wrestling (primarily NWA) during the 80s, and you can very well say Puro is nothing more than a martial arts ripoff. Watching it with an open mind will no doubt lead you to like it. I like all styles of wrestling (save for hardcore, but I don't really consider it a style), and I find something entertaining in everything.

Do I tell you anything new if I say their match from June 1990 was one of the best ever? It's not just a must see. Ahead of Misawa-Kobashi and their legendary tag match against Holy Demon Army probably Misawa's best match ever.I loved it (;

I prefer the Sept 1990 match. Not because it was a better match (because the execution was better in the June bout) but because both men took storytelling to another level, Jumbo especially.

Ohtani's fucking incredible. I've always thought his run from '96-'98 (minus crying like a bitch after nearfalls in '98) was as good as any junior's run ever. Also think he's pretty much as good as Benoit was, although Benoit was great for much longer.

And El Dandy's a top 5 all-time worker.

I've got a 13 disc Dandy comp and it rocks. I'd take Dandy in 1990 over everybody in the world that year, even Jumbo.
