re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)
I missed this last year due to me only getting properly in to puro at the end of 2010, and only following NJPW and NOAH because I had quite a hectic year last year and couldn't devote too much time to wrestling. This year though I have the time to follow more companys.
Suwama vs Sanada - AJPW 31/7/11
I watched this based on Seabs recommendation because I liked their match in 2012 a lot, and it definitely delivered. Great limb workover by Suwama and great selling and comeback by Sanada. I'm becoming a huge Suwama fan the more I see and Sanada is really impressive too. That spot he does were he jumps over the top rope to the outside and hits a dropkick is nuts. I loved how Sanada used his other arm to strike and sold his arm all the way until the finishing stretch where I think he could have sold it a little better but he still occasionally would hold on to it and try and get some life back in to it. So yeah this was great and would easily make my MOTY list for 2011. ****1/4
I did actually like the story in their match this year just as much though, and maybe even a little more but thats not taking anything away from this match.
