SUGI vs Ronin

It was meant to be a crazy quick spot-fest and was it ever. About 5 minutes of wild out of context random moves, they pretty much all came off looking awesome and got a reaction off of me for nearly every one, ton of fun to watch and succeeded in what it was trying to do.

Now I need someone to protect me from SeanCarleton

I've decided to work my way through Kobashi's GHC title run (the matches I can get a hold of anyway) starting with the match he won the title in. I've only seen a handful of matches from his reign so now that I'm pretty much done with Uni (YES! YES! YES!) I can watch as much shit as I want.

I decided to review the match while I was watching it just for the crack, so this has ended up being longer than it was intended to be lol, but there is so much great stuff to talk about in this match...

Kenta Kobashi vs Mitsuharu Misawa - GHC Title match (NOAH 01/03/03)
This was one of the first Puro matches I ever watched, and I didn't like it. I thought Puro would never be my cup of tea, fast forward three or so years and my opinion on this match has completely changed. A combination of getting more into Puro over the last couple years and watching tons of 90's AJPW with these guys and seeing their history together, and I finally see the love that this match gets. I used to think this was just a bunch of ridiculous spots for the sake of it, but now I see that this is so much more than that.

This has an insanely HUGE atmosphere around it, and why wouldn't it, it's Misawa/Kobashi. Good chain wrestling at the start with Misawa instantly going after Kobashi's arm. Kobashi tries relentlessly to hit his big moves straight away going for his half nelson and sleeper suplexes as soon as he gets the slightest chance but Misawa won't let it happen. Misawa in retaliation hits a SICK backdrop suplex as if to say 'Fuck you, I can hit them but you can't'. Misawa works over the arm a bit more, until Kobashi chops him. The chop just pisses him off and he knocks Kobashi loopy with an elbow, and then starts going for his more high flying based offense, but he makes a mistake and goes flying into the guardrail in a disgusting spot that legit busts him open near the mouth, Man that looked so brutal.

Misawa is pretty fucked, but to add insult to injury, Kobashi hits a half nelson suplex on the outside. Kobashi works over the neck for a while. He starts hitting Misawa with some insanely hard chops to the neck and shoulder area, fuck taking one of those. He goes all out to try and put Misawa away early because he knows this guy isn't going down easily, so he hits two half nelson suplexes in a row! Then theres an amazing moment where Kobashi chops the shit out of Misawas neck, and Misawa hulks the fuck up and just stares at Kobashi as if to say 'you fucking what bitch?'. Kobashi just responds by hitting a backdrop suplex. Awesome.

Misawa shortly after starts to make a comeback and theres an incredible sequence leading to Misawa hitting a tiger suplex to gain the advantage. The crowd is molten by this point, the camera cuts to the crowd and there is a little girl covering her ears and crying because the crowd is so loud. Cruel but awesome lol.

Theres a short part here I think the match could have done without where Misawa hits a tiger driver, then a stretch plum type submisson, and then another tiger driver. Kobashi kicked out of one of Misawas biggest moves twice (that has been known to end a lot of matches) in the space of 2 minutes, maybe not even that. The crowd didn't react to these spots anywhere near as much as they did to everything else. I don't think anyone bought the match ending there because the lead up to it wasn't big enough but there is no way that was going to take anything away from what came before and what was still to come.

Things pick straight back up after that with a half nelson suplex that Misawa just stands up after, wobbling around in a great fighting spirit spot and he goes for an elbow but Kobashi says fuck you and hits a sick sleeper suplex. I loved how Misawa then keeps going for comebacks but Kobashi constantly puts him back down, and everything is always centred on Misawas neck. Misawa eventually is able to hit a suplex on the ramp and then one of the most ridiculous INSANE spots I've seen when he hits Kobashi with a tiger suplex OFF THE RAMP~! What a crazy spot. Misawa is now in firm control and Kobashi's selling is absolutely amazing. I don't know how fucked he was after that ramp spot, but he was either legit fucked up or this was the greatest selling I've ever seen. His eyes are dazed and he just stumbles around, even after he fights his way out of the tiger driver and he manages to hit a huge lariat were he just falls on top of Misawa for the cover. It's not enough and he hits an awesome brainbuster and Misawa still won't go down. Kobashi is still falling all over the place as he helps himself up with the ropes, but Misawas neck is now completely done for after taking everything to it, literally every single bit off offense Kobashi threw at him was directed at the neck. Kobashi knows it's over now and hits the BURNING HAMMER for the win.

Absolutely incredible match. Yeah theres a lot of big spots and moves, but within the context of the match as well as their history, they all made complete sense. Boy am I soooo glad I decided to give this match another chance. Amazing. *****

In my opinion, THE best wrestler to ever grace this earth. Kenta Kobashi is superfantastico if you ask me.

I've seen all of Kobashi's GHC clashes, but never in order. I was jumping all over the place, from V7 to V2, to V5, V10, V4, etc.

One of the best/greatest reigns ever. Anywhere.

Theres probably a few I'll miss out because of not being able to find them anywhere, but I'm going to try and have my thoughts on most of them up by tomorrow. I know how good the Akiyama and Takayama matches are but I'll watch them again anyway and see if my views have changed, but I doubt it.

Ditch should have them all, no?

Tomoaki Honma has been terminated due to a "personal problem".

Fuck~! Though, this may lead to a return to either his first home of BJW or his second of AJP. Hopefully it's Big Japan so he can show Daisuke how to be a truly great wrestler. His big league coaching alone could help the lot of them. This is probably actually good news in the end but I'm really going to miss the man responsible for saving more nothing lower/mid card matches than any other wrestler in NJ history.

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi vs. Team Destruction (BJW, 12/18/2011)

Excellent shit. Tag team MOTYC, easily. Every move, every expression, every transition tells a story. SUWAMA is batshit awesome, he's great as an unstoppable monster. Top 5 in the world, easily. He's just sooo good. Takumi Soya is being put over here, in a very meaningful way. That resiliant fucker just won't die. Also, there was an awesome FIP session with Sekimoto, and that guys probably has the best hulking up in the business. Excellent match, great structure, great pace, great action and storytelling in general, all the way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VF5f...tfIyuVfTgvAHA=
Rating: ****


Jun Kasai & Jaki Numazawa vs. Yuko Miyamoto & Isami Kodaka (BJW, 5/5/2011)

Iron Cage Tag Team Deathmatch. Kasai's and Numazawa's theme song is WAIT & BLEED FROM SLIPKNOT! Now this was a lot of fun, but I cannot give it any high ratings because the first half of the match was a little bit campy and too "fake", and some spots were too cooperative. But down the road, the match just becomes better and better, with the great storytelling. I like how Miyamoto and Kodaka changed my opinion during the match, because in the first half I was like "WTF? These two skinny guys are baaad!", but after awhile, they've really impressed me, they showed a tremendous guts and heart, and I couldn't help myself but root for them. Kasai and Numazawa are two legends, I guess, and not only they're great hardcore wrestlers, they're also great showmen, especially Kasai. This match turned out to be great, with awesome and exciting finishing stretch, and the selling of the outcome was HUGE, therefore you could see that the match was very important. This was one helluva entertaining match, BUT, I cannot give it high rating because of some stupid shit from the first half. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwpk9...VOr-r6XV3BIIA=
Rating: *3/4


Brahman Shu & Brahman Kei vs. Yoshihito Sasaki & Shinobu (BJW, 2/2/2012)

Now THIS is how you do a campy hardcore match. Wow! 10 minutes of incredibly entertaining wrestling. Brahmans are incredible, they can fight, they can grapple, and they are great showmen, mega over with the crowd. Sasaki and Shinobu occasionally fight each other, lol. This was a lot of back-and-forth fun. Watch this pure entertainment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_IhK...Y_B21Gyz7QtP4=
Rating: ***1/2


Yuji Okabayashi vs. Manabu Soya (BJW, 1/2/2012)

Great shit right here. Awesome and strong psychology and simple/great storytelling. There's nothing like two tough heavyweights going full force. Superb work from both guys, this was great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWq2P...A83YxLSZHVSzk=

Kobashi is an absolutely incredible wrestler. Maybe the best facial expressions of any male wrestler from any culture, he could bump like a fiend, sold like nobody's business, and with some help from booking managed to come off feeling like he could both beat anyone and be beaten by anyone. Especially in the second half of his career that made him seem capable of elevating any opponent.
