Being mobile and kicking ass. He was a giant shitkicker, but he'd actually get dominated more than you'd think and bump around the ring more than anybody else in the match. The crowd would live and die with him, really. He'd laugh at his opponent when they were in trouble and serve as a great cross of comedy/seriousness. Sort of like how KAIENTAI would act.

KAI EN TAI.

I'm not sure which match you're even talking about, is there a link?

Naito/Kojima & Nagata/Suzuki are both excellent.

He's probably talking about his matches with Inoki, Killer Khan and/or Stan Hansen.

I always thought Andre was just a circus act, but when I started watching his late 70's-early 80's work I was blown away. He was fucking awesome.

It's too bad there isn't a lot of footage of him in his prime.

OKADA/Naito is actually a pretty damn goodmatch but it has its flaws. I just hated how sometimes Naito would completely ignore all the leg work he had previously done at times. The finish also left a bad a taste in my mouth. I haven't seen the match in some weeks so correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the match end in a clothesline? And just minutes prior to that, OKADA was dropping Naito on his head? A guy gets hit some high impact moves and still kicks out, but a clothesline ends the match?

Then another thing was the piledrivers. I think I just have to accept the fact that in Puro a piledriver deals the same damage as a headlock. But the one thing I liked was OKADA selling the injured leg really well after delivering the two piledrivers (the one inside the ring and the other outside). He made it look like it was the only thing keeping him back from winning. But there were times Naito would just completely ignore the leg work. It wasn't often but it happened.

I not a big puro guy or as a matter of fact any wrestling match on the whole that involves stiff kicks chops, elbows,no selling and head dropping but NJPW doesn't feature such shit (at least from what I've seen) It's mostly NOAH and AJPW that do that sort of thing, so I stay as far away as possible from those promotions.

But I really liked OKADA/Naito. I'm not really that big a fan of either guy but OKADA is a really good performer in the ring. He has good psychology and sells well. For some odd reason he's like a Japanese Randy Orton to me with his mannerisms. This is a damn good match. I don't see it being MOTY but it's one of the best for the year thus far.

Some of his stuff from like 1972-74 is great as well (which was what I was talking about), but that Hansen match is ridiculously insane. If I had to take ten matches to a desert island that would be one of them. He was such a great wrestler.

I wasn't getting this joke either, I just saw "IWE" and brought up Andre's name.

1.It's a Wrist Lock transitioned into a Lariat which he calls the Rainmaker
2. Yeah the "clotheslines end the much" thingy is something everyone is suprised by when they first watch puro. As time goes by you'll see that a regular Lariat (which the Rainmaker, as you can see if you pay attention, isn't) makes perfect sense as a finishing move. You swing your arm and kill your opponent. It also targets the neck so it fit petfectly into all the neck work Okada did. While at first it may look like a regular WWE comeback clothesline, you'll eventually see and HEAR (god, are some of them stiff) that it's much, much more.

BJW 26/3/12 Strong Climb Final - Daisuke Sekimoto vs Yoshihito Sasaki
I loved the start with Sekimoto going straight in with his game plan of going after the neck and hitting a backdrop driver. It set the tone for the rest of the match, and Sekimoto was awesome and very methodical going after the neck. I loved Sasaki's first comeback attempt hitting the spear only to sell the neck amazingly allowing Sekimoto to get back up first and continue laying down the law. Again, Sekimoto was so great in this match, I loved how he changed the powerbomb/boston crab combo into an STF so as to go right after the neck again. Sasaki's comeback was well done, but my only problem with the match was that he seemed to forget about his neck in the finishing stretch even though Sekimoto didn't and continued hitting moves all directed at that body part. The actual finish was great with Sasaki throwing everything he had in his striking range and completely laying into Sekimoto who's selling was absolutely incredible. Some of the exchanges were so awesome, I do think the headbutts were way to much though, I mean they were fucking sick and you could clearly hear them legit headbutting eachother. I wish that hadn't had happened, I genuinely couldn't tell if Sekimoto was legit fucked or if his selling was just amazing, but I think and hope it was the latter. Great match though, I just wish Sasaki had sold his neck a lot better in the finishing stertch as it could have elevated this to true greatness, but Sekimoto's performance was legit incredible here.
****1/4

Sekimoto is easily front runner for my WOTY so far by the way.
