Ricochet vs. Naruki Doi (Dragon Gate, Infinity 252)
This was an awesome, fast paced, high octane shit. The thing is, fucking Gaora only aired 10 out of 16 minutes, so on the moments it looked like there was no selling at all, but you'll see they clipped it if you watch carefully. Great Junior match with the storytelling centered about athleticism and upmanship. Recommended.
The Jimmyz vs. Masaaki Mochizuki, Don Fujii & Gamma (Dragon Gate, Infinity 252)
Open The Triangle Gate Titles are on the line here. It's the Vets against The Jimmyz. Yeeeaaah! Another really great match. Not only the action was satisfying, but there was some really hilarious shit. I was laughing my ass off for a couple of times, great comedy. No need to write anything special, it was simply one great trios match with a lot of fun. Recommended.
Akira Tozawa & BxB Hulk vs. The Jimmyz (Dragon Gate, Infinity 252)
HOLY BALLS! Why is no one talking about this super duper awesome match? This was balls-to-the-walls awesome. This was an epitome of the tornado/lucha tag style. I thoroughly enjoy any match where I get to see Hulk kick people and do Mouse, so this was no exception. His strikes are uber awesome, he can kick you from any position imaginable. And when you add the BITW candidate Tozawa, crazy Susumu and the underrated KAGEORA, with the tag titles on the line - you get nothing but the awesomeness. The storytelling is very simple here. You got the two evenly matched teams who hate each other and want to win the match at any cost. Which leads us to one helluva athletic rush hour with smashing, decapitating moves and with incredible nearfalls and great drama. My #2 for Puro so far, right behind Okada/Naito. Fucking incredible.
CIMA vs. PAC (Dragon Gate, Infinity 252)
Great match. I loved the face vs. face dynamics, it was the good storytelling with the result being something great. CIMA is mega over with the crowd, and PAC got his pops too. Both guys had the support of their stablemates at ringside, so the overall feel was even more attractive and important. The match was structured very well, it had some good selling and few really, really attractive sequences.
