Did the Low Ki vs Devitt title match ever get released? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

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

Hasn't aired on Asahi yet. And from the looks of it, RUDOS is no longer offering free uploads on puroresu. With that in mind:

NJPW 2012 LIVE FINAL @ Osaka IMP Hall

- Nickelback AND Linkin Park as hype music. I can imagine literally nothing better to help out with the excitement building process.

- Nakanishi on commentary.

1. Hiromu Takahashi and Takaaki Watanabe vs. KUSHIDA & Ryusuke Taguchi:
Give Watanabe the IC Title. Looking forward to seeing Hiromu in the BOSJ. In hindsight, this came off as if Hiromu was always going to be in the tournament. He looked really good and looked like he was trying to belong. I appreciate Taguchi taking at least one shot to the arm he would tap one of them out with moments later. The little things like that and the surprisingly decent mat wrestling at the beginning make this worth watching.

2. Yano/Iizuka/Jado/Gedo vs. JuTenKojiMasuku:
Gedo attacks Liger to randomly start the match. Once things cooled down, Jado was assaulted with a blatantly illegal double strike combo from Tenzan Mask. Most men would have succumbed instantly to such a vicious series of strikes. Jado, an innocent victim not wanting to let himself or his faction down, mustered an almost unhuman amount of grit to inch his way closer and closer to the outstretched arm of Toru Yano. Unfortunately, Jado's body seemed to give out all at once when he was >this< close. What a damn shame. How a referee can blow such a call and continue employment without penalty, let alone termination, makes me question the integrity of New Japan Pro Wrestling. I recommend skipping this match out of protest.

3. Yuji Nagata, Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue vs. Suzuki-gun:
Wild, messy, fun match. TAKA is finally letting some of his personality shine through, instead of strictly playing second fiddle to Taichi. Some kind of setup for a future match or two happened afterwards and the best part about this entire segment is Suzuki-gun beating up youngin's' post-match.

4. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Tama Tonga:
This oughta be tremendous. I believe Shinsuke is the best extended squasher in all of pro wrestling. He helped Tonga look legitimate, in particular selling a simple back elbow as if it was murder. Crowd was very into this because of things like that. One of those perfectly satisfying throwaway matches. ***1/2

5. Kazuchika Okada, YOSHI-HASHI & Masato Tanaka vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tetsuya Naito & Captain New Japan:
Tanahashi and Naito take turns stepping in front of each other to stare down Okada like on night one of the BOSJ, while the crowd chants for the Captain of course. This turned out to be pretty good in the end. What makes it better than average is Okada being a hate magnet. Tanahashi and Naito both brought a couple of good exchanges to Okada and those alone make this worth a watch, if nothing else. ***

6. IWGP Intercontinental Title Match - Hirooki Goto (c) vs. Tomohiro Ishii:
They start hot. All is well and good until the match falls victim to the "Goto Formula" and for a second, all hope is lost. That might just be me because I've been down on Goto lately, but that doesn't really matter because all of a sudden Ishii says, "well fuck this shit" and awakens everyone watching. He completely saves the match and gives a remarkable performance. He turns it on, and makes this an ultimately great match. There is one spot at the end you simply have to see, and I'm not going to spoil it. What a fucking ending stretch. I-SHI-I! I-SHI-I! I-SHI-I!!! ****

I'm satisfied, and for once my opinion might actually matter to you since the RUDOS uploading change-up may significantly lower the amount of stuff that shows up from here on out. This only cost me $5 from and if that can be managed within your budget, I recommend you seek this if for nothing else than Nakamura/Tonga and the main event.

Zero-1 PowerxPowerxPower

Hiroyo Matsumoto vs Yuhi
Surprisingly decent for a throwaway joshi opener. Yuhi looked very young (I'd say about 18-19 at the most) but was great here.
Rating: **3/4

Takuya Sugawara vs Craig Classic vs Raideen vs Menso~re Oyaji vs Yusaku Obata vs Shito Ueda vs Nick Primo vs Marcus Bean vs Sean O'Shea vs Mikey Broadrick - Battle Royal
Piss-poor timed battle royal. Nothing really flowed well but it had some cool and funny moments at least.
Rating: *1/2

Daichi Hashimoto & Yoshikazu Yokoyama vs Kazuki Hashimoto & Takumi Tsukamoto
I hope I'm not the only one who hates how Daichi feels he has to throw DRAMATIC ELBOWS~! in all of his matches. I can stomach them when they are used in the finishing stretch, but using them three minutes into the match just irritants me. Anyways, it didn't hurt the match too much though. I got to see some Hashimoto on Hashimoto violence and I'm partially satisfied.
Rating: **1/2

Jimmy Susumu & Jimmy Kagetora (c) vs Takafumi Ito & Mineo Fujita - NWA International Lightweight Tag Team Title
The heel/face dynamic was pretty confusing. The Jimmies (who remind me of a more athletic Jado and Gedo) resorted to heel tactics yet still got cheered and got a comeback. It's nothing too major. Aside from that, the match was very good. Ito was the star though. He looked like an old-school shooter and would catch the Jimmies flawlessly in mid-air and lock them in Fujiwara armbars and leg grapevines.
Rating: ***1/2

Shinjiro Otani, Ryouji Sai & Zeus vs Kohei Sato, KAMIKAZE & Tomoaki Honma

Otani and Honma really know how to rile up a crowd and that made for a great match alone.
Rating: ***

Masato Tanaka & Ikuto Hidaka vs Naomichi Marufuji & Taiji Ishimori
I thought this was just going to be a dose of underwhelming Ishimori/Marufuji flippy shit and it was for the first part. However when the Hidaka made the hot tag to Tanaka, the place exploded. This all lead to MaruMori upping it up a notch and go balls to the walls with spots. Well-timed and structured spotfest and Marufuji's best performance since his match with Suigura last November.
Rating: ****

Akebono (c) vs Daisuke Sekimoto (c) - World Heavyweight Title vs NWA World Premium Heavyweight Title
Talk about disappointing. At the start of the match, a worried looking Sekimoto looked at the behemoth that is Akebono. How is this short statured man going to take down this beast of a man? It's the perfect backstory. ...then Sekimoto hits a german on Akebono and starts working him over with easy two minutes in. Ergh. Not only that, but this barely went eight minutes. It's a title unification match, not an opener. There was a cool moment when Sekimoto powered up after getting splashed, but apart from that this is skippable.
Rating: **

Give it a watch. Good showing from Zero-1.
