Kobashi/Honda is 2003 MOTY.

I should go through the Kobashi GHC stuff I haven't seen/don't remember as well.

14.Kenta Kobashi VS Minoru Suzuki(08-01-2005) ***

Damn, man! That might be the lowest I have seen that rated, that has to be one of the top ones in my mind. Big strong face vs slick cocky heel.

Maybe so, but it's also by a wide, wide margin my favorite MiSu singles match.

I probably liked that about as much as Bruce did. Suzuki is overrated.

That match is awesome. Around ****1/4. I'd agree with it being MiSu's best singles match.

Nah, MiSu's best singles matches are with Tanahashi (WK) and Nagata (WK).

the PWFG match v Naoki Sano in 1991 probably smokes anything he ever did and anything he will ever do.

I just finished watching Kobashi-Nagata, so far an amazing set. I really liked his match with Bison, a great storytelling. Thanks for the ratings, btw.

Rainmaker appreciation:





Kazuchika Okada & Shinsuke Nakamura vs Hiroshi Tanahashi & Tetsuya Naito-29.1.2012.
You get their usual stuff wit lots of strikes from Okada and Nakamura and Naito and Tanahashi jumping around, toward the end there's a really cool moment where you think the faces are gonna win and then Tanahashi misses a plancha and Team Swag regains the control.
I really like the ending as well because it both gives Okada a clean win over Tanahashi and still leaves you with the mystique of would he have pinned Tanahashi if Shinsuke didn't hid the Boma Ye?
And, belive it or not, Tanahashi did leg work
About it:
Tanahashi does, literally, TWO moves on Okada's leg. Then like, 5 minutes later, he does a Low Dropkick which Okada sells like death, yet it turns out he was playing possum and catches Tanahashi of guard with the Air Raid Crash Neckbreaker which includes dropping his opponent on the leg. Genius stuff.


****1/4




Kazuchika Okada vs Hirooki Goto-3.5.2012.
Very good for the most part with a weird Rainmaker botch and a few moments where it seemed like they had no direction and Okada had to buy time bi-smiling with DAT SMILE.

Featured a great finishing stretch and few convincing nearfalls.

***1/2



Kazuchika Okada & Shinsuke Nakamura vs Suwama & Shuji Kondo-1.7.2012.


Sometimes in wrestling, the sheer clash of charachters makes everything epic. Suwama in all his bossyness, Nakamura, the Son Of God as the drunk mercyless badass, Okada in all his SWAG trolling Suwama and Kondo, the tired junior bartender that no one really cares about but is still there to eat the pin. FEEL IT~!
