Nobuhiko Takada vs Super Vader - UWFi 12/5/1993

First of, I don't think I've seen a more classy atmosphere for a pro-wrestling match. Danny Hodge and Billy Robinson are standing aside Lou Thesz as he delivers a speech putting over the title that Takada and Vader are fighting for. Both men come down to the ring as their respective national anthems play. The bell sound and the audience go from a respected hush to an intense roar.

I was initially disappointed that this wasn't a 'big bully' Vader performance due to UWFi's rule banning closed fists but it wouldn't really fit in with the whole classy atmosphere they have going on here. Vader is instead the big behemoth that uses his sheer size and open handed potato shots to neutralize Takada. This gives Takada a great sense of uselessness and he sells the threat of Vader well. Takada's defense to Vader squashing him is his hard-hitting leg kicks. When he first pulls out a barrage of kicks, Vader goes down and the crowd explodes into a frenzy. Both men did a great job of making Vader look dominant and keeping Takada as a credible underdog without him looking like a total wimp. I don't think I could of asked for more here.

★★★★¼


Nobuhiko Takada vs Super Vader - UWFi 8/18/1994

While it may be lack the whole 'classy' vibe the first match had, the second match compensates by featuring a lot of elements that the first match lacked. The first match didn't feature that many memorable spots. This match has plenty. Vader's power game was in full force here, delivering german suplexes and powerbombs to Takada with ease and Takada returns the favor with lots of memorable high kicks and submission attempts.

There's a big shift in the character dynamics too. Vader's still using his power and open palm strikes. Takada has got Super Vader figured out and takes control of him with well-timed strikes and many attempts to lock on the armbar that finished of the behemoth during their last match. Takada dominates most of the match and not once does he look unbelievable doing so. My only complaint here is that they did go overboard with the knockdowns. Some of them felt excessive and they didn't actually achieve or add anything to the match.

★★★★½

can't wait till 2014 to see the final day of the Fire Festival.


No comment on the G-1 spoiler. It's not even worth it.


That's a pretty damn good number for an iPPV. Hopefully it would be more accessible next tim around

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Not so soon, probably. The last Puro show I've seen was the AJPW/NJPW show from July 1st. And it's August 8th today.

It aired 7/8 but who knows when it'll be available.

NOAH Jr. Tag League Teams
Quote:
- Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki
- Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Genba Hirayanagi
- Taiji Ishimori & Atsushi Kotoge
- Super Crazy & Ricky Marvin
- Ikuto Hidaka & Daichi Hashimoto
- Shiori Asahi & Hiro Tonai
- Katsuhiko Nakajima & Satoshi Kajiwara
- Eddie Edwards & Bobby Fish
- Paul London & Zack Sabre Jr.
- Kaiser & Gaston Mateo
Yes they got desperate enough to bring in Paul London. According to BIG DAVE the original plan was for Davey and Sabre to win the Tag League but they pulled out on Davey. Really hope Zack still gets the win. If not then there's another reason to despise Davey.
