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

The point isn't how good the match will be, I'm confident it'll be better than them going the normal 25 minutes but it's pretty shitty booking to do a Triple Crown Title switch in a match like that.

New Japan 6/16 show is one of the best shows I've ever seen.

DDT vs New Japan 6 man was the perfect juniors opener. Ibushi and BUSHI need to have a series of matches and then team together like yesterday. Sasaki's chop block on Devitt as he was going for Bloody Sunday was awesome and played nicely off Devitt's knee injury from the BOSJ semi. Ibushi/BUSHI finishing strecth was really fun as you'd expect. ****

Liger/TM4 vs Taichi/TAKA is my favourite juniors match in like forever and MOTN bar Tanahashi/Okada. BOSJ Final day they did an angle where Taichi destroyed Liger's mask to pieces and the whole match plays superbly off that angle. Taichi/TAKA are amazing goofy heels in this. The low blow followed by TAKA counting his own quick 3 ruled. That and the ring boy beating with TAKA humiliation. The Kishin Liger turn is one of my favourite wrestling moments all year. Crowd go nuts for it and Liger GOATs it up like only Liger can do. Taichi's reactions to Kishin Liger were every bit as great too, especially when he's crawling away after the match. Couldn't believe how closely Liger powerbombed Taichi to the spike stuck in the table. Adored this. ****1/4

Anderson/Tonga vs MVP/Benjamin somehow ended up being the weakest match I watched (only one I skipped was the CHAOS 6 man) even though it was very good. Tonga is a guy who people need to start appreciating more. Benjamin's New Japan tags have actually been good because he's been able to just run through his spots and work with insanely talented workers. ***1/2

Taguchi/Ki was very good but I just didn't care for it. Those who do care for it will really like it though. About on par with their BOSJ final. Of all the pairs to have 3 big matches in about a month this would have been one of the last pairings I would have chosen. Very good match though. ***1/2+

Yano/Iizuka vs TenKoji exceeded all my expectations thanks to an amazing crowd. Skipped it initially but I watched it at the end of the show as I figured the amazing crowd could make it fun. They sure as hell did. Brawling segment was fantastic and set the tone perfectly with the double count out. Yano's reaction to getting a cheap defence was awesome. Feared the match might die down after the restart but they kept it as wild and chaotic as it was before and remained great. DQ finish was superb, especially the ref bump into the chair. As good a match as these teams are ever going to have. Crowd added so much to it. ****

Nakamura/Tanaka vs Goto/Naito was great. FIP segment was sped up but it was still great. Naito's a great peril wrestler and Swagamura is naturally great in control of a FIP. Naito and Tanaka have a really fun finishing strecth which features the most amazing pin break up ever by Nakamura. ****+

Makabe/MiSu was very good but I thought it dragged at the end and that hurt an otherwise really good match. Leg work was really good and I thought Makabe was great in it. Made him look super ahead of his title shot. Thought it would have benefited from Makabe being on the attack more at stages. ***3/4

Tanahashi/Okada was excellent. Actually thought Okada outworked Tanahashi in this quite comprehensively. His leg selling was phenomenal and he hits the best dropkick maybe ever. Last 10 minutes are incredible dramatic and feature some amazing counters and near falls, all while staying consistent with Okada's leg selling. If anyone's buying this from IVP beware that it misses about 3 minutes at some point and the second half switches to a lower quality source. If I wasn't checking what time it started and finished at I wouldn't have known though. Better than their first match but just behind Okada/Naito. Probably top 5 for this year off the top of my head. ****1/2

Somebody put the final 10 minutes or so of Tanhashi/Okada on Youtube not long after it aired in Japan. The crowd was on fire, so I'm looking forward to checking out that show soon.
