You can either get them on discs from traders or download from our puro section.

No need for anything else in terms of what you're looking for, really. Jun Akiyama, Suwama, Okada, Tanahashi, Naito, Goto, Marafuji, KENTA (if those two are your cup of tea), Daisuke Sekimoto, Prince Devitt, Kota Ibushi, CIMA, Kenny Omega and Akira Tozawa are all names that should deliver most times (with the latter names offering a more fast paced match than the former powerhouses).

I'm taking it as if you're new to Puro (so forgive me if you're not) so just follow a few reviews that you see going along in this or the 2012 MotY thread and just search for them on here for a while until you familiarise yourself with what names/styles/promotions you enjoy. But for every NOAH, NJPW and AJPW event released this guy has it uploaded almost instantly.

And on that note, I just noticed Devitt/Volador. Holy sweet fuck.

Jahmale Hepburn's channel is where I watch a lot of stuff or from the puro media section. You'll get pretty much everything from there.

You skipped Ishii and Iizuka's match? It's a sin.

NJPW Wrestle Kingdom II 1/4/2008

IWGP 2nd & 3rd Belt Unification
Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Kurt Angle (c) - ***
NJPW 2/17/2008


Overall: 8/10


- Tag match was much better than expected. Bernard looked like one hell of a monster, Tomko was vicious, Angle came out like a house of fire, and Nagata was Nagata. Really good sprint and a solid debut for Angle.

- Although it may not be from 2003, I really enjoyed Angle vs. Lesnar. They did a nice job of making Lesnar look like a beast with his control segment, and then it was pretty damn sweet when Angle countered the powerbomb and went overhead into an ankle lock. It does become a bit of a finisher fest towards the end, but what the hell, I liked it.

- Kendo Kashin is the shitstain that wrestled as Dragon Soldier B in ROH's Best of the American Super Juniors Tournament, so I'm pretty much not a fan of his. He was replacing Booker T in this match, so I'm sure the fans couldn't have been too happy about it. Not sure if the match would've been any better, but anyways. Solid enough match for such a random opponent, it just seemed like it took way too much for Angle to actually put him away. Cool to see Angle break out the figure four in honor of The Destroyer being at ringside.

- Angle/Nagata was flat out excellent. Great mat wrestling and submissions throughout. The figure four spot was really well done, as was all of Angle's leg work. Shame it never actually went anywhere though. Awesome counters down the stretch. Loved it when Angle swung out of the crossface and hit an Angle slam. Last ankle lock looked awesome as well. Definitely recommended viewing.

- Angle/Nakamura I wasn't really feelin too much. It's the classic example of why a lot of people aren't fans of Angle. Almost the whole match felt like a finishing stretch, WAY too many ankle locks. Rather annoying at times. In the beginning of the match I thought they'd go the route of Angle being the dominant heel and the young Nakamura making the comeback and getting the fans behind him. That wasn't really the case as he didn't really get that much offense in and having Angle tap just seemed really weird to me. It was my first time seeing Nakamura and they really didn't book it well enough to make me wanna see more of him. Had its moments but Angle annoyed me and it was a little on the short side.

- Overall I actually really enjoyed this. There's hype videos and background stuff before all the major matches and match quality is obviously quite solid. The Nagata match si worth the money alone and the rest is just a bonus.

Man, that Angle/Lesnar was terrible to me. Sloppy as shit and the finisher stuff near the end was on mind-blowing levels of crappy. Shocked that it was Lesnar's last match before the Cena MOTYC this year. It was, right?
