Gotta love IVP.
I remember you reviewing a couple of Hash's matches a long ass time ago. Me & McQueen couldn't believe you weren't into that fat stiff bastard


Segunda, can't wait to read your thoughts on the last Tenryu/Hashimoto match (the one from February 94'). One of my favorite matches, and one that I can't get sick of watching. Two guys who can't stand each other beating the living shit out of one another in front of a red hot Sumo Hall. You just KNOW something huge is on the line and the two of them fight accordingly.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Hahaha. Pretty good memory ya got there. But yeah, I remember some tag match when I first saw him and I was like shit, this guy doesn't do anything but kick people. Can't blame me though cause there's a LOT of fat guys in Japan who don't do much.

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

Managed to track down this old review of Hashimoto/Fujiwara for the IWGP title in '94. Shame I have no way of tracking down a link for anyone who wishes to watch it thesedays.

Quote:
Shinya Hashimoto vs Yoshiaki Fujiwara - (New Japan 06/01/1994)

Fujiwara may very well be my favourite wrestler of all time, and Hashimoto himself is excellent so right from the get go I was expecting a really really great match and unlike Kawada vs Fujiwara : this delivered all the greatness I expected and more. This is paced very differently from your AJPW classics from around this time, there's plenty of action mixed with periods of lulls where both men jockey for position. Fujiwara has the reputation of being the most lethal man in wrestling history on the mat or on his feet so I dug how both men were nervous and careful when locking up, it played out like Hashimoto respecting Fujiwara may have his number and both men strategising for a limb to target.

No sooner has the match started and Fujiwara takes Hash down with ease into a Fujiwara armbar, straight away he's established his dominance and this sequence sets out the rest of the match pacing. Hash really sells the armbar well on the next lock up, he holds his left arm backwards and goes in one handed nervous about the armbar and it really puts over the struggle both men are in as well as making the last sequence mean something. Hash soon uses his kicks and puts Fujiwara's taped up right leg in the corner and then points to his injured shoulder and now you know it's on!! Fujiwara has some of the best facials in history (no that doesn't sound gay) and his selling of this spot is tremendous.

The other operating story in this is Fujiwara on defence. Throughout he tries to catch Hashimoto's kicks and turn into a submission and there's one sweet spot where he catches a loose kick and takes Hash down into a cross arm breaker. What Fujiwara does so well though is gradually piss off Hash more and more, he chokes him in the corner, slaps the taste out of his mouth before a lock up, avoids a spin kick from Hash and does the fucking GREATEST DANCE in the corner afterwards . You can see Hashimoto is getting pretty fucked off with all of this and keeps going for the kicks and Fujiwara takes enough kicks to let you know he's not got them all scouted but occasionally manages to block one kick and regain the advantage. People often call him the greatest defensive seller and this match is a good illustration, you can just see him trying to antagonise Hashimoto into a mistake and it pays off towards the end with Hash motioning Fujiwara to get in the cente of the ring. Also dug Fujiwara using a sick headbutt to lock in another armbar attempt which again Hash tries to fight like death.

The finish is particularly magnificent. Hash manages to lock in the DDT but Fujiwara attempts a couple of counters before ultimately falling to the knees to the gut and then takes a horrific bump on the DDT (I think its in a youtube video entitled 'Shinya Hashimoto hates your neck'). This DDT is good enough to win by pinfall or TKO but the crowd wills Fujiwara on (its his one and only ever IWGP championship match despite being one of the first NJPW graduates) to keep fighting. Hash unloads with a variety of kicks before hitting a second sick DDT for the win.

A match so simple in its execution but equally magnificent. Each exchange is treated like an incredible struggle and Fujiwara is magnificent in setting out the story of being in control and trying to force Hashimoto into a game of human chess. Terrific stuff.

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

I believe it was the pro shot, pretty sure it was Kawada=god on here who linked me to a megaupload link in the media requests section. That would be super considering its one of the finest New Japan let alone IWGP title matches and is something I'd struggle to see anyone here actively disliking (unless they're not fans of eithe guy going into it).

May have to call you Seabs1993 if you keep coming up trumps with match requests

Seabridge generally puts stuff up within two days of when he says he was going to. I take like five weeks.

Hey so as long as we get the good stuff (Navarro vs Engendro was so totally worth the wait and hype) I ain't complaining. Not like I got anything better to do than wait for your uploads .

If you do put that up, I'm getting on that shit. Hashimoto is one guy from Japan along with Fujiwara I've seen nowhere near enough of.

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

Pretty sure when someone puts the words 'Fujiwara' and 'not seen enough of' a small kitten dies. You've got that on your conscience BUBZ.

Bear in mind when someone then utters the words 'Fujiwara' and 'overrated/not worth the hype' Chris Brown & Jessie J continue to make music, and Adam Sandler continues to make what can only be described as the most loosely phrased 'comedy'.
