Unless they've seen every Fujiwara match that's made tape, nobody's seen enough Fujiwara.

GHC Tag Team Titles
Jun Akiyama & Takeshi Rikio (c) vs. Yoshihiro Takayama & Takashi Sugiura - ****

GHC Heavyweight Title
Mitsuharu Misawa (c) vs. Takuma Sano - **


Overall: 5.5/10


- Once you get past the first 4 tag matches, it finally picks up with the Dragon Gate match. You know exactly what to expect. It's just fast paced, high flying goodness. CIMA/Marufuji exchanges were really cool, love to see a singles match between them. Gotta feel bad for Ota though cause he literally took all the punishment.

- Holy mother of god that Jr. Title match was so bad. Started off well with Takaiwa throwing bombs and trying to win immediately but once Terry countered one move, he just stopped and the match started like any other one would. Takaiwa's control segment was pretty boring and then he just kept doing move after move and covering for a 2 count. It was literally a good 5 hard clotheslines and 3 or 4 head drops for two counts. In fact on the biggest head drop of them all, one that looked like it could legit win the match (it was some weird powerbomb converted into a cradle shock), he just stands there and lets Terry get back up. WTF? After some more of that shit, Terry makes his "comeback" and they start pulling spots that should've happened way earlier in the match. From that point on, Takaiwa gets ZERO offense in. Terry just keeps hitting move after move until a couple half tiger/dragon suplexes get him the shitty win. OH, I didn't even mention the botches. They botched like 3 things and those were the times they actually sold something, it made no sense. Absolutely terrible structure and a giant piece of shit. I never wanna see Takaiwa wrestle again, thank you. Suzuki didn't help things much, sloppy little bastard... Rant over.

- Well after that terrible display of wrestling, they come back and have a pretty awesome tag title match. 27 minutes worth of 4 badasses beating the living hell out of each other. It's one of those time where you're like, seriously, how much more can these guys really take? Hats off to all 4 for taking an ass whippin. I know nothing about Sugiura's career, but this definitely seemed like the kind of match that would "make" someone in that sense.

- The main event was just really frustrating. Sano's opening flurry is just fucking painful to watch. He beats the fuck out of Misawa, amazing he didn't crush his sternum. I thought after a few minutes of this that it could be really great in the sense that Misawa would play the underdog and have a nice comeback and all that jazz; ya know, a thing called structure. That of course didn't happen. Misawa CONSTANTLY got the absolute piss kicked out of him. I mean, I don't mind a good roundhouse kick to the gut or a nice double stomp, but my god one man can only take so much. Another problem was Misawa's offense consistently completed of foreams and a couple emerald fusions. Both guys just looked really limited in their movesets. I felt so terrible for Misawa, that man shouldn't have been in there. Really disappointing.

Ditch not having it doesn't come as a surprise tbh. Don't think the Fujiwara match was that good, I mean I enjoyed it but never thought it was something special.

Yeah I looked around and Ditch didn't really love the match, apparently. Guess that explains why he never upped it.

If this doesn't make you fan I don't know what to tell you. Yes I do: you're dead to me.

Actually Choshu doesn't get his dues either. Might be the most badass wrestler there is.

Currently been watching the Best of Mil Mascaras in Japan (fucking mistake) and I just need to rant on this guy for a few minutes. Seriously, he looks like the most difficult guy to work with I've ever seen. He doesn't sell for anyone whatsoever. You have him in a submission, he'll act like he's hurt for about 2 seconds and then instantly find a way to counter it or just flat out escape from it. He can't even take the simplest bump. Every single move has to seem like the struggle of a lifetime, a basic suplex ends up looking terrible and he must land on the mat with both arms at his side no matter what. What a fucking shitty worker. And that walk? Wtf is that? Suck your gut in and pace around on your tiptoes for an entire match. Yeah, he's got some flashy submissions for sure but jesus. Talk about overrated and overhyped. I've NEVER seen the man lose clean in the final or only fall of a match.

In between the New Japan/WAR feud, decided to check out this match after seeing Andy pimp it real hard. Safe to say it didn't disappoint:

Genichiro Tenryu & Nobutaka Araya v Taiyo Kea & Kiyoshi Miyamoto (All Japan, 4/27/02)

Holy crap, Tenryu was indeed other-worldly in this one, without doubt the sort of performance you'd link to someone who wants to understand why this Tenryu chap is supposedly the real deal. Spot where he checks on Miyamoto's bloodied nose only to casually punt him in the skull and depart the ring was just extraordinary and would serve as the revolving trend which dominated the match. Tenryu's exchanges with Kea & Miyamoto were amazing throughout, between the strikes, the facial expresions and the bumping off of the strikes they were some of the most engaging and impressive strike exchanges I've seen in Puro for what feels like an eternity, the spot where Miyamoto slaps Tenryu and he goes from a look of shocked disbelief to mocking and daring Miyamoto to try it again was incredible in its own right but is still the 2nd best exchange of the match after Tenryu's slap exchange with Kea: my god the facial expressions and resulting bump Tenryu provided for us in that exchange was indescribeable and there were even more moments where his selling of strikes just left you with your jaw open at how brilliant they were. Miyamoto was really good as well as the rookie fighting through a bloodied nose from the 2nd minute onwards and really played a part in making the Tenryu exchanges as great as they were. GOOD GRIEF at the beating Tenryu lays on Miyamoto when he next enters the ring after their slap exchange, Miyamoto flopping on the floor with a quivering lip was a hell of a visual and perfectly put over the shit-kicking Tenryu unleashed on him. Tenryu also walking across the ring just to punch Kea square in the jaw also warmed my heart, TENRYU!~

Now, New Japan vs WAR feud!


Tenryu, Ishikawa & Kitahara vs Koshinaka, Kimura & Aoyagi (New Japan, 11/23/92)

God damn, the heat for Kitahara was astounding. I know his tights were an insult to fashion but good grief Snitsky would have wished for this much heat when he punted a fake baby into the audience. Match is a really good addition in developing the piercing hatred that dominates both camps, feels incredibly chaotic and on the verge of a breakdown throughout with guys constantly chipping away at each other with every opportunity they get. Kimura looked to be legit wounded from an Ishikawa running knee as well, looked ridiculously brutal and appeared to be a misscommunication with Kimura leaving himself no chance to protect himself and Ishikawa running like a gazelle. Tenryu was used in small doses but what we got was the typical Tenryu greatness with some meaty strikes, incredible bumping and selling of his opponent's strikes and some pretty swank facial expressions, bit where he casually punts Koshinaka to break up a pin and then motions he'll beat the piss out of the ref if he even thinks of barking orders at him was tremendous. Tenryu's bump and shocked facial expression off of Aoyagi's spinning wheel kick near the end was inspiring, looked like he was about to fall flat on his arse out of the ring. Everyone played their part well and really got over the tension and hate that was to explode in the coming months and Tenryu got to look like the WAR world beater with the beating he was able to withstand followed by the powerbomb for the instant win. Powerbomb itself looked ridiculously brutal as well with the angle that Kimura's head snapped back off of the mat, all hail TENRYU!


Genichiro Tenryu vs Shiro Koshinaka (New Japan, 12/14/92)

Really good match which made Tenryu look like a force to be reckoned with as well as giving Koshinaka a nice loyalist underdog story with him trying unsuccessfully to find ways to put down and contain Tenryu. Action is frantic and jam packed with meaty strikes and I loved how they had Tenryu take over and bloody Koshinaka without ignoring the earlier arm work which had seen Koshinaka control the opening portion. Tenryu's punts and general disgust at Koshinaka was supreme but I would have preferred to see him noticeably grimace a bit more when utlising the injured arm, and I really hated Koshinaka popping up from a DDT to continue the attack as it really didn't feel believeable even with the move being delivered by Tenryu's damaged arm. Tenryu taking the time to hold the arm after the powerbomb was a subtly nice touch however that gave a small glimmer of hope that Koshinaka's efforts had not been in vain, and the resulting crossbody roll through counter made for a tremendous false finish with Tenryu literally getting his shoulder up as the 3 count would have been made. Finishing stretch reflected the whole match with Tenryu looking impervious and well ahead of Koshinaka but still being succeptible to his own arrogance as well as the earlier arm work. Doubt it'll be close to Tenryu's best stuff in the 92-94 period but it serves as a nice continuation of Tenryu's emerging dominance over New Japan and Koshinaka being the latest victim to have no answer to the powerbomb and overwhelming destruction of TENRYU!~
