Kitahara gets heat, but watching this stuff the crowd probably loathe Ishikawa more. T.Ish is fucking great. Have you watched any of it from 93 or are you doing it chronological order?* Because shit picks up and every tag is really great no matter who's in it. The Tenryu/Hashimoto tensions are unreal, and I had no idea Choshu was still the most bad motherfucker on the planet in the 90s. I'm going to make a totally honest statement when I say I don't think I've seen Tenryu/Hashimoto 8/8/93 and I can't imagine the level of transcendental brutal violent motherfucking asskicking badassery the match may have.

*prob read reviews and forgotten.

NJPW The New Beginning 2012 Review:

YOSHI-HASHI and Yujiro Takahashi vs. King Fale and Tomoaki Honma: **

Takashi Iizuka, Tomohiro Ishii, and Toru Yano vs. Tama Tonga, Jushin Liger, and Captain New Japan: **1/4

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship Match:
Apollo 55(c) vs. NRC (Davey Richards and Rocky Romero): ***3/4

Elimination Tag Team Match:
TAKA Michinoku, Taichi, Lance Archer, Yoshihiro Takayama, and Minoru Suzuki vs. KUSHIDA, Tiger Mask IV, Wataru Inoue, Yuji Nagata, and Togi Makabe: ***1/2
Takayama is injured or something? because i didn't saw him in recent shows.

IWGP Tag Team Championship Match:
Satoshi Kojima and Hiroyshi Tenzan(c) vs. Bad Intentions: ***1/4

IWGP Intercontinental Championship Match:
Masato Tanaka(c) vs. Hirooki Goto: ***1/2

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Tetsuya Naito: ***1/4

IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match:
Hiroshi Tanahashi(c) vs. Kazuchika Okada: ****1/4

Another awesome show. I also watched NJPW G1 Climax Day 7. Nothing bad but nothing memorable. Hopefully Night 3 is better.

I've seen bits and pieces of the 93-94 stuff (recall reading Andy's thoughts on the feud on his blog and convincing myself I'd rewatch from scratch) but tbh most of it is a total blur. Matches I've watched so far have been really awesome in furthering the angle but I have no doubt the best is yet to come in terms of bringing the hate with some even better performances, think its Hashimoto/Choshu vs Tenryu/Ishikawa that I'm just dying to watch.

Aye Tenryu/Hashimoto have 3 singles matches in the space of 8 months and I can't wait to watch each one as well as the tags they're involved in.

Ishikawa was really good in that tag, felt like the guy who's a nobody but right before the match Tenryu convinces him New Japan and their wrestlers are responsible for all the shit in his life and he puts in this really terrific 'rabid dog' performance where he's just chomping at the teeth to get in the ring and lariat the fuck out of the New Japan guys. Wouldn't surprise me if there was umpteen lines of cocaine found in his dressing room after the match.

At this point Yeah I choose to believe everytime I see the word 'indeed' in your posts its because of your devotion towards Kaientai.

Hoping to watch more of the New Japan/WAR Feud today, got side-tracked yesterday (and probably today and tomorrow).

IWGP Heavyweight Title
Shinya Hashimoto (c) vs. Lord Steven Regal (4/16/1995)

Pretty unique match here. The first one I've ever seen that's centered around someone's nose. Hash's nose gets bloodied so Regal relentlessly attacks it with straight punches and grinding forearms. Not only does it look painful, but I can only imagine how annoying it would be. Once you think it's finally done bleeding, he smacks you around some more and it's pouring all over his forearm. Nice little story with Regal always wanting to take the match to the mat cause he never wins the standing strike battles. Certainly not a match for everyone, nothing flashy to it. Really felt like a real fight on the streets with some occasional wrestling moves thrown in. Regal looked like a very worthy challenger. *** 1/2


Best of NOAH GHC 2001

Jun Akiyama vs. Takao Omori - ** 1/2
4/1/2001

Quarter Finals

Semi Final

4/12/2001

Finals
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Yoshihiro Takayama - **** 1/4
4/15/2001


Overall: 7/10


- Obviously this disc was about the 16 man tournament to crown the first GHC Heavyweight Champion. Really they should've just called it 'Jun Akiyama's journey in the tourney + two other matches'. They were stuck up this guy's ass with several interviews and 3 of the 5 matches on here were his. They showed highlights from every other match in the tournament and I would've loved to had seen Vader vs. Akira Taue & Scorpio vs. Kentaro Shiga in the 1st round, even though I know the latter had no implications later in the tournament whatsoever.

- Akiyama/Omori wasn't anything special. Match went pretty long but the structure was a little weird. In the first few minutes they were hitting big moves and having fighting spirit moments, then it randomly slowed down and Akiyama attacked Omori's right arm. Omori then had a control segment and back to Akiyama's armwork for several minutes. His idea of selling was occasionally shaking it and smacking it around, still hitting all his moves with no troubles. So that was a waste. I'm completely unfamiliar with Omori, and he showed me nothing to get excited about seeing him ever wrestle again.

- The two semi final matches were pretty solid. Misawa/Akiyama was a 15 minute sprint with a countout finish and a restart to a clean finish. Just a lot of moves and spots on the outside. Vader/Takayama was a nice slugfest that saw Takayama get dominated until Scorpio got involved and threw the ref around, getting Vader DQed. I guess they didn't want Vader losing clean, or maybe he didn't want it...

- Ohhh my the finals were awesome. Felt like it was gonna be Takayama's night, guy was on point. Dished out one hell of a beating, including a straight kick to the chest that ended up going a little high and split open Misawa's chin on impact. Misawa's late surge was good and he had some nice counters and sweeps into submission holds. Pretty awesome match all around, CHECK IT OUT MAN!
