I'm happy with the IWGP Intercontinental Championship being created. It's a great way to keep tops stars, like Nakamura, elevated without being IWGP World Champ or #1 contender all the time.

Roster is totally legit. I love just about everyone on it too.

Jun Kasai vs. Jaki Numazawa (BJW, 8/6/2005)

This is one of the rare Razorboard Deathmacthes, produced by Jun Kasai. This match had your typical hardcore beginning, but when Numazawa powerbombed the Crazy Monkey through the motherfucking razorboard, the all hell broke loose, and the match turned into a violent and bloody dance of death. And it was really good, but the finishing sequence was disconnected in execution, which kind of ruined the overall mood, hence why I’m giving the match one snowflake only. But, I enjoyed the match a lot, it was very entertaining.
Rating: *


El Generico vs. Isami Kodaka (Union Pro, 1...2...3...Union!)

TLC Match for the DDT Extreme Title. So yeah, this was a lot of fun. Generico was not an underdog here, he was a clear badass punisher, it was so refreshing and nice to see him beating the shit out of others for once. Poor Kodaka took a BEATING in this one, including two sick Michinoku Drivers. Kodaka played his usual underdog character pretty well. Watching his hardcore and deathmatch battles, I’m pretty fucking amazed how the fuck he didn’t break his body yet. They beat him to death in every damn match. Impressive, that skinny motherfucker. Anyway, this was a damn good hardcore match, makes me want to watch their 2011 match ASAP.
Rating: ***3/4


Yuji Hino vs. Kota Ibushi (DDT, What Are You Doing? 2012)

This was a damn fine KO-D Title match. Yuji Hino was a true BOSS here with his powerful offense, and every time Ibushi tries to accomplish something with his ninja shit, he simply cuts him off with some sick CHOPS. Damn, those hurt! This was a smart, well wrestled match, and not your typical Ibushi rush hour (not that Ibushi rush hours are bad), the pace was slower here, because Hino controlled it. This match made me a Yuji Hino fan. Like I said, this was really good, but the lack of spectacle and bigger drama prevent this from being a MOTYC, which is shame, because this match had a potential to reach a legendary status.
Rating: ***3/4

BAHU lives in the US and is a good guy who I met twice. Like myself he goes on wrestling tours in Japan and gets to meet a lot of guys at shows. Especially for Indy guys, it's very easy to meet them. Not so much though with NJPW and AJPW.

A lot of fun, as usual with Big Japan. Drake/Abby was good (but had a disturbing moment), the Brahmans/Callihan 6-man tag was campy but super awesome, and the other two matches I saw were solid and entertaining. Recommended.
I reviewed most of the show in my blog. I liked Drake vs Abby and it was quite gross. Them using the syringes is just begging for an accident to happen. Drake had some really nasty cuts here. The WXW tag was good as was the Brahman's match.

For anyone who cares, I watched the IVP Puro Sampler #2 today. The Vader/Hansen match is the one where Vader's eye came out of it's socket. The rest of the matches were decent. Nothing really memorable, but it serves it's purpose in showing what puro has to offer to someone just getting started. Would have been nice to see a comedy match of some kind though. I skipped over a lot of it tbh. Muta/Hogan or Tiger/Dynamite was probably the best on the card. the KOW match was meh. The BJW match was joined in progress at anywhere from 5-15 minutes in. They were bleeding and had broken quite a few tubes when it started. I'd still recommend it to anyone just starting to get into puro. More so than the original sampler, Although both together really give someone a good introduction.
Tiger Jeet Singh is a candidate for the worst wrestler of all time. He was a terrible poor man's Sheik. I've never seen him in anything even decent and the only decent thing about him is his entrance where he attacks the audience. He has no wrestling IQ and I can't think of anyone worse as a main eventer. Even Big Daddy was better than him.

Yeah, they're nuts, I mean, Abby has a needle stabbed through his fucking cheek, and yet he receives a Stunner from Drake. It was cringeworthy.

1. Manabu Nakanishi Returns Match: Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi & Strong Man vs. Toru Yano, Takashi Iizuka & Tomohiro Ishii - ** 1/2

What was so great about the main event? Tanahashi worked the leg and Suzuki worked the arm. Throw in some sleeper holds, then a miraculous comeback out of nowhere, and it's *****? I don't get it. I'm new to Puro and didn't know anything about the storyline, so maybe that's why but I was very disappointed with all the hype this is getting.

Naito is actually injured which is why it was short and baddish. Naito is pretty fun to watch imo.

I finished watching the show yesterday and thought it was awesome. The only match I really didn't like was Romero/Koslov vs Shelley/KUSHIDA...just too much overkill in that match. They should have had the partners kicking people off of each other but instead it was miracle kickouts. Okada/Anderson had the same problem but not to the same degree. Every match was entertaining and def. a great show.

If you can back up your opinion with a sound argument, nobodies going to murder you for your rating. Its your opinion, theres no point in having ratings if everyone agrees with each other.

My review for NJPW's King Of Pro Wrestling Show:

Yuji Nagata, Manabu Nakanishi & Strong Man vs Toru Yano, Takashi Iizuka & Tomohiro Ishii

Meh. Yano promoting his DVD and the heel shenanigans at the end were the highlights. That says it all really.

**


Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov vs KUSHIDA & Alex Shelley - IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships

Fun. A few overly coreographed spots, but they didn't detract from the match that much.

**3/4



Kota Ibushi vs Low Ki - IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship


Low Ki is awesome. The beginning was as well, and I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU~! when they started working a normal wrestling match. Ki did his best to carry Ibushi by being BOSS while cutting of ibushi's silly flips but Ibushi didn't really add anything to the match except a few cool spots. Also needed a few more minutes.

***1/4



Hiroyoshi Tenzan & Satoshi Kojima vs Lance Archer & Davey Boy Smith Jr. - IWGP Tag Team Championships

OK match. Nothing really spectacular to see here. They came up with a cool finishing stretch and gaijins did well cutting of TenKoji.
My complaints:


TENZAN IS NOT THE UNIFIED TRIPLE CROWN IWGHC CHAMPION OF THE UNIVERSE. THAT IS NOT RIGHT. TENZAN DA BEST
Davey Boy Jr.'s mannerisms are too cheesy. Like......Cena cheesy.

**3/4


Tetsuya Naito vs Yujiro Takahashi

Naito's leg selling was entertaining. That's really all there is to say about this one.

**1/2


Togi Makabe & Wataru Inoue vs Kazushi Sakuraba & Katsuyori Shibata
Chaotic, anarchic, stiff and insanely fun. I love how Laughter 7 get bigger reactions at just ATTEMPTING submissions than anyone does for actually locking them in.

***


Kazuchika Okada vs Karl Anderson-Tokyo Dome IWGP Heavyweight Contendership


Loved everything about this one. Okada selling Elbows like a big deal, Anderson's arm work, even the attempts of stealing each others moves, everything was executed perfectly, flew naturally and felt like a big deal. These two have great chemistry.

****

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Hirooki Goto-IWGP Intercontinental Championship

Nakamura is awesome. Goto is not. Thankfully there's enough Nakamura kicking Goto's ass and not a lot of weak forearm exchanges and Gotoism. A fine Nakamura carry job.

***1/4

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki-IWGP Heavyweight Championship

So yeah, here it goes...........


I don't think this was anything special really. Everything before the air guitar spot was pretty irrelevant. I didn't mind the spot itself as it fits into Tanahashi's persona. Suzuki looked pissed after it and I was ready to see him slap the shit ouf of Tanahashi. Instead we get a LOCK UP? Really? If they started the match with it, I'd be fine. But MiSu expresses his anger with a LOCK UP? Really? Then the arm work started and as soon as Tanahashi was back in control he slaped MiSu with his left arm. That particular detail really seemed like a big fuck you to all Misu's effort. Tanahashi's arm selling wasn't fine, it was awful. It never seemed like Tanahashi's arm was hurt. At all. MiSu's selling of Tanahashi's leg work, along with Misu's crisp offence, was easily the highlight off the match.


I thought a big problem in their Wrestle Kingdom match was that it was just......directionless. Like the Sekimoto vs Suwama matches were. Here, they filled that time with slaps. And I would have loved that IF it was set up like it could've been with the air guitar spot or if it was just two badass dudes beating the shit out of each other like the Sugiura/KENTA and Misu/Akiyama slap exchanges were. But it wasn't.


Someone said Tanahashi did a great job of selling fainting. I didn't think so. It looked like a bad wrestling cliche where the face somehow manages to reach the ropes. Yay.


That's pretty much it regarding my thoughts on the main event.


I didn't think it was a bad match or anything. I'd have it at ***1/2


Overall
: A very good show. Didn't think of it as highly as some other people did, but I reckon there will surely be something someone, no matter what his taste is, will enjoy in this show. Check it out.

Ok since I'm not alone, I agree. I'd give it *** 1/2. I guess I'm just not a fan of matches where all they do the entire match is attack an injured limb. It bores me.
