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

Spent some time today watching NJPW "Dominion 2012" just for kicks and I really liked the event. The tag-team matches were okay but like I've said before, I'm more of a 1 on 1 competition guy and the singles matches really delivered here. The Low Ki title defense was awesome, and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship defense was awesome too, both matches kept me at the edge of my seat and I'm really appreciative of the great title bouts NJPW puts on.

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

I probably picked a terrible time to ask for this, but I need help finding matches from the NJPW/UWF feud. Namely the infamous 1984 five man elimination tag match.

I heard that Ditch's stuff got taken out alone with filecloud, so uh... Help?

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

That match should be on his site. Also, I upped the full 15 disc 1980s NJPW DVDVR set to PWT a few weeks back. The match you speak of is before the UWF feud and it's an elimination gauntlet series of singles matches really. That was Choshu's army vs. New Japan though, not UWF vs NJPW. Choshu went to All Japan and UWF formed at the end of 1984 and thus, 1985 was effing dreadful for the most part. UWF came back at the start of '86 and Choshu mid-'87. I've reviewed almost every good match from that feud here (apologies for being like annoying blog guy but this is just easier than reorganizing and listing them), that set being the only thing I've really watched in the last while. That match in particular is so much better after having seen the rise of Choshu and his character and style changing EVERYTHING, as well as getting to know the little feuds between other team members.

Makabe/Ishii and Liger/Suzuki from it are certainly worth your time.

Thanks for the link and the explanation MF83!

From Stuart's site

Quote:
Bushiroad chief Takaaki Kidani held a talk show several days ago and gave no indication that he has resigned his post in New Japan/Bushiroad yet as has been strongly rumoured. Several wrestlers were there including Tanahashi, Makabe, and Taguchi. Kidani announced that New Japan will run Sumo Hall in April which is very unusual and for the first time in quite a while there will be two Sumo Hall shows in this year’s G1 Climax as New Japan starts to upscale again after a fantastic business year in 2012 and an impressive paid attendance for this month’s Tokyo Dome show.
So confused right now. But I guess as long as Bushiroads keeps pushing New Japan it's a good thing. I just hope they don't go overboard with the "big shows" just for the sake of having them in big buildings.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

MAS QUE UNA PASION, UN SENTIMIENTO

No problem. It is maybe the best collection of wrestling I've ever experienced, way more enjoyable than 80s AJPW in comparison, and I'd recommend it to anyone! What I love is how every match has original layouts, there are so many high end players and combinations, and because of the diversity in matches and wrestlers watching the thing does not me burn out like almost every other comp has!

It can go from technical to bloody to shoot style to Choshuism tags to juniors to psychology matches to spotfests to gauntlets to elimination matches to death matches to angle matches to combinations of all the above and it's all so fucking tasty. Grab it off PWT now if you haven't already!

Going to right now, but in the meantime, since Ditch's site is working again, I've been watching 80s NJPW from there.

A few comments

1) Man, people say there's a big difference between US and Japan Hogan. The difference between US and Japan Andre the Giant is even bigger! He's absolutely awesome when around guys like Stan Hansen. Sucks that his body deteriorated like it did.

2) The more I watch the Juniors, the less I like Tiger Mask 1 and Dynamite Kid. More TM than DK. However, Gran Hamada is great.

3) The Foreigners. A bunch of them I've only heard about instead of watched, but a bunch of them are really fun to watch. Really fun. Tony Rocco, Billy Robinson, Murdoch and Adonis, etc.

4) I'm starting to get why Inoki is such an icon, but damn it, the rise of Choshu is just more entertaining.

5) (random) In about twenty years, I want to look like a black Masa Saito. I'm dead serious. He's a great wrestler too. Because of him and Fujiwara, I was siding with UWF the whole time.

6) I will never forget the name Tatsumi Fujinami. That man is the truth. As a junior or a heavy.

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

Andre at his best was incredible.

And yeah, Inoki is like the "Hulk Hogan" of New Japan (and owner, duh), but Choshu's a million times better wrestler and just one of the most charismatic people ever.

Saito wasn't on team UWF; he never worked for that company. He just had a big feud with Inoki going and sometimes they'd team him up with Fujiwara and others to oppose Inoki and Fujinami/Kimura/whoever else. He even worked against UWF guys (including a stupidly bloody match with Maeda. You'll know the one with how Ditch describes it). He was a part of Choshu's team against Inoki and all those guys before Choshu decided to take all his dudes and head to AJ, though. I could be wrong about some of that, but he definitely never worked for UWF. He is, though, motherfucking awesome. I'm eager to see him in All Japan & AWA.
