I have a feeling you love the match just for being stiff. It's... wrong.

Just watched the Tanahashi/Suzuki IWGP Heavyweight Championship bout from King of Pro Wrestling for like the 5th time this week again tonight, what a wonderful title match. The raw emotion from the competitors, the hard hitting moves, the technical output, the crowd involvement, and the fact that no near falls were counted until the end made for a stellar match.

Kudo's to these two.

AJPW New Year Shining Series 3/1/13

I can't rate the first two matches as the streams I watched cut out on those two matches during parts.

Masayuki Kono vs. Kazushi Miyamoto **

Solid match undercard, very short though.

Taiyo Kea, Keiji Mutoh, Masakatsu Funaki, Masanobu Fuchi & TAKA Michinoku vs. Suwama, Takao Omori, Manabu Soya, Ryota Hama & Hiroshi Yamato *** 1/4

Really fun 10 man tag. Didn't really hit the next level though.

Triple Crown #1 Contender Match: Akebono vs. Joe Doering DUD

Just horrible. Akebono was awful in this match.

Asia Tag Championship Match:“Junior Stars” Minoru Tanaka & Koji Kanemoto vs.“Team 246″ Kaz Hayashi & Shuji Kondo **** 1/4

Awesome match, early MOTYC

GAORA TV Championship Match: Seiya Sanada vs. Tomoaki Honma: *** 1/2

Very good match, told a good story. Ending of the match hurt it a bit for though, execution of it was poor.

New Year Junior Heavyweight Battle Royal: *

A lot of botches at the start, horribly worked. The comedy aspects of it saved it from being a DUD and were somewhat entertaining. But bad match.

- No need to give it on overall rating since it;s just a sampler but you can download it for free right over here: http://new.ivpvideos2.com/product_in...oducts_id=9192

- Dynamite Kid vs. Tiger Mask is their first ever meeting & also the debut of Tiger Mask. Historic stuff for sure. The similarities between Dynamite & Davey Richards are crazy, fun little match.

- Vader vs. Hansen is the infamous eye gouge match. It's known for that reason but even without that happening it's a pretty awesome brawl. Just a shit ton of stiffness and two guys getting their asses beat.

- Muta vs. Hogan features the most wrestling moves you'll EVER see Hogan perform. Busts out some fancy armbars and even an enziguri. Muta's antics were good as usual but there was an odd botch where the camera shows Muta putting a pill in his mouth for the mist, then he spits on Hogan and misses his face totally & spits it on his chest. Good match.

- Liger/Tiger was the best match of the disc. Just a really great 12 minute sprint with an awesome performance from Eddie. He was just relentless in trying to put Liger away and even in a mask he's so damn good at working a crowd. Only thing I didn't like was the finish.

- 3 quick notes. Claudio is a FUCKING MACHINE! Jado was FUCKING CHISELED! Kota Ibushi is FUCKING AMAZING!

AJPW Selection 7 & 8

Giant Baba vs. Jumbo Tsuruta - *** 1/4
5/1/1976

Champion's Carnival - Finals
Jumbo Tsuruta vs. Dick Slater - **** 1/4
5/2/1980

Champion's Carnival - Finals
Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Stan Hansen - **** 1/4
4/21/1993

Champion's Carnival - Finals
Steve Williams vs. Toshiaki Kawada - **** 1/4
4/16/1994

Overall: 9.5/10


- Baba/Tsuruta was a bit on the slow side at times (what wasn't in the 70s?) but Jumbo really made it watchable. He basically threw everything in his arsenal at Baba and attempted to carry him to something watchable, which he pretty much succeeded in. Unfortunately, the finish leaves a shitty taste in your mouth. Jumbo hits a huge flying knee, yet they get right back up, Baba swats away a dropkick attempt and hits that stupid ass back suplex for a 3 count.

- Tsuruta/Slater was a work of art. Beautiful storytelling throughout and a perfect example of passion and determination. In the early minutes Slater is ALL OVER Jumbo, never giving him any room to breathe and constantly attacking a body part. Finally Jumbo reverses a piledriver attempt and backdrops him over the ropes to free himself, then he gives Slater a taste of his own medicine while being on the attack. From then on it's a pure battle of one-upmanship and who wants it more. 'You hit your piledriver, when then I'll hit mine! Nice suplex, bet I can do it better! Came off the top rope ey? I can do it too, let's see who can hit the bigger move!' Incredible match with a top notch performance from a one-eyed, bloodied Dick Slater. No joke, he was wearing an eye patch. Quite possibly one of my favorite Puro matches ever.

- Misawa/Hansen was stiff as balls. The first half sorta seemed like a real fight with all the nasty forearms and kicks to the face, plus Misawa would flat out not cooperate with anything Hansen wanted to do half the time. Really cool moment & the match takes a huge turn when both guys go for their signature strikes and their arms collide, causing Hansen to be in a SHIT TON of pain. If he wasn't seriously hurting from damaged fingers or a wrist than he was just selling the fuck out of that arm. From there on out it's pure gold with Hansen fighting as a one armed man and doing everything he could to put Misawa away. Love the finish & love the postmatch image even more with Hansen using the streamers to create a makeshift sling. Awesome!

- My Jesus how I need to see more of Dr. Death. That's one crazy bastard. They did an amazing job of portraying how Kawada was clearly outmatched and overpowered by Williams and for 3/4 of the match, he got his ass beat pretty badly. Great camera angles showed how genuinely intimidated and surprised he was by Williams, until he's finally able to get a flurry of strikes in to take the advantage. I was a little worried that if Kawada were to win that he wouldn't get enough offense in to make it believable but boy was I wrong. The last few minutes were an absolutely perfect way and frankly the only way Kawada could've won that match. Crazy that after hitting powerbomb after powerbomb, kick after kick, he still never showed any sign of confidence or belief in himself. Another really, really great match here fellas.

- Guy's this fucking disc rocks so hard. Buy it here: http://new.ivpvideos2.com/product_in...oducts_id/3790

A great Dick Slater match? I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS POSSIBLE!

I really have to stop saying I need to buy stuff off of IVP and do it already. Hate not owning any Puro sans the matches released on the Benoit DVD.

Random match reviews

NOAH Second Navigation (2010.2.28) - Morishima vs Kowada - **3/4
An alright "Kawada vs Monster" match. Kinda short (10 mins) but it's Kawada 2010, so I'm totally fine with that. The striking exchange before the end was really good.

AJPW (2006.9.17) - Kojima Vs Kondo - **3/4
This was slow. And I mean SLOW. Some alright little spots here and there but overall - disappointing (like most of Kojima's matches).

I'm not even close to being a big Dick Slater fan, but shit, that dude has plenty of good stuff (although I'm actually not that high on the Jumbo match).
