Zero-1 (March 2, 2010)
Tanaka & Mochizuki Masaaki vs Hidaka & Sawa - ***3/4

Fun. Overchoreographed at times and the ending was a mess, but aside from that - very good and pretty much what you expect to see from these guys. Hidaka/Tanaka's chemistry, Sawa being silly, Masaaki kicking stuff, etc.

AJPW (2010.1.3 Korakuen)
Suwama & Masayuki Kono vs. Seiya Sanada & Osamu Nishimura - **1/2


NJPW G1 Climax 2005
Kawada vs Minoru Suzuki - ***3/4

Perfect story for these characters. Suzuki was Great at playing his part. Awesome finish.

Real World Tag League - Finals
Steve Williams & Terry Gordy vs. Mitsuharu Misawa & Toshiaki Kawada - *** 1/2
12/6/1991

Overall: 7/10

- Davey Boy Smith was yoked out his fucking mind in '89, I couldn't get over it. Such an agile guy for his massive size. Super fun tag match with some great exchanges of showing off between Davey & Furnas, who was pretty jacked as well. Finish was a little flat but the other 17 minutes were awesome. This makes me wanna see a lot more All Japan tags from the time...

- Thankfully Brody/Hansen vs. Jumbo/Baba was a total sprint with LITTLE involvement from Baba. Another fun match with a really hot crowd.

- Road Warrior matches were throwaways unfortunately. Vs. Jumbo & Tenryu was going along fine but had two lame ass finishes, then just gets thrown out in typical All Japan fashion. The other lasted 90 seconds.

- Brody vs. Jumbo was shockingly average. First 10 minutes were nothing but rest holds, then Brody gets destroyed, seemingly forgets all of that occured, and wins with two moves. I love Brody's wild antics, he's entertaining and and all that jazz, but I think I've seen enough from the guy to say that he was a pretty shitty worker. Rarely sold for anyone and I don't think I've EVER seen the guy get pinned.

- Miracle Violence Connection vs. Misawa & Kawada had its good and bad. I basically enjoyed everything they did in the first 20 minutes. It got to a point where MVC took the Japs outside and laid out Misawa with a powerbomb on the floor, giving them the 2-on-1 advantage against Kawada, which was incredibly smart. That created some great moments with Kawada kicking out of some finishers, then turning the tides and dumping Williams to the floor and locking a sleeper on Gordy. Once you hit that point the match seemingly lost all steam, got really disjointed, and went into overkill mode. Just 2 count after 2 count from the same stuff. Would've been better with time shaved off, 25 minutes was a bit too much.

Anybody have ratings/reviews for the Dynamite Kid/Tiger Mask series? Plan on watching them tonight since there only looks to be 5 or 6 matches. Much appreciated.

They do not hold up well at all. I was generous with my ratings here, from my DVDVR 1980s NJPW review (they only included the better singles matches of the series):

Tiger Mask vs. Dynamite Kid (8/5/82) – Original for these two. Didn’t feel forced and got to be a very good juniors match in the end. **** 81%

Tiger Mask vs. Dynamite Kid (1/28/82) - Better than their first match on here but not by much. Same problems with the botches, spottiness, poor transitions, lack of flow, but the impressiveness of what they were doing sticks. ***1/2 74%

Tiger Mask vs. Dynamite Kid (4/23/81) – Makes Tiger Mask look good and lays the foundation. Definitely not as good as I remember. Messy, confused, a botch, but still very entertaining. ***1/2 73%

Tiger Mask vs. Dynamite Kid 4/21/83 (Meltzer ***** match) - When VLC rolled onto the next match after this I was left scratching my head, thinking, "WTF? How did I once love this match?" After all their matches together, I honestly enjoyed this the least. It's... it's not even good? Reading the DVDVR posts about this match is really interesting because you've got the one guy defending it as this all time classic and almost everyone else dismissing it. I enjoyed their match previous to this one quite a bit, it even crossed the four star threshold for me, but right now I can't comprehend just how and why this match gained such notoriety? It's like learning the truth about Santa Claus or something. I've been let down by old matches before, but this is dumbfounding me right now. I had this second last at that point. **3/4

I remember thinking the world of those the first time I watched them. Only own the first match and it holds up for me. Agreed with the **** snowflakes. Rest...that be a mystery. If I dislike the "5 star" match like you, it'll only sway me to think less and less of Meltzer's opinion. He and I have different tastes on quite a bit.

The best Sayama/Dynamite Kid match is probably ***1/4.
