Well, that's the "***1/2" one. Not so epic, though.

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

Jeez I totally glossed over that. Thanks rum.

Anyways, toss in another * to it and that's my thoughts. So yeah, it's an epic.

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

Tenryu, Suzuki, Morishima & Takayama vs Nagata, Nakanishi, Kojima & Tenzan (29/12/12): So yeah, that's a scary collection of talent in one match, even if the majority are past their prime. Anyway, I figured anyone with a love of puro would want to see this lot stiff the hell out of each other. ***1/4

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

Decided to watch a few past puro matches. Won't be giving full reviews, just some quick thooughts.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Shinsuke Nakamura (NJPW 2/15/2009): **** 1/2

Awesome match. Makes me even more of a fan of Nakamura's and makes me appreciate Tanahashi as well. I'm starting to notice Tanahashi has a bit of a formula to his matches but that doesn't hinder how excellent this match was.

Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Kenta Kobashi (AJPW 1/20/1997: *****

As far as puroresu in the 90's is concerned I'm a complete noob so I went ahead and watched Misawa vs Kobashi from early 97'. Without going into too much detail and saying stuff that has probably already been said this is an absolute classic match. Simply amazing from beginning to end. The psychology and storytelling behind this was first class, Kobashi's selling is superb and some of Misawa's spots were insane. The finish was done absolutely perfectly and might be one of the best endings to a match I've ever seen. I'm so glad I took the time to watch this. I am definitely going to watch more of their matches together in future.

KENTA vs Bryan Danielson (NOAH 2/12/2006: **** 1/4

Decided to watch this because of how much I loved their match at ROH's Glory By Honor V Night 2. Whilst this wasn't as good as that match it was definitely an excellent match. Danielson's working here was superb as usual and KENTA sold well throughout the match. Very good pacing throughout and the ending 5-6 minute sequence was awesome.

I may have asked here before and forgot to check back, but does anyone know where I can buy Dragon Gate DVDs? I know about OpenTheDragonGate, and I'm in the process of downloading some of the episodes, but I mean in regards to PPVs.

Testing out Dailymotion with a 3:41 glimpse at Jado's debut match from FMW Battle Creation on 12/10/1989. He gets KTFO by an angry Masa Kurisu after taking one hell of a beating. You must see it.

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

Prince Devitt & Taguchi vs. Giant Bernard & Karl Anderson (11/1/2009)- ****
-Back when I followed puro I remember my cousin being the biggest Devitt mark on the planet lol (I was Goto’s). Anyways this was a really good tag team match between these guys. They worked some tag fundamentals at a solid pace and really kicked it up during the second half. A55 did a good job of making Bernard look like an immovable object while directing most of their onslaught on the smaller Anderson. Some solid back and forth between both teams and some nice near falls and double team as well as some really good spots like Bernard’s delayed double arm suplex and sit down last ride, Devitt’s reverse compo kick and somersault plancha and the spinning roundhouse kick countered into the diamond cutter. Finish comes when Bernard and Anderson hits a Combo Breaker on Devitt for the fall. Great tag match.

CIMA, Dragon Kid & Ricochet vs. Susumu Yokosuka, PAC & BxB Hulk (4/14/2011)-****
-Fantastic six man action, just absolute insanity from bell-to-bell. They start with the feeling out process then afterwards I can’t begin to call all of the spots/stretches/combinations that took place in the match but you got a lot of signature offense including Tornillos, SSPs, Frankensteiners, Bombers, etc. and they were able to cram it just north of 10 minutes. Definitely one of my favorite DG matches from 2011, I've damn near seen it like 20 times it never gets old for me.
