I usually stream it via youtube so it's not a stretch for me. Anything to see it, I say.

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

I have to say, Gedo playing sympathetic babyface manager was amusing.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship Match:

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship Match:
Prince Devitt(c) vs. Ryusuke Taguchi: ***1/2+

IWGP Tag Team Championship Match:
Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr.(c) vs. Ten-Koji: ***1/4

Yujiro Takahashi vs. Togi Makabe: **1/2

Katsuyori Shibata and Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Wataru Inoue and Hirooki Goto: **3/4

IWGP Heavyweight Championship Match:

Another great show from NJPW. Anderson/Tanahashi was amazing, I liked even better than Okada/Tanahashi WK7 but not quite as much as Nakamura/Sakuraba. Anyway great show from NJPW, really enjoyed it.

8.25/10

Email Jeff Lynch. He's the best source at the best price. SlamBamJam too. Sources for PPVs are really dry right now. None of last years Dragon Gate PPVs made it out in full, just digest versions from free TV. I don't think the last All Japan PPV made it out in full either. Basically anything on Samurai TV or GAORA will be available at some point but PPV is much more uncertain to be capped. Fortunately New Japan being on iPPV now makes them shows far more accessible.

Thing is, some people make it out like it's impossible to "get" 90's All Japan without knowing the back story and that's just plain wrong. Most of the classics can still be considered great if you just randomly select them and watch.

Funny enough. I think the best singles match they produced (6/3/94) needs the back story for it to be truly appreciated. I don't buy someone watching it for the first time and thinking it's the GOAT singles match without previous knowledge.
That consensus kinda put me off getting into 90's All Japan for a while. You don't need to watch anything previous to get how great the top matches are. It might slightly enhance your enjoyment but it wont damper it. Matches like the 6/9/95 tag are too amazing for any sort of backstory not being available to restrict someone realising that match is a fucking classic. Don't put all that stuff off thinking you'll watch everything leading up to a match first because you won't get through EVERYTHING leading up to it even if you try. Every top All Japan match you can appreciate without any backstory.

Nothing touches it for me. Art. Absolute masterpiece.

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

Dragon Gate Kobe World 29.07.2009

Super Shisa, Shisa Boy and K-Ness vs Real Hazard (Kong,Arai,Kanda) - **1/4

Just a 'meh' opener. Babyface team got sloppy at the end. Cyber Kong was entertaining and that's pretty much all your positives here. Blah.

Stalker Ichikawa vs Abdullah The Butcher - -*
Don' like Ichikawa. I'm a fan of guys like Danshoku Dino or HG, but absolutely not digging Stalker's gimmick. And his opponent here was Abdullah...Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaeh...

Anthony W. Mory & Super Shenlong vs NOSAWA and MAZADA - **
Just a ...match. Shenlong trying to be funny after Ichikawa's match and Cyber Kong being kinda silly in the 1st match felt like an overkill.

Naoki Tanizaki vs Kzy - **1/2
Started off strong but then turned into a complete mess.

No1 contendership for the Triangle Gate Championship
Warriors-5 (Gamma, Susume Yokosuka, KAGETORA) vs Akebono, Don Fuji, Mochizuki Masaaki - ***

Not bad. Decent action, Akebono was used well here and the match made the new contenders look strong/dangerous.

Open the Triangle Gate Championship
Kamikaze (Tozawa,Taku Iwasa, Dragon Kid) vs. World-1 (BxB Hulk, PAC, Masato Yoshino) (c) - ***3/4

Good 6-man Dragon Gate-style match. Not a classic, but DG guys doing their thing in multi man tags without too many botches and 2343 kick-outs always works.

Open The Twin Gate Championship
Shingo Takagi and YAMATO vs Ryo Saito and Genki Horiguchi (c) - ***1/4

DG made YAMATO look good here and the right team still won. That was good. Everything else - Real Hazard doing their heel shit lucharesu style and some occasional decent action. Meh.

Open The Brave Gate Title and Open The Dream Gate Title are on the line
CIMA (c) vs Naruki Doi (c) - ****

MOTN and a very good main event. Surprisingly decent selling of a leg work, especially for a DG match. A well-paced match as well (surprise No2). CIMA was the star of this match; very smooth, fine selling and told a good story in and after the match.

Overall - 7.25

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

I don't know why I didn't wait a week for the show to be released. Guess I walked into the spoilers like I do with the indies. Being a knucklehead thinking I'd have to wait a month or two to view. Not one of my better decisions.
