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

I guess I'm just baffled as to why Okada and Suzuki did just fine two months ago, but somehow Suzuki's style was too elusive this time. Headscratcher for sure.

Their match at New Beginning was fantastic for sure which makes me think it was an off night for both. And perhaps Suzuki was being a bit lazy in this match too because he was on point at the New Beginning.

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

copied from the spoiler thread but with thoughts on other matches as well.
Spoiler for my thoughts on Dontaku:
I loved the Jr tag match and despite how stale the division is and how much they make me not care about them they throw out great matches. ****

'ed when I saw Strongman back. Hope to see more. @ KES losing the belts.

Tanaka/Honma was fine but Tanaka is really played out. I get it, you wish you were still in ECW. The brainbuster really should've ended it but idc because the Sliding D is delivered so fantastically. Tanaka has to be my least favorite guy on the roster.

Makabe/Yujiro was decent. Yujiro should be a face.

I hated the Benjamin/Shinskay match and not because of the botches (though they didn't help). I thought it exposed Nakamura a lot. Shelton works on his knee for like 5 minutes and Naka slaps his knee and then hits him with about 10-20 knee strikes with that knee while running and doing his swag to the nth degree. I get that he likes to work the abdominal region but this time it just showed he has no idea what else to do if he doesn't do that or that he's just too lazy. His selling + botches makes this match a dud or worse imo.

Anderson/Tanahashi was also pretty bad though not awful. The structure of the match just wasn't good. It went 12 minutes or so. In that 12 minutes Tanahashi hit about 4 moves while Anderson countered everything and Tana takes the victory. At the end they tried cramming finishers and false finishers to make it epic by doing whatever it was they were doing and it was just flat because the match was not designed to be epic.

Okada/MiSu is not worth mentioning

I'm not looking forward to Okada/Makabe but I thought he deserved the shot after defeating Shibata at the Dome. Also booking wise I thought Shibata should've beaten Goto though I enjoyed the match and finish in a vacuum.

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

I was marking hard for the Okada/Suzuki match to happen - now I'm scared to watch. I love both these guys so I'm gonna give the whole event a watch like I do all of NJPW's shows, but I already feel extremely let down & I haven't seen a second of it yet.

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

I'd love to see Shelley/KUSHIDA as the final of BOSJ. Since it seems like Devitt's moving up the card I wouldn't mind a KUSHIDA or Shelley title reign. What's the deal with Low Ki? Is he done with NJPW for a while now? Also, who do you guys think sticks around with NJPW after BOSJ?

Okada vs Suzuki was a bust? Sheesh. That's heartbreaking in the truest form possible.

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

Champion Carnival Day Six is completely skippable - I wish I could remember why, but I guess that's the point. Highlight of Day Seven is a really good (***1/2) David vs. Goliath scrap between Shiozaki and Hama. Funaki vs. Akiyama main event is decent, while Suwama vs. Omori is just okay.

Yikes, I guess I'm the only one who actually liked the Okada/Suzuki match.

Okada vs Suzuki was very average. That was disappointing because both wrestlers are capable of better and they had a great match at New Beginning 2012.

At least someone liked it. Gives me hope that maybe it won't be as much of a letdown as it appears to be.

I'll hop on Dontaku later this week. Hopefully before the weekend.
