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

So I thought I'd post this in here since I wouldn't have any idea where else to. I watched the Steiners vs. Hase & Sasaki match back from March of 91, the one that's on the WWE Allied Powers tag teams DVD. I must say it's extremely overrated. J.D. Dunn from 411mania gave it the full 5 stars, but he must've been high off his ass. And I've seen it rated high as hell in other places. To me, it was just a collection of big moves. There was no selling, no psychology, just big move after big move. Plus, it's like 12 minutes. It was fun to watch, but nowhere near MOTYC level imo. I'd go ***3/4 - ****

Watched it myself the other week Jack. Here's what I put about it at the time.

Steiners vs Hiroshi Hase & Kensuke Sasaki - NJPW 21.03.1991

Typical Steiners match but that's always good so I'm not complaining one bit. Plenty of big throws and suplexes plus Hase & Sasaki can play Rick & Scott at their own game which makes for a really interesting mesh of styles. Hase does a good job of taking the brunt of the Steiners punishment for the majority of the match building up perfectly to the hot tag to Kensuke who comes in and again plays them at their own game with plenty of big throws between them. Looking back at I didn't think it was anything memorable or had a classic feel to it but it was just 13 minutes of really good wrestling.

***3/4+

I remember thinking the same after watching it for the first time last year. Infact I watched it again recently and just stuck with ***1/2.

Well I'm glad to know I'm not the only one. It was a bit of a disappointment to be honest

I like that match but I wouldn't call it ***** or anything. Fun sprint though.

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

I think the biggest fans of that Steiners tag are people that saw it around the time it happened. It was a LOT of people's gateway into puro at the time, similar to how the AAA When Worlds Collide Hair v Mask match was for Lucha. The shit they (Steiners, Hase and Sasaki) were doing in terms of offence was pretty insane at that point, especially if you hadn't been introduced to that sort of thing already.

People seeing it for the first time now generally don't get the love for it, because there's a real good chance it'll be "seen it" stuff for the most part.


And the only Misawa/Kobashi match that touches 6/3/94 is the 1/20/97 match.

Stan Hansen vs. Misawa (AJPW 8/22/92) ****1/2
Slightly better than their previous match. Same formula with a lot of restholds and once in a while high impact moves. Hansen worked on the arm of Misawa, because the elbows came always out of nowhere and he had a lot of trouble with that weapon. Same goes for Misawa, he worked on the arm of Hansen because of the Lariat (enough said). Like always they built to a climax where Misawa did a desperation elbow. Hansen sold it like Misawa's arm was made or iron. Against my odds, he got the pin after a very slow cover. Hansen did everything right but this new superman was born. Misawa could take an insane amount of punishment and his elbows were too much in the end.

Misawa/Akiyama vs. Kawada/Taue (AJPW 12/6/96) *****
Five-star match number 18 is a fact. It's not like I'm pushing my ratings, but this is just one of the greatest matches I've ever seen. Even without Kobashi. Akiyama proved he was one tough SOB. I mean he took a nodowa form the apron, a nodowa/backdrop combo (sickest thing there is) and the most vicous backdrop ever at the hands of Kawada. Taue feds Misawa to Kawada and just like in the 6/9/95 match he finishes him, although once again not one-on-one. Fantastic match. Not only the end which I just described, but everyone was on tonight. The Misawa/Kawada parts are just so special...aah just watch this shit!



Puroresu FTW!

I actually prefer that tag to 6/9/95 by a little.
