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

Watched both the junior title matches from the AJPW Sumo Hall show & neither was very good. Hayashi & Kondo vs. Suzuki & Aoki had a really clunky transition from the challengers bossing it to Aoki repeatedly going after Hayashi's arm with submission finishers. Kanemaru vs. Tanaka revolved around the champ targeting Tanaka's injured neck, but the number of DDTs & brainbusters doled out went beyond ridiculous.

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

Rewatched the G1 2011 Finals between Nakamura and Naito, and I stll think that match is overrated. I mean, it's really good, but I've seen ****1/2+ ratings for it, which is... wrong. The first half was basic as fuck, and SHINSKE didn't really bother to sell his leg. The finishing stretch was bossy, though.

***3/4

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

Can I get some reviews/recommendations for the Kawada/Nishimura match from 9/3/04? Pretty sure I saw somebody review it positively here once, but I can't for the life of me find it.

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

For a Triple Crown title match, Suwama vs. Akiyama was unremarkable. They started cautious & evenly matched, before Suwama began to edge it. Akiyama eventually got his nose in front & they kept you guessing down the finishing stretch, but the end came along when it was just starting to get interesting ***1/4

All Japan desperately needed to hit a couple of home runs with this show to reward the few fans who turned up with something positive to brag about to the dwindlers. Instead it was mediocre & forgettable. Might as well rename it Downward Spiral.

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

I got a real nice kick out of Liger vs Romero. Probably more than most; I knew there was going to be nothing but like on my end with it being two I really like. Or in Liger's case, worship. Juniors tournament wasn't stellar - clipping matches didn't help - although I've found it to be fun & easy to watch the whole way. That's what it needed to be.

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

NJPW 5/30/13 BOSJ Day 4

Hiromu Takahashi vs. Taichi: ***

Brian Kendrick vs. TAKA Michinoku: **1/2

Tiger Mask IV vs. BUSHI: *3/4

Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Titan: **

Hiroshi Tanahashi & Captain New Japan vs. “The Machine Gun” Karl Anderson & Bad Luck Fale: ***

KUSHIDA vs. Alex Koslov: ***

Alex Shelley vs. Rocky Romero: ***1/4

Ryusuke Taguchi vs. Kenny Omega: ***1/4

Ricochet vs. Prince Devitt: ***1/2

- Second half of the show was very fun after the dullness that was Bushi/Tiger Mask and the sloppiness that was Liger/Titan. Main event comes recommended despite not quite being a MOTYC level match.
