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

I can totally see people not liking it since it does have so much no-selling. What I don't get is that it seemed almost universally praised at the end of 2011 through 2012 but now it is looked down upon. Didn't know what the major difference was. Though I know how much tastes can change in a short amount of time.

I'd say Callihan/Younger was a different ball game than that. Younger takes a boatload of offence, and is built as a strong bastard. What got me annoyed with that Strong BJ match, though, is that they made me care for something only to throw it away as if that was simply irrelevant. When you're making your own story irrelevant then I can't continue. I'm not sure how many matches I've just stopped watching because of stupid shit. Don't invest me in something and then make it wasted time. That's just grating.

I only hopped onto wrestling, from a critical standpoint, around that time. So, being the newbie that I was, I followed the crowd and assumed that's what wrestling was. I assume we've all moved on, grown in taste and realised the short comings. That or the novelty of something new has worn off.

Watched the top two matches from Diamond Ring's 31/8 show. Ibushi & Nakajima vs. Suzuki & Kanemaru is disappointing. The limb work goes nowhere & the finish is hugely anticlimactic. Sasaki, Akiyama & Shiozaki vs. Suwama, Omori & Miyahara is six guys leathering the hell out of each other, but it drags because Korakuen just isn't that into it.

Seki bumping for Shinobu's tackles is really fucking stupid but, boy, does Sekimoto kill him with his power moves

NJPW Road to Destruction from 14/9 is completely skippable. Best match is Okada & Tanaka vs. Kojima & Naito at around ***. Has anyone seen the 5/9 show?

I've been wondering if it was even up online. Want to see those two elimination tags right now.

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

Watched a few matches from the Wrestle-1 debut. Show looked good & had a decent enough crowd, but it's obviously going to take some serious time & patience to reverse the non-NJ puro slump.

Junior All-Stars vs. Hayato & Mochizuki was just dozens & dozens of stiff kicks back-and-forth with nothing resembling match structure & nothing sold for more than 30 seconds. Sekimoto & Okabayashi vs. Kondo & Hayashi was boss - stiff as hell, with the juniors taking a pummeling before unleashing a spirited fightback (****). Laughter 7 vs. Funaki & Kono was a decent shoot-style battle. And Kai vs. Sanada presumably showcased the men around whom the company will be built. Sanada's been given a Tanahashi makeover & is dabbling with a cocky Adam Cole-style personality that he doesn't quite seem comfortable with yet. Action was okay, but nothing special given the occasion.

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

Who do you guys think is better overall between Nagata and Nakamaura?

I'm a fan of both but I can't figure out who I want more on my Japan brand in WWE13(Yes, I still play it lol).
