Vader vs Antonio Inoki - NJPW 04.01.1996

Really dug the shit out of this one which actually suprised me. Vader is fucking awesome in this one and the Inoki presence on top of it makes it quite the sceptical. Vader's got this great respect thing going for Inoki but at the same time during the match treating him like a piece of dog shit he's just stood on in his best leathers.

The majority of the match is Vader killing Inoki with him teasing comebacks to keep the crowd hyped up. The mix of in and out ring action is really nicely done with Inoki even managing to bust Vader open on the outside. Vader is fucking brutal and annihilates Inoki on the outside just launching chairs and tables at him. There's one awesome chair throw from Vader which smacks back off the ring just missing Inoki. Vader's fucking awesome at playing the physcotic big mad man in hunt for blood and in this case it's Inoki's blood.

The crowd really come into it and make the final parts great with Inoki constantly kicking out of Vader's big moves. Seeing the fans marking the fuck out in every sense of the word when Inoki lifts his shoulder up after Vader's vader bomb and moonsault is awesome, especially as it's little japanese people jumping up and down which for some reason made it more enjoyable to me.

The finish kinda comes out of nowhere after Vader's moonsault (omg btw) and at first I was kinda like, oh ..... it's done now then. But it works really well and like the rest of the match has that feel like it could be genuine if it was really going down. Inoki busting out a simple but deadly submission hold like he did for the win makes sense and the whole finishing sequence works the crowd wonderfuly. If you get into then I'd imagine you'd love the shit out of it too like me. I forgot to mention it as well but Vader's suplex on Inoki. OHMYFUCKINGGAWD!


****

Great Sasuke vs Ultimo Dragon - NJPW 05.08.1996

Well this was a let down. All it was to me was two guys moving around the ring really fast trying to put moves in between the running around and not doing it very well. Neither one looked totally comfortable and both looked lost for the majority of the match. It just felt like an exhibition match with no real purpose. Plus both guys, Sasuke in particular looked sloppy. Sasuke's moonsaults were embarrasing tbh.

***

Shinya Hashimoto vs Genichiro Tenryu - NJPW 01.08.1998

Loved this in very similar ways to the Vader/Inoki match. Both men just go crazy on each other with chops, slaps and punches. It's got a great genuine fight feel to it but at the same time like Vader/Inoki even though both men act like they want to kill each other you can also feel the geuine respect between the two which I adored.

For such a match that's largely strike attacks as opposed to a wrestling clinic you need a hot crowd that's into it and they got just that. They eat up everything both guys throw at them for the duration of the sprint. It works so well because both men are legit badass motherfuckers. The rest periods when both men would try and catch their breath, I really dug because it's what you do and Hashimoto's selling of it is brilliant, probably because it's so genuine how worn out he would have been with the rate he was going at Tenryu. Probably prefered Vader/Inoki slightly but both matches are great wars.


****

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+

Keiji Mutoh & Masahiro Chono vs Kensuke Sasaki & Hiroshi Hase - NJPW 01.11.1990

Suprised how much I enjoyed this considering 3 of the 4 in this I'm not too bothered about (the other being Sasaki). The opening sequence and the finishing stretch are fucking hot and are what really makes this match so good. The middle portion is kinda meh and I lost attention at one point but fortunatly it's reasonably short so doesn't take away much. All 4 men go real hard at the start and get the crowd hot from the go and the crowd get really hot for them. The finish is then really hot and as the wrestlers go into another gear, the crowd move up to another gear with them. I really dug the shit out of the finishing sequence without it ever going anywhere near overkill territory. Nobody really stood out with a single performance which I actually quite liked cause it was a real group performance and as a team all 4 men made it work so well.

SEABS did you just say you AREN'T INTERESTED IN HIROSHI HASE?

Because if you did now its really on bitch. Guy was better than Mutoh and Chono. Best wrestler never to make it past the midcard (because he's reportly too selfless).

Its true.


And if anybody hadn't heard, New Japan has an official Youtube Channel, but they don't have a page for it (youtube claims that the channel doesn't exist for some reason).

But if you can find any of the videos they put up, and if you have an account, you can subscribe and if you click on your username on the upper right hand corner and click 'subscriptions' and then click the name of the channel (NJPW), you can see the last 100 videos they put up.

There are tons of great matches from all eras of New Japan, some clipped and some in full. Its pretty damn awesome.

holys shit, that's awesome news Derek....i hope they have Hashimoto finally beating Tenryu in 94'.


Don't know if Hase was better than a motivated Mutoh, but the guy was pretty fucking great. His only IWGP title match is one of the best ever.

Also, people need to watch more Shinya Hashimoto.

Everyone needs copious amounts of Hash. See theres my drug joke for the year.

I honestly largely think Chono can be boring unless he has the right opponent and Mutoh is so damn inconsistant that i'd definately put Hase above him, not Hashimoto though.
