Jushin Liger vs Naoki Sano - NJPW 31.01.1990

Glad that I enjoyed this just as much as I did on first watch. Was in between minds as to whether or not give it the full 5 before but now I think a proud ****3/4 is deserving of it. The match is really great and one of those matches that really shows off why Liger was one of the best juniors ever. He really gets the heat between the two wrestlers over from the get go by going at Sano with all his intensity and sets the bar high from the get go. Liger's offense, though minimal is so full on and hard it's great shit. The shining light of the match is Liger's deadbeat selling of Sano's offense which is amazing. Liger's comeback at the end is kinda a bit on the short side but it's good stuff anyway. Liger pulling out a shooting star for the finish was a nice touch too.

****3/4

The Great Sasuke vs Jushin Liger - Super J Cup 1994

Really good fast paced high flying junior stuff but slightly on the overrated side imo. It's great but I wouldn't consider it a classic. Both men pull out all their high flying super cool moves from their arsenal to put on a show and the crowd eat it up. Sasuke is far far from a perfect wrestler and you can definitely see that. The finish is really arkward with Sasuke totally fucking up the springboard and then just going straight into a roll up finish after it. Liger kinda saves with his cocky attitude coming out after Sasuke falls flat on his face from the failed springboard only for it to get the better of him. The fucked up springboard right at the end kinda hurt the match for me though.

****1/4

Wild Pegasus vs The Great Sasuke - Super J Cup 1994

This one is a step up on Sasuke's semi final match with Liger and definitely a better performance from him. Benoit is always solid and just does his thing in amongst Sasuke flying about the place. Sasuke pulls out all his high flying shit again which the crowd eat up yet again and makes for a great atmosphere for the final. Sasuke changing his top rope senton to the outside to a dropkick was a nice touch from his match with Liger right before it. The finish kinda came from nowhere. You'd kinda expect more a bigger finishing stretch for the final of such a big tournament but instead Pegasus just hits a big top rope move and gets the win against Sasuke's momentum. Last time I watched it I was the same rating as this time but considered giving it the full 5. Definitely wouldn't go any higher this time, lower if anything but I'll stick where I am for now.

****3/4

NJPW's official Youtube cahnnel is one of the greatest thing I've ever seen.

It is pretty amazing. They have a 24 minute video featuring clips from 1972-2007 (ends with the ending of the 1/4/07 Dome Show).

That was an incredible video, even WWE's Hall of Fame Induction videos come nowhere near that awesomeness.

Satoshi Kojima is leaving All Japan.

from the SSS boards:

Quote:
Tokyo Sports reports that Satoshi Kojima will be leaving the Company next week. Kojima, who injured his right arm during the Champion Carnival, will undergo surgery this June. Kojima is expected to Resign with the Company as soon as his Right Arm fully heals. He is still expected to finish up the last 2 shows of the current tour.
Quote:
Now as I've (Sobak) read article on TS . TS cites Kojima and Mutoh. Kojima didn't renew contract, which I assume ends at May 31st. And he has planned operation on June 2nd, so since it'll take long time to heal, he didn't want to trouble AJ with his injury (which probably means have money for nothing). So Aichi will be his last show.
Diagnosis is ulna nerve paralysis on right elbow. Looks like he needs 3 months for recovering. He naturally becomes free when he returns.
Satoshi says he was able to feel the growth of a young generation. He also wants to challenge some new things.
Quote:
I'd just like to say that on the Japanese blog I was translating, the reason he is not signing a new contract, is because his new contract would start June 1st. He and Mutoh met in February about Contract extensions. His arm was a known issue then. So they had him get it checked out while pulling the trigger on Hama. After getting it checked out he was diagnosed with the ulnar palsy in his arm and the Dr. recommended surgery. They(Mutoh and Koji) decided that the smart thing to do for the company was for him to just let his contract expire and take the necessary steps to heal his arm.
His future is uncertain, he could re-sing with All Japan when he is fully healed or go freelancing.

Just caught this,

Toshiaki Kawada vs. Mitsuharu Misawa (6/6/97): **3/4

I expected a lot more from the beginning stages. The start, I thought was great with Kawada's usual strikes and Misawa going nuts. All of a sudden, it degenerated into a 'moves on the whim' type thing. The problem was that if they weren't planning on selling the injuries, then doing the same moves over and over again on the opponent was a very bad idea. The armbar sequences by Kawada were sloppy and didn't strike up later once Misawa's neck became the focus.

A lot of brutal headthrowing though, which is to be expected I guess but they didn't do anything for me because there wasn't much thought put into building that (except for 'me mad' obv) and not enough follow up either. The ending, though I liked the idea of it came off rather flat. Kawada was out of it, so the referee didn't count the pin? Then he GOT THROWD ON HIS HEAD again and Misawa got the pin.

Just too many drivers, powerbombs and suplexes for my tastes, especially since they were all delivered in the same sequence over and over again until Kawada died. It's definitely a very good match but it's nowhere close to what they did in 94. This makes me want to watch that again.

besides 3/6/94 & 6/9/95, the best exchanges between those 2 where in tags IMO.

Still, that 97' match is different from other title matches between Kawada and Misawa 'cause that was the first time Kawada was the favorite to win the damn thing (after finally getting his 1st pin on Misawa in a singles match at the CC). It's just another chapter in Kawada's long path to beat Green Destiny for the Triple Crown. He just hits bomb after bomb because it's the only way he has been able to beat Misawa previously (tag matches, and that CC win), at this point Kawada is desperate and on some "you are gonna stay down this time!" attitude, but as always good ol' Misawa makes a comeback and beats him, again.

I also liked when he worked Misawa's arm, going back a few months when Kobashi did the same thing at 1/17/97 and was very close to beating that elbow throwing bastard.

Yeah, I remember the prior Championship Carnival match. Wasn't that like under ten minutes? Didn't really care for that either.

I get the throwing bombs argument. I see it all the time and don't really care but if they were throwing the same bombs (Not just Kawada but Misawa too), then they really could've spiced it up. It's like they went from spot A to B to C and then back to A and there was pretty much zero selling in the match (which again is quite common but that doesn't mean it isn't a problem.)

yeah, the Champions Carnival match was short 'cause it was inmediatly after Kobashi and Misawa had wrestle for 30 minutes. There was a 3 way tie in that years tournament and they did a "round robin" type of thing to determine the winner.

you may like the 1/22/99 match more, it's the most headrop-y match they had, but to me, it's their best singles match after 94 & 95.

So, can anyone direct me to Shinya Hashimoto's greatest matches? Purely for research reasons. I've heard he was like Kawada, which is instantly win.
