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

Two random, lazy ass, quasi-reviews, featuring tons of solid/good/great wrestling waiting for you to check it:





Sweet Dreams! 2014

(2014/1/26)


5. Hikaru Sato & Sanshiro Takagi vs. Yukio Sakaguchi & Akito

****


6. KO-D Tag Team Championship: Konosuke Takeshita & Tetsuya Endo vs. Golden Lovers (Kota Ibushi & Kenny Omega) vs. Yankee Trillion Pistols (Yuko Miyamoto & Isami Kodaka) ©

****1/4


7. KO-D Openweight Championship: Shigehiro Irie vs. HARASHIMA ©

****1/4






2014/2/7


3. SCRAMBLE BUNKHOUSE DEATHMATCH: B Faultless Junky’s (Jaki Numazawa, Masashi Takeda, Takumi Tsukamoto) vs. Heisei Yakuza Duo (Kankuro Hoshino & Masato Inaba) & Saburo Inematsu

***


4. Kaz Hayashi & Shuji Kondo vs. MEN’S Teioh & Shinobu

***1/2


5. IRON CAGE & LIGHTTUBE DEATHMATCH: Ryuji Ito & Masaya Takahashi vs. Yankee Trillion Pistols (Isami Kodaka & Yuko Miyamoto)

***1/4


6. Kazuki Hashimoto & Daichi Hashimoto vs. Shuji Ishikawa & Kohei Sato

I know many dudes are afraid for Strong Division because the three top guys are injured, but that’s just a new chance for other talent to shine, that’s why there are invaders, in this case two behemoths from Union and Z1, there’s Daichi Hashimoto with a huge chip on his shoulder, and there’s motherfucking K-HASH! Two Hashimotos teaming together to take on big, nasty and vicious strikers, with Korakuen going crazy for them, great brawl with hellish strikes and punches. Kohei Sato always seems to be motivated in these interpromotional matches, and Shuji needs to stay in Strong Division and fucking DOMINATE.

****


7. VACATED BJW Strong Heavyweight Championship: Ryuichi Kawakami vs. Shinya Ishikawa

This might seem tricky and maybe uneventful on a first viewing, but trust me, pay attention, they do a bunch of great, “invisible” stuff, making every move matter, with a compelling sense of struggle.

***3/4

Either I haven't been looking hard enough or irie is making a hell of a lot more tape.

Whatever the answer I don't care. That man is fabulous. FACIALS~!!

Excite Series 2014 – Day 2

(2014/2/8)


1. Jr. Battle of Glory – Block B: Soma Takao vs. Yoshinobu Kanemaru

A totally acceptable short sprint, this is where Kanemaru doesn’t drag things down.

**3/4


2. Keisuke Ishii vs. Atsushi Aoki

It was more of an angle than a match, they were working a damn fine contest up until KENSO’s recruiting shenanigans. But, I liked what I saw.

**3/4


3. SUSHI & Ryuji Hijikata vs. KENSO & Mitsuya Nagai

Much better than expected, KENSO was actually trying to win the match, instead of creating chaos. His slaps are fucking beautiful. SUSHI as a punching bag? Yes, please!

***1/4


4. Jr. Battle of Glory – Block B: Masaaki Mochizuki vs. Hikaru Sato

Mochizuki’s work is heavily inspired by shoot style. Sato is a former fighter turned pro-wrestler, a huge UWF mark. So yeah, knew this would rock, but I was little worried when I saw they got only 10 minutes. Silly me, though, because 10 minutes in a semi-shoot style match is plenty of time, especially when you have two guys who like to throw tons of hellish, painful strikes. Great storytelling in the match (although it might not mean much to others who are not into the characters), nifty and nasty holds and counters, fantastic finish. Yeah, this ruled, Mochi continues his glorious 2014 streak, and Sato is just starting his own, trust me.

****


5. Go Shiozaki, Kento Miyahara, Kaji Tomato vs. Akebono, Yutaka Yoshie, Shigehiro Irie

A fun little Triple Crown prelude, highlighted by the swell Miyahara/Irie exchanges that made me want to see their potential 1-on-1 match.

***


6. Jr. Battle of Glory – Block A: Ultimo Dragon vs. Kotaro Suzuki

Good old match from Dragon’s workshop, which means crisp counters and fast-paced action. Kotaro added some of his stiffness, and there you go – this was really good, loved the finish.

***1/2


7. AJPW World Tag Team Championship: Jun Akiyama & Takao Omori vs. Evolution (Suwama & Joe Doering) ©

As good as you could possibly get from this one, because Akiyama is Sloppiyama now, and Omori is trash, which means Suwama is a fucking wizard for getting a rock solid match from them. I’d be perfectly fine if I never see Omori wrestle again. Hell, even Akiyama.

***


Good show from top to bottom, consistent in quality, highlighted by the awesome short ‘n’ sweet Mochi/Sato match.

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

I'm still incredibly lukewarm on Suwama. Guy just doesn't do anything for me when I watch him. For all the matches that were pimped last year he was involved in, none were up my alley.

I think Seiki Yoshioka's going to break out this year. Dude's got all the tools IMO. Really looking forward to the upcoming Bad Influence/Junior Stars match also!

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

Was there a card booked for the WRESTLE-1/TNA show? I only know the championship matches. I hope this properly motivates all the TNA talent, b/c even the good ones like Bad Influence & Aries have been shit lately. KAI better get the first non-garbage match out of Magnus in 2014 too.

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

Kai/Magnus
Wolves/Kondo and Hayashi
Aries/Sanada
Kim/Rayne
Bad Influence/Junior Stars
Abyss/Takayama
Roode/Funaki
Kono Dupree and Joe/Muta Terry and Mystery Partner (Chono I'm guessing?)
Nakanoueno/Nagata

Guessing Roode/Funaki and Bad Influence/Junior Stars will steal the show. I agree, Aries could really use a big match soon. Really hope TJP gets to go over for the May show so we get Yoshioka/Manik or something.

Isn't KAI injured at the moment? I can see that match being decent since it'll likely be a co-main event and be around the 12-14 minute range which is in both competitor's wheelhouses.

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

Roode might die vs Funaki. Abyss is sure to once Big Tak gets on his slow work.

No clue about KAI atm. That'll be a total bummer if so. Wait, why is Joe w/the heels in Desperado?

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

Yeah it'll be interesting to see how Roode adjusts to Funaki's style. It's his first time in Japan as a singles I think.

Guessing Joe's with the heel team because W-1 doesn't seem to stick to clear face/heel role on most of it's cards IMO.

Do you like Hiroshi Yamato? His gimmick's kind of lame but his wrestling's on par IMO.

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

But Desperado is the defined heel stable. That's the unusual part. For everything they have going on, Desperado is always there to cause a ruckus. Hmm. It's only a one night thing, but I didn't expect it. Shocked Roode isn't in different places w/Joe. Or even Abyss. Considering Joe's style would mesh better w/either Tak or Funaki.

Yamato is pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.
