Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)
 
About time we made a Puro thread seeing as there's an Indy one and it deserves a seperate thread. You can use this to discuss any Puro matches or shows, past or present.

I've just finished this awesome set so I may as well get the thread up and running with some ratings for it.

AMEN!!!



some G-1 matches are already on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/passione2002

Edit: Goto vs Nakamura was really fun, exelent crowd heat and in ring action

I liked Kobashi/Kenskay the firs time, but I was very new to Puro and have only seen very little of both men.

After watching it again, after seeing both men regularly and getting use to their movesets and such, the entire match left me WTF. Kboashi doing lucha threw me into a loop.

Akiyama vs Kobashi during Departure is worse. Just a total bomb throwing no sell fest. Props to Akiyama, though. How he didn't break ANY ribs is beyond me.

Though, I sympathize with how these matches are booked. They want to put on a 'huge' Kobashi match and that's what they did.

I much prefer Kawada vs. Sasaki over Kobashi/Sasaki as the epic Tokyo Dome slugfest. Kobashi/Akiyama is awesome if you can get over the no selling. It might be damnedest heavyweight spotfest I've ever seen.

That's exactly how i feel about that match.
Probably my favourite modern match and so close to the full five that it hurts, but my minor OCD just can't get past that botch at the end.
Silly, i know.

I must be the only one who wasn't blown away by that match then. And Seabs i'm pretty dissipointed in your rating for #19 since I felt that was one of if not the best tag match of 2007 but then again it is your rating.

But i'm still calling you out therefore you are wrong because me ego and e-cred is the strongest force in the universe behind Hulkamania and male pattern baldness.

And ironic that someone makes a Puro discussion thread while i'm taking a break from watching it, but fear not the day will come when Andy3000 and I speak at length about our love for Dicks. Dicks we in fact cannot get enough of.

Dick Togo and Dick Murdoch of course.

Good idea making this thread Seabs. I did find it weird posting about Puro in a thread about Indies.

That set looks fantastic, I actually think I have 75% of those matches on my hard drive that I need to get around to watching.

I haven't seen the match since 2006, what was the botch again?

If i recall correctly, finishing stretch, KENTA has to catch Marufuji off the top rope for a GTS, doesn't quite work, so they do a quick punch-kick thing and visibly repeat the spot for a near fall.
It's not a big deal, but you know that if they got it the match would've been even better, so the full five feels a bit...wrong.
And i actually like the match so much i feel bad for not going 5* on it...:(

Nah, there were plenty of people over at puroresufan i believe that considered it the most overrated match ever.

re: Official Puro Match/DVD Discussion Thread (NO SPOILERS)
 
Yeah the spot where KENTA drops Marafuji after he comes off the top rope is slightly botched. I'm in the same boat as GP on it. I tossed between going the full 5 or not but for whatever reason I restrained from it. It's a fucking amazing match though.
