For some reason Final Battle 05 didn't seem like a big event I mean we got a great Low Ki vs. Kenta but the Dragon vs Marufuji match was just random and outshined now with their New Level match. Plus the only thing that seemed big was the 4 Corner Survival and the Tag Title match. I mean maybe it had good to great matches but didn't seem to have the feeling of a big event
I agree. I think it was because there weren't any big feud blowoffs or really any match with a backstory except Nigel/Claudio. Just a bunch of exhibition matches.
I think that might be the reason no real big fueds on it like 06 w/ the Homicide Title Chase, 08 w/ Morishima vs Danielson and Nigel's historic title run, and 2010 with Steen vs. Generico/ KOW vs Briscoes/ and Daveys quest for the title
FB2005 is one of the most historically important shows in company history though. The debuts of KENTA and Marufuji, the redeeming turning point for the Tag Titles, Homicide and Cabana being escalated (although I would argue that it crossed the line of Wrestlecrap absurdity), and the beginning of a nice little rivarly between Danielson and the Embassy.
I'm about half way through DDT4 and it's been an amazing show. The American Wolves have two great, yet totally different matches with the RockNES Monsters and the Young Bucks. Tozawa was awesome in his opening round match as well, telling the crowd to shut the f**k up and getting into a karate battle with Mark. Definitely a fun show and worth picking up.
