NOAH - Great Voyage in Tokyo 2011 Vol. 4

Masao Inoue & Kento Miyahara vs Mikey Nicholls & Shane Haste
The fans really didn't seem to give a damn about the gaijin team, which is a shame because I'm a fan of them, even if this was quite a poor match from them. Very dull.


Takeshi Morishima & Yutaka Yoshie vs Akitoshi Saito & Mohammed Yone
Saito performs an Iron Claw Slam on Morishima in honor of his fallen friend and tag partner, Bison Smith. When it appeared that Saito had the match won, Morishima kicks out and Saito gets flattened by Yoshie, which was quite funny considering it was just after the emotional tribute to Bison. Satisfactory big man match.
**½

Kenta Kobashi & Kensuke Sasaki vs Takuma Sano & Shuhei Taniguchi
Taniguchi's going to be a star one day and I was hoping he would get a pinfall over Kobashi to elevate himself, but Kobashi was the real star of the match. Even as he reaches the end of his career, he puts on a good match and even participates in a 'Tower of Doom' move. That's real fighting spirit. I wouldn't mind seeing Kobashi get one last GHC title shot before he calls it a night.
***

Kotaro Suzuki, Atsushi Aoki & Taiji Ishimori vs Yoshihiro Takayama, Yoshinobu Kanemaru & Genba Hirayanagi
A really fun juniors match..... with Takayama there. Jokes aside, Takayama fitted in this match surprising well, even if it did look like a freaking giant next to all those juniors. This match features one of the worst selling of a 619 known to man. Silly Takayama.
***¼

Naomichi Marufuji vs Takashi Sugiura
The first singles match of Marufuji I've seen and I came into this with very low expectations, after reading all the criticism Marufuji gets. Marufuji's flippy nonsense did annoy me in the beginning of the match, as it felt very unnecessary, but as the match progressed, I felt that it complimented the match. Marufuji gets absolutely murdered by some of Sugiura's elbows, which makes Misawa's look like a light slap. This match was a nice mix of stiff strikes and high flying moves. You can't go wrong with that.
****

GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship
Ricky Marvin vs Katsuhiko Nakajima
I never knew Marvin was such a fantastic seller. I was expecting a really quick match with little selling and Marvin sold his leg like a champ. Marvin continues to be awesome and hit a sick spinning plancha all the way into the crowd. He also hits a Bisontennial in tribute of Bison Smith, which even though it was extremely dangerous taking in account Marvin's height, it made me mark like a little girl. I can't say I've seen a better junior match than this in 2011.
****¼

Triple Crown Championship
Jun Akiyama (c) vs Taiyo Kea
Considering this was Akiyama's first defense and it's not even at an AJPW show, it's very obvious who wins this. It also didn't help the match that it had to go up after two solid MOTYCs. But all that aside, it was an enjoyable watch and it served it's purpose which was to plant the seeds for the future AJPW vs NOAH feud.
***¼

GHC Heavyweight Title
Go Shiozaki (c) vs. KENTA
Now this was truly epic. The match was so epic that it made the often silent Ariake Colosseum blow it's roof off. When KENTA kicked out of a number of Go's lariats and even no sold one, the crowd erupted. I do wish the match went on a bit longer though. I'd probably rate the match higher if I went in spoiler-free, but it didn't take away from the match too much.
****¼

Overall:
Even if you're just a casual fan of modern-day puro who just catches the big title matches on Youtube, I'd still recommend downloading this show. It has three(!) MOTYCs and the 3 hours just fly by.

So I just got my Super Dragon Evolution 3 in the mail today, and wow, Super Dragon/Taro mask vs. mask from RevPro is now one of my favorite matches; I'd say ****1/2.

Now hopefully Steen Wolf makes it here tomorrow.

You have no idea how sad it makes me to say that Generico was a part of such a disaster.
Generico wasn't even bad at all. Nor was Cabana really. His shit didn't get over, but that's because Haas and Benjamin flat out refused to let him get it over. It was like they were out to kill fun. Which would be great if their characters were douchebag heels who bumped awesomely and sold their asses off (for example, the Young Bucks), but they're supposed to be babyfaces and they cannot fucking take a decent bump or sell anything period.

I'd say Haas-Elgin and WGTT-Briscoes in Toronto were worse (Haas-Elgin gets my vote for worst match of the year, that was just laugh out loud awful), but yeah, Haas and Benjamin in that match was the worst performance I've seen out of anyone all year. Generico saved it from absolute worst of the year territory but god damn if Cabana quit ROH based what went down in that match I would not blame him one bit.

Wait, did Cabana actually quit ROH or did they stop booking him?

HOLY CRAP all 2005 - 2008 shows that are left are only $5? IVP might have just lost my business if there are some on ROH.com that I actually need.

I think they just stopped booking him. I certainly don't know for sure. But if he had actually quit because of that match, I wouldn't have blamed him, because it was that bad. I don't think he did.

@ Cactus... Most of the puro stuff doesn't go up in the review thread anymore. Ask platt though and he might add it.



Also Cabana was just not offered a contract by ROH.

Oh yeah Generico was the only saving grace in the match but he was playing FIP and Haas and Benjamin gave him nothing to work with by not playing to his character, not playing to an FIP spell and working really slow and really light. I thought Cabana was just as bad as Haas in that. Granted it didn't help that he tried to do his comedy shtick and again Haas and Benjamin wouldn't work with it. Cabana/Generico were obviously the babyface team in the match but Haas/Benjamin didn't fit into any sort of character dynamic at all. They made a poor attempt at working a STF style match and they basically played the role of heels but then wouldn't do anything heelish to get heat on either them or their opponent so you'd expect them to work as babyfaces but then they don't do any crowd interaction so why the fuck would anyone care not just about them but also the match. Basically they were just two guys who came out from the back to the ring to do some moves (and do them poorly) and pick up a win. Sprinkle the match with the botchtastic finish on top and .... ugh.

Generico's currently in my favourite and least favourite match of the year. Insane.

Didn't watch Haas vs Elgin. Couldn't put myself through a Haas singles match at that point. I didn't think the Toronto WGTT/Briscoes was as awful as the Generico/Cabana tag because it wasn't filled with botches and there was at least a sense of character dynamic in the match. The match was just totally irrelevant and not at all good.
