Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Kobashi vs Takayama was the shit. Actually just Takayama is the shit.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I preferred their 2000 match to the 2004 one. Kobashi gets his arm obliterated again but sells it quite a bit better throughout including the finishing stretch and his final flurry came off much better to me when I rewatched them not long ago.

The moonsault in the 2004 match still makes me cringe though.

And agreed on the Takayama love, #1 guy in Puro at the minute that I can watch endlessly and never tire/find fault with.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Its a shame Tak had that stroke because he should be dominating the world right now as a single competitor.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Some of the bumps he's taken post stroke have been just horrific as well, guy is about as believable as they come as a monster who the top babyfaces have no answer for.

Still need to track down his AJPW title match in 2009 was SUWAMA. Caught the highlights on Youtube and it looked Vintage Takayama.

His 2002 run was also insanely good

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I'm not a huge fan of Chono (hit or miss IMO) but his G-1 Finals bout against Big Tak in '02 was really great. Not to mension the vastly overlooked early Noah bouts between Misawa & Tak.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I agree with you, McQueen and Caida. Takayama-san is probably the most enjoyable puro wrestler in last 11 years. I just LOVE that son of a bitch, and his non-puro attitude, his close fist punches, his devastating knees, his fucked up face, his fucked up voice. He doesn't care about "respect", he just wants to beat the hell out of the people, especially those young "Kawada wannabes" punks. Takayama is like Japanese version of Andre The Giant.
And yes, those post-stroke bumps he took are incredible, I guess he just doesn't care, lol. Long live Everest!

I agree. Incredible matches, and the 2002 one is a five star match in my book. I also loved the Takayama/KENSKEY slugfests.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I still have never seen the 2000 Kobashi/Takayama. The 04 one is one of the 8-10 or so best matches of the decade for me. The last five minutes are just unbelievable.

There you go. Very similar to the 2004 match but I just preferred Kobashi's selling in this one and Takayama basically having the match that signified his talent also puts it up a few notches.

. Guy is just brilliant with the striking and unlike a lot of guys who try to throw big bombs he knows how to make it into a story and put over a young guy. Not to mention he's probably a top 3 control segment worker around the world, just amazing.

I loved their 2001 match and haven't seen the 2002 one in forever, both were sensational though.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Holy fuck, Takayama had a stroke?

Christ, here I though Kobashi was all badass for coming back after cancer.
