Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yoshiaki Fujiwara vs. Super Tiger (9/7/84) is excellent. Probably the best Shoot style match that I have seen.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

look at Yeah1993 pimping Hash matches, it's almost as if he actually watched them...I only he wrote a review about them to be sure that he did

I would add to that list the 93' Hase match, the 94' Liger match, 96' vs Takada (2nd best IWGP defense behind the Hase one, imo) and the Zero-1 debut show main event tag against Misawa/Akiyama.

ohhh, and he had an amazing feud against Yamazaki.

Interested to see what gems people discover when Death-Valley works on that AWA list.
the title matches they have against each other are awesome. (the 86' match

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Han/Tamura is my GOAT shoot style match, but Fujiwara/Sayama is an awesome series and contrast of styles and definitely worth watching. Think the date of their best match is 9/11 or 11/9 depending on what dates you go by.

Also add Hashimoto vs Fujiwara 1994 for the IWGP Title as an essential Hash match to watch, Fujiwara establishes his amazing grappling and Hashi has to find ways to go on the offensive whilst worrying about exposing a limb for Fujiwara to hook. Great chess style match that you'll love if you watch a lot of Hash matches and see how differently he's forced to work for the majority of the match, plus its a rare Fujiwara title match so the crowd are really up for it.

Also check out the 1993 NJPW/WAR feud which progressed Hashimoto/Tenryu and produced some truly great singles and tag matches filled with stiff strikes, HATE and nuclear crowds.

Agreed on Kobashi/Misawa 2003 not being near their best, found it to be reliant at times on more headrops which is the way Misawa wanted NOAH to be IIRC, Bubz is spot on with the 20/1/97 love as their best match. I also adored one of their 30 minute draws (think it was in the Champions Carnival) on last watch, pretty sure Kawada is able to beat Misawa and Kobashi later on in the tournament as a result of both men being weakened from the match.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

meh, didn't thought the Hash/Fujiwara match was more than "good". The fact that I watched it with huge expectations didn't help though.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

think I had it at ****1/4, was on a huge kick of Fujiwara at the time and adored the stop and start nature of each exchange, as well as Hashimoto being constantly outwitted and wrestled in the beginning and even his patented strikes being an opportunity for Fujiwara to regain control, made Hashimoto look like such an underdog without even having to utilise many sequences, such is the strength of Fujiwara's presence and charisma.

Watch it again, love it and come back to me

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

lol nah man, I watched not too long ago (1-2 months) gotta wait a while longer before watching it again.

it's a fun match and very watchable, but I wouldn't put it up there with Hash's best performances.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah I mean I think Fujiwara makes the match (not to say Hash is bad, but the focus is put on showing off Fujiwara to make Hash's story/struggle that much greater) and as I said seeing how different and cautious the match is compared to a lot of Hash matches really made me appreciate it so much more. Maybe its because I'm a huge Fujiwara mark but its one of those matches where I was glued to the screen and adored how they stopped and started and create tension in each exchange, I dunno it felt like such an organic fight and match. Shoot style executed entirely in pro style if you will.

Want to watch Tenryu/Fujiwara 1997 again at some point, or just TENRYU in general.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Watch Tenryu vs Hashimoto 2/17/94, now THAT's a classic .

I spent years looking for that match and it even surpassed my stupid high expectations once I got to watch that damn war. The best match they had with each other and the one that legitimized Hash as THE MAN in New Japan.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

Yeah I'm going on a puro and lucha kick soon, burnt out a bit on American wrestling with how much WCW I watched for the poll as well as the insane amount of Lawler I watched in a short space of time.

Satanico, Tenryu, Hashimoto and Liger:



once I finish that god damn Law assignment
