Kazuchika Okada vs Tetsuya Naito - NJPW 03.08.2012
Isn't on the level of their IWGP Title match but you shouldn't be expecting that from a G1 Day 2 match. This is however probably better or at least on par with the best stuff last years G1 produced and far exceeded my expectations for the rematch. Okada's an absolute star in this and I'm not one of those guys who's been throwing WOTY at him after great match of his. Some of the other matches he was fortunate to have great Naito and great Tanahashi performances despite being really good in them himself. Here he stole the show for himself and looked like a legit BITW. Leg selling is beautiful from Okada. Almost as beautiful as the dropkicks he hits. What I liked most was how they worked the match given the result. Okada's losing but damn it he's gonna look like a million dollars looking, maintain his legitimacy and work a match where things don't go his way so he can still look great despite taking the fall. One of the best things about New Japan right at the top of always attracting hot crowds for their big shows these days is that you know the finishing stretch is nearly always gonna take the match up to another level and not make you wish it ended 5 minutes go. They understand that the real drama is through both guys trying to hit their finisher that nobody kicks out of and not if their finisher will get the 3. Rainmaker reversals are wonderful, as is Okada's determination to hit HIS move. Stardust Press missed spot was wonderful too. Last 5 minutes are full of unreal amounts of drama and the crowd is fucking molten for everything they do.

****1/4

Can't wait to watch that. Haven't watched anything from the G1 yet, a few nights were on Dailymotion but I couldn't be bothered at the time.

Me neither. I don't want to randomly jump from Day 3 to Day 8 and back to Day 5, I will wait until every G1 hits internet.

You'll probably never watch any of it then in that case.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Toru Yano - NJPW 07.08.2012
Can be stop being surprised when these 2 have great matches now. This is the 3rd one in the space of 12 months. Match is all about Yano and his shtick being wonderful. Yano needs more appreciation as a worker.

NJPW King Of Pro Wrestling 8/10/12

Kazuchika Okada vs Karl Anderson
Great match. Okada continues his awesome streak and Anderson continues to impress me in a lot of areas. He really needs to make his offence lead somewhere though, thankfully this had Okada to add that to the match with all of his usual great neck work setting up for his finisher. Finishing run was bloody great and I was on the edge of my seat for most of it. ****

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki
Yeah, this was really great. The start is all about Tanahashi keeping his distance from Suzuki, and when he finally gets Suzuki were he wants him he acts like a dick and pays for it. Suzuki’s in control for a really good amount of time here, and his arm work is great, as is Tana’s selling, keeping his arm by his side and trying to strike with his other arm. It’s all good stuff, and then Tana finds and opening and goes after the leg. At this point I thought it was going to suffer slightly because of his tendency to go after the leg and then completely forget about it in the finishing run but that’s not what happened. The leg work is really good for a while, but it’s not enough to fully stop Suzuki and his onslaught on the arm. Submission trading is so much fun, and when Tana has the Figure Four locked in the match really picks up. The visual of Suzuki screaming and shouting at Tanahashi while he’s in the hold is amazing. Suzuki eventually goes to his strikes to wear Tanahashi down but he keeps going back to the leg as a cut off point and it works really well thanks to Suzuki’s great selling. Really both guys selling is top notch throughout the whole match. I loved each guy going for their bigger stuff but, especially Suzuki, not being able to hit it so resorting back to the limb they’d been working on. Some really nice exchanges in the finishing run, all the while keeping the selling and the limb work in the story of the match. This is one of Suzuki’s best performances ever, and Tanahashi was great too and nowhere near as annoying as he sometimes can be. Not as good as Okada/Tanahashi II and definitely not as good as Okada/Naito imo, but it’s not that far off them and it’s better than their WK match. ****1/4+

If nobody either uploads KOPW in non-rar format or puts it up on Youtube or Dailymotion soon, I think I may explode.
