Tetsuya Naito vs Kazuchika Okada (NJPW G1 Climax 8/3) - **** 1/4 (Very close to calling this a 4.5 star match but it ended a little shorter than I would have liked. The finishing sequence was awesome.

The heels are really rocking that SWAG. If only Goto would be replaced with Makabe then it would be the ultimate trios match for me. Goto is fine enough though.

You know a match is good when 20 minutes feels too short.

things I love about that Trios match:
1. Ishii being a boss
2. Ishii getting the whole crowd in Korakuen (right?) to cheer for him...even over Tanahashi
3. Shinsuke rushing at Goto for Boma Ye only for Naito to spring off Goto into a dropkick
4. The interplay between Tanahashi and Naito leading to tension

I'm still not into Makabe yet, so for me, it would have to be Nagata or Anderson instead of goto, but I totally agree on everything else.

I'll probably cave in and watch all these tonight. #toomuchwrestlingtowatch

Makabe has lots of charisma. I find him very appealing. The modern day Japanese Bruiser Brody. Which is a compliment I know he'll appreciate.

Okada/Naito 2 is top of my to watch list for this year. Then probably the two multi-man tags that have been pimped the last few pages. Can't think of anything else I feel like watching that's recent since I'm trying to get started with Parks & Recreation and I'd imagine that will end up stealing most of my time.

I know Seabs would say Dean Allmark, but then I'm sure he'd tell me to watch Parks over him?

I don't watch ROH or most of the other major Indies anymore so it's a lot easier to catch more obscure matches on youtube. Same for Japan bar New Japan right now.

By the way....

Naito vs. Okada from G1 is fantastic. Like an awesome shorter version of their first match. The leg work is excellent, again. The finishing stretch is also fantastic. in the ****1/4 range, I think.
Yeah that match was fantastic. Not enough people have watched it for sure. That was the match that got me taking Okada seriously as possible WOTY for 2012.

This made the match better.

Nothing is worth watching over PARKS. Shit, nothing is worth DOING over PARKS.

Thought so .

Tetsuya Naito vs. Kazuchika Okada (NJPW G1 Climax 8/3/12)
Brilliant match. Not quite as good as their first match, but seriously it’s not that far off it either. Great leg work to set up Naito’s cut off spots by going after the leg and amazing selling from Okada. Naito has really impressed me this year, so it’s a shame about his injury. Okada is just brilliant at everything. One thing I loved about their first match was how Naito started going after his big moves because Okada started to find ways to hit his big moves, Naito forgot about his game plan and it cost him. Well, they did that again here and it was great, only this time Naito had brand new ways to avoid the Rainmaker (which were genuinely fucking incredible by the way), and was able to hit that deadly combo he wasn’t able to in their previous match. Great, great stuff with a great story and a fantastic mark out central finishing run. ****¼

Oh yeah, and I swear these New Japan guys just have a natural ability to make the Figure Four leg lock a fucking amazing spot.

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Hirooki Goto & Tetsuya Naito vs. Kazuchika Okada, Shinsuke Nakamura & Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW 10/6/12)
Really fun match. Ishii and Okada were the best things in this match, closely followed by Naito. Liked the tension between Tana and Naito too. Goto kind of completely faded out after he got the hot tag which was weird. Some great exchanges between all 6 guys and a lot of fun. Definitely recommended. ***3/4 - ****

I'm actually really really really worried about this. Knee injuries are bad news. I hope he can still wrestle the same high flying style when he comes back. I just always remember Mark Briscoe and how all the of the high flying awesomeness stopped after his 2008 knee injury. The Springboard Doomsday became a normal doomsday and they were never the same. Hopefully Naito has a full recovery and doesn't lose the style that set him apart. He had a great 2012.

Not to be THAT GUY but Naito's leg submission is actually an inverted Figure Four. I think its his own creation.

Please, don't even begin to speculate this knee injury could ruin anything about Naito's career. I wouldn't be able to take it.
