Awesome.

I've got them Precious Memphis matches on my USB to watch. I was gonna watch them a few days ago but didn't get time. Sami/Mastiff is on youtube btw people so you've got no excuse to not watch it. It's only like 10 minutes so there's definitely no excuses.

Watched these days ago so brief words


Shinsuke Nakamura & Tomohiro Ishii vs Minoru Suzuki & Kengo Mashimo - NJPW 24.11.2012
Who'da thunk a Nakamura/Ishii team would produce so much greatness. This is all about Nakamura and Suzuki being awesome with Ishii starring in his more traditional supporting role. Leg work during the control segment gives it more focus and makes it instantly better. Nakamura's selling is really great too and it renders his cutoff knees useless. Wanted him to sell it a touch more after the hot tag but he didn't totally ignore it and it wasn't the longest workover ever. Ishii off the hot tag is awesome. Mashimo doesn't really add anything but he's fine. Nakamura and Ishii are the best babyface team that never was.

****1/4

Kazuchika Okada & YOSHI-HASHI vs Minoru Suzuki & Kengo Mashimo - NJPW 25.11.2012
And this rounds off a pretty awesome round robin between these 3 teams. This is all about Okada/Suzuki but thankfully the majority of the match is Okada/Suzuki. Okada getting punked out and schooled by Suzuki was great and made him step the intensity up which was a nice change of pace in Okada's performances. Arm selling was really good as usual from Okada. Not that it needed, confirmed but if it did then certainly confirmed how great Okada/Suzuki can and hopefully will be.

****

New Puro shows go up here btw. It's the same guy who does the packs on XWT but he posts them there first. Plus you get parallel downloads on Sendspace so yay!. Don't spread the link around willy nilly though.

Sami Callihan vs Dave Mastiff, SWE (2/24/12)

Fun little match here. Mastiff is pretty impressive,real agile for his size with some good offence and works a very old school big man style. As WOOLCOCK said ( Gonna take time to get used to that name) He made a very good heel for an underdog to work off and this is where Sami excels. Really basic fun match with a simple big vs little man story. ***1/2

I'm still not sold on Sami though. I'm starting to warm to him somewhat but still don't see the hype like many labeling WOTY. His mannerisms really annoy me. His over the top facial expressions, random shouting and umm , why does he have to dribble so much, just annoy me. It's the same mannerisms that people complain about Davey. Don't know how Sami is any different. I don't know , just don't think Sami's my thing. I can see why he appeals to people though. I'll give him credit where credit is due, he can take one hell of a beating. With the right opponent beating the shit out of him it can make for a fun match and he does play a good face in peril bar the annoying mannerisms.

Dragon Gate: USA - Two out of Three Falls Match

El Generico vs Sami Callihan ~ ****


"Like it. Love it. I might not be the biggest dog in the fight, but I'm the scariest. And I'm the best." - Sami Callihan

GREAT match. Dead crowd didn't even effect it for me. SURE...would it have been loads more fun with a crowd eating it up instead of sitting on their hands or chanting OLE at sporadic moments, but fuck it. These guys didn't need them to make something special. Callihan continues to show me that I'm correct in knowing he's fantastic (intense cocaine fueled mannerisms + drooling and all) and El Generico continues to increase my man-crush ever more. Generico sure knows how to sell an injury too. Hot damn he's the Best in the motherfucking World, I swear to science.

I agree about Generico ,even the best in the world part. But not so much for the Sami bit.

Maybe I have to watch more of his 2012 work? He had a run in BJW right? Really like his Cole and Generico matches but some of his PWG stuff kinda put me off him.

Any suggestions to try lure me on the Sami bandwagon? Links would be appreciated.

I can definitely see you digging everything, as well as the aforementioned vivalabrave. I've seen you're still a fan of the quirkier and more obscure acts in wrestling where people don't take themselves overly seriously and that's a tailor made attitude to loving Precious. Cage Match is everything you want from a Memphis indy. Very simple and not trying to force a classic, ton of great heel antics and violent offence, nutty bumps and the cage threatening to give way on a number of occasions.

Supposedly his CZW work is some of his best this year. I've seen a Rich Swann match from January as well as matches versus AR Fox and Alex Colon get a lot of pimping for being very violent, having great selling and build to some of the bigger spots. I've only seen the 3/26 Sasaki match from BJW and truth be told I found it passable at best. They mostly worked a fight to gain the upperhand in a series of strike exchanges and I found some of Sami's verbal cries and gesturing to just be a little too much when it would have worked better in moderation. There's also a really awkward miscommunication spot where Sami is supposed to hit the ringpost but Sasaki doesn't move so Sami still goes through with the spot unaware and therefore somehow misses him.

The Finlay rematch from EVOLVE 11 and the WXW match are also supposedly two of his better outings, though like the first match they're by no means universally loved. I'm still struggling to track down a link for either of the matches as well as the CZW stuff so can't help with much else I'm afraid. Seabs also pimped a Marty Scrull/Callihan match from IPW but again I can only find a couple of minutes of the match on Youtube.

EDIT: Dates for his most pimped matches if it helps with tracking down a link in a pack at a torrent site -

vs Rich Swann, CZW 1/14
vs DJ Hyde, CZW 2/11
vs Finlay, WXW 3/2
vs Finlay, EVOLVE 4/13
vs AR Fox, CZW 4/14
vs Alex Colon, CZW 4/14
vs AR Fox, EVOLVE 5/11
vs John Morrison, 2CW 8/3 http://vimeo.com/52308729
vs Willie Mack, PWG 9/1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdHR3NCgROc

2/3 Falls match link.

Yeah, he worked BJW. Tons of the matches are up on dailymotion too. Links are all right next to the Generico/Sami match I posted.

I'm plenty sold on him. I guess others just don't see it. And it's always for his mannerisms too more so than purely his whole in ring aspect. Fair enough. There is something about Kofi Kingston I despise. Granted, he's a shit wrestler too.

Yep, need to hop on the train myself and watch his CZW work. 60 minute Ironman vs Drake Younger is a must. Could be a very, VERY long winded match. I'm down for it though. Alex Colon is really a hot prospect right now so looking forward to his most recent meetings vs Sami.

I was going to watch the 3/26 match vs Sasaki after I slam through the Smash Bros vs Young Bucks vs Future Shock from PWG. I'll hope I find it to be quite good. I personally LOVED the Finlay matches.

PWG - Failure To Communicate

El Generico & Kenny Omega vs The Young Bucks ~ ****1/4


No need for a lengthy review as I can't say anything different than what has been said for this match. Must see. I enjoyed Generico being a supporting player in the bout. Glad it got to be more about Omega considering it was his first match in PWG in nearly 3 years. Generico turned it up at the end with the SAVE~! New age tag team wrestling done like this is always a win. Young Bucks for best tag team in the universe atm? Yeah. I'd say so. AVALANCHE CROYT'S WRATH? WHAT THE?! YES.

I loved the first Finlay encounter as well. Perfect setting for Sami and it really made me consider him to be very good (think it might have been the first match I actually saw of him in full) as I didn't imagine many guys on the major independent scene could take and sell that sort of beating the way Callihan did. Bunch of very nice subtle moments in the match from Finlay and especially in the form of Callihan breaking out the ring rope counter Finlay made a staple of his in his 2006 comeback. Also loved Finlay poking fun at the EVOLVE rules and just kicking Callihan in the knee when he dares him to a straight fight. That being said I've seen people critique the match and argue it to not be very good. Personally I didn't find much fault in the selling, structure, story, build, offence and general layout of the match. I thought the finishing stretch was balanced perfectly between making Callihan look strong and not going too long in the process as well. I am a huge Finlay fan though and pretty much consider his style to be near enough my favourite formula going today.

You may enjoy the Sasaki match, but personally matches where two guys just trade strike exchanges without the proper control and struggle in hitting the strikes don't really impress me. Hashimoto and co working to make their comebacks and selling the strikes I can get behind, two guys just standing still and waiting to be chopped/punched no matter how much I can see the story they're trying to tell just never wows me and always makes it a chore to sit through the entire match.

Hmm. All the reviews I saw were positive. I personally don't see how one could find faults in the first Finlay/Callihan match. That's me.

We'll see how it goes for me. I prefer strike exchanges done in a more intense fashion over the way you described, granted I can get behind a "can you top this, motherfucker?" type deal. Reminds me a lot of some Necro Butcher exchanges.
