Mutoh vs. Akiyama is minute for minute the best match that has taken place in 2012.

I'm guessing you haven't seen Naito/Okada

I actually just may be the biggest New Japan mark on the western web actually lol. I say minute for minute because there were chunks in Naito/Okada that went on too long/were time wasters. I think Okada/Tanahashi was the better match anyway. Everything mattered in this one and no time was wasted. Two stellar performances with recurring themes and selling that mattered in the end. Many layers,a terrific beginning, middle and end. Felt like a mid 2000s NOAH match would, all satisfying, epic and logical. Very few holes. But seeing it at the end of that show may alter opinions because of what came before it. I just watched the isolated Triple Crown match first so I had no show burnout or that prejudice that certain shows give for later matches, ya know? Anyway, I'm just another opinion so carry on.

I definitely see what your saying about Mutoh/Akiyama, there were moments of brilliance in there and it was great fun to watch, but it was just lacking that extra something to take it over the edge for me. Definitely two great performances though.

Akiyama vs. Mutoh blows Naito vs. Rainmaker out of the water.

Akiyama/Mutoh was really, really great (***3/4), but no way it's better than Tanahashi/MiSu (****1/4), Tanahashi/Okada (****1/4), Okada/Naito (****3/4) and Nakajima/SHINGO (****1/4). Hell, it was not even the MOTN, because the All Asia tag, Omega/Kondo and Nagata/Kono were truly excellent matches (****+). But shit, it just tells you how awesome the whole show was, with three MOTYCs and Akiyama/Mutoh.

I liked it more than Tana/Okada but I definitely egree with the other matches. I also have Go/Morishima and Sekimoto/Suwama ahead of it.

Motoh/Akiyama was definitely my favourite match on that show though.

Uh, oh... Totally forgot about Go/Shima. I have it at ****1/4. Epic slugfest. I alson need to catch up with Dragon Gate Japan, I'm pretty sure there is a **** here and there. CIMA/PAC and Jimmys/TakaYAMA matches sound really promising.

JoeRulz, that show re-instated my love for Dragon Gate.

They finally got rid of the shitty nonsense and focused on what brought them to the dance - great high-flying. Just get all three matches from the show and you won't be disappointed. The first is flashy and hellishly fun, the second was very good (despite not truly liking the ending too much) and the final was great. Matt_Yoda had a great review for it.

Screw over-booked, over-done, over-boring No-Ropes crappiness. If DG can continue doing stuff like this, then I'll be happy.

I agree, nothing has touched Okada/Naito levels yet, imo.

Yoshihito Sasaki vs Sami Callihan - BJW 26/3/12

God damn is Sami annoying. But at the same time, the guy is good enough for me to want to see someone beat the living shit out of him and not just skip his matches. This match was very good, they did more than enough in only 11 minutes with a lot of STIFF chops, elbows and spit (yeah...). Sami kicked out one too many times for my liking but the final sequence was pretty great overall and leaved me wanting to see a tie-breaker between this guys. Haven't seen the match in England, but this was the best out of their other 3 encounters.

***3/4-****

Daisuke Sekimoto vs Bad Bones - BJW 26/3/12

Fucking LOVED Bones doing the "YES!" gimmick and Korakuen going along with him (even chanting NO! to Daisuke's chops and elbows), the look of disgust on Sekimoto's face and then him just throwing Bones to the first rows of chairs was freaking priceless . Really simple and fun match.

***1/2-***3/4

Shinya Ishikawa, Shinobu & Takumi Tsukamoto vs Yuji Okabayashi, Kazuki Hashimoto & Masashi Otani - BJW 26/3/12


The usual Strong BJ fun. Kazuki steps up as Shinobu's new enemy, Otani and Tsukamoto work well together and we might have something interesting in our hands with Ishikawa and Yuji...there are a couple of botches, but it's still very enjoyable.

***1/2

Yoshihito Sasaki vs Daisuke Sekimoto - BJW 26/3/12

Brilliant, just brilliant. I was disappointed with Daisuke's work in the Bad Bones match (specially his control section) but man did the guy stepped up in the final. And Yoshihiko....oh man, his work as the underdog was fucking beautiful. Sekimoto gains control in the first minute and proceeds to work over Sasaki's neck, from then on it's all about Yoshihito working from behind trying to overcome Daisuke's brilliant work over his neck. Both men executed their roles to perfection and Korakuen understood what this was all about. The final minutes are outstanding and if you are not rooting for Yoshihito then you don't have a fucking soul. GO WATCH THIS!!

****1/2
