On the topic of KENTA, legit great and one of the better wrestlers NOAH has. Calling someone a one trick pony doesn't really mean much unless you want to say guys like Vader shouldn't be champion because all they did was be a great big man. Not everyone in wrestling is built the same and if they honestly were, it would be boring.
Dude, his size has nothing to do with him being repetitive in, like, 9 out of 10 matches, especially when facing non-giants. He's at his best when working from behind against tough badasses (Takayama, Akiyama), but everything else is same old shit. Yeah, I said it. Not necessarily bad, but same, over and over again. For example, watch his ROH DVD, and you'll see what I'm talking about. And that's just one example.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

The Nakamura/Sakuraba segment on the tag last weekend did nothing to make me care for their match. I'm going into the Sakuraba and Shibata matches with no expectations and that way I won't be disappointed by either. Sakuraba match will probably be mostly worked on the mat whereas Makabe/Shibata will probably be more of a slugfest. I'm looking forward to that one more I'd say. Honestly, Tanahashi/Okada is the only match for WK that I'm expecting to deliver a great match but the card still looks good. Won't be Dominion/KOPW type quality card as far as match quality goes.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

Yeah...I think the hype of New Japan in general might be getting to me.

As soon as I saw Laughter7's match at King, I thought of how good Sakuraba/Nakamura will be. Maybe I overestimated what Sakuraba can do in singles. I still think its gotta be great, as Nakamura is a personal favorite of mine.

I'm kinda meh on Makabe, but I think shibata's really got it.

I seem to be the only person who has no problem seeing another round of Suzuki vs. Nagata. I always love their stuff.

I also think the Triple Juniors match should be a lot of fun. I love Ibushi and Low Ki, and Devitt is ok. the Triple threat structure should play to his strengths.

I really love Killer Elite Squad. And by that I mean Archer. Anderson should do well in that match and Goto does pretty well in tags.

Again, maybe I'm a slave to the hype machine, but I think even besides the obviously awesomeness of the title match, that the show should be really good.

Oh don't worry. I'm very much in the hype machine as well. I'm as excited about this card as you are.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

There's no reason why every important match wont be good. Tanaka/Benjamin will probably suck but fine. Forgot to mention the Tag League Finals but I really liked the Final. Only thing missing to make it a really good/great match was a hot crowd. Hopefully Tokyo Dome crowd gives them that. Archer's improved ten fold since they picked him up and he's got his badass character down to a tee now and Smith works really well with him. Took me ages to figure out what KES on their pants meant. Amused me while I thought it was just simply KES and didn't stand for Killer Elite Squad. Archer and Smith worked a great control segment though in the sense that they didn't work a control segment like a robotic wrestling machine and looked natural in control. Anderson is always good and Goto was just there but he was fine. Thought it was a much better match than people were crediting it for. The Laughter7 tag didn't work for me. Ishii was awesome in it and Shibata had his moments. Nakamura/Sakuraba parts didn't do anything for me. Laughter7 tags need to more fast paced and stiff with hot crowd to work. Bit more heat to it and it could have been great.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

If the hype blinds me then so be it. Haven't been let down to a significant degree by NJPW all year. Heading into Wrestle Kingdom my expectations are high due to the fact. If it doesn't trump KOPW then oh well. That PPV was on a different level as far as quality goes. Wouldn't expect lots to up and beat down right away.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

At the Budokan show Kobashi just announced his retirement. He said that nobody has forced him to retire and that he wants one more future match.

Big blow to NOAH but I know that if he does have one more match it will be a big draw. He's suffered multiple injuries in the past 5 years so I'm happy that he's going out before it became any more serious.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

End of an era.

Kobashi is the man. Cancer couldn't stop him. That alone makes it cool to hear he's retiring all on his own accord. Although I know the selfish fan in me always wants more.

Question time: who gets his final match?

I'd love to see Kobashi get once last shot at Morishima's GHC title. Even though we know who would win, I think it would be special to let him go out facing the top guy.

Re: Official Puro Results/Spoilers Discussion Thread (BEWARE OF THE SPOILERS)

Nah, it's gonna be a tag match, probably. Sad news, but I'm happy too, because I don't want to see him losing his life over there.
