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

I'm thinking Shibata will go back to tags with Goto, hopefully winning the tag titles. I'm okay with that actually cause even though I love Shibata, he does need to tone it down a bit if he's make the main event.

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

Yeah, that match with Goto was something else. Perhaps the worst "wrestling" match I've seen out of him in a singles capacity. He can't be legit murdering the big 3 (or 4 if we include AJ now) in main events.

I for everybody. Some I for more than others.

Best matches of all-time:
1. Misawa/Kobashi vs. Taue/Kawada - 6/9/95
2. Kobashi/Kikuchi vs. Can-Ams - 5/25/92
3. Misawa vs. Kobashi - 3/1/03
4. Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin - WM 13
5. Okada vs. Tanahashi - 4/7/13
6. HBK vs. Undertaker - WM 25
7. Kobashi vs. Joe - ROH
8. Bryan Danielson vs. KENTA - Glory By Honor V Night 2
9. Nigel McGuinness vs. Austin Aries - Rising Above 2007
10.CM Punk vs. John Cena - MitB 2011

Never denied their place in history or that Bullet Club is something original even in Japan, just that they're not integral to the success of Japanese wrestling and that New Japan wouldn't be any worse off without them.

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

- I was pulling for Ishii to win G1 with Shibata as the 2nd choose and between Okada & Nakamura i'd rather have Nakamura win it. Really wanna see Ishii & Shibata climb the ranks along with Honma, cause i have no interest in seeing another Styles/Okada or Tanahashi/Okada match.

- I was curious about Bullet Club when it formed but soured on it as i saw the impact they had on matches, after last years G1 i wasn't feeling the group based on the quality of Devitt's matches going down cause of his cheating and the groups interference. The Young Bucks, Styles, Gallows & Yujiro joining just left me asking why ?. Them holding must of the gold in the company is something i've never wanted from any group, especially when there's 6 championships they could compete for. If i had it my way the group would only consist of Anderson, Fale, Gallows & The Young Bucks.

- Both Tanahashi/Styles & Okada/Nakamura were disappointing, while Tanahashi/Styles had its moments Okada/Nakamura was really nothing till the finishing stretch.

G1 Climax Finals

Sakuraba, Yano & HASHI/Suzuki, Iizuka & Benjamin * decent
Liger, Cpt NJ/Cole, Bennett * decent
reDRagon/ Timesplitters *** good
Naito/Honma *** good
Anderson/Ishii ** ok
Shibata/Goto **** great
Tanahasi/Styles *** good
Okada/Nakamura **1/2

Best G1 Matches

Top 3
Styles/Suzuki (day7) ****
Nagata/Shibata (day7) ****
Ishii/Honma (day4) ****

Shibata/Nakamura (day1) ****1/2 very good
Kojima/Ishii (day2) ***1/2 very good
Tanahashi/Shibata (day4) ***1/2 very good
Tanahashi/Ishii (day6) ***1/2 very good
Nakamura/Ishii (day7) **** great
Honma/Shibata (day8)**** great
Ishii/Shibata (day10) ****great
Ishii/Nagata (day11) **** great

I wouldn't worry too much about Jarrett. WCW fans didn't really see much of a nWo Muta and Chono, it was just a swerve for a pop. Nothing more.

March FAVE 5
1. Swagsuke Nakamura 2. Daniel Bryan 3. Cesaro 4. Brock Lesnar 5. Johnny Mundo

When Shelley was selling that arm, I thought he saw a ghost. I hope Kyle is feeling better after that double stomp from the guillotine.

I disagree with this. To each his own tho.

Fortunately, I'm sure we'll see some rematches down the road here, so hopefully they can top their G1 finals performances.

[WWE] Brock Lesnar - Daniel Bryan - Neville
[NXT] Kevin Owens - Finn Bálor - Charlotte
[NJPW] Katsuyori Shibata - Kazuchika Okada - Shinsuke Nakamura - Kota Ibushi - Tomoaki Honma - Hiroshi Tanahashi - Minoru Suzuki
[LU] Prince Puma
[Indies] Jay Briscoe - Zach Sabre Jr.
[Joshi] Io Shirai - Sendai Sachiko - Koguma - KANA

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

Question: Would the NJPW fans have bought Gaijin AJ Styles as a main event level face? I was just thinking that Styles could have been better served as a top face and being sort of a comrade of Tanahashi for the company instead of being a member of the Bullet Club. Maybe this has already been talked about.

I don't think at first but over time, I could see it. When was the last time a Gaijin face was champ tho?
