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

Finally watched the show. Great stuff. Dave calling every New Japan PPV now one of the best shows he's ever seen is getting tiresome.

Prelim matches were nothing matches. Ishii and them juniors shouldn't be in prelim matches though when Tanaka vs Benjamin is on the card.

8 man was fun. Akebono/Sapp stuff was really fun. Lack of shine for Yano and Strong Man was sad though. Served it's purpose well.

Tanaka/Benjamin was horrible. Yujiro's interfering was ridiculous, Benjamin looked really lazy, Tanaka's no good and the setup for the Sliding D always looked horrendous. Pointless title, pointless title holder, pointless title challenger, pointless match. Ishii/Tanaka in Korakuen should be great though as long as Tanaka doesn't go out there with too much of a let's have a classic mentality.

Tag Title match didn't do much for me. Felt like they just went into a long finishing stretch from the off. Smith and Archer are great in this role right now, just need to give them better opponents. TenKoji again? They're probably taking the belts back then sadly.

Nagata/Suzuki I thought was good but not great. Suzuki's on a tear right now and this was another amazing solo performance from him. ***1/2

Jr. 3 way was fun but nothing memorable besides Ki. Thought he was awesome in this and I've missed him being this good. Working a Tokyo Dome match in that outfit helps I guess. Devitt/Taguchi just being randomly announced feels desperate. That should be a bigger match really coming off BOSJ. ***3/4

TenKoji tag was whatever besides Ohtani being the worlds greatest. Palm of his hand people.

Makabe/Shibata I thought was really good and served it's purpose. I'll talk about the top 3 matches more in the MOTYC Thread. Makabe looking so dominant and one sided at the end was the only sour patch on it. ***3/4

Nakamura/Sakuraba was MOTN. Just what I wanted it to be. ****+

Bit let down by Okada/Tanahashi. Dominion match blew it away. Okada not winning was baffling but understandable if the WWE rumours are true. I hope they're not. ****

Can't stop thinking about how the show might have gone without the Kidani wackyness. Shame that Shibata and Sakuraba are done because their run had more legs and they produced two really good matches here. I really wouldn't rule out Anderson winning the belt. Convinced Tanahashi winning was a late change so I think they'll move the title onto someone new soon. Anderson fits. Super over right now and they put him in the G1 Final. They're normally pretty consistent in making the next challenger look strong on the previous PPV which also makes me think Anderson may be a quick fix title match to switch the title in a new direction. It'd be a good move I think. There really isn't anyone fresh that Tanahashi can face in main events. I get he's the company ace but eventually someone else needs a go on top to create fresh matches. The biggest problem with guys like Tanahashi and Cena is how to keep them as the company ace without being in the title picture.

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

I'm attempting to get into watching Japanese pro wrestling (NJPW only at the moment) but it's pretty hard considering the language barrier and because of this, I have no clue what exactly is going on outside of two guys fighting.

Is there a site that would help English-only speakers such as myself figure out what exactly is going on in the promotion? Also, what are the biggest storylines/feuds going on in NJPW so I have somewhat of an idea as to what is going on?

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

Was I the only one who found Tanaka vs Shelton to be quite a bit of FUN?

perhaps, perhaps. I did with the TenKoji vs Mutoh/Ohtani match too. I Meltzer'ed this show.

The tenKoji match was awesome. Every bit as good as Shibata/Makabe, at the very least.

I actually really liked Benjamin/Tanaka when it was live. The rewatch brought it down, but Yujiro was great in it.

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

The only problem I had with the event was Ishii not being in the opener. Or on the card in general. Liger too...but I get that one. I can't believe Tiger Mask IV still has a job. Probably the worst worker on the roster today.

Not as long as Taguchi exists.

Tanaka/Benjamin was not bad. Not good either. **
